About

gillette portrait arts is the collective creative vision of owner raye gillette-whaley and associate kristie cooper that began in 2004. in february of 2009 - we opened our storefront studio in historic downtown snow hill, maryland. our style is a perfect blend of artistry, creativity and spontaneity. at gillette portrait arts, it's the relationships that we form with our clients that is the icing on the cake of an already amazing job - we have the privilege of documenting once in a lifetime experiences, and we treat each session with the importance and respect that such a responsibility demands - but we also have a great time! what's more fun than chasing a toddler around the dunes at the beach? more intimate than observing the exchanging of vows between husband and wife? more exciting than catching the joy of a teenager in their last year of high school? more filled with joy and anticipation than a woman soon to become a mother? these are huge moments and we are so honored and excited to be a part of it!

Best photographers ever! I worked with Kristie and she is so great. She works so hard to capture all parts of your wedding day. She made it so comfortable to be in front of the camera. Would recommend to anyone!!

Raye rocks! All my nerves were in an uproar.. what to wear... make up questions, posed vs natural... she made us feel like old friends and the rest came naturally after that! We had so much fun at our e-session! Can't wait to hang out again at our big day!

Raye is absolutely amazing. From the first time we met her at our engagement session throughout the whole planning process, everything went as smoothly as possible. She's responsive and even calms anxious brides' nerves. The pictures that she captures throughout the night are beyond gorgeous and something that my husband and I will cherish for years to come. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!!
