Paige + Griffing Austin Wedding at Mercury Hall

Weddings

Oh Paige and Griffing. Where to begin. Maybe Freshmen year at Baylor? That’s where I (Elle) met Paige. We lived on the same floor in the dorms on campus. She was one of my very first friends and a lot has changed since then but Paige has stayed her calm, creative, accepting and all-loving self. As a couple, Paige and Griffing embody so much free-spirited joy and love for other people that their wedding was just one big hug, dancing, tears-of-joy fest. I’m so beyond honored I got to be there to witness all the moments that displayed their warmth and love for one another and the people that surround them. It was truly an epic day. Apologies for already using the word love way too many times in a post about a wedding. Also, warning: lots of photos that exhibit unparalleled amounts of joy below.

Aparna + Nathaniel
One of the reasons we love photographing weddings is the sheer range of emotions and events that happen in one day. With that said, it's safe to say that this wedding exhibited that range like no other we've ever photographed. And not because of the epic location (although the Asian Art Museum was in fact, spectacular) but because of it was full of the widest range of moments: holy, hilarious, awe-inspiring, sentimental, and honest. We felt two families coming together like never before. We saw two people commit to the rest of their lives steeped in tradition yet originality and creativity. Needless to say, we really hope you take the time to ...

Amanda + Joel’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement
Amanda and Joel contacted me a month or so before their elopement and I was thrilled. I had never shot an elopement before let alone at San Francisco City Hall. It was on a Monday, following up a long weekend of two weddings in two other cities so I was expected to be exhausted when it came to that day but instead it was deeply peaceful, calming and sacred experience. None of the pressure that can exist in a wedding was present, it was only two people fully focused on keeping the moment safe, intimate and authentic with four of their close friends. We had so much fun hitting up Golden Gate Park afterward and swapping favorite restaurants in t ...

Ushi + John’s Indian Ceremony at Campovida
Ushi and John had pretty much every weather pattern you can imagine in a single day with rain and momentary bursts of sun peeking through the clouds by the end of the evening and they were completely positive and joyful the whole way through. They gathered around their family and friends and had a traditional Indian ceremony which yes, did include John riding in on a horse, but none of these traditions were just because they should; they were each intentional and inspired by the rituals and spiritual traditions of Ushi's family. We were so inspired by how incredibly heartfelt and genuine everyone was and we really felt like two radically diff ...
