She was so incredible and enthusiastic. It felt truly trike she was excited to be there, not like a job and had so many great creative ideas that have amazing one of a kind shots that don’t feel tacky or forced or even replicated. Most importantly to me she went out of her way to make my brother an adult with special needs feel safe and comfortable."

"Gretchen is so incredibly talented!! Her skills with lighting, color, and framing are just breathtaking. She included engagement photos with our wedding photo package, and did an amazing job with both. She has a great familiarity with Rocky Mountain locations, and took us to some stunning spots to take photos. She is full of creative energy and ideas, and not afraid to hike through anything (even in the dark) to get great shots! Plus she has an easy-going friendly personality, and reliable communication. I searched for months to find the best wedding photographer for us, compared against soooo many, and can confidently say we found the perfect choice! Gretchen is the absolute best."

"We worked with Gretchen for our engagement shoot and our wedding. Not only is she incredibly organized and professional, working with her is downright FUN. She keeps the energy and gives really constructive feedback moment-to-moment about posing, natural lighting, location. We knew each time she flipped the tiny camera screen around to show us that our photos were looking great, but the final edited product is truly art."

"Gretchen is the absolute best! She brought energy and ease to the entire day. From photographing special moments with the groomsmen to an impromptu dance party with the bridal party, Gretchen helped make our intimate mountain wedding truly personal. She listens, encourages, and is there at all the moments you want to remember. Her eye for photography is unmatched. All of our friends and family who see our wedding photos are instantly impressed by the talent of Gretchen’s eye!"

"Gretchen is FANTASTIC. She has such an eye for the perfect photo and her mastery of lighting is breathtaking. And it's not just that she's INCREDIBLY talented in her trade, but she is so personable and easy to work with. It felt like we had a friend with us on our wedding day (and engagement shoot!). We will 100% use her for future portraits and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for STUNNING photos. She is a MASTER at her craft."

"Amazing!!! Gretchen was more than we could've asked for. She knew exactly the image of what we wanted, had such a mellow and calming demeanor we really appreciated on a more than normal stressful day, and her pictures are amazing!!"
Meredith & Chad
"Gretchen was absolutely fantastic! She had great ideas for locations and made us feel very comfortable during the portrait session. On the big day she was prompt and professional even when our own schedules inevitably got messed up and things had to be rearranged. She was able to adapt well and got some amazing shots. After the wedding, she got us our photos very quickly and now we can’t stop showing them to anyone and everyone who will let us. If you’re searching for a photographer for a special event, do yourself a favor and hire Gretchen!"

"Gretchen did a wedding photo shoot for us in Estes Park in 2021. We originally got married in in 2020 but due to the pandemic were not able to have a professional photographer at the time. Gretchen made this experience so much fun and we loved exploring Estes Park with her, it made up for our lack of wedding photos so much! She was very professional and knowledgeable and we would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Gretchen!"

"We hired Gretchen for our engagement shoot and wedding. based on reviews and pricing, she was easily the best bang for our buck. Working with her was a breeze. She was very professional yet fun, and not afraid to take charge of the situation on wedding day on our behalf."
Ren & Brianna
“Gretchen is amazing and we can't recommend her enough. She and her team went above and beyond to ensure we were happy, comfortable, and getting what we wanted. From engagement photos to the wedding day to putting together a gorgeous book of our favorite photos, she made it all feel easy and kept us laughing every step of the way. She's super communicative and creative and really listened to our vision while bringing in her own ideas. She also brought an awesome team along with her to make sure everything ran smoothly. Her team managed our uncomfortable family dynamics and giant wedding parties with ease. We LOVE our photos, and everyone we show them to is so impressed. I would absolutely work with Gretchen again, and highly recommend that you hire her for your wedding!”

You were such a pleasure to work with and made everyone feel at ease and natural. You capture moments we didn’t know existed and appreciate that so much.

"Gretchen did an amazing job at our wedding! She is not just the ultimate professional regarding wedding photography or any other type of photography but she truly is a talented artist with the camera. Her images capture great moments. They express so much with her wonderful and creative use of composition, light, contrasts, colors, focus and the many other techniques that she and the truly great photographers use."

"Gretchen was a pleasure to work with! She fit seamlessly into the day and got so many amazing candid shots that would have been impossible to get otherwise.. She seemed to just intuitively understand our vibe and what we were looking for. It's been 7 years since our wedding and I am still in love with our photos. Thank you so much for taking a chance and making our wedding your first."
