My son got married last weekend and he captured amazing beautiful pictures of the bride and groom, scenery, guests and all the fun that was had that day. Thank you for capturing memories for a lifetime!! More...

Graddy Photography does all of the photography for my construction company and website. Justin also took our youngest daughters wedding photos and has also done our dogs photos. Everything always turns out great. Highly recommended! More...

We love Graddy photography! We used them for our wedding photos in 2013 and they turned out amazing. We have been return customers since for maternity, newborn and family pictures (most recently this spring for our baby’s one year photos). We are always so happy with our photos and Chrissy and Justin are great to work with. We can’t recommend them enough and look forward to working with them again. More...

Justin is our son in law and we are lucky because Graddy Photography has done our family photos for many years and also took our youngest daughters wedding photos. They also have done photos of our dogs. Everything always turns out great. Highly recommended! More...

We highly recommend Graddy Professional photography -- Top quality, creative yet practical approach has helped our business shine. Both Chrissy and Justin are very professional and top notch in their field and simply good people to work with for your photography needs. Our business has hired them multiple times over the past few years and we couldn't be more pleased! Tracy Lindstrom, owner Northern Lights Resort & Outfitting on Lake Kabetogama More...

Graddy Photography did an amazing job capturing my engagement proposal. Chrissy and Justin were both very easy to communicate with, and were extremely professional in my dealings with them leading up to the big moment. I couldn't be happier with how the end product turned out, Justin did an amazing job! I would highly recommend Graddy Photography!! More...

We were blessed to have Graddy photography do our wedding August 4th, 2018 at Superior Shores in Two Harbors. They did an amazing job even though it rained all day! Our pictures turned out better than I could’ve ever imagined and we love very single one! They are so talented and we highly recommend choosing them! Thanks again Graddy Photgraphy! More...

If anyone could endorse Graddy Photography it would be me. I met this dynamic duo almost 10 years ago. Their professionalism, photographic skills, creativity, generosity, determination and friendliness blew me away from the start. I began recommending them to my wedding clients immediately resulting in dozens of very happy brides, grooms and their parents. Now I work for myself and they are always at the top of my list when I need someone to photograph, videotape or market a wonderful (or demanding) client. Their numerous awards in the industry speak for themselves, but from someone who knows them personally and professionally, I can tell you they are the best of the best. More...

Justin is one of the most talented photographers I know. Chrissy and him make a wonderful team and communicate with the client and each other very well. Justin doesn't take the cliche wedding pictures you see every photographer taking. He has a great eye and edits his photos perfectly! Although Graddy Photography is pretty expensive, wedding photos are something that you don't want to skimp on. I highly (10/10) recommend. More...

STUNNING!!!! We couldn't be happier with how Justin was able to capture our wedding day. My husband and I took a risk in booking Graddy Photography, as we booked solely based on online reviews and let me tell you, that was one of the best risks aside from getting married we couldn't be happier we took. We met Justin prior to our wedding to take our engagement pictures, then we knew he was the right artist for the job! In addition to our images and experience, Chrissy has been incredible with how her and Justin work as a team, getting all of our questions answered in a very quick, professional matter. Justin has a special, rare skill being able to capture the moments, by telling a story through the images he captures. Justin was professional, calm, fun and knew how to adapt while putting the bride and groom as ease. My husband and I will definably be returning customers. Thank you Justin and Chrissy! More...

Justin & Chrissy did a fantastic job taking our engagements pictures, they were very flexible with requests that we made and gave us many options when it came to places we wanted the pictures taken, or certain poses we had in mind. The best photographer I could ask for! More...

My husband and I worked with Graddy Photography for our September 26, 2015 wedding. I had previously had the pleasure of working with Justin and Chrissy for my senior pictures many years back and knew that I ABSOLUTELY HAD to use them again when I got married. They were the only vendor I was set on having and it was for good reason. They were the first vendor we booked even though we didn't have a venue yet, we just couldn't risk not having them capture our day. I would have planned my whole wedding around them if I had to- Justin is that incredible. Simply put they are an amazing team and their work is incredible. Chrissy is always quick to respond to questions and gives so many options to fit your budget. She makes the whole process easy. Justin is so talented and deserves every amount of recognition he gets. He seemlessly blended in with everyone at the wedding and helped keep everything on schedule the whole day. He has an amazing eye for capturing truly unique and beautiful photos and we are so lucky to have worked with him. If there is one thing you have to have for your wedding it's Justin and Chrissy!

We were excited that we were able to book Graddy Photography for our March 2015 wedding, and the pictures turned out even more stunning than we had imagined. Justin and Chrissy were both very easy to work with throughout the process. On the day of the wedding, Justin knew the venue well and was incredibly efficient. He managed to capture every detail and emotion of the day. We are so thrilled to have such beautiful memories of our wedding day and we highly recommend Graddy Photography! More...

Justin was very efficient in his work. He had a good balance between directing us in positions, poses etc, but also let us be ourselves. At times, we forgot he was there. We are impressed and would recommend him to anyone who can afford it. We know the price we paid was on the higher end, but worth it and in years to come, it will be priceless! More...

We are amazed at how many details and great candid shots Justin captured! Everything turned out better then we could have imagined! The photos perfectly retell your wedding day story!

Chrissy and Justin truly care about every client they meet and have the opportunity to work with! They are THE BEST wedding vendor we had the chance to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process! Chrissy responds to all questions as soon as she can and helps guide the timeline of the whole wedding day perfectly and with Justin's amazing talents behind the camera we never once needed to question the quality of his work - we just knew everything would turn out amazing! :) If you are looking for a photographer to capture the best wedding photos I highly reccomend choosing Graddy Photography - truly happy we choose them!

Absolutely outstanding, that's the best way to describe Graddy Photography! We had the most amazing experience using them for our wedding. Both Justin and Chrissy could not be nicer, they are quick to respond and very professional. Our pictures from our engagement shoot and wedding are gorgeous, Justin truly captured memories and moments that we will cherish for a lifetime. My husband and I both agree that this was the best investment we made for our wedding, we were thrilled with our results and will recommend them to anyone getting married! More...

We are SO happy we went with Graddy Photography for our wedding! We knew we wanted to invest in a great photographer for our wedding, and we are so thankful we did! From the very beginning Chrissy was prompt in replying to emails, and gave us great advice about timelines and other questions along the way. The photos Justin took on our wedding day turned out even better than we imagined- we were absolutely blown away! He is so good at what he does that we hardly knew he was there, yet looking at our photos he captured every single moment of our day. We are so thankful to have such breathtaking photos to look back on to remember the best day of our lives. I recommend Graddy Photography to anyone and everyone!! They truly are the best! More...

