Vicki did an exceptional job capturing our wedding day! Looking back at her beautiful photos a year later, I'm so glad that she was our photographer. She was so friendly and professional and her aesthetic is lovely. The quality of the prints we ordered from her is amazing. We first met her when she photographer my brother and sister-in-law's wedding and knew we had to use her when we got engaged. She also did our engagement session and a pet portrait session of our two pups. Her photos are soft, romantic and have beautiful light. We definitely recommend her!!
We just received our photos (only a month out from our wedding!) and are completely in love with all of them. Vicki captured our day perfectly, and we can't recommend her highly enough. Finding a film photographer was a big priority for us, and we're so, so glad we chose Vicki. Throughout, she made us feel completely at ease, and the photos are stunning, elegant, and--most importantly--natural looking. In every image, she captured all of the joy of our wedding and made it look gorgeous and effortless. Even though our ceremony ran over and our cocktail hour was cut in half, she didn't miss a single detail and still managed to get incredible photos of the decor, the food, and our guests--including extra shots of key family members (even my nephews, who were constantly on the move!). We're having trouble deciding on prints, since there are so many wonderful shots, and feel so grateful that we had Vicki with us to photograph our wedding.
Vicki was one of the best investments we made on our wedding day. We knew that photography was one of the top things on our list that matter to us after the venue. We found Vicki using Style Me Pretty, we loved her style and the beautiful way she captured light/sun using her using film (which is much more beautiful then digital photos) vs digital photography. We emailed Vicki and right away she was VERY accommodating with my schedule and my husband schedule for our first meeting. We previously made appointments with other photographers some just wanted to Skype/Facetime others would want us to meet at a coffee shops, which we guess is normal since their schedule was pretty busy too. But Vicki she invited us to her studio at her home and walked us through her process, asked us relevant questions (how we met, what is our style/theme, what are we looking for, etc.), if we felt overwhelmed she would make recommendations, etc. It just felt more personable with Vicki compare to other photographers, right away we booked Vicki for our June 2014 wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club. She did our engagement photos, which turned out very beautiful we used a stylist via Vicki recommendation (Julie Jackson) to help us with outfits and my make and hair. On the wedding day Vicki's team - Assistant Allie and Stylist Megan, arrived early and dressed professionally. Overall they photos from our wedding day turned out beautiful and we are so proud of how it turned out. I highly recommend Vicki to any bride, remember not only you are hiring a talented photographer (Vicki) but you are hiring someone that will document a very important part of your life in the most beautiful way possible! Thanks Vicki!
There isn't enough to say about Vicki, she made our wedding day so special and the photos are there to prove it. She and her team worked fantastically together and actually ended up being the ones to keep us on schedule with our day-of itinerary. She caught all the little details and captured some of the best moments we didn't even know happened. Be sure to snag Vicki as soon as you get engaged!
Vicki was one of the best vendors we had at our wedding last year. She has an amazing aesthetic and style that made our weddings pictures one of kind and extraordinarily beautiful. She has a wonderful eye for lighting, positioning, looks, but most of all--she knew how to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera so that our images were natural and full of love. Our wedding planner recommended her to us and we met Vicki at her home office in Fairfax. She showed us wedding photographs she shot and we knew right from the start that she was our pick. Vicki was very helpful throughout the process from engagement photos to the wedding photos. She sent us guides on what to wear and even recommended a stylist (Julie Jackson) for clothes, hair, and makeup. I will definitely recommend Vicki because she is a true professional and by looking at our pictures--I know she loves what she does. She has a passion for photography and we couldn't have been happier with how our photos turned out. Thanks Vicki!
Vicki was one of the first vendors we booked and one of our favorites. We feel very lucky to have found her and snatched her up for our wedding day! Photography was very important to us, and we knew immediately when we met Vicki that her style was exactly what we wanted. She was absolutely amazing throughout the entire wedding process. It is hard to pick my favorites out of the photos she took of our wedding day, because I love them all. During the wedding reception, I remember having the best time of my life and catching Vicki out of the corner of my eye at all the right moments. Not only is Vicki incredibly talented, she was also a great resource throughout the planning process. She went above and beyond, always responding to my questions and even helping me draft and refine the timeline of events. I cannot say enough good things about Vicki and would wholeheartedly recommend her to any bride.
I could not have asked for a better photographer. Not only is she creative and has a great eye, but she helped plan the logistics of my reception, made recommendations and used her background in wedding planning to ensure everything ran smoothly. She is calm, kind and easy to work with. She makes everyone feel comfortable and is so very aware of everything going on. She stuck to our schedule and took every shot that I requested. Her package also included engagement photos and she spent more time than expected. She also arrived early to my wedding to make sure everything was ready. She spends more time than in the contract because she cares so much about her work. She just sent me a sneak peek of our wedding photos and they are incredible. The shots are artsy and so beautiful. You will not regret hiring her!
Vicki is amazing. My cousin recommended me to her, and I'm so so happy we chose her. I knew she would be awesome and had an eye for all things beautiful when during our first meeting, she let me bounce design, color, and floral ideas off of her. She gave some great advice. I really appreciated her attention to detail and service throughout the whole process. The final product spoke for itself. She captured the most beautiful moments on the most important day of our lives. She an extraordinary talent. Completely worth the investment.
