< Same Sex Marriage 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈>
Today I have received a request which I had not seen since the day I started this wedding shooting business: the couple wanted to pay more extra just in order to request us not to upload their pictures on social media platforms as our usual advertising. I always take care my couples as usual, with whom I organize the event for their wedding photos. Therefore, I really want to know the reason behind this request. Of course, we always respected their privacy but we were appalled surprise upon the first picture they shared on social media have receiving terrible comments. Some even verbally attacked the soon-to-be-married couple. How pitty the intimate and blessful moments photos with such rude comments, just because it was the gay couple marriage.
The couple confided to us, in tears: they shared the first picture with the hope that they would get everyone's blessing. Sadly, what they got was harsh words on their happiest day of their lives. I was very very very upset when I heard their story.
You know what, I live in the bustling Saigon and I am so familiar with the adorable and happy moments of gay couples. Moreover, there is one gay in my own big family in Vietnam so I have my deepest understanding and sympathy for the LGBT community.
For the couple that we shot their wedding photo that day, we did not see them as a gay couple who are in love but one strong person protecting the family and the other was so gentle and sweet, who would do anything to take care of the family.
Regardless, after our conversation, I was really really sad. A sadness that could not even be expressed with words.
I do really hope Vietnamese society and other society will have a more generous perspective for Same Sex Marriage so they can also successfully seek happiness in this life 😞
