Grant Smith was an amazing photographer. Our first meeting with Grant was very informative and personable. We covered all event schedules, brainstormed venues for scenic shots, and simply got to know each other. It was very apparent from the start that photography was more than a job for him, and that he truly wanted to get to know us as a couple.
Our first shoot was for our engagement photos and they were so much fun. We were with him for around three hours and time flew by despite it being very hot and humid outside. He finds the unique shot. The last location of our engagement photos was at a lake and when we got there we were so hot and exhausted. The solution? Grant had us jump in the lake. At first the two of us were pretty apprehensive as neither of us were expecting to go for a swim that day, but Grant took the lead and jumped in first. The photos taken there came out amazing and it's obvious in the pictures that we were having so much fun.
At our wedding, Grants character and professionalism shined again. It was the first time anyone aside from my husband and I had met Grant but everyone felt so comfortable around him. Even with the posed photos, Grant was able to capture the “non-posed” joy and playfulness of our families. After the wedding, our families kept complimenting us on how we found such an easy going and fun photographer. He was always quick to respond to any questions, and was in constant communication to share with me “sneak peek” pictures prior to the release and we cannot wait to see the rest. We are thrilled we went with him for our wedding photographer.
