dreamy photos with a vibrant + glamorous feel
NON-TRADITIONAL WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY FOR THE WILD SPIRITS
the lady behind
Hey all, my name is Gabriella and I'm the owner of Sola Luna Photography. I'm a wedding photographer based in Santa Barbara, California and have been a taking pictures for almost 10 years now! My absolute hands down favorite part of this job is the relationships I establish with my clients. People are my #1 passion, and photography is a close 2nd. I'm super laid back and my goal of every session is to make my clients feel super comfortable and relaxed (you can read some reviews from happy clients here). I want you to enjoy the process just as much as you enjoy your photos and leave your session feeling more in love than you entered it. I'm based in Santa Barbara but photograph internationally. If you want to bring me along for your adventure, I'm always down! You can see where I'm planning on heading this year, here.
This is such a personal experience, it's important you like me! Let's see if we click.
WEDDING & ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY
based in santa barbara, california
Sola Luna Photography is a destination wedding and elopement photography brand, based in Santa Barbara, CA but always traveling worldwide. If you're looking for a photographic experience that feels authentic, intimate and FUN then I am the woman for you. If you're looking for something more traditional, formal, or polished, perhaps we're not the best fit.
Because, here, it's all about the moments. The messy, silly, sexy, glamorous, soft, tender, playful moments. I understand humans are dynamic and multifaceted beings with many sides to themselves, all of which I choose to show. I prioritize the photographer-client relationship above all else and believe that vulnerability grows true connection and meaningful art.
I also firmly believe that this should be your day and your day only. Wanna get married on a mountain in sparkles and heels? I'm here for it. Or maybe do an engagement session in the desert of Morocco, camel in tow? Hell yeah. Or do you have a family of 500 and you're all packing into uncle Bob's backyard for a big ceremony and family celebration? Down down down.
Truly, all I care about is you. That you are doing what YOU want. Let me preserve a precious piece of yourself through my art. It would be an honor.
"Five stars doesn’t come close to capturing the degree of perfection in Gabriella’s photo aesthetic, professionalism and constant willingness to go above and beyond.
My fiancé was actually pretty anxious about taking photos (he’s not one to enjoy being in front of a camera) but Gabi somehow worked her magic and made him feel comfortable right away. She knows how to work with different personalities and was able to beautifully capture very real and candid moments which completely surpassed my already high expectations. My fiancé was particularly blown away by her ability to make the whole process as easy and fluid as possible.
Not only is Gabi incredibly talented, but she’s also a beautiful, intuitive person that genuinely cares about her clients and pours her heart into everything she does. We love working with her, and absolutely adore our engagement photos."
