As most people by now probably know there has recently been a decision in the California Supreme Court that overturned a ban on same sex marriages in California. I wholeheartedly support this decision, and as a wedding photographer have a tangible way to show my support for these couples wishing to be joined in a legal marriage.
At 5:01 on June 16th this decision will go into effect, and at least here in San Francisco they will be immediately commencing the weddings at City Hall. There is supposed to be an unprecedented number of weddings per day, 250+ by some estimations. They will even be extending their hours and bringing in volunteers to help handle the huge demand.
To offer my support for these couples who have waited so long for this right, and to be a part of this historic milestone, I would love to offer my services free to couples who value photography on June 16th and June 17th for weddings taking place at City Hall. I would be happy to offer up to a 2 hour coverage of the event, an online gallery, and a free 8×10 print. This is a value of $875.
I honestly have no idea if anyone will take me up on this, but I really want to reach out and make the gesture. I will do as many as can be scheduled on the 16th and 17th on a first come, first serve basis.

I welcome any support my readers might be able to provide in getting the word out there that I’m making this available!
