A new campaign from the authors of an instructional book on gay and lesbian wedding photography hopes to go viral and show that a picture can be worth more than 1,000 words — it can be worth 1,138 federal rights.
Photographer Thea Dodds teamed up with Kathryn Hamm of GayWeddings.com to produce Capturing Love: The Art of Lesbian and Gay Wedding Photography, a how-to book and visual guide for photographing gay and lesbian weddings.
And now, the Capturing Love team has created a customizable image highlighting the importance of federally recognized marriage for LGBT couples.
"We all know a picture is worth 1,000 words," reads the image. "This one is also worth 1,138 federal rights."
You can download your own copy of the "A Picture Is Worth" frame, complete with instructions on how to insert your photo, here. Then Capturing Love asks users to post the customized image to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, tagging Capturing Love to demonstrate a shared support for marriage equality.
Watch a video about the importance of Capturing Love below, and find more information about the "Picture" campaign here.
