Lyn & Thyne

Sure it's a lesbian wedding. Let's get that out of the way. And maybe, it's what makes this entry obviously 'rebellious'. But what makes this even more non-traditional for us is the fact that the photos show of ACCEPTANCE from the people around the couple--particularly the officiator and the oldies. That they have gotten passed this and that they have learned to embrace it, witness it, and be part of the celebration. Now that's what makes this rebellious.

You know what? To be honest, this doesn't even seem quite as scandalous to someone like me who studied in an all-girl Catholic school that is secretly popular for having a lot of girl-on-girl action haha (any guesses?). My friends and I were surrounded with this type of relationships on a daily basis back in High School--they were our classmates, they were our own "ka-barkadas", heck--some were even our TEACHERS. Early on we've learned this to be 'normal' and that it was just a matter of preference. It was actually only when I've moved on to College that I've realized there was some sort of real controversy with this kind of love. Some girls moved on, realizing that it was a phase and eventually they've re-discovered their femininity. But then there were also some who realize it's who they are for good. 

It's because of exposure early in life that allows us to have an open mind and an open heart. So this is the reason why we opt to feature this rebelliousness in the blog. So that more people can be exposed and learn to be more understanding. Because at the end of the day, it all boils down to love. And LOVE CONQUERS ALL. 

" I went through the photos while I prepared them for this post, I remember how I felt shooting it – I felt how special it was, I felt how happy I was for them, and I felt the celebration of love all throughout the day – all of these are no different from any other wedding I witness. I didn’t think the entire time that this is a lesbian wedding, that there's actually two women who are vowing to love each other forever. That made me realize all the more that strip this of the issue of gender, including all the prejudice that comes with it, this wedding is as normally wonderful as any other wedding. So I’m not anymore going to go through much trying to justify it – because any union, clear it of the discrimination of gender, much like age and race is a love as pure as any love there is out there. " -- Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto
