the GEM Photo Experience

The goal of GEM is to provide an experience that sets it apart from your average photography. From getting back to brides within 1 hour during office hours. Acts of kindness through out the planning process. GEM goes above and beyond from beginning to beyond the wedding. 

 editing process

Raina treats every photo taken as an author to a novel treats each word. Her goal is to bring out the best in each moment no matter how big or small. 

 photography aesthetic

GEM delivers the best of a complete story. GEM is know for providing photos that will translate for generations to come. Trendy is for other photographers, GEM is about classic beauty, Your grand-children will cringe over your clothes but hopefully not your photos.

GEM's DESIRE FOR YOUR DAY

GEM believes it is your day and Raina's job is to tell that story, Every wedding is different and GEM is designed to display that with quality. There is slight direction for telling the story with the best light. GEM never treats your day as a way to make Raina look good but you and your loved ones.

Each moment tells a beautiful story.

Your visual Legacy

leg•a•cy

: something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past

I love opening my parent's wedding album. I feel like I am there with each turning of the page. If I want to see my sister's wedding photos I have to hunt down a CD/DVD player and look through 500 photos. Your wedding is one day , but something that is so special  you want be able to sit down on your anniversary and look at what's on  your coffee table or book shelf . Instead of hoping Goodwill has a DVD player for sale. 

It's more than one Day

ALBUMS

GEM strongly believes  in printing  photos. Whether it is canvas to hang your wall or a 5x7 for your desk. It really is the best way to preserve your memories.
