Hello Kindred Spirit,
I believe you and I have a lot in common. We are adventurers, explorers, and seekers. We're looking for something bigger, and more beautiful than we've ever known before.
I'm dedicated to my art, but I value your experience above all. I look forward to being your guide, as we join together to create timeless, artistic heirlooms for you and the people you love.
WHY AM I DOING WHAT I DO ?
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 share this passion for travelling. I had the pleasure of photographing in Milan; at Lake Como, Dubai, Thailand, Los Angeles, San Fransisco, Croatia, Paris, Barcelona. I am an adventurer in the soul looking for the transcendent and beauty.
I pay particular attention to portraying only honest and candid moments. Even when I will help you to pose.
That's why I'll find the best light while you're on your first look. I will take authentic photographs.
As I aim for perfection and Beauty, Every detail matters, so I'll photograph each of your wedding details in a way to tell a story.

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!
