    They usually say "You may kiss your life-partner" or "You may now kiss your husband" (for both).

    AFAIK.. no.. not legal..so I have no idea why TS said such marriages 'on the rise'.. probably not local market.

    or if the guy is somone who cheated your money but u fail to charge him in court....will u still shoot him? haha
    yes I'll shoot for sure I'll shoot it free some more

    No, the local market is booming. But it's not a "wedding" obviously, since it's illegal. Rather, it's an informal wedding... A "Life commitment ceremony"

    Haven done a 'wedding' for they yet.
    What i have done can at most be considered as pre wed i guess.

    But gays are very nice people to work with.
    Very easy to talk them, get them to pose and open up.
    Not sure about les though.

    Mainly client's privacy and also partly due to sensitivity to other clients. Some clients may be offended by it. I personally have no issue with this and would shoot and showcase as long as clients are open to it.

    I do not understand your purpose of starting this thread. 3 out of the 4 options that you gave in the poll are to an extend, homophobic and reflects on our society's ultra conservative stance. I am greatly disturbed by the options that you had provided, they are gay-bashing. If people don't say it on the subsequent comments, I think they had already done so in the poll.

    If it's really about a wedding, does it matter if it's same sex or not?

    To agree, means to accept them, means that you approve of it.

    So... no. I do not despise them, but I do not approve of such things either.

    It's as good as telling your kids, it's ok to be as such, "daddy/mummy" will approve of it because I've shot such weddings.

    I hope this is not homophobic.

    Will answer it when I come to face with it.

    So far not legal in sg yet... chances are very slim that I face such a situation in the near future.

    I dunno if it's endurance... I'd have said "s3xual preference". I'm 100% comfortable that I'm straight, and the thing is, most of the homosexuals will recognize and respect that.

    Besides, you're supposed to be hired as a professional. So act professional and just do it to the best of your ability.

    I have shot a wedding of a gay couple before, no biggie. In fact, recommended by a couple whose wedding I shot.

    My intention? What if I tell you that there are many opportunities there, especially overseas and they are looking for photographers?

    Many of my clients are from the arts circle and I've photographed many gay writers and musicians for commercial as well as domestic consumption.
    You've said it, this society's ultra conservative, and for me I've absolutely no qualms about cover a same sex marriage. However, I do take the stance that the portfolio will be shown to selective couples only. I do photography for a living and whatever I do cannot affect my business.

    I do maintain that this thread or the options are in no way gay bashing. A person who chooses the 3 options need not be homophobic or gay-bashing but have considered many other factors. Even if you're to judge it based on the options, many of the photographers are selecting the 4th option.
