Oh man. Where to begin with this lovely little family.
I met Michelle and Pat a little over a year before I photographed their wedding. Well, I should say I met Michelle and Pat and baby Patty on that day in December of 2020 … let me explain.

It is not too often that you can hear a photograph, but upon review of Gabriella’s photos of our adventure elopement, I can hear the laughter through the images…and there was a lot of laughter that day. Not only that, but I can feel the love in the photos she captured. While the end product was more than I could have ever imagined (absolutely gorgeous), the entire process of working with Gabriella was seamless. Her kindness and eagerness to work with us was apparent from our very first virtual meeting with her. We came to this meeting with a very vague vision for our elopement. We knew we wanted to hike on a trail which is considered “technical and strenuous” in the middle of February, but we did not know if any photographer would be up for this adventure or if it was even a feasible plan. Gabriella’s excitement for the adventure elopement was contagious and I left the meeting feeling eager and hopeful that our vision was a realistic one. She was fully “in”! I felt like I was working with a friend. Gabriella was responsive, friendly, informative, flexible, non-judgmental, and helpful. She guided us through the planning process, helped us pose for certain pictures (and we needed a lot of help!), secretly recorded the reading of our vows on her phone (a recording I now cherish and was able to share the day that was just the two of us with friends and family), and captured us naturally…laughing on a hike. I cannot recommend Gabriella enough. I urge you to book a meeting with her even if you are uncertain about your plans. I promise her kindness and passion for her work will be evident from your very first conversation.

Gabriella is an incredible photographer! She seamlessly guided us through our engagement session and made my fiancé and I feel comfortable in front of the lens. Gabriella was so thoughtful, organized, and kind AND she truly brought my vision to life! She was also extremely accommodating of our hectic schedule. I cannot emphasize enough how comfortable Gabriella made us feel which allowed her to capture beautiful candid moments as well. She also sent us both the sneak peak and full gallery in a timely manner. We will forever treasure these photos and I could not be happier with our decision to choose Gabriella to photograph our engagement!

Where to even begin, Gabriella did a phenomenal job making us feel comfortable and is so incredibly positive and charismatic! She not only is talented but made sure we got the best service possible. She worked very hard to get out product to us in a timely manner. She exceeded our expectations as a photographer and we are beyond excited to work with her again at our wedding. From start to finish she had great communication and had a great vision for us! I highly recommend her and you will not be disappointed if you chose her for whatever your needs may be.

Outstanding! Gabriella was professional, punctual, patient, kind, and so much more. I only have sneak peek images right now, but she captured the romance of our day. When she left, I felt like I was saying goodbye to a new family member. During the build up of the wedding, her responsivenes, and reassuring attitude gave me confidence we had selected the perfect photographer for our day. Gabriella's peaceful demeanor brought such calm to our evening. She simply did what she was there to do, while smiling and giving direction as needed. I'm so grateful to her and I look forward to our post pandemic wedding party where we can do it again.
Gabriella was awesome!! So personable and friendly! She took the time to help my fiancé pick the best proposal spot and the pictures came out amazing ! She sent us some pictures the same day and had a quick turn around time for the rest of the gallery. I would highly recommend her!! Can’t wait to work with her again!

Gabriella was great to work with. She was responsive and enthusiastic throughout the entire process. Not only did she capture amazing photos, but also helped plan my surprise proposal. She was flexible and accommodating the entire way. She provided several photos the same day as the shoot and was very timely in editing and sending over our entire gallery. I would highly recommend Gabriella to anyone looking for a photographer.
