GEm's story

Once upon a time in An Auntie's Backyard....

Raina McMillan has always loved taking pictures of her family and friends. On a warm day in October, she decided to take some "formal" portraits in her backyard of her two nieces Grace and Elsie (this is where the G and E come from in the GEM name). She like any other person does in this day and age does, posted them on Facebook, And the rest is history... From there she has learned from some of the top wedding photographers in the country, shot weddings throughout the Northeast, and has gained a wealth of knowledge that has been gold for her couples
Raina also has worked in the field of education for over 10 years,which has helped her be:


Whether it is a beach, church, barn, or a family home GEM has shot in various venues. If GEM has not shot there, if physically possible, a walk-through has been done through each new location


Places GEM Has been

Every wedding is different.. But quality of service stays the same

Telling the story takes top priority- The photographer is their to capture the story not dictate it 

Communication is key- Throughout the process Raina is there to answer questions you may have in a timely manor,
