"If I could give Gina Esposito more than five stars, I would! Gina and her team were INCREDIBLE. They by far surpassed all of my expectations. Our wedding was a destination wedding, and I did not want to compromise on our pictures. Gina and her team flew down for the whole weekend and even did a trash the dress shoot with us the next day–which was AMAZING and ALL the pictures are BREATHTAKING! Planning a destination wedding was time consuming and difficult, but using Gina was an easy and obvious choice. I'm so glad I flew them to our location and I wouldn't change a single thing about it. Gina is amazing at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She made it feel totally natural, which is definitely what we needed. If you want to do those long and exhausting family shots, she is more than organized at getting everyone together, getting it done, and with the best results ever. Her and her team were even great with the kids. My husband and I have five nieces and nephews (2 years old and below) in our wedding and there are shots that make them look like baby Gap models. I literally have a thousand amazing pictures to choose from, I don't even know where to start! Every picture is more beautiful than the last. She is so artistic and brilliant in her detail shots. The pictures of my husband and I are so romantic and beautiful that they all look like they belong in a magazine. Gina is so creative, beyond talented, and clearly meant to be a photographer! Pictures last a lifetime and capture the most special moments of your wedding day. You need to hire someone you can trust with such an important aspect of your day. Do yourself the biggest favor and hire Gina and her team. I promise it will be the best wedding decision you make. This girl definitely found her calling in life and I give her the ABSOLUTE HIGHEST recommendation."

"Gina was the only photographer we met with, and after we left her studio, we called her on the way home to book her that night. Aside from her talent, we felt very comfortable with Gina since she is both the owner as well as the main photographer. She is young, vibrant and just "gets it." We felt more comfortable with her because we knew exactly who our photographer would be that day, and we knew the quality of her work, of course. We were texting a few days before the wedding talking about photo locations in the case of rain; she is so easy to communicate with - where else can you find a vendor who is that easy to keep in touch with?
Another thing that really blew me away, is that I never noticed Gina or her assistant taking photos during ceremony. I never noticed they were there, but there are hundreds of photos from the ceremony. Same with our main dances/cake cutting/etc. I think that really sets apart a good photographer, they never interfered with the day itself, but still captured each moment.
I was so happy once we received our photos and saw the beautiful moments she captured. She was able to take my husband and I, who are both camera shy, and create awesome shots that really represent the entire feeling of the day. What sets her apart from other photographers is the lack of "cheesiness" in her photos. They are classic and timeless. Years from now, our photos will still be relevant and beautiful. Every person who sees our photos say they belong in a magazine. Thank you so much Gina for everything."

"I honestly can not say enough great things about Gina and her staff, so I won't ramble; let me get right to the point. Do you want amazing photos, like beyond your fairytale dreams? Hire Gina. I know today everyone is a photographer, thanks to Instagram, but Gina is truthfully a God amongst mortals in the photography business. From the moment I saw her portfolio I knew she was the one (quicker than when I met my husband! lol). Now, I minored in photography in college, so I know basic composition, lighting, shutter speed etc., but what I know on an entry level, Gina has mastered. I knew what style photos I wanted–mine. Clean, crisp, contemporary yet with a warm romantic aspect and Gina hit all those expectations out of the park. She has an impeccable eye for capturing the exact feelings and emotions I was experiencing and her ability to do so brings me back to one of the best days of my life every time I look at a photo. Gina was professional from the start, very quick to respond to any forms of contact, and very willing to listen to all my ideas (which you can imagine would be a lot!). Gina was flexible with scheduling, and that really helps accommodate any crazy bride with our crazy schedules. It only took one month to receive my photo gallery, and seeing how I got married in the peak of wedding season, I find that a very short amount of time to wait for the very high quality photos I received. I could not be happier with the product I received from Gina, or the all-around experience I had working with her and her staff from start to finish. As someone who has dealt with planning a wedding and budgeting (or lack there of) this is the area where you want to "spare no expense"- TRUST ME!! Your wedding will fly by and Gina will capture your wedding day and everything that happened (PG or not) and she will make those cringe-worthy garter scenes grandmother appropriate. It is impossible to put into words how very happy I am with my wedding photos."

"Any bride knows how stressful wedding planning can be. We meet with countless vendors–some good, some not-so-good. Everyone tries to sell you their product, and most talk a good game. When I first contacted Gina Esposito, there was such a different quality to the communication. I'd already viewed her impressive work online, but what truly set her apart was her demeanor. The day of your wedding can be hectic, and it was important that my husband and I hired someone with whom we felt at ease. Gina fit the bill to a tee. At a time when we hadn't even hired her, she actually helped me with various aspects of my wedding planning, aspects which had nothing to do with photography. She began to feel like a friend, not just a prospective vendor. The day of the wedding, Gina was the epitome of professionalism. She handled everything that was thrown her way. The weather was uncertain and we kept making changes the day of the wedding; Gina rolled with the hourly changes and was so calming. We had people comment throughout the day about what an absolute pleasure she was to be around. On to the actual photography: Upon our return from our honeymoon, Gina had already sent us about 25 teasers. They were absolutely stunning. We couldn't wait to see the rest of our photos. Luckily, we didn't have to wait long. Within a month of our wedding, our photos were in-hand. She captured every emotion and special moment. We had so many photos to look through and we loved each and every one of them. We've had wedding guests and family ask for Gina's contact info, without even having seen our photos. They asked based simply upon their interaction with her during the wedding. Though neither my husband nor I met her prior to the wedding day (everything we did was either online or on the phone), we felt as though we'd hired an old friend to shoot our wedding when the day arrived. We look forward to hiring her again in the future. For us, there is no other photographer with whom we'd rather work."
