When Vanessa Willock wanted an Albuquerque photographer to shoot her same-sex commitment ceremony in 2006, she contacted Elane Photography. The response came as a shock: Co-owner Elaine Huguenin said she only worked on "traditional weddings."
"Are you saying that your company does not offer your photography services to same-sex couples?" Willock asked by email.
"Yes, you are correct in saying we do not photograph same-sex weddings," Huguenin responded.
