Photography is a love affair with life.

My name is Gabby, and Life Since You is the affectionate brand name for my wedding and portrait photography endeavors… and sometimes my husband, Nicholas, too. I typically capture portrait sessions solo, but he’s often my trusted second-shooter on wedding days. Together we make a great team of visual storytellers and chaos coordinators for the everyday couple. We live for documenting fun and down-to-earth people and their families, particularly on the happiest days of their lives. It’s just about the best job ever.

When we’re not behind the camera, our days are spent raising three tiny humans, and a pup named Tucker. Our time with them and the memories we create are what we cherish most in this world. Parenthood has a way of making you realize how quickly each minute passes you by; document every wonderful second.

The moments we capture and the people we meet don’t just pay our bills— they’re soul-food for our hearts, always eager for inspiration. We owe so much to the incredible couples we’ve worked with who have allowed us the honor of sharing their stories, many of whom we’ve come to call friends. We’re blessed by every one of them, and hope to count you among them soon. Say hello before you go!

Wedding Photography

We have three hourly options intended to cover every practical budget. Any of these coverage choices will carry you from the moment you suit up, or step into a dress, well into the reception festivities of the evening. We meet with each couple about a month before the big day to design a timeline that will help the day go as smoothly as possible, with not a moment missed!

When possible, we like to sit down with each engaged couple that comes our way here in our office. Meetings are available Monday through Thursday afternoons. Just about everything else is done online! Payments are taken care of online. The edited photographs from our time together will be uploaded to a gallery. We’ll email you the link, and you’ll log in and save the full-resolution digital files straight to your computer. A print-release is included with all of our services, giving you the flexibility to have your images developed with the retailer of your choice. But we most definitely encourage you to checkout the prints and products available for purchase in our storefront, conveniently located within your online gallery.

For all weddings, a non-refundable retainer fee and a signed Wedding Agreement is required to secure your date. The retainer fee ranges from $300 to $500, and depends on the hourly rate you select. This comes off the remaining balance, which is due just thirty days before the wedding, giving you time to focus your finances elsewhere as the rest of your wedding plans come together! We know these things take some savings. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation in the meantime, please send me a message!

Portrait Sessions

Gabby’s been documenting love stories and milestones since 2012. We extend our hourly sessions to couples, expecting parents, families, graduating seniors, and even dabble in boudoir photography. In 2019, we’re thrilled to open up our services to include newborns and infants, ages six and under, with the opening of our new studio space in downtown New Philadelphia, Ohio. For all other sessions, we have a list of 40 locations we love to shoot at and welcome your suggestions! We love to adventure, and we find that mother nature tends to provide the best backdrop. Pets are always welcome, too. Any of our sessions are available Monday through Thursday afternoons. Read up on both services below, and get in touch to schedule some time in front of the camera soon! Only $50 is required to book, and the remainder is paid at your appointment.