Justin and Chrissy were amazing to work with! Chrissy was prompt with returning emails from our first inquiry to our final wedding pictures. She took the time to explain the benefits and cost breakdown of their wedding packages, along setting up the wedding day schedule. Justin was an awesome photographer! He braved negative 30 degree weather to do outside engagement pictures and 90 degrees for the wedding ~ and all the pictures turned out amazing! Additionally, Justin took great pictures during our wedding and reception without getting in the way or disturbing the festivities! Overall, they were great to work with and we highly recommend them!

Justin and Chrissy do a phenomenal job, and was SO worth the investment. Not only are the photos beyond incredible, but they do an amazing job throughout your whole wedding planning process. That was very important to me, as with so many vendor details to keep track of, they were so organized and made the pre-planning work so simple. They were excited for us and truly invested in us as a couple. We didn't just feel like one of many weddings they were shooting.

It was not only fun to work with them, but they are professional and passionate about what they do. Chrissy really helps set up the details and gives their professional advice to make the days photos run smoothly so you can just enjoy the day.

The day of the wedding was perfect. He knows exactly what shots to take, has unique and different ideas, and is efficient so you don't feel like your day is dominated with taking photos all day. I was so thrilled with all he was able to capture..everything from the emotional moments, to the intimate family moments, to the small details of the wedding decor...he captured it all perfectly.

Thank you Justin & Chrissy for photographing our day! You captured the moments perfectly...and we will love looking at these photos and re-living the day for years to come!!

When planning one of the most important days of my life I found it so very important to pick a photographer that would not only enhance the experience, but truly understand how important it would be to create timeless photos that we could treasure for the rest of our lives. Needless to say Graddy has gone above and beyond this! Justin somehow made us unbelievable comfortable it was like being photographed by a friend and his work is astounding. Chrissy has also been amazing, in a world of constant movement and deadlines she made the planning process so very easy! We never really worked in person, but Chrissy helped me with picking a package, creating a timeline for the day, and choosing a videographer. We picked Graddy for many reasons, but one is that they treat their customers well and value your time and wishes. There are no words to describe the beauty of the photos Justin took the day of the wedding. Our wedding party had decided to stop at a lake in-between the ceremony and reception for photos and Justin was such a calming presence, yet managed to direct everyone in a way that seemed effortless and produced amazing group shoots. The other thing I was looking for in a wedding photographer was an ability to capture candid moments throughout the day. Justin listened to everything that my husband and I said and was able to produce wedding photos that have all the personality of us as a couple. We are so very grateful that we chose Graddy and you will be too if you choose to work with this amazing duo! We've truly been so very happy with their work and I know my husband and I look forward to using Graddy for all our photography needs in the future! More...

AMAZING photos. Once we had our church and venue locked in for the date we wanted, along with our day-of coordinator, Graddy Photography was the first vendor we booked. We splurged on them and they were beyond worth it. We LOVE our pictures and are so glad we hired them. Justin was great and made us feel so comfortable the whole time. Really one of the best vendors we hired. More...

We could not be happier with our decision to work with Graddy Photography for our wedding (May 2014). When we started looking around online for photographers, we came across Justin’s work and immediately knew he was who we wanted to photograph our wedding. We were fortunate that he still had availability for a date that aligned with our venue. Chrissy was fantastic at answering all of our questions, always very quick to reply, and provided us with valuable insight into the timings of the day itself (we did not have a wedding coordinator to advise us of this). The engagement photos gave us an opportunity to meet Justin and get used to being photographed. He was very easy-going, yet professional, and made us feel instantly comfortable. Photos were the most important thing to me and I had confidence in Justin's abilities based on past photos, and he did not disappoint. On the day of, he captured everything we could have hoped for and more, and are thrilled with our photos! Personally, Justin and Chrissy were a pleasure to work with and were a very special part of our day. More...

Our entire family was so pleased and amazed by our gorgeous wedding photos! Many people said they had never seen photos that beautiful. We keep getting the comment “these should be in a magazine”. We spent a long time looking before choosing a photographer and we just felt Graddy Photography really surpassed all the others. Even though we could have chosen less expensive photographers, our photos were worth every penny. Now that the wedding is over, we only have our photos and video to help us remember our beautiful day!
Chrissy Graddy (who takes care of the business end) was one of the best people we worked with throughout the entire wedding process. We always got a prompt response from her on any questions that came up. She helped us with the timeline and Justin can get a lot of different shots very quickly. Their pricing was very clear and there were no unexpected costs at the conclusion of the wedding.
Justin Graddy was so professional and easy to work with. One of the most amazing things was that we hardly saw Justin throughout the day, yet he was able to capture every single detail of our wedding – many of which we never saw ourselves. Most of us didn’t even see him at all during, the wedding – we were just hoping he was there somewhere! His pictures of the dessert table were especially good, because my Mom doesn’t even like dessert and said the pictures made her tempted to try them! He is really good at capturing emotional moments during the wedding and seemed like he was always in the right place at the right time to get the perfect shot. He is willing to go to great lengths to get great shots too, including being perched on his toes on the edge of a very tall stadium wall! We absolutely loved working with Graddy Photography and would recommend them to anyone!

The very first thing we booked after getting engaged was our photographer - Graddy. I knew right away that was who I wanted. I had seen their work before and just fell in love with their talent and vision. From the first interaction, to wrapping everything up at the end, their kindness, confidence, talent, and easy-going attitude were more than we could've asked for from a photographer. On our wedding day, Justin worked quickly, but we were never rushed. He captured moments that I didn't even realize were happening at the time. He worked so well with our group - we had so many laughs and I'm so glad they were captured in our photos. And Chrissy was so easy to work with in setting everything up. She helped us figure out our timeline and gave great advice - this was definitely a big help as the big day was approaching.
They're the total package. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out - the photos themselves, and the customer service we received. We had a perfect wedding day, and I'm so grateful that it was also captured so perfectly.

We could not be more excited to recommend Graddy Photography. They are just amazing and SO EASY TO WORK WITH. We worked with Justin for the photos and Chrissy behind the scenes with the more logistical aspects.

Somehow Justin managed to capture every moment of our wedding day in the most beautiful way, really allowing the emotions to shine through. He is calm, cool, and collected - you will barely even know that he is there. But don't let that fool you, the photos will speak for themselves. Chrissy was on top of all of the logistical things in the most delightful way. She is super flexible and understanding.

Our photos and experience working with Graddy was more amazing than we could have imagined :) The investment is totally worth it, and if in fact the photography is where you choose to do that, you will not at all be disappointed.

