From the moment I thought about starting my photography business, I knew it would be an inclusive business. One that was a resource and support system for everyone, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation, size, culture, ethnicity, religion or race. This is something that is deeply ingrained in me as a person, and unapologetically so within my business.
One of the most gut-wrenching questions I receive entirely too regularly: "Do you photograph LGBTQ+ weddings?" I am so terribly sorry that you even need to ask. I cannot start to imagine being a business that is not inclusive and welcoming to all of its potential customers. You will not have to ask that uncomfortable question and hold your breath to see if your wedding has worth to them. All you will have to worry about is loving each other and celebrating this next step in your lives together.
I want you to know that you are welcome here not just because I am legally obligated, but because you are supported and catered to every step of the way. There will never be anything assumed about the gender you identify with, pronouns that you prefer, traditions you will be upholding and those you will be parting from, and how you define your family.
I cannot fathom what you have had to go through to get to this day and the joy you feel having reached this point. Nothing should be taking away the excitement out of that, including finding your vendors. Please know that you can leave those fears at the door here at Terme Studios. You are welcomed with open arms and cared for here!
