  • From the first Skype meeting with Grant to the final delivery of pictures, I experienced nothing but fun, passionate, professionalism. Those adjectives might not seem like they go together, but to describe Grant and his second shooter, Vivienne, they do. Grant made me feel at ease about choosing him to capture our big day through Skype. That should tell you how easy he was to talk to and trust that he would deliver a great product. We live 3 hours from Manhattan, but Grant and Vivienne were willing to do the drive so that we could have pictures at my husband’s farm. The day arrives for our engagement pictures and it’s a gloomy, cold and misty morning. Grant and Vivienne never wavered in their positive attitude and willingness to still get great pictures. They even trekked through cow pastures and climbed into hay lofts! Looking at the engagement pictures, you would never know it was a cold and dreary day. We love them so much! The wedding day came and having Grant and Vivienne ther... Read more

  • Grant was so easy to work with and communicate with from engagement to after the wedding. He made us comfortable in front of the camera and kept us laughing with his dad jokes. I got so many comments about how our photographer never stopped snapping pictures all night, and we got SO many wonderful photos. Grant was very thoughtful with his photos and made sure to capture all of the little details. He helped make our day go smoothly, and even when we started to get nervous on time, he stayed calm and collected and got all the photos we wanted with plenty of time. We can't recommend Grant enough!

  • We can't thank Grant enough for the fantastic experience he gave us while capturing every second during our engagement session and wedding! Grant is truly amazing, professional, friendly, funny, and a very hard-working guy. I can't count how many times we heard from our family and friends how professional, easy-going, and accommodating Grant was at our wedding. He really takes the time from the first meeting to the last picture he takes at the wedding to get to know you and what you are wanting in wedding photos. We had a phone conference with him about a month out from our wedding and he made a set schedule for us to follow on the day of. It was so helpful and our family loved it! He was right on schedule and managed to get every picture we were wanting to get that day. We just got our wedding photos back yesterday and I have already looked through them 5+ times! We are so in love and they will last us a lifetime. Our family told us our best decision in the wedding planning process wa... Read more

  • Grant has been absolutely amazing. From our very first over the phone meeting up until our wedding day, he has been there every step of the way. If you're looking for a reliable and excellent photographer, Grant is your man. Our engagement pictures were so much fun with Grant getting us comfortable in front of a camera and we had them back to us in less than a week! He kept us at ease during the entire process and was extremely easy to work with. He had so many great ideas for pictures and we couldn't be happier. We just received our wedding pictures back as well and they turned out great. I couldn't be happier with my decision to choose and trust Grant to capture one of the most important days of my life. I would recommend Grant to anyone looking for a top notch photographer!!

  • Grant was amazing; our wedding was just under a week ago so we haven’t received our final images yet. Though Grant has posted some previews and we’re thrilled with the results already! Throughout the planning process and shooting our engagement pictures Grant was extremely professional and personable; we had so much fun with Grant shooting the engagement pictures that we decided to book another session, and we loved all of the images. Throughout the planning and day of our wedding, Grant was checking on us to ensure that we were happy and easily rolled with the punches to make adjustments to our timeline and photo shot list if/when needed. People sometimes want/need to save money where they can on a wedding, and they often try to save money on a photographer. If you’re going to spend money somewhere, please use it on a great photographer like Grant. The price you’ll pay is so worth it to have amazing images that will last a lifetime, from a photographer who truly cares! Choosin... Read more

  • Grant was absolutely amazing! We can’t imagine anybody else capturing our wedding day! He is very flexible to work with, captured the small details of our big day (which was very important to us) and is so creative! He provided us with a wide variety of pictures... there was not one that we didn’t like! He made us as well as everybody else feel so comfortable. We cannot speak any higher of how professional he was and how great of an experience he provided!

  • Grant was phenomenal! He was on time/early for everything, he had great ideas and kept everyone laughing and smiling for all the pictures! He was so calming and reassuring on the wedding day. His experience shown through and he was very reassuring and calming throughout the day. He perfectly captured all of our special moments! We couldn't be happier with our engagement and wedding pictures! They are more than we could have ever imagined!

  • Grant was AMAZING to work with! From the initial meeting, my husband and I knew Grant was the photographer we wanted to capture our goofy relationship from his great quality of work, the time taken to get to know us, and willingness to crawl over walls and under fences to get the best shot! He made both our photo sessions during our engagement and wedding so easy and relaxed. My husband and I love the outdoors, so when we asked Grant if we could take more nature and scenic pictures, he was nothing short of delivering pictures that fit our goofy and nature-loving personalities! We're so glad we used Grant to capture our special day. 11/10 would work with him again!

  • I would highly recommend Grant to anyone! Our engagement pictures were a blast and the wedding day photos were even more fun! He is very laid back and easy to work with. Everyone in the Bridal Party and family members commented how amazing he was. He was so flexible. He made sure to capture everything I wanted and went above and beyond to get some really special photos. I was a little worried about how chaotic family photos might be with so many people involved but it was a breeze with Grant directing everyone and it went smoothly! Our photos were sent to us in a timely manner. There was a great variety of photos and we absolutely loved them as did all our family and friends. Grant is clearly gifted at what he does and it's evident he enjoys doing it!

  • We could not have been any happier with our decision to have Grant, and his second photographer Courtney, as part of our big day! We were looking for a high quality, reasonably priced photographer with great coverage and a second shooter, and Grant was the perfect fit for all of those requirements! Grant was so easy to contact and coordinate with before, and made sure everything ran perfectly from our engagement pictures to the last moments at the reception. They even traveled a few hours away to our location for no extra charge, and fit perfectly into the plan of our day while being a total blast to have around. Not a minute was out of place, and Grant kept us calm and running smoothly all day. We have been so happy with every photo we received from him so far. We received our engagements pictures back in a few weeks, and we got a HUGE sneak-peak album just the day after the wedding! I can not say enough wonderful things about these two. If we had to do it all over, I would choose Gra... Read more

  • Grant was absolutely amazing! He definitely takes the extra time to get to know you in order to create a photography experience that works with you and your significant others personalities. He's laid back but maintains excellent professionalism. What I loved most is that even though he's pretty popular and shoots almost every weekend, he works quickly and efficiently to get your photos back to you. I'm not saying it's the same with every couple, but we received our wedding photos in less than a month! Sure, he's a higher priced photographer, but you definitely get what you pay for and more. WELL WORTH IT. Would highly recommend to friends and family, and anyone looking for excellent photography!
