Masculine LGBT styled shoot – Marc & Curtis
Isn’t it AWFUL that there are still people who discriminate against the LGBT community?! I just don’t get it! Love is love, and we love it in all shapes and sizes which is why I really wanted to arrange an LGBT shoot because unfortunately there is still such a big issue in the industry and I feel like I want to do anything I can do to try and help. Typically if someone is going to arrange an LGBT shoot they’d have two brides and two grooms is less common. Really the groom’s were the inspiration for the whole shoot! I wanted a real couple as the models so they were natural when interacting with each other, and I was so lucky to find Marc and Curtis through a friend on Facebook. They’re so in love and throughout the whole shoot they were talking about when they get married, and they aren’t even engaged yet! These two couldn’t keep their hands off each other and you can tell that they’re the best of friends too.
This styled shoot was masculine with copper elements, lots of slate and grey colours, and rather than having lots of flowers we opted for succulents instead. A team of incredible wedding vendors all came together to celebrate their love, and the weather was on our side so at the last moment we decided to hold the whole shoot outdoors in the beautiful Cheshire countryside.
Keep your eyes peeled soon for a video of this beautiful day!
