On June 26th, 2015 The Supreme Court declared same sex marriage legal in all 50 states. The morning of June 26th I walked into my favorite coffee shop Frama to get my daily vanilla latte. Every morning I am greeted by Doug who always has a smile on his face, makes me a delicious latte, and gives me a hug before I walk out the door. He was waiting in anticipation for the news, the news that would finally make it possible for him to marry his long time love of 13 years Phill. I got my morning hug from Doug and walked over to my studio. I turned on my computer and immediately started searching the internet hoping to hear good news. As soon as I saw the ruling I ran back to Frama like a crazy person and found Doug on the phone with Phill in tears. There was cheering, and laughing, and lots of happy crying. Doug and Phill were getting married! This wedding was so special to us. Not only were we guests, but we got to snap some photos as well and document our dear friends make a commitment to each other in front of their closest friends and family. There was nothing but love out there in the middle of the desert that evening. This will be a day that we will never forget, and we were beyond honored to be able to capture it.
Doug and Phill, we love you dearly. We wish you many many more happy years as husband and husband.
