    The best thing we did for our wedding

    Hiring Gretchen was truly one of the best decisions we made for our small elopement ceremony (during COVID times). First of all, she was a joy to work with. She is kind and flexible and helped us structure our ceremony so that we would get the best shots and lighting. She came early to scope out good places to shoot. She made us feel so comfortable (even though we had never taken professional photos and were nervous about it). We even forgot that she was there at times! Her photos are so breathtaking-- she captures so much emotion in her photography-- we couldn't believe it.

    Gretchen Gause Photography's reply:

    Thank you Bili!! It was an absolute gift to work with you and your wonderful guests! I love that you all took the time to really spend with your zoom guests even though they were so far away. Totally beautiful. And photographing you two connecting with each other was gorgeous! I'm grateful for the opportunity... Thank you and big hugs!! x Gretchen

    Gretchen is a dream!

    Working with Gretchen was an absolute dream. Her ability to put us at ease and make us feel comfortable and natural in order to capture memories that will be cherished for a life time was so impressive. She was extremely communicative and professional and clearly explained what could be expected from working with her from the very beginning. The images she captured left my husband and I in absolute awe! She worked diligently to make sure we were comfortable during this crazy time of Covid and approached all our concerns and asks with compassion and understanding.
    She brought so much love and joy to the experience and I couldn’t recommend working with her more.

    A gift I'll treasure forever

    Absolutely don't think twice about hiring Gretchen. From the start, photography was one the the most important things to us in our wedding planning process - it is the only way we have to capture the emotion and memories of the day, and it's the photos that will stay with you for years to come. I was so tired of seeing overdone boring "wedding photography" that as soon as I saw Gretchen's work I was in love. Gretchen's photography is so beautiful: perfectly composed, beautiful use of light, and above all she is able to capture emotion and interaction in such a natural way.

    It was so important to us that we have Gretchen with us that day, we actually chose our date making sure that she was available. Being the first person we brought on, I'll also say that beyond her role as a photographer, Gretchen was so helpful to us in other ways - she proposed the first timeline that our coordinator later picked up and was always happy to give the best recommendations for other vendors. She goes above and beyond!

    She is a joy to have by your side on your wedding day. Whoever you hire as a photographer is going to be with you A LOT so this is super important. She has such a calm, wise & thoughtful presence that not only didn't distract, but added to the feeling of the day.

    Looking through our wedding photos for the first time with my new husband (!) was like re-living that day in the most beautiful way, and living for the first time all the moments she captured that we missed. She really gave us a gift that we'll treasure forever. These are now my absolute favorite photos of myself, my husband, and my family. We feel so lucky to have worked with Gretchen, and now we're always trying to think of opportunities to be able to work with her again :)

    Gretchen Gause Photography's reply:

    Ah Devon :) Working with you two was absolutely amazing. I loved your day and you two and your guests and everything about it all!! Thank you for your incredibly kind words and for having me :) So much love to you guys!

I've been working with Gretchen since 2014 and I ADORE her work. She does everything with heart and an amazing eye for art. She treats her clients and other vendors like friends. She is a team player and does what needs to be done to get the job right. As a wedding planner, communication and being on time are two of the most important parts of a wedding day. With so many moving parts, Gretchen always helps find perfect way to make sure the client, guests and vendors get their needs met.I highly recommend Gretchen to anyone looking for a fun, easy to work with and artistic photographer.

When I first started browsing Gretchen's website while planning our wedding 4 years ago, I was instantly awestruck by her intensely emotional story-telling. To be honest, I welled up imagining what our wedding could look like in photos and knew she was the right person for the job. We booked Gretchen right away and ever since I have recommended her to people both personally and professionally. Guess what- they all booked her too! Aside from insanely gorgeous wedding photos, we were so blessed to have Gretchen's support and friendship throughout the planning and execution of such a dauntingly detailed day. Her ability to keep things on schedule, while keeping the mood light was incredible. Not only did we have the portraits we needed, we have incredible images of each detail at each of the *two* venues, and all the little moments in between. The candid shots of our families and friends are cherished as much as the ceremony procession. I can't stress how important it was for us to have her with us the entire day, and it was worth every penny. When we think back on our wedding day, it wasn't just about us. It was about each person in our life that has helped us grow and stay together, and each person who helped create a celebration that honored our community and our union. Gretchen not only provided us with an amazing album of images that truly told the story of our day, but gave us sanity and laughter throughout it all. She is more than just a great photographer, and in the wedding business that means a lot!
