I’ve been in love with photography my whole life. When I was young, my grandpa gave me one of his 35mm cameras and I used to photograph what I came across in the fields of South Dakota and delight in its appearance in the darkroom I created in my home. Light is my obsession and biggest inspiration. It brings beauty to everyday life. A splash of light on my bedroom wall or refraction from a glass of water delights me. I love this way of seeing because it shows me the magic that’s all around us that most people don’t notice. 

In the past, I’ve worked as a commercial photographer for a wide range of clients including Disney and Google. I’m active in the fine art community, showing my personal work in galleries and online. When I started photographing weddings, something clicked. I love it. The emotion, the fast pace and the authenticity speaks to everything I find exciting and meaningful. Photography is also an incredible narrative tool and I do enjoy telling a good story. My style is romantic and I’m interested in true moments of connection. My approach includes a combination of artistic portraits, thoughtful details and candid images.  

I currently live in Los Angeles with my talented boyfriend Josh & our sweet pup Taco. If I’m not shooting, I’m probably doing one of my favorite things like exploring in nature, soaking at the Korean spa, getting in a good laugh with my girlfriends or whipping up a delicious dessert.

Kind Words

Gina was so lovely, creative, accommodating, and kind. As a bride who hates having her photo taken, I cannot imagine another photographer making hours of photo taking seem fun! The results were beautiful. She captured the mood, architecture, and lighting of the setting perfectly. And all of the images have an organic sense of movement, joy, and life. I highly recommend working with Gina.

Gina is a gem. She will make you look great because she will make you feel great! Beyond the fact that she is a gifted photographer, she is also a joy to have around. Having Gina there during makeup and dress up time was so fun. Her energy made me feel at ease. My mom and sister fell in love with her. We were all having a blast as we were getting ready, and she really captured our playful spirit and that exciting moment. When I look back at those pictures all I can do is smile! Her vibe throughout the entire event was wonderful. She was professional and grounded, and she flowed through the crowd seamlessly. At no point did I feel like I needed to pose. Every photo seems authentic. We have such great pictures from our special day and we really couldn’t be happier.

Gina is a consummate professional. She was always on time and communicative, and she offered suggestions when I was at a loss. For example, our wedding venue was somewhat untraditional so I didn’t really know where the aisle should be or where we should stand. But Gina knew! She’s a true artist - she’s creative and able to capture such beautiful moments. Gina is all about “the light!!” and is always on the hunt for the sun’s rays breaking through the clouds in just the right way, which gives her photos a quality and a uniqueness that makes her the success that she is. She is so fun to work with as well. She keeps the mood light and the energy up, so that her subjects are still excited, even after a long and exhausting day. What I loved most about working with Gina (for both our engagement shoot and our wedding) was how approachable she was. We aren’t “picture people” but you can’t tell from the photos! She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and made the entire experience so much fun! Thank you Gina! We had the best time working with you!

Gina was amazing to work with from the first email we sent her. She talked us through her services and helped us determine what we really wanted as we navigated capturing our wedding day. Gina shot our engagements photos prior to our wedding and we knew we picked the best photographer to capture our wedding. We had so much fun with Gina and felt at ease throughout our photos. We absolutely LOVE our engagement and wedding photos. Gina is an incredible photographer and we recommend her highly!!

Gina is great to work with, very responsive and professional. I enjoyed working with her because she is nice and just all round awesome (and funny!). Gina shot our wedding and we loved our beautiful wedding photos. She is creative (which we love) and completely gets your style once speaking to her. Gina was highly recommended through a friend and we are so happy we chose her for our wedding photographer. She also did my boudoir photo shoot and the pictures were amazing. Gina is passionate about her photography and her work quality shines through while she is taking photos and the photos she captures. You’ll love working with Gina. She is the best!
