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...

Great Photographer

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 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!

From the start, I knew Gina was the right choice. Our engagement session was fun and the images were ones that will make me smile for a lifetime.

Gina was fantastic to work with! We were hoping to find a photographer who would capture our vintage-theme wedding with a creative eye. She definitely fit the bill! Gina looks at the world in a different way and can do all the standard shots but also capture those moments and... Read More angles only a creative person would see. She was also a great help when we had issues with our location and came up with a swift backup plan for another location to do our shoot. She made all of our photos have a dreamy, romantic quality that a wedding day should have. And bonus – she knows how to make brides look extra pretty! She worked her butt off the day of the event staying from early in the day to the very end so she didn’t miss a thing. Plus, I felt I made a friend in the process. She was awesome. Highly recommend!

I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Gina! We used her as our wedding photographer this past weekend, March 26th, and not only did she give us a great price but she was such a fantastic person to work with. Let me start by saying my now Husband does not like to have... Read More his photo taken. He’s a two photo max kinda guy. She arrived early and scouted everything out to know exactly where she wanted to take our photos. Gina was able to get all the shots I could imagine while keeping him happy and knowing when to give him a break. We waited to see each other until we walked down the aisle and she still got everything in without taking away time from our cocktail hour for us! I was able to dance, eat, and enjoy everything about my wedding and get amazing photos. She’s got the greatest personality and fit in perfectly with our bridal party. She even helped clean up a broken glass on the dance floor, seriously above and beyond! If you are considering a photographer I highly highly recommend Shot by Gina. Not to mention we were from out of town and the whole experience was so easy. Thank you so much Gina, I can’t wait to see all the photos I know they will be gorgeous!


Highly Recommend Gina!!