Before my husband and I got engaged, I was already a pretty dedicated wedding blog stalker. So, I knew I wanted to hire a great photographer. Because of that, Vicki was the second vendor we booked!! I was and still am so impressed with her work. Her photos are natural, refreshing, soft, and real. She is a true artist. My husband and I love our wedding and engagement photos. And our family members and friends have nothing but great things to say about Vicki and the photos she captured of the day. I love that Vicki really enjoys her work, and is dedicated to her craft. And I have to commend Vicki for dealing with our HUGE families. Our family formals with 30+ people came out perfectly!! I highly, definitely, 100% recommend Vicki to anyone who wants their photo taken ever in their lifetime :)
Vicki photographed our intimate elopement in Frostburg, MD. I contacted her after I fell in love with the timeless and beautiful photos on her blog. Vicki answered all my emails promptly and thoroughly. She created a custom package for our elopement. I don’t know anything about weddings or photographs, so I relied heavily on her expertise. She suggested a timeline and helped me coordinate with our venue and videographer. She recommended a florist, and even offered to pick up the bouquet and boutonniere on her way to Frostburg. When we met her on the day of the ceremony, we immediately knew that we made the right decision. We felt comfortable with her. She was friendly and warm, but also methodical and efficient. Our photos were ready when she said we would be, and we are so happy with how they turned out. The photos are absolutely stunning, and they captured the spirit of the day perfectly. I highly recommend Vicki – she is awesome!!
I found Vicki Grafton Photography just from searching vendors with positive reviews online. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Vicki and her team. I was very concerned about the cost of wedding photography but I have to say that the results that Vicki delivered were priceless! My husband and I had such a fun experience with both the engagement session and the wedding photos. For the engagement Vicki agreed to travel to our alma mater where we met and personalized the shoot making it a very special experience. We received so many compliments on her unique style of photography, it really captured a genuine intimacy and a moment in time that we'll treasure forever, not to mention she made us look amazing. Vicki really put us at ease and was so helpful and responsive in the wedding planning process- she gave us many great ideas and helpful advice with planning, timeline, etc. I was really in love with her use of film photography which added a lot of character to the images, almost like pieces of art that we can look back on to remember our special day. Her images captured the genuine essence of the wedding day and of each person who attended and that's what we loved most about her unique style.
When it's all over, you have your husband, your memories, and your photographs. These are the most important things to be happy with, in my book. I wasn't overly picky with flowers or table decoration, but I was picky with finding our photographer. I wanted natural-looking photographs that captured the day simply and beautifully, and captured who we are as a couple. With Vicki, I got every bit of this and more. I couldn't be happier with how our photographs turned out, and they are a testament to her talent as a photographer. Her photographs are the natural, beautiful captures of our day that I had envisioned. She is worth every penny we spent. She was responsive, organized, professional, and a pleasure to work with. And, not only did she capture our day perfectly, but she helped us get organized well in advance of our wedding by asking some really good questions and helping us work through our timeline and related details. The day of, we just relaxed and had a blast, and she captured every moment we wanted - not a thing was missed. I feel we ended up with better shots than what I've seen of other photographers at the equivalent price. I cannot recommend Vicki Grafton enough. We were very lucky and thankful to have had her for our day, and we are ecstatic over how our photos turned out.
At the top of our wedding list for priorities was an excellent photographer. What a gem we found in Vicki Grafton! I wanted dreamy-stylized photos as my husband wanted more photo-journalistic images and we were so excited when we saw both in her work. From the start, Vicki and her crew were professional, responsive and attentive; giving us a survey about what we wanted, a very detailed timeline, getting important details about shots we liked and information about our venue. Our interview with her was very professional and pricing information was upfront, something that not every photographer is willing to give. She, her second shooter and assistant were so obliging and professional. The timeline she gave us was such an important tool for the planning of our wedding day and they stuck to it. Her style is unobtrusive yet intimate, getting our good sides as well as those of our friends and family and the images left us with such an incredible sense of our wedding day that we'll treasure them forever. Even so far after the wedding, she still keeps in touch, and I love checking in on her blog to see her latest work. She is an investment, but one you won't regret.
My fiance and I started our photography search and we were surprised at some of the quality of the photography for the value but when I found Vicki, I knew right away I loved her photography style and I wanted to book her. Her photos are very simple, clean, and have a cool effect that I can't describe. After we asked a photography friend, he confirmed that Vicki was the right choice for the best quality and value.
Vicki was very responsive and knowledgeable and once we met her for the consultation appt. I knew that I wanted to book her because I appreciate how she was well- organized, professional and attentive to details because I am like that too. When planning Vicki was able to help us by suggesting a wedding timeline and incorporating my chinese tea ceremony she help me finalize my wedding timeline. I am an asian bride and she recommended to me what worked best with the timeline based on my cultural preferences for certain photos.
After taking the engagement shoot with her and seeing our photos especially the ones with our pup, I knew she had great composition and loved the photos. My fiance our pup and I felt very relaxed and comfortable with Vicki at our shoot and had a great time.
For our wedding Vicki was well prepared and had asked us what photos we wanted at the wedding in advance. Unfortunately my wedding was the weekend after Hurricane Sandy and we had a lot of wedding mishaps but Vicki was still flexible with the timeline and despite the weather conditions. My wedding was a bit chaotic because I did everything myself and so I was stressed but she made sure to get all the pictures I wanted and even coordinated with the DJ to call up family members for group pictures because I forgot to tell the DJ that. We finally ended the night with cute pictures of me and the groom playing around with sparklers. Vicki has a great eye and awesome composition in her photography, I was so glad that she was able to capture those wedding moments for me.
My husband and I could not have found a better photographer than Vicki. She did our engagement shoot and our wedding weekend at Rosemont Manor in Berryville, VA. Not only is she professional and great at her job, but she is fun to work with (helps take some anxiety away from a nervous bride and groom!!) She captured our big day perfectly, and we could not be happier with the final product. Definitely look to Vicki for all of your wedding photography needs. :)
Vicki was great to work with. She gave us just enough direction to get some great photos without us looking over posed. She listened to all of my ideas and made sure to get pictures of what I asked for. All of our pictures turned out great! She made a wonderful slideshow for us and all the little gifts/wrapping for the cds were adorable!
