  • Marc and his team recently photographed my sisters wedding. We received the edits over the weekend and I can’t stop smiling! We love the photos and everything about them. I am not a professional photographer but I do dabble around and I can’t even start on how great of a photographer he is. Photography it’s not just having a nice camera, he understands composition, lighting and the most important thing knowing how to deal with his clients. Honestly, it felt as though he was one of us. I can honestly say that once I get married, I will hire him and his team to photograph my wedding.

  • In time, non-imposing and like the friends you never had. So sad they won’t be around to take more photos as life progresses in the manner that they did for our wedding. The photos are beautiful and full of personal actions shots as opposed to all of the posed stuff out there that overshadows the reality of the day.

  • I can't even begin to explain how great Marc was with our civil wedding photos. He was definitely on time and professional and the photos turned out fantastic- thanks to him. I highly recommend if you ever need a great photographer and the best rates to definitely contact Marc. He did an amazing job, and we couldn't have been more happy with the photos. Incredible experience and highly recommend!! Thanks Marc and his team!!

  • We don't live in San Francisco . . so I looked hard and long for a well-reviewed photographer. I narrowed it down to Gala and set everything up through emails. We were nervous because it was our wedding and we only had one shot. If Gala didn't show up or work out then (well you know). Gala (Marc and his colleague) were right on time. They explained everything, put us at ease and were with us for the entire City Hall wedding journey. They guided and prompted us just how to pose, where to shoot and made it fun. They even drove us to a beautiful nearby cafe for additional photos. They were sooooo enthusiastic. We have beautiful memories of our wedding thanks to Marc and recommend them for anyone that requires not only professional photography - but also a personalized and happy experience!

  • Marc and his team was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Professional, efficient, friendly and, most importantly, took the most fabulous photographs of our wedding, in challenging weather conditions (!) getting soaking wet in the process. Our pre-shoot (engagement) was hilarious and fun and for our wedding day he was almost invisible but captured the most precious moments. We could not have wished for a better photographer. Thank you, Marc.

  • Incredibly amazing service and the best photographers! The quality of my wedding photos were beyond crispy and sharp! Marc gave us extra edited photos as well. I didn't have an event planner but luckily Marc and his team helped me and my husband throughout the night for making sure everything goes well and smooth. We also got the photos way before the agreed date. We got way more edited photos than original agreement. Thanks One Production Haus. They will also be at my sisters wedding in 2019.

  • If you have read wedding blogs as much as I have, you know the photographer is the most important decision you will make for your wedding; and it's absolutely true! I was so nervous picking a photographer since I live in San Diego but the wedding was in San Francisco. I didn't have time to meet a photographer in person so I had to go off emails and phone interviews. After the sixth or seventh interview, I felt hopeless. Then I found Marc and Gala Photo and Films online and thought I would give them a try. After talking to him, he was so reassuring that he could provide us what we wanted at an AMAZING price. I told my now husband about all the choices for photographers and after weeks of corresponding with all of them he also thought they were the best choice. They were extremely prompt with responses for any questions we had and they recorded all of the photos we sent as suggestions. Two days before the wedding we arrived in San Francisco and our first order of business was to meet... Read more

  • GALA Photo & Films recently shot our wedding and they did a fantastic job. Marc and his team, Gia and Sal, were timely, professional, and most importantly, fun to work with. Every wedding has hectic moments, and Marc was an absolute pro at handling them - he helped us round up family members waiting for a photo, coordinate our entrance to the reception, and even pulled up videos on how to tie a half windsor knot at the last minute. We also had a chance to have a sneak peek at the final photos, and they look amazing. Of all the vendors that we worked with, GALA Photo & Films responded in a timely manner and helped allay so many of the concerns we had (along with giving us several helpful tips as well). They are a great team, and my wife and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

  • If I could give Marc & his team 10 stars, I would! Marc went above and beyond his responsibilities to actually function as my unofficial event coordinator, and ensured that everything ran like clockwork at my Anniversary Celebration! I would never consider using any other company for photography after the superlative experience I had with Marc & team! Thank you guys for making me feel like you were my family!

  • So many great things to say about Marc and his team! Marc was very accommodating. He came and met my fiancé, now husband and explained everything before we went forward with booking with him. After we met, there was no doubt I chose them to work with. They were on time the day of our wedding. Better yet early! As a bride you worry about EVERYTHING and Marc definitely made me feel confident he would not let me down! After watching my wedding video, I'm so pleased of the outcome. He captured every important moment. I can say I now have a friend working with Marc! He does not disappoint!!!

  • I can't​ thank Marc​ and his team enough for being so wonderful, patient and supportive. I was all over the place and he kept me at peace. Always smiling never a pushback​ for all that I​ put him through! Trust me when I say this... I was a real bridezilla but he really took the time to capture every moment and make sure we felt special. The photos are not out yet as he is working on making them perfect for us but I have no doubt... we will receive​ nothing but the best from them. I highly recommend them for any events you may have. He truly​ puts 200% to his work and is hardworking, honest and diligent. I was guilty of calling him early and not being there both days on time but he did not complain once. He even stayed ​longer than we had anticipated as my event did not start on time. Thank you to Marc and his team for making our wedding so memorable. This is just a shout out to you!!! I will be writing one more review telling you guys how wonderful the photos and videos... Read more

  • Marc did the photography for a recent event we had. His entire team was such a pleasure to work with. They made us feel comfortable and had great ideas for poses and places for pictures. They even did a drone video which will add a nice touch to our event highlights. The raw footage and pictures already look so great. We can't wait to see the edited photos and videos. I highly recommend GALA Photo and Films as a Photographer and Videographer for your next event!

  • Amazing is all I have to say.. You need someone who genuinely cares about your big day as much as you do.. Meet Marc! I have nothing but great things to say about him.. reason being he really values your time your day.. works hard to capture the best moments.. make sure not only to take pictures but capture memories. We had everyone raving about how amazing he was... I had hired his team for my photo and video but it felt more like they were my wedding coordinators.. that's how much hard work they put into their project!! I am so thankful to have met this team!! I wish I could get married over and over again just to have photos shoots with them lol!! I did get glimpses of the photos and video and they look amazing even without edits so can't wait for the final product! Thank you to this awesome team!! They really made us feel at ease and like we were working with friends and family!

  • Marc and his team were amazing to work with and we would absolutely use them again. We received so many compliments from our friends and family about our photographers and how thorough they were at taking photos of everything and everyone. Marc was friendly, responsive, and overall great to work with throughout. They took the time to line everyone up in our family for great group shots, helped adjust our timeline to maximize our photos, and made sure they took photos of all our events (first look, bouquet/garter toss, first dance and all dances, cake cutting, etc.). Marc was prompt as well and just really nice. I cannot stress that we would use Marc again if the occasion arose.

  • Marc and Gia are awesome! The pictures came out great and it was a lot of fun having them taken. They stayed longer and got us more photos than they had originally promised. The even surprised us with a beautiful canvas print for our house. Really nice team! Picking gala photo and films was a good move we made when setting up our wedding. They really made our wedding a memorable one.
