LESLIE & KYLE'S KIND WORDS
Gina is a talented, kind-hearted photographer. We are so thankful we found her!
We were drawn to Gina's photography, with its soft, luminous, light & airy finish, her valued support, service, professionalism, communication, genuine kindness, talent and unique style reaffirmed that we made the right choice.
Gina helped us plan our wedding, proposing suppliers and ideas for styling. On our wedding day Gina acted as a calm, organized wedding planner by proposing successful solutions when we had some unexpected rainy weather! We are so thankful for Gina and would highly recommend her.
I flew out to Pisa two days before Leslie & Kyle's wedding and we had agreed to meet for Coffee in Florence at a dear little cafe by the river Arno, named Cafe Rivarno, before driving to their Villa to discuss their day in more detail.
Prior to travelling to Italy, I researched the area and found a delightful Monastery named Pieve San Pietro di Romena near Stia and prosposed that I capture them in front of it in soft evening light prior to their wedding day. They loved the idea and it was my gift to them.
Their timetable was full as they were creating their wedding day themselves so had much to do, but we were able to spend 20 minutes or so at the Monastery. When we arrived the Sun was fast approaching sunset so we had only a short window of time to with with. Leslie & Kyle were an absolute joy and this session helped them to be themselves in front of the camera on their wedding day.
