Gretchen is not only a creative visionary but an amazingly wonderful and postive person to be around and collaborate. She has attention to detail and really cares about what she does and her clients.
Where do I begin??? Leading up to the wedding, Gretchen was on point with communication. Everything that we discussed was clear and concise. If I texted her at random times, she would quickly respond with the answer, or let me know when she would get back to me. When you're planning a wedding, communication is HUGE and she was on top of it. I didn't have to worry about reaching out to her to touch base or finish up loose ends. She would email/text me with questions or thoughts prior to me even having to think about it. She was without a doubt, no stress. On the day of our wedding, she arrived early, coordinated 20 wedding party (yes, 20) hooligans, and made it look easy. She was creative with her ideas, and made us feel very comfortable. She captured beautiful moments, and also crazy ones that depicted our friends and family to a T. We had a sneak peek the morning that we woke up, even more pictures a week after as we were leaving for our honeymoon, and then the final round just before Christmas so we could plan gifts for family. The pictures were incredible and I look at them daily. Even after all the wedding hooplah, Gretchen and I still stay in touch and I can honestly say that she was the most important, professional, and stress-free part of my wedding!
Side Note: she came and did our engagement photos in Atlanta, GA where me and my husband live. She was on her way to vacation. VACATION. and said that she would swing by so that we could meet her and see what her photographs would turn out like. Get out of here with her customer service! Since the wedding, two of my bridesmaids have booked her for newborn pictures of their growing families, and they relay the same feelings of love for this talented, fun, creative, and laid-back professional. Book. Now.
We hired Gretchen for engagement photos and wedding day photos. When we first met her in person, we absolutely loved her. Just had our engagement session a few days ago, and our love for Gretchen multiplied times 100. I was so nervous and stressed a few days leading up to taking photos, but Gretchen was so easy to work with - the nerves were gone as soon as we started the session. We are so happy with the photos. So, so happy. I cannot even wait to see how our wedding photos turn out.
Gretchen did a wonderful job with the photos she took of our family shortly after Christmas. Not only that, she was a joy to work with! Thanks Gretchen for making our photo session that day such a great experience!
Gretchen’s photography simply put, is magic. She makes true connections with her subject and space and I love how she always plays with light. I have been photographed by Gretchen several times now and every time has been a beautifully positive experience. She has a strong creative vision and knows how to work with you and make the shoot playful to bring out more personality. The shoots I have done have been perfectly illuminating on the strength and beauty of femininity. I am so thankful to have found Gretchen’s art for it has greatly impacted my life! I would absolutely, highly recommend Gretchen’s work to anyone seeking raw and creative images.
