"When looking for wedding vendors–especially a photographer–you want the best. We knew that would be one of the most important decisions to make because pictures are a keepsake you have forever. Gina was more than the best, she was beyond anything we expected. When we met Gina, she was so down-to-earth, personable and her work showed her talent and creativity. She possessed all the skills we were looking for. When we shot our engagement session, Gina made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and the photos took our breath away. In fact, for our Save the Date, we had to do a collage of pictures because there were just too many good ones! Cut to our wedding day and Gina made sure our day went smoothly and perfectly. We weren't sure about doing a receiving line after our ceremony and Gina recommended not to do one. I am so glad we listened and trusted her and since we didn't do one, we had so much time after our ceremony to take pictures at the park (get those amazing shots) and we were able to arrive to our cocktail hour before our guests. Gina's assistants were equally amazing–was always there to fix the train of my dress, hold my bouquet or even my shoes! And her second shooter was always there to capture our moments and guide us to taking breathtaking shots. It was refreshing to have this team with us, making us laugh, smile and allowing us to be ourselves. We received our photos only a month later. Amazing, amazing amazing!!!! I can't stress anymore how talented Gina is and how our photos help us re-live our day. The pictures look like ads from a bridal magazine–we cannot stop looking at them, they are beautiful! We would work with Gina again in a heartbeat. We both feel like we made a friend for life in Gina and we are so grateful we had her there to celebrate and capture our day with us. Again, one of the best decisions we made in choosing Gina as our photographer, we couldn't be happier. :)"

"My husband and I got married only five weeks ago and we have already got back beautifully edited pictures and have been non-stopping looking at them and showing them off all weekend. Photography was THE most important vendor that I booked. I was not willing to settle because pictures are the way I will remember all the details of the day. Gina came HIGHLY recommended and she and her team did not disappoint. In addition to our wedding, she shot our engagement photos which we absolutely loved and got to use for so many events leading up to our wedding. It was a great way for us to get to know her and instantly feel at ease. Gina makes you feel so comfortable while taking pictures and clearly explains exactly what she wants you to do to get the best possible shot. She has such an amazing eye and sets up such gorgeous pictures in creative and interesting ways. I love that she captured even seemingly minor details, but things that I had worked hard on to make the day special. Gina and her team were committed to making our pictures beautiful and did everything possible to make it happen–including shuffling us through crowds of guests, dealing with traffic at the venue, and her second shooter even had part of his body in the pool to get shots of the guys. My husband and I both have very large families and Gina did a tremendous job of getting huge group shots done within minutes. I figured maybe one picture would have everyone smiling with eyes open, but there are literally dozens of just those shots and its hard to choose a favorite because they are all great! We were also under time pressure and Gina got all of our family shots, bridal party shots and our couple shots done in record time. It was one of my biggest concerns and she did a phenomenal job without leaving anything out. I am so thrilled with the results and am having a blast going through all the photos. Gina is the best of the best!!"

"Where do I even begin... Gina was fantastic! From the first time I spoke with her I felt comfortable that she understood exactly what we wanted. Getting in touch with her was a breeze. She always responded in a timely manner. When my husband and I met Gina, we just knew she was the one. She was so friendly and professional, never pushed any services, and we felt confident and excited to have her photograph our wedding. The day of our wedding Gina and her team showed up on time and were amazing the entire day! They were all so kind and extremely creative. They were a huge part of making our day so special. As far as the pictures go...... they were AMAZING!!! Absolutely stunning, creative, didn't miss a shot. You can tell from the photos that Gina and her team are enthusiastic about what they do. Nothing about the photos are ordinary. They made us look like movie stars :) honestly, I can't say enough about how happy we are about the whole experience."

