"As a bride, you want every detail of your wedding to be perfect.  You found the perfect dress, the perfect flowers, and of course, the perfect partner.  I as a bride, also wanted the perfect wedding photos.  This to me was one of the biggest and most important area in planning our wedding. I dreamed of looking through my photos years later and revisiting our day.  When I say that, I mean that I truly wanted to feel transposed back in time and feel the day just as it was.  Well, I can tell you that our photos tell a perfect story.  I emailed, called, and visited with numerous wedding photographers.  Each call or email ended with "they are good but...." That all ended the day I met Greg and LaRae.  I knew almost instantly that I had found our photographers.  What a pair!!  I loved that they had 2 shooters that not only captured the important photos of the day but also the little moments and details as the day went on.  We have all the photos we could have ever wanted from hair and make-up to the bouquet toss and everything in between.  Their positivity and energy kept the photos moving without feeling rushed.  Their creativity is beyond compare.  Our photos are beautiful, but more importantly, they tell the story of our day from beginning to end.  The photos capture moments that will never happen again, yet we can continue to share these moments with generations to come because of all of their hard work.  I can't say enough about these two. Greg and LaRae had great communication during the planning process and made me feel so comfortable all day long.  Booking these two was the best decision we made. Thank you, Greg and LaRae!!!"

"We couldn’t be more thankful for our experience with Greg and LaRae. Posing for pictures is one of my least favorite things to do, but they kept it stress free, made me feel comfortable, and helped us have fun with everything. We also couldn’t be more impressed with their generous hearts and work ethic, not to mention the finishing result. A year after our wedding, we still love to look through our photos and receive compliments from others on how beautiful they are. Greg and LaRae did a spectacular job with everything, and we have felt repeatedly blessed by them since we first became engaged. Now, as we anticipate the birth of our first child, we look forward to shooting our first family photos with Greg and LaRae."

"Like many other brides, I spent a lot of time on the details of my wedding: invites, programs, centerpieces and the list goes on and on. I wanted a photographer that, along with taking amazing pictures, would capture these details for me so I could remember everything about my wedding day. I am so grateful I found Greg and Larae. It is rare to find a photographer, let alone a pair, that will be on site early and stay late into the evening. They didn't have a time constraint set so the photos were more relaxed which was one less stress for me. During the day, they were patient and almost invisible at times. Looking back at the pictures, I am even more thankful that they were there getting photos of things I didn't get a chance to see myself. The day after the wedding, a bride wants to see pictures.. but with hundreds and maybe thousands of pictures to go through, a quick delivery of proofs isn't realistic. I was so ecstatic to be able to view a variety of the photos in the days following the wedding! It was just what I needed to hold me over until all the photos were ready. The only problem I have with our photos is being able to choose my favorites, since there are so many! We chose the right photographers for this important day in our lives and will recommend them to everyone.

Thanks Greg and Larae!"

"Greg and LaRae gave us the wedding pictures of our dreams! They were like something right out of a bridal magazine. Besides being extremely talented, the Gieske's were also easy and fun to work with... we had zero stress or worry about the pictures on the wedding day, which is how it should be! Highly recommend these two. We still get comments on our pics four years later!"Katie Janssen-Petrick"I just have to give a shout out to Greg and Larae Photography for the most beautiful wedding pictures and wedding video!!! Seriously, if you know of anyone who is getting married, give them their name because they are totally worth every cent and they are extremely reasonable with no time constraints so if you want them for an hour or 12 hours they are yours!"

-Cindy Jones


"When we started looking for a photographer for our wedding, we got online and searched the endless number of websites for a “wedding photographer”. We eventually decided on Greg Gieske Photography to take our wedding and engagement photos because of their captivating and unique website photos – their style was/is undeniably different than other photographers.After working with Greg and LaRae, we cannot say enough good things about these two talented and artistic photographers. Our photos were perfect, completely captured our wedding day from start to finish, including those little details we maybe would have forgotten about! They made everyone in the wedding party feel relaxed and we even had some laughs between shots!It was a great pleasure having them as a part of our special day. The wedding and engagement photos that are still displayed in our home are a constant reminder of their creativity!!!"

"Greg and LaRae discretely caught unique moments throughout our wedding day; from the bridal party primping, to the special embraces from family and friends. They got it all; first glances & smiles of the bride and groom, teary-eyed family members, the walk down the aisle, vows, first kisses, and fun candid shots of the wedding party. They artistically captured special moments and memories that we will cherish and share for the rest of our lives!"
