  • After interviewing several photography vendors, it was a no-brainer to choose Marc and Gia to be the ones capturing our wedding celebration. From the moment we spoke with Marc on the phone, we could feel his transparency and good nature. While we live overseas, our wedding was in San Jose, CA. Marc worked with us very closely and made the process very easy, removing all of the long-distance hassles. He did not treat us a client but more like a friend and relative. He listened to our requests and criteria and provided useful recommendations in finding locations for photoshoot prior to our ceremony. We met Marc and Gia for the first time on-location for the photoshoot session. All we can say is that they were more pleasant and friendly than we had anticipated. They are a very professional, knowledgeable, and expert team. It felt as if we knew them for a long time. We are very glad and blessed to have found them as professional photographers and now as friends. They go beyond the call... Read more

  • I don't know where to start from. I am writing this review to say how amazing Gala team is! They made my wedding day 100 times better. My family loved them! Prior hiring them, I had heard horrible stories from others about their wedding photographers and I was really hesitant to hire a photographer that I don't know. Marc & Gia were the best professional photographers ever! My wedding planner also loved them. We got the sneak peek photos within 2 days of the wedding. Thank you Marc & Gia.

  • Got married 5/21 after pushing back our date 3x due to Covid. Marc and Gia were an absolute dream to work with. We did our engagement shoot back in July and instantly knew we made the right choice. Our photos came out lovely, the energy throughout the shoot was wonderful and we were so excited to be moving forward. Throughout the whole rescheduling process we never had to worry about communication which was a life savor. We ended up moving our wedding from California to North Carolina and Marc came out with a local team. Our sneak peeks look stunning; the day went smoothly and we just overall cannot thank them enough. Biggest compliment to them taking photos of the party without getting in the way or being pushy which we’ve def experienced as guests before . So sad the day is over now 😭😭😭highly recommend!!

  • Gala team was one of the best vendors we had at our wedding. My husband and I cannot be more pleased with their quality services. we hired them for photo & video purposes. Initially we were trying to get only photographer but we ended up getting video package as well. We shopped around almost a month before we decided to hire the Gala team. Their prices are unbeatable as well as the quality of the photos & videos. They also give you documentary edit which includes the full ceremony, speeches, dances and getting ready. They were fast to deliver the projects and we are very happy with everything! This review was way overdue! Thanks Gala Team!

  • Let me tell you how amazing these people are! My fiance and I interviewed 12 photographers until we found Marc! He was very responsive throughout the hiring process and until the last day. Marc & Gia managed the whole wedding and were extremely patient with my family. I had over 250 people at our wedding and they were able to manage each group photo without any frustration. I know it is not easy to get 20 people lined up for photos but thank God, Marc was easily able to perform the best! We are anxiously waiting for our final edited photos and videos and I know they are going to look gorgeous since we have seen the sneak peek photos. You won't regret hiring them!

  • Marc & Gia documented our wedding day so beautifully! Their professional and organized approach, easy-going attitude, and artistic eye made them great to work with. They were very professional and organized throughout our time working together, making sure that we knew that our day was their priority. Marc put us at ease during our calls, and always communicated clearly about what he needed from us and what we could expect from him. He met us at our wedding venue to scout out good photo locations and to familiarize with the space. The day of, they made sure we got all of the photos we wanted (and more!), all while being on top of timing and directing us and our families in a pleasant way so we were on track and having fun. They are a joy to work with because Marc & Gia are good conversationalist, and has an easy-going and positive attitude. We felt like we got to know them at our engagement shoot and then at our wedding , and that was great because we enjoyed spending time with... Read more

  • I hired Gala to photograph my wedding on VERY short short notice and he came through for me! I had a pretty traditional Desi (Indian) wedding and they knew exactly what to do. Marc and Gia, worked with me and my husband to get the best shots we could, which was not easy because we were INDOORS, in not the best lighting. Luckily, they had all of the necessary gear to light up the room for our portraits and we even borrowed on of their lights for our makeshift photo booth my sister made for us. They were very attentive to detail and captured some amazing shots of me and my husband before the ceremony.

Marc was respectful of my requests and asked me beforehand what shots I wanted to get and definitely delivered. They were good to ask about when it would and wouldn't be appropriate for photos. Also they were very friendly with all the guests who were all very happy to be in the pictures.

The turnaround time was pretty quick, I got my photos back before the promised time and they ... Read more

  • Marc & Gia made my wedding day memorable and captured all the beautiful moments. We had a bit of a stressful time with our venue and Marc stepped in and made everything worth it. He coordinated and even put in my veil! My guest loved him and said he was very nice and patient. When I received my previews the next day I cried. I never thought I could look so beautiful in a photo. My husband and I loved the photos and cannot wait to frame the photos and hang them up! I would say he isn't just a photographer he is an artist and has an eye for detail and beauty. He is highly recommended.

  • I couldn't be happier with the experience and quality we received from GALA! We spoke with Marc back in March (2019) and was very happy with our first call. I was very picky on the team that would photograph and film our wedding and after meeting Marc, I knew that he would be the photographer that'll capture our wedding as I imagined. He was very thorough and upfront which makes it easy, especially when I don't know nothing about photography. I worked directly with Gia most of the time via email or phone - and she fit right in with me and my bridesmaids. She was creative, accommodating and brought so much great energy! She helped us out a lot with the timeline and also gave me a bunch of creative ideas for our engagement photo shoot. We had a total of 4 team members on our wedding day and I can't thank them enough. They went above and beyond and made us feel very comfortable. We could feel how passionate they were about their work and how knowledgeable they were about the venue and... Read more

  • We first worked with Gia and Marc last March for our engagement photo. We had so much fun! We wanted something natural and simple; that's why we chose them. After a week, they already sent us a preview of our session! Our wedding was this past January 2020 and again, we received a sneak peak within 2 weeks later and our finalized photos after a month! Our video was done within 6 weeks as stated per contract.We were impressed! I've heard horrible stories from friends about their photos not being available to them right away. We are just so lucky to have worked with such an amazing team!

  • My husband and I booked Gala Photo and Films for our November 2019 wedding and they were absolutely WONDERFUL to work with! Their photography and videography skills are abundantly evident in their work and I was immediately drawn in by the naturalness of their photos and use of light. You can definitely feel the joy and love in the couples they photograph. From the beginning, it felt like a clear and confident decision to work with them and I'm SO GLAD we did! Our engagement and wedding photos came out beautifully. Marc and Gia always made us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera and were always open to any ideas or requests. On our wedding day, they helped with the flow of our day and respectfully took charge when needed, which I completely appreciated! They kept us on track and never pressured me. When there was a mix-up on seating at our venue, I headed over to help resolve the issue but was intercepted by Marc and Gia who assured me they could handle it and redirected... Read more

  • We are so glad we chose GALA Photo and Films as our wedding photographers. Their professionalism, attention to detail, and beautiful photos made it so easy to work with them and they captured such amazing memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We had a wonderful engagement shoot with Marc, who helped us look natural and have fun throughout, and our happiness shines through in our photos. For our wedding day, we had Marc & Gia as our photographers and Paul & Nicole as our videographers and they were all just amazing. Gia stuck to me throughout the day and did a great job capturing the candid joy and moments of the day. Marc took artistic shots, helped coordinate our poses and also helped coordinating to make sure we are on time. Their approach was great and they played with light, angles and the different areas throughout our venue to create a holistic album of photos and video footage. Overall, the GALA team was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend ... Read more
