From every detail of your day, the tears in your families eyes when they see you in your dress, to your crazy moves on the dance floor; I am there to preserve every perfect moment.
Your wedding is so much more than just a fun party, it's a celebration of love and a day that you want to look back on in 50 years and be able to relive every emotion.
I'm Gillian, a digital + film wedding and portrait photographer in Southern California. I have 2 littles, L&B, who are my world and I am married to my high school crush. (he had no clue who I was then though)
The ability to preserve our most precious moments in life is what drew me to photography. We all have one chance to tell our stories and to create ever lasting family heirlooms.
Follow me on Instagram @landb_photography for daily posts of my crazy littles and beautiful clients!
.Why L&B Photography?
- Not only am I experienced, I truly care about your wedding day. Past bides say I have a way of making the day seem less stressful and help them find the fun in wedding photos. I will make sure your Grandma gets the shots she wants as well as you get the romantic photos you want. I believe that the beauty lies in your details and will artistically style and photograph them so that you can remember them forever. Even when I'm dancing like a dork at your reception, I'm still capturing all those memorable moments that you don't ever want to forget. Your wedding day is one of the biggest chapters in your story and I want to help you tell it through beautiful imagery.
How do I book with L&B Photography?
-All I require is a signed contract and a $100 retainer (for sessions} or a 25% retainer for weddings.
What is a "lifestyle session" like with L&B Photography?
- My sessions are easy going and fun. I love to capture candid real moments. Sessions with L&B are the opposite of posed or rigid. Through "unposing" and easy cues, I allow fun and love to shine through. I encourage kids to pick flowers, play, run through waves etc. Laughter and movement are my favorite things to see during a session. I want each session to tell a story of your love, family, day, etc.
When is the best time to photograph?
-I like to shoot my sessions as the sunrises or within the 2 hours prior to sunset. They are the best times to get photos in pretty soft light.
What kind of editing is done to my photos?
-All images in your final gallery are artistically edited to match my "light and airy" portfolio. Each image has color/exposure correction, straightening, sharpening and other basic retouching done. Eye/teeth brightening and blemish editing is done as needed.
What is a digital gallery?
-A digital gallery link is sent to your from Pixieset. It is password protected so only you or those you give the password to can view your images. The link takes you to your own gallery of images. From there you can pick favorites, download, share and even order prints all from your own computer.
How long will it take to get my images?
-For session it takes around 2-3 weeks to get your final gallery. For weddings it takes around 8 weeks to get your final gallery.
How many images will I get?
-For sessions I always say 45 or more. For weddings I like to say 50 images per hour or more
What do the keepsake box and usb look like?
- Your proof prints and usb will come in a beautiful glass box with gold trim. Your usb is a gorgeous rose gold and clear acrylic usb with all of your edited images on it.
Can I post my pictures on social media?
-YES! Please share away! Why take pictures if you cant show them off, right? All of my weddings and sessions come with a full print release.
