No words can even begin to describe what I felt when I opened up our online gallery and saw a glimpse of our images. Gloria, you are a true artist and you can truly see that being a photographer is what you were born to do. Looking through our images, I could not stop smiling; tears welled in my eyes as I was overjoyed by what you had captured. Not only are these images a great memory to cherish as a reminder of our trip to Paris, but these photos capture emotion and the love we share.
You are a true genius, and I am so in love with what you have delivered us. It is perfect!
THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU from the bottom of our hearts! xx
You are one of the kindest, dearest people that I have met. You are super friendly, and all communication with you has been of ease. I am so truly glad that I decided to spend a small fortune on this experience as it was well and truly worth every cent and more.
If you want a photographer who is professional, friendly, chilled, fun and able to make you relax and enjoy the moment, and actually have a conversation with you; then Gloria is your girl! You will not be disappointed. So when you’re next in Paris, get in contact with her, because she is the best in the biz!

My boyfriend, now fiancée, proposed to me in Paris and he chose the amazing and talented Gloria Villa to capture this life changing moment.

Her work is beyond photography, it is truly art! She was able to capture the emotion, the love and our story in all the pictures she took of us.

The minute we opened the gallery of pictures we teared up with emotion because we relived every single moment seeing the pictures.

Her work is the true meaning of the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”.

Not only do we recommend her and her work but we encourage people to work with her because she is just that good and I am sure she will not disappoint! Not to mention she is soooo sweet and personable but at the same time extremely professional.

Hands-down the best photography I have ever seen in my life!

Our proposal and engagement sessions with Gloria Villa were absolutely amazing. She was incredibly accommodating to our needs and went beyond our expectations to make sure we felt comfortable.

She was engaging from the very first meeting until our last shoot. She has an incredible attitude even with the rain and champagne face wash from one of our props! Her photos captured our personalities and the Parisian ambiance perfectly. Her location recommendations were spot on, and the sunset proposal was a breathtaking capture.

We are so grateful to have her capture this magical moment for us. We highly recommended her beautiful work to others who are interested in professional and fun photos!

Well where do we start. Gloria is a phenomenal photographer. She created photos that dreams are made of and we couldn’t have asked for more.

The whole process start to finish from her pleasant demeanor to her high level of professionalism and energy was outstanding! If you are lucky enough to secure her for your photos you are going to love the final product!

Gloria accommodated our every request not only meeting our expectations but exceeding them!

Photos, pricing and experience are all 10/10. We will use her again and recommend her to anyone.

Thank you Gloria for making our special moment last forever!

Gloria is the ultimate photographer who says and does the right things to get you in your element.

Thank you so much for photographing our special moments in Paris.

We’d never had a photo shoot before as a couple but after our session with Gloria we would do it again in a heartbeat.

The photos have turned out fantastic and capture the fun we had and great place we were at that morning in Paris.

We love every single photo and thank you for making that morning memorable and enjoyable.

Biggest love from Frankie and Amanda

Back in September, we went to Paris and my partner had a HUGE surprise, a photo session in Paris as a birthday gift.

There we met with the amazing and talented photographer Gloria. It was an incredible experience. Gloria was very professional nice and easy to work with her.

Before the session, the communication was perfect, we met and got to work.

We felt like we knew Gloria for many years there was an immediate connection. Gloria has an eye to capture the beauty, she had the patience and dedication.

The results speak for itself, we love our pictures and the best thing is that we have a new friend in Paris. I strongly recommend Gloria to anyone, I have told many of my friends who are planning to go to Paris about her amazing job…..

My fiancé and I had the privilege to work with Gloria this past summer. As a recently engaged couple, we decided to add on an additional leg to our already planned vacation, and we could not pass up Paris. And since Paris is such a romantic city, I knew we had to get our engagement pictures taken there.

I contacted Gloria roughly one month before our arrival, and was greeted by Gloria via email. She was so friendly and helpful, and even though it was super last minute, Gloria was able to fit me into an early morning session for 2 hours (two locations).

Gloria was in contact with us throughout the month leading up to our session. She provided excellent tips and suggestions (locations, outfits, etc.). I knew we were in great hands.

Upon arrival to our meeting location for our shoot, we were met by Gloria and got to know each other. The rest of the shoot was smooth sailing. Gloria was so easy to work with and made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable.

Once the session finished, Gloria let us know that our unedited proofs would be available to view in about 2-4 weeks, and true to form, they were ready on time. After picking which photos we wanted (it was VERY hard as all photos were gorgeous) we were advised our final pictures would be ready in 2-3 months…and they came right as month 2 rolled around!

Fantastic communication, epic locations, excellent pricing, and pure talent. I cannot thank Gloria enough. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

Gloria is an amazing photographer person and now friend! When I first heard about her I was really nervous because you never know what you’re going to get from someone you’ve never met, especially when you live in two different countries. Leading up to our visit to Paris, and photo shoot with Gloria, I probably sent 100 emails with big questions, small questions and silly questions. She answered every one and made me feel completely comfortable.

When we met up in Paris on the day of our photo shoot there was an instant connection and comfort that came from meeting Gloria. Even though we were nervous and out of our element, she broke the ice and helped us really get into the shoot. After seven years together and only having iPhone photos, we had a lot riding on this photo shoot. We wanted to create quality memories that would last a lifetime and that we’d be proud to share with our kids one day. The end result speaks for itself.

We are beyond happy with how our photos came out and how perfectly Gloria captured the lighting, architecture and our love most importantly! I can go on and on but I truly think to understand how wonderful Gloria and her photography is, you just need to experience it for yourself! We will definitely be back in the future to shoot our family photos when we have kids. Thanks Gloria for everything…

Gloria is so sweet and lovely to work with. She is a terrific photographer and captured so many stunning photos of me and my husband when we came to Paris for a “cherish the dress” photo shoot in June 2016. It was a chilly morning but we made the best of it, and she was always able to find the prettiest places for photos despite the rain! It was so much fun and totally worth it. We get so many compliments on our beautiful photos and it is a day that we will never forget. Paris will always be so special to us!

Thank you Gloria!

The best decision of our life was to have taken our pre-wedding pictures with Gloria in Paris.

This pictures will be in our memories forever and for all the generations to come in our family. Thank you Gloria for being an excellent professional and human being.

Gloria is an incredible photographer. Her creativity, vision, and keen eye for capturing beautiful photos will amaze you. But what makes Gloria such a great photographer goes beyond her skills with a camera.

She was so instrumental in helping me plan the surprise, Paris proposal to my fiancée, Caroline. Gloria was my partner in crime throughout that process. Everything turned out beyond great, and for that I am forever in her debt.

And of course, the photos… Such beautiful photos. We are so happy with the way that Gloria captured the big “moment” and Caroline’s reaction, and the creativity of the photos that we took around Paris afterward. That will always be a very, very special moment to us.

Thank you, Gloria!

Gloria did our engagement photo shoot and the photos are stunning!!!! I could honestly not be happier with the results. I didn’t know we were getting engaged, so it was a complete surprise for me 🙂 and she captured every ounce of emotion and excitement in the photos! I literally look at the pictures every single day, and anyone that has seen the photos is in awe of how natural yet beautiful they are!

The locations she chose, the composition of the pictures, her creativity, the editing of the final result – all of it was spot on!!!

Gloria was fun to work with, made us feel completely comfortable and just had an energy about her that let us be ourselves while capturing our special moments.

I wish I could take Gloria with us to every city we visit and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for photos in Paris!!!
