Lee & Jorge | Love Wins - an anniversary look back

Today marks one year of marriage equality in Oregon. Not so coincidentally, it also happens to be Lee & Jorge's 1 year anniversary. On May 19th, 2014 I was in Salem, Oregon when the ruling was announced. Wanting to share in a small part of the excitement of the day, I grabbed my camera and hoofed it a few blocks over to the Marion County Clerk's office and was just in time to see Lee & Jorge applying for a marriage license. After being together for 8 years and finally winning the right to marry, they were the first same-sex couple to apply for a marriage license in Marion County. Lee, Jorge and the clerk's office were all very gracious in allowing me to snap some photos. It was an honor to be able to share in that moment and also be able to share photos with the happy couple. The Marion County Clerk Bill Burgess waved the normal 3-day waiting period and was able to marry them that afternoon.

Lee & Jorge's story was featured in several local and national newspapers. You can read more about their story here and here in the Salem Statesman Journal and also in the USA Today. Happy anniversary to Lee & Jorge and all of the same-sex couples who are celebrating a one year wedding anniversary today!! Are you planning a wedding? I'm still offering great specials for LGBT couples who are getting married in 2015. Please contact me today for a consult.
