Celina and Jen wanted to feature their small family in their engagement photographs. So these photos can also double as family photos. They are a wonderful lesbian couple and they had shared some of their story when we first met at a Starbucks in Orem. The couple had gone through breast cancer and they had had numerous trials and hardships but their relationship has weathered the storms and come out stronger.
Although Gay Marriage is currently on hold in Utah pending a court case with the Supreme Court that doesn’t stop couples like Jen and Celina to celebrate their love with a commitment ceremony although I believe they are calling it a wedding and marriage.
They live in Utah County but wanted an urban and graffiti kind of location for their engagement photos. There is no better location than Exchange Place. We photographed them on a Saturday morning and the photos turned out awesome. They picked bright and bold colors for their engagement photos. We had a lot of fun creating the photos.
I’m excited to photograph their wedding! Should be a lot of fun.
