THE SKINNY: Gloria is AWESOME! She is truly a pleasure to work with. Her demeanor adds a bit of calmness to the chaos that is all things wedding. Gloria manages to be laid-back and easy going without sacrificing one bit of professionalism. Her work is fantastic. Her turn around time is amazing. She is one of the coolest photographers you will meet. She is one the coolest PEOPLE you will meet. If you need to know more, then keep reading, but seriously, that about sums it up. MORE THAN THE SKINNY: I recently planned a wedding for my friends. They told me that they just wanted to show up at an awesome party (theirs) and get married. So I planned and coordinated almost EVERYTHING. I am not a professional wedding planner, so in the beginning, I didn't have many resources. Hiring a photographer was daunting, because the cost of wedding photography seems to be enormous and we were working with a really tight budget. Add to that the fact that I work in the Photo industry, and a big part of my job is identifying good photography using a slightly more trained eye. So I was ULTRA picky about who to present to my friends as an option. Working in the industry means that I have a ton of photographers at my disposal, HOWEVER, all of my photog buddies were charging up the wazoo and didn't fit my friends' budget. I found Gloria after about 3 weeks of hunting. Her work and style easily fit in with that of the photographers that I liked that were charging a ton of money. In other words, we were getting a great deal without sacrificing any bit of quality. First impression when I met her: 'Wow! This lady is REALLY cool." My friends LOVED her the first time they met her too They were even more confident in our choice to work with Gloria after their engagement session. Apparently, they had a blast that day! Gloria shot them in their loft, photographing them, their home and their dogs beautifully. Then she found a really cool location near their house and got some amazing shots of them "playing" there. About a week after their session, she sent them a DVD of edited photos, which we played on a large flat screen HDTV at the wedding during the cocktail hour. Their guests loved it! On the wedding day, I was frazzled and crazed thanks to good ol' Murphy's Law. The ONE aspect of the wedding that I never had to triage, extinguish or modify was the photography. Gloria and Josh (our second shooter) were completely self contained and professional. I never had to find them, because they were ever present (without being intrusive) and I didn't have to give them any instruction. In fact, I gave Gloria a sorry excuse of a shot list, and she did way better on her own capturing everything from emotions to the actual little elemental details like the table numbers. She even convinced a group of middle aged guys in Speedos to take a picture with the bride! Hilarious! Together Gloria and Josh caught so many great moments, and did a beautiful job. In conclusion, GLORIA ROCKS!

*Great Photographer* When my first photographer bailout on our contract I was so dissappointed and worried that I might not have time to find another good photographer. There was only less than a month for my wedding. Finally, our friend mentioned about Gloria. So, I gave her a call and she call me back right away. We quickly set up date to meet up and from then on she took care of everything. I was relieved by the quick responsed I got from her. Her work was great and the shots turn out beatifully. We got married in San Jose Cathedral of Basilica and that church was huge. Gloria manage to go up and down to the balcony to captured our wedding. We only hire one photographer and we had most of the shots of everyone. That's amazing! she really worked so hard =) We are happy that we found her and she saved our wedding sweet thanks Gloria!

I found Gloria through Project Wedding and all the reviews of her and her work are spot on. I was married on March 14th 2009 and I had all of my photos within a month.... her turn around time is incredible. I am IN LOVE with all of my photos, she truly captured every moment. Her photography was everything I wanted and more, it was the most amazing day of my life and I have the photos to prove it. All my friends and family keep saying that my photos are magazine worthy and that they haven't seen better work by a wedding photographer before. Gloria was the BEST decision I made for my wedding. Gloria is not just an amazing photographer she is an amazing person and she is well on her way to becoming a top photographer. In my eyes she already is. P.S. If you want a second shooter, request Josh, he is amazing as well! I had him in the room with the groom and 7 groomsmen while they were "getting ready" and he took some amazing shots...as well as pinning on all their boutonnieres because they didn't know how to do it. He went above and beyond. Gloria and Josh both went above and beyond and their work shows it.

