My wife and I looked a lot of wedding photographers, and I mean a lot. There were a few that came close, but when we saw Walter's work, we knew we wanted him. The day of the wedding, he totally put us at ease, and captured everything we wanted without putting any pressure on us. In the end, his photos were fantastic, and our wedding photos are the envy of many of our friends.Sent on 03/30/2017

Wally is the real deal. Kind, super smart, and sensitive--he listens well, understands personal needs, and is utterly respectful. It seems like so many photogs lose sight of how personal the process is. That said, one wants both a professional and a confident visionary, and that's Wally, too. He's got a great/unique eye and perspective, thinks creatively throughout a session, but also shows up and takes care of every aspect--direction, equipment, timing, position, variety, exploring all possibilities, efficiency...the whole range, but always with a smile and caring and a relaxed approach. We did a long session with him that involved canoes and water and costume changes and watching the weather, and he never wavered--a fantastic attitude. Cannot recommend highly enough!Sent on 05/04/2017

We were beyond pleased with our wedding photos from Wally McGrady. He mingled so well and was dressed so sharp most people thought he was a guest! This created The ability to snap very candid photographs. My parents were unsure of how the reception might go because we are a very big blended family which can make groups photographs awkward. But Wally was funny and gracious and he was sure to include everyone. He was awesome with the kids and great with my husband's elderly grandparents. Our keepsakes are beautiful. Couldn't have asked for more.Sent on 04/03/2017
