NYC Elopement and Intimate Wedding Photographer

Meet Gianna

New York Elopement and Intimate Wedding Photographer

I want to comment briefly about the current situation and say I can’t stress how empathetic I am right now to couples! I know this isn’t an easy time, but a lot is possible when it comes to celebrating your love, including small socially distant elopements in back yards, rooftops, or held on off-peak hours around the city. With care and attention, we can still connect in new ways that allow us to feel alive & I am down to do that with you ♥

My work and vibe is artistic and edgy and definitely outside the typical wedding photography box. Before getting into wedding and elopement photography I spent over 10 years as a portrait and photojournalistic photographer and social activist. In that time period, I curated a number of gallery openings and fundraisers for local homeless shelters and participated a some amazing group shows. I value diversity deeply! I am a Puerto Rican Italian Jew and native New Yorker, my background has definitely taught me tolerance and acceptance for all walks of life. I value keeping it real in both my work and life. No heavy retouching or phony posing during my shoots. I aim to create spaces for people to be who they are and take photos that capture genuine and authentic energy. In addition to weddings and elopements, I also attend NYU graduate school for mental health counseling and have a 16-month-old baby girl.  Wanna know more about booking a shoot check the  FAQ Section and please be sure to read what clients say, check me out here.

  • "I cannot speak any more highly of my elopement photographer, Gianna. Weeks before my big day, she contacted me to get my ideas and a feel for my photography style. My photos looked straight out of a magazine! The lighting, the setting/backgrounds (Central Park NYC) and poses were all absolutely perfect. She was very prepared and straight to the point making sure everyone (my family who attended) were all prepared so that no time would be wasted and we could get the most out of our session. She promptly delivered the photos to us right at 48 hours just as promised and I’ve still been looking through them days later just as I’m sure I will be years from now, she helped make my wedding day exactly what I envisioned, and then some!!"

  • "We recently booked Gianna for our elopement photography in Central Park in December 2017 (yes it was absolutely freezing). Where do I begin.. Gianna is amazing!! From the very first discussion she made me very at ease (I live in Australia and booked Gianna purely from internet correspondence) and understood exactly what kind of photos I was after. Gianna is very relaxed and easy going but very professional at the same time! Myself and my husband don't like having our photos taken and Gianna made us feel very comfortable during the photo shoot. She even emailed me the week before with tips for staying warm during our freezing wedding! The photos captured exactly what we wanted for our NYC wedding and I would highly recommend Gianna!"

  • “What an amazing day! Our wedding photography without a doubt being the highlight from our wedding day. Gianna’s local knowledge of New York City is outstanding. She took us to amazing locations that you wouldn’t even know existed and captured the absolute best of us. She was professional, yet felt like a friend you’d had for years. We miss Gianna and the brightness she brought to our day. I’d confidently recommend Gianna every single time.”
    Elizabeth & Andrew
  • "Gianna was exceptional throughout the whole experience of our special day. We came from the UK and heavily relied on Gianna‘s expertise and knowledge on the area to create the best photos. We were not disappointed and were blown away when we received the photos back as they were so natural, beautiful and perfectly captured the day. I felt like I had known Gianna for years and I had only just met her. She made us feel at ease, let us be creative with the shots and we have had so many compliments on how lovely the photos are. I only wish she lived in the UK so she could continue to capture special moments in our family. I cannot thank Gianna enough for the special memories captured, that we can look back on for the rest of our life."
    Emma & Rob
  • "WE LOVE GIANNA! We flew in from Texas to New York for our destination wedding and could not be more pleased with how talented and professional Gianna was throughout the entire process. We wed in Central Park and Gianna knew the best spots for our fairy tale moment. We loved working with her so much, we’re going to hire her again for our 1st Anniversary celebration!"
    Stacy & Kevin
  • "Our small Central Park wedding was the most memorable day of our lives and our photographer Gianna was such a great person to work with and the perfect person to capture it all. She made it so personal for us from beginning of our big day to the end. She completely got the shots we were envisioning and more. She has such an amazing eye and caught shots that are so edgy and fun. Our photo shoot was so hectic with so many unexpected things but she made it her priority to get things on track for us and got so many amazing pictures through NYC. She had our pictures ready so quickly and they were beyond fantastic. We can never thank her enough for catching our big day in such a cool way and giving us memories we will always have thanks to her amazing photography skills. She truly has a gift!"

  • "Gianna is talented and amazing to work with. My wedding photos turned out incredible! We received so many compliments on how well Gianna captured our love. She is exactly what I wanted in a photographer, above and beyond our highest expectations. I would highly recommend her services to anyone."
    Shayna & Andre
  • "When it came time to deciding on a wedding photographer for our wedding day, we knew we wanted someone who could think "outside the box" and capture our special day with extra flair. Gianna was able to do that and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our photos. Her personality and keen eye made it so fun and easy to work with her. I can’t recommend her enough!"
    Shetal & Vittorio
  • "Gianna was such an amazing part of our wedding. She was so flexible, accommodating, and friendly. Everyone loved her work. She first shot an engagement shoot with us and after that we knew we wanted her for the wedding. Those photos were a hit and everyone wanted to know who shot us. She was attentive when taking shots guiding us to get the most flattering ones and patient when we needed breaks or weren’t feeling the shots. She’s super down to earth and intuitive. We have her bookmarked for any future events and gave her info out to guests as well."
    Mischa & Samir
  • "Gianna corresponded well with us before the wedding and we felt she had great control. She met us promptly as specified and carried out an amazing job for us. Very easy going which made us relaxed so we could have fun at the shoot. We love the final results, and can absolutely recommend Gianna if you are looking for a wedding photographer. Thank you Gianna for the photos that are great memories from our special day."
    Hilde & Mathias
  • "So when you elope from Tennessee to have your wedding in NYC you want the best of everything; the best location, the ceremony, and the best photographer, and that is what we had! Gianna made our wedding a true fairytale! Gianna brought the city to us! Our photos were so unique and creative. We had so much fun traveling around the city that she knows so well. She captured the brilliance and magic of her New York and shared it with us, making our day so very special. The photos bring back the feel of day to us each time we see them."
    Lucy & Gary
  • "Gianna and her second shooter did the wedding photography for our small wedding and it was AMAZING!! They are truly artists who were able to capture fantastic pictures of our event. They also brought a beautiful energy to their work, which helped people feel very comfortable with them. My family and friends commented on how they were such a pleasure to work with. From beginning to end, Gianna was easy to communicate with and was extremely helpful in planning out how to best capture pictures in a way that worked for our event. After the wedding, she had the links to our pictures ready extremely quickly and we could not have been happier with them! I am so glad that we found someone who had the artistic eye to get gorgeous shots that were truly special."
    Michelle & Juan
  • "Gianna was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her passion, charisma, and energy really shines in her elopement photography. Her attention to detail and professionalism really blew us away. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our New York City wedding. Gianna has a strong knowledge of the city and knew all of the best places to take stunning photos. Our family and friends could not get over how well our photos turned out and thought they should be featured in magazines! We will always have such vivid memories from our special day whenever we look at Gianna's photos. Thank you for everything Gianna!"
