On Tuesday, Jan. 28, the authors appeared together in Baltimore at an editorial meeting for Two Bright Lights, an online publicity platform, to discuss and promote their book.
Some conventional poses that may not necessarily work for same-sex couples include the groom dipping the bride and the bride sitting in the groom’s lap. First and foremost, the authors advise photographers against assuming anything with same-sex couples.
“Family may be attending, or they may not be invited. The couple may also not be entirely comfortable with public displays of affection,” says Hamm. “Don’t presume what the couple may want to have -- start by asking. We suggest photographers do some prep work and spend some time with the couple.”
“Capturing Love,” which features 38 photographers and 46 couples, is currently available in limited release at Lulu.com for $32.95, but is scheduled for a full release in March. Hamm and Dodds encourage same-sex couples and wedding photographers to submit their photos online at their web site.
