A Truth Be Shown Photography
I LOVED working with Gina from the first moment I met her! She has such a wonderful personality...the bonus is that she is a super talented photographer too!! Our pictures are better than I could have imagined!! Thank you for being part of our special day!
Gina is a true artist. She puts so much heart, soul, and fabulous positive energy into everything she does for her clients. She was not only a wonderful photographer who gave us a collection of invaluable images to remember our wedding day by, but she also made the wedding day great with her energy. We spent more on her than we'd budgeted, but she was worth every penny and more. Hire her if you can.
Gina is the best...and when it comes to wedding photos and those beautiful memories that are going to last the rest of your life...You want Gina to take those photos because she has got an wonderful eye to make your pictures breath-taking, visual art that is one of a kind!
She is a fun, kind, caring, AMAZING, creative photographer who makes you feel like a million bucks on one of the most special days of your life. The pictures that you get from Gina will capture some amazing moments of that special day and you will be able to have them forever! Gina is in love with being in love...and that truly shows through her work!
Pictures are one of those items that will capture your day and you will have for always and I was so glad that I found Gina for my photographer and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants there wedding pictures to be the best!
Gina and the entire A Truth Be Shown staff was amazing to work with. Gina was so organized she had the entire agenda down and made sure we stayed on schedule. This is so nice, especially for the bride and groom who have a million other things going on the big day! Gina was creative and fun! When we got our pictures back we were so happy, they were beautiful. She truly captured the day and made sure to include things that we would not want to forget. She has been so easy to work with and responds immediatley to any questions we have, even after we got our pictures back! WE have had so many compliments on our pictures and couldnt be happier!!
I cannot express enough how happy we are with the fantastic photography we received from our wedding. Gina was so wonderful to work with and made the day seemless. She had a lot of great ideas and made everyone feel comfortable. Gina took the extra time to understand what we wanted and to scope out the sites in advance. Her photos say it all. They reflect the story of our day and the range of emotions we all felt. I am so thankful to have those memories come alive in her beautiful photography.
We can't say enough positive things about Gina and the service she provided. From the minute we met her we knew she was going to be our photographer. Her fun easy going personality and obvious love for what she does was apparent. Her attention to both the big and small details of our wedding provided us with images that captured our entire day and we will cherish them for a lifetime. I have received multiple comments when showing my wedding photographs to people that "these are the best wedding pictures they have every seen" and we couldn't agree more!!
Gina from A Truth Be Shown was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was great with working with our schedules and being flexible with our meetings. She was so helpful in helping us pick the look and style we were going for while providing very valuable suggestions and insights for us as photographic novices.
When the weather was less than ideal on our wedding day, Gina's gifted eye and adaptability allowed us to still find unique and beautiful opportunities to adjust our photo shoot and come out with amazing pictures. She was fantastic with our families and kept the wedding party organized and involved.
Overall, we could not be happier with the finished product and the service we received. The price was a little on the expensive side, but you certainly get what you pay for. It was a bit difficult to save the pictures we wanted for the album on the website but other than that we had absolutely no complaints. We would highly recommend A Truth Be Shown Photography to anyone who wants beautiful and stylish photography services with a fun, talented, and energetic photographer.
Gina was our first pick as our photographer just from what we read about her as soon as we met we knew she was the one we would hire. We didn't want an engagement session, so my daughter was graduating from high school and Gina suggested grad pictures instead. Worked out great. We had a small wedding so we incorporated our family and friends into the pictures. It was a cold and windy October day but we all made the best of it the ceremony was switched from outdoor to indoor at the last minute and they just rolled with it. The pictures are beautiful and fun. She even handled the peanut gallery well everyone seems to have so many funny things to say while your getting pictures taken!
Gina was very professional. She truly has a wonderful eye for what she does. It was an absolute pleasure working with her.
She does an amazing job, I would recommend her to anybody and everybody. She is really easy to work with and helps you relax and enjoy the day!
If I could give Gina and A Truth Be Shown Photography more than 5 stars I would! The whole process was just amazing. She was very organized and responsive to all email interaction and was prompt to all of our meetings (even if they took place way closer to our house than to her studio). She thinks about the problems that can occur and brings backup cameras, and even drives to the wedding site before the wedding day to make sure she knows the traffic snags and directions. Gina was amazing to work with and everyone who has seen our pictures just raves about her work in framing us and making us look our best. She really knows how to work with people and made sure that we stayed on schedule even with several important picture-people arriving late. I recommend A Truth Be Shown Photography with the utmost respect and good wishes!
Gina was very easy to work with, well organized, and handled my rowdy bridal party awesomely--our pictures were absolutely beautiful.
I couldn't have asked for anything more in my wedding photos. The hardest part was the wait after the wedding. Gina was wonderful to work with and was well prepared with an assistant, equipment and the list of "must have" shots that we had already discussed.
