DESTINATION wedding photographer
Hi I'm Gigi! I'm a destination wedding photographer based in Iowa.
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, playing board games, and going on walks with Zeke.
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 film inspired 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!