We were very fortunate to sign on with Graddy Photography to do our Engagement and wedding pictures. Justin was very professional and found amazing backdrops for all our photos. We were extremely happy with him choosing Northfield as our location for our engagement pictures. We would not have considered that location for we were looking at more downtown Minneapolis or Minnehaha falls. His comment was "You see those backdrops all the time". If you want something different, Northfield has a lot great shooting locations! Great advise. The wedding photo's turned out amazing. We are so happy with the end results. Thank you Graddy. We will definitely recommend you! More...

We were looking for a creative photographer, and Justin provided even more than we expected. We felt as if we could enjoy our entire day while Justin directed and lead the bridal party without adding any undue stress, creating photographs that mean so much to us. We have been nothing but impressed from the engagement photos to the wedding with Graddy Photography's ability to capture meaningful moments in a creative and classy manner. Thanks to you we'll always remember what fun we had and how blessed we are. Thanks for being there and for all of your hard work! More...

From the start Graddy Photography was responsive and helpful in answering all my questions. We felt lucky to get them booked since we were planning with a shorter lead time. On the day of the wedding, Justin worked quickly and got many amazing shots. Within 48 hours after the wedding we already had a sneak peek. I couldn't believe how beautiful the photos were and how quickly we got to view them. Our full gallery of photos was available soon after and our album was turned around quickly as well. Service has been exceptional and people can't stop talking about how amazing our pictures are. Both Justin and Chrissy are wonderful to work with! More...

Justin and Chrissy are amazing!! They did our October wedding at the Carlson Rotunda and did an amazing job. They are both so professional and flexible that they made the process from beginning to start very smooth and stress free. They replied almost immediately to any question and was willing to do whatever we needed to feel comfortable. We really enjoyed having Justin because he moved to quickly and was able to get all the family shots in such a short time span.

My husband and I are so happy that we went with Graddy Photography for our wedding. Our experience with Justin and Chrissy was truly amazing!

Justin carried himself as such a professional. There were times we didn't even know he was there, but he captured every special moment. Chrissy was so great to work with. She kept us informed and answered all of our questions.

The first thing we did when we got back from our honeymoon (literally we were still sitting on the airplane) was check out our sneak peek photos. We were absolutely blown away! To our delight the gallery of all of our photos was just as amazing. The love and emotion that Justin was able to capture is outstanding. The day seemed to go by so fast and it is so nice to look back and relive our wedding day all over!

We would absolutely recommend using Graddy Photography, you will not be disappointed!

Graddy Photography was, without a doubt, the best vendor at our wedding. Since my husband and I dated for more than 7 years and were engaged for another 13 months, we had plenty of time to thoroughly research our choice of photographer! While diligently comparing all of the prominent photographers in the Minneapolis area, Graddy Photography kept rising to the top. We were thrilled when we booked them and our excitement continued to increase as we followed their amazing work throughout our engagement year.
Chrissy went above and beyond our expectations with her prompt and detailed responses. She helped us customize a photography package to fit our wedding day schedule of events. We are SO very glad we ultimately decided to book two photographers/shooters from Graddy (both Justin and Chrissy took photos). Not only was it awesome to have two angles and two cameras shooting at all times, but Chrissy felt like a long-time friend, stepping up to the plate helping with logistics, on-the-fly decision making and answering various wedding-day questions. I specifically remember her by my side, calming me, the moment before the “first look.”
Justin was a true professional throughout the entire process. He impressed us during our engagement session with how personable he is and how he took time to help us narrow down our list of vendors we had yet to book. On our wedding day, we felt so confident that we were getting the very best pictures and that he was capturing all the special moments. He is amazingly discreet and we were surprised to discover how many moments he captured that day. To top it off, when our caterer ran into timing issues prior to the first dance, Justin stepped in and calmly reassured us that he would stay longer in order to capture the first dances as we had originally discussed. Incredible.

I loved Graddy Photography! Justin did an amazing job and I'm so excited about our pictures! They are gorgeous! He was patient and fun with my lively bridal party and extremely professional when I stained my dress purple (AHHH!). He was so kind and let us take some pictures of the bridesmaids by themselves so I felt like something was being accomplished while I was busy trying not to hyperventilate about my dress! All my guests was talking about how professional he was and how we hardly knew he was there - he wasn't intrusive or in anybody's way ever, yet he managed to get shots of everything important it seems! Also, Chrissy was so kind, honest, and helpful through all her emailing and advice! My husband and I are so happy with our choice! More...

e were absolutely blown away by the stunning photos Justin got of our wedding: everything from the 'getting ready' photos to random special moments throughout the day were amazing. The ceremony. The first dance. All of the pictures are just amazing. He truly captured everything we were hoping to remember of the day. The day goes by so quickly that making sure to capture all of those moments was especially important to us and we are so happy with the end result. I have received so many emails and phone calls from people I haven't spoken to in a long time just to say how wonderful the photos are. I can't think of enough good things to say about the skill that Justin has and about how relaxed he made the entire day feel. As two people who were extremely nervous on the day of, that calming effect was especially appreciated by both Travis and myself. Chrissy was fabulous as well - she was so detail-oriented and quick to respond to any question either of us could have asked of her. She had a great plan and worked seamlessly with my wedding planner and myself. She always made us feel as though answering questions about our pictures on our wedding day were the most important thing she was doing, even though I'm sure she had 100 other similar emails from other brides to answer in the same afternoon. She was great to work with. I would recommend Graddy Photography to anyone looking to get truly outstanding photos for their special day and anyone who wants to work with two truly talented professionals. More...

We looked at tons of photography portfolios before we found Graddy. Absolutely no one was even close to comparing to their talent. They were a blast to shoot with as well. They are very calming and can give a lot of direction which was super helpful for my husband and I as we didn't know how to pose. We upgraded to using 2 photographers and got Justin's wife as well. She is such a sweetheart and takes wonderful pictures as well. Their communication was always super fast and helpful. We LOVE our pictures. Some of the comments we keep hearing from family, friends and coworkers is how our photos "look like they could be in a magazine" and how they are "the best wedding photos" they've ever seen. Graddy truly is the best wedding photography in Minnesota and they deserve all the awards they win!!! More...

Incredible, absolutely incredible. Justin & Chrissy are the warmest, kindest, most professional people you will ever meet. If you take the time to look at their website and blog, their work speaks for itself. They don't take pictures, they capture moments and turn them into art; I've truly never seen anything like it. Booking them for our wedding (well in advance!) was one of our best decisions. Because of them, we will be able to have moments from that day with us for forever. Thank you guys for your flawless work and for your kind, easy going nature...you were a huge part of our perfect day. More...

