There are simply not enough words to describe how talented, professional, and kind Gina is. Our wedding was her first Indian wedding and she handled it like an absolute pro. She took the time to learn the fine details of our culture and traditions so she could capture it perfectly. On our wedding day, she even fixed my broken necklace and managed to remove a stain from my husband's white suit. She was enthusiastic and organized the entire weekend. And when we finally received our pictures, to say we were blown away was an understatement. The most breathtaking photography and editing and she organized the pictures in a way that seasoned Indian wedding photographers never bother to do. She was by far our favorite vendor. Hire her, it's the best decision you'll make!!” - Anu S.

"How do I even begin to express how amazing it was to work with Gina?! I fell in love with Gina’s portfolio, and as soon as we met I knew she had to be our photographer--she was the only one that we met with. We met for coffee and what was supposed to be a half an hour meeting turned into two hours talking to someone who felt like an old friend. Gina has such a kind soul, and a way of connecting with people that makes it easy to see why she is able to take such beautiful pictures of them. I was able to open up to Gina about my insecurities, my fears about the wedding day and how I would look--and she was ready to listen and to help me work through them. Gina made sure she knew exactly what my husband and I were looking for, and that we were all on the same page. She manages the perfect blend of professionalism and warmth, and makes you feel like you are in perfectly capable hands. We decided to trust Gina implicitly and I am so so glad that we did--our engagement photos turned out absolutely out of this world. Posing for pictures can feel so awkward, but with Gina behind the lens, we really had a blast. We ended the night with glasses of wine and hours of good conversation, because that’s who Gina is. She’s connection and personal touches and comforting words. She is able to bring out the beauty+love in every couple. I honestly feel like we could not have gotten married without Gina. She helped set the entire timeline for our wedding day, and was there to answer every email and text. The day of our wedding, Gina was a calm influence who helped move the day along. Looking at our wedding photos, I am blown away by her eye and attention to detail. We spent so much time going through them and saying “how did she GET that shot?” I have never felt more beautiful than through Gina’s lens. Gina and Matt captured our wedding perfectly, and were amazing additions to our day. They took time to speak to our guests, to get the important photos, and to get the views of our wedding that we missed in the blur of it all. Gina’s editing is gorgeous, with just the right mix of grit. She goes through every frame to make sure they’re all perfect, and that they all tell the story of your love. I sincerely cannot recommend Gina highly enough. She is the best at what she does." -Emsie B.

"Three words to describe Gina at GE Creative. Professional, talented, and badass! Gina was a fantastic addition to our wedding entourage. She always took the necessary time, and care to make sure that the photos from our wedding were amazing. My favorites were the ones of the boys! Gina will go above and beyond for you on your special day. This may include but is not limited to, climbing on things (to get the best photo angles), tracking down emergency dress repair services, and generally being a delight to have at the wedding. I could rave for days about Gina as a photographer, but I know if your reading this your busy planning a wedding likely so I will make it brief. If you want a stellar photographer consider reaching out to Gina. I am sure once you meet her you will be sold." -Andrew M.

"Gina is an amazing photographer, very professional, and very easy to work with. Gina listened to our preferences and was able to find great outdoor spots for our wedding photos, and was able to capture many special moments throughout our wedding day. She is very experienced, and this was obvious throughout the day. Gina is very organized, and was able to complete our large family photos efficiently and quickly. Gina provided us with so many great photos, we are so appreciative of her hard work." -Heidi W.

Gina Emmer
Owner | Photographer

Hey there!  ✨I’m Gina, a staunch friend, curious conversationalist, let’s do things right but have-fun-with-it kind of person. I’ve officially spent half my life serving others and each role I’ve played has cultivated a devotion to detail and a desire to provide a genuine experience. From farms to fine dining, labor to tech savvy support - each job I’ve held has only increased my ability to meet people where they’re at, connect, and create an all out+all in mentality.

I show up for the people who put their trust in me! Beyond pretty photos (many people can deliver that) — I have HIGH expectations for your day of experience and how you FEEL. You can often find me doing a little extra, because it matters, and why not make things the best they can possibly be? Midwest work ethic through and through. Just ask the people who’ve worked with me before. 

I think the best photographers are the ones with a lot of life participation from a multitude of arenas. How else can they read a room of strangers and document them like close friends? Relatability is crucial to the convo. I often joke I’ve been adopted into dozens of families over all these years.

Camaraderie creates connection which creates core memories. And I’m in the business of facilitating and documenting those moments. Reach out if you want someone who does the most, just so you don’t have to!
