As a San Antonio engagement photographer, I always love the opportunity to work with diverse couples. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a gay military couple for their last-minute engagement session at the Pearl in San Antonio, Texas. The couple was both excited and nervous, as this was their first “professional” photo shoot together.
We started off exploring the beautiful sights around their home at the Cellars, where they took strolls hand in hand and shared stories about their journey together. It was so heartwarming to see the love and admiration in their eyes as they posed for pictures.
Throughout the photo shoot, I made sure that they felt comfortable and at ease, guiding them with gentle pose suggestions to capture their connection perfectly. Paul’s engaging smile as he interacted with Will and Will’s obvious adoration for Paul was a treat to photograph.
One of the most memorable parts of this engagement session was when the couple shared their plans to get married on the 4th of July. It was truly a wonderful experience to capture their excitement and anticipation for this special day, and I could not be happier to be a part of it all.
As an LGBTQIA+ inclusive photographer, it is always my goal to provide a safe and welcoming space for all couples, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. I believe that love is love, and it is always worth celebrating and capturing on camera.
Overall, this engagement session was filled with joy, laughter, and all the beautiful emotions that come with love. It was an experience that will go down as one of my favorites as a photographer, and I cannot wait to continue capturing more love stories in San Antonio and beyond.