I liked our pictures, but there are some things that could be improved. After seeing the pictures, I realized I didn't have a formal picture with just my mom. I also wish more of the details were captured that I had spent so much time deciding on or making (i.e. invitation, purse, gift table card holder, guest book, don't drink and drive sign at the bar), and that things and people could have been aligned better (i.e. jewelry, people in the formal pictures). We also had extra time during the day, which we would have been open to suggestions for more pictures in other locations. More...

My husband and I cannot express enough how much we love our wedding photos!
I met Justin almost 2 years ago while I was a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding. Before I was even engaged I knew that I wanted to have Justin take my wedding photographs.
I'm never the one to feel at ease in front of the camera and neither is my husband. Justin and Chris made us both feel so comfortable and natural with each other. The pictures he took show all of our real emotions. The day of my wedding I felt like I was just hanging out with my husband and my closest friends.
One of the biggest things that struck me was how Justin and Chris got the most beautiful pictures and we hardly remember seeing them that night after the formal pictures. They were so professional; and at the same time we honestly felt like we knew them for a long time.
We have gotten so many compliments on our pictures and can't stop looking at them! If you want professionalism and the most beautiful pictures, you won't go anywhere else!

Justin and Chrissy have been a wonderful part of our wedding. They are so helpful and easy to work with. Chrissy helped me with the timeline and other details I hadn't thought of that made the wedding day go so smoothly. Justin is incredibly professional, relaxed, and very talented. My husband and I felt natural the whole time, which is saying something because he hates pictures! I am so glad we spent the extra money on the photographer because the day of went so smoothly and the final product is incredible! I've been to a wedding where the photographer provided no direction and everyone felt confused and stressed. I've been to other weddings where the photographer spends 15 minutes organized and placing each person in the exact position where they are supposed to stand to capture two pictures, which is such an awkward and forced experience. I've been to other weddings where a beginning photographer misses significant moments and photo opportunities because they didn't realize it was important. Justin captures the important, subtle, and unforgettable moments of life. More...

We were fortunate enough to be able to work with Justin and Chrissy on for our May 2013 wedding and could not have been happier! Photography was really important to my husband and me, so after doing extensive research, Graddy was the first vendor we booked a year-and-a-half before our wedding. Anytime after that we had any questions, a response was received the same day an email was sent. Chrissy did a great job of staying in touch with us and reaching out to see if we needed anything, as well.

Working with Justin for our engagement pictures was just a preview of how smoothly our wedding day would go. He was so professional and fun and knew exactly what he was doing. And when my husband and I looked at our gallery all we kept saying was "Wow, wow, WOW!" We are absolutely thrilled with each and every image and special moment Justin was able to capture.

We are so thankful that we were able to work with Graddy; Justin and Chrissy are both amazing at what they do! It was so wonderful to be able to enjoy our day and not to worry for a second wondering if we were getting good shots. We knew we were in good hands!

He brought out the best of the day - from the emotion to the details of the decor - the end product was truly magical! We'd recommend Graddy Photography to all future brides and grooms!

Graddy Photography did an exceptional job at capturing our wedding just how we imagined it. Chrissy was so thorough in her communications throughout the process and Justin was was so flexible to help us get the photos taken with our busy lives. Our venue was Mill City Museum and offered some amazing backdrops and unique possibilities for stunning photos. We asked Justin to capture the textures and overall essence of the venue since that was the reason we chose Mill City. He did such a great job and exceeded our expectations at every level. We would highly recommend using Graddy Photography for your wedding and any other major life moments that you want to creatively capture with professional photography. Thumbs up from us!

Justin and Chrissy are great to work with, very flexible and quick to respond. I knew right away when I got engaged I wanted to book with Graddy Photography. I love the way the pictures turned out, I looked at other photographer's photos but nothing compared to Graddy. I would highly recommend going to them. Everything turned out GREAT! More...

We absolutely loved working with Graddy photography and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! Justin and Chrissy were very polite and professional to work with, they were very responsive to questions and made us feel at ease. We could not be happier with how our engagement photos and wedding photos turned out. Justin truly captured all of the joy and emotion of our wedding, thanks again for helping to preserve the memories from our big day! More...

Love love LOVE Graddy Photography!!! Loved working with Justin and Chrissy, and LOVE their creative eye to capture the most magical moments. I cried the first time I looked at their website, and I cried when I saw my own wedding photos come back after over a year of planning our beautiful day. They really do have a unique talent and their photos are just breathtaking. I will forever recommend them to everyone I know!! Amy and Joe V More...

After a lot of research to find "the perfect photographer" for our wedding, we found them! Graddy Photography!

Justin and Chrissy not only run and amazing business-but connect with their clients on a personal level outside of just taking your pictures!

When you think of a wedding photographer you have to think of it as an investment...although expensive, worth every penny!

Our pictures are something that we are going to remember for the rest of our lives and couldnt be happier that we picked Justin and Chrissy--because they really captured moments of our day that we will remember forever!

Thank you so much! We will definetely be back in the future for our photograph needs!

Justin was a blast! His work is outstanding. Chrissy did an amazing job of helping define the timeline and related services. He captured many moments I didn't realize as he is so good you forget he is there during the get ready process. We had a tight timeline moving between the Mansion--Church--Mansion...he didn't miss a beat! Thanks Justin and Chrissy! More...

Graddy Photography was an excellent choice for us for our November 2012 wedding. I looked through many photography websites, and theirs was the first one that brought a tear to my eye. I requested information on their site at 10:30pm on a Friday night, and woke up the next morning to an email from Chrissy! Their responsiveness and customer service was amazing and Chrissy put together an excellent timeline for the day. Any time I would email or have a question, she would get back to us within the day. It is such a stressful time for brides and Chrissy and Justin really took all the worry out. Then on the wedding day, Justin put us all at ease and we had total confidence in the pictures he was taking and his vision. Looking through many of the pictures we often thought "where was he standing How did he get that " because he just knew what to look for and capture special moments. The pictures turned out fabulous, not only the "fun" and creative shots that you see on the website, but the formal pictures that my grandparents will want turned out amazing as well. I would highly recommend Graddy Photography, and they really reduced the stress of an anxious and stressed out bride! More...

Graddy did a great job at our wedding. We needed someone who knew what they were doing with such a large bridal party. Justin did a great job sticking to the pictures we wanted to get in a short amount of time. Our engagement pictures and wedding pictures are beautiful and I cannot thank the Graddy family enough for the everlasting memories we have. More...

