After interviewing several photography vendors, it was a no-brainer to choose Marc and Gia to be the ones capturing our wedding celebration. From the moment we spoke with Marc on the phone, we could feel his transparency and good nature. While we live overseas, our wedding was in San Jose, CA. Marc worked with us very closely and made the process very easy, removing all of the long-distance hassles. He did not treat us a client but more like a friend and relative. He listened to our requests and criteria and provided useful recommendations in finding locations for photoshoot prior to our ceremony.Sent on 01/02/2021
We met Marc and Gia for the first time on-location for the photoshoot session. All we can say is that they were more pleasant and friendly than we had anticipated. They are a very professional, knowledgeable, and expert team. It felt as if we knew them for a long time.
We are very glad and blessed to have found them as professional photographers and now as friends. They go beyond the call of duty to make sure your event is captured and recorded for the rest of your life. All the guests were impressed with Marc and Gia’s friendly and professional attitudes.
Thank you Marc and Gia for making our wedding a memorable one.

Professional Wedding Photographers
I don't know where to start from. I am writing this review to say how amazing Gala team is! They made my wedding day 100 times better. My family loved them! Prior hiring them, I had heard horrible stories from others about their wedding photographers and I was really hesitant to hire a photographer that I don't know. Marc & Gia were the best professional photographers ever! My wedding planner also loved them. We got the sneak peek photos within 2 days of the wedding. Thank you Marc & Gia.Sent on 04/21/2020

Unbeatable price & quality work
Gala team was one of the best vendors we had at our wedding. My husband and I cannot be more pleased with their quality services. we hired them for photo & video purposes. Initially we were trying to get only photographer but we ended up getting video package as well. We shopped around almost a month before we decided to hire the Gala team. Their prices are unbeatable as well as the quality of the photos & videos. They also give you documentary edit which includes the full ceremony, speeches, dances and getting ready. They were fast to deliver the projects and we are very happy with everything! This review was way overdue! Thanks Gala Team!Sent on 04/04/2020
