Exxxxaaaactly Eddie Ray. I mean really, I would think the bride/bride....uh....groom/groom, would not want you there as bad as you would not want to be there. Common sense again, if I don't want to be there I'm not going to be at my creative best.....ummmm, if you are suing me to be there, whoops, I forgot to put a card in the camera. I think it's significant to note that the 7K fine was just that, a fine to cover court costs, there was no financial damage judgement involved. So one wonders, is the photographer then enjoined (curious word in this instance) by the court to book the wedding? Once again, then do you open yourself up for another lawsuit if the imagery isn't all the happy couple had envisioned?
My point was, it's a great time in the history of the world to be a commercial photographer, just sayin'!
Think whatever you like of me personally, but I'll flat out tell you that I won't shoot a gay wedding, ........but I won't shoot any other kind of wedding either! I have friends throughout the creative industry that aren't interested in the opposite sex, they like and respect me, I like and respect them, a by product of that respect is, they leave me off the guest and photographer list at their events. Works for me.
I just received my second and last copy of a new subscription to the PPof A's magazine. Flipped it open to pages and pages of same sex wedding imagery, and an article detailing how to exploit that new market. I do not judge, but I do not need my nose rubbed in it either, seems that I should have that right,....right?
