Wisconsin in protest – wedding portraits

To say it is an interesting time to take wedding photos in Madison is an understatement – the whole city is ablaze with protest, and Heather & David were keen to make it a part of their wedding day by marching (with their wedding party) along the capitol square with wedding appropriate protest banners.

    Brings tears to my eyes. I'm so happy for them and love they could combine two of their passions (at least two, eh?).

    Wish I were there! On, Wisconsin!

    In the words of Bruce Springsteen "... And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat".

    Union Is America.

    Okay, this is one of the most fun weddings I've seen in a while - despite the background issue being so serious. You're done a great job capturing it!

    And kudos to the bride for managing jacketless photos...brrrr!

    We saw this wedding party on Saturday as we were protesting! We were so heartened to see this couple take time for current events even on their special day! Amazing shots!

    Mazel Tov! The only way this could have been better is if they were a lesbian couple.

    Still, I wish them great joy in their life together.

    These photos are gorgeous!
    This is the material of a photo essay people might refer back to for decades. I have a physical reaction to these images and the falling snow is perfect. Congratulations. Makes me wish I were a photo journalist.
