About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I really strive to make my photo sessions fun and relaxed. I believe that in creating an environment where both the photographer AND the client are comfortable with each other, it creates the type of session where it shows in the photos. I feel that I am a great communicator of what I am trying to achieve with a pose or look (even if I look silly showing you!), and will gladly spend the time with you to help you feel comfortable before and during the session! With all this being said, I am able to capture "posed" moments that look more natural, and of course my favorite - candid shots!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the opportunity to work with a wide variety of people, of all ages to help create unique memories! There is nothing better than to see your images displayed in your home or business, on your Facebook page or when I receive a holiday card or announcement... I have said since I started this journey - "I love what I do, and I do what I love..."

    Ginger was awesome! I used her for my engagement party and could not have been happier with her services. She was prompt, responsible, and took amazing and high quality pictures. Her turn around for the pictures was quick which was also great. I would definitely recommend her services!
  • Amanda Scott S. Mar 16, 2016
    We used Ginger as our photographer for our annual Christmas photos and they turned out phenomenal. Her attention to detail from location, lighting and working with our active 3 year old was amazing. We had so many compliments on our card this year, thanks to you Ginger! Looking foward to our next photo session! xoxo!

    I had the pleasure of working with Ginger on a photo shoot, which one of the pictures was featured on Curve Magazine and a few other publications as well. She is an amazing and creative photographer. She made me feel very comfortable at all times in front of the lens. She is a true professional and has a lot of passion for what she does. Plus she always gets your best angle. I recommend her 100 percent!! ?

    I LOVE the photos from our session and THANK YOU for the opportunity! Not only have you been an amazing client, but I gained a great friend out of this! Here's to future shoots and publications together!

  • Wendy L. Mar 16, 2016
    We have hired Ginger more than once and have loved her work. Ginger is so easy to work with. The quality of her photos is amazing. Ginger worked within our budget and exceeded our expectations both times. I am positive that if we need a trusted photographer in the future we will call Ginger even if we have to fly her in town. You will not be disappointed with her calm and zen like personality. That is just an added bonus.

    Thank you Wendy! The wedding was beautiful despite the torrential downpour - and I was beyond happy with how the photos turned out!

    Ginger did our son's senior year photo shoot, and we are SO happy with the way the pics turned out! It wasn't your run-of-the-mill, boring session. She took him to a unique spot, off the beaten path, and captured his personsality perfectly! A few months later, we did a family session, with the same fantastic results. Our kids usually dread family pictures, but after being with Ginger for just a few minutes, they would've posed for her all day! In addition to being extremely talented, she connects with her clients, to get the best possible outcome. My only complaint? The pictures are all so good, it's impossible to pick our favorites! I highly recommend Ginger de Vegh Photography, and look forward to working with her again.

    You have the most amazing and beautiful family and I could take their photos all day long! Thank you for being fun and soo easy to work with!

  • Red B. Mar 15, 2016
    Ginger is awesome! She was hired to capture my sons Spiderman themed birthday party. She made sure everyone had a "captured moment" (over 50 guests!) and really connected with our little and grown guests alike. She did an outstanding job of being there but not in the way. An ultimate artist and professional. Highly recommended!!!!
    Ginger D. Mar 16, 2016

    Thank you Red! Normally the thought of being surrounded by that many little kids would send any photographer running - but you all made it fun and the excitement in Dorian's eyes when Spidey showed up made it totally worth it!!!

    Ginger did an excellent job and the whole family loved working with her. She was very professional arriving when scheduled and getting proofs to us promptly. She really has an artistic eye and takes beautiful photos. We would definitely have her come back again.

    We had a family photo shoot done by Ginger De Vegh. She captured some amazing moments with her photography that I will cherish forever. Ginger was great and had some really cute ideas for our pictures, she also had a lot of patience with our 2 little kids and made them feel so comfortable. I'd highly recommend Ginger De Vegh Photography for all of your photo needs!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once we establish that we'll be working together, I will reach out via phone/email to talk about your session and what you'd like to accomplish within it. Depending on the type of session, we will discuss location, your vision as well as mine, timing, wardrobe, etc.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am constantly reading trade magazines to stay on top of current trends and developments within photography! I also take several web-based classes a month to further develop my knowledge. I love to also look at other photographers work from around the world - it's always a great inspiration!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My pricing varies based on the type of session - please reach out to me or visit my website pricing page to see specifics!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've always loved taking photos and decided after many years of working "in a cubicle", that I wanted to pursue my passion full time.... and I haven't looked back!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have had the pleasure of working with families, musicians and bands, models as well as new and established businesses and individuals!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask questions and be clear about what you want in your photo session! Think about and plan your outfit/clothing and come camera ready (hair done, makeup if necessary). If you are having a session with your small child, be prepared with a few things to help keep their attention (bubbles, a favorite toy, etc...) but be aware that they May want them in the photos with them. When booking a session, be mindful of the time of day and whether or not that falls during nap time or a normal snack/meal time!
