Briana & Phil were so professional and great to work with at our daughter's wedding. Their work told the story of the day and captured those meaningful moments. Thank you, Briana & Phil!Sent on 01/29/2019
The Grays Photography's reply:Thank you for writing such a kind review! One of my favorite photos from the day is when I captured the look on your face when you stepped back to see Abbey all dressed and ready for her wedding day--moments like that are why we keep doing what we do!

Great experience with true professionals
We chose to work with Briana and Phil for our June wedding last year and were beyond happy with the experience! The Grays were professional, personable and always there to answer questions through the process. Neither my husband or I were very comfortable in front of the camera but The Grays made the experience super simple and fun! Not only are they true professionals but they're lovely and a joy to be around. Both our engagement and wedding pictures turned out incredibly well. We couldn't be happier!Sent on 02/11/2019
The Grays Photography's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to tell about your experience with us! We SO enjoyed getting to know you guys and your families, and it was an honor to document your wedding day. Would love to grab a drink the next time your in town ;)

We absolutely love the Grays!
I would highly recommend working with Briana and Phil. They are organized, professional, and immensely talented. We appreciated how hard they worked to understand what was important to us and portray that though their photography. They captured many candid moments, as well as beautiful portraits we are proud to hang in our home. The Grays are wonderful people who put you at ease in front of the camera.Sent on 02/04/2019
The Grays Photography's reply:Bailey - thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful review! We loved getting to know you guys, you're both some of the nicest people we've ever met! Keep in touch!

The BEST Wedding Photographers
Briana and Phil are the absolute best! Adam and I loved working with them for our engagement and wedding photos. They were so friendly and laidback, while also being professional and efficient. They listened to our ideas and put it into practice in the best way. Our photos turned out beautifully and we are so thankful for them! Briana and Phil are truly great people and I highly recommend them for your wedding!!!Sent on 02/05/2019

Danielle Carlson · Married on 05/18/2018
I knew I wanted The Grays to photograph my wedding since I started following their blog. They always take the most amazing pictures. My husband and I loved their attentiveness before, during, and after the wedding. Brianna was incredibly detail oriented and paid close attention to what I wanted for pictures and made sure my good side (big retro part in my hair) was on display. Phil did a great job of keeping everyone smiling and laughing, my husband definitely laughed the most. Even when the driver of our shuttle didn't take us to the right photo spots Brianna and Phil took it in stride and worked with where were dropped off. They captured our wedding day perfectly.Sent on 07/16/2019
The Grays Photography's reply:Danielle! Way to make me cry on a Tuesday afternoon ;) Thank you for taking the time to say such kind words! Really appreciate it. We had a blast with you guys and hope to see you again soon!
Sara · Married on 11/04/2017
We are obsessed with the Grays! Having them document our day was the best decision we made! I feel like picking a photography is the most important decision you make when planning a wedding (besides picking a wedding coordinator) and we could not say enough about the Grays! Our pictures are STUNNING and we got them back so quickly so that was wonderful to be able to relive our wedding day so soon after! :)Sent on 12/02/2017
The Grays Photography's reply:Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind and thoughtful review! We just LOVED working with you guys and being a part of your wedding day! Thanks again for choosing us =)
Allie · Married on 10/21/2017
We used the Grays for our October wedding in Kansas City. Ten days out, the forecast called for rain. The Grays were calm and confident the whole time that no matter what the weather did, everything would be okay. The day of, we changed our schedule due to the rain and the Grays, without any issue, captured every picture with every person and group we wanted. We could not have been happier with our results. And we got awesome umbrella shots :)Sent on 12/28/2017
The Grays Photography's reply:Ah! Thank you so much for taking the time to say something =) You guys also handled the threat of rain (and then the storms) so well and just rolled with it. You guys made the day that much more enjoyable!
David · Married on 09/23/2017
Great couple, easily the best decision we made to capture our special day. Timely, accommodating, patient through all the hectic times that wedding day entails. Very appreciative for all they did - Most importantly, thankful for what came a few weeks later - The quality pictures, the moments captured -- Very appreciative and worth every penny. You won't regret working with Briana & Phil!Sent on 12/27/2017
The Grays Photography's reply:Thank you for such kind words! You & Breanna were just wonderful to work with and it was just a beautiful day overall! It was an honor to be there!
Patrick · Married on 07/29/2017
The Gray's Photography has provided unparalleled service to my wife and I. We had the chance to view some of their amazing work and were drawn to the way they photographed. Briana and Phil are personable, friendly, accommodating, and they never cease to impress us with their quality images. They capture the essence of the day seamlessly, every time. You forget about the camera, have an amazing time, and receive timeless photos quickly. We love their sneak peeks and feel like they're genuinely interested in documenting our experiences. We partnered with them to document our wedding, engagement , family, and even the birth of our son. When we traveled out of state for our wedding, we knew we wanted them to travel with us. We needed someone we could trust to document the day we would relive for years to come; they were just that. They exceeded our expectations once again. They provide so much variety in their shoots. We will use them to document our family for years to come. If you're looking for a wedding photographer that'll add to your experience and capture every moment seamlessly, Briana and Phil Gray will beyond meet your expectations. Best photographers in Kansas City.Sent on 01/01/2018

