I met Mike and Greg and started to work on our open ended Love Project back in October of 2012 when same sex marriage in all 50 states was still far from supreme court ruling. I named our project Season Change. The goal was to capture their love in different season, in hope that by the time we finish with our project, they will be legally allowed to marry and perhaps use all the photos as part of the celebration at the wedding.
Well, the day has come soon enough and I could not be any more happier for Mike and Greg, as well as, all of my gay friends. I am honored to have captured the wonderfulness of their relationship and look forward to document more happiness and love on their wedding day.
I could only imagine the joy in their heart and of those who love them.
Here is the thoughts on the ruling from Mike:
Greg and I have been together for 15 years. In that time we've watched many of our friends meet, fall in love and marry. We've been waiting our turn. Justice Anthony Kennedy described our feelings exactly during his and the Supreme Court's ruling yesterday, "No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were." We look forward to sharing the rest of our days together as husbands. Recognized as such by not only our friends and family, but by our community, our state and our great nation.
