Hi, my name is David de Biasi, wedding photographer in Spain. In this category, I would like to show you some of my work with same sex couples.
I have always had a strong connection with the gay world, particularly since two of my best childhood friends were gay. As a result, it’s an environment in which I have always felt comfortable and experienced naturally.
Owing to this, I must admit that doing my first same sex wedding was really special; I felt relaxed and at ease and the couple made me feel great.
When it comes to taking photos of heterosexual couples, generally you will find (especially in the more posed photos), that there are stereotypes that become apparent. For example, it’s common that the bride is given a particular role and the groom another.
With gay weddings, we break away from this stereotype and simply allow the couple to behave naturally, in the way that they themselves are. If I’m honest, I genuinely believe that this is what we should be doing with heterosexual couples too, and this is something I put into practice more and more, as it sees that everything is as natural and authentic as possible in all of my shoots.
The weddings that I’ve have the honour of photographing have always been very intimate and moving. Sometimes, I have noticed there is a level of emotion between the couple and family and friends, somewhat more intense than at heterosexual weddings. It is sometimes the case that the journey leading up to the marriage between gay couples has not been straightforward or easy. This makes it all the more beautiful to see how everything comes together in the end, with tears of joy and happiness.
I hope you enjoy and are as moved as I am by the following reports of the couples I’ve had the fortune of photographing.
