  • Summer was the photographer for 2 weddings I was in several years ago and did fantastic work, so when I got engaged myself I already knew that I wanted her for our wedding. The quality of her photography speaks for itself in her photo gallery, but beyond that I really appreciate her ability to capture amazing candids without being intrusive AT ALL. I've been to several weddings where the photographer is in the middle of everything, bossing people around to pose for pictures, etc. - and one of the reasons I chose Summer is because she is the exact opposite of this. She is also easy to work with in general - personable, responsive, and flexible. Her pricing is very reasonable, too. I had a destination wedding so paid her travel costs in addition to the photography package we had agreed upon, and even with that I paid less and got more out of it than would be the case if I had gone with the "best deals" for photography near our venue. Highly recommend!!

  • Summer was fantastic to work with and she takes stunning photos. She is so kind and professional. I love every single one of the engagement, bridal, and wedding photos that she took. There have been innumerable comments and praises from my guests about how amazing the pictures are. I really cannot thank her enough. If you need anymore convincing, check out her website. The photos will take your breath away.

  • Summer Gibbs is truly remarkable. My husband and I did not have what one would call a traditional wedding. We were married at The Jalousie Plantation in Saint Lucia. I found Summer online and instantly fell in love with her style of work. We live in Georgia and Summer lives in Virginia and the first time I laid eyes on Summer was 8am on the morning of our wedding when she so graciously met my husband and myself and our small group at the ship port where our cruise had docked that morning. We had just short of 8 hours on Saint Lucia before we had to be back on the cruise ship. Let me just say planning a destination wedding is no easy thing. It is extremely stressful coordinating the day of your wedding with people who don't know you and are thousands of miles away on an island you have never step foot on before. Not one single second did I have to worry about Summer. From the first time we spoke on the phone I knew everything would be handled perfectly. Never in one million years would ... Read more

  • Summer was amazing! We had a hectic non-traditional wedding in the Shenandoah mountains and she was so flexible with all the chaos. She is definitely a very skilled photographer. We had pretty bad weather for our outdoor wedding (rainy, misty, foggy) and she somehow managed to capture everything and make the pictures look dream like and beautiful. Since we got married in the mountains, nothing was very close together (where I got my hair done, where I got ready, and location of the wedding ceremony) and Summer had no problem driving around to meet me at the various locations. She was so nice and is great at listening to what your individual needs/preferences are. Also, after seeing plenty of friends' photos from their wedding I think Summer is very reasonably price in the wedding industry for her level of talent. I would definitely recommend her not just for her photography but also because she's super nice and fun to talk to!

  • We found Summer Gibbs photography by searching online for photographers that would travel to sites outside the US. We fell in love after looking through her website, and were even more pleased when we contacted Summer! Not only was she flexible, knowledgeable and organized, she somehow managed to make the photography aspect the LEAST stressful of all our wedding experiences -- quite a feat being the one thing we valued most highly! The experience (particularly the trash the dress session) was wonderful and I think the beauty of our pictures reflect both her skillful eye and how she was able to put us at ease throughout the sessions. She also has been very responsive after the wedding. We continue to receive wonderful compliments on the photos, and look at them frequently as she truly captured the essence of the weekend! I would recommend Summer highly, particularly to those doing a destination-typed wedding!

  • Summer was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had been looking for the perfect photographer and as soon as we found her website we knew she was the best. Summer met with us right away and suggested we do a bridal portrait session before the wedding, and she was amazing! The wedding day she arrived perfectly on time and took the most beautiful pictures. She is not only talented, but has beautiful classy taste. If you are looking for the best photographer and quality she is the one to call.

  • I can't say enough about Summer Gibbs photography......just look at our wedding pictures, they take your breath away! Summer was not only professional but a friend, she made it very comfortable and fun! I couldn't be any more happier with our wedding pictures or our overall experience. Friends were amazed by our pictures and thought that looked like they were right out of a magazine (and if Summer can make me look like a model, she's a GOD because I am not photogenic). And I must say, I haven't seen better wedding pictures out there! I promise, you will not be disappointed!

  • Years before my wedding I saw some photos Summer did for a friend, and knew that she'd be at the top of my list. We used Summer for our entire wedding weekend, including Rehearsal Dinner and 10 hours the day of the wedding (which ended up more like 12 when the band never really stopped playing -- and she was such a trooper). Summer is incredible at capturing not just the typical posed standard photos, but goes above and beyond with candids that truly get the emotion of the day. She documented so much feeling in my husband and me, our families and our guests that I really don't see in most wedding photographers. On top of that, she is an awesome value and was flexible in building our package. I can't say how important it is that we have all of our photos on CDs -- that's rarer than one would think and the prices were very reasonable. Summer even helped us get slightly around a rule in our church of only one shot during the ceremony...we have three, thanks to her! I'd absolutely recommen... Read more

  • I found this photographer online and was a little concerned not knowing her and being from another country, but seemed impressed with her destination work. I have to say she was totally amazing and fulfilled all my dreams of wedding photography. We now have the most amazing set of photos to look back on and remember that special day. Nothing was forced or posed and her quality of work is second to none. I couldn't recommend her enough, she was worth every penny. BOOK SUMMER GIBBS!! :)

  • Summer did an amazing job on my engagement and wedding photos! We had terrible weather for both days, but she managed to make the photos come out beautifully! And since we had such terrible weather, she even offered to do an additional photo shoot in the Spring for FREE! We ended up not doing the free shoot though because we were so pleased with the photos that she had taken. She is an amazing person and an even more amazing photographer. We get constant comments about how wonderful our engagement and wedding photos are, we cannot recommend her enough!