Working with Briana and Phil was a dream come true. As soon as we met with them for the first meeting, I KNEW we were in good hands! They responded to every text, phone call, and email so quickly and made me feel so at ease. They're efficient, responsive, and obviously talented. Our pictures were the perfect mix of artsy, creative candids plus traditional face forward portraits. I can't speak more highly about Briana and Phil. They truly were the best photographers we could have asked for.Sent on 12/27/2017
The Grays Photography's reply:Jenny (& Drew), THANK YOU! We really appreciate that you took the time to write this and we were honored to document your day!

We are overjoyed with the the work The Grays did for our wedding! Briana & Phil were absolutely amazing in capturing all of the wonderful moments of the day, and our photos are beyond breathtaking! They were so swift and efficient with moving things along timely, especially with us having a large wedding party, yet we never felt rushed. Additionally, they were so much fun to work with, AND we got our photos back so quickly! These two have a true art and passion for what they do, and we are so grateful for how they captured our day!Sent on 04/23/2017
The Grays Photography's reply:Allison (& Chris)--thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for taking the time to say such nice things about your experience with us! What a fun thing to come home from Italy to ;) We just loved getting to know you both and it was just the most beautiful spring day for your wedding--wind and all, haha! Thank you!
Katherine · Married on 02/18/2017
Hiring Briana and Phil was probably the EASIEST decision we made about our wedding. We've used them before for family photos so we knew from prior experience that the quality was definitely there, however that photo session was quick and we were in a big group so we didn't get to experience much one on one time until we selected them as our engagement and wedding photographers. After our engagement pictures, we realized their personalities really clicked with ours and made us feel way more relaxed. My husband is a bit quiet when you first meet him and definitely reluctant to take pictures so it was really helpful to have Phil there to joke with him and get him to warm up a bit. They were very professional throughout the whole process, extremely kind, quick to respond to texts, questions, and emails, and made us both feel relaxed on the wedding day. We LOVE the way our pictures turned out and I can't recommend them both enough!Sent on 03/02/2017
PS: their turn around time is very quick! We received our family pictures (which were in 2015 in April/May) after about 3 weeks and our July engagement pictures in about the same amount of time. We needed to get a few pictures from that session pretty quick so we could send out save-the-dates, and Briana was more than accommodating and sent 15 edited pictures for us to pick from the day after our shoot! Our wedding pictures were received even quicker! We had them all after 10 days!
Sarah · Married on 01/28/2017
This husband and wife team is INCREDIBLE!! They are very professional, know what they are doing, and always consider the people they are photographing. They brought out our personalities in our engagement shoot even though we had only met once before the shoot! The photos are absolutely gorgeous!!Sent on 10/31/2016
UPDATE: Still incredible! We got married 3 weeks ago and they were wonderful and so helpful the whole day! They were very quick with getting our pictures to us (plus side of off-season weddings!) and they are just to die for! I couldn't imagine any better photographers to work with and look forward to working with them in the future!
The Grays Photography's reply:Aww, thank you so much for the kind words Sarah! You made our day!
Emily · Married on 10/01/2016
If I could give these guys 100 stars, I would. So professional, so friendly, so creative and flexible! They were more than willing to tailor our package since we had already gotten our engagement photos done with someone else (we live in LA, wedding was in Lawrence KS). We got to meet in person a few months before the wedding, and they provided some drinks/snacks, which made for a fun, relaxed atmosphere. On our wedding day, they arrived right on time and really did a great job of being present for all those great little moments but not in the way. We made a last-minute change in location for the wedding party photos because we didn't have enough transportation for everyone, and they totally made it work. For the creative photos, Briana did an amazing job of helping us achieve those natural poses without looking uncomfortable. Phil was super sweet as well, and kept the mood light and fun. Even though the day was hectic, Grays Photography never made us feel rushed. The turnaround time was super quick as well. We were not in any hurry, but I was so surprised and excited to know that our photos were ready about 3 and a half weeks later! Some of my married friends have said it took their photographers months to send the final pictures. And there were several hundred to look through, so plenty of great material to choose from for framing, Facebook, thank you cards, and sending to relatives, etc. I highly recommend Briana and Phil of Grays Photography. Not only were they great to work with, they seem to be such wonderful, loving people!Sent on 12/27/2016

CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS. Briana and Phil are simply wonderful to work with. First of all, they are super talented and can make anyone look good (believe me it took hard work with my finance and I ;)), second of all - they care. They are authentic and genuine and care about capturing one of the most beautiful days of your life. We recently took engagement pictures with us, and they got to know us before hand and made us very comfortable throughout the shoot. I have only seen the sneak peaks so far - and I am so PUMPED for the rest. Can't wait for them to capture our wedding day. We love you Grays Photography and will be recommending you to everyone :)Sent on 04/27/2016
The Grays Photography's reply:Awe, thanks guys! Can't wait to share them all and SO excited for your wedding day =)

Hiring Briana and Phil Gray to photograph our wedding is the most important and most rewarding decision we made. When we first interviewed them through Skype we knew they were going to do a great job, but they really did exceed all of our expectations. They kept in contact with us throughout the year of wedding planning and helped us talk through a detailed timeline of the wedding day--which was a life saver in the end. They also helped us think of things to photograph or include on our wedding that I never would have thought about beforehand. When we met them for the engagement shoot it was an absolute blast. They are a colorful, authentic, fun, creative couple that we sincerely enjoyed spending time with. Phil and Briana were key players on our wedding day. They kept us on track and on time to do all of the things we wanted to do. They took my wedding party to interesting and unique places--they truly have an eye for color and composition. They took many candid photographs of important family and friends, which is really important to us. Phil and Briana really went the extra mile--they even took us in their own car for an special shot with the Kansas City skyline in the background during golden hour and got us back to our reception in 15 minutes! They were very timely in delivering our photos back to us. They worked well together, making everything seamless and easy. They truly listened to the kinds of things we wanted and captured exceptional photographs. I cannot describe with words how satisfied I am with the photos, and highly recommend the Grays to anyone!Sent on 07/07/2016
The Grays Photography's reply:Joel & Nina-- Wow!!! We are blown away and humbled by such kind and thoughtful words. Thank you SO much for taking the time to write such a nice and very detailed review, you truly made our day. We were honored to photograph your wedding and to be trusted to showcase all your beautiful details--most that were designed and/or made by you guys! Thank you for being so warm and welcoming to us and we hope you look back on your photos time and time again for the rest of your lives together!

Briana and Phil did an AMAZING job with our engagement pictures and wedding day photography. Not only were we impressed with the final results but their professionalism and guidance on the wedding day helped make the day go smoothly and perfectly. From candid shots to formal family portraits and, of course, their beautiful creative work, The Grays delivered beautiful pictures that capture every element of our special day. They were even able to work a minor miracle by getting our huge family organized into wonderful group pictures we will treasure forever! Briana and Phil have the perfect demeanor to work with a bridal party. They give excellent, clear direction while still allowing everyone to be relaxed and have fun. Our pictures are truly gorgeous - we are so thankful to have them to look back on as they perfectly document our wedding day. From start to finish, our experience with The Grays was wonderful and we highly recommend them - they will be our photographer of choice for years to come!Sent on 05/23/2016
The Grays Photography's reply:Thank you Megan and Thad for the kind words! We loved getting to work with you two over the last year. We are very blessed to have such awesome clients such as you two!