A Truth Be Shown Photography was amazing to work with and I would 100% recommend Gina to my friends and family. My husband and I immediately felt comfortable and were able to connect on what we were seeking in our photographs. As a bride, the most important thing for me was to have 1 - 2 pictures that were truly beautiful to keep as a reminder of the day. We were amazed with what we received. Not only do we have a beautifully documented day, we have some photographs that are truly stunning. We (and our family) are so happy. We found a Truth Be Shown Photography based a work referral and I am so pleased that we followed up.
Gina was so easy to work with and all around just a cool person. She is very creative, knowledgeable and sincere about her work. The quality of our photos is amazing. I have and will continue to recommend her to family, friends and strangers!!!
Our wedding day is forever captured in the beautiful photography taken by Gina!
Gina is an amazing, professional, down to earth and creative photographer. After we had our engagement pictures taken with her we knew that we would not have one worry about how our wedding pictures would turn out. We absolutely loved them! We could not have asked for a better photographer. She is very organized and thinks of every last detail. She gave us exactly what we wanted. As we look back at the pictures (over and over) we feel so overwhelmed with gratitude at how Gina captured the spirit of our special day. Thanks Gina! You are the best!
UNBELIEVABLE!!! Gina was worth every penny....and then some! Thanks again!!!
Gina was absolutely amazing! She is extremely talented and easy to work with. She was able to capture many important and beautiful moments of one of the most important days of our lives. I highly recommend her to anyone :)
A Truth Be Shown Photography is amazing and I would highly recommend their photography services. The photographer takes excellent photographs and her prices are very reasonable for the high quality work that she provides. She was very laid back, yet very professional and she was great working with kids.
The wedding photographs were the one thing my husband and I did not want to skimp on, and we absolutely love our pictures! Gina was very easy to work with. She met with us beforehand to learn what we were looking for, and she made sure we got all the shots we wanted during the wedding and reception. She was professional and efficient, moving everyone smoothly through all of the portraits. She even managed to capture a few shots of my father-in-law smiling (no easy task)!
I don't know how her prices compare to the average photographer, but I can say it is worth every penny. Gina takes countless pictures and gives a lot of attention to touching up the final images. The wedding party was impressed with Gina, and I have received tons of compliments on the wedding photos.
It was wonderful it was to work with Gina. She has truly created the most beautiful memories for us to remember the most incredible day of our lives.
I have repeatedly went back and looked at our images and fallen in love with them every time. We have received so many compliments on the images stating how creative and beautiful they are. I have also heard more than once that looking at them it is like reliving the day all over again, with every emotion and I couldnt agree more.
Thank you for your professionalism, attention to detail and amazing artistry.
A Truth Be Shown Photography was my best vendor for my wedding. I was extremely pleased with the laid back yet professional way that she approached the whole day. Gina was very flexible to our needs, yet kept things rolling in a manor that did not feel rushed or like we were being pushed more than we wanted to be. Our wedding pictures are more beautiful than I ever could have expected. We are extremely happy with the pictures that truly do document such a special day to us. Gina made us feel like our wedding was the only one that she had going on or that was important. I would high recommend A Truth Be Shown Photography to anyone who is looking for a photographer who is caring, flexible, professional and who take amazing photographs that will document the major and tiny aspects of your wedding day! Thanks Gina.
My wife and I really enjoyed working with Gina. She met with us weeks prior to our event (we had to plan relatively quickly, as we hired her about six weeks prior to the wedding) and really helped us put together a solid timeline for our day. Her enthusiasm was so contagious -- very much in the spirit of the occasion! Her resulting pictures were stunningly beautiful, as was her montage DVD. We will treasure both forever. (Or should we say "until the end of time"? Inside joke.)
Our wedding day timeline turned out slightly differently than planned due to circumstances beyond Gina's control, and though we put her in a tough spot, she handled it well and got fantastic results anyway. We had a March wedding, and we still got the post-ceremony outdoor session we wanted, which yielded downright magical photos of our first hour as married couple.
I only have two regrets: due to the aforementioned logistics issues, we couldn't have Gina and her assisting husband photograph more of our guests informally (we didn't want to go over our contracted time, and our last minute informal group portraits turned out really well). Our wedding reception was a hectic affair, though, and we didn't get a chance to talk with everyone we wanted to, let alone pose for an "official" picture with them. But everyone captured by Gina's lens looked great, especially the bride. (Just as it should be.)
Second, I didn't like when Gina asked me to relax my face for some pictures, because I was so thrilled to marry/be married to Jennifer that I couldn't stop smiling! I got a little self-conscious at that point, but such moments were short-lived and the fun resumed quickly.
We are pleased to give Gina our highest recommendation. She is fun, talented and professional -- and based on the excellent results see got for us and the comparison shopping we did prior to hiring her, quite reasonably priced.
Thanks Gina! We look forward to working with you again. (Maybe I'll have my "serious face" down by then.)
Gina and her second photographer were both amazing. I work in the wedding industry as a makeup artist and have worked with many, many photographers. As such, I have seen first hand many of the experiences other brides have had with certain vendors. I knew exactly what we wanted and with Gina, we got all of that and more. Our experience was so perfect that she is now the ONLY photographer I recommend to brides in the Minneapolis area.
