When Rick and Larissa mentioned that their wedding would be at Chevy Chase Country Club, I was excited.  I know from the start that it would be not only a very beautiful wedding, but also very romantic.  Of course, having a wedding party that will do anything the bride says, is very helpful.  Although we’ve photographed outside, on the golf course, after the ceremony, they wanted some nighttime wedding photography, and  they brought sparklers, which ended up being a lot of fun.  And the photos turned up great.  I wish them the best in everything.

On Jan. 16, 2016 I had the pleasure of taking part in one of the most elegant and well organized Bridal Expos at Stan Mansion in Chicago.  As large as it was, it had great intimacy and even better connection between vendor and future bride and groom.  Vendors that took place at this wonderful event were Art of Imagination for event design, fabric and lighting. Delicious food by D’Absolute Events & Catering, Cocina Fusion, Ovy Signature Catering, Beyond Events Chicago, Ani and Arami.  Flowers decor and flower demonstration by Juliet Tan Floral Design. Table scapes by Tablescapes Event Rentals.  Sweets by Oak Mill Bakery and Bombon Cake Gallery.  Photo and video by Rudy Valentino Photo + Cinema and Gia Dragoi Photography.  Stand and Clap DJ,.  Rose Wedding Ceremonies.  The Left Bank Jewelry & Bridal Finery.  Wedding gowns by Dimitra’s Bridal Chicago.  Custom designed letterpress invitations and stationery by Lucky Invitations, Northern Decor custom decor, Photo-booth and more.  Everyone was incredibly professional and courteous as well as friendly and welcoming.  I look forward to being invited to the next Bridal Expo hosted by the great Stan Mansion in Chicago.

Emmanuel and Vanessa’s surprise engagement in Chicago, Illinois


Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos

Emmanuel and Vanessa’s surprise proposal was my very first truly traditional Mexican proposal, mariachi and all.  It was wonderful.  She had no idea what he was planning.  Nervous as he was, he walked up to her house with a band of mariachi behind him and got down on one knee.  She wasn’t expecting it at all, and having the opportunity to be there, to capture her facial expression was great.  I wish them only the best.

Samaneh and Amir’s wonderful, Persian wedding at Hilton Orrington, Evanston Illinois

Samaneh and Amir’s beautiful wedding was my very first Persian wedding.  And I must say I love every second of this tradition, by far one of my favorite cultural weddings.  She did a great job at choosing the right people for the right job.  The florist did an amazing job, not only with her flowers, but with the entire floral design for the ceremony as well as the reception.  Also, the food was incredible.  A great mix between Persian and American food.  The photo-shoot started at the Palmer House Hotel, then we went to Buckingham Fountain, followed by the Planetarium.  We tried to go to all places where we had their engagement session done.  They are a wonderful couple and I wish them the best in their marriage.

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photo shoot at Navy Pier, Chicago Illinois


Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos

Cameron and Elisabeth’s surprise engagement photos were nothing if not utterly exciting.  From having to change locations due to very heavy rain and thunderstorms, to finding just the right location in the last minute and a future fiancee-to-be who was running out of patience, I had my work cut out for me.  But in the end, the moment was truly a surprise for her and the rain slowed down a bit, just enough to propose and enjoy the Navy Pier fireworks.  I wish them the best in their marriage.

Georgiana and Dacian’s beautiful wedding at Versailles Restaurant and Banquet in Buffalo Grove, Illinois

Georgiana and Dacian’s wedding was exquisite.  Beginning with her very beautifully detailed, laced wedding dress to the flowers and reception hall set up.  It was all done with the outmost style and elegance.  Well combined colors for the hall and great food.  Live music and party people make for a very fun wedding.  I wish them the best in their marriage.

Brighan and Sam’s unique engagement photo session in Lincoln Park, Chicago Illinois


Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos

This beautiful couple wanted to have their engagement photos to have foliage as much as the city, so we decided on Alfred Caldwell Lilly Pool and downtown Chicago.  After a very rainy day, we had the craziest luck and had the only 2 great weather hours for the day.  So after we finished the the Lilly pool, we decided to stop by the Nature Museum where the nicest fog happened.  And for someone who likes fog, I was very exited of the photos we came to take.  Downtown Chicago is beautiful no matter what, so we spent about an hour there.  I wish Brighan and Sam the best of everything in their marriage.

Araceli and Fred’s beautiful spring engagement photo session in Chicago, Illinois

For Araceli and Fred’s beautiful spring engagement photo session we decided to really show Chicago.  So we went to Buckingham Fountain, North Avenue Beach (which happens to be one of my favorite spots) and Millennium Park.  Luckily for us, we caught great weather and just the perfect amount of sun.  It’s easy to have fun during work and you photograph such a wonderful couple.  They are just great and I wish them only the best in their marriage.

Shannon and Cody’s winter engagement photos in Chicago, Illinois


Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos Chicago Wedding Engagement Photographer Gia Photos

Shannon and Cody truly wanted to capture winter in Chicago, and that’s why we decided to first go to Lincoln Park, and then to North Ave Beach.  It’s no surprise that one will find great spots anywhere in Lincoln Park, but haven’t been at North Avenue Beach in quite some time, I was pleasantly surprised to see the beach looking like a another planet almost.  The frozen snow on the sand make for quite a unique look in photos.  I’m very happy that this wonderful couple decided to be a little risky for our engagement photos.  Best wishes to them.
