One of the biggest challenges for a wedding photographer is finding a way to stay creative shooting what essentially amounts to the same event 30-40 times per year. It's because of this that few things give me greater joy in this profession than finding a couple that doesn't fit into the same mold as everyone else.
In the case of Laura and Marijke, a pair of brides who were married back in June at Independence Harbor in Assonet, Massachusetts, being anything but conventional is not only a character trait but a point of pride.
Laura and Marijke were unlike any brides I've worked with before in a number of ways. First, they were the first same sex wedding I've photographed for my own company. Second, they were both tattooed brides, with Marijke even sporting a Captain America tattoo on her right shoulder blade that I adored. Lastly, the way they approached their wedding day was so different than my standard couples that I just couldn't wait to see how they pulled it all off.
And pulled it off they did. This was a wedding built for, and by, two brides who were determined to do what they wanted and it couldn't have gone any better if they tried.
So, if you'd like to see why Laura and Marijke showed sometimes two brides are better than one, check out their wedding day for yourself by clicking here.