We absolutely loved the Grays. From the time we first met with them, to our engagement photos, and the day of our wedding - they were great every step of the way. We were so glad we chose to do engagement photos with them -- we loved their photos so much that we knew we'd be comfortable and end up with great photos for our wedding :). They really listened to everything we asked for (specific things to photograph and moments to capture), they made sure we rallied all of our family to get in the photos they were needed in, and they made us feel very comfortable in every scenario. I would definitely recommend them!Sent on 01/10/2016

Briana and Phil are extremely sweet and personable, but also very experienced and talented professionals. They were easy and fun to work with for our daughter's engagement shoot and during the prewedding meeting, but simply blended into the wedding and reception, taking gorgeous photos while we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the celebrations without distractions. The results were amazing! Just as promised, Briana and Phil simultaneously captured our daughter's wedding from 2 different perspectives, assuring we did not miss great photos of any special moments or loved ones. A prewedding list of "not to be missed" moments and people, as well as the list of family photos desired, was created at Briana and Phil's suggestion and allowed all to run smoothly and the atmosphere to remain relaxed during that special day without any worries on our part. While Briana and Phil had many excellent and helpful suggestions, they remained flexible and open to our suggestions, too. Fantastic combination! The Grays, and the resulting photos, far exceeded our hopes and expectations in every way! We are very grateful!Sent on 08/04/2015

We knew of The Gray's before meeting with them and that they had a fantastic reputation and we were impressed by their work. We immediately knew we wanted to hire them after our first meeting. Phil and Briana are wonderful and super friendly people. They don't treat you as a job, but as a couple they genuinely care about. They are easy and fun to work with and very professional. We knew we were in great hands and didn't have any worries about our photos. We really liked having a male and female photographer to take getting ready photos with both sides of the bridal party. They were wonderful in organizing large family photos and working with young kids. We love the wonderful moments they captured in our beautiful images. They were very quick to get our wedding and engagement photos to us afterwards. We would strongly recommend them to any couple!Sent on 07/30/2015

Choosing our photographers was the most important decision for us. We couldn't have made a better selection!! The Grays really captured all the perfect moments both formally and informally. They have a great eye and know how to take beautiful photos. Not only were our photos perfect, they were great to work with. They were super organized and created our entire timeline for the day. They were very responsive to my emails and we only had to meet with them once closer to the wedding. They were spot on with the timing and were adaptable and professional when things had to change throughout the day. Our wedding party was a little crazy and I couldn't imagine how hard that must have been to take charge of us but they did a fabulous job!! The pricing was great considering they spent 10 hours with us and what the photo package provided. You spend all day with your photographers so it is an important decision. They were super fun and sweet...they even gave us a gift card for ice cream and provided us with wine and beer and cupcakes when we met with them!!! (it's the little things :-) ) You would be making a mistake if you didn't use The Grays Photography!!!Sent on 07/31/2015
Katie · Married on 05/16/2015
The Grays were a perfect choice for our wedding photos. They really made the whole experience special from first meeting them at their studio. They asked my husband and I about ourselves to start to get our story, and then we talked about what we pictured for our engagement and wedding photos. We immediately felt so comfortable with them, and knew they would be an excellent choice. We were not disappointed! The engagement shoot was an absolute blast, where we shot both outdoorsy and urban photos. It was a great way for my husband and I to get used to the photographers and feel more comfortable come wedding day. After we got our amazing engagement photos, we knew the wedding photos would be just as wonderful. Again, we were not disappointed! We have received numerous compliments on our wedding photos and will cherish them forever! Thanks, Briana and Phil! You truly made our day so special :)Sent on 08/01/2015

Where do I even begin? From the first meeting we had with Phil & Briana, I knew they were something special & that they had to be the ones to document our big day. Throughout the whole planning process, Phil & Briana have been nothing short of wonderful! We had so much fun with them during our engagement shoot & they have a way of making you feel like you've known them for years. Now onto the wedding day... Our wedding day ran so smoothly & a lot of that credit goes to Phil & Briana. They were very efficient in getting photos taken without ever making us feel rushed. Keep in mind, you will be spending basically your whole wedding day with your photographer & there is no one else I would have rather done that with than Phil & Briana. They are the perfect team & I think they really do have an advantage because they are married. They are able to communicate what they want the other to do sometimes without even saying anything. Our family & wedding party loved them too! We got so many compliments that day on our photographer. They just have a way of making everyone feel relaxed & at ease (which isn't always easy when the camera is out). They captured our day so perfectly & made my husband & I look like we knew what we were doing. Their style is the perfect mixture of artistic photos mixed with traditional poses that family members always want. I was (and still am) completely blown away by how amazing our wedding pictures are. The Gray's Photography is such an easy recommendation to make because they are so good at what they do! They are very well known in the KC wedding industry & now I know exactly why! Thanks Phil & Briana for providing us with gorgeous pictures & memories that will last a lifetime!Sent on 05/24/2015