I had high expectations for Graddy Photography, and to my surprise they surpassed them. It truly is the case that while you spend tons of time planning for all the details of your wedding, it's the photography that captures these moments and helps to make them lasting reminders of this major ceremonial day. Their communication leading up to the event was the perfect combination of professional, yet friendly and accommodating. Also, on the day of Justin blended seamlessly into events of the day, and managed to capture so many tender and beautiful moments. I was truly shocked to see how magazine-like the photos turned out. My husband and I are thrilled--and so is my hard-to-impress, amateur-photographer mother! I definitely recommend them. More...

We are so pleased we chose Graddy Photography to shoot our Wedding. From the immediate response time during the planning process to the efficiency on the wedding day and finally the results and beauty of the photos taken, Graddy is definitely deserving of a 5 star service rating.

My husband is not a fan of having his picture taken and immediately upon meeting Justin, I knew his laid-back style would be a fit with my husband's desires. On the day of, we received countless compliments on the efficiency and ease of working with the Graddy team.

I can be a bit anxious (especially when planning my own wedding) so I was looking for a photographer with attention to details and a quick response time. Chrissy blew me away with her timing and well thought out, detailed responses. We exchanged over 6o emails throughout the planning process and not once did I wait over 24 hours for a response. Thanks Chrissy!

Overall, you can't go wrong with Graddy for your wedding photographer. They might be more expensive than the average Photographer. But if you are looking for average pics, Graddy is not your photographer.

When I was planning my wedding day I knew I wanted to work around Graddy Photography. I was hoping that Justin still had some dates open in the Fall of 2012 since I knew how busy he is with his amazing work and it was such a short notice. He did have just a few dates so we picked the date and the planning begun. We couldn't be any happier with our wedding pictures. We were so pleased and honored to have worked with such and amazing photographer. I know when all is said and done everyone that is honored to have Graddy Photographer for their wedding day is going to be a very pleased client. Also, they are so great to work with. Chrissy does a wonderful job in the behind the scene of wonderful customer service of their clients and Justin makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera .Thanks again to Graddy Photography.

Justin Graddy did an amazing job capturing our big day. We have a great mix of traditional shots with plenty of candid, photojournalistic shots. He captured all of the details that we want to remember about the chapel, flowers, the raception space, even the weather! I also love that he got so many shots from details in the day I wasn't involved in; what a great surprise to log into my online album and see shots of the guys getting ready and our guests enjoying cocktail hour before we arrived! I was even impressed with his intuition to capture moments away from the main action; for example, an amazing shot of my grandparents when my older brother was giving a speech. I'm not sure how Justin knew to point his camera at them, but that picture captures an important moment perfectly.

The thing about Graddy that you should know if you are considering them, is just how EFFICIENTLY Justin is able to shoot your day. I heard horror stories of brides being exhausted after hours of photos pre-wedding or having to spend much of their reception dashing around for the perfect shot. I have to say that I have many, many perfect shots! But we only did a short amount of time before the wedding and Justin's style is so unobtrusive that he didn't step on our toes at all throughout the reception time. If you want great shots, but you don't want to spend your entire wedding day posing for them, Justin is probably your guy!

I'm excited to have Graddy Photography be a part of our many other life milestones to come. I can't think of anyone better to capture them.

AMAZING is an Understatement!
We used Graddy Photography for our September wedding, and we couldn't be happier! Justin and Chrissy were exactly the type of people we wanted to work with on our wedding day. Ofcourse we knew from looking at their website that they were obviously amazing, that turned out to be a complete understatement! Our pictures were phenomenal, and the moments they captured were outstanding I feel like I am reliving our wedding everytime we look at them!! You will NOT be disappointed if you book with Graddy Photography. We look forward to working with them in the future!! More...

Graddy Photography, specifically Justin and Chrissy - are amazingly talented, thorough, dependable and wonderful to work with. They were very knowledgeable of where and how the best shots should be taken for both our wedding pictures, and our engagement pictures. This resulted in very special, meaningful and artistic shots.

I cannot recommend their services more! They took extra time to make sure that we got all of the shots that we wanted, and with the people we wanted. Justin’s eye for capturing touching photos is evident throughout our photos.

Having just gotten married, we received our shots promptly, and were beyond satisfied with everything. The experience and the final product exceeded our expectations. We are so grateful for your services!

Do not hesitate to reserve them for your wedding! You will not regret your decision.

Before the wedding:
Justin made us feel comfortable immediately during engagement photos and captured amazing shots very quickly. We were so goofy we didn't think he was going to get any good ones out of us but he managed to capture every sweet moment and laugh there was.
Chrissy was quick to respond to questions and kept me on trrack with planning.

During the wedding:
The couple was efficient, worked together seamlessly, and kept me calm during photos (which for some reason always have some element of stress). I've been to weddings where the bride was stressed and the photographers actually perpetuated the stress by being short and not helping to keep things moving.
During the wedding - We barely noticed them, they were able to get amazing shots without being obtrusive or in the way.
Such a fun couple to be around and work with!

Final product:
Wedding photo preview was put up on Facebook the week after the wedding while we were on vacation! It was amazing to get a glimpse of the photos so soon. I shared these photos with friends and family with an overwhelming response, so many people said they were the BEST wedding photos they've ever seen.
All of the wedding photos were available a month after the wedding...a HUGE bonus as many brides toss and turn waiting for their photos for months.
Album- we weren't going to get an album because of cost but all I can say is DO IT! You invest so much in finding this quality of photography it's a waste to let it sit on a CD after the wedding. The work that Graddy puts in to the album is incredible and really allows your photos to be showcased the way they should be.

Overall
Professional, experienced, artful eye. This is truly this couple's calling and they are worth every penny.

Early on, we knew that we wanted photography to be a priority in our wedding. Graddy was one of the first vendors we booked, and it was a decision we never regretted! Even though the location and feel of our wedding changed throughout the planning process, we knew that Graddy's photojournalistic style would be a perfect fit no matter what other details changed. We had the chance to work with Justin early on during our engagement photos, and we knew that we had made a great choice. Their experience in the wedding industry is invaluable. They were able to work seamlessly with all of our vendors, and they were able to offer great advice regarding our timeline for the day. When we provided them with our timeline, they encouraged us to consider adding another photographer - we could not be more grateful for this advice! We had gotten to know Chrissy really well throughout the planning process, and it was so great to have her there the day of the wedding. We recently had the opportunity to see our photos, and we were blown away. They didn't miss a single moment, so we were able to relive the day from start to end. They arrived right on time and started shooting without us even realizing it, and when our dinner ran long, they graciously stuck around to make sure they captured pictures of our first dance. Photos aside, Justin and Chrissy were great to work with throughout the planing process. They were prompt in their communication, flexible with our needs and ideas, and extremely professional. We cannot wait to come back to you guys in the future :) More...

