Elizabeth Gamble Garden Wedding Photographer | The bride was walked into the ceremony by her Dad
Image Location: 
Gamble Gardens. Palo Alto, CA.

Jeanne was walked into the ceremony by her Dad. They started inside the old historic house at the Gamble Gardens. I knew I wanted to make an image from inside the house as they made their way down the steps. This vantage point is so telling and provides a wealth of information for the photo story. It being an elopement in COVID times, I was photographing solo. There was no 2nd photographer and no assistant. So, after making this image, I ran from this place out the side door and into the gardens so I could also document the reverse perspective from where Charlie, the groom, was waiting.
