Wow! What an incredible day! Andrea and Alex are some of my favorite people and documenting their Cyclorama Wedding in Boston’s South End was amazing. I met these two in their neighborhood coffee shop and also had the pleasure of hanging out with them during their South End Engagement Session. I love that this wonderful spot in Boston, where they call home, has so many significant memories for them.
The Nor’easter joined us on their wedding day but they rolled with the intense wind and rain and even walked over to Cyclorama from their favorite neighborhood bar, Barcelona, without a flinch. Their ceremony was as beautiful as it was personal. The speeches were touching with hilarious moments and the celebrations that followed didn’t disappoint. I’m so glad I was there to document this epic day for them.
The Irish say rain on your wedding day is good luck – that a wet knot is harder to untie. I don’t think these two need any luck but they sure have a lot of it now! Congratulations Andrea & Alex!
“Where do we even begin!? I feel so lucky that we found Gina. From the minute that we met her, we knew we wanted to work with her. Beyond being in love with her past work, she was kind and patient and warm and genuine — she expressed just as much excitement about planning for our wedding as we did. She went above and beyond to answer our questions and was always offering to help in any way she could, even beyond photography-related things! She really took the time to get to know us and to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed.
We first met with Gina about 10 months before our actual wedding, but from there on out, she made a constant effort to check in all throughout our planning process and was incredibly helpful when it came time to planning our day-of timeline. She never hesitated to offer her expertise and always made time for us! She always made me, and my family, feel like a priority and I was so appreciative of that.
Nothing like a little good luck rain on your wedding day, and in our case, it was torrential downpours! This threw a bit of wrench in our outdoor photo plans, but Gina jumped right in to help seamlessly transition our whole wedding party to our rain plan and made sure that we still got all the photos that we wanted. She braved the weather with us, sloshed around in the rain, ran in and out of neighborhood bars and never missed a beat — all to make sure we got all the best pictures. I already knew this, of course, but so many of our friends and family members made a point to tell me how wonderful Gina was to have around us that day — she captured the quiet moments and you didn’t even know she was there, and then she jumped in to help keep everyone organized and on time through lots of pictures on a tight schedule, and still made sure everyone had fun!
Our wedding photos came out better than I could have ever expected. We really wanted a focus on the real-life, candid moments of the night and Gina did just that. She has an amazing way of capturing the magic of the moments — big and small — and every day when I look back through all the pictures, I get to re-live them all. She truly captured every emotion so beautifully — all the laughs and tears and excitement and love. While the night went by way too fast, we’re so lucky to have all of these beautiful photos to look back at forever and can’t begin to thank Gina enough for making that possible. She’s the best and we can’t wait to work with her again someday!!”
