Wine Country/Destination Photographer ~ Gina Petersen is a Northern Bay Area based photographer specializing in creative, backlit images; Published in many wedding blogs, she balances her wedding collections with the traditional shots that are more classic and appreciated timelessly but also believes that the candid moments that are stolen when no one is watching are the images that incite emotion and recall the memories from your wedding day for years to come.
With a photojournalistic, soft-lit style, Gina strives to provide her clients with not only awe-inspiring images but to be an available resource. Gina feels the relationship between a wedding photographer and couple should be easy, comfortable and fun. There are many styles of photographers as well as different couple personalities. It’s important to be sure that the photographer that you choose is someone what fits your personality as a couple. Taking a limited amount of weddings each season insures that Gina has the time she wants in getting to know each couple, so that come the day of their wedding, she feels more like a friend than a hired vendor.
It is difficult for a photographer to capture candid, fun, romantic moments if the couple is feeling uncomfortable or uneasy being photographed. Take your time in finding what photographer works best with your style, budget and personality.
Gina is available for in-person, phone or Skype consults. Feel free to contact her at 707.338.2703 or Gina@GinaPetersenPhotography.com.

Stunning Engagement Photos
Gina shot our engagement photos and we couldn't be happier. They are by far the most professional photos we've ever taken. She took us to a field with a gorgeous backdrop and took us through several natural poses. The use of light was really impressive.Sent on 01/15/2019

Speechless! The absolute best photographer!
Wow! Gina really captures EVERYTHING. My husband and I were beyond excited to work with Gina after our initial phone call with her. She has such a bubbly personality and helps you feel confident in choosing her to be the photographer for your wedding.Sent on 11/26/2018
My husband and I were in love with our engagement photos and knew we had chosen the right person for our wedding. Gina makes sure everyone is comfortable and she really captures all the special moments. She goes above and beyond to ensure everyone is on the same page prior to the wedding date - making sure she captures all the photos you want!
Not only did my husband and I love working with Gina - our wedding guests and wedding parties did too! She is always smiling and is so personable. I had several friends excited to see photos before the day was over!
Last - Gina gets you your photos ON TIME!!! She works tirelessly to make sure you get the photos of your special day on a timely schedule. My husband and I received our photos within a month of our wedding and were able to share the photos with all our friends and family over the holiday weekend!
If you're looking for a professional, amazing, energetic, lover of life photographer - work with Gina Petersen!!!! She's the best! :)

Honestly the best
Choosing Gina to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. She is such a reassuring and fun presence to be around and just puts everybody at ease. And her photography is amazing - somehow it’s not just the scenes she captures, but all the energy from those moments too. Looking back at our album, we can really feel all the excitement, love and joy from our wedding day come through in every photo. She preserved all our most important moments as well as the small, intimate details that we never would have seen if not for her photos. Once the wedding is over, all the memories becomes fuzzy - but Gina’s photos transport us right back into the very best day of our lives.Sent on 12/05/2018
(I should also mention, the magic she creates with sunsets. She is a true artist and will make you GLOW.)
More than just the photos though, we never would have guessed what kind of emotional support Gina would be for us. She guided us expertly through the chaos of a wedding day. She kept the whole day running like a well oiled machine, so that we got all the pictures we wanted, but still got to join our guests by cocktail hour and enjoy our own party. Along the way, she made sure to check in that we were feeling good, that we got our quiet moments alone, that we were staying hydrated... more than our photographer, she felt like our friend.
We could go on forever about how much we love Gina, but we’ll stop here - just book her! You will not regret it.
