Wedding & Couple
pricing guide 2019
I am so happy that you are here in this little space. You are in an absolutely thrilling time of your life, and I would love to share in that excitement with you. So, let’s dive deep and be real with each other. Have some coffee or tea (or wine, beer, or whisky) and take time to look through this guide together. I want to start with an intro to myself and my business so that we can know each other a little better. I hope it inspires you to write me back and tell me all about yourselves individually, as a couple, your love story, and excitedly tell me all of your wedding plans so far.
My name is Gabrielle, and I live in Harrisonburg, Virginia - on the edge of the Shenandoah River and Skyline Drive. While White Sails is my business, it’s also my passion. I am a romantic to my core. I find love, adventure, and romance in everything. In the fog, the wind, the rain, the sun glowing on dewy grass, running through fields, climbing trees. I strive to find beauty in the every day, and when it comes to a couple in love, it’s not hard to find. I love in-between moments in black and white, prints that look like film, kisses that are a little out of focus, and hands holding each other tight.
I married the love of my life, Johnny, and he has helped me tremendously me on this journey with White Sails.
We love cooking together, traveling, tea, and not the same music. We will race across the yard.
Gabrielle always wins. We are always up for hiking in the rain, or waking up at sunrise. We love watching murder mysteries, and trying to guess whodunnit the whole entire time.
Our wedding reception was outside, in November, and we drank and danced to stay warm. We love each other to the moon and back. We are working on making every country our home away from home. We love the water - in lake, river, or ocean form.
My style is distinct, and I truly believe that photography is an incredibly important part of any wedding day. Because of this, I want to work with couples who feel connected to my work, and who I can call friends by the end of the day. We’ll be working together, not only on your wedding day, but leading up to and after the day has ended. So, earlier, when I said to send me an email all about yourselves, your love, and your day, I truly meant it.
I want to capture who you are, to your core, as a couple, and create incredible art that will truly capture the best days of your lives.
My style is about connection. Connection between husband and wife, between parents and children, between those in front of the camera and the one behind. I get in close and try my absolute best to capture the way things felt in the short time we are together. It is a mixture of journalistic, lifestyle approach as well as surreal fine-art. I ask you to interact with each other and let things be the way they are - a little wild, emotional, full of little moments, and incredibly beautiful.
If you’d like to tell me more about yourselves and what you envision for your wedding day, please send me all the details! I’m a sucker for every love story.
I wish you the best of luck on this exciting journey ahead!
