"I am beyond grateful and feel so lucky that my husband and I were able to work with Gabi as our wedding photographer! She truly has a gift that not all photographers have and has fine tuned her craft to create such beauty in every project she undertakes. You will be in great hands! She was beyond just a photographer. Gabi was a terrific wedding guide full of ideas and tips, captured our favorite moments and made them art, and made everyone comfortable and entertained while taking photos. You will get those beautiful, natural, in the moment kind of photos that are unique to you and the love of your life. You’d be choosing a true professional who is committed to providing you with the photos of your dreams. 10/10 would recommend :)"

"It was a pleasure to have met Gabi Gurl! She has undeniable talent as an artist and photographer. She was the perfect match to our crazy personalities.

Gabi captured every aspect of the Wedding Day and portrayed the beautiful feelings and emotions felt that day. I will cherish these photos and I am forever grateful for Gabi! I strongly recommend using the friendly and talented Gabi! I’m sending her all the love from across the county"

"Gabriella is just an amazing talented girl! My now fiancé contacted her for a surprise engagement photo shot in New York and she did above and beyond to help him accomplish his plan. She is very professional, dedicated and passionate with her work! It was very cold to be out taking pictures but she did an amazing job and the fact that she was able to capture this incredible even in my life and made me look pretty after all the crying is just incredible. Gabriella is very consistent and was always in touch with us sending us pictures and updates on them. I just don’t have enough words to thank her for being part of one of the best days of my life. She is fun to work with and her smile makes anyone feel comfortable and have a good time while she captures that"

"Gabi is the absolute BEST. I seriously don’t know what I would do without her. She made my wedding and engagement shoot dreams come true, and then some! I appreciate her careful attention to detail, her ability to capture beautiful landscapes, and the precious moments in between. I will use Gabi for ANY other photography needs that may come my way. I highly recommend you do as well!"

"Gabriella is an absolute dream- as are the images that she beautifully captures. Gabriella photographed both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and she managed to capture all the moments that mattered most through a warm, dreamy, and ethereal lens. Her eye is incredibly and her images tell stories.

In addition to her obvious talent, Gabriella is the loveliest person, a great listener, reliable, truly cares about her clients, and a very adventurous soul. She was very flexible with our multiple wedding postponements (thanks, covid) and was supportive the whole way through. She’s also incredibly patient. My husband is not one to like being in front of the camera yet somehow Gabriella worked her magic and made him feel more comfortable.

If you’re looking for a wedding/ couples photographer and want beautiful images while having a great time taking them, work with Gabriella. She’s the absolute best."

"Gabi is a dreeeaaaaammm! I found her on instagram and was drawn to the emotion and soulfulness her images expressed. And then I got to know her a bit more and fell even more in love with her work. She is so fun, adventurous, kind, and passionate about what she does.

My husband and I hired her for a couples sessions in Santa Barbra and she exceeded our expectations. She let us be us and captured our relationship better than we could have imagined. Her artful eye, sweet soul, and fun energy made for an incredible experience. We will 100000% be having Gabi photograph many more chapters in our lives. Love you girl"

"Gabriella is a pleasure to work with. She is very patient, listens, is a great communicator, and is excellent at her craft. She did an amazing job making my husband and I feel comfortable during her photography sessions (it was our first time being photographed and we are awkward people!). I highly recommend Sola Luna Photography and will not hesitate to have her photograph us again!"

"Gabi is an absolutely amazing photographer! But even more importantly she is a wonderful human who makes everything fun and light hearted. On the morning of my wedding when things can be stressful, she helped put me at ease just by being a friend to chat and laugh with.

She puts her heart and soul into her work and I would 10000000x recommend her to anyone. She has captured in photos the exact feel of our wedding and I'm forever grateful xoxo"

"Where to start - Gabi is wonderful. She managed to capture the magic and emotion we felt on our wedding day and went above and beyond with the shots she took. Her energy is contagious and she was so eager to work with our families. We had a busy weekend with family and friends and Gabi managed to keep up with everyone and even got the (clearly hungover) groom and bride out for a hike post-wedding for some more magic.

 

Thank you for not only being our photographer, but an integral part of ensuring our wedding memories last forever. For practical folks - Gabi is organized, eager, creative, energetic, compassionate, thorough, talented, and lovely to work with. Anyone would be lucky to have her capture life's biggest moments"

"The first thing I told my now husband after our engagement photo session with Gabi was “Can we hire her to photograph every major milestone in our life together?”.

Gabi met with us in our home to get to know us a bit before our session and so quickly the ice was broken from being strangers to almost friends! She is hands-on, interactive and not afraid to explore into unknown places and areas just to capture the perfect shot in the perfect lighting. We were in the Pismo Sand Dunes and Gabi was sliding down mountains of sand just to capture us from a certain angle. This girl assimilates to any climate and works with your vision while also creating her own to bring the moment alive. So much so that being around her presence makes the entire experience even more fun!

This girl is young and vibrant - she knows her stuff and she’s a pleasure to work with, especially if you’re new to being photographed and want a photographer who can guide you and make you feel comfortable.

Thank you so much for the amazing memories you captured for us, Gabi."

"Before you read anything else, you should know
outright that Gabi is an unbelievably talented, highly
professional, and yet wonderfully fun person who
takes astoundingly beautiful, natural, and organic
photos. If you're getting married anytime soon, you
should hire her. End of story.


