"Gigi can do it all! My photos turned out so amazing and I had the best experience with her! Don't miss out on an opportunity to work with Gigi on capturing your special moments! You will not be disappointed! After loosing 120 pounds, Gigi took gorgeous photos of me to mark the special occasion. She did my makeup too, which enhanced my look for the glamour shots and made my eyes stand out along with allowing my inner joy to translate through the photos. She makes you feel so comfortable and happy. It all projects through for the perfect result you are hoping for!!"

"Outstanding work. Gigi is an incredibly talented artist as well as very patient, kind, funny and skilled at her work. I asked her if she could take a photo of me for my website as well as for business cards etc. Not only did she take the most incredible selection of photos which I love, but she also did a makeover before we started, so I felt a million dollars! Never having had a professional photo taken I was a little anxious as I don't usually like close ups. Gigi was wonderful in helping me relax and feel at ease both during the makeover which was a lot of fun as well as a huge boost for my self confidence, and during the photo shoot. Gigi's manner was gentle, kind and supportive at all times as she guided me through the photo shoot together with her wonderful kind assistant Jan, suggesting ways to sit and stand and where to look. As I love the ocean, we even went down the road to the beach where we saw the most beautiful turtles whilst taking pictures. It was absolutely magical!
The whole experience was an absolute delight and joy and I came away with my self confidence increased and a huge smile on my face as well as the most stunning pictures of myself that I have ever had taken.
I cannot recommend this experience highly enough - whether you want photos to use for work or social purposes or a wedding or an anniversary/birthday etc. Also if you just want to treat yourself to a new self image with a fabulous relaxing makeover and some stunning images. I also found out today that Gigi creates websites so I have asked her to give my website a makeover now that I have great images to put on it. (By the way - we are not related and I have never had the pleasure of her services before so my comments are all genuine)."

"Gigi Lee manages to capture much more than just the person, people or point in time. Because she is such an empathetic person, the camera is forgotten and the light in the people just shines through. When she is working, you can see the true delight she has for what she does, people pick up on that , and any occasion can become a joyful one. weddings and portraits , single, couple and family, are her specialty. With weddings, she's got the ability to pick up on what has brought a couple together and what they love about each other and capture that in her lens. It's magical. She does the same with families, even big groups where normally SOMEONE would be crying, or blinking, or pouting or grimacing, or rolling their eyes, or talking or something guaranteed to ruin the photo op, her pictures are gorgeous, but not fake gorgeous , family gorgeous.
As an aside, she also performs weddings and does hair and make up for weddings and portraits. She plays the piano and sings. A true renaissance woman. I wouldn't hesitate too hire her for ANY of the things she does."

"Gigi is a very talented, upbeat and very professional. Her demeanor and amazing photographic eye made our family photo session most enjoyable. She was able to capture many photos with our active 11 month old grandson! Her team works together flawlessly - professional, efficient, great photo composition, and working with the ever changing natural lighting. It is obvious that her main goal is to capture her subjects in the best light and best angles! Mahalo Gigi."

"Gigi took pics of my family Christmas photos which wasn't a very simple task especially when part of my family consists of an energetic 2 year old. Gigi let her do her thing and was able to get some super cute pix. I loved that she could work with not only my 2 year old daughter but also my 16 year old son, 13 year old daughter and 8 year old son. She was also able to get some great shots of my husband and I. Mahalo Nui Loa to Gigi. I will definitely continue to use her."
"From the first communication, Gigi was warm, positive and kind. She made the process leading up to our family reunion less stressful.
Gigi immediately put our family at ease with her "ALOHA". She made sure that even the shyest Ohana member smiled! We look forward to Gigi helping us for all our future needs. If you want a fabulous & memorable experience, Gigi will create that for you!"

