Love Who You Love by Angie Jennings
Love Who You Love is a phrase that I live by and that I hear a lot in conversation with friends. I chose this particular image to match the theme of resilience. It depicts friends of mine, Krista and Helen, on their wedding day. Two years after Krista had come through the worst of her battle against cancer, she met Helen through the Kansas City Lesbians Facebook Discussion Group where they shared their love for motorcycles. I was asked to photograph their wedding 2 years after they met. This image is a reminder that all that matters is that you love who you love and to not let society dictate it to you.
