Love Is Love

Same Sex Couple Session | Reno - Lake Tahoe Photographer

Lets talk about love.

What is love? Per Merriam-Webster there are several definitions of love. Here are a couple...

  1. a (1) :strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties, (2) :attraction based on sexual desire:affection and tenderness felt by lovers, (3) :affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests.

  2. a :the object of attachment, devotion, or admiration. b (1) :a beloved person

Love is just that. All the above. Nowhere does it say there's a boundary in love, specify who can love who, etc. Love has no boundaries. Love has no limitations. Love is simply that - love.

I had the pleasure of hanging out with Andrew and Shannon from Fox & Owl Studio at Photo Rehab: North Carolina 2017. They led a shoot called "Love Is Love - Deal With It". We had a chance to sit down and speak with our couple, Connie and Aubrie. We heard their story of the anxiety of looking for and reaching out to wedding vendors. It brought tears to my eyes because nobody should have to have that kind of anxiety when planning their wedding, and nobody should have to worry about sending vendors an email inquiring about their service and hope that you aren't turned away due to being a gay couple.

Meggin Linquist Photography is same-sex friendly. I will welcome you and your partner with open arms, lots of laughs, and amazing images of your special moments.

Now lets talk about this gorgeous couple!

These two have so much love for each other. The way Connie looks at Aubrie is something truly special and one-of-a-kind love. You could feel the energy between them as they were asked to interact with each other.  We ended the session with a jam session to Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do. They were a blast to photograph and I am so happy they came out and shared their journey with us.

Garden Themed Same-Sex Wedding | Galena Fish Hatchery | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Holy moly!

Alicia and Beth's garden themed June wedding at the Galena Fish Hatchery was sooo amazing! We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous day for them to day their "I do's" to each other in front of their closest friends and family. The love that these two ladies has for each other, their friends, and family showed throughout the entire day, and I am so excited I was able to capture it all!

When I met with Alicia and Beth for their pre-consult, I knew we were an excellent match. We joked and laughed. I found their love for baseball, garden gnomes, and how much they adore their cat. They're cat people - anyone who knows me knows my love for cats. I'd have more than two if my husband would allow me! It wasn't until the wedding day that I realized what an amazing craftsman Beth is! The arch they were married under was crafted by her. Along with the bar! Both were AMAZING.

Alicia and Beth's goal for their wedding day was to have a huge celebration with their friends and family. They have so much love for the people around them, and it could be seen so much throughout the day. I'll admit, I did tear up quite a few times throughout the day. The ceremony was amazing. The words spoken by their officiant, Sean Savoy, were full of love and strength.

Thank you Alicia and Beth for allowing me to capture your amazing day! It was amazing, gorgeous, and full of love. You gals have amazing hearts and the love you have for your friends and family shows to it's fullest extent. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, love, laughs, and garden gnomes!
