Highlight 2015: Gay Marriage Is Legal!

The biggest news of the year, the decade and the new millennium (as far as we're concerned, at least) is the Supremes Court's  landmark decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. In a 5-4 decision, the Court held that same-sex couples are guaranteed the right the marry by the Due Process Clause and the 14th Amendment. 

Upon hearing the good news on June 26, Sharon and I jumped for joy and ran to grab our cameras. And then we headed out to document the celebrations and marriages taking place in and around Atlanta.

Here are a few or our favorite photos:
