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

THE best. We don't even have our pictures back and we are already convinced this is the best pick out there. Kristie Cooper is BADASS! She's fun, creative and she literally RAN from photo op to photo op up and down hills to get the best moments on film.

Raye (and her assistant) were beyond wonderful. We made some last minute changes, including adding a second photographer a few days before the wedding, and Raye just made it work. She was a joy to work with, somehow managed to get the 8 loud, crazy guys to take picture after picture, and kept me calm when things got a little crazy. Raye was not only a great photographer; she was like having a friend there by my side the entire day. I would absolutely recommend Gillette Portrait Arts for any photo needs, especially weddings. (**side note- their prices are significantly lower than most in the area. I searched for weeks before finding Gillette and am so thankful I did)

Raye and her team at Gillette Portrait Arts are amazing. Raye is efficient, has a detailed and eye, a calm and professional demeanor, and she has a great sense of humor. She is clearly experienced and skilled, yet approaches each client with a fresh eye and an open heart. She captures the magic of the person and the moment in her photos. She provides enough guidance to get great pictures but not so much that they are overly staged. She gets light, and composition, and art and uses them to construct beautiful images that showcase people and events rather than showcasing her skills. I highly recommend Gillette Portrait Arts for all of your photography needs! They are real pros and really fun to boot.

My husband and I worked with Kristie for our wedding and have to say our pictures are the most amazing wedding photos we have ever seen. Now, of course we are biased, but Kristie and the team from Gillette captured every detail that was important, and did a fantastic job at using the natural elements of our venue to frame our photos. Kristie was so creative in the shots- our photos literally look like they are out of a wedding magazine photo shoot. I also love all the photos where my husband and I didn't know we were being photographed- the "in the moment" shots were just amazing. Our engagement photos were the same- bright colors, use of the elements. Krisitie and her team are also very organized and were able to control our wedding with FOUR different families and numerous shots to capture. We are excited to have Gillette in our life for all future photo needs!

Where to begin? Kristie is amazing to work with. She worked our wedding on October 12, 2013 and we could not be happier with her service. They worked with our budget and designed a plan that worked for us from the beginning.

She made us comfortable from the engagement session on, and maintained professionalism while having fun through the entire process. I've only seen our preview photos at this point, but have been notified the photos are ready and will be seeing the rest very soon. I have no doubt I will love all of them! We fully intend to use Kristie and Gillette in the future for family shots, etc. and would recommend them to everyone in need of photography. Overall, we were absolutely thrilled with our choice to use Gillette Portrait Arts!

Kristie and Laura were absolutely wonderful to work with. Kristie met us for our engagement photos at the last minute because we had random warm day in January and she knew I wanted to take pictures outside. She has a wonderful bubbly personality but really knows what she is doing. She made my husband and I feel comfortable and laugh and take some really beautiful pictures during the e-session and the wedding day. Both ladies were great the day of the wedding. I was not feeling very well and they took it easy on me but still managed to take all the photos we asked for. They even got my husband to take some really great pictures - which is a big deal because he NEVER takes serious photos. It was a wonderful day! Thanks Kristie and Laura.

Gillette Portrait Arts was amazing!! Raye was so laid back & a fun person to spend our wedding day with!! She posted our pics and got our CD's to us in a very timely manner. Sometimes they were hard to get a response from quickly, but it was usually because it was a weekend and they were probably working at another wedding. Highly recommended!! They all the way came out to Woodstock, MD for my wedding and they are based out of Snow Hill, MD. They seemed to have no problem traveling :)

It is amazing to have such a talented staff of photographers at your fingertips, not to mention all of them being extremely nice, sensitive, and fun. Not only did they create breathtaking photographs, but really captured the essence of the day. I would highly recommend them to any couple.

Love, love, love. Raye and her team were amazing from the first time we sat down to talk concepts, to the incredibly fast turn around time of our wedding day proofs. She was extremely flexible and easy to work with. I would highly recommend using Gillette for any special occasion especially a wedding. Her incredible work almost makes you forget she's a Steelers fan ;)

I could not be more disappointed with my wedding photos. GPA are unprofessional (always take at least a week to respond to e-mails) and took zero initiative to do their job and get memorable photos. The photographer went MIA well before the end of my reception, and on top of everything it took 4 months to get a proof of my album. I'll always regret this choice and I'll never have the wedding photos I thought I would. Seriously, they are the worst!

Raye is absolutely amazing to work with. I knew as soon as I saw her site that I wanted her to be my photographer. She worked with me to develop a package that gave us everything we needed. We really enjoyed doing an engagement shoot with her so we were able to get to know her better. The day of the wedding, you would barely know she was there (which is a good thing!). She moved around and took amazing photos that we will cherish forever. Everyone who has seen our pictures agrees that they are amazing. Though we went over our intended budget, it was worth every penny!

