Iowa wedding and portrait photographer
Hi I'm Gigi, a wedding and portrait photographer in the Quad Cities! (Davenport, Bettendorf, Moline, and Rock Island located along the Iowa and Illinois sides of the Mississippi River).
The things that make me happiest are quiet nights at home, getting coffee with a good friend, and sunny days. I'm a pretty laid back person and couldn't care less about makeup, doing my hair, or the latest fashion trends. When I don't have a camera in my hand, you'll usually find me hanging out with my husband Jake and our dog Zeke. I used to be a cat lady until I saw a picture of Zeke online and begged my husband to let us adopt him! Jake and I love kayaking, riding our bikes, and going on walks with Zeke.I also love cooking and eating delicious foods. I try to be healthy but the truth is, I have a major weakness for junk food... Flamin' hot Cheetos and Smores Poptarts are my downfall!
I've always loved documenting life. When I was in junior high, I carried my camera with me in my backpack, always ready to capture the next exciting moment. After a while of just documenting, I began wanting to not just capture memories, but capture them beautifully.
My dad got me my first DSLR camera as my high school graduation present and my interests led to Maranatha Baptist University where I studied digital media marketing. While in college I also bought some new gear and officially started my photography business! Since then I've gained a lot more experience and (through a lot of trial and error) developed my own personal style. I love capturing light and colorful images that tell your story. Whether that's your love story, your wedding day, or the story of your family.
So that's about me... but I'd love to get to know you! Send me a message and we can chat! I can't wait to hear from you!
