YAy! YOU'RE ELOPING in italy!!! I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU! It's simply the best.

Let's take another second to take it all in - You. Are. Getting. Married. In. ITALY!!!

You are definitely my kind of people. The traditional hassle of a big wedding with a bunch of guests just isn't your thing. You value intimate, stress-free, once-in-a-lifetime experiences - right? Love that about you both!! 

And what better place than Italy to commit to each other?!


Whether you want to explore the city of Rome, adventure in the Dolomite mountains, plan some epic activities drinking wine in Tuscany, or do a mixture of things - I'm committed to providing you with the most stunning images of yourselves you've ever seen along with an unforgettable day. 


I'm sure you've now realized there are so many more possibilities


than the typical local courthouse wedding; you may be feeling a bit more stressed than expected. No worries because that's where I come in!


I'm more than just your elopement photographer. Let me help you plan this day to be exactly what you dream! Having spent 3 months living in Italy and 3 years learning Italian, I have extensive knowledge of so many amazing places in Rome, Florence, Venice, Amalfi, and more. Whether you want to hike the Dolomite mountains, say "I do" on a boat off the coast of Amalfi, or experience agriturismo in wine country Tuscany -

 

I'll be there for you.

HEY, I'M GINA!! (and yes my last name is italian - mangia means "to eat")


I'M YOUR ROMCOM LOVIN', ELOPEMENT PLANNER, PERMIT FINDER, Italy EXPERT ADVENTURE BUDDY


I'm a sucker for a good love story - from Landon & Jamie in A Walk To Remember, to Monica & Chandler from Friends, to Jim & Pam from The Office - it never fails to make me cry and inspire me. I want to capture your romance in its unique and intimate form. That's why I love helping you plan your day so you two can focus on each other while I worry about the timeline and logistics. I'm here to help make your day look exactly how you envision it - as crazy or tame as you want! And I've been fortunate to experience living in Italy recently that has taught me so much about the country - from where to find the best gelato to how to understand the transportation system to information on what to expect in Italian culture and so much more.



Does that sound amazing to you? Awesome, me too!

KIND WORDS FROM MY Amazing COUPLES

Katy & Alix


My wife and I booked Gina's talents for our elopement ceremony in San Francisco and were beyond pleased with the whole experience. Gina was very professional throughout the booking process, taking time to get to know us over the phone, explaining the process, and helping us pick the perfect location for our elopement. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to accompany us on our special day — thanks, Gina!!!


Arizo & Jerome


We had Gina capture our wedding day and it was the most memorable and beautiful day because of Gina! She captured all of our happiness and more...! I can’t thank her enough! ... I probably look back at all of our pictures every day just scrolling through and it just brings me such joy! Gina was professional, fun, happy, and she even knew how nervous I was with taking pictures but made me feel so comfortable! My husband and I have finally found a photographer who is incredible and we will definitely have Gina be a part of our future special days so she can capture that for us!

Haoyue + Bixia


Gina is absolutely an amazing photographer, she provided us with a quality service and a reasonable price. We are so glad to have Gina shoot our elopement, she was instructing us doing poses all the time and captured our most precious moments. The photos were delivered to us quicker than expected with quality and we love them so much! Highly recommend her!

Sarah + Isaac


Having Gina as our elopement photographer was the best decision we could have made! We felt so comfortable around her and had so much fun during our photo sessions. You can see her attention to detail in everything, from the locations to poses, etc. Our elopement was shared with our closest family members who also raved about Gina’s professionalism and kind personality. During our day, we couldn’t wait to see our photos! Gina sent us sneak peeks within 48 hours and we LOVED them. We can’t wait to see the rest.

NOT ONLY WILL YOU GET TEAR-JERKING, JAW DROPPING PHOTOS TO REMEMBER THIS SPECIAL DAY BY, BUT YOU WILL ALSO GET...


Video Consultation

An initial phone consultation to get to know all about each other so that I can help you plan this day to be exactly what you dream - whatever that may look like! (and boy do I have some ideas for you if you don't even know where to start!) You will get to experience an unforgettable day with activities tailored to you to show off your unique love story all while it's captured to look back on for years to come.

Unlimited Communication

Consistent communication via email, phone calls, and/or video chats to plan out details so that you are more than prepared for your elopement day.

Location Guide & Scouting

I will help you choose the best spots from my knowledge and experience of living in Italy and visiting the country multiple times as well as extensive research to make sure we find you places you love!

Logistics Planner

Help with timeline building and expert advice on the best time of day to get prime lighting in each location and when to do each activity! You won't have to worry about figuring out all the logistics - I'm here to help make sure we plan things out in the best way to ensure we get those dreamy photos.

A posing & Prompting Expert

Someone who knows what prompts to give to evoke genuine emotions that will make you feel and look amazing. On top of that, I make sure to give you space to let your story unfold amongst the stunning backdrop of nature - these are the photos you won’t be able to wait to mount onto your walls, so make some room. 

And here's the cherry on top...


I send you at least 50 sneak peek photos within 48 hours so you can start sharing your beautiful photos with your friends and family right away instead of an iPhone selfie.

This is for those who want to have an unforgettable experience. An experience where you pinch yourself to see if you're dreaming - because if not now for your wedding, then when?! Let’s take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion!! You get a full day elopement PLUS a 2 hour engagement or day after session (let's document your trip to Italy along with your elopement day)

We can capture your finishing touches getting ready, an intimate first look, and a beautiful exchange of vows. We will get to go to epic locations, have some downtime to relax and eat some delicious pasta, get a glass of wine, or fuel up with some espresso. You have so much time for activities - whether that’s a hike to an epic viewpoint to exchange vows, going boating at sunset, wine tasting, or any other way you want to fill the day to be the most you.

HALF DAY

8 hours


This is perfect for the couple that wants to have most of their day documented. For couples that may want to go to locations that are a little further from each other or may have multiple activities planned! 

If you want a more slow-paced, stressed free day, then this is the package for you. Spending 8 hours together gives me the chance to really get to know you and capture the fullness of your love - from getting ready photos at your villa to sharing your vows overlooking the Amalfi coast, to smiling at the camera with your loved ones. To then adventuring to multiple locations, refueling by eating a delicious panino, having a quiet moment cutting cake together, to sharing your first dance along the Italian countryside.

The half-day experience is perfect for those who want to have a truly special elopement - a day where you keep thinking to yourself "is this real life?!"

The wonderful thing about elopements is that you can design it however you want - and I'm guessing you value intimate settings with no drama (same here).

Include them in your ceremony or photos after and then meet up with them later or the next day while you and your new spouse spend the day together -
