    If your head hasn't been under a rock these past few days, you'll have noticed there have been significant steps forward for the global gay community in achieving equality.

    First the US Supreme Court legalised same-sex marriage in every state, bypassing local state law. Then the Gay Pride parades staged this weekend were mostly great successes.

    The owner is clearly a supporter of gay rights and changed his profile picture on the company page with the rainbow colours on the book face.

    He then received some negative feedback from one client who said they didn't want to use him for their wedding because he and his company supported same-sex marriage.

    Rather than expose the couple or apologising for causing offence, he responded by donating the retainer the couple had paid to a charity supporting gay rights.

    Some people are so small minded, good for him for standing firm.

    I read this. He should have responded alot better than he di and the post i saw he did expose the couple. They had a short msg to say they didnt agree and couldnt work eith him etc but his reponse was not professional at all he should of just said it was their choice he desnt agree but ok and the deposit is nonrefundable.

    Im all for gay marriage! Bt some people are stuck in their ways and if you dont view things in the same way theres no need to be rude about it. The couple werent really rude but the photographer was.

    Sorry if this offends any1 but i saw both sides in the wrong on this 1 :-/

    I saw this and was so pleased that the photographer stood for what he believed in! Glad someone stands up for equality nowadays :) We have way too many people upsetting us and we've had our fair share of upset so I'm afraid I will always be glad to see someone supporting us!

    I don't think he outed them - at least, there were no names on the post I saw. But even if there were, if they're going to be a couple of bigoted morons and were prepared lose $1,500 because of the fact they are small-minded @r5eholes, then go ahead and name and shame them. More fool them for being so stupid and ignorant.

    Haha love it. Can't believe people are so narrow minded! Everyone has their own life n live it how they wish too and its nice to see he choose free voice over making some money!
