Hey thank you so much for stepping into my wedding world and honoring space for love during these truly crazy times.
I’m a native New Yorker born and raised on the upper west side. My passion for photography started as a teenager with an obsession for light and shadows, seeing things no one else does, like how a tree can become a painting on the side of a wall.
Photography has taken me on many beautiful twists and turns. In my formative years I focused primarily on fine art portraits and photojournalism. Shooting social justice movements and black and white portraiture. About 5 years ago I ended up landing a job shooting elopements full time. As many of you know the wedding industry can be really white washed and not artistic or inclusive. Its been so amazing to be a part of a new genera of work that’s far more creative and outside the standard box. Now nearly 400 weddings later I’m still really excited about what I do. I love the ethereal and romantic nature of weddings. I only spend a day with couples, but capture so much more than that. It’s truly a unique and beautiful experience.
My photography style can be described as artistic with a focus on photojournalism. I love using the natural surroundings to create a real feeling for couples and using street art and graffiti walls as backdrops. NYC is such a colorful and beautiful city to make photos in. I also offer 35mm analog film photography as well. West Village Film Wedding Shoot.
In addition to photography I attend NYU graduate school for mental health counseling. I think my love of people and photography are equal and in the end I hope to work in both fields.
I currently live on the upper west side with my husband Ralph and my 2 year old daughter Luchiana Aruna. We love thrift shopping and talking about the world, sustainability, and new tech innovations. I look forward to talking more. G
“Gianna shot our COVID wedding in Brooklyn Bridge Park. She was easy to work with. She is a true artist. The photos look like works of art not cheesy staged wedding photos. We loved Gianna and would recommend her to everyone.” -ANNIE
