Friends Call me "G"


sweet words from rad people


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.




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!




Gianna is amazing at what she does! Hands down the best photographer I've ever seen or worked with. Professional, communicative and delivers exactly what you had in mind. When we first saw Gianna's work we were blown away and wanted to capture that same type of style and presentation we were looking at for our own needed photo collection. Nervous as we had hired a previous photographer and what we were shown as his portfolio was not represented in the photos we received and alot of cute details were left out - he was of course on the low end of our budget. With Gianna what she displays in her portfolios are accurate representations and she just goes above and beyond! Gianna captured our home the way we see it (actually better) and she didn't forget to capture the small details that make it special. We have used Gianna twice now and we plan to continue doing so. I can't even begin to explain how fun Gianna is to work with or how she makes you feel at ease about everything. Gianna is not only lovely to be around but also has an amazing eye for how the camera will capture what is in the lens. I mean she makes simple household items look just amazing: folded bathroom towels, shampoo/conditioner bottles, soap bars, a pillow, or folded throw blankets, a small wind chime. It is like she has magic in that camera of hers. You will not be disappointed!! Don't take long to make your decision to hire Gianna because she books up fast. We love her and have the utmost trust in her vision or her understanding our vision and executing it to perfection when we hire her.
