A Practical Wedding (APW) Blog Feature!

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

Siobhan & Ryan’s Port Costa School House Wedding (Sneak Peek)

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. ❤️

Lauren & Jason’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement

This past June, Lauren and Jason flew me up to San Francisco to photograph their city hall elopement. It would be just the three of us (I love, love being the only witness), with Lauren and Jason planning a party later in the year with family and friends. We had such an epic day together, we sat in the car afterwards with joy-hangovers, completely beat, but grateful. I mean, at one point we had cheeseburgers and waffles at a diner overlooking a fog drenched ocean — I just can’t think of anything else that makes me smile more.

Rachel & Chris’ Fig House (Highland Park) Wedding

I love this wedding from April of last year at The Fig House. Chris & Rachel’s style is effortless and they definitely chose the venue to match. The Fig House’s self-described style is “a contemporary spin on art-deco with a nod to the rich history of Highland Park” (Los Angeles). They spent their week-day wedding surrounded by their closest family and friends and closed out the night with a killer dance party, with songs that Chris hand-picked for a playlist for the entire celebration. Not bad for a Thursday night!

Cindy & Eric’s Joshua Tree National Park Elopement

We’re coming up on the 2 year anniversary of these two, and since this elopement has always been a favorite of mine, I thought I’d share it on the blog today. Cindy & Eric already had an upcoming wedding planned in the mid-west, where they were also relocating for Eric’s new job. But Joshua Tree was too special to them and they wanted to say good-bye their own way, so they decided to elope there on the down-low. It was just the two of them, an officiant, and me as their witness and photographer.

Kiva Pledge Update / Happy International Women’s Day

This last July, I (Gina Clyne Photography), made a pledge to make a Kiva loan to a woman in another country for every wedding that I book. You can read that initial blog post here.

I have made 30 loans since I made that pledge, and I hope to keep doing so for as long as I am out there shooting weddings. It is extremely important for me to contribute to someone’s chances of making a better life for themselves and their families. People are suffering and struggling everyday, so if you could, why not offer a bit of relief while on the hard path to realizing a goal?

A Year Ago Today…

I wrote the following stream-of-consciousness on my Facebook a few days ago and I gave it some thought and decided that it should live here on my blog as well.

A year ago today, I shot Sia‘s wedding in Palm Springs. It was a day with wicked weather that started with heavy rain and lightning bolts that threatened flash floods through the desert resort town. It all seemed so sudden and strange at the time, but I suppose that is what I’ve come to understand about life.

A wedding aboard! (India here I come!)

Above image: A double exposure photograph I found when I searched “Goa, India” on Pinterest. Photographer unknown.

I’m so happy to have booked a wedding abroad last week! I will be shooting Nikki & Rohit’s wedding in Goa, India this mid-December and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s times like these where I have to reel myself in from packing every (digital and film) camera I own.
