Election Day Wedding! November 4 2008 may have marked the day we elected the first African-American President, (Yay Obama!) but another important event went down that day. After hitting the polls in the morning, two beautiful women Liz and Pat headed to the San Francisco City Hall to tie the knot. When they asked me to photograph their wedding, I was so honored to be part of their ceremony since November 4 *may* be the last day they could wed legally in the state of California. While we are still awaiting for the final results on Proposition 8 which could potentially ban and forfeit gay marriages, family and friends who witnessed their wedding are certain that their love and commitment will endure. Pat & Liz, congratulations for standing up for you believe in and exercising your civil rights!
Here is a sneak peak for now. The highlights slideshow can be viewed here.
Being greeted by No to Prop 8 activists outside City Hall.
Channel 2 News and National Public Radio interviewed the happy couple after the ceremony.
Everyone’s jubilant that Pat and Liz tied the knot after 10 years of being a couple.
Great job, Auey!
Love knows no boundaries….
My dear Auey,
Once again, you have made me cry. I can’t even begin to tell you the rush of emotions I had while I was watching the slideshow. You not only captured the moment; You gave life to the shots with your choice of music, transition of photos and editing. Only people who are gifted and have a real eye for beauty are capable of this and you are hands down one of the most talented and creative persons I know and I feel truly blessed that you are my friend.
(The choice of music was perfect!) Thank you for a wonderful job. You know how much strongly John and I feel about Prop 8 and if only everyone in California could live for a moment under your eye and see every aperture of love whenever you click the camera… Maybe we would be living in a better world.
Love you Auey!
Thanks for the awesome job you do!
BEAUTIFUL!!! LOVE the ones infront of the No on 8 signs. Brought a tear to my eye! regaurdless of what happens now, they will always have each others love!
