Same-sex couples and members of the LGBT community are welcome at Rebecca Little Photography. We believe that love is love is love, and that if we’re lucky enough to find love in this life, it should be celebrated.
Paolo Presta and Patrick Thomassie
I met Patrick and Paolo at All Saints Church in Pasadena for their engagement photos. These men are two bright lights of positive energy and joy. You can’t help but be happy just being around them. Paolo is the host of A Spoonful of Paolo, a talk show that has the most amazing guests. Seriously. Patrick is the producer of the show and you can find it here.
Locations for same-sex couples
My goal is to show the love that two people have for each other. I knew All Saints had lots of great locations with lots of variety. I knew the layout pretty well because I had scouted it the day before. For this shot, we took the pathway that winds through the back of the church and leads to the side lawn. You wouldn’t know it was there unless you were looking for it! This old wooden door is around a corner and there are tall stone walls on all sides. It’s the perfect spot for this photo. I love how happy and connected they look.
Wardrobe for same-sex photos
Because we were shooting outside, we didn’t want to fuss with changing outfits, so whatever they wore had to be suitable for every location. These colors are perfect. I always suggest jewel tones to my clients because they photograph very well. They look equally good in color and black and white images.
For casual, romantic photos like these, I suggest dark jeans or black pants. The dark color helps anchor you and provide a foundation. Light colors can detract. I want all the focus to be on your face and expression.
