Approaching wedding as a documentary can all in the sudden make the project much more interesting and give it a much more human element to the story. Besides the typical story line like how the couples met and what makes them decided to get married, there are many more elements you can add to make the story very real and uninque to the couple's story.
I met Danielle and Jannay through an online referral service for wedding photography. Janny and Danielle would be the first wedding project that I fully have control of how it's done. As I was talking to one of the couples during our first consultation I got excited about the story of them as immigrants from Brazil and how they ended up here in Los Angeles and what this marriage means to them. The fact that they are a gay couple adds even more angle to the story that goes beyond a typical 'How we fell in love and lived happily ever after.'
