I could start out by throwing out the fact that love is love. I could throw out my alliance to LGBTQ community and that I support their love. I could do a lot of altruistic notions. But, actions always speak louder than words for me.
Not all of the weddings I shoot teach me things. I'm not talking about the learning kind of taught; but the SOUL kind of taught. The kinds of things that teach you to be more open. More centered. More human. In the time I've known these two absolutely amazing women, I've wanted nothing but good for them. Learning about them on the way and their struggles during covid and not once was there a hint of struggles with them. These two are grounded. Grounded into each other. I've shot weddings with less faith in their stability and longevity, as terrible as that sounds but it's true. With the Reynas, I have no doubt - ABSOLUTELY no doubt - that these two have built something that will last.
Going back to being taught. I've always believed that love is an incredible spectrum that is as undefined as we as individuals are. That love transcends and that it lifts us. Anyone who restricts love hasn't known love authentically, hasn't been changed by love because once you've found your person and you feel that authentic love, it's something you want everyone to have. If you're on board with restricting love, then you need to get the fuck outta here and go find yourself as a human being. When I meet my LGBTQ clients, they always end up teaching me something. They teach me love. Love for myself. Love for them. Love for the belief of love.
