  • After interviewing several photography vendors, it was a no-brainer to choose Marc and Gia to be the ones capturing our wedding celebration. From the moment we spoke with Marc on the phone, we could feel his transparency and good nature. While we live overseas, our wedding was in San Jose, CA. Marc worked with us very closely and made the process very easy, removing all of the long-distance hassles. He did not treat us a client but more like a friend and relative. He listened to our requests and criteria and provided useful recommendations in finding locations for photoshoot prior to our ceremony. We met Marc and Gia for the first time on-location for the photoshoot session. All we can say is that they were more pleasant and friendly than we had anticipated.
