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 loved getting to be a part of Haley and Curtis’s wedding day! It rained most of the day, but we had a couple dry hours in between the ceremony and reception for pictures. The Figge Art Museum provided a beautiful modern location for the bridal party and bride and groom portraits.
Brianna and Ben tied the knot at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. Some of my favorite pictures from the day are the shots of the bridal party just hanging out and having fun before the reception. I also loved the wedding design that featured wildflowers and different shades of pink and purple.
After spending just a short time with Courtney and Timon, it’s clear to me why they are so beloved by their family and friends. They are both incredibly smart and talented, yet humble and kind. Their love for each other and for God is obvious to everyone around them. It was a joy to capture their wedding day!
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.
Caryssa and Blake tied the knot in their hometown, Manchester, Iowa. Their soft pastel color palette included light grey, lavender, navy, and lots of greenery. Their day started out at an old remodeled house, which provided a beautiful backdrop for their details, getting ready pictures, and portraits.
Lucas and Adeara had a unique wedding with so many little personalized details. They worked in references from their favorite shows and games, had tons of board games for their guests to play at the reception, and had the most adorable flower pup and ring dog!
I loved getting to capture Carolyn and Ian’s wedding at the Outing Club in Davenport! These two are the nicest couple and it was a privilege to take their wedding pictures. My favorite part of their day was the ceremony send off in Carolyn’s dad’s bright red ’65 Ford Mustang.
Keith and Heather got married at Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin Illinois. The purple and pink mismatched bridesmaids dresses made for some amazing bridal party pictures. My favorite moment of the day was when Keith saw Heather for the first time as she was walking down the aisle!
