Colby & Brandon // An Engagement

Colby & Brandon.

I’ve worked a lot with these two and they have become incredible friends.
No fancy lights, no magazine or online features, no concepts. Not this time.

Just love.

Colby and Brandon are fighting hard for their love. It shouldn’t have to be that way. It’s hard to love yourself, let alone someone else, when there are a lot of ignorant people out there who don’t accept you for who you are. Well you know what? Screw them. Yeah. I said it.

It doesn’t matter who you love. Underneath it all, its the same love.

Colby and Brandon. Thank you so much for letting me capture your love. It was truly special.

I wish I had powerful words to write to you readers. But, I’m going to let you push play below, and let Macklemore do it for me.
There are a lot of pictures. Which is great, because there is a whole lotta love.

// We have to change us
// Whatever God you believe in
// We come from the same one
// Strip away the fear
// Underneath it’s all the same love
// About time that we raised up

    I have never seen such a charming couple. Colby and Brandon belong together. Their eyes, their touch, their caresses are part of a great love. The two have fought for their love and have been rewarded in the end. The photomontage is wonderful. There are natural photos, as Colby and Brandon are … I wish them all the very best for their future and look forward to the wedding photos! Greetings from Marion from Germany

    The love…just the absolute true love you can see is beautiful. I love engagement photos but these at this point in time are my favorite because they show that love is love, especially when marriage equality is soooooo important for the whole nation! Congrats boys and thank you Gabriel for sharing these beautiful photos!

    These have to be the best pictures i have ever seen. It captures the love and companionship not of two men but of two souls. It is very heart warming and inspiring to look at this set. But the only thing I am afraid of is the fact that they make a Superman pajama set in adult size. :)

    Beautiful photos Gabriel, but I’m even more in love with those blue shoes Brandon is wearing. Would you happen to know which brand they are? I’m dying to buy a pair.

  22. Okay…I needed that. Thanks. I wish Colby and Brandon all the best, and I’m so glad you shared these photos of them. Hope the backlash from the demon lovers — uh, I mean faux christians wasn’t too severe.

    So nice to see these photos! !Best wishes!

  45. One has to feel comfortable whatever you are wearing.
    Unfortunately, most never stop to think about what they will do with the wedding dress after the wedding.
    An additional fantastic factor about plus size casual dresses are
    that you will find hundreds, if not more, to choose from.
