Same Love

Documenting a historical milestone, photographer Andrew Nixon captured this image of the first moments of Nicola Simmersbach (left) and Diana Luiz’s lives as a married couple. The pair was among the first of the same-sex couples who wed at the Sacramento County Clerk Recorder’s Office on June 28, 2013, the first day gay and lesbian marriages legally took place in California since 2008, when the unions were legal for a few months before Proposition 8 took effect.
