at the heart of my work

Your event is not just a day, it is your love story. Your story deserves to be told in an artful, beautiful, memorable way that will speak to your love for generations to come.
From day one of your wedding planning, it's my mission to plan, prepare and create in a way that frees you to fully experience every moment of your day. I go above and beyond, with careful consideration and that extra personal touch to create  your once in a lifetime experience.

"We are so grateful we chose to use her
as our wedding photographer."

Gelmina is honestly nothing short of incredible. A very talented photographer with an amazing eye for detail. She perfectly captured our special moments. Gelmina is very organised and experienced , and helped us; a camera shy couple feel very comfortable infront of the lense, perfectly capturing our big day. Phoem Studio delivered work beyond our expectations. We are so grateful we chose to use her as our wedding photographer. 


"We could not have chosen a better photographer for our wedding!"

Gelmina for us is the best photographer! All the photos of our weddings are wonderful and make everyone emotional. She was super helpful, kind, listens and satisfies the customer's needs. So easy to work with!

"Best photographer we could not ask for."

She's really amazing photographer. She did a wonderful job at our weddings, the photos are over our expectations! Even in the service following the wedding date she proved to be available to our needs.
 I can just recommend her to everyone!

"Marvelous Gelmina!"

She is more than a photographer! Beyond those lenses  there's not only a professional, tireless worker but the girl, the person .. always shines through!
She's able to capture the highlights of these unique and special days, with discretion and experience.
Even with an introverted husband like mine, after a few shots, she managed to find harmony and bring out the "best side" of him, in every sense!
I would not have changed her for any other and I am delighted that this opportunity has given me the opportunity to meet a wonderful  person  as she is!
Thank you G.
