Best of Boston Wedding Photographs: Boston Wedding Photographer

Wow, what a year! It was wonderfully overwhelming to revisit the wedding photographs I captured this past year while picking out my Best of Boston Wedding Photographs of 2018. As always, I focused on the interactions, connections and emotions that show who these beautiful people are and tell the story of their very important day. Witnessing these moments of commitment, celebration and unwavering love is something I’m really grateful for. Documenting couples as they embark on this new journey warms my heart and I want to thank each of them for being so very wonderful to work with. Congratulations guys, may 2019 bring even more beautiful moments your way.

Best of Boston Family Photographs: 2018 – Boston Family Photographer

I’m so grateful to be invited into the homes and lives of families – to document who they are and how they love one another. Family life is such a beautiful thing, but that beauty can often hide behind the rushing, daily routines and lack of sleep. To stop, see it and preserve it is a way to celebrate it. To remember it. Not only when everyone is all grown up, but as they’re growing. To remind you that there is beauty and so much love in the everyday life you have created together.

I really enjoyed selecting my Best of Boston Family Photographs: 2018 and want to thank each and every one of the families I was fortunate enough to work with. You inspire me as a mom and warm my heart with all your love and joy.

This collection of photographs was captured in family homes, nearby parks and other significant places these families spend time together. While I worked unobtrusively, they enjoyed each other and did what they like doing best as family. If you’d like to take a break, spend some uninterrupted time together and capture the beauty of your family life – please get in touch. I’d love to begin the conversation.

Best of Boston Engagement Photographs: 2018 | Boston Engagement Photographer

Looking through the sessions I photographed this past year is a highlight of this chilly, peaceful January. It reaffirms just how lucky I am to hang out with couples and document them doing what they love, together. After revisiting a large collection of interactions, connections and so much love – I’m excited to share my Best of Boston Engagement Photographs: 2018. I love when an engagement session feels like a great date. When a couple can totally forget about the camera and have some uninterrupted time together in places they find significant. These images were captured all over Boston: in coffee shops, bars, book stores, parks, homes and a bit further out too. I can’t thank each and every couple enough for inviting me to document them being themselves. Congratulations to all of you! Enjoy this exciting and special time in your lives and the journey ahead!

Taj Boston Wedding | Boston Wedding Photographer | Melissa & Greg

I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Melissa & Greg until their wedding day, but felt comfortable with them straight away. Their Taj Boston Wedding began in the morning and I enjoyed documenting every bit of it. Their good friend officiated their intimate ceremony and it was wonderfully personal and extremely heartwarming. After taking some time for just the two of them and strolling through the Public Gardens, they celebrated with an amazing brunch and dancing on The Roof. Joe of Sounds Buono had everyone on the dance floor and it was a really awesome and beautiful day. Greg’s mom, Marky is a photographer and it is always flattering when someone of her expertise trusts you to photograph such an important day. I can’t thank Melissa, Greg and their loved ones enough for being so incredible to work with. Congratulations you two, here’s to a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness!

 

“Gina did a phenomenal job documenting our wedding, and we were so thrilled to work with her. Her photos came out beautifully; we were incredibly impressed by how many little details she captured, everything from intricate floral arrangements to amusing facial expressions. We really have no idea how she was able to take so many great shots, and from so many different angles, too–it’s like she knows how to be in two places at once! Throughout it all, she was an absolute pleasure to work with, and we felt very glad to have her be part of this important day in our lives. Her photos will help us to remember the day in vivid detail for years to come.”

-Melissa and Greg

 

 

South End Boston Engagement Session | Boston Engagement Photographer | Andrea & Alex

I had a great time hanging out with Andrea & Alex during their South End Boston Engagement Session. After meeting them at their place, we strolled around their neighbourhood as they usually do. They watched the dogs at the park , wandered through their favorite streets and grabbed a celebratory drink at Aquitaine. I always encourage couples to do their normal thing during an engagement session and am so glad Andrea & Alex did just that. They got to spend some uninterupted time enjoying each others company; and I know they’ll love looking back at these real everyday moments they shared in and around their first home. I am really looking forward to documenting their wedding at Cyclorama this fall and know it’s going to be an incredible day focused on celebrating the love and commitment these two have. A huge congratulations guys, so glad we crossed paths!
