  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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 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.

  • 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!

  • Thank you GALA Photo and Films for the amazing job you did capturing our wedding day! Marc, Gia and the team are incredible! They ended up feeling more like friends at our wedding than photographers and videographers. They were just so fun to work with! They provide quality photos and video and really know how to make you feel comfortable behind the camera. My husband, our wedding party and myself had so much fun taking pictures during our big day. Marc goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy without breaking your budget. These guys are so great! Highly recommend them for your wedding!

  • I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by their work, they automatically went to the top of my list and we are so happy that they could shoot our wedding. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, these guys are a force! On our big day Gia and Marc were focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my wife were just a blast. Through out the course of day Gia and Marc continued to bring a thirst and enthusiasm for capturing our wedding and what made that day so special for us, I know those images will be personal and we cant wait to see them. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Gia and Marc entrusted with that responsibility was a dream. Thanks Guys!

  • Marc and Gia are the best in the business! Choosing them as our photographers for our engagement and wedding photos was the best decision we made. They made the whole process enjoyable, natural, and FUN!! They are a joy to work with. In addition to their spunky and witty personalities, their work exceeded our expectations. They have a true natural talent for photography and were able to capture every special moment that meant the world to us. Their communication was consistent, effective, and efficient. Their precision to detail is amazing. If you want the most authentic, unique, and fun photos in town, these are your people. One conversation with them and you'll be hooked. Thank you Marc and Gia ! We love you and can't wait for future photo sessions! - Ashley and Edgar

  • We had the honor of Marc and Gia at our wedding and they are incredible. From the beautiful engagement shoot at the beach to the 200 person church and tent wedding. The photos tell the story and bring back every feeling from our wedding day and we look at them feeling laughter and tears. They are truly talented and captured everything and we will treasure these forever. Thank you so much!!

  • 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

  • We had such a wonderful experience with Marc and Gia as our wedding photographers from the planning stages to the day-of events and to receiving our photos in a timely manner. They were so flexible and attentive to what we wanted and needed for our wedding - even helping us plan our wedding timeline when we had no clue what we were doing. They captured so many beautiful photos, I can't even describe. From the bridal party shots, to the group family photos, and even making sure friends / family who wanted to take photos on their phones also got a chance to capture what they wanted. They got great candid moments too. They are efficient and for me in my heels, they kept it quick and got the shots quickly. LoL They were also playful and got fun shots of the guys and girls getting ready and in our photo location. We highly recommend them. Thank you again to Gala photo for capturing our special day!
