Wedding Couple Silhouette

This gay couple's silhouette was recorded in the 6th floor's elevator lobby moments before their hotel wedding ceremony.

Award-Winning Wedding Photo

This photograph was entered in the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) 16x20 Print, Album, and Filmmaking Annual Competition. It received a Silver Award with a score of 80 in the Bride & Groom Together, Wedding Day category. This category name was in place for many years before it was changed to Wedding Couple Together, Wedding Day to support wedding diversity.

I submitted this photograph with the title, "Mary J. Blige Celebrates Same Sex Marriage." From secondhand accounts, some judges observed that the image title featured "too much information."

In answer to those judges, I have to admit that I didn't know the name of the vocal artist. The guys were her fans and thus an important important story element.

I looked at the title as being both informative and true because according to online news sites, she supported same sex marriage / marriage equality.

Today, there's thankfully more understanding and approval for marriage equality. And that's great, because I'm a huge Houston gay wedding supporter.
