YAY! You're Planning to elope!

You have realized that the traditional, big wedding just isn't your style. You want a day and an experience that you can tailor exactly to who you are as a couple! You may want to explore the city, adventure in nature, or do a mixture of both. However, now that you've realized the possibilities are quite literally endless, you may feel more stressed than excited. That's where I come in!

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 sights 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 visit the beautiful coast in Big Sur - I'll be there for you.

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...!”

I'm Ready!

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.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based in the Bay Area and I live in San Jose, CA. I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come because I want to be as accessible as possible!
My pricing includes travel to anywhere in the Bay Area, North Bay, Santa Cruz, and Big Sur for all elopement packages as well as all other sessions.

When do you start charging a travel fee?

My prices are set to cover any location in the Bay Area. Anything past that will require a travel fee and will be calculated accordingly.

When will we get our photos?

You will receive an online gallery link with your photos within maximum 3 weeks (4-6 weeks for elopements). For all sessions that are not elopements, you will then choose the photos you want to keep. Once you've finished choosing, I will send you a new gallery with your chosen photos that you can download from an online gallery and you can share them, choose your favorites, and order prints!

Do you shoot weddings?

Right now I only do elopements! Sorry for any inconvenience!

How many photos will we receive?

Solo portraits will include 40 photos and any sessions with 2+ people will receive 50 photos. I will edit the photos and send a watermarked gallery to you and you will choose your photos by favoriting them. If there are more photos than the amount included that you love, you are more than welcome to purchase them! Each extra photo is $10 or you can purchase the whole gallery at a discounted rate of $250.
Elopements will get all photos I cull and edit.

Do you do family or grad sessions?

I am no longer taking on these type of sessions. Thank you so much for your interest and I wish you the best in finding the perfect photographer for you!
