Ever since the state of California legalized same-sex marriage on June 26, 2013, I have been photographing same-sex couples traveled from all over the United States and from other countries to be married. It is finally fair that same-sex couples may now qualify for federal benefits that were previously only available to heterosexual married couples.
Same-sex marriage is currently legal in 14 U.S. states including California, the District of Columbia, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
As the official San Francisco City Hall photographer, I am honored to have the privilege to witness, capture and celebrate the diversity in marriages, and meeting wonderful couples from all over the states and the world.
It was so much fun capturing Kym and Jody's same-sex wedding at San Francisco City Hall. The beautiful couple flew in from Phoenix, Arizona for their civil ceremony. Their love was celebrated by family and friends as they exchanged their wedding rings. The splendid architecture of San Francisco City Hall provides amazing backdrops with countless photo possibilities.
