Hello and welcome. I'm Gigi! I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Eastern Iowa.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. This is where I share recent weddings and shoots, tips for brides, and tips for photographers.
2018 was an amazing year! It was my first full year of being a full time photographer, which I loved. God gave me so many opportunities and I had the privilege of shooting 23 weddings, 13 engagement sessions, 12 families, and a few other sessions. I was able to shoot weddings and engagements here […]
I had a perfect afternoon taking Maddie and Patrick’s engagement pictures. We started at Palisades Kepler State Park and enjoyed the sunshine. To end the session, we got some shots at their favorite local coffee shop! These two are both kind and easy going and I’m already looking forward to their wedding.
James and Abigail had a gorgeous winter wedding in Fairfax, Virginia. They completely transformed their reception venue into a winter wonderland with lots of lights, Christmas trees, and floral arrangements. My favorite part of the day was the surprise song that James wrote and sang for Abigail during their reception.
We had a sunny evening with some beautiful fall colors for Meagan and Tony’s mini session. Meagan has an eye for style and interior design, so I wasn’t surprised to see how perfectly their outfits coordinated. Despite the cold and wind, these two made the session so fun.
The last time I had the Hofmann family in front of my camera was when I was just getting started with photography. It was so nice to be able to take their pictures again, a few years later. It was a windy fall day, but the sun was shining and we still got some great shots!
We had a warm fall evening for Becca and Austin’s engagement session in Iowa City. These two know exactly how to make each other laugh. I was so excited when Becca asked if she could bring their fur baby, Duke. He was an adorable addition to their session.
We were able to capture some beautiful fall colors for Darcy and Chuy’s engagement pictures. To begin the session, we started off at Woodpecker Nature Trail in Iowa City. We were able to take pictures at the exact spot where these two got engaged.