It was important to us that we not only get the pictures we wanted in the style we enjoy, but also that the photographer was able to wrangle our families in what could be a chaotic situation. Gina and Lisa were exceptionally prepared. We finished all of our "must have" shots early, something that rarely happens.
We were working with her from out of state. Her communication was stellar, prompt and thorough. She was flexible in meeting with us when we were in town. She was professional and got all of the shots of our ceremony without being obtrusive or in the way of our guests. Our families loved her.
Most importantly, the quality of the photos is such that even now, months after the fact, I can view them and be brought back to the moment they happened. They tell a beautiful story. She's artful, respectful, and beyond easy to work with.
Gina was awesome as our photgrapher. She had the most amazing candid shots that I would have never seen during the wedding if it wasn't for her. She was so easy to work with and had a ton of great non-traditional ideas. Thank you so much for helping us make lasting memories of our special day!
Stunning work! I just got a few photos back from Gina over at A Truth Be Shown Photography from a Bride that I did makeup & hair for in December and her work is truely beautiful! Very unique style....I definately will highlight these photos on my website gallery page. Gina was also very responsive and I really appreciated her efforts in sending me the photos! Thank you Gina!
Gina is wonderful to work with. Her ability to connect with clients and create beautiful images is amazing! She really captures the special moments of the day!!

With those hair-pulling memories fresh in my mind, I’m here to offer you a hand out of the depths of decision-making despair by providing useful information for choosing the perfect wedding photographer for you. There’s three steps:
1. Compile a short list of your favorite photographers.
2. Meet with your favorite photographers.
3. Decide which is the best match for your style, personality and budget.
Easy peasy. Now let’s get crack a’ lackin’.
1) Who makes the cut: Compiling a list of favorites.
Do you love the photographers’ work? Only consider those you LOVE, and I mean really, really LOVE. When you’re surfing websites during your lunch break (and I know you do), wait for that “Ohhhhh!” moment. If you respond emotionally to a stranger’s wedding, think about how you’ll feel when it’s you in the photograph. If you don’t LOVE a photographer’s work, don’t bother, no matter how tempting the price tag.
Can you work it into your budget? Keep an open mind when it comes to what you can afford and remember that you’re making a purchase for a lifetime not a day. If you think the photographer you absolutely adore is out of your range, consider a smaller package. Six hours with a fantastic photographer are far more valuable than 12 hours with a mediocre one.
2) And the nominees are: Meeting prospective photographers.
Once you’ve determined your list of favorites, make time to meet each photographer in person. You can get the information you’ll need to make your decision by asking the following questions:
Is photography their full-time profession? Full-time photographer’s stake their family’s financial well-being on the quality of their work. That’s some serious motivation to exceed expectations.
How many weddings do they photograph a year? It goes without saying that a photographer who shoots 25 weddings a year is more apt to be at the top of their game than someone who shoots four or five.
Do they specialize in wedding photography? Photographing weddings is a universe unto itself. It involves working with large groups, tense situations, tight time lines, constantly changing lighting conditions, challenging locations, and in spite of all that, everything absolutely, positively has to be right the first time. This kind of photography is not for the faint of heart; it takes experience to know how to accommodate the unique demands of weddings.
Is the photographer you’re meeting the one who’ll be photographing the event? Some studios have multiple photographers. Be sure to meet with and review the work of the person who will actually be photographing your event.
Do they belong to any professional organizations? Membership in professional organizations is a positive sign that the photographer is involved in their professional community and continuing education.
Do they have back-up equipment and insurance? If you’re meeting with a photographer that doesn’t have back-up equipment or insurance, feign a visit to the restroom and escape out the back door. This is one of the few subjects that brings out my snarky side. It’s irresponsible, selfish and just plain stupid to work without backup equipment. It’s the couple and their families that ultimately suffer if equipment malfunctions and there’s no Plan B.
Do they work with an assistant? Assistants allow photographers to focus on what they do best – create gorgeous, meaningful images. Assistants can also make your life easier because they often assist with wrangling family and bridal party members during formal portraits. If your friends and family tend to wander, you’ll appreciate this more than you can imagine.
What exactly is included in the price, and what expenses might there be after the event? Know exactly what your package includes and what products or services might be necessary after your event. Some photographers “back-load” their prices, meaning that although there may be a low up-front cost, there are significant post-event expenses.
3) And the winner is: Making the final cut.
After meeting with photographers, you’ll undoubtedly have connected with some more than others. Don’t underestimate the importance of a good personality match. Your photographer is the only vendor that will be with you ALL DAY LONG! You’ll spend more time with your photographer than you will with most of your guests, so make sure it’s time well spent.
At this point you should have an even shorter list of favorites. To make the final cut, circle back to the beginning and ask yourself again, “Do I love their work?” Can you imagine their photographs on your walls? Can you imagine passing the album on to your children? If the answer if yes, then ask yourself if you can spend your wedding day with this person. And last, but certainly not least, can you make the investment work with your budget?
See, I told you it would be easy.
