"I have so many positive things to say about Gigi it’s hard to know where to start. Obviously there is the professionalism: she’s always on time, has great communication skills and nails every brief I give to her even with the challenging locations I request.  Gigi is mindful of the nature and destination of the images, she will place logos in the correct position and she always bears post-production in mind when shooting. All of this is priceless for production as they can be easily forgotten about on the day.  But, for me, I think the thing that sets Gigi apart is the way she interacts with the team. She gives models directions to get the best look but also listens to them and the suggestions of the art directors to ensure everyone works collaboratively. The models very quickly feel at complete comfort and ease with Gigi; you can see this through the images she captures and it helps the day run smoothly from the beginning.  The team and I always have the best time working with Gigi and couldn’t recommend her highly enough."  (Jenni Harrison - Gymshark Production) 

"Anyone who has met Gigi can agree, the only thing better than her positive fun-loving attitude is her beautiful photography. Her work is truly radiant!" (VISION models LA)

"In the short time I’ve known and worked with Gigi, she’s proven to be an amazing partner and friend. Her photography speaks for itself capturing the true, natural beauty and essence of every individual that steps foot in front of her camera. Not only does she have the eye for this work but the perfect personality to match. Every person who is lucky enough to work with Gigi can attest to her genuine kindness and positivity on every shoot. The IMG Models team could not be more grateful to have partnered with her here in LA and see only the best in her future." (IMG Models LA)
