in sandy feet and salty hair
that a walk near the ocean can cure a case of the blues
in eating cake at your wedding (it's in my contract!)
in legacy over likes
in trying something new every day, even if it's terrifying
in strong coffee and sweet donuts
that timeless will always be more important than trendy
that cheese is for nachos, not for smiles
that pets are family
It's important to choose a wedding photographer whose work you love, and who you will feel comfortable spending time with. I bring over 15 years of experience to your photography, and I do it with warmth, sincerity, humor, and authenticity. I work unobtrusively to capture natural interactions, and I can be charmingly efficient when it’s time to round up the troops for family photos. I know how to pin a boutonniére and bustle a dress. I always carry stain remover, safety pins, and mints. I have the skills to work with existing light and can make the most of dark churches and reception halls. I will never, EVER, ask you to “say cheese.” Most importantly, I know how to find the sweet and subtle moments in between all of the special traditions that make up a wedding. Having an experienced and intuitive wedding photographer there to capture those moments will make all the difference in how your story is told; the result is a genuine narrative of your day.

a closer look at
There are two definitions of marriage in the New Oxford American Dictionary:
mar·riage | ˈmerij |
1. the legally or formally recognized union of two people as partners in a personal relationship
2. a combination or mixture of two or more elements
The first one may be technically correct, but it’s the second that represents the deep curiosity that I feel for the people I am lucky enough to meet and work with. A combination. A mixture. . . the undeniable chemistry of intentional connection. When I am invited into your love story, I want to understand the way that you do life together, and then make pictures that feel like exactly who you are. My approach is meant to maintain and nourish that connection, providing you with images that show the depth and dimension of your bond to each other, and to the world you move about in, and which will always remind you not just of your wedding, but of your marriage.
slow down. Be present.
Laugh, Cry, eat a lot of cake. Dance Hard. Love Harder.
My team will be there with you for the whole day, so you can just relax, enjoy, and leave it all up to us! This is also the Day of Cake, which is my favorite.
We'll work together to come up with a timeline for the wedding day that is stress-free and includes a list of all of the people and special details that you'd like photographed.
planning the timeline
I'll take you out for cocktails or ice cream and we'll capture an afternoon in your life — your favorite location, your pets — anything that shows off the way you love. It's a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera.
your engagement session
Fill out the contact form and I'll schedule a meeting at your convenience — either in my office, via Zoom, or somewhere near your home or office.
The inquiry and consult
Every wedding is different, and I embrace those differences, but there are still a few things that you can expect along the journey.
After I drop a few sneak previews, you'll get your full gallery within six weeks, and together we'll begin designing your heirloom album.

Lisa is the absolute best in the game! From the moment we met her we knew we had to go with her for our photography. She brings a positive energy and professionalism to her craft which shows in her photos. We felt extremely comfortable with her and at times didn't even realize she was taking our pictures which allowed for us to be relaxed and have genuine pictures from our day. Her style of photography is timeless, elegant and fun. We can't recommend her enough!

Lisa Gilbert is the best wedding photographer in the business! My husband and I were so lucky to get to work with her for our wedding in September 2023, and our experience was nothing short of incredible! Lisa was such a pleasure to work with throughout our wedding planning process, engagement photoshoot, and on our wedding day. Lisa was extremely responsive and helpful as we planned our wedding day timeline. Not only does Lisa offer such vast experience, but she also brings such a positive and happy energy, and we were so glad to have her with us on our wedding day. Our family and friends also commented on how amazing it was to work with Lisa as she has a way of making sure everyone is organized but still having fun while she takes her photos. When we received our photo gallery back from Lisa we were in awe of how amazing every single shot was!

"Our whole family was blown away by her professionalism, organization and outgoing personality! Lisa was able to get amazing photos and we didn't have to spend hours taking them. She truly captures the emotion and excitement of the day, and she makes you feel at ease. It felt more like a long time friend was taking our photographs and not someone whom we had only met recently. I HIGHLY recommend her to all!"