We highly recommend Kristie from Gillette Portrait Arts to be your wedding photographer. She shot our DC-area wedding and we could not be more satisfied with both our photos and with all of our interactions with Kristie, from our initial meeting to working together to select the layout of our wedding album. In fact, our first meeting was for my boudoir session, a gift for my husband about which I was a little nervous. Kristie put me at ease immediately and directed me through a series of poses and looks with which I was comfortable and pleased (as was, ahem, my husband). Further, she was a delightful presence at our celebration who made our day better. Kristie provided a few highlight photos to us just a few short days after our wedding and a curated gallery shortly thereafter. She also offered to edit/photo shop images and followed up on our requests quickly. In short, stop your searching and choose Gillette Portrait Arts!

Choosing Gillette Portrait Arts was seriously the best decision I made regarding vendors for my wedding. Raye is extremely friendly and easy to work with, and our photographer, Kristie, was like a long lost friend. Our wedding and engagement pictures are absolutely perfect; a great mix of contemporary and classic. They are exactly what we were looking for, and I love them. We have received countless compliments on the pictures as well as on Kristie's professionalism and kind personality from wedding guests.

My husband and I loved working with Kristie. She was very creative and had some great suggestions. My husband and I agreed we were not going to see each other before the wedding, but after talking with Kristie we decided to do a first look and my husband and I both agreed it was one of our favorite moments of our wedding. Neither my husband or I like to have our picture taking, but Kristie made us feel very comfortable.

I can't recommend Gillette highly enough! I was so impressed with how well they photographed the small wedding and reception that my husband and I had before his deployment, that they will also be the photographers at our bigger wedding this upcoming fall.

After meeting Raye and Kristie at a bridal show and seeing their work, I knew that they were the ones who I wanted to photograph my wedding. Their photos are fresh and clear and just completely beautiful. The majority of my communication was through Raye via email. She was very timely in her responses and happy to answer any questions I had. They were also understanding and worked with me to figure out the logistics of the smaller wedding. Upon my request, Kristie was the one who actually photographed my wedding though and she did an absolutely amazing job. She took a wide range of pictures before and was unobtrusive during the ceremony. We were thrilled with the shots she got and the quality of the pictures is just breathtaking. Kristie was also incredibly sweet and supportive to me and my family during what can be a very stressful time. She made everyone feel so comfortable that by the end of the night it felt like she was just another guest who happened to be taking pictures! I had several people ask for her contact information afterwards because they were so impressed with her -- and that was before they saw the pictures!

I can't recommend Gillette highly enough! I was so impressed with how well they photographed the small wedding and reception that my husband and I had before his deployment, that they will also be the photographers at our bigger wedding this upcoming fall.

After meeting Raye and Kristie at a bridal show and seeing their work, I knew that they were the ones who I wanted to photograph my wedding. Their photos are fresh and clear and just completely beautiful. The majority of my communication was through Raye via email. She was very timely in her responses and happy to answer any questions I had. They were also understanding and worked with me to figure out the logistics of the smaller wedding. Upon my request, Kristie was the one who actually photographed my wedding though and she did an absolutely amazing job. She took a wide range of pictures before and was unobtrusive during the ceremony. We were thrilled with the shots she got and the quality of the pictures is just breathtaking. Kristie was also incredibly sweet and supportive to me and my family during what can be a very stressful time. She made everyone feel so comfortable that by the end of the night it felt like she was just another guest who happened to be taking pictures! I had several people ask for her contact information afterwards because they were so impressed with her -- and that was before they saw the pictures! Since receiving the pictures and showing them to family and friends, I've had even more requests. I am happy to pass fellow brides or anyone else looking to have amazing and flattering pictures taken by this highly talented team! Read less

Talk about beautiful pictures! I've only seen our preview ones on her website blog but they're all fantastic. Raye is such an easy going person and is a real pleasure to work with. Her assistant, Kristi, is fantastic too! We were all laughing and joking the morning of the wedding while we were getting ready and they both made us feel very comfortable. Raye even stayed like 4 hours later than we had intended and didn't bat an eye about it! Love her! Just check out her website and you'll see you don't have to search any further for your photographer.

Raye did the photography for my sister's wedding and the pcitures were beautiful, and that's why I chose her for my wedding. Raye captured beautiful moments from our wedding, as well as many candid shots of the bridal party and our guests. Raye is very professional, and is very non-intrusive while she is taking pictures. Absolutely wonderful!

Two words…AMAZING and AFFORDABLE. There are not enough words to say how awesome it was working with Raye and Gillette Portrait Arts. She is so talented, creative and down to earth. We had so much fun with Raye during our sessions and I think it really shows in the pictures. She captured real, genuine moments that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. She even has a blog on her website where she posts a few pictures before posting all your proofs, it’s a cool way to give you a preview and a great link to send out to friends and family. She has an amazing eye, is passionate about her work, listens to what you want, AND SHE’S AFFORDABLE. You won’t get a better photographer than Raye. I really feel like once the word spreads about Raye she will be impossible to book, especially given her affordable pricing. I recommend her to ANYONE and everyone. In fact, three of my friends have already signed contracts with Raye.
