Phil and pauls weddingg
As of June 26, 2016, gay marriage had been legal in the state of Texas. Shortly after gay marriage was legalized, I received a email from a couple friends who worked for the local skateshop, Goodtimes. The email was from Phil Travers and Paul Ynostrosa. These two had been in a relationship since I had first started going to Goodtimes around the age of 8 or 9. Phil and Paul wasted no time in planning the day that they would have their wedding. Why should they? They treated their relationship as one that had been wed since I met them. Anyways, the email was in regards to being the photographer of their wedding. I was shocked because I didn't even know gay marriage was even legal in Texas yet. Being that is was so soon after the legalization, I was sure that gay marriage was still a sore subject in Texas; being that Texas is not as progressive as other states. That being said, I was honored to the person they chose to shoot their wedding! Good luck to both Paul and Phil in the future, and congrats!
