Friends Call me "G"


sweet words from rad people




My fiancé and I were a bit nervous about the idea of being in front of the camera, but as soon as we showed up, Gianna instantly put that feeling to rest. We were laughing along with her right away and she made us feel very comfortable right off the bat, and that carried throughout the entire session. She gave us a few pointers to start but other than that, she just captured our goofiness and love so easily. Not only did we have such a fun time, we immediately connected with Gianna and found an amazing new friend! We will definitely be visiting Big Bear to see her again!

Gianna also sent us sneak peeks incredibly fast (the next day!!) and we immediately fell in love with them. Her editing style is exactly what we love in photos. That style with her eye for capturing love - how could you not love her pictures? We will certainly be having her photograph us again down the road.

If you want someone easy going, cool, relatable, genuine, and TALENTED, G is your girl!




1000% recommend G! My fiancé and I got engaged in August and so began the hunt for an engagement photographer. I found G on Instagram and immediately fell in love with her work. We felt so incredibly lucky that G had an opening around the time we were already planning on visiting Big Bear.

We were SO NERVOUS and had no idea what to expect but from the start she made it so easy. My fiancé was worried about being awkward in pictures and G helped us along the way and gave us prompts that made it super fun. She was hyping me up and made me feel so confident and beautiful. G was so easy to get along with and has such a kind soul. We felt a connection with her from the start.

We just had our shoot yesterday afternoon and by 9am this morning she had sent me sneak peaks. My fiancé and I are both in love with the photos and couldn’t stop looking at them all day. I had a vision in my head and she accomplished it. SERIOUSLY SHE IS SOOOO TALENTED!

If we hadn’t already booked our wedding photographer and she was local, she’d be first on our list. She will honestly be our photographer for life. We can’t wait for future shoots with her.


I had been eyeing Gianna’s work for many years before I got to work with her. She decided to start doing sessions in San Diego and I jumped at the chance. She definitely surpassed my expectations and was amazing from start to finish.

I did my maternity shoot with my family which included my husband, toddler and dog. Even before the session she checked my outfits and asked me if I had any insecurities she should know about to help make me feel comfortable.

During the session she did such a great job at making us feel comfortable in front of the camera which truly shows in the pictures. She gave us plenty cues on how to pose, but also made sure to take candid pictures of our family. She worked effortlessly around my crazy untrained dog and my free spirited toddler.

She found such a beautiful location in SD to capture our session and I absolutely loved the pictures. There were so many I loved, it made it hard to decide which prints to display in our home (good problem to have). She also gave us our picture so quickly! With past photographers I’ve waited several weeks, but Gianna’s turn around time was very fast. Her energy is infectious, she was a pleasure to meet and I really hope to work with her again in the future. I cannot recommend Gianna more highly.
