  • 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!

  • I am writing this review because I feel like everyone should know how amazing the Gala Photo and Films is! From the day we hired them, they were very responsive and helpful with any questions we had. We had a long day and they were able to accommodate with hours without any hesitation. They are budget friendly and their work is phenomenal. We hot sneak peek right after the wedding and waiting for our beautiful highlight video coming soon! We had over 200 guests and you can imagine how our group photos would be like. They took the lead and they managed to get the group photos perfectly. If you want your wedding day to go smooth and run on time, hire them. We didnt have a wedding planner, but they managed to draw us a timeline that we were able to squeeze in everything. Thank you so much guys! Jeremy

  • We decided to get married at San Francisco City Hall, and had many different rates from photographers. Some were very expensive, which to us defeated the purpose of having a simple ceremony at City Hall. I was very excited to have found Marc & Gia at GALA Photo & Films because not only was their photography beautiful, but they offered such an affordable rate compared to other photographers that I had received quotes from. From the beginning, their communication was spot-on and I appreciated that I could call or text with any questions and get a response almost immediately. The other unexpected highlight of GALA is that they had done so many City Hall weddings that not only did they know the best locations for beautiful photos, but they were so well-versed in the entire process that they helped walk us through from beginning to end. Without their expertise, we would've gotten very lost as the entire process was more complicated than we had expected. Despite the busy wedding seaso... Read more

  • Marc & Gia shot both our engagement and wedding photos, and they looked absolutely stunning!!! They captured natural lights, and turned photos (first sneak peeks) around very quickly! They are very easy to work with, and they will confirm to make sure there aren't other places or photos you want to take / capture for either your engagement or wedding day.They are also open to suggestions if you want to see your photos edited more or less. I recommend Marc & Gia if you are looking for a photographer to capture your big day! We look at our wedding photos at least once a week!

  • I cannot begin to express how wonderful our experience was with Marc and Gia. Not only were the photos beautiful, but they were such a joy to work with from our engagement shoot to the wedding and even afterwards. They took time to get to know us as people, not just as clients. We felt cared about, prioritized, and part of the photography process. In preparation for our engagement shoot, Gia asked if we had any special ideas of what we’d like to do for the shoot. She gave a few ideas but emphasized that it should be something reflective of who we are as a couple. We ended up doing a really exciting shoot at the beach and it was so much fun! Marc is great at helping people loosen up and have fun in front of the camera! My husband and I joke about our engagement shoot - Marc coaching us on how to relax a bit…we had a great laugh and Marc actually snuck in a shot of this happening! He quickly became well-known by our wedding party as the gumby-legged photographer who would get into a... Read more

  • From the moment we first had contact with Marc we knew he would be the perfect photographer for our big day. We had researched his work online and after seeing his Instagram and website pictures, we completely fell in love with his natural style of photography and ability to capture the beauty in a moment. On the day of our wedding, he even showed up earlier than planned so that he could snap some getting ready photos which turned out to be some of our favourite pictures from the day! Its hard to put in to words how blown away we were by his work on our big day. There were so many incredible and special moments that he managed to capture so perfectly, and so naturally, which is just what we were looking for. We lost count of all the guests who commented on how amazing he was. He was able to direct the group photos without being intrusive or overbearing and throughout the day he blended in to the scene perfectly. He used every lighting opportunity he could find to capture a range ... Read more

  • I can't express enough how much we appreciated Galaphotoandfilms to document our big day. From booking them 1.5 years in advance, to taking our engagement photos, we knew we made the best decision to go with them. They are meticulous in every photo shoot, sometimes even picky for us than we were! They know how to handle big families when it came to taking pictures with every family group. They also helped me relax on my wedding day and I never once felt stressed. They were the unspoken "day-of-coordinator" to ensure that they got every special moment I had with my husband on camera. Lastly, they came to the rescue at the last minute and was able to document my best friend's wedding as she was told she did not have that long left to live. It still means the world to me that Galaphotoandfilms treated us like family. That's what I think is always missing in other photographers and videographers. This team really caters to you as the couple. Thank you again and I am so in love with the pho... Read more

