Photo by Carlton Mackey, creator of Typical American Families

"Our photo shoot with Carlton transcended mere memory cards and film. He managed to capture us at a special moment, reflecting our personalities as well as the playfulness of one of our favorite parks. Even though we couldn't have a legal wedding at the time, we wanted some photos of us as a couple to commemorate that year and our ceremony. We still talk about how comfortable we were just being ourselves and how much fun we had that day! It means a lot, then and now, to have these photos to share with family and friends as we celebrate love and commitment in their many forms."
