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.”

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!

Lifestyle Family Session at Jamaica Pond | Boston Family Photographer | Joey

I was thrilled when Sarah got in touch about a session for Joey’s second birthday. I had met up with these guys the previous year, when Joey turned one, and this Lifestyle Family Session at Jamaica Pond was equally joyful. Tagging along with these guys while they hung out was heartwarming and incredibly fun. They spend a lot of time at Jamaica Pond and capturing this typical outing for them was so rewarding. It is the subtle, routine moments that bring us back and spark those feelings again: the way he holds your hand, the smoosh of his face when you kiss him, that laugh… I am so glad Sarah, Mike and Joey have a record of this day to bring back all the feelings they’ll want to hold onto. Thanks again for being so wonderful to work with guys!

Here’s Sarah, Mike & Joey’s Jamaica Pond Family Session from the previous year when he turned one!

“My heart is exploding and I’m only halfway through.

I need to take a break and come back to them before I end up in a puddle on the floor.
I love these so. freakin’. much.
As always, you did an incredible job.
Thank you,
Sarah”

Backyard Wedding in New Hampshire | New Hampshire Wedding Photographer | Brittney & Jason

Backyard weddings are my favorite. They are relaxed, intimate and focused on celebrating with those closest to you. Brittney and Jason’s Backyard Wedding in New Hampshire was all of these things and so enjoyable to document. These two are incredibly kind and their friends and family were so welcoming throughout the day. Each part of the day was genuine, natural and centered around the important union of Brittney & Jason. I want to thank them for inviting me to photograph such a special day for them – it was an absolute pleasure! Congratulation again guys!

Venue: Scott & Wendy Harrington’s Backyard!, Hair & Makeup: Portsmouth Spa (Alex & Stephanie) & Caterer: Lil’ Miss Sophie’s (Jess & Sue)

“Gina was the perfect choice for our photography! I was worried about being photographed professionally, but Gina put us right at ease and worked quickly and efficiently during the portrait session so we could get back to partying with our guests.

I was looking for someone who could capture the candid, real moments of the event in a beautiful and timeless way. Gina did just that. Our photos turned out wonderfully. I’m impressed she was able to get so many beautiful shots, even though we had a tight timeline and had to rush her at different points.

Her work speaks for itself, but her professionalism and lovely personality made the experience so positive for us. She was great at communicating in the weeks leading up to and after the wedding, and was easy to work with during the event. She’s kind, easy-going, and a pro at giving gentle direction when needed. She even stayed a few minutes later than we had scheduled to make sure we got all the shots we wanted before she left.

I hope I can hire her again for future photography shoots!

Thank you, Gina!”
