Gina Esposito, Co-Founder & Principal Photographer
Gina Esposito is an award-winning photographer, with more than 13 years experience capturing weddings and black-tie affairs throughout Manhattan, the Hamptons and the greater New York City area. Her style blends the art of storytelling with candid photojournalism and dramatic composure; pairing her industry expertise with a love of raw emotion. Gina's acclaimed portfolio also extends beyond bridal to include compelling portraiture, editorial and travel photography, shot on film and digital.

Though currently based in downtown Manhattan, Gina often shoots across the nation and abroad; traveling for work and play to destination weddings throughout Europe and the Caribbean. In her free time, Gina can be found exploring remote locations via Jeep, drone or any place the inexplicably poor navigation skills of best friend/frequent co-pilot, Sheena Meekins may take them (details below). 

Sheena Meekins, Co-Founder & Principal Photographer

Sheena Meekins is a seasoned creative who joined Gina Esposito, Inc. and later co-founded Anée Atelier, following an esteemed, eight-year career in publishing. During her time at Condé Nast and Time Inc., Sheena worked for titles including Teen Vogue, Vogue, People, StyleWatch and Essence Magazine. The two-time Marketer of the Year specialized in content creation for brand partners across the fashion, footwear and retail industries.

A desire for creative pursuits outside the world of magazines led her to follow her passion for photography full-time. Her dynamic background and spirited vision can be seen throughout her work—an elevated aesthetic informed by the Vogue standard, an eye for culture developed in New York City and a playful curiosity all her own.

On any given day, you can find Sheena lost in her latest music obsession, plotting her next international adventure or coming up with a clever list of alternative nicknames, because yes–“Sheena and Gina" definitely rhyme.
