So, I was thinking on my to work this morning (Which admittedly is a first).

A while ago I got a "check list" of the most important photos to take at a wedding, like the exchange of rings, or vows, the father kissing the bride and so on. I was wondering how that list would change for a gay or lesbian wedding? Would it change much? Has anyone ever been asked to shoot a gay/lesbian wedding?

Thanks,
Jan.

Good question, I still haven't had the pleasure(!) of photographing a gay wedding yet, however it is one of those things that I took have wondered about.

I guess its a case of meeting up with the couple in advance and discussing.

However I have seen a couple of gay weddings taking place in the town near where I work and they were anything but conventional.. The best looking one was that the whole congregation was dressed up in WW2 period costumes. It looked fantastic! Initially I thought it was a movie being filmed but then realised that it was actually a wedding.. I bet the reception would of been themed such as well.. would of made for fantastic photo ops..

Im pretty sure it will be the same as any other wedding - mostly traditional but with some surprises the couple happened to like. Talk to the couple the will soon fill you in.

Just replace the word groom with bride for a lesbian wedding and vica versa for a gay one....

shouldn't make any differents. i suppose, if two women are marrying, then you'd have two father kisses the bride shots...

basically, you'd have to find out how formal the couple are going to be, quite often same sex wedding celbrations tend to be slightly less formal than not.