It's hard to find the words to accurately describe the
love and appreciation we have for Gabi in capturing the
magic of our wedding day. My husband and I got
married near Roanoke, VA, tucked away in the Blue
Ridge Mountains with 200 of our closest friends;
needless to say, this was no small feat. Gabi captured
near every tear, laugh, hug, kiss, and crazy dance
move throughout our day; truly, she did the work that a
team of 3-4 photographers would do.


Not only that, but we could never have imagined just
how stunning these photos would be. Dylan and I are
not exactly always comfortable in front of the camera
and certainly have little experience with how to act
during such sessions. Gabi helped make the photos
with just us, our families, and our wedding party
incredibly intimate and light-hearted. In fact, these are
some of our favorite memories of the day. She
somehow strikes an inspiring balance between being
goofy and fun, yet authoritative when she needs to be;
this should not be overlooked. She wrangled our entire
extended families for group photos during cocktail
hour and then seamlessly transitioned to golden hour
photos of the two of us. During our reception, Gabi
was out on the dance floor dancing alongside
everyone else while STILL capturing all of the
craziness around us.


In full disclosure, we have known Gabi since she was a
small kid, so this made having her with us on our
wedding day EXTRA special. Although, even if we
hadn't known her, she would still be the best decision
we could have made. The joy we feel looking at our
photos and reliving our day is truly indescribable.
Thank you, Gabi, from the bottom of our hearts!"

"Gabi did an incredible job photographing my fiancee and me for our engagement shoot. We did 4 separate locations/styles in 1 day and every single one was better than the last. One of the most fun days of our life together and Gabi did the perfect and very artful job of simultaneously keeping the energy going at the right times and leaving us to be ourselves at others. The photos turned out wonderfully and aligned to the styles we had requested. It’s not often that an all day photo shoot goes this well AND is this much fun - and for that we have Gabi to thank"

"Gabriella did our honeymoon photoshoot and it was an absolutely amazing experience. She was very communicative beforehand and met us at the site we chose. She took us to all the most beautiful spots and gave us such helpful and creative cues - we were not super comfy in front of the camera but thanks to her we are now! By the end of shoot, we felt we had made a new friend. :) She delivered the most gorgeous photos in the best turnaround time we’ve ever experienced with any photographer. We cannot recommend her enough and hope to work with her again!"

"Gabriella shot our engagement, and she was truly the most kind, considerate, and lovely human to work with. She was able to make my fiancé feel comfortable during one of the most special moments a couple can have. During the actual proposal, she was working with me through text to assure the perfect moment was captured. After that, she made us both feel extremely comfortable as we shot a full shoot. She worked with us to find a vibe and style that fit us personally. I cannot recommend her enough. She goes the extra mile and it shows!"

"I found Gabi randomly on Facebook back in the
summer of 2019 while looking for a photographer to
use for engagement photos and also for my
wedding. She drove all the way to Temecula, CA to
spend the entire day with myself and my now wife
Kaycee doing our engagement photo shoot. It was
seriously one of the most beautiful days ever and
Gabi was able to capture the magic perfectly. During
that day, we all clicked so well like we had been
friends for years. She made us feel comfortable
being in front of the camera, she was extremely
professional, fun, and made everything feel so
natural. Everything went so well that day that not
only were we beyond excited to have her shoot our
wedding, but my wife ended up asking Gabi to do a
last minute boudoir shoot which completely took me
by surprise. She captured my wife in the most
beautiful and sensual way possible! I even got to be
included in some of the photos which was really
special. Not even 2 months later, she was back in
Temecula shooting our wedding. By this point we
were all extremely comfortable with each other. That
comfortability I think is key to getting even better
shots and capturing the perfect moments. She was She was
very interactive with our guests, families, and even
vendors. This made for amazing pictures throughout
the entire evening. At one point she was in the
middle of the dance floor dancing with everyone
taking pictures simultaneously lol. Some of those
"action" shots were some of the best ones looking
back at it.


Fast forward 2 years, my wife and I had a beautiful
baby girl and wanted to do a family photo shoot.
Who do you think we called?..yep..Gabi. She was
so thrilled and excited that we had stayed in touch
with her and wanted her to do such a special shoot
for us. We planned to meet her in Santa Barbara, CA
at a state park which provided an absolutely stunning
backdrop and scenery. It turned out to be an
extremely stressful day trying to get to the photo
shoot on time with a fussy baby, tons of traffic, and
other speed bumps along the way. But we finally got
there and with the limited time we had left, everything
just started falling into place like it had 2 years prior.
She made us feel comfortable with our newborn in
front of the camera and the stress was gone. We got
the photos back and I can't even begin to tell you
how happy we are with them. She captured some
absolutely beautiful and precious moment with me,
my wife, and baby girl. These are pictures and
memories I know my wife and I will absolutely
treasure and look back on forever.

Needless to say, Gabi is incredible and worth every
penny. She really builds a relationship with her clients
which I know turn into friendships later on. She was
there for some of the biggest and most important
moments in our lives and was able to create stories
through her pictures. We will obviously think of Gabi
for any future milestones or even just as a referral to
other friends and family. It would definitely be worth
your while to hire Gabi as your photographer for any
occasion"

“Gabriella is a joy to work with. She is able to simultaneously piece elements together to create a moment, and allow what’s already there to shine though. Working with her is seamless as she’s organized, communicative, detailed and an excellent listener. She’s also incredibly creative and was able to add ideas and solutions that made the end result better than I could’ve ever imagined.”