We are very happy with our experience with Graddy Photography. We had both our engagement photos and our wedding photos done by Justin and he was very calm and easy to work with. We were immediately comfortable with him from the start (if you're considering not doing engagement photos to save money I'd suggest thinking twice about it as the engagement session really helps you get comfortable with your photographer). Our wedding day was extremely hot and Justin just kept going! We're happy with our pictures and really feel that Justin captured beautiful images of us, our wedding party and our family. He also did an incredible job of capturing images of all of the decorating details - things that we weren't able to see that day, but because he captured them in photos we're able to enjoy! We were also amazed at how inconspicuous Justin was during our ceremony and for the getting ready shots. We know he was there because we have the pictures, but he just kind of blended in! More...

Graddy Photography was amazing and they were wonderful to work with. They were very flexiable and willing to fit our needs. They took the time to get to know my husband and I and took away the nerves of having hundreds of pictures taken of you, and they made it feel that it wasn't just a job to them. As well, as they were great at keeping in touch throughout all your planning and making sure that everything will work out! It was very comforting. We just were able to look at our photos from our wedding, and we have had nothing but wonderful things to say. They take the time to touch up each photo and add color to each to inhance the photo. They turn out remarkable and will be great to have and to look at for the rest of our lives. The photos they take are timeless. Their attention to detail is remarkable, and it is amazing how much they are able to capture in just a few minutes. They are very organized, and they knew exactly what they wanted, and that helped when he was working with our wedding party. Graddy Photography should be your first and only choice for your photographer, they are trust-worthy, professional, they know exactly what they want and where to get a great shot and they are very personable, and that is why my husband and I give them five stars.

We chose Graddy Photography after previously booking with another photographer for our wedding and finding that we just were not happy with the quality of our engagement pictures. We decided to open up our budget and go with a high quality, trusted vendor for our wedding pictures and a friend recommended Graddy.

We couldn't have been happier with the booking experience and were thankful that they were able to work with us on such short notice! They did a great job of alleviating our fears after our bad experience with the other vendor and we felt very confident that they would do a great job capturing our wedding day.

The day of the wedding was fantastic. Justin was professional and unobtrusive. He took tons of really great shots and was very comfortable to work with.

I'm so happy we decided to make the investment for a good, quality photographer because we have some gorgeous images and we felt completely confident that the entire process would be easy and stress free.

Our final images were fantastic and we received them in a very timely matter (which was impressive for a busy summer wedding season.) We couldn't be happier and look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Graddy Photography was amazing for our wedding! I knew they took beautiful pictures from looking on their website, but couldn't believe how amazing our pictures turned out! Also, we had a rather large wedding party, which I know can become difficult when it comes to getting people organized. This was especially true since I was set on not seeing my fiance before walking down the aisle, which cut down on our available time. But Justin and Chrissy were great at handling it, and we were still able to get alot of pictures done in the time crunch. My father in law even commented on how the photographer definitely knew what he was doing :)
I couldn't recommend them more :)

These photographers are absolutely brilliant! I first met Justin and Chrissy when they were doing my brother's senior pictures. When I walked into their studio.. I was amazed. I fell in love with every picture they had on display. I am so glad that we switched photographers! My wedding pictures turned out so beautiful, I couldn't have asked for anything more. They helped make my day so perfect and less stressful. They went above and beyond what we expected! They took every picture that I asked for and they made the experience so fun. They are easy to work with and so dedicated to making sure that you are getting everything that you want out of your wedding pictures. They were 100% focused and dedicated on making sure that me and my husband were having fun and were loving the pictures they were taking. I have had nothing but compliments from our wedding party, family, and friends about the pictures that were taken by Graddy Photography. It was refreshing with people that were excited about being there on our day. If you want to really to make your big day special I suggest working with Graddy. They will take pictures that are so special and that will last a life time. They really know what they are doing and will take the stress away.. and bring their creativity to the event. Justin and Chrissy went above and beyond anything that we could have asked for in pictures and customer service! I definitely can't wait to have them do other milestone pictures for us!! More...

We just got our website password a few days ago and I am in LOVE with my wedding pictures!  From start to finish, Justin and Chrissy have been great to work with and I am so glad that I picked them as my photographer. I was actually a little nervous about how some of my pictures might turn out not because of Graddy Photography but because my church isn't very "pretty" and my reception venue was really limited with spots that they allowed us to go since it is a country club/golf course that is in a neighborhood.  I brought it up to Justin at our engagement session and he said not to worry because he would make the most out of whatever there was to work with.  Now looking through our pictures, I can't believe how amazing some of the shots are!  He even made the cheesy nursery area at the church that I got ready in look good!  We still have to decide if we will have room in our budget to get an album because we  couldn't afford to get one right away but hopefully I can talk my husband into it.  Couldn't be happier!  I will definitely use Graddy Photography for any future photography needs and pass their name on to anyone I know getting married. Thank you Graddy Photography!!! More...

Every question was answered promptly and they worked with us regarding our photo package. We are so pleased with our pictures that we are having a hard time deciding which ones to include in our album.

The photojournalistic style was just what I wanted...the images were eye catching and memorable. It turns out Justin is not only a phenomenal photographer, but fun, easy going, and easy to keep in touch with. The big day was filled with a lot of emotion, all of which Justin was able to capture for us to relive for years to come. The photos taken were beautiful, inventive, and soo meaningful to us. To be honest, they were everything we wanted and so much more. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to go with Graddy...you won't be disappointed. More...

They are very professional, creative, personable, and respond in a VERY timely manner to e-mails which is very important!!!

We are so happy with our decision to book Graddy as our photographer for our wedding! After doing our research and contacting them for availability, we actually chose our wedding date based on what dates they still had available in October, 2011. So in other words we are sooooooooo happy that everything turned out so great. Justin and Chrissy were very prompt in responding to any questions we had throughout the whole process and trust me we had a lot! This was not the case with all other vendors we worked with for our wedding and we really appreciate how they do business. They captured moments during our wedding day that are priceless memories that we will now have for years to come (and not that "posed" stuff either). We couldn't be happier with our decision to book Graddy for our wedding and will be giving them a call when we are ready for our newborn photo session! More...

