GRETCHEN GAuse


Gretchen, Our jaws are on the floor. Our families' jaws are on the floor. All possible jaws are on the floor." 

—  Parker

“Our photos
are truly magazine worthy.”

— Kelsey, 2024 bride 

I'm Gretchen. My approach?

follow the tenderness

Inspired by everyday simplicities that could easily be overlooked, I'm in awe of the minute within the grandiose; the way evening light falls on the road and on folks' shoulders walking downtown hand in hand; the soft color tones that a filmmaker chooses, inspiring the very way we experience a cinematic scene. I'm inspired by the tiny pink vintage roses that bloom in spring on my walkway and the wondrousness of it all witnessed by the children in my life; like sweet Teddy, 3, exploring what it's like to walk down the way on his heels. I'm inspired by the small tender hearted elements of life that make it all so warm & beautiful.
