"Virginia Hodges is my favorite photographer of all time. As a model, I use the photographer's energy to let my poses and attitude and persona grow further... and she gave me the energy of a fireball. Our ideas collaborating were endless and unique and jaw-dropping. I will never forget that photoshoot! Not only is she the most talented photogrpaher I've ever worked with but she's has a kind and supportive heart. Virginia brings out the best of models when in a photoshoot.

I first met Virginia in Chicago at an Old Hollywood photo shoot and found her to be one of the most friendly and professional photographers I have ever worked with. Because Virginia was so positive and complimentary with all the models that day, she created a rarely experienced calming work environment that we all appreciated and that resulted in amazing work products. I’m a big fan of Virginia’s art work and am so impressed with her unique vision, dedication and hard work, which speaks for itself when I viewed her gallery of work. I’m very fortunate to have met an artist/photographer like Virginia and hope to work with her again in the future. If you want a professional who will put in the time and effort to provide you with the best photos ever, I highly recommend Virginia!
Sometimes you meet such an amazing person in the most unusual way. Virginia Hodges was photographing the fashion runway show at Caesar Palace in Atlantic City, and we showcased some of our avant-gard couture right in between Michael Kors and Tiffany Diamonds. She graciously sent us some of her amazing photos and we instantly became facebook friends, inviting her to shoot here with us in Chicago. Several years and many photoshoots and runways later, we are still completely bedazzled at her talent and unique eye for capturing just the perfect pose! Besides being the very best at her craft, she has a heart of gold and is unstoppable in her work ethic and ability to focus with dozens of models and support personnel buzzing all about. She has been a true friend and amazing blessing to us and our Couture House. Bright and cheerful and upbeat, everyone benefits from her gifts. It is unusual to find all that in one professional! We wish her all the success in the world!
