She not only was our photographer, she now holds a special place in our heart. For our engagement shoot she literally got on the floor to not miss any good shots!

I reserved a session at the beautiful Julia Ideson Library in downtown Houston for my daughter's bridal portrait. Gina had never been there before so she made the trek down there to scope everything out weeks before our appointment. On the day, she was able to help us navigate...

I got married in a small but lovely venue, and Gina captured the occasion from the wedding party gathering and preparing, to guests arriving, throughout the ceremony, fantastic and creatively posed photos after the ceremony, to the celebration at the reception. She was on... Read More time and professional throughout, and worked her magic without interfering or blocking anyone's view. She captured candid moments along with the more traditional and formal poses, and surprise poses that turned out so special. An example of this occurred after the ceremony when the guests had left to go to the reception venue and the wedding party was posing for the standard shots. Gina surprised us by having my new husband's adult son (who was the best man) kiss his dad on the cheek. My husband's expression of pure happiness in that moment is priceless. Gina also had my adult son kiss me on the cheek in the next shot, and I've framed these photos together as a keepsake. Gina used the natural lighting for some special effects, as well as professional lighting she brought with her. Her equipment seemed modern and versatile, and she obviously had experience as she was agile in switching lenses, adjusting settings, placing props and making sure everything was perfect. After we got back from our honeymoon, Gina contacted us and soon had photos for us to view. I was amazed at her work and what she had accomplished for us. Every one was perfect. I'll also tell you that I was a "mature", meaning over 50, bride, and plus sized. Gina is a "girl's best friend" in that she knew the best angles, best lighting, and used her intuition to me look younger, thinner, and really lovely. My biggest problem was deciding which photo to put on the cover of my wedding book....there were several that were worthy of that place of honor. I highly recommend Gina as the photographer for your special occasion. I am very pleased that I chose her for mine.

Gina was amazing to work with in my bridal photos as well as on our wedding day. She isn't afraid to get down low or climb on furniture to get the best shot.

I picked out Gina and pulled the trigger on her immediately. My wife, who I love very much, cannot make a good decision on most things. Gina was half the cost of another photographer we were looking at. Did I say half? The work looked the same to me, and I hired her. My... Read More wife made all the other choices and picks. My choice was the best. Dudes, take control now and hire this photographer for your photos. My wife thanks me every time she sees them.

Gina was great for our wedding! We had an outdoor wedding and indoor reception and all of the photos were great. Only thing I would've done different is have a list of special photos I wanted, which I didn't think I needed (and Gina DID ask!). Anyway, Gina was fantastic!
