Gina photographed our wedding and our engagement session. We LOVED working with her! When I first spoke with Gina about hiring her as our photographer, she was completely open and honest, answering all of my questions and explaining her philosophy and style. She really likes to get to know all of her clients, so she spent time chatting, asking questions, and making sure she was the best fit as a photographer for me and my husband. When it came time to schedule our engagement photos, Gina was flexible with scheduling and selected a beautiful outdoor setting for our shoot. The session was laid back, fun, and natural, and we loved getting to know our photographer before the wedding. The photos were gorgeous! In the months leading up to our wedding, Gina was super responsive to emails or calls and always willing to provide helpful suggestions.

On our wedding day, Gina arrived early to make sure she got shots of all the details (dress, shoes, jewelry, flowers) and greeted me with a big hug when I arrived. That might not sound like a big deal, but with all the adrenaline and wedding day nerves, having a calming presence around is a BIG DEAL! Gina made the entire process of wedding photos so painless that at times I forgot that she was taking photos! She set up a beautiful "First Look" for my me and my husband. It was so nice to have this private time together before the wedding, all while Gina was off in the distance taking great photos. Throughout the entire wedding day Gina was accommodating and rolled with the punches when our timeline of events changed, making sure she didn't miss anything! The next day, Gina posted a "Sneak Peak" of some of our photos on her website so that they'd be available to our friends and family. The photos are stunning, and we can't wait to see the rest! Gina really went above and beyond all of our expectations for a wedding photographer and she is simply a lovely person :) We couldn't have been happier!

LOOK NO FURTHER, Gina is the best wedding photographer in the Bay Area PERIOD.
Planning a wedding is obviously very stressful, and for some reason, committing to a photographer was the most difficult process for me out of the whole wedding. I knew that the photos of the best day of our lives... our wedding day... was a one time thing, that had to be captured in my vision. If the photos don't turn out, I would be devastated. Therefor, in my quest for a photographer I looked at every website and looked into all referrals, but every photographer I looked into had something that I didn't like.... at least one picture that made me question their taste and style of photography. After nearly 8 months of searching, I found Gina! I knew from the instant I saw her website that SHE WAS THE PHOTOGRAPHER FOR ME, and it made the long search well worth the wait.
Her vision is so unique, creative and timeless. She made us feel sexy, confident and beautiful while photographing us, and captured our love so perfectly. It felt amazing to see our first photo as a married couple, and know that that very image was everything I wanted. And now, nearly a month after our wedding, the photos keep pouring in... and with every picture I see, I am overwhelmed with the beauty of our day.
BOTTOM LINE...the photos from your wedding cannot be undone, it is a one time deal, so choose wisely. Hire Gina Peterson and have zero regrets, and all the images you dream of will become a reality. Best decision I made... besides saying "I Do" of course ;)

Gina recommends doing engagement photos prior to the wedding. I originally wanted to skip the engagement photos, but am so glad this was discouraged! Don't skip the engagement photos! In getting to know Gina before the wedding, my now-husband and I were comfortable both with her, and in front of the camera. Wedding days can be hectic, but feeling at ease with Gina and confident that she would take amazing photographs gave me one less thing to stress about! Gina is a great listener, and was really able to get a feel for the kind of photographs I was hoping for . She makes an effort to get to know the bride so that she can deliver a high quality array of photographs specific to the bride's style. I cannot recommend Gina Petersen Photography highly enough!

It all started when I saw Gina's pictures on her website (through a friend on Facebook). It was love at first sight. We called her up and she was available! After deciding to do engagement photos and book Gina for the wedding, we were immediatley excited!

Gina was wonderful throughout our entire wedding experience; extremely helpful, creative, and very organized. She made us both feel comfortable and truly valued our opinion, something that means a lot during a wedding.

We were so happy with the finished product and can't wait to work with Gina again!

I had originally signed up with another local photographer for our wedding.... And really wasn't happy with engagement shoot photos, they were harsh lighting. 2 weeks before wedding I found Gina's website and feel in love with her photos. After one conversation and the LUCK that she had our wedding day open, I immediately switched to Gina, and thank god we did! Our pictures are fabulous, and really capture the feel of our wedding. Gina is energetic and very responsive. She is the best at what she does and we couldn't be happier with our wedding photos!

Gina was absolutely phenomenal. She listened to all of my requests and worked with what we needed. My myself and my now husband get a little camera shy, but Gina made us feel relaxed and comfortable. She has a wonderful eye for light and setting. Truly a very talented photographer, and the kind of person that you want at your wedding and part of all those intimate and personal moments. I can't say enough good things! Thank you, Gina!

I would like to start out by saying that when it comes to photographers Gina Petersen is the whole package! Not only does she have an amazing eye for capturing those special moments but she genuinely loves photography and people. She truly enjoys what she does and it shows in her detailed and perfected pictures. Gina seems to always be at the forefront of new photography styles, her pictures are modern but still very classic. She is highly organized, detail oriented, and she is quick to respond to emails and calls.

I had the pleasure of working with Gina for my senior pictures (some 8 years ago), when she was starting to expand and build on her love of photography, and this past year my husband and I where honored to have Gina photograph our wedding. It was awesome to have a photographer whom I knew and knew me there capturing memories on that special day. I feel so blessed to have had Gina as our photographer. She is professional, fun, and always energetic! She made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable during the pictures and throughout the day. I could not be happier with our wedding photos and the service we have received from Gina! I am looking forward to working with her for years to come for special events and family portraits!
