Gretchen was a joy to work with. She made us feel comfortable and ready for anything. We loved our time with Gretchen!! Those she photographs are so lucky to have her talent capture a moment in their lives!!
- Barbara, couples session
Gretchen is a talented, knowledgeable, professional photographer. Our session with her was fun, stress free, and quick. She was very accessible before the session helping us know what to expect and how to prepare (like wardrobe suggestions). During the session, Gretchen was especially great with our 5 year old. She was able to pick up right away when Hannah was getting tired and/or antsy and quickly changed the setting or mood. The resulting photos are wonderful – we love all the shots that Gretchen took. We love the natural settings and lighting. She has a keen eye for capturing little moments that resulted in precious photos. We are so thankful!
-Karen, family session
Gretchen took our wedding photos and did such an amazing job of capturing personal interactions and emotions. I just looked at my album again and couldn't stop smiling. She totally nailed the event.
Extended Family Pictures
Gretchen did a great job with keeping the session going and keeping the kids engaged. We were able to move quite fluidly from one area to the next. She had great ideas for positioning of all family members. Gretchen is such a wonderful person to work with-she's patient and helpful. But most importantly she is a talented photographer. Love her work!
Gretchen was a professional through and through! She made my daughter who is a bit camera shy shine! McKayla had such a great time during the shoot and Gretchen really brought out her beauty both inside and out! I cannot recommend her enough for anyone looking to have gorgeous pictures for any occasion!
