Corlis and Megan secretly photographed our proposal in December in Millenium Park, Chicago. It was hands down the best day of my life to date (we haven't gotten married yet!). Jake and I laugh because I have no clue what he said during his proposal or even any memories of the actual event, I was just so stunned. So it is so nice to have our pictures and video to share with our family and friends, it makes everyone feel so included, and reminds me it did ACTUALLY happen! After our proposal, we got a photo-shoot, and for being rainy, cold wintry weather I couldn't believe how nice we looked, not like wet dogs! :) I can't wait to see how great they turn out when I actually know I'm being photographed on our wedding day. We've had nothing short of a wonderful experience with Megan and Corlis and because of this we didn't skip a beat booking them for our wedding this August.
With all the stress of planning a wedding, the last thing you need to worry about it making sure your photographer gets the right photos and poses. Corlis and Megan were wonderful to work with! He knew exactly what I wanted and I never had to worry about a thing. He took control of the wedding party and told everyone where to go and what to do. I've worked with other photographers in the past who just sit behind the camera and expect you to do all the work- this was the exact opposite! Made my wedding day stress and hastle free! AND most importantly- the pictures from my wedding day are absolutely amazing!! It was about 100 degrees on my wedding day and the air conditioning broke in our trolley. I was worried the pictures would turn out horrible because we were all a "hot mess," but that wasn't the case at all. I could not be happier with the photos! He also made sure to capture all of the little wedding details that we put so much time and effort into. At my wedding reception he already had a slideshow put together for my guests to see, which everyone enjoyed! We recieved are pictures right away- no long wait! Two amazing people to work with and I HIGHLY recommend them!!
Corlis was extremely easy to work with, and even more reasonably priced for the QUALITY of photos we received. Not only did we hire him for our wedding photos, he also did our engagement photos as well. I had a location in mind where I wanted to take them, and he was very flexible in meeting us there. At the wedding he captured all of the important moments without me having to make him a list of "what i wanted." When what I wanted was a professional who knew what pictures to capture and would be also a consultant to make sure we captured the things we would regret not having. Planning a wedding is tough enough, you look to the professionals you hire to know all the small details of their job, not have to be told what to do and Corlis was exactly that person. I had nothing to worry about the entire day. His creativity was awesome, he is friendly, and fun, and I could not be happier with our wedding photos.
Corlis and Patti were amazing!!! They are super fun and really made us feel comfortable. We got out pictures really fast. Our album just arrived and we are stunned!!! Its even more beautiful than we could have imagined! At first we were a little apprehensive about the cost, but now we know they were worth every penny!!! We recommend Corlis Gray Photography 100%
Gray Photography is definitely one of the top Wedding photographers in Chicagoland in my opinion. I've worked with hundreds of photographers over the 18+ years I've been in the Wedding industry and they are at the top of my list.
