    Best choice

    Gala videos (Marc) covered the pre wedding event of Haldi (Indian tradition).
    The quality of the coverage is exceptional, especially because they captured the moods/ emotions of the bride, groom and guests so well. The event extended a couple of hours due to last minute changes. Marc and his colleague agreed to stay for extended hours and covered the event. That was a stressful time for us as times changed.
    I appreciate Marc and his colleague for being so cooperative. The team covered all rituals in detail and used close up shots.
    All our guests liked their pleasant personalities and the way they interacted with them.
    I highly recommend them for any event.

    An obvious (and best) choice!

    Gala Photo and Films exceeds what would be expected of a wedding photographer. This dynamic duo, husband-wife team, will quickly grow to be your favorite wedding vendor as their passion and genuineness shines through each call, email, and of course - every photo - that they take.

    My husband and I had the opportunity to work closely with Gia for our engagement shoot and wedding day and we could not be more grateful for how comfortable she made us feel. We’re both a bit awkward in front of a camera but Gia’s kindness and professionalism made us feel like naturals!

    Gala Photo specializes in bright, natural photography which really made them stand out to me during a time where ‘moody’ and ‘burnt’ photography was trendy. After receiving our sneak peeks, it became evident to me that these photos will stand the test of time, far past any trend, and that Marc and Gia go above and beyond to make sure each and every photo is perfect.

    Aside from photography, Gia (and our second shooter for the day, Luis) were excellent in navigating the chaos that a wedding day can bring! From helping to coordinate schedules that didn’t involve photography, gathering large groups of friends and family members for photos, and even to Gia giving me a ride to my wedding venue due to a last minute hiccup - they quickly became my pillar of calmness!

    If we had to do it over again, we would choose Gala! The quality of their photos and their eagerness to work with couples make them an obvious, and the best, choice!

    The best team ever!!

    If you made it through our first review of Marc (Gia & GALA Photo and Films), it's been two years since and an even greater love affair for this photographer and their business. Like many 2019 couples, we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID-19, and Marc could not have been more accomodating and understanding. Leading up to the big day, Gia sent us reminders as well as worksheets to get us organized for photo requests timeline and family portraits. When our wedding day came, Marc and Gia were incredible in getting the group energized as well as relaxed. They scoped out all the spots for the first look, family photos, wedding party photos - everything was done, they just told us where and how to get it done.

    Marc's photos speak for themselves. What we can tell you is they are not just incredibly organized and professional wedding photographer, but they also add to the party. They're friendly, fun and easygoing. Our family and friends loved them. And finally, Marc and Gia delivers. They had sneak peek photos for us by the time we were home from the wedding (and feeling the post-wedding blues), and they had our entire album sent to us before the deadline. Could not be more emphatic about hiring GALA Photo and Films for your wedding, next event, any photography needs in general!
