YAY! You're Planning to elope! I'm so excited for you! It's simply the best.


You're my kind of people - for you, the traditional, big wedding just isn't your style. I'm guessing you value intimate and stress-free experiences - am I right or am I right? I love that about you two!!

Maybe you want to explore the city, adventure in nature, or do a mixture of both. However, now that you've realized there's so many options and possibilities, you may feel more stressed than excited. That's great - 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! Born and raised in the Bay Area, I have extensive knowledge of all the amazing places in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and all around the Bay. Whether you want to see the sights in San Francisco, explore the beaches and cliff-sides in Santa Cruz, or adventure around the beautiful coast and redwoods in Big Sur -


I'll be there for you.

HEY, I'M GINA!!


I'm your romcom lovin', elopement planner, permit finder, adventure buddy all wrapped up into one


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 true, unique, intimate form. That's why I love helping you plan your day so you two can bask in the presence of each other and let me worry about the timeline and logistics. I'm here to help make your day look exactly how you envision - as crazy or tame as you want!

Does that sound amazing to you? Same here!

Kind words from my couples

Arizo + Jerome


“We had Gina capture our city hall 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 everyday 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...!”

01 / 03

Not only will you get Jaw Dropping photos to remember this special day by, but you will also get...


  • Someone who will 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!)
  • Consistent communication via email, phone call, and/or video chat to hash out details.
  • My brain full of knowledge of the most beautiful places in San Francisco, the North Bay, Santa Cruz, and all along the Peninsula. I will help you choose the best spots, plus a few extra in case of weather or unforeseen circumstances!
  • A guide in how to feel comfortable in front of the camera - I love to approach elopement days with a combination of being right by your side along with knowing when to hang back to let you enjoy some intimate moments together.
  • A couple bottles of champagne - one to pop for photos and one to enjoy! (or another drink of your choosing!)
  • Expertise on the best time of day to get the prime lighting in each location and when to do each activity!
  • A stylist that will help you plan outfits and you will also have access to any of my decor/props to use in styling your day!
  • An expert on Friends, The Office, New Girl, and Schitt's Creek - I'm your girl if you love nostalgia and to be reminded of home.

And here's another bonus...


I give sneak peeks within 48 hours so you can start sharing your beautiful photos with your friends and family right away instead of an iPhone selfie. No way will I let you share iPhone photos when you just got the most beautiful photos of you ever taken!

The people who love you are going to wish they were there with you - so they'll be so excited to see how gorgeous your day was and you will get to relive the best day ever all over again.

Full Day

12 hours

+ 2 hour engagement or day after session


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 elopement, 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


We can capture your finishing touches getting ready, an intimate first look, a beautiful exchanging of vows. We will get to go to so many epic locations, have some down time to relax and eat some bomb food, we can get beer or fuel up with some coffee (I know the best spots in SF and Santa Cruz). You have so much time for activities - whether that’s a hike to an epic viewpoint to exchange vows, going boating at sunset, brewery hopping, surfing, or any other way you want to fill the day to be the most you. I can’t wait to hear what your perfect day is!


This package can be split between sunrise and sunset to maximize the prime golden hour lighting!


$5,800

Half DAY

8 hours


This is perfect for the couple that wants to have their day documented, who may have locations a little further from each other (we can go from San Francisco down to Big Sur if you want!), 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, to sharing your vows with one another, having time to get photos with your loved ones, adventuring to multiple locations, getting to enjoy a picnic or cake cutting together, to sharing your first dance together amongst the perfect backdrop. 

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


*My most popular package*


$4,000 

Mini

4 hours


This is the perfect short amount of time for the couples who want to have their ceremony documented and enjoy a quick adventure together. For those who don’t have a big guest list or any at all. 

Great for those quick SF City Hall elopements with one location afterwards. 


Limited availability 


$3,000

Travel is included to anywhere in the Bay Area, North Bay (up to Point Reyes), Santa Cruz, and Big Sur for all elopement packages. All elopements include timeline building because let me carry the stress - not you! You will also get an online gallery of high resolution images and printing rights.

SO YOU STILL HAVE SOME QUESTIONS BEFORE GETTING IN TOUCH


You may wonder, "Can I bring my family and friends?"


And my answer is, OF COURSE!! 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). So I would advise keeping your group small with only your closest loved ones who are thrilled for this next step in your lives! Include them in your ceremony or photos after and then meet up with them later while you and your new spouse spend the day together -

just the two of you.
