"My style is that of a storyteller, documenting the moments of the day with a creative eye. I prefer not over posing or over staging, when things happen naturally and organically - that's the true magic. There is no greater power than that of a great story, and purposeful storytelling isn’t show business - it’s just real life."

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!
