Ella is my cousin.
She is the mother of a darling little girl, Lily, whom I have a photographic responsibility to capture over the years :)
She and Jason had a beautiful wedding in the beautiful setting of Stern Grove in SF. It was a cool sunny day, and the light filtering through the hundred year old redwood trees made the day even more magical!
Though I wasn't the photographer for the day, how can I not bring my gear for such an event? It was nice not having to worry about photographing every detail...plus, there were dozens of photographers already!!! Big cameras, small cameras...I felt like I didn't need to click my shutter since there were so many! But I did, and I enjoyed capturing not the event, but the people...weddings are so beautiful because you get to see family in such formal clothing, and EVERYONE wants a photo of themselves...including myself! I made sure I got my licks in on that memory card :)
Congrats Elle and welcome to the family (officially) Jason!!!!
