"Geneva is amazing to work with..."


"Geneva is amazing to work with from start to finish. We've shot with her a few times over the years and it is always so easy, fun and the pictures are incredible. If you don't know what to do or how to pose, don't even worry - Gen guides you through the whole shoot and you almost forget there is even a camera! The pictures always turn out even better than I imagined. She truly knows how to capture the moment and love between partners. We are SO excited to have her as our wedding photographer. Book her and you won't regret it!"

"Her personality & professionalism are top tier..."

Genevieve is professional and extremely organized and was the perfect choice as my wedding photographer. Her personality shines through her website and it was clear that we were visually aligned. Leading up to the day she sent multiple surveys and we met on zoom to gather information. This was extremely helpful for me because I wasn't sure of the process or what I wanted. She helped me figure it out! In the days leading up, she checked in and knowing that she was double checking everything and checking in with the planner and getting all the timing squared away helped relieve my stress. The day of went super smoothly, she got all the photos I wanted and her vision and direction made me super confident that the photos would turn out great. Her personality and professionalism are top tier and I highly recommend her for a wedding, elopement or any other special moment you want visually recorded.

"The photos are always stunning..."

I’ve done multiple sessions with Gen and she’s amazing! She takes the time to get to know what you’re looking for and ensuring it’s a mutual fit. The photos are always stunning and the experience is so seamless. I would highly recommend Gen for not only your wedding but also for smaller and more intimate experiences as well.
