Rangefinder Magazine – How Photographers Can Improve Working with the LGBTQ+ Community – Kathryn Cooper Weddings | LGBTQ Wedding Photographer

I’m delighted to have several mentions in Rangefinder’s most recent lead article, How Photographers Can Improve Working with LGBTQ+ Community. As an LGBTQ wedding photographer and ally, I’ve been fortunate to be a part of several LGBT wedding photo publications. This one, however, is informative, to-the-point, and extremely helpful for all companies who work with LGBTQ+ couples.

This shared feature was written by Brittny Drye of Love Inc., and published by Rangefinder—one of the leading photography magazines in the world. Love Inc. is an inclusive wedding directory and blog I’ve had the pleasure of being published in and working for before (photographing the NYC Pride March last year, for example). They feature quite a few ideas and posts by LGBTQ wedding photographers around the world, and have tons of inspiration on their website.

[…] This isn’t important to everyone, but is extraordinarily important to others. Many of my LGBT clients want to make sure I have a lo of experience working with all types of couples, people of color want to make sure I’ve photographed couples of color, etc. You’re the client, and you need to feel 100% safe and welcomed.
