Wine Country/Destination Photographer ~ Gina Petersen is a Northern Bay Area based photographer specializing in creative,, classic, backlit images; Published in People magazine and on 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 Facetime 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

Choose Gina, she is the BEST!
We LOVED working with Gina! From our first call together we were impressed with her organization and confidence. She was quick to respond to email/phone calls, and she has the most amazing personality! When we shot with her for our engagement session and our wedding, we had so much fun. She is so good at wrangling people, and she made us feel comfortable & at ease. Oh, and her photos? They're gorgeous. She has undeniable talent, and we feel so lucky that she shared it with us. We love you Gina!Sent on 11/01/2019

GINA is amazing. I met her a few years ago because I was in a friends wedding she was taking the photos for. I knew she was my photographer for my own wedding the second I got engaged. I think I texted her before my own friends and family :). I can not explain how talented she is in enough words.
I hate having my pictures taken, and somehow she makes me feel so at ease and like we're all just hanging out. I feel comfortable telling her what I'm insecure about and she's great reminding me to adjust while she's taking pictures. She's also just so much fun to be around; always happy and smiling. Her positive energy is something you need on your wedding day but just in general!
I love that she shows you a few pictures on her screen halfway through shooting to make sure the vision is coming together, she also is fabulous at giving you a few pics the very next day for social media :).
I'm so happy she was there for us on our wedding day, and we can't recommend her enough to others. We are so excited to use her in the future for our first anniversary, etc.Sent on 09/30/2019