We recommend Graddy Photography for any couple that is searching for the best photographer! We enjoyed working with him, and we are more than pleased with our photos! Justin was also very excited and willing to travel to our mini "destination" wedding, a few hours north of the Twin Cities in the Brainerd area of MN. This definitely put us at ease, knowing that the photographer we chose was open and excited to go the distance during the height of wedding season. In sharing our wedding photos with friends and family, we have only gotten rave reviews. One of our friends in Wisconsin said they were the best they have ever seen, and wished she had gotten him for her wedding. So it's not just my husband and I being biased! It really is true! Justin's work is phenomenal - you can't go wrong with Graddy Photography! More...

I discoverd Justin's wonderful photography through a close friends wedding photos. I was so impressed with his work that I had to use Graddy Photography for my BIG DAY!! Not only is Justin's work wonderful, we recieved the greatest customer service along with a sneak peak of our wedding photos the next day before we left on our honeymoon. We would highly recommend Graddy!! More...

LOVE LOVE LOVE Graddy Photography! I have known Chrissy since High School and I have been following her and Justin's work for sometime now! My Husband and I had been wanting to do family pictures for awhile and I loved Graddy's work.....but there was one thing that got in our way. We lived in Colorado. Lucky us, my Husband had to travel out there for work, so we packed up the family and off we went to MN for family pictures! I was so excited because I never thought that I would get the chance for them to shoot our family! Needless to say it was everything that I had imagined! They were both very patient with my children and took plenty of shots to give us tons of options upon ordering! My husband and I are looking to renew our vows sometime within the next year here in CO and we hope to have Graddy Photography capture that special moment as well! More...

What an amazing duo! Very easy to work with throughout the entire process as an out of state bride. Emails/phone calls were always returned very promptly. Justin shot our engagement session outside on a blistery cold winters day and got great shots. On our wedding day all our requests were carried out and Justin & Chrissy really took advantage of our venue's unique qualities to capture brilliant shots (based on our sneak peek...which was already posted while on our honeymoon!). Cannot wait to see the rest of our pictures, I am very confident they will exceed our expectations. HIGHLY recommend checking out the amazing talent the Graddy's have to offer, they will not disappoint! More...

I was sitting in Hawaii on our honeymoon just a few days after the wedding and couldn't believe our sneak peak was up already! I was so excited to see the pictures and loved every one!! We haven't quite looked through all of our wedding pictures yet but we had such a great experience with the Graddys. Both Justin and Chrissy returned every email right away and reassured me on all my many questions. The were very professional and blended into the crowd. We had such a large wedding party and that was a little hard to control but we got some amazing pictures. Thanks for capturing our special day! More...

Words cannot even begin to describe our experience with Graddy Photography! It was beyond perfect! Absoutely perfect communication from the start then ending with the most stunning wedding pictures!! This husband and wife team know how to run a business! They are so detailed with every aspect that we literally did not have to worry once about anything with our photography! Justin captured our engagement pictures on one of the coldest days of the winter and took us walking through snow to our knees --- let's just say the pictures were well worth it!! From the get go we put our trust with Justin and knew he would capture our day just like we wanted it. Here we are today looking at these pictures feeling so grateful that we had Graddy as our photographer. We cannot thank you enough for how perfect you have captured our special day! We have already highly recommended you to our friends that have seen our photos! We know that any photos we need moving forward will be done in your studio! Thanks again you guys!! More...

My husband and I enjoyed using Graddy Photography for our engagement and wedding day photos. We really appreciated their promptness in returning phone calls and emails. Also, we got our wedding pics back within a month! I know friends who had waited up to four months for their pictures. The pictures really turned out well and many friends and family commented on how nice they are. More...

Graddy Photography was absolutely the best vendor of any we worked with throughout our wedding process; they were worth every penny we paid them and we are recommending them to everyone. From the time we signed the contract 6 months out, they were part of our day - working to make sure they understood what we wanted and making honest suggestions about how they would be able to best provide that within the budget we were able to spend. They worked with amazing efficiency the day of the wedding, splitting the opportunities and angles between each of the 2 photographers perfectly, and no time was wasted standing around or needlessly positioning people. They came BACK, after their contracted time was over, to offer us the opportunity to catch ONE LAST unique shot, and it ended up being one of our absolute favorites.

One of the biggest points in their favor on the business side, beyond their amazing attention to detail and wealth of knowledge on wedding timing and expectations, was that they actually recommended we stick with our original budget for how long we hired them, rather than try to get an unrealistic amount of shots in an extra hour.

We took their advice on everything and were thrilled with the results: our photos were absolutely stunning. We have been bombarded with praise and requests for our photographer's name; they are so unique and so accurately capture the essence of all the little moments we wanted to remember. Thank you Graddy Photography for capturing us so perfectly on our most perfect day!

Very professional- if you like a photographer that blends into the scene and is unobtrusive Graddy is perfect. Also remarkably adaptable and quick with the formal family portraits so you can get back to your wedding!

Graddy Photography is simply amazing! Justin made sure to cover all the photographs we talked about and after those shots were complete he blended in and we didn't even know he was there... everyone had nothing but great things to say about his presence and friendliness. Once I saw my sneak peak photographs I knew immediately that I had made the right decision- all the emotions of that day were brought to life. I have shown everyone my sneak peaks and they all comment "looks straight out of a magazine" and he made us feel and look stunning. The photography part of the wedding was very important and I had researched photographers for a long time before deciding on Justing Graddy based on his photographs alone- take one look at them and you will have no problem deciding. I would highly recommend Graddy Photography to any Bride- you will never regret the decision! Thanks Justin for the beautiful memories!

We feel so lucky to have photos from our wedding that capture our personal style and the happiness and love of the day. Justin and Chrissy Graddy are absolutely amazing to work with and it was the best decision we made to have Graddy Photography photograph our wedding. They captured every detail of our big day and were such a joy to work with - professional and kind. We would highly recommend Graddy Photography to any couple!

Our sincerest thanks and appreciation to Graddy Photography!

The biggest regret we have with our wedding day was that we did NOT book Graddy Photography as our wedding photographer....we wish we would've come across their website sooner. We booked a very expensive photographer with not enough experience in the wedding industry. The results included my dress nearly being ruined when they took it outside for photographs (that didn't turn out), my "must take" photograph requests being ignored, many missing detail shots, a lack of communication, and just mediocre photos that were mainly shot indoors, again what I did not want. Our whole experience with our photographer has been a mess and I was thrilled when Julie from Smart & Chic contacted me after hearing about what happened to my dress. She offered a "rock the dress" session, doing my hair and makeup, and photos done at the Graddy studio. The generosity of S&C and Graddy has been amazing, since we had no budget for this at all. Justin Graddy took photos of my dress and we walked around New Prague to some great sites to finally get the outdoor photographs that we so desperately wanted. I've seen a couple of the "sneak peek" shots and I can't wait to see the rest, they are just what we were looking for! The fact that the Graddy's took the time to donate their services to make us happy speaks volumes. They are true professionals! More...

