  • Grant did an awesome job with both our engagement and wedding photos! He's such a people person, is very flexible with his time, and does great work! He gets your pictures back to you very quickly and is very responsive if you have any questions or concerns. I cannot recommend using Grant Watkins Photography highly enough.

  • What can I say about Grant...I knew when we took our engagement photos that we were going to have so much fun with him on our wedding day and I wasn't wrong! Grant makes sure that you and you significant other is comfortable and always laughing on your wedding day!! My husband and I enjoyed our experience with Grant so much and hope to stay in touch with him!! He helped make our special day so relaxed and full of laugher! Not to mention the photos turned out even better than I thought they would! He does such amazing work and work hard to get you what you want out of your wedding day! He truly captures the love and laughter that my husband and I share together. I will always recommend Grant! He is the best!! And hey if you can get my husband to like you when you are a KSU fan (along with me!) you know it's gonna be good! Lol

  • Grant was the absolute perfect photographer for us! My husband is goofy and wanted to have fun taking pictures. Grant did an awesome job feeding his silly picture ideas while also capturing so many amazing pictures that we will both cherish forever. We enjoyed working with Grant because he was professional at all times but also fun and played off of our personalities and joked with us. He made taking pictures fun and not awkward at all. He also fit perfectly into our budget for a photographer and we were blown away with the quality of his work. We also received our wedding pictures way faster than I expected, so nice to be able to view them a few weeks earlier than you think! I would highly recommend Grant to anyone needing a wedding photographer!

He is so professional and always willing to accommodate. He replies quickly to emails and has a great personality to work with! I would recommend him to anyone, our engagement and wedding pictures were so beautiful and I have zero regrets!

  • Grant is the absolute best! He was amazing to work with the whole time, we had a wonderful experience with our engagement photos and couldn't ask for anything else when it came to the wedding day. They were there early, stayed late and made sure to capture all the little moments that we didn't even realize where happening! I really cannot recommend Grant enough as a photographer! His work is beautiful and makes you feel amazing when you see yourself in his photos. He and his second photographer are really fun people to be around and a great addition to any wedding day!

  • I highly recommend Grant Watkins as your photographer. He is so much fun to work with and keeps the atmosphere relaxed and fun! He is also very creative with his work and takes so many neat pictures! He is extremely knowledgeable in photography and knows all of the awesome poses to do. He works very hard and is up for anything. No matter if it's rain, shine, snow, or freezing out, he is willing to go above and beyond to get the perfect pictures! He started super early and stayed super late just to make sure he never missed a moment. The quality of his work exceeds expectations, and that is because he is truly passionate about what he does. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer or better photos. He captured every beautiful moment! Thank you Grant for being so amazing!

  • I was nervous about our photos. I am one of those self-conscious brides and my then fiance didnt want to spend an arm and leg finding a good photographer. A friend recommended Grant Watkins Photography to us and from the moment we met with him in a coffee shop to just "talk" wedding photos, we were both sold. Grant has a way of getting you to really enjoy the moment you are in and after receiving our engagement photos, we were in love and confident in our choice. Our entire wedding was smooth and Grant and his partner captured every moment of it. We couldnt have asked for a better photographer. He was truly our best investment!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Grant. He is extremely easy to work with and he makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Our photos were absolutely beautiful and we had a great time taking them! When all the action was happening I didn't even notice him or the other photographer taking photos, yet we have tons of wonderful photos of every moment! I am so glad we chose Grant Watkins Photography and we highly recommend him!!!

  • Grant was so great to work with! He really goes above and beyond in working with his clients. He was easy to reach, responsive to messages, and spent time really getting to know us so by the time we were at the wedding it felt like he was another friend celebrating our day who happened to also be taking the pictures. I especially enjoyed working with Grant because he was willing to show up when needed and stay as long as needed - he didn't count the hours and skip out at the end. He provided us with 800+ wedding photos in a style consistent with his (impressive) portfolio and our wedding party loved having him around. He had great ideas and weaved our ideas into our wedding photos and they came out great! He helped guide our day of time line and provided feed back on the flow of the day. He was with the girls in the morning getting ready all the way to the send off. He was timely with providing both our engagement photos and wedding photos at the quoted time and provides digital copies... Read more

  • Grant and Rachel are the best around. Can't say enough about how awesome and flexible they are to work with! You can tell they really love what they do and Grant was a huge help in planning the timeline for the day as well. You can't beat two photographers and all day coverage, worth every penny.

  • Here's why asking Grant to be our engagement/wedding photographer was one of the best decisions I made while planning our wedding: 1) He was EXTREMELY quick in responding to my emails. I typically heard from Grant within the same day! 2) The "ownership" of all the pictures was awesome. After our wedding, Grant sent us a USB drive with all of our pictures. We were also able to download them from online. 3) The sessions were super fun! My husband and I had a blast during out engagement and wedding shoots. We are kind of weird and Grant captured the many aspects of our personalities in his photos. 4) The turn-around time was pretty good. It always FEELS like forever to get photos back after a shoot because you are so anxious to see them but Grant got us our engagement photos back in less than three weeks and our wedding photos back right around a month and a half. It is also exciting to see his little "sneak peaks" within a couple of days after your shoot. He knows how to... Read more

  • We had an overall fabulous experience with Grant! From engagement pictures to wedding pictures, he helped make our day better. We had fun taking the pictures and so need everyone that was apart of our wedding. We got so many great pictures back from the wedding and we couldn't be happier, so glad we have all these great pictures to help us relive the best day ever!

  • We are so glad we choose Grant as our photographer for our wedding! He was absolutely amazing from our first conversation to the delivery of our wedding photos. We loved that Grant took the time to get to know us beyond just taking our wedding pictures. It made us feel comfortable in front of him on our special during those emotional moments! Grant was not only extremely professional, he was fun, outgoing and very polite! We received hundreds of photos back from our wedding and every one of them we loved! We highly recommend using Grant Watkins Photography! Thanks you so much for helping make our wedding day perfect! Eric and Jenny

  • I do not regret picking Grant for our wedding this past year. He is 100% professional (sometimes slow to respond to email, but always gets back to you), and overall I was REALLY happy with the pictures we received. Grant's strengths are in candid images- he caught so many wonderful moments at the wedding in a way that I love- and also detail shots of the reception, dress, and accessories. What I think he could improve upon are the formal portraits; some were a little awkwardly posed, my dress had a long train and was different in almost every shot and looked really weird a lot of them (something I feel like they should notice and say something about) and in other group photos people are really inconsistently posed- I also admit to being a little Type A, so if you are too, just know to watch for those things yourself the day of (or maybe designate a friend to help keep an eye?) and you'd be just fine. Let me be clear- totally loved our pictures, and they were worth the wait. Many thank... Read more
