Our future is certainly together, for better or worse, but we try not to constrict our lives by other people’s ideals or views from society simply because of what was considered, in the past, the ‘norm’.
Here at F* Yeah we want to represent couples who are true to themselves and to their stories. We do this by sharing with you their engagement and wedding moments via beautiful imagery. But not all LGBTIQ couples wish to represent their love for one another through an engagement or wedding, but rather in their own way. This is exactly what Duncan and Joshua’s shoot represented…for better or worse.
Duncan and Joshua are “two laid back guys who are smarter than your average gay, lol” – clearly with a good sense of humour. Like most couples, they “enjoy shopping, travel and going to look at open houses on weekends for the inspiration and ideas we can get for our own living space, as well as keeping our eye on the property market for a possible investment property.”
Duncan and Joshua met through mutual friends while both living in a small town, which meant that they “saw each other around on weekends at a local gay club.” The boys have been together for 9.5 years (whoa right) and they “couldn’t imagine life any other way, and are looking forward to celebrating our decade anniversary, and being together for many more to come.” Naaaaaawwwwwwww.
Warning, more mooshie words coming atcha from Duncan and Joshua:
“Neither of us has proposed as yet, so we are not really engaged or married. We have spoken about it together several times though. Duncan loves the idea of getting married, if only for the events associated with it and presents. We both decided we would hold off on marriage, and therefore the engagement, until it is legally recognised in Australia. It’s important to us that if we are to make a statement and commitment of such magnitude to each other, it should have all the same legalities associated with it as is currently given to heterosexual couples. We don’t know that we will get married, but we certainly aren’t ruling it out either.”
Duncan and Joshua’s images were shot in Sydney, NSW by the talents of Adam Cavanagh of Cavanagh Photography.
