After being in the wedding industry for nearly a decade, I have noticed little to no increase in representation for LGBTQIA+ couples among major publications. After having a handful of LGBTQIA+ couples inquire with me before I had them represented in my work, I realized that it's daunting for couples to reach out to vendors that don't have people like them in their portfolio. LGBTQIA+ couples operate under the assumption of rejection before they've even inquired, because they are used to not being supported. I'm on a mission to increase their representation in the wedding industry, give photographers and other vendors opportunities to get representation in their work without having to book a wedding, and to simply show that love is love.
