Happy Pride Month! I have such a heart for gay couples, and I’m so thankful I live in a state that allows same-sex marriage. Growing up with family members who were gay, I learned early on the importance of unconditional love, especially in an area littered with close-minded people. I have always celebrated same sex relationships, and will always celebrate same sex relationships… regardless of the possibility for discrimination for Benfield Photography. I want clients who value love, not hate. I want clients who are accepting of everyone’s differences, and who realize that it is our differences that make us special. And I want clients who love regardless of orientation, race, religion, or age! Love is love.
In NW Arkansas, there has been a significant lack of same sex wedding promotion, and I want to change that as well! We have some really incredible same sex couples (I know quite a few personally and they are all AWESOME!), who deserve to have their love celebrated and shown off. I’m getting the ball rolling with this wedding shoot I did of Maggie and Anna, with some help from some incredible NWA wedding vendors who share my beliefs that gay couples deserve the same rights as straight couples. I applaud them all because we all came together to donate our time to this project! A list of these wedding vendors are below – be sure to give them a follow and some major love… and your business!!
Thank you for following me, support me, and sharing my love for all love!
