COUPLE SESSIONS, INTIMATE ELOPEMENTS & WEDDINGS
~ available worldwide ~
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.
As we see it, photography is a necessity. It's the artful expression of the happiest moments of our lives, the living memory of the moments we never want to forget. It is the proof we keep in times of happiness and darkness alike that affirms the beauty and joy of life. Above all though, it is the documentation of who we are and the portrayal of the human connection. To us, that connection is what it's all about. To that end, we would love to meet with you over tea and hear your story.
BEFORE THE WEDDING
There is nothing quite like documenting the authentic emotions of your wedding day but we also love those little love moments between the two of you. A laid-back couple session, either engagements or formals, is the perfect chance to tell your love story in a truly cinematic artful way - at a time when we can better control the lighting and the elements. It is a time to be together and connect away from the pressures and stresses of wedding planning. We will of course work with you to pick out the perfect location, be it in the mountains or in-home or someplace in between, but what really matters is that beautiful memories (and images) are made!
To us, documenting a wedding between two people who truly love each other is as good as it gets. We believe that any style wedding can be beautiful, from a big blow-out to a small gathering to something more non-traditional and intimate, so long as the focus is on you. We offer options for one or two photographers, as well as options for full or partial day coverage and you'll always receive the edited, high-resolution digital files with every package. We also offer videography, a truly unique photo booth, and a full range of printed goods to preserve your story for generations.

"i wanted movement and not a calm course of existence. i wanted excitement and danger and the chance to sacrifice myself for love." -LEO TOLSTOY
We have worked with dozens of videographers over the years, and almost all of them have been great to work with. However, there are some definite advantages to booking videography and photography together. The relationship between your wedding videographer and photographer is critically important. A strong, healthy partnership between the two professionals contributes to assuring that you will receive high quality photos and videos of your wedding day, and an increased creativity rather than a tug-of-war between creative minds.
With that in mind, we've partnered with some of the most kick-ass videographers anywhere. Together, you can be confidently assured that partnering with Grey Giraffe for both photo and video will ensure a smooth and creative workflow and environment on your big day.

THE PHOTO BOOTH
OUR PHOTO BOOTH IS NOT LIKE THE ONES YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE...
We designed our Photo Booth ourselves to be unique and a form of entertainment all on its own. Perfect for weddings, our Photo Booth is not a closed off box that fits 2-3 people, but rather a large format setup that accommodates large groups! The premise is very simple: let your guests pile in and watch the party come alive!
We set up a large pure white screen, a camera on a tripod, and a studio strobe. You and your guests stand in front of the screen and say cheese! Once the picture is taken it is instantly synced to an iPad where your guests can view the images (which is great for doing retakes!), and write down their email addresses. After the event, you and your guests will receive a link via email to an online gallery where they can view and download the high-resolution pictures, as well as share them on social media. You can order prints from us or make prints yourself with the digital files.
How often will you have the opportunity to take as many studio quality images of you and your friends as you'd like on a pure white background? Exactly. :)
The Photo Booth can be added on to any wedding package for $750. We are located in Utah but our setup is such that we can fly our Photo Booth anywhere. Contact us here for more information.
