San Francisco, Big Sur, Yosemite, and beyond!

I’m so excited to work with you if you want something more unique than the typical city hall ceremony. Let’s dream big together! 

I will help make your day so amazing that you will pinch yourself [potentially multiple times] to see if you’re dreaming. 

Whatever you have in mind, I’ll be there for you

Hi, I'm Gina!

I'm here to help you tell your story by capturing all the small details that add up to create your complete love story!

As an introvert, I am naturally more perceptive of the world around me and I bring that into my photography. I absolutely love working with easy-going, upbeat couples who are unapologetically in love and who aren't afraid to be themselves because the energy you bring is unmatched! Whether you're introverted or extroverted, as long as you're willing to trust me and let your guard down, get a little dirty, and don't take life too seriously then I know we will create beautiful photographs that tell your story just as it is!

I'm on a mission to take the anxiety out of photoshoots by coming ready with a plan and flexibility to adapt when need be so you can just focus on each other!

“Gina is an awesome photographer!! … She DID NOT disappoint! I fell in love with literally the whole gallery she sent us and it was probably the best investment thus far for photos! The photos she had delivered to us was everything I have dreamed of and now I blown up many of her photos and hung them up in our living room … I highly recommend Gina! She was so easy going and we were super comfortable around her. I would definitely use her again in the future!”
