Congratulations on your engagement! As you are about to find out (and probably already know) you have a lot of choices to make in the very near future, and a photographer will be one of them. It is important to take your time and look around, because there are a lot of really good ones to pick from! As a photographer I aspire to not only bring the best pictures to my clients but to also bring the best customer service. Acting many times as a wedding planner in addition to being a wedding photographer, I feel it is part of my job to ensure my clients have a smooth and enjoyable wedding day. Pictures are typically returned in three to four weeks after your wedding day, so there is no waiting months to get them back. I love what I do and hope that we would make a good fit for your wedding day! Thank you for taking your time and reading this and I look forward to hear from you!

Briana and Phil are talented, professional photographers. Which was really lucky for my (then) fiance and me because neither one of us had much of an idea what we wanted in our pictures. We had the vague idea that we didn't want anything too stiff, and very few posed pictures. But beyond that...? Luckily our cluelessness didn't faze Briana and Phil. They were so professional and efficient and had no shortage of ideas. When we got the pictures back, you could really feel our personalities and humor, as well as the laid-back wedding vibe. There are so many moments they captured that I had no idea would be so important, from my dad and I right before we walked down the aisle to my brother swinging my grandma around the dance floor. They didn't miss anything. I've been with my (now) husband for 10 years, and initially I hadn't thought the wedding day was that big a deal. Of course it was different once the day arrived, but seeing it through Briana and Phil's lenses really brought it into focus. Pun intended. :) If you're lucky enough to have these talented people document your wedding day, JUMP ON THE CHANCE! I can't recommend them highly enough. Thanks for everything, you guys! Love, Aubrey and Derek

Briana and Phil were amazing to work with. We were able to pick a wedding photography package in our budget but captured our day just as we hoped it would. They took beautiful photos and served as our pep and cheer when the heat was starting to wear us out. If I did the day all over again, I would absolutely recommend them! Also, advice for future brides and grooms, make sure you do the engagement shoot (even if it's a mini one), it was nice to have that time with Phil and Briana before our big day!

This amazing couple was able to capture every moment of our special day! Being able to look back at our wedding pictures and remember the flood of emotions they you felt at a certain moment is so amazing. We can't thank them enough for allowing us to relive our wedding day every time we look at those beautiful photos. When you are trying to select a photographer in the kansas city area, you don't need to look any further than shades of gray photography :)

We hired Shades of Gray Photography to shoot our engagement photos in November '13 and wedding photos in June '14 and could NOT be happier with our pictures! My husband isn't the type to necessarily enjoy posing and smiling for pictures, but Briana and Phil made everything so easy and comfortable for us, we didn't even feel like we were "working hard" for good photos, had no "awkward" moments, and all the photos turned out great! They were affable and so easy to get along with that we felt like we had known them for years. Also, Briana and Phil were a great team on our wedding day, as Briana was able to focus on the bride and bridesmaid aspects of getting ready and Phil was able to capture the groom and groomsmens' time getting ready before joining for group pictures. They caught some very special moments, when I didn't even notice we were being photographed and had very creative ideas and angles for photos, as well as capturing our guests' experience at our wedding. They were the best vendor that we worked with in planning our wedding, hassle free and easy to communicate with in a timely manner. I would recommend Shades of Gray Photography to any couple looking for a great experience and even greater photos!

My husband and I are celebrating our one month anniversary and we cannot say enough great things about Briana and Phil. From the first time we met this incredible husband and wife team, to the engraved wooden box and matching USB flash drive we received in the mail today, they are the absolute BEST photographers out there. Briana and Phil absolutely take into consideration and listen to every single detail and request and off-the-wall idea you have.
They are wonderful. From the first time we met them inside Union Station over Thanksgiving weekend (I felt slightly awkward/shy/nervous)... they were so great at helping Jason and me to relax and be ourselves and encouraged us to wait at the Nelson until after the sun had set in the FREEZING cold to capture some unique (and memorable) shots!! Jason and I really are passionate about photography and it was quite hard to choose a photographer for the big day. We first contacted them in September of 2013 (I think?) and were kind of worried because it seemed like a lot of great people were getting booked (our wedding was 06/07/2014). Briana emailed us back immediately on a Saturday morning and offered a phone consultation within the hour (lucky for us) to run our ideas by her and see what she (and her husband) are all about. My husband, who is typically quite hard to persuade, was sold within the first couple of minutes in speaking with Briana. We saw Shades of Gray's website initially, yet didn't contact them because we assumed they would be way out of our price range. Lucky for us... they weren't!!! Please do not be afraid or intimidated to contact them because of the insane quality of their work. You will be so so glad you did. We absolutely adore Briana and Phil and still chat with them occasionally to this day. Thank you both so much!!

A memory is only as good as the photographs".you have so many times in your adult life where you can howl at the moon. Your wedding is one of those few occasions. Whether you are a traditionalist who plans something elaborate with a lot of people, or are thinking of something intimate with just your close friends and family, photos help you remember just how special it was. Briana and Phil were our wedding photographer's and was an absolute pleasure to work with. They are very friendly and very humble.they were very helpful on how to pose, where the best locations were and the results were incredible. It takes an enormous amount of trust in the person capturing those moments for you to do them justice.
I would refer them to anyone looking for talented people to not only capture a meaningful moment but to create beautiful memories.

Briana and Phil photographed our destination wedding last April in Florida, as well as our engagement pictures prior in KC. From the first time messaging Briana, I knew she and Phil had to be our photographers. The way she communicated with us, her promptness in getting back to me, the excitement she shares for her couples, and her and Phil's ability to truly capture a couples' love is hard to beat.

We never went very long throughout the whole process without touching base, which helped keep me at ease. They arrived to Florida with plenty of time to go scope out the area and see where their prime shots would be and when the sun would be hitting each spot at the perfect time. Our sunset pictures - Ahh! I cannot get enough of them!!

I cannot say enough positive things about these two! Dave and I left our pre-wedding consultation feeling like we had just hung out with some long-time friends, which we absolutely loved and it kept us so at ease during our pictures. They had gone over and beyond what we had expected, captured 900+ of the most beautiful pictures I could have ever asked for, and formed a great relationship.

Thank you both SO much for capturing our engagement photos and big day!

We used Shades of Gray photography for our wedding, and I would recommend them to anyone! We had an indoor wedding at the Redemptorist Catholic church, outdoor photos after, and then the ceremony at Hotel Phillips. They did a great job with both the indoor and outdoor locations, catching all the details throughout the day. They were very organized in planning before the wedding and helped guide us through setting schedules/locations for the day of. Our pictures turned out wonderful!!!

We both had friends and family members in the photography business, so when we set out to choose a photographer for our wedding, we knew we wanted someone with great experience. My husband and I both have a good eye when it comes to photography and we already knew that Phil and Briana were fantastic photographers. When I researched further, I knew that we would be getting a great deal for the package that we wanted. When the wedding day came we had no doubt that we were in great hands. The pictures from our engagement shoot had turned out beautifully and Briana and Phil had spent a lot of time getting to know us and our wants and needs. Many times photographers have to act as wedding coordinators and the flow of the day can often depend completely on them. Briana and Phil were personable, professional and reliable, not to mention a blast to work with on our wedding day! Our pictures turned out even better than we could have hoped (especially considering it was a frigid, cloudy and windy winter day. We couldn't be happier with the results! You will not have any regrets if you choose Shades of Gray!
