Hi there! Thank you so much for your interest in L&B Photography. I am Gillian, a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Orange County, Ca. From your beautiful wedding day to your growing family, I am here to preserve todays moments and create tomorrows heirlooms. I love to create soft, romantic and light filled imagery that captures authentic and memorable moments that can be cherished forever. We only have one opportunity to tell our stories. Allow me to help tell your story through timeless photos that you will love for a lifetime.
I am a mother to two crazy littles, L&B and wife to my high school crush, James. We are an adventurous couple that love to hike in Joshua Tree and paddle board on the ocean. We can also be found wandering around Disneyland, churros in hand.
I have been artistic since a very young age. I danced, cheered, was in musical theater and had every girls dream job of being a performer for Disney (at 3 of their 6 resorts) and I am a licensed hairstylist. Through all of it, I always carried a camera with me (especially before camera phones). I never wanted a beautiful moment to pass me by. I have been a professional photographer since 2012 and continue to grow and learn more about my craft.
I am upbeat and bubbly, love a good glass of wine, and watch The Office and Parks and Rec and Schitt’s Creek way too much.
-Gillian was awesome to work with! I found her on Instagram and loved her work. She made us feel as comfortable as possible with the engagement shoot (that felt super awkward) but the pictures were AMAZING. She is so bubbly and friendly that you feel like it's just a friend that is taking photos of you. The day of the wedding she wasn't afraid to get all up in the plants at our venue to get the right angle and got caught in the thorns a few times (NBD for her). From what I've seen of the Instagram posts, I can't wait to get our pictures back. I would highly recommend Gillian!
-Gillian is fantastic. Absolutely HIRE HER. She has done about four or five photo shoots for me and all her work always WOWs me and takes my breathe away. She always goes above and beyond. She is very understanding and listens to what her customers want. Her works shows years of expertise and wisdom. She is very easy to work with and cares about her customers.
-If I could give them 10 stars, I would! Absolutely beautiful work. I am so grateful we chose L&B Photography to capture our big day. Gillian is so sweet and was incredible on our big day. Including helping with a last minute tweak to my hair! Her talent is initially visible in the images on her social media accounts and website. Her skills and knowledge in photography are shown from beginning conversations to the final album sent. I would recommend L&B Photography to anyone looking for a kind and talented photographer to capture any and all of their special days. Thank you for capturing and sharing our day with us!
- I cannot say enough wonderful things about L & B photography! Gillian Martin has a talent for capturing special moments and is amazing with children. We have used L & B photography services for multiple photo shoots and keep coming back for more
-We planned to do family pictures and my family had a wonderful experience. Gillian is very fun and energetic. She was great to my kids especially my youngest who is on the spectrum. At one point he was so comfortable with her they held hands. It made me so happy to see him at ease. I plan to use her services again and again.
-Let me just start off by saying, Gillian couldn't have been more professional! She was so sweet and such a doll to have around for the wedding. She is as professional as they come and her work is amazing! Her eye for pictures are so great. Such candid photos and really found the realism in each look! I'd give her 20 stars if I could! We will be telling everyone about her and also using her over and over again. Truly thank u Gillian! We appreciate you in every way! Looking forward to you being the camera artist, through all of our steps through life
