Gabrielle is fantastic! We did a shoot with her to celebrate our five year wedding anniversary and the photos are breathtaking. When we got married we would have loved to have our wedding on the edge of a cliff or deep in the woods or something, but for a number of reasons we weren’t able to do that. Gabrielle gave us that experience (and it’s just as special since it was just the two of us). She did a great job of capturing who we are and finding beautiful locations for us to explore, and now we have all of these gorgeous photos to remember it by. I'm so excited to have these photos!

Gabrielle is so kind, professional, fun, and amazing at her job. We were nervous for engagement photos, but the second we started working with Gabrielle, those nerves fell away and our inner models stepped out. Gabrielle is so easy to work with and her work is something we will reflect on for years to come to remember our special time. 100% recommend this gem of a photographer!

Gabrielle is an incredible photographer. She is the kindest soul and the easiest person to work with. Both my husband and I can be pretty awkward in photos and somehow she took the most breathtaking amazing pics of us. She made us feel so comfortable, it was as if she had been one of our friends for years.

When I saw the pictures she took of our wedding, I realized she did not just capture the scenery and the motions of the day, but rather, she captured the essence of our wedding, our emotions in each moment, and she captured our love story as if she had known us our whole relationship.

Did I mention she was easy to work with? I had a traditional wedding planned back our home area of VA but we moved to Washington and I canceled that wedding. She came out to the PNW and hiked a total of 8 miles after waking up at 3am to capture it all with us! WHAT A CHAMP.

Gabrielle shot my engagement photos and she is wonderful! She was very professional, laid back, and easy to coordinate with. We did an outdoor shoot and it was freezing cold. I was nervous about how the temperature was going to affect photos in terms of our expressions, teeth chattering, etc, in addition, I’ve never felt very photogenic so I only expected to like a couple of photos but I loved them all so much. I remember feeling awkward (don’t get professional photos taken often) and so cold but you can’t tell at all. Her eye and talent is pure magic!

I did a mini shoot with Gabrielle and in 30-45 minutes I couldn’t believe how many amazing shots she got! She showed me an unedited shot she got while we were still shooting and I was blown away on just how amazing she captured light. I’m not great at posing so I loved how she made me feel comfortable and told me what to do yet the pics didn’t look posed and looked so natural! Honestly I can’t wait till summer to plan another shoot!

My husband and I have worked with Gabrielle on several shoots including an engagement shoot, a newlywed shoot, and most recently a trip to a Christmas tree farm. She takes a challenging day, such as when there was total fog during our engagement session and created pictures that were everything I ever wanted and more. I couldn't recommend her enough. If you want special photographs that capture the extraordinary, or even the ordinary, moments in your life she's the photographer for you.

Gabrielle's recently photographed our wedding and captured my vision plus more. She took my few ideas and ran with them. I cannot say enough good about Gabrielle's work. Not only did she bring me to tears with her photos, she brought me back in time and I could feel the moment all over again.

Her organization and efficiency was not only impressive, but a huge relief. Specific photos, moments to capture, family member names, time frames, addresses, etc, were all discussed and clarified prior to the Big Day. I never had to worry if a moment was missed. For a bride, not having to think about one less thing is worth more than I anticipated and her punctuality and thoroughness relieved so much stress from me.

Getting back to our photos, I CANNOT stop looking through them. They are beyond my expectations and more beautiful than I could've thought up. Gabrielle brought my dream to life and these photos, that will someday be surrounded by our grandchildren's school portraits, will bring me back to one of the best and most magical days of my life.

"Gabrielle shot both our engagement and wedding photos, and it was such a wonderful experience! She is great to work with and has such talent, giving us the space to be natural in our pictures and still capturing our personalities. Her artistic style shone through the pictures, and we have gotten so many compliments from friends and family! I absolutely loved the experience of working with her and love the pictures that we got as well! Thank you so much, Gabrielle!!!"

She is insanely talented with a keen eye for finding the unique moments throughout your special day. I will cherish all of these photos for the rest of my life. Each one captured our love and the beauty of our friends and family! It was an awesome day that will live in on in our photos!

I highly recommend her for any moment you want to remember. Thank you, Gabby!
