We were fortunate enough to be able to work with Justin and Chrissy on for our May 2013 wedding and could not have been happier! Photography was really important to my husband and me, so after doing extensive research, Graddy was the first vendor we booked a year-and-a-half... Read More before our wedding. Anytime after that we had any questions, a response was received the same day an email was sent. Chrissy did a great job of staying in touch with us and reaching out to see if we needed anything, as well. Working with Justin for our engagement pictures was just a preview of how smoothly our wedding day would go. He was so professional and fun and knew exactly what he was doing. And when my husband and I looked at our gallery all we kept saying was "Wow, wow, WOW!" We are absolutely thrilled with each and every image and special moment Justin was able to capture. We are so thankful that we were able to work with Graddy; Justin and Chrissy are both amazing at what they do! It was so wonderful to be able to enjoy our day and not to worry for a second wondering if we were getting good shots. We knew we were in good hands!

My husband and I cannot express enough how much we love our wedding photos! I met Justin almost 2 years ago while I was a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding. Before I was even engaged I knew that I wanted to have Justin take my wedding photographs. I'm never the one to... Read More feel at ease in front of the camera and neither is my husband. Justin and Chris made us both feel so comfortable and natural with each other. The pictures he took show all of our real emotions. The day of my wedding I felt like I was just hanging out with my husband and my closest friends. One of the biggest things that struck me was how Justin and Chris got the most beautiful pictures and we hardly remember seeing them that night after the formal pictures. They were so professional; and at the same time we honestly felt like we knew them for a long time. We have gotten so many compliments on our pictures and can't stop looking at them! If you want professionalism and the most beautiful pictures, you won't go anywhere else!

Impressive work!!

Graddy photography was the best investment that we made for our wedding. From the very first e-mail Chrissy impressed us with her quick replies back to our questions.

Looking at the pictures brings back such good memories of our special day! Not only did they capture details from our wedding, they captured moments that we didn't see such as our flower girl getting her hair stuck in a tree! Throughout the whole process Justin and Chrissy were very honest with us.

When reading countless wedding blogs prior to our wedding, it seemed the main regret of past brides was not investing more or focusing more on photography. You spend so much time planning one day, it makes sense that you'd want fantastic pictures to remember it by. We chose...

We have absolutely loved looking through our wedding photos, and are so excited to get our wedding album. Countless people have told us how amazing our wedding pictures are, based just on the preview put up on facebook by the Graddy Photography page. We decided to hire both Justin and Chrissy for the entire day, which was great. We were able to get multiple angles, it made it easier to do multiple locations, quicker set up for church formals and posed pictures, etc. Highly recommend!!!

My wedding photography experience with Chrissy and Justin of Graddy Photography was outstanding from start to finish. Chrissy was exceptionally prompt, friendly, professional, and detailed in her wedding day preparation emails to me. When I met Justin on my wedding day, he was... Read More also friendly, professional, and immediately put my husband and me at ease. My friends refer to Justin as the "stealth ninja photographer" because most of the time you couldn't see him on the wedding day, but he somehow managed to snap perfectly timed pictures from just the right angles. Our photos turned out beautifully and my husband and I couldn't be happier. The photos truly capture the joy and happiness of our wedding day. Getting our photos taken never seemed awkward, forced, or intrusive; on the contrary, the experience was fun, natural, and spontaneous. I would highly recommend Graddy Photography to all of my friends and family.

I felt like a princess, and my now husband had a great time working with Justin! Thank you thank you for giving us amazingly beautiful pictures that we will treasure for a lifetime :)