My husband, Andy, and I recently used Graddy Photography for our engagement and wedding photos. They were absolutely wonderful! We would work with them again if we had to do all the planning over again. From the very beginning Justin and Chrissy wanted to get to know us. They had us over to their place and showed us all of their materials and former weddings and really went over and above. Connecting with them was always easy either by email or phone and they were always quick to respond. Justin made everything fun when it came time for our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures. He also worked great with parents who have their own ideas of what picture they want taken. He really aimed to please everyone and made sure to check with us before leaving to make sure there wasn't anything else we wanted him to take pictures of.

Justin and Chrissy also were so affordable! Being recent college grads we didn't have a lot of money, but we did know that with the money we did have we wanted to put most of it into the photography since these pictures are what we wre going to have to remember the day for the rest of our lives. We knew the investment would be worth it - and it was! Andy and I are still talking about how thankful we are that we used Graddy Photography.

Justin also did bridal portraits with me. There are only so many opportunities that a girl gets to wear her dress - so make the most of it! The shoot was so much fun and then we had Justin develop a print on velvet to display at the reception - it looked fantastic.

We are still getting compliments on our photos and so many of our friends are saying that they wish they knew about Graddy when they got married.

I met with Graddy Photography and was impressed with their professionalism, personalization, expertise in the industry, and all of their existing work. They created the entire timeline for the day (I could have had them for 20 hours) and were the most responsive to work with. They have the ability to bring out the very best in us and our wedding party. They made the day fun and captured moments we didn't even see ourselves. Their creativity showed through our engagement and wedding photos.
We discovered after the wedding that it was one of the most important investments we made because the day went by so fast and now we have all the images to remind us. It was truly an amazing day for us, our family, and friends and we feel so blessed to have beautiful/timeless/amazing/captivating images of our wedding that will remind us of the beginning of our lives together- images that last a lifetime.
Some of the most amazing photos of the day were when Justin grabbed us and said, "a storm just passed and it is perfect out." We didn't even realize how beautiful it was out in a field with the clouds in the sky. It made for beautiful pictures and was a moment for the two of us! There were so many times throughout the day that happened- Thank You!
I would strongly advise any bride/couple to meet with Justin and Chrissy Graddy. They are a husband and wife team. We were blessed to have them a part of of our day and they can continue to photograph the other major moments in our life. Thank you for the photo memories!

I have never been so impressed in my life!:) There are tons, and tons of photographers I had to sift through on the knot.com page and finally I found the Graddy's!:) They were a breath of fresh air! They did a fantastic job on our engagement photos! For our wedding, they were nothing but flexible and accommodating. We love all of our photos and love our wedding album. They are a husband and wife team and the nice thing about having that is they can capture more moments on film. They both have a wonderful personality and extremely professional and caring. My husband and I have been recommending them to everyone that asks me about photographers:)! They do a great job for weddings but also maternity pictures, seniors--everything! I hope soon to have pictures of babies!:)) More...

We chose Graddy photography for our special day and we LOVED them. They are very unique with their pictures. They make you feel really comfortable with all the different shots they take and treat you and your guests like their family. It was a great feeling knowing they will do anything to make your day special. We always could find them. What i loved the most was looking back a pictures and seeing shots that i didn't even know they were taking, like a picture of all our guests in the church. I 100% recommend them. More...

Graddy Photography is awesome! They do such creative, quality work. Definitely not your typical photographer. Their pictures really tell the story of your wedding day in a photojournalistic style. They really get to know their clients and it shows in their work. We've referred our friends to them and we look forward to having them take our family pictures in the future. More...

Impressed!  My family (large) had our annual holiday photographs taken by Graddy this year.  Graddy was recommended by a friend and a co-worker.  I have worked with a lot of photographers and dealt with the good, the bad and the ugly.Justin and Crissy were none of the good nor bad, definitely good!  The Graddy team was both professional and fun to work with.  We had seven adults, four young children and one dog to deal for them to handle.  Our family opted for outdoor pictures and the cold proved... cold for the children!  Justin and Crissy worked right through a few tears, naps needed and a dog noticing everything running around the park.  Despite the hard moments and uncooperative kids, the pictures Justin took were fantastic!    He got all the pictures we requested, as well as his own ideas.To top things off, we received our CD of pictures WITHIN a week, even with it being a short Holiday week!  And to me, that is definitely worth the 5 stars!

Graddy is a young husband and wife team who really make your day special. They are members of the WPJA, which is something I really wanted for my wedding. After a few couples we knew mentioned their name, we decided to book them!

They were relaxed, calm, and understood the craziness of my family! We took some posed, but creative shots before the wedding, and then I felt like they disappeared (in a good way!) I hate going to weddings where you see the photographer getting in everyone's way - this is not them! They took great shots without interfering with the day.

After dinner, we did some evening shots on the river - they really know how to maximize your venue for great photos!

I would highly recommend this team!

I adore Justin & Krissy. They were so fun at our wedding and they took such stunning pictures. I wish they could have attended the wedding as our guests, as they got along with everyone so well!

I never had to follow up with Graddy - they always returned calls or emails within 24 hours. They also met with us at the last minute over Thanksgiving weekend so we could have pictures for our Christmas cards.

I cannot recommend this vendor highly enough. I felt like they were a steal for the price and I can't imagine a more talented duo.

Justin and Chrissy were outstanding on my daughter's big day! They made sure that they understood what my daughter and her fiance wanted, as well as what the families wished. They were professional, unobtrusive to the ceremonies and the family moments before the wedding. They travelled with the wedding party to 8 different locations for the after-ceremony shoot, and then stayed for all of the main reception highlights. They were helpful, watchful, with a keen eye toward the artistic and meaningful photographic shots. They also worked extremely well with all of our other vendors. Their finished products were so far beyond expectation, it was difficult to choose portraits. Their Wedding Story Photojournal is so moving, it was like going through the wedding day all over again! We would recommend Graddy Photography very highly. More...

We had a pretty good experience with Graddy Photography. They give you a free engagement session but do not do quality work on their engagement sessions. They did not edit our pictures at all. They did a good job editing our wedding pictures though and we got a large number of quality photos. They were easy-going and fun people. They are budget-friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend them and I would also recommend getting a photo book - they are awesome! More...
