G & E Studios is a full-service studio that uses a boutique approach for your photography needs. Owned and managed by Gary and Elaine Jones, what started out 40 years ago as a hobby, has grown into a full-service studio that specializes in Portrait and Corporate Photography to include family sessions, children, newborns, milestones, headshots, corporate events or holiday parties – on location or in studio.
It all started 40 years ago when Gary picked up his first camera, but was cut short by the unfortunate loss of his equipment. Gary sustained his passion though not realizing until 2011 when he had his first “shot” to be behind the lens again at a friend’s wedding – that was what he needed to rekindle his burning passion for photography. Since that day, Gary has not only perfected his craft, but also his dream and passion has grown into a successful business.
Elaine’s passion doesn’t mirror Gary’s story, but her enthusiastic desire to serve is unlike no other. Elaine views every opportunity to work with a client as a means of serving her professional family, ensuring each member is satisfied and leaves with memorable images that will remain cherished for several generations to come. Elaine’s happiness comes from providing her professional family with beautiful photography that preserves unique memories.
We both believe in full-service photography that involves planning your session, guiding you through your photos and getting you tangible items you can view daily. Hiring G & E Studios is an investment worthwhile – it’s taking your vision and making it a reality. Let our expertise, reputation and attention to detail create quality products for you to display. We can’t wait to work with you and to call you our professional family.
I wouldn't recommend anyone else for professional photos. Gary & Elaine took a great deal of time to truly understand what I wanted in my head shot session and the photos were outstanding. I truly appreciate Elaine's compassion and care to make sure that every hair was perfectly in place (literally) and Gary's artist attention to detail. I couldn't have asked for a better session. I will definitely be using G and E Studios for all of my photos, from business to personal. Thank you both! -Angie P.
We used G & E Studios for our recent Employee Awards & Recognition Dinner and they were absolutely fabulous! Elaine made the entire process extremely easy. Their photo booth was an absolute hit with our staff. I couldn’t recommend them any more!
Elaine and Gary did a fabulous job at my daughter's wedding this past weekend! Not only did they travel to Alabama to be the creative force behind the wedding video, they ran a fun-filled photo booth all night long!
G & E Studios is a professional organization with an emphasis on making the customer feel beyond special. Their attention to detail and willingness to accommodate the wishes of the bride, groom, and all the guests, was a cut above. I would hire them again without hesitation! -Beth C.

Process easy and very professional
Gary & Elaine were both great to work with. I initially met them at a bridal show at the Douglasville Conference Center. The photo booth was a hit at the bridal show. It was a hit at my reception. E & G made the process very easy and was very professional. They were on time. My family really enjoyed the booth. Everything that was there from the props to the excitement of having 3 seconds to change into different props to voice recordings. It was great! Everyone got the opportunity to get pictures. E & G explained the whole process. You were able customize what you wanted to print on the pictures. Great packages. Thanks! Nothing but great things to say about the entire process!
Great service with a smile
I was so pleased with my professional head shot that was done by G&E Studios. Gary and Elaine made sure that my hair was in the right place and no lipstick on my teeth! Gary was very patient with my squinty eye problem and made sure I had a photo to be used with all my advertising. Thank you for great service with a smile! -Rhonda Y.
Amazing job with the commUNITY events
I have worked with G and E Studios on different events, plus a professional head shot session, and I LOVE them. They did an amazing job with the commUNITY events, and with my head shots like many people I was a little nervous but Gary and Elaine were so friendly and welcoming that I got over that pretty quickly. The 90s music helped too! Once we got into the shoot I never felt self conscious at all.
I usually don’t feel good about myself but I did during this photo shoot. My husband loved the pictures as well. I highly recommend them and I would definitely go back!
Really nice experience. Gary and Elaine provided a nice, relaxed atmosphere and took the best pictues we have ever had. We highly recommend them and will not hesitate to call them in the future. -Michael E.

Gary and Elaine worked patiently for several hours to get the best shots of my son doing his sport–skateboarding. The photos Gary and Elaine took are well-composed, properly lit, creative action shots for my family to frame and proudly display in our home for many years to come. In addition, my son enjoyed working with Gary and Elaine to get the high-quality shots we have always wanted to have. Gary and Elaine are professional, personable, and pleasant. I highly recommend G and E Studios. -Melinda M.

