"The whole process was fun"

"Gina has such an eye for natural lighting, beautiful landscapes and capturing truly emotional moments. The whole process was fun. When we did receive our photos I almost cried, I've never had such beautiful portraits of Kailey and I, especially when we are so obviously "in the moment" with each other. If you are travelling to the west coast I highly recommend Gina, as she will not only give you portraits you will treasure forever, but they will be set in the stunning natural beauty of Vancouver Island."

Everyone takes photos on their phone, have something special

I know what you are thinking. Why pay for a professional photographer when you can take as many photos with your phone, right? Not quite. While phone snaps are wonderful fun memories that capture the little moments along the way, they don’t include one important element - YOU! You are not in the picture, having fun with the ones you love. I will make sure that YOU are part of your travel story with photos you will proudly add to your travel album and hang on your wall.

Like meeting an old friend

Such a seamless experience with Gina. We had to organize from the UK and communication with Gina was excellent. Gina understood completely my brief. There was so much warmth when we finally met, it was like meeting an old friend. The end result was so beautiful and Gina was kind and gentle with our little boy. Cannot say enough, I was so emotional when we received the photos of our shoot, they were stunning and exactly what I wanted. Thank you Gina!
