We want to make creative and authentic images for you. We love to collaborate with adventurous, soulful folks who are as excited about capturing authentic moments as we are. We have a very laid-back, observational approach to our photography. For us, it’s all about your love story and the individual character of your day. No contrived stereotypical images, just letting things unfold naturally and responding creatively.
For us, photography has intrinsic value. Unlike pretty much anything else from your wedding day, good photos become more valuable over time, not less. Investing in a photographer capable of creating the types of photos that tell a story and convey the emotion of your wedding day is so important. When you look through your wedding album in 35 years, you should not only remember what that day looked like but also, and more importantly, how it felt.
Photography has that kind of power. A good picture conveys the emotion, and connection, and empathy between two people that no other medium can. Creating that sort of art is addicting. It drives us.
If you value and want to create images that embody that kind of lasting feeling, we’d be a great fit for you!
“Words can’t express how great it was working with Alan and Whitney! We did an engagement shoot with them in February and then they shot our wedding 11 months later. Both experiences were flawless. Not only are we so happy with our photos but we had a fun experience along the way! They work well as a team and provide the right amount of guidance while also not making the experience “posed.” We really felt like we were friends with them and trusted their advice along the way. They were also efficient yet made sure to get the important shots that we needed. For example, our wedding party was so happy that they didn’t have to stand around for a long time for photos since it was cold out. I could really go on and on and I have zero regrets about working with them. I planned our wedding from Chicago so selecting vendors was really difficult and I’m so glad I found GG because we have the best pictures to remember our wedding weekend and engagements AND we had a great time working with them! “

“Where do I even begin?! Words can’t express how much we love Alan and Whitney and how thankful we are for them! I came across Grey Giraffe Photography on Instagram and instantly fell in love with their work. My husband and I really wanted our day to be filled with adventure and intimate, and Alan & Whitney gave us that and more. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and every time we look at our beautiful wedding photos we can still feel all the emotions we felt on our special day. So many decisions go into planning a wedding, but having Alan and Whitney capture your day is one decision you’ll never regret!”

“We had the most amazing experience with Grey Giraffe Photography. Alan and Whitney were very quick to respond when we first reached out and they helped us customize a photography/videography package that was perfect for our wedding weekend. Alan shot our Engagements about a year before our wedding and did the most incredible job! We had never done a formal photo shoot together as a couple and he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. Alan was so in tune with our style and personalities and it shows in our photos. Alan and Whitney made sure to check in with us through the months that followed and leading up until our Wedding. We opted to have two hours of photography for a welcome cocktail party the night before, and two photographers and a videographer for the entirety of our wedding day. We couldn’t be happier with the results! We will forever be grateful for our wedding video and the hundreds of photos that so perfectly captured our day. If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, or any other event, do yourself a favor and hire Grey Giraffe. Hiring Alan and his team for our wedding was the best decision we’ve ever made!”
