Hi! I’m Gina
It’s always been about photography.
When I was a kid growing up in Michigan, I was always fooling around with my mom’s old manual cameras and capturing everything my friends and I did. I took traditional art classes in high school, but even then, I was merely creating paintings of the photos I had taken.
I went on to study documentary photography at the Maryland Institute of Art and abroad at the University of Wales, where I won the Nikon Discovery Award Grand Prize and was named one of the 25 Under 25 Up-and-Coming American Photographers (you can check out some of that work by visiting ginamariebrocker.com).
Frankly, wedding and lifestyle photography wasn’t in the plans. But then a friend asked me to assist at a wedding she was photographing, and my plans changed in an instant. I realized weddings (and eventually engagement sessions and family photography) allowed me to capture the moments I love most – those full of life, love and connection. I came back from that first shoot with a buzz, and I’ve had that same feeling every shoot since.
I’m married to a wonderful Irish man from County Mayo, Ireland and we have two incredible – and incredibly different! – littles. My idea of a perfect Sunday (if I’m not off photographing somewhere) includes spending the day in the outdoors and the evening on the couch, watching a movie, eating good food and drinking a good beer.
I’m available throughout New England, but if you’re located elsewhere, still feel free to reach out. You know what they say – have camera, will travel!
LET'S WORK TOGETHER.
Have a story that needs telling? I’d love to help. Give me a shout, and we’ll start a conversation.
