Hi, my name is Gretchen


Its Nice to Meet you


I am a west coaster turned southern girl that, above all, believes in love, and I think that everyone you hire on your wedding day should care about you. l want to show up to your wedding and guide you so that you’re relaxed (and look oh so natural) for photos. At my core, I am a caretaker, and I want to go above and beyond to ensure you receive beautiful, magazine worthy images from your day. Honesty, transparency and attention to detail are my top priorities, and I will do what it takes so that you and your crew look your best. Flyaways? Im on it. Crooked ties? I’ve got your back. I’m not afraid of jumping in and making sure everything is in its right place.

I’ve always had an artistic personality and a flare for the dramatic, and my passion began when I started work as an editorial photographer. My career has taken me to events including Bridal Fashion Week, the Kentucky Derby, galas, runway shows and festivals. My client list outside of my wedding work features television personalities, celebrity chefs, fashion designers, museums, liquor brands and event planners and businesses large and small from around the globe.

So, take a look around, drop me a line or find me on social media. Let's grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, and talk about what makes you, you. I can't wait to show the world your story. 


The Reason Why


Let’s Hear it for the Boys

 Meet my babes, lovingly known as Uno and TT. They get all the credit in regard to my career. They are the Cheese to my Macaroni and my number one Motivators. Forever my biggest fans, they are both budding photographers themselves (Uno says he wants to be one when he grows up…If he doesn’t become Batman instead). My career gives me the freedom to take them to the beach every summer, buy video games, and be home most nights to tuck them in. If you want to hear some of Uno’s quippy antics or see what kind of heros TT is currently obsessed with, make sure to follow along (especially in my IG stories) www.instagram.com/hernameisgretchen
