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.
I had the best morning with Jacey and Reed! These two are crazy about each other which made the session effortless. We had so much fun taking pictures in downtown Cedar Rapids and at Lake MacBride. We even got a few with their fur baby, Rooney!
The Old Capitol Museum in downtown Iowa City was the perfect spot for Jenna and Tanner’s engagement session since they met while in college at the University of Iowa. These two get married in a little less than a year and I couldn’t be more excited to be the one to capture their big day.
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.
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.
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.
Nikki and Tanner have known each other since preschool. They started dating in high school and eight years later, they’re getting married! I loved taking their engagement pictures. I was definitely excited that they added their pup, Fiona, in for a few shots!
We took Ashley and Vic’s engagement pictures along the Davenport Riverfront and had a nice sunny evening. I enjoyed getting to know these two and learned that one of their favorite hobbies to do together is working out. They love to run marathons which definitely impressed me!
The weather for Erin and Ethan’s engagement pictures in Davenport was SO hot! Despite the heat, these two had great attitudes. I enjoyed shooting these pictures in the East Village and Downtown and am looking forward to shooting their wedding.
