Gretchen Yell is a multi-cultural wedding photographer based in Minneapolis, MN, with a passion for travel and available for destination weddings worldwide. 

Destination weddings and elopements are often times more intimate, luxurious, and budget friendly. There are many destinations around the world with beautiful views that cost a fraction of the price than having a traditional wedding in your hometown. These cost savings allow you to become more creative with your plans. You can rent a vintage car for the day or have a mariachi band come and serenade you. These luxurious add-ons, along with the gift of travel, give you and your significant other an experience you’ll never forget. 

As someone with a passion for travel and culture, I have lived in three other countries outside of the US and understand the challenges of language barriers, visas, and cultural differences. You deserve to have a photographer who is flexible and knowledgable to tell your love story. I understand that each destination and multicultural wedding is unique and I am happy to create a custom offer based on your needs. Please provide as many details in your inquiry below. I can’t wait to talk to you!

Why should you consider a
destination wedding?

Why should you consider a
multicultural wedding?

If you and your significant other come from different cultural backgrounds, planning a multi-cultural wedding is a great way to honor your traditions and families. Multicultural weddings last between one to three days with many types of ceremonies incorporated. You can also honor your heritage with food, heirlooms, and multiple outfits. This is a significant milestone in your life, and it’s worth celebrating big.