"Our first meeting with Gina was like reuniting with a friend you haven't seen in years. Not only did she take all the pressure and stress out of choosing a photographer, but she was so much fun to talk with that we knew we would want her to spend the day of our wedding with us. Her work speaks for itself. Sitting in her studio, flipping through her albums; we only hoped that our pictures would come out as stunning as the ones we were looking at. Gina did not disappoint!! What she is able to do with her camera is like magic. She was able to make us feel calm and comfortable and she was able to capture the love and fun that was in the air that day. She works with kids like they were part of her own family. Do yourself a favor and talk with Gina, you will not regret it. She responds to questions and concerns quickly. The turnaround time on the finished pictures was amazing. And the rest of her team are just as much fun to work with as Gina herself. Thanks Gina, we wish there were more than five stars to give you."

"Planning a wedding is going to be one of the most stressful times in your life. Having the right vendors will make or break your experience. I completely lucked out with my wedding team, especially with my photographer, Gina Esposito. I was planning my Long Island wedding from Albany, which added a whole new level of stress not meeting most of my vendors in person. From the second I spoke with Gina on the phone, I knew I'd found the best person to capture the most important day of my life. Gina and her team captured moments in ways I never could imagine. Gina is the perfect mix of professionalism and fun. She's a little firecracker that gets all those pictures without breaking a sweat no matter how big or annoying your bridal party is! I felt like I had a friend working with me rather than a vendor working for me. She truly cares about her brides and it comes out in her art of photography. I am so thankful to have found her and get to enjoy these pictures the rest of my life."

"I cannot say enough about Gina Esposito and the work that she does. I met with Gina for the first time at a bridal expo that was held by our catering hall. In my opinion her work stood out from all of the other vendors at the expo. Aside from that I really felt that my personality clicked very well with Gina. I was looking for a young, energetic photographer, whose eye for taking pictures would blow me away. That is exactly what I got with Gina. I have been to many other weddings where the photographers are pulling the bride and groom away from the party throughout the whole night, and making cheesy annoying jokes to get everyone to laugh. That was def. not what I was all about. Gina was quick, to the point and sooo down-to-earth. She made me feel so at ease with the camera and I really felt like a model all day long! My photos are amazinggggg! I look at them almost every day. I couldn't be happier with them. I can honestly look back at them and remember how I felt throughout the whole day. Another thing that I adore about Gina is how quickly she responds. Anytime I ever needed to talk with her, I would get an email back from her that day. I am very impressed with her in that regard, taking into account how much business she is doing nowadays. Even now, after the wedding I had contacted her about putting together photo albums and I had a response within ten minutes. She loves what she does and it really shows in her work and her relationships with her clients. I have, and will continue to recommend her to any bride-to-be."

"Gina and her team are AMAZING!! Gina is an incredibly talented photographer and is professional and responsive; she is truly so incredible to work with. From our engagement pictures to our wedding photos, we couldn't be happier that we booked with her. Gina and her team are so creative and talented and will do anything for the perfect shot - including hanging from a cherry blossom tree so flowers would blow around during the shot :) We got married on May 14, got our pictures back within five weeks and were completely blown away–every photo is perfect. Gina really took the time to get to know us and she made us feel so relaxed at our wedding. We couldn't be happier that we booked with her. Thank you, Gina!!!"

"Gina's work is absolutely incredible. Hands down, the best money we spent on our wedding!! We loved the engagement shoot since we've only ever taken professional photos in other people's weddings and got a chance to learn how we'd work with Gina on the day of, but we were still blown away by the day-of pictures! The staples (family, bridal party, ceremony) were fantastic and really captured our relationship and that of our friends and fam. The couple pictures are absolute magazine quality. We didn't provide much direction beyond the combos of family we needed and we totally didn't need to! She knows exactly what she is doing and has an eye for everything - the lighting, the colors, the angles that bring out the best in you and your husband. We will treasure these for years and years to come!! Working with Gina - both she and her second photographer, were a blast and made us feel so comfortable. They arrived on time, and Gina was completely cool and collected–she even calmed me down in the midst of my pre-ceremony stress out (thanks!). We had an enormous family and bridal party, and they can get pretty rowdy, but Gina managed the photos perfectly, getting everyone in and out, then immediately getting us to our couple photos. We had a gap between the ceremony and reception and she got all of the various pictures we needed/wanted PLUS got us done early enough so we could sit in the bridal suite and eat a bit before cocktail hour."