We have been blessed with the memories captured with G and E Studios! They captured every moment, even those that may seem insignificant to some. Every time we look at the memories captured, it brings us back into the moments that began our journey in life together as one. Each photo holds a special moment etched with the color that etched each moment be it peaceful, intimate, funny, tears of joy, you name it they captured it. We are grateful they were there to capture those memories that will last forever. -Posting from The Knot
There is a sure difference between taking a nice picture & capturing the very essence of the moment. Gary & Elaine definitely have an eye for natural beauty, yet, their photos aren’t your everyday photos but creations of boundless ingenuity. Not only are my family & I pleased with the photos, but the setting was just the right atmosphere. Her enthusiasm alone encouraged our “Happily-Ever-After”. The entire experience was stress-free & fun! Thank you Gary & Elaine for telling our story! -Posting from The Knot

The Perfect Shot
Gary and Elaine did an engagement shoot last year for us. Our day involved climbing up high trees, walking through waterfalls, and just doing whatever it took to get the perfect shot. We ended up using one picture as our Save the Date magnet. It was great! Definitely recommend! -Posting from The Knot

Gary and Elaine were so fantastic !!!! After being let down by two other photographers our venue found G and E studios for us- coming through only weeks before our wedding they truly delievered! They made everything very personal – from meeting with just us, attending our rehearsal to make sure they had the feel for the entire wedding personality- to being there the moment we stepped out of the limo to make sure they didn’t miss a moment! Their assistant had her eye on every tiny detail from straps , lines and curls to helping keep our little ones happy and loved – this whole team was a huge part of our big day and I can honestly say we are so happy they were there for us! -Kayla T.

Captured Every Moment
Gary and Elaine took our wedding pictures and captured every moment most photographers tend to miss. Some are posed naturally beautiful and the action shots speak the spoken and unspoken words, joy and love not just between my Honey Pie and myself but family and friends. Several years later we can look at our photos and recall specific moments years seem to forget. Thank you Gary and Elaine. We love you and thank you. -Kim C.

Gary and Elaine are very professional and helpful during the photo process.

I would have them do all of the photos for my family. -Thomas M.

Captured the Real Me
Gary & Elaine have a passion for taking pictures. It’s not just a hobby but a lifestyle for them & this skill is evident in each photo. I stumbled along this opportunity to try something new as I hadn’t even come close to modeling before. They were patient with me & very hospitable. They knew exactly what to say, do, or play (music) to ease my nerves a bit. By the end of the shoot, I was relaxed, chatting, & “striking a pose” as if I were around family. They captured the real me. I’m thankful to have met these wonderful individuals & the pictures are phenomenal! 5 stars, hands-down! & to think none of this would’ve happened if it weren’t for my friend referring them! Thanks for your help, support, & for believing in us , every step of the way. Outstanding team! -Katrina M.

Built Up My Confidence
Thanks to Gary and Elaine for the beautiful Christmas pictures and the good selection of Christmas cards. We have already shared some of the cards with family and friends. Everyone likes them!!!!
I met Gary and Elaine at a Paulding Chamber networking event and we had an instant connection. Elaine contacted me later to help organize some of the GANDESTUDIOS processes. After working with them, I realized the magnitude of work it takes to print a quality photo. Their attention to the details, their excellent customer service and their passion for capturing the perfect shot compelled me to use their services. My first photos were my first professional headshots. The headshots built up my confidence to become more engaged regarding social media and my printed material. For the second photos, my husband and I took Christmas pictures. We are very pleased with the results. We look forward to having more pictures taken and referring business to them. What a great team! -Beverly E.
Gary & Elaine were fun to work with and did an excellent job. The headshots for our firm look great. Thank you. -Paul H.
These people are not only professional, but truly likable. Let’s face it, picture taking is nerve-racking and having somebody that is easy-going and flexible makes all the difference! They even got our cat to relax for a photo! We had a great experience and can’t recommend them highly enough. You will love your pictures by G and E Studios! -Tania P.

They are a great company to have do your pictures and I would most definitely refer them to anyone. -Corey J.
Gary and Elaine did a great job on my family’s portrait session! The amount of detail that they spent on the background, with props and all was truly amazing! This was our first time time not using a chain business and the experience is completely different! I would highly recommend them to anyone needing photography services.
I’ve also seen and heard of them actively participating in the community – I’ve never heard anything short of amazing from all those encountering them. I wish y’all much success! -Samantha R.

Fair, Competitive and Patient
They did a great job on the pictures. I would recommend them to anybody. Prices are fair and competitive. They did a great job with the kids and they’re very patient. -Juan R.
More than 5 stars
I hate that I can only give these people 5 stars. This was the best photography experience I have ever had. They were so understanding and went along with our goofy personalities. They didn’t get mad or frustrated that we wanted to cut up and have a good time. They went along with it. I can not say anything negative about them. They take amazing photos and the fact that they are perfectionist gave me comfort because I knew the pictures would be wonderful. We will be seeing them again for more pictures in the future! -Kim E.
Fun and Wonderful
Absolutely the best experience I’ve ever had with photographers! The first day, they became friends, by the end of the second day, they were family. Gary, Elaine, and Dionne are amazing people and I’m so grateful to them for making my best friend’s wedding day photos so special and listening to her every detail and wish. Their ideas are fun and they are just wonderful people to be around! So glad we got the opportunity to share her day with them!!! -Emmy H.
