Austin-based photographer Erica Nix has over 10 years of wedding photography experience, and for the last two years has been working as a shooter for our sponsor Whitney Lee Photography. This year she's branching out on her own and in a very special way… with her new photography venture called Austin Queer Weddings. We're super excited about her new, specialized photography business, the inspiration behind it, and the special discount she's offering for our wonderful readers, queers and allies alike! Since Erica published the Austin Queer Weddings facebook page, she heard from one newlywed lesbian couple lamenting the fact that they hadn't found a photographer specifically catering to the queer community when they were planning. Erica is hoping to fill that void with Austin Queer Weddings, and we're only too happy to help spread the news. I'm a queer Austin photographer. I've been in the wedding photography business for over 10 years, and I'm itching to work more within my community. Not only are gay weddings super heart-warming to me, I also identify with the family baggage that often comes along with same-sex marriage. Marriage for some of us in the gay community can be more complex. To be honest, all weddings have some family drama. Being a Queer Texan, I personally identify with the difficulties that come with being LGBTQ. That's why photographing gay weddings has become my mission and an inspiration for me. –Erica Nix To kick off the start of her new wedding photography business, Erica is offering a special Austin Queer Weddings promotion to our readers… OFFBEAT DISCOUNT: Get 10% off your wedding package when you mention that you saw Austin Queer Weddings on Offbeat Bride when you contact her! This discount is open to ALL Offbeat Bride readers including both LGBTQ and their allies. We love wedding photographers who are not only passionate about their work, but also passionate about their clients. I encourage all our LGBTA readers to support Austin Queer Weddings!