  • Galaphotoandfilms was hands down the best decision we ever made for our wedding amongst our other vendors. From booking them a year and a half ago, they have treated us like family. Every question I had, every anxiety I had leading up to the wedding, they were there to calm me down. It was amazing that they also handled the events we had for our wedding. We never had to worry about time of events. They easily accommodated to our needs that day. On a personal note, Marc and his team came through last minute to document my best friends’ wedding as she didn’t have that much longer left to live. He was patient with the family as he was with ours. He and his team did everything to ensure they captured the best shots. The team was even picky about taking particular photos too. Please, whatever you do, feel free to contact me if you still have questions. We are so happy that we booked them as our vendors. I’ll even send you photos of us to show you their work.

  • Marc and his team were great to work with. As a planner myself, it is such a relief to work with professional yet creative vendors, and the GALA Video Team exceeded in all areas. They were mindful of the couple's wishes for the day and and captured lovely video moments. They have fun and friendly personalities that bring joy to the day, making it that much less stressful when we work together. Definitely recommend reaching out to Marc for your video needs.

  • Marc is a wonderful wedding photographer. He is friendly and easy to work with on our wedding day. He happened to be out of the country a few months before our wedding. We wish he could get back to us as quickly as we wanted to prior to our wedding. However, his service was awesome. His team and him arrived on time on our wedding day and gave us tips on how to post for photos. Our wedding day happened to be on a rainy day, he went back to the venue after few days to shot with his drome. We appreciate that a lot! He sent us our highlight video and wedding documentary 2 months after our wedding. I understand it takes time to edit videos, wish we could at least receive the highlight earlier. Thank you Marc and his team!

  • I dont know why we waited until last minute to hire our photographer and videographer. That being said, I also do not know how I got extremely lucky to find them! I requested a quote and received an answer like after 15 mins. We spoke with Marc and he was very patient with all the questions we had. We got the package which offered complementary engagement photoshoot. The price was very reasonable and there were no hidden fees. In the wedding day, Marc brought his team and they did a fantastic job and our family loved how professional they were. We got our sneak peek photos like after 2 days and we were thrilled with super epic photos. They are not just professional photographers, they also care about your big day and they want to make sure your wedding day goes as smooth as possible. Trust me you will be in safe hands, if you hire Marc and his team.

  • We couldn't ask for a better photography team. We found Marc & Gia through a referral. They're excellent to work with and are super responsive. We loved the pictures so we reached out to them. They were great because they were able to cater a special wedding package for us because of our small 20 person wedding. But the most impressive thing about them is their excellent pictures, the attention to detail, and the ease that they have with the camera. They provided us excellent engagement photos and beautiful wedding photos. They are one rare team that sends you your images so incredibly quickly (days after the wedding and they actually sent us our engagement photos within hours of the shoot). My husband could not stop raving about them. We enjoyed their company so much that we grabbed dinner with them after the engagement shoot! They are fun, super laid back, extremely responsive and quick getting us our photos! We could not have asked for a better photographer! Even my h... Read more

  • We just received our our wedding photos and video and are so thrilled. The documentary edit let’s us relive the wonderful day and the highlight video is perfect for sharing with friends. Now the photos, they were just amazing. We expected the best and we received the best. It was such a pleasure working with Marc and his team. They went out of there way, showed up early and made sure we were happy the entire day. I totally recommend Gala to everyone getting married.

  • If you're looking for a wedding photographer, Marc should definitely be one of your top choices, if not the choice. I found him on yelp 7 months before my wedding, and was stunned by the amazing reviews he got. Let me just say he deserves all of those 5-star reviews. He replied immediately when I reached out to him on yelp, and quoted me an incredible price for an 8-hour package. When I asked if he could customize the package to an 10-hour one, he came up with one fast. We had a chat over the phone, and his attitude was just so thorough and kind. My husband and I knew right from that phone call that we wanted him as our photographer. Fast forward to two months before the wedding. We wanted to take pre-ceremony pictures at San Francisco's city hall, but our ceremony was being held in Gilroy, so doing both in the same day would be incredibly stressful, if not impossible. In a panic, we emailed him and asked if there was any way we could split our pre-ceremony pictures to a different day ... Read more