"Working with Gigi as a model on a photoshoot for a jewelry designer was epic, amazing, fun and professional. Gigi has a great way of working with models and non models alike and getting everyone to feel comfortable no matter what their experience. She does great composition and lighting and amazing post edit. Super professional yet fun and artsy. The makeup was amazing as well! Ended up hiring her for my own professional pictures for my music and yoga businesses. She was amazing and went above and beyond what any photographer I have ever worked with has done. I recommended her to some friends who also went to her and were super happy with their pictures as well. I can only highly recommend Gigi Lee Photography to anyone in any industry. You wont be disappointed!!! Mahalo Gigi :))))"

"Gigi along with an additional photographer captured every single moment from getting dressed, through the ceremony and pretty much all through the reception (this encompassed a window of many hours, mind you it was the day of the Kamehameha Parade). The images she captured throughtout the day was amazing, bringing tears to my eyes as I reviewed the photo sets.
From the dress up at the Ilikai to the ceremony at Kamehameha Schools Chapel and finally to the Coconut Club at the Mariott Waikiki, Gigi left no stones unturned. Without hesitation I highly recommend Gigi Lee as your phtographer for your special day. I could go on for days with this review but I'll just end by saying thank you Gigi for making the father of the bride shine bright like a diamond in the eyes of his little girl..... for that alone I am ever so grateful to you! If anyone would like to know more about how satisfied this dad is please feel free to email me at email@example.com. And, as soon as I figure out how to post the beautiful shot of father & daughter that Gigi photographed and sent to me within the first 72 hours(because she knew my heart yearned for it) I will post it. Hey Gigi, next gig? One or perhaps two sons?"

"Gigi Lee is amazing! After speaking to her on the phone briefly, I knew I had to have her. Her excitement is contagious! She agreed to do my hair/makeup and photography. Her prices were awesome. She Arrived to do my hair and makeup an hour earlier than scheduled and brought some great music and really fit in great with my family. She made everyone feel at ease and comfortable. She listened to what I wanted and made suggestions as well. She took photo's during the hair/makeup, the ceremony, and then after. She knew our officiant well and they together knew how to get great shots and make our day the best ever! Her personality is amazing! Gigi is truly a wonderful person in and out and you can tell how devoted she is to her clients and her effortless way of caring really makes her a part of the wedding party and joyous day!!! Thank you so much Gigi!!!!!"
Melissa Barlow - Oklahoma
"After I saw Gigi photograph and officiate my good friends wedding, I had to hire her for photos! We had a beautiful early evening family shoot on the beach when my parents were in town. Even with some crazy wind, we had SO many fantastic pictures to choose from and she was very quick and informative during the whole editing process - even giving me teasers of the final pictures! Gigi is both professional yet fun and relaxed. She is very open to any ideas you have and super easy to communicate with. Her positive spirit is awesome to be around. Overall I highly recommend her for any photo needs!!"

"Let's talk about Gigi! Don't you want pictures of that most precious day?? Not just any pictures, but ones that capture the very essence of how you, your soul mate, your family, and your guests feel and express that energy through something tangible and eternal you can always have to cherish the rest of your lives together. This is what Gigi did for us. She was with us for 9 HOURS! Never ONCE did she get tired, complacent, or even bored. She instantly became part of the "crew" and was a MUCH welcomed addition to our wedding party limo ride fun after the reception. Her personality is one of a woman who is loved and loves all and who carries a heart of gold and shows that through her work. It's truly, I mean truly amazing. Her photos of us bring tears to my eyes because of her ability to capture how I felt like the most beautiful, lucky, and loved bride ever to grace existence and how my husband felt like the luckiest (and, come on, most handsome and sexy) man to be by my side and know that this was the moment he could say "it's you and me forever, beautiful".
So to anyone and EVERYONE who reads this post, if you have any thoughts or doubts about this woman's ability to make all of these things, all of your dreams for YOUR DAY come true, wash those thoughts from your mind! This lady is IT. You'll never feel more important or better taken care of than with her!
From the very bottom of our hearts, we send a BIG mahalo nui loa and all the aloha we have to Gigi and want it to be known she will forever be remembered and loved in the Shaffer home!!!
