Women at the Helm 2014

Meet the next wave of out leaders!

HEATHER MORGAN
Founder and Owner, 2Bride Photography

In 2012, Heather Morgan founded 2Bride Photography, the first wedding photography business to specialize in the queer community. Today, Morgan strives to not only be a trusted photographer for lesbians and gay men but also a trusted advisor, offering clients information on gay-friendly wedding vendors and queer wedding traditions. An out woman herself and a photographer since 2002, she gets a special thrill out of serving our community. “Just last spring I had the pleasure of photographing a transgender couple’s wedding. They liked me so much they asked me to come back for a boudoir session! I think a lot of transgender couples are a little hesitant to approach photographers, but with me they know they will be accepted because this is what I do.” Many other couples feel the same, obviously, as evidenced by the pictures at the 2Bride Photography blog (2bridephotography.com/blog/). This is not to say, though, that Morgan’s job is always just about photographing beautiful couples in love. “There are going to be times when you’re tired, stressed out and broke,” she says, “but those are the times to push even harder because it is so worth it when your dreams materialize.”
