It came down to a matter of principles for Nang and Chris Mai. More specifically, their Christian principles.

The Novato, California couple surely will win plaudits from Bible believers everywhere for choosing to honor God by closing their photography business rather than shoot same-sex “wedding” ceremonies.

“[W]e have come to a difficult decision that we will no longer be in the wedding photography business,” the couple wrote on their website. “We are grateful for this experience as it has caused us to think about how our personal beliefs intersect with our business practices.”

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, T.J. Kelsall of San Francisco posted a comment on the company’s Facebook page earlier this month, which stated that Urloved Photography had declined to photograph him and his partner, Thai Lam.

The Mais said they referred Kelsall to another photographer who they thought would be more suitable as they personally were not comfortable with agreeing to the request themselves.

Then the firestorm started.

“Great shots, but this company denied me and my fiance, a same-sex couple, from their services,” Kelsall wrote on Facebook. “Stand up and say something about it.”

Following Kelsall’s complaint, the small business was “flooded with hate calls, emails and accusations that inaccurately depict our business,” the couple said.