Wow, Gloria is one of the first and best decisions for our wedding thus far. We were confident in her work and have no doubt in our minds that she will do an outstanding job with our wedding. We researched different photographers and just didn't have the confidence in them until we saw Gloria's work. So far Gloria took our engagement pictures, and while we were almost certain that the pictures turned out awkward and boring, her talent for photography captured exactly what we wanted our pictures to portray. I totally agree with the previous posts about Gloria. Her demeanor really makes you feel at ease during the engagement photos...such an awkward moment. All in all? She rocks and you won't regret her as your photographer.

I found Gloria on Project Wedding. My fiance liked her style out of the 15-20 other photographers that I sent him. The other plus was that she was within our budget. She was totally flexible with our timing and we were able to book her for our Sunday wedding in September. This week, we got our photos and CD. Our photos were beautiful and she did a great job capturing all the emotions throughout the day. I received tons of compliments from family and friends, and I love that there is an online gallery to share.

Thank God for craigslist! We first met Gloria when we ran across her ad in craigslist offering a free engagement photo session to build out her budding wedding portfolio. We already had hired a photographer for our big day, but wanted to get more practice taking portraits because we are awfully un-photogenic. Our engagement session with Gloria was fantastic - we took photos all over the Bay Area in a 3-hour marathon session, from the Allied Arts Guild, to Stanford campus, to Keplers bookstore, and to our old high school. That evening, Gloria already had teasers for us, and in a weeks time, had finished editing all the photos from our session - we couldnt be more pleased! Gloria has a gift for capturing the emotion of human interaction and details of everyday objects - her photos are modern, alive, cutting edge. Plus, Gloria is just COOL - a great person to hang out with, make jokes with, have fun with. When she offered to act a second shooter for our wedding for an incredible price, we checked it over with our primary photographer, Kerry Rodgers (FANTASTIC photographer) who was very accommodating about it. Because of Glorias great price as a second shooter, we were able to capture the early hours before the ceremony getting ready at home, the cocktail hour that we completely missed, and the late hours of the evening, dancing away to 80s tunes, which otherwise would not have fit in our budget at our experienced primary photogs rates OR our schedule of portraits. Since Glorias style is very different from Kerrys, we had the opportunity to see our event through two different sets of very sharp eyes, and loved the results. Gloria had our photos ready for us within a week, which was fantastic because I was dyyying to see them! We couldnt be more pleased with her work and recommend her highly to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, especially if you are working on a tight budget. For being such a natural talent and true professional, her prices cant be beat!

To be very, very honest, Gloria was a biggest investment for our wedding. It was super small, about six people, plus us, plus Gloria, convening at SF City Hall. We could have been more overjoyed with our choice, especially as the day played out. Even though we (bride & groom) were late, even though we didn't even say hi to her when we ran into City Hall sans marriage license, even though we were all over the place and frozen in place at the same time, Gloria took everything in stride, walked with us, calmly spoke to us, took pictures as we waited, signed documents and sat nervously looking at each other. She documented even step of our wedding from my mother adjusting my necklace, to me checking if the rings were still in the ring box. She then took candid pictures throughout our ceremony, took posed pictures in front of the rotunda with family, and then took what seems like a million beautiful shots of just the two of us all over City Hall. On top of that, she carted us over to Golden Gate Park and treked all over with us, took multiple set ups, suggested poses, and basically tried to make a incredibly unphotogenic couple look amazing on their wedding day. Gloria is so friendly, comfortable and amazing while photographing. She made us feel relaxed and happy on one of the most nerve-wracking days of our lives, and thought of an amazing added location for us in Golden Gate Park to shoot that turned out so wonderfully. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!

Hello from the lone star state! How are you? Gloria it's been almost three months now since our wedding. Our friends and family are still talking about it. They aren't talking about the food at the reception nor the San Francisco sites but all they can talk about is you. Your awesome personality and beautiful pictures made our big day the best it could ever be. We can't help but look at our pictures all the time. We have received so many compliments on your photographs. For example, I was just at a friends bachelorette party last weekend. At dinner one of my friends who was at my wedding leaned over the dinner table and said to me, "Your wedding pictures are beautiful". When we think about the wonderful time we had all because of you we can't help but smile and say it was all thanks to Gloria. Thank you!!! Your biggest fans, Marc and Lorraine Martinez
