Moody Couples Session at the Rad Photographers Retreat in Waupaca Wisconsin
I have known these two for nearly 10 years or so. I met Gretchen while working my first job in La Crosse while I was there for school. She was one of the first real friends I met down there and the only one I still talk too. She has been a major supporter since I started photography, I photographed her while she was pregnant with all three of her babes. It has been amazing seeing her beautiful family grow and her marriage get more beautiful every year!
I was over the moon when Gretchen said that she and Jason would model for our retreat! I was like WHAT!? They drove a long way just to model for a few hours. I don’t know if I can ever repay them for their kindness! Every time Jason talked about awesome he thought the retreat was and how proud he was made me want to cry. These two have a very special place in my heart!
Why did I have a couple come model that was NOT a wedding couple? Because I want attendees to get creative with other kinds of sessions. Not just wedding posing and images that can pad their social media and portfolio. Gretchen and Jason were simply perfect for this too! They were adorable, real and have killer style. I loved hearing that the attendees loved having another couple that wasn’t a wedding couple. It allowed them to be more creative and it was something they needed, yet they didn’t know they needed.
Again, so very thankful for these two and I cannot wait to photograph them again in July!
