Love Equality and the Philadelphia Region HRC Gala ⋆ Lindsay Docherty Photography

Love Equality and the Philadelphia Region HRC Gala

Personal Press

Do you know what makes my job the best thing ever? Love.

I get to be around people at some of the happiest times of their lives – babies, engagements, weddings. These are moments filled to the brim with family and love. I believe in love because I see it, photograph it, talk to it, and edit it every single day.

Love is something that I have believed in since I was very young and in Catholic school. I believed in it when I moved to the South for college. I believed in it in graduate school when I volunteered at a resource hotline for the LGBT community in the Raleigh-Durham area. I believed in it when I lived in San Francisco in 2008 and felt a heavy heart when Prop 8 was passed.

I believe in love now and am a very proud supporter of LGBT rights. I am thrilled that the yellow and blue equality flag is becoming commonplace in Philly and that Facebook lit up with pink and red versions of it just about this time last year when the Supreme Court held hearings on gay marriage.

That symbol belongs to the Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBT civil rights advocacy organization in the country.

If you haven’t heard, the HRC is holding its Greater Philadelphia Gala this Saturday at the Loews Philadelphia and I am PROUD to be a sponsor of the event. The Lindsay Docherty Photography Oh, snap! Photo Studio will be there to snap pictures of guests throughout the evening and I have offered the HRC an 8 hour wedding package plus engagement session and digital images for their auction. This is valued at over $4600.

I encourage you to get yourself a ticket to the gala, celebrate equality, learn what’s ahead, dine, check out fantastic auction items, get some pictures in the photo studio, and surround yourself with other people who believe in love. It’s not to be missed.

In related news, I just found out that sweet Jennifer and Mel’s engagement session was featured on the blog Equally Wed last week! Equally Wed is “the world’s leading digital wedding and honeymoon resource for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied couples.” I am quite proud to have my work featured on this fantastic site!

With LOVE,
Lindsay

“I’m a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being… by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant. “
~Paul Newman

December Cancun vacation
Ack! It's about freaking time I posted something about my own holidays! Better late than never, right?Holiday Season 2007 felt like constant travel. I can't complain because I saw some great things and reconnected with some great people, but it is sooo tiring to live out of a suitcase for weeks on end.I never did get back to writing about our trip to Cancun in early December. Suffice it to say that it was excellent. I was originally a Spanish major back in college and I was really proud of myself for all of the Spanish I still remembered. Rich and I are total power vacationers – we had plans for every day that we were there so as not to ...
