How exciting! Thank you for taking an interest in being one of our couples/models. The only requirement that we have is that you identify as LGBTQ+. We don’t need to know any more, that’s your business and we recommend only sharing further information with your styled shoot team if you want to and if it forms part of the message YOU want to put into the world.
This project aims to achieve better and authentic representation of LGBTQ+ lives and relationships in the wedding industry. CIS het models are still being used to represent LGBTQ+ inclusivity and that needs to change, like yesterday. The only way we can help facilitate this change is to build a community of LGBTQ+ people and couples who are happy (or at least willing to be) in front of the camera, who want to be part of this change, and who might benefit from having a day of pampering and a portfolio of amazing professional photographs. This service will give suppliers direct access to authentic people/couples to help them avoid tokenisation and falling foul of stereotypes but YOU will always be in control. Briefs will be sent to You and You will only reach out to suppliers if You want to.
Before we roll out this service to suppliers, we’d like to have a good number of willing couples/models ready to go, equipped with some basic information on how to stay safe and what to expect, and for suppliers to be equipped with insight on how to properly represent those they work with, what questions to ask and not to ask, and how not to capitalise on the fact that we’re LGBTQ+ so that their representation of us is accurate and positive. This will take a little time but we’re working on it. In the meantime, why don’t you sign up and watch out for further information. We can’t wait to work with you.
