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.

Its hard to not sound over-stated when I talk about how tremendously fantastic our experience was with Gina Petersen. Not only is she a talented artist who truly captures the beautiful candid moments between us and our wedding guests, but she is a fantastic human! Gina was truly a highlight of our wedding experience. If you let her see who you are as people, she will capture all of that wonder in your wedding photographs! I would recommend her 1000000 times over!Sent on 06/06/2019

Gina was the best!
Going with Gina Peterson Photography for our wedding was such a great life decision for us. From her being so flexible with our schedules for our engagement shoot (we live on the East coast but got married on the West coast), to keeping us organized and sane on the day of, being super responsive and running with all of our day of bloops, working well with all of our vendors and taking photos that really captured our special day - she was more than just our photographer and we always felt like we were in good hands. Can't recommend her enough, and we had such a blast with her on our magical wedding day. Thanks for all of the memories and laughs, and for capturing them in the best way Gina!Sent on 08/06/2019

Seamless to work with and beautiful work!
Gina's spirit is so bright - she is the type of photographer you want to have by your side on a special day. She radiates happiness and ease, and is highly skilled at what she does. My husband was worried about posing for photos being awkward, and as soon as we started the engagement shoot, Gina put him completely at ease. On our wedding day, Gina rolled with the punches when hair/makeup took longer than expected - making it very stress free for everyone. Our wedding photos were incredibly beautiful, and I'm not surprised given her passion and ability to capture the meaningful moments!Sent on 08/05/2019
