When we see a couple like John and Scott get married, we are reminded of the importance of the New York legislation enacted last year allowing same-sex unions.Â Theirs is a heart-warming story, similar to the stories of so many gay and lesbian couples in the state.Â John and Scott have been together 27 years, an amazing feat for any couple, no matter what their sexual orientation.Â They have been waiting for many (too many!) years to be legally married to each other.
Here at 5th Avenue Digital, we feel itâ€™s a great privilege to document the weddings of couples who have loved, struggled, cried and laughed together for many years and are so happy and ready to be married. Â For the same-sex couples we photograph, this sentiment is even stronger. Â The companionship and love they share emanates from their photos.Â It warms the heart!Â Take a look and see if your heart is lifted, too.
