I just updated my wedding portfolios with a recent wedding I photographed for longtime partners Kevin and John. After over two decades together the story of their engagement was touching. As legal gay marriage was starting to look like a more realistic possibility, together they agreed that they would get married when it became legal in New York State. We live in such a hyper-connected world and naturally, Kevin first heard the news that gay marriage passed in New York while he was on an airplane that was about to take off. Knowing that he’d be on an airplane for the next several hours he promptly jotted off a text message to John asking,
“Will you marry me?”
Naturally John said yes and a year later they had a wonderful celebration with friends and family at the Glasshouse Studios in Chelsea overlooking Hudson River as the sun set over New Jersey.
