Kind Words

"I loved having Gemma as my photographer! I was worried about how to pose, looking good, and having good movement, but Gemma captured it all so perfectly with her great prompts and ideas! She was super fun and made us feel super super comfortable from the start. Definitely recommend!" - Ariana
