Same Sex Spring Garden Wedding | Cottonwood Cottage, Genoa | Reno - Lake Tahoe Same Sex Wedding Photographer

Happy Pride Month!

This is perfect timing for Roza and Jessica’s blog of their wedding last month at the Cottonwood Cottage in Genoa, NV. What a gorgeous May day we had! It was the perfect Spring weather for a wedding. I had never been to the Cottonwood Cottage, but man it’s the cutest little venue. It was green and vibrant with Spring. Jessica and Roza’s touch of flowers throughout their center pieces and lining their aisle was perfect for the setting.

They had a Buddhist ceremony and with that had the traditional tea ceremony with their families joining them at the alter. Their ceremony was done by Rev. Matthew Fisher and Rev. Shelly Fisher from the Reno Buddhist Center.

Thank you Jessica and Roza for trusting me to capture your day! It was an amazing wonderful day, and I cannot wait to see your new chapter of life unfold! Wishing you many many years of happiness and love!

Side Note: When Jessica and Roza were looking for a wedding photographer, they had a such a difficult time finding someone who had it on their website that they are same sex couple friendly. Meggin Linquist Photography is a LGBTQ+ friendly photographer. Your day is just as special as everyone’s day, and it should be captured in all the beauty that it is!

Same Sex Fall Engagement Session | Rancho San Rafael Park | Reno - Lake Tahoe Photographer

Fall means it’s engagement session time for my 2019 couples!!

When I met with Roza and Jessica in April, they knew they wanted fall colors for their engagement session. We don’t get much of that around here in the desert, but there is one park that is always on fire with fall colors this time of year. I hadn’t shot there in the fall as I try to avoid it due to it being a hot spot for fall sessions with photographers. I think I am going to have to break my rule on that though. The fall colors are to die for!

How stinkin’ adorable are they?! There is so much love between these two and they are such gentle souls. I cannot wait for their May wedding at the Buddhist temple! It’s going to be amazing!

Thank you Roza and Jessica for trusting me in capturing your adventure! I am so excited for you two and I cannot wait for your special day!

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.
