"They were easy to work with from start to finish!"

Gray Area Photography and Video did such a great job at our wedding. They were easy to work with from start to finish. Their artistic talent and vision really shined. We could tell they have a lot of passion for their craft and they poured it into every picture. I couldn’t recommend them higher. Thanks Donnie!

My style is that of a storyteller, documenting the moments of the day with a creative eye. Never over staged or over posed, always natural and organic. There is no greater power than that of a great story, and purposeful storytelling isn’t show business - it’s just real life unfolding naturally and organically.

FAQ

Do you have a back up camera?

Yes, absolutely! I shoot with 2 pro-level Nikon full frame DSLR rigs with Nikkor FX gold-ring lenses. And also have a Panasonic 4K DSLR as a 3rd backup.

How would you view yourself as a photographer?

I'm storyteller and my approach is documentary. I'm a big fan of not over-posing people, I'll over ideas and suggestions but I much prefer letting things unfold natural and organically. I genuinely believe this is how you make people feel most comfortable and look the most like themselves.

Do you do your own editing?

Yes! 100%. I take pride in my years of extensive photo and video editing, and I would never consider farming editing out to a 3rd party editor. I touch every photo you receive from me at least 4-5 times before I release it. Color correction is also very important to me. I also have years of audio recording experience and pay a lot of attention to capturing great audio of your vows in videos.

Do I get all of the photos from the wedding?

Every wedding is different, and while I don't count the number of frames I shoot, it typically runs between 50-80 per hour, sometimes more, sometimes less. You'll be able to download all your photos upon completion of the editing process.

How far in advance should I book you?

I usually book weddings 6 to 12 months in advance. I do only take a limited number of weddings each year so that I can concentrate on delivering the best possible experience and quality to each of those clients.
