Court Halts City’s Efforts to Force KY Photographer, Blogger to Promote Same-Sex Weddings

Chelsey Nelson Photographer

A federal district court issued an order Friday that halts enforcement of a Louisville law against a photographer and blogger while her artistic freedom lawsuit moves forward in court. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys represent Chelsey Nelson—an entrepreneur who specializes in photographing, editing, and blogging about weddings—in a legal challenge to a city law that forces her to use her artistic talents to promote same-sex wedding ceremonies if she photographs and blogs about weddings between one man and one woman. The court also denied the city’s request to throw out the lawsuit.
