Government Shutdown Wedding – Part 2

Washington DC Wedding Photographer : Stephen Gosling Photography

Earlier today I posted about the Washington Post article that went online yesterday afternoon.  After that article went up the literal ‘flood-gates’ were opened and I was fielding calls and emails from CNN, NBC 4 News in DC, NBC 7 News in Boston, CBS News, FOX 5 News, BBC News, The Daily Mail Online, The Los Angeles Daily news…  all wanting permission from me to possibly use my photos for pieces they wanted to write about the Government Shutdown affecting MaiLien & Micheal’s wedding this coming Saturday.  I granted permission but deflected all media requests to the couple for final say-so as this is very important for them to deal with.

As Micheal says in some of the interviews he conducted; ‘the most important thing is that they will be married’.  And that is a great attitude to have.  And no matter where the wedding is, we’re going to get some kick-ass photos!

And because it was pretty surreal to see some of my images on TV, I had to note down some of the links for posterity.
