New Slide Show From New Hampshire Same Sex Wedding | Joe Martin Photography

New Slide Show From New Hampshire Same Sex Wedding | Joe Martin Photography

Once the wedding is over and the guests have gone home, I get to work. I cull out the double images and delete the misfires. I sort through the good photos from the great ones. I find the best story- telling images of the day. Lastly, I find the perfect music and create a story of the wedding. For the couple, it is an emotional trip back in time, to the day in which their lives begin with this new chapter of life. Through the video that I create, the couple will be able to see so much that they may have missed from the wedding day. They get to experience what it was like to be a guest witnessing the joining of Love – indivisible.
Thanks again, to Lauren and Meg.. Cheers to you both and may your lives and love be forever entwined. I am honored to have been invited to capture your special day. I will never forget it.

The Day After – Same Sex Marriage In NH |New Hampshire Wedding Photographer

The Day After – Same Sex Marriage In NH |New Hampshire Wedding Photographer

They say timing is everything. This one was right on the money. The day after the Supreme Court made same sex marriage legal in all fifty U.S. states, I had the great fortune to be part of one. I had this wedding booked for sometime. The timing of the courts actions was just divine. It made their day even more special. The wedding was great. We started on time had a fifteen minute ceremony were both of the brides shared the vows they had written for each other. They were short and loving. Talking a bit about their time together so far on their journey. There was many smiles and looks back at the guests as if to let them all know they were important to the couple. The couple had chose to have a firsts look before the wedding. They had spent the early part of the day together with their wedding party. The only time they were apart was to put on their wedding dresses. I walked one bride to the meeting spot and had the other joins us ten minutes later. The second bride walked into the garden and down the steps to her sweetheart. I had her pause so I could capture a few photos of her by herself before they saw each other. Here are a few of my picks and favorite images of the first look for this beautiful same sex wedding.

“It may be that same-sex couples will save the institution of marriage.”  ― Elizabeth Gilbert

 This past week I found true love. I should say i saw true love. I did not discover it. In fact true love found me. It came in the form of an email last year. The email was form a same sex couple looking for a wedding photographer. After a few emails back and forth. They booked me and we started to plan the wedding. Ok, they did the planning and I kept in touch ans added my two cents when I thought I should.  Fast forward to this spring and th wedding engagement photo session.  They knew the spot they wanted to do the photos at. It was the spot of their first weekend away together. There could be no better place. The spot was called “The Lincoln Woods Trail” in Lincoln, NH. It is a great hike very flat and it leads to many other trials that head up into the Mountains of New Hampshire. Like most shoots we meet a bit early we talked about the hike the ideas for the photos and off we went.
At the beginning of the trail is a great wooden bridge we stopped there for a pose or two and headed away in to the forest. The rest as you see came so naturally. The love was obvious.  A fun easy shoot for sure. I can not wait to capture the wedding for this same sex couple.
