From inquiry to gallery delivery, this is what the entire process of working with me will look like ... because I believe hiring a wedding photographer means so much more than hiring a person to click a button for a certain number of hours.
This is when we get to know each other!! We’ll hop on Zoom to talk about your love story, your wedding vision and which wedding collection best suits your one-of-a-kind day!!
This is my way of getting nitty gritty details! Think: contact info, shot list for family photos, etc. You’ll find a small one in your inbox right after booking & a big one about three months out from your wedding.
I use that big questionnaire to create a detailed photography timeline which will be used the day of your wedding to make we don't miss any important moments. We'll go over this together!
THIS IS IT!!! I will be floating all over the place, documenting one of the most important days of your life in the most beautiful way possible. If you need anything (including deodorant), I’m your gal.
Yeeeeehaw!! I’ll send you sneak peeks within 3 days and the final online gallery within 6 weeks. You have full printing/posting rights, AND you can order prints right from the gallery itself!
Wedding albums are such a great way to celebrate your love! I custom design albums & I'd love to work together to make sure your album tells the story of your magical day just how you remember it!!
For both the sneak peek and the full gallery, I'll email you a link to a private online gallery. It kind of acts like its own website. From there, you can favorite photos, hide photos from public view, share photos with others and even purchase prints in the online store connected to the gallery.
No matter the session type, I send you a sneak peek within 48 hours so you can have something to hold onto while I edit the rest of your gallery! Wedding gallery delivery happens within 4-6 weeks; engagement gallery delivery happens within 4 weeks.
No. I don't provide RAW photos because that's not what you paid for!! Every single image will be individually edited and hand-tweaked with love to ensure you get the best possible product with your final gallery.
As the creator of the images, I retain the copyright. However, I grant full printing/posting/duplicating rights (for personal use) to all my clients! Once I deliver those pictures, they are effectively yours.
Yes, the 50% deposit is non-refundable. When you book a wedding date with me, that means I'm turning down other couples inquiring for that same date! There will be a lot of information regarding this in the photography contract.
I send a questionnaire to get to know you better!! For a wedding, I mail you my Wedding Welcome Guide to help you plan your wedding with photos in mind. I'll send another questionnaire 3 months out to create your timeline, which we'll go over together. Throughout all of this, I make sure to stay in touch!
In the event I'm unable to photograph your wedding, the second photographer will step up to lead photographer position and I will find another second photographer. If there is no second, the photography community is strong and I will find someone I trust to take over the day-of. I will still edit the photos!
All remaining payments will be canceled, but the deposit remains non-refundable. There will be more details about this in your specific contract!
Youuu bet!! I love working with couples to create tangible memories they can hold after their wedding. If you are interested in an album, please let me know as soon as possible so I can start designing while the wedding is still fresh in my mind! It is a collaborative process, meaning you will have final say over the final album design.
Yes! There is an online store attached to your gallery offering high quality prints, canvases, framed prints, metal prints, etc etc. If you have a special request for an extra large print, reach out to me separately and I will send you a specific file for printing.
For your wedding, you will have unrestricted access to your online gallery for one year. For your engagement, you will have unrestricted access to your online gallery for six months. After that, you have the option to keep the gallery open at the rate of $60/year. Even though your gallery may expire, I have your images backed up in multiple places.
Yes!! Any current or past client of mine who refers an inquiring couple to me will get a FREE one-hour anniversary session if that inquiring couple books a wedding with me :)
You deserve to have the wedding of your dreams. You deserve to look back on your wedding day with joy. You deserve wedding photos that bring back the same emotions that filled your heart the moment you said "I do".
Because of that, I don't take on every wedding I'm asked to photograph. It's important to make sure we share similar values so that I can provide you with the best possible experience and document what matters most to you on one of the biggest days of your life.
I'd love to learn more about your love story! Fill out the contact form and I'll reach out as soon as I can to chat about life, love and all things weddings :)

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Making my dream wedding come true!
Gabriella was hired by my (now) husband, as a surprise photographer for our proposal. She was phenomenal and we hired her for our wedding as well! Her energy and vision for our wedding photos captured every moment and emotion. She was amazing in every way. Her attention to detail and knowing what was important to me on my big day was awesome - she went the extra mile. I would 10/10 recommend her to any one wanting to capture beautiful moments in life - for their engagement, wedding, and more.
- Megan W.
Hiring Gabriella was one of the best decisions that we made during our wedding planning. From our very first conversation, Gabriella was warm & bubbly. She radiates positive energy that I knew that we needed for our big day. Gabriella has a vigorous work ethic and eye for detail. Her ability to transform any setting is pure magic. We enjoyed working with her throughout the planning process and are absolutely thrilled with our engagement and wedding photos (which she had edited and back to us in less than one month!).

What can we say about Gabriella Marie Photography. There are so many words to describe the amazing job Gabriella did on our special wedding day. Gabriella will not only shoot your wedding, she can help you design what your wedding will be. She is there every step of the way. She has amazing attention to detail. Before the big day, Gabriella has a plan that will ensure that your day will be spectacular. She is always available via text, call, direct message, FaceTime or Zoom. Gabriella is the absolute best photographer ever. The best quality that she has is that she is more than a photographer, she is a true friend. She cares about her clients and makes us feel like a trust-worthy friend is there to help. For example, she sent my wife and I a pre-wedding care package. This gift proved to be so valuable for us while dealing with wedding stress. This gift was the most thoughtful thing my wife and I ever received. A simple thank you is just only the tip of the iceberg with regarding Gabriella Marie Photography. Everyone please check out our new friend Gabriella. Trust us, she is worth every penny and more.
