My name is Gian and I’m a Fine Art Wedding and Portrait Photographer based in Virginia Beach, VA.  I grew up in the Philippines but have been here in the states since 1997.  I am 32 years old and am happily married to my beautiful wife (Pattee) of two years.  I’m a HUGE Star Wars nerd I enjoy traveling, hiking, and the great outdoors. I’m also obsessed with the NBA and basketball in general.  

Like many other creatives, I love a good brew of coffee and beer!  My default food of choice when dining out is a good burger (over Sushi) which Pattee hates, but tolerates me for :)   I love to create amazing art and capture unique stories.  

My love affair with photography started in 2009 when I picked up my first DSLR camera.  I've never looked back since and began pursuing weddings and other professional work in 2012.   I wouldnt be where I am today if it wasn’t for my amazing clients.  You know who you are!  You’re my ultimate inspiration and thank you for letting me serve you!  And to those who we have yet to work with, we look forward to meeting you!
