Who We Are

Meet the photographers of your destination wedding!

We are Giselle and Jonathan (Gionata in Italian).
We are wedding photographers with over 20 years of experience in wedding photography. We are passionate about mixing art and storytelling on our destination wedding photography.

We create the memories of every destination wedding and offer you a wedding photography gallery where you relive the story of your unforgettable experience over and over again.

The Riviera Maya is our base of operations. Gionata arrived 20 years ago from Tuscany, Italy. As a photographer, he immediately fell in love with the blue sea of Cancun, the jungle and the magical cenotes of Tulum. All landscapes in the Riviera Maya are an inexhaustible source of photographic beauty.

The perfect setting to narrate epic love stories through artistic photography.

Giselle arrived 10 years later, with camera in hand, and fine art and editorial photography experience in mind. She discovered wedding storytelling and fell in love with destination wedding photography. When Gionata and Giselle met, they combined their love of photography and fell in love with each other!!!

Truly the BEST photographer!

We searched for the perfect wedding photographer who could capture a multi-day, interfaith wedding in Isla Mujeres. We wanted someone who could fit in with our amazing friends and family, who could wrangle all the people running in 100 different directions, who could capture all the magical moments in a photo-journalistic manner. After literally interviewing 10+ photographers, we were hesitant to reach out to Jonathan as we assumed he would be too expensive given his many global awards and given how amazing his work is. We had a call with Jonathan and his amazing studio manager, Heather and immediately fell in love with them. They had a way of deeply listening to our desires and we truly felt heard. We got a custom quote for the multi-day wedding and we felt his prices were reasonable and we were pleasantly surprised how easy they made the whole process! We arranged to have Jonathan and Gisel come several days before the wedding for a “pre-wedding shoot”. This was SO MUCH FUN! We got to know the two of them and they became like family to us and the PHOTOS are AMAZING! A week later when they showed up to shoot the wedding, they fit right in and all of our guests thought they were long time friends of ours as they truly fit right in and exuded the amazing LOVE that surrounded us that weekend. Jonathan and Gisel have an amazing eye for creative shots, they captured everything we wanted and we were BLOWN AWAY by the amazing photos! The whole weekend was a dream come true and they captured it so well. We could not be happier with the photos and more importantly for the friendship we established with them! You will NOT be disappointed by this amazing team!

Fantastic and personal. Made us all feel comfortable with them.

We had a blast with Jonathan! He’s very friendly and easy to work with. For me that doesn’t like cameras I was a bit stressed at first but he really made me loose up and I didn’t notice him after a while . Fantastic pictures that really captures the moment.

You can notice Jonathan's work through the attention to detail he takes. His pictures carry a sharp Italian touch that is unmatached. His laid back and humorous attitude lightens up a very busy day. He always seems to capture the magic in the moment in a glimpse. You can tell that his subjects were enjoying every minute. To have Jonathan as a photographer, is also to have a comedian entertaining you while recording the special moments that should not be missed.
