Hamm Signs New Art of Capturing LoveFresh off her recent appearances in Mother Jones, BuzzFeed, The Week, PopSugar, and HuffPost TV, same-sex wedding expert and GayWeddings.com president Kathryn Hamm will appear and give a talk and livestreamed photo presentation on THE NEW ART OF CAPTURING LOVE—the first book of LGBTQ wedding photos—at Books & Books in Coral Gables on Monday, June 2.

Featuring the work of 48 photographers and the weddings of 72 LGBTQ couples in 180 photos,  THE NEW ART OF CAPTURING LOVE shatters the “old standards” of wedding and engagement photography by showing how inappropriate old standards can be for today’s diverse couples, then shares easy-to-implement poses and techniques that can be applied to any couple (and wedding party), no matter their orientation, to create lasting memories.

With nearly half of the states in the US (and 13 countries) currently recognizing same-sex marriage or civil unions, the market for LGBTQ weddings is one of the fastest growing segments in the wedding industry, offering great opportunity for today’s wedding photographers. These are exciting times for marriage equality—but capturing portraits in this new market requires a new approach to posing, which until now has been almost exclusively oriented toward pairing a larger man in black with a smaller woman in white. What works for Jack and Jill won’t necessarily work for Jack and Michael, let alone Jill and Louise.

In attendance:

Kathryn Hamm, president of GayWeddings.com and co-author THE NEW ART OF CAPTURING LOVE

Featured couples and photographers, TBD
