KIND WORDS FROM CLIENTS
Working with GG from the beginning all the way to the end with such a memorable, fun and easy-going experience. I love that when you originally reach out to her, she has a questionnaire to figure out more about your personality and to make sure that the photo shoot if you decide to move forward really suits your personality and makes you feel comfortable. I loved getting my make up done for Megan. Yes yes and she was so so sweet and the overall photo shoot was a lot of fun too! Gigi let me pick my own music too, which really made me feel comfortable taking photos. You pay for a great experience but also beautiful photos. It’s worth the investment. -Megan
Gigi is absolutely amazing! Her talent is outstanding! So was her customer service!! From the moment you connect with her.. she's very warm and welcoming! I felt entirely comfortable and confident with her! She has a way of helping you embrace your beauty and bring your personality through the camera! I look forward to many future photo shoots with her! I highly recommend GIGI.. she will not disappoint :) -Allyson
Gigi has a gift of bringing out the beauty in every person she works with. I had been wanting to do a boudoir photo shoot for a long time and each time I scheduled a time to meet with her, I’d chicken out and cancel. I’m so glad she didn’t give up on me. I finally did it and I have no idea now why I was so scared in the first place. Gigi, brought my inner Wonder Woman to the surface. I felt empowered, beautiful and fierce. She made me feel comfortable in my own skin and because of that the inner beauty came through in each and every picture. I highly recommend her for any of your photo needs. -Sylvia
This was the effortless photos I’ve ever taken. It wasn’t a stuffy environment. It was fun and comfortable. The photos were so good they didn’t even look like they needed to be edited. Also, Gigi has such a way of pull you out of your head. Amazing direction and amazing personality. She’s is the absolute best photographer I have ever been to.
