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!

Fairmont Copley Wedding | Boston Wedding Photographer | Lauren & Jordan

Such a brilliant day. Lauren & Jordan’s Fairmont Copley Wedding was fun, beautiful and focused on celebrating the important commitment these two made. Lauren and Jordan have been together since they were teenagers and the history and comfort they have with each other is wonderful. They share a home in this gorgeous part of the city and I loved that we captured their portraits and celebrated in their usual stomping ground. These two really compliment each other and I enjoyed documenting them and their loved ones on this very special day. I can’t thank you enough for being so amazing to work with Lauren & Jordan!! Here’s to many more years together guys! Congratulations!

“We were so thrilled that we were able to have Gina photograph our wedding! We had been looking at dozens of photographers but when I saw Gina’s portfolio, I knew she was exactly what we were looking for. Her work is SO incredibly beautiful and represents the perfect blend of documentary, candid and formal shots that we were looking for in a wedding photographer. Not only are her images beautiful, but she is such a pleasure to work with! She’s so warm and engaging, making you feel like a friend right from the start. During our engagement shoot, she made us feel so comfortable and captured pictures that we will cherish forever. As the wedding approached, Gina continued to check in with us to finalize all the details and was very prompt to respond to all my emails. On the day of the wedding, she was so wonderful! She shot all the pictures on our shot list but also caught so many amazing, candid moments that we would have never remembered otherwise, all the while being completely unobtrusive. We didn’t even know she was there! Gina’s work is truly special and we are so in love with all our photographs. We feel so lucky to have had Gina document our wedding day and cannot recommend her enough.”

– Lauren & Jordan

 

Three Sisters Lifestyle Family Session | Evergreen Family Photographer | Weaver Family

Evergreen, Colorado became my second home when my sister, Portia, moved out their with her husband, Ben, and little girl, Evie, nearly two years ago. They had lived in this incredible place previously and returned after spending eight years in Australia, where Ben is from. Apart from the mountains and sunshine, I love Colorado for it’s down to earth, friendly people. I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the Weaver family the previous year during their Curtis Park Family Session and was delighted to meet up with them again in Evergreen for their Three Sisters Lifestyle Family Session. Delilah and Crosby are such special kiddos and I really enjoyed seeing how they have grown over the last year. This time, they brought their dog and I’m so glad they did. It was such a pleasure tagging along with this family as they walked, climbed and played in this beautiful spot. Thanks so much for inviting me to document your family Rachel & Cody, I look forward to the next time!

Lyman Estate Wedding Photographs | Boston Wedding Photographer | Julia & Christophe

Julia & Christophe were a pleasure to be around and I really enjoyed capturing their Lyman Estate Wedding Photographs. Christophe grew up in Germany and it was lovely to have his family and friends come such a distance to support them. These two are amazing artists and it was seen and felt throughout their elegant and intimate day. The ceremony took place under a beautiful tree and so many personal elements were included during this meaningful and touching occasion. They danced down the aisle after becoming husband and wife and spent a few minutes alone before joining the celebrations. Witnessing and documenting their love and special relationship was heartwarming and I want to thank Julia, Christophe and Arielle for inviting me to photograph this important day. Congratulations again guys!
