After receiving an ad from a wedding photographer featuring an image of a same-sex couple, the editor replied:
“Is there possibly another photograph you’d like to use in your ad? We just don’t feel comfortable publishing an ad featuring a same-sex couple. These aren’t our personal beliefs, of course, but, you know…”
I came across this today and felt it was necessary to share. As a wedding photographer myself this makes me sick to my stomach. My hope is that word will spread and Weddings Unveiled Magazine wil have to speak up about this.

Pretty disappointing move on their part. Not sure what’s worse – them being fearful that one progressive ad will cost them business, or being morally opposed to a same sex marriage. Either way it’s unfortunate that people still act/think this way. It is however an inevitable fact that eventually all people will be able to marry whomever they choose regardless of their sexual orientation. This isn’t a change that conservatives will be able to fight forever. We did away with slavery and segragation – so to will we do away with this.

How depressing. Lets further segregation! That’s the best way to show tolerance and acceptance?
How very depressing.
