Philadelphia-based photographer Gino Guarnere has become a rising force in the local photography industry. A sought-after action sports shooter, his talent behind the lens has garnered him national photography titles in 2009 in portrait photojournalism, and his fresh approach to the wedding photography business has already earned him praise among his peers and his clients alike.

Gino was trained as a musician, and as such, spent a lot of his time at weddings behind the piano before he started spending all his time behind the camera. He's become known for performing for the guests both as a vocalist and as a piano player and often surprises his bride and groom by ending up on stage with the band.

Photojournalistic in approach, but with a keen sense of perspective as well as a quick ability to get all the traditional shots in with time to spare, Gino Guarnere Photography is happy to be considered for your event. Just give him a call and see what his studio has to offer! Read less

Gino was a blast to work with and our pictures are incredible!!! He has a very relaxed style and makes you and your significant other very comfortable. He even brings along a lighting specialist- which really made our colors pop! I would highly recommend him for a more modern take on wedding photography. His price was competitive and fair.

Having Gino take pictures for our wedding day was like having a friend or family member take them. Gino, along with his staff are the perfect people to take care of your picture needs. Where I've always imagined the process of taking pictures long and grueling, Gino makes it fund and entertaining - effortless in fact. He's extremely personable and very professional. Gino was also very open to our picture suggestions and very much tries his best to create the best from our ideas. He had great ideas of his own and can take any scene and make it magical. Again - a very fun experience and that's Gino a truly fun guy himself.

Gino provided excellent and professional photography service for our wedding. His pictures are awesome, friends and family have commented that our pictures look like they are straight out of a wedding magazine. I was thrilled! Better yet, was his promptness in getting us our pictures. I had set my expectations at viewing my pictures not until at least we came back from our honeymoon, but Gino had us samples in a day and I was viewing all my pictures with in a week. This made a happy bride! I would definitely recommend Gino for your event.

Gino was an amazing photographer to work with from the first phone call to the last email. Easy to get in touch with, phone, text and email, and always had a quick response which was nice when trying to coordinate times between different vendors. Gino sat down with us and went over all of options, made suggestions and listened to our wants. On the day of we couldn't have enjoyed taking pictures more, Gino kept us on schedule, got all of our shots, and kept us laughing and having fun! Even our bridal party was commenting on how laid back and fun the picture process was! We received a link to our proofing site within 2 weeks of our wedding, (super fast for wedding pictures.) The pictures look amazing! Beautiful backgrounds, lighting, black and white, etc. We will definitely be working with Gino again and are looking forward to it!

Gino is fantastic! He has deep experience with wedding photos. He knew just the types of shots to suggest, met with me ahead of time to make sure he understood any special requests, and is extremely pleasurable to work with! His personality immediately puts people at ease and you end up with photos where everyone looks great. Gino also has an ability to capture a poignant moment, you get the emotion along with the photograph. I would use Gino for any event, he's extremely professional and I couldn't have been happier!

We worked with Gino on three separate occasions. Each time was an adventure. He and his team are great to work with and make you feel very comfortable.

By far, he is one of the more technically artistic photographers. We would certainly use him again.

Gino was the photographer we choose for our engagement session and our wedding on October 20, 2012 at the Downingtown County Club in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. Besides his amazing ability to take picture perfect photos, Gino is full of energy and works hard to makes sure everyone is having fun. Gino made sure that every moment of our wedding day was captured. In the end, all you have are the photos to remember your wedding day, and Gino makes sure that those photos are exactly what you want to have forever!

A year before our wedding we evaluated several photography options, and Gino's work stood out from all others. His work is amazing, and he has a great balance between being fun and personable while still completely professional. He was so easy to get in touch with throughout the whole process, which is not always common among wedding vendors. His pricing options gave us the most bang for our buck, and we loved having the engagement photography session included. During the actual wedding day, Gino was very flexible and traveled to whatever locations we requested. He brought along an assistant, Chrissie, who was so helpful and between the two of them they got all the shots we wanted! Gino was able to keep the whole bridal party controlled enough to get great photos in a short amount of time, without being pushy or rude. Overall, Gino was efficient and an extremely talented photographer who made our wedding day so memorable. We highly recommend Gino Guarnere Photography!

Gino and his team were a pleasure to work with from the beginning! And they are all super nice, making everyone feel comfortable during shoots. Our engagement session and wedding photos turned out great. It's obvious Gino loves photography, and the fact that he brings an assistant really makes a difference with lighting, etc.

I would not hesitate to recommend Gino to be your wedding or special event photographer! If you are looking for a fun, professional, great energy guy with an amazing talent look no further.

WOW! Amazing! Beautiful! Those are the words I would use to describe the images Gino captured for my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding. Gino’s photography is gorgeous and his professionalism is unequaled. The hours and the work that Gino put into our event can barely be described. Our wedding celebration was a “destination wedding” with the ceremony, wedding party/family pictures and the reception being held at 3 different venues over a 15 hour period.

The bride and groom had a morning beach wedding, afternoon photos in a historic district and an evening reception at a local winery. Gino and his assistant, Michael, were there for every moment. They arrived early to give plenty of time for the “before” pictures. After the ceremony and beach shots Gino & Michael accompanied the wedding party to Colonial Williamsburg where they took painstaking care making sure the bride & groom got the pictures they wanted. After a very brief afternoon break and almost 11 hours of taking pictures Gino and Michael arrived at the reception as fresh as if it was the first shots of the morning. They continued with their high energy capturing shots of the bride and groom in the vineyard and making sure every friend and relative was included in the large family shots.

I had the proofs within just a few days and throughout the weekend of the event and the entire planning process Gino was quick to respond by phone, text and email. Call Gino now you will not be disappointed!

Gino was extremrly helpful through the whole planning process, very accomodating to meet with me and explained me everything! I had no idea how to organize a wedding and he was helpful not only with the photography but also gave me other tips. He was able to work with my budget and helped me find the best service he offered within my budget. That day he was punctual, ready and very professional and friendly. The pictures were absolutely
Amazing!!! Last but not least he was very patient when I was nervous and flexible that day in order to make the best out of it. I'm more than grateful and satisfied!

My husband and I had our wedding at Downingtown Country Club on July 16, 2011. We found Gino Guarnere on Wedding Wire and checked out his website. I filled out his contact form on his website and received a response within a day. We also spoke on the phone extensively about our wedding and different package options. After a single phone conversation, I knew that Gino was the photographer for us! He is very enthusiastic and takes a lot of pride in his work. He was in touch along the way by making sure he confirmed all wedding details with us before the big day to make sure we would have all the photos that we wanted.

On the day of the wedding, Gino arrived along with his assistant, Nicole, who were both extremely professional. Gino arrived to our wedding venue early so that he wouldn't miss anything! He had a lot of energy and was great with our families. (Side note: if you have a young flower girl or ring bearer, Gino is your man! He is great with kids). Gino made sure to capture every special moment of our wedding and made sure he was in contact with us throughout the day to make sure he was getting the shots that we wanted.

After the wedding, we received lots of great feedback from our family about him. Our guests enjoyed his sense of humor and that he made them feel comfortable when he was taking their photo. As promised, we received an invitation to look at our photos online within a week of our wedding. My husband and I absolutely loved them! We had almost 600 photos of our beautiful day and Gino caught EVERYTHING. As part of our package, we were able to get all of our photos on disc; however his website also allows your family to purchase additional prints.

A photo truly is the best keepsake for any memorable day, and Gino was able to give us the best keepsakes we could have asked for.
