Gina shoot my college graduation photos and they turned out absolutely beautiful. Gina was so talented, patient and professional. She paid attention to detail and the results were quite pleasurable. I will definitely hire Gina for any future events that I may have. I will recommend her to family and friends as well. A+++++Dec 8, 2015Verified
Gina is a gifted photographer and has any eye for great shots. She did my wedding, and captured the event beautifully. When I was trying to choose which photo to put on the cover of my album, it was hard to pick a favorite... they were ALL favorites. She also creatively staged some shots...one with my adult son (who walked me down the aisle) kissing me on the cheek, and another of my new husband with his adult son (who was the Best Man) kissing him on the cheek. They were delightful and added a special touch! Special memories captured!Mar 10, 2015Verified
I can't say enough about how pleased I was with the work that Gina did! First, she was in great communication with us prior to our arrival in Port Bolivar for the wedding (we were coming from San Francisco, so we didn't even know what the place looked like). On the day of the event, she arrived early, and floated around the house as we were all getting ready for the wedding... then we did some posed shots with the family and wedding party, and then during the ceremony, she captured some really beautiful moments. Afterwards, she stayed for part of the reception to capture some of the important moments for that, then when it was time, she excused herself. Less than 2 weeks later, I received the email from her saying my pictures were ready. The shots were EXACTLY why we hired her. We love her aesthetic, and she didn't disappoint. The photos were artistic and truly captured the fun and casual energy of our wedding.Mar 11, 2016Verified
I had a small wedding and hired Gina because I really liked her style of photos online and her pricing was very fair compared to other quotes I received. Gina was very nice and stayed in the background. If I wished for one thing, it would be the fact I wish more direction was given as far as how people were posing. The set up for pictures was perfect, the position of some people was not. From a brides perspective it is hard to know what to do or what poses to ask for since this was my first wedding. I wish that my guests were told to position themselves a certain way in order to make some of the family shots more uniform. My husband also wished that there were some photos of just him. Gina did arrive early to get shots of the venue and that could have been a perfect opportunity to get the groom in a couple shots alone. Overall I do not regret hiring Gina and very pleased with the photos. I still really like her style and would definitely consider her for event photography in the future. Her price was fair and as a whole, I am pleased with the services I received.Aug 19, 2015VerifiedGina Schild Photography (ShotsbyGina)'s reply
Thank you for the feedback! Your wedding venue was beautiful, as were you. But it was slightly challenging having to do all the family pics outside of the restaurant on a 100 degree day in Houston! I was also a little nervous with the steps, and uneven lay of the back area ... which limited the way I could position people. I utilized all the flat areas for posing, but positioning on the steps and uneven lay of the area was a challenge. I thought I pushed everyone as far as I could before I started getting the 'that's enough' looks along with us all melting in the heat! I had mentioned going to the front area of the restaurant but did not get very good responses on doing that. After reading your review, I realize I should have let everyone cool off and go for a second round! Lunch time on a Friday kinda limited us inside. I will look for some more single images of your handsome husband...I definitely do not want him to feel left out! Congrats to you two! gina

"My first experience with Gina" My photographer of all events for the past 10 years left the business, but while in business he spoiled us with service.. we were pampered! I though I could not find another photographer as good, but, I did!! SHE IS AWSOME! My daughters graduation pictures were absolutely ASTONISHING! She was very attentive and PROFESSIONAL!!! Prices are competitive!!Jun 4, 2014
