"Thank you so much Gretchen!  These pictures are so beautiful and capture so much about my daughter!  Her sassy side, her beautiful soul, her kind heart.  Some of them remind me of her as the little girl of days gone by and others show me the woman she is becoming.  I am in love with these photos. " - Angila











" I had the best time with Gretchen. She not only made you feel completely comfortable but also made the experience so much fun. She also knows her stuff and made me a pro at poses. She has an extremely talented eye for what angle to use for the picture, what will look good and what won't. While switching different cameras for different effects she makes you feel really good about yourself as well. It was the coolest experience and would recommend her to anyone who asks! She is the BEST! "  - Sammy





“I loved the pictures although it took everything I had not to cry. Sitting looking at my daughter, with her beside me, wondering -- how did she grow up so fast?! Makes me tear up just texting it. So excited to get them and share!” - Barb







"Gretchen captured the beauty and grace of a mother and her love and hopes for her child. My favorite picture of Taya ever!!! Love you both and can't wait to meet this little baby!









"Thank you so much for capturing the TRUE nature of our girl!  We are grateful for your talent and appreciate your time!  I am LOVE, LOVE, LOVING the photos.  I just keep looking at them! It is hard work raising good people and I love that you can see Madison's goodness and kind heart through the photos!
Thank you again!" - Hollie


"We had a great experience during our session! Gretchen is great at giving directions on how to pose for different shots and works very quickly. I also love how passionate she is about her photography and how humble she is. :)"

Engagement portrait photography Gardnerville, NVEngagement portrait photography Gardnerville, NV "I really enjoyed my engagement session. Gretchen made up feel comfortable right away. It was like any other day but with a camera. She respected our style and adjusted to what we wanted our overall look to be. It was important to us that our dog would be a part of it. I was nervous that is may be in inconvenience for Gretchen but she enjoyed having him in the pictures just as much as we did. I loved having control of picking the exact pictures I wanted. We received them quickly and with care." - Lauren

"What can I say, you're the best. You have worked with our crazy pack of dogs, my cranky, anti-pictures husband, my crazy all over the place child and my pain in the butt and you still are willing to work with us. I have received so many compliments on the photos that you have taken. Our sessions are effortless and easy with you. You are just awesome at what you do, and because you enjoy it, that comes through in working with you."      - Caitlin








"Working with Gretchen was easy & comfortable. She really understands how to work with children in order to get the best shots. When our son got cranky she let him play & be himself which resulted in some of our favorite pictures. She was professional & timely from beginning to end. We would most definitely recommend Gretchen Leigh Photography."     -Matt & Kristy




"Gretchen is professional and very conscientious of her work from the moment of booking an appointment to delivery of her product. She is fun to work with and there for you up to the moment you need to get her opinion on what to wear."     - Cindy







"Our session with Gretchen went great! She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and was great at giving direction."     - Kristine








"I recommend using Gretchen for any of your photo needs. We let her know what type of background we wanted and she came up with two great locations. Between us our kids their spouses and grand children there were ten of us. The grand children’s age range is 6, 4 (twins) and 3 and Gretchen did a fabulous job making sure she got great shots of each of them. Two of the kids were not in the mood to have pictures taken that day and Gretchen got both great family shots as well as individual shots for us to choose from. Her patience with the kids as well as the adults was wonderful. We all meet at my house to go through the proofs it was wonderful to see each photo on the big screen and Gretchen made it very easy for us to make our selections. We love our photo’s Gretchen’s great selection of products gave us exactly what each family was looking. My favorite is my metal photo of the whole family it now graces my entry way."      - Nancy
