I work to develop my sensitivity to the world through my photography. You and I have a lot in common, we are sentient beings to the world around us. I am looking for something bigger and more beautiful every day of my life. That's why you'll find me more often on a plane, a train rather than at home.

MY HUSBAND AND I FOUND GABRIELLA ONLINE AND WE’RE INSTANTLY IMPRESSED WITH HER WORK. WE CORRESPONDED WITH GABRIELLA FROM THE UNITED STATES AND MET WITH HER WHEN WE ARRIVED IN FRANCE.
SHE MADE US FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE WHICH LED TO SOME GORGEOUS PHOTOS THAT I DON’T THINK WE WOULD HAVE HAD OTHERWISE. GABRIELLA IS EXTREMELY TALENTED, EASY TO WORK WITH, AND PROFESSIONAL. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER FOR ANY PHOTOGRAPHS! I JUST WISH SHE LIVED CLOSER SO WE COULD WORK WITH HER MORE FREQUENTLY.

I can't say how grateful we were with Gabriella's services. My husband and I get married in italy. She is kind and always extremely professional. We felt at ease having her around as she guides us during the photography and captures our intimate moments. Beyond being a calm person and amazing photographer, she knows what she is talking about and when she doesn’t she is honest. She always gives us solutions to fix our issues with planning. Finding good vendors was a hard task she makes easy. The photos were just gorgeous, and our glass box is an enchantment, I can’t say how emotional I am when looking at it!
