Same-sex couples are one small part of a large, vibrant market and need many of the same services as heterosexual couples. But all wedding templates are not created equal for these couples. This is especially true for wedding photographers and the poses they have been trained to use when conducting engagement shoots and photographing weddings.

What works for John and Barbara, won’t necessarily work for Matthew and Rick, let alone Jill and Louise.

Enter veteran wedding photographer, Thea Dodds of Authentic Eye Photography, and same-sex wedding pioneer, Kathryn Hamm of GayWeddings, who have teamed up to create this groundbreaking book and visual guide, which features more than 180 images (of 72 couples!) by 48 talented gay and lesbian wedding photographers, and provides needed support to wedding photographers who must revisit the rules of traditional wedding and engagement portrait posing and develop an expanded skill set to better serve all couples in today’s dynamic wedding market.
