How does the Process Work for Wedding Days?

 First check out the images in our wedding gallery to be sure you like our style of photography. If you like our work schedule a consultation by calling or texting us at 320.630.8280 or by emailing


Let's Meet!

 Since your photographer and their team are with you all day on your wedding day it is a good idea for us to meet! This is a fantastic way to get to know each other. We can meet with you at the studio on Little Oscar Lake west of Alexandria or in our consultation office at 507 N Nokomis in Alexandria.  


Get Booked!

Your $700 retainer with your signed contract reserves your wedding date with G'Mariecee Portrait Studios. We do offer payment plans!


Planning Your Day

 We love working with you to plan your day. Generally we like to get together with you about four months before your wedding day to help plan the day. We have a couple of checklists and organizational charts we can use to help you design your day's flow.  


Your Big Day Is Here!

 Enjoy your day! We've got you covered! 


Viewing & Ordering Appointment

 Your images will be ready in about six weeks after your wedding. We will set up an appointment for you to come into the studio for your viewing and ordering session. At this appointment we will watch a slideshow of your wedding day, show you products and give you an opportunity to order products or make a deposit for an album if you wish.


Your Collection

 Your finished products will be ready for pickup from the studio approximately 2-3 weeks after your order is placed. Album processing time varies but is generally 3-4 weeks after your order is placed.  We will call you when your order is ready for pickup!

About GinaMarie C...

Hi! I'm Gina Marie!


I am wife and a mom of two, a bonus mom of three, and a fur mom of five- three kitties and two dogs! Our family resides on a quiet lake west of Alexandria. Together we enjoy campfires, biking, fishing, and playing in the lake. 

I absolutely ADORE wedding days. Waking up on wedding days is like waking up on Christmas morning. I can't sleep the night before, I wake up raring to get moving, and I can't wait to get to shooting! But before we can get to that magical day we have some planning and an engagement shoot to do! Those are great times as well. 

So, how did I learn this amazing profession? Well, back in college I audited some photography classes but I really got into the profession by doing a TON of reading and attending in person classes with the Minnesota Professional Photographer's Association. Through the association I had the pleasure of learning from Jerry Ghonis, Charleton Churchill, Booray Perry, Catherine Anderson, Jeff and Lori Poole, and  Marceliano Munoz.  These amazing photographers give their hints and tips to creating beautiful wedding day imagery while creating a fun, memorable day. 

I would love to work with you! Give me a call, shoot me a text, or send an email! Let's chat!
