Gayiel Von's Memorial Service Concert
I photographed my first Memorial Service last month for Outword Magazine. It was actually more of a concert, with amazing local vocalists, musicians, readers and even Mayor Darryl Steinberg and Councilmember Steve Hansen honoring the late, great Gayiel Von. Miss Von was a Sacramento caberet icon, and Pioneer Congregational Church was full of her friends, families and admirers. Memorial services are not typically photographed, but apparently it's become more of a trend recently, undoubtedly due to the ubiquitousness of cell phones and images in almost all parts of our lives now, 24-7. For a full-length article on the service, see my friend Chris Narloch's Outword article (with a few of my accompanying photos) The Tributes to Miss Gayiel Von Roll On.
