    Wonderful experience!

    Gabe was a joy to work with. He was able to capture the important parts of the preparation, the ceremony, and the celebration afterwards beautifully. Just as beautiful as the photography was his ability to "handle" two large families (with children running around) in their posed photos--with grace and humor. Everyone loved him!

    Easy to worth with before, during, and after

    Gabe did an incredible job. We hired him to photograph our ceremony and reception. He was great during the session. He took the challenges as they came (husband doesn't often smile for pictures and flower girls were running around into the frame) and went with them, somehow creating beautiful be pictures from my non-photogenic family. He did a great job directing us when we needed direction and stepping back when it was a good time to do so. He is creative and gets pictures to you quickly. He provides the photos without watermarks and in a format where you or anyone with the link can download the photos. He also sends a USB with the photos. Finally, his fee is incredibly fair and competitively priced. He's a great guy to work with and we definitely recommend him, even if your family is as difficult as ours was!

    It is with ease and 100% certainty that I recommend Gabe as your next event's photographer. I had the joy of working with him for a small, intimate wedding ceremony this past winter and he was absolutely AMAZING! Not only are his photos stunning and gorgeous, but his attention to detail is remarkable. Likewise, his ability to interact and motivate a large group was extremely impressive- often times as the officiant I almost feel sorry for the poor photographers who have to take a very nervous or very excited (or even very drunk) group of people and get everyone to listen and cooperate in order to capture the best moments, but Gabe did that with ease... and he made it fun! Plus, very rarely do I encounter a one-man photographer capture as many photos as he did without having a "team" to assist him! Throughout the ceremony, he respectfully took pictures from several angles, moving around the entire "stage" of the ceremony, capturing stunningly beautiful (and intimate) moments between the couple. If you're looking for a truly professional, detail oriented, fun and outgoing photographer who can capture your event's simple AND big moments, look no further... you have found him!
