I have been an artist and photographer since childhood, and have earned my living for most of my life applying those skills - from painting and photography to renovating homes - anything that required vision and creative talent. Through it all, takjng photos of the people and the world around me has been an obsession.
I remember when I was a teenager and had my first darkroom, everyone loved the photos I did because they somehow stood out from the rest. Today I apply that same creativity every time I pick up the camera, whether for photography or video, every image should be interesting, well-composed, and beautiful. To me it's not about earning a living - it's about capturing a moment in time in order to tell a story while leaving behind something of lasting beauty or value.
The thing I enjoy most about my job is the people I work for. They are the ones I want to know about and capture for posterity. To me, every person is special, and the biggest reward I get is when a happy customer calls me after receiving their photos or video and tells me that they absolutely love the work I did. In fact, many brides call and tell me that they cried looking at their photos.
I know that when you hire me, you do so because you genuinely like my work and style and have trust in my abilities. I take that trust very seriously. I want to know what's important to you and I do my best not only to cover those things, but also other moments you may never have thought of, that in the end mean even more...

Gretchen is the kind of photographer who will definitely get that perfect shot for you! She was taking photos throughout the day and far into the night, even when we had told her to stop and enjoy herself. She was extremely professional and receptive to our needs.Sent on 05/18/2014
