Patty Schemel was at the epicenter of the Seattle grunge scene in the 1990’s. She is best known as the drummer of the alternative rock band Hole. For this special Hear Sunday event, Schemel read from her new memoir Hit So Hard (Da Capo Press, 2017) and performed covers of favorite songs with Nina Gordon, Louise Post and Eva Gardner as the Ladies of the Canyon.
This month I became a sponsor of A Practical Wedding, and they did a wonderful write up on their blog about what I do, to introduce me to their readership!

“If at this point you’re starting to wonder if this Gina Clyne person is possibly not real, but an avatar of the perfect wedding photographer, well, I wouldn’t blame you. But rest assured that I’ve gotten to meet and hang with Gina in person, and she is every bit as excellent as all of this and more.” — APW Blog
September was a tireless month of travel and photo shoots, but the weekend of September 23rd I was surrounded by good friends and had the honor of photographing Ryan & Siobhan’s wedding in Port Costa, N. California. When I find myself this busy, I tell myself that I will sleep later, later, later, after all the photos are taken. Here’s a little sneak peek from their Port Costa school house wedding for now. Love you guys, look how young and alive you are. ❤️
I was away in Jamaica 🇯🇲 for 5 days this past September shooting Alex & Howard’s wedding at The Rockhouse Hotel in Negril. I’m still recovering from all the dancing I witnessed (perma-grin won’t unstick) and I freely floated in the Caribbean Sea and watched as tropical rains came and went. But really my favorite thing was being on Howard’s home country and meeting his kind family and closest friends and seeing the happiness on Alex’s face when she got to show her American family and friends a country that has grown close to her heart. Thank you again for including me in the party! Here’s a sneak peek of images (and a video of dancing I shot!) for you all. ✌️ Bless Up! & Respect!
In May of last year (2016), I was asked to photograph some production stills for a documentary film called Dalya’s Other Country, directed/produced by Julia Meltzer, and co-produced by Mustafa Rony Zeno. One of my photographs ended up as the poster for the film, and that film is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime!
The film follows 4 years of life changes for Dalya & her mom Rudayna as they arrive in Los Angeles from Aleppo, Syria.
