We were fortunate enough to have Griffin photograph our September wedding. In my career, I work with many photographers on different shoots, so I feel I am more critical as far as my expectations go compared to the average bride. After discussing the style and feel we were interest in capturing, I was completely confident going into the day with Griffin as our photographer. He was open to what we wanted, but also offered a lot of really practical suggestions that we wouldn't have thought of on our own, and ultimately helped to make the day go smoothly. Logistically, his insight was really important in assuring that we moved through pictures without a lot of fuss or time, and that was really important to us. Throughout the planning process, it was obvious that Griffin wanted to do exactly what made us happy and was objective in his suggestions, I never felt in any way pushed his own personal tastes on us or tried to drive us towards a generic wedding package like a lot of photographers. He was clearly going to make it all about us.
He was so pleasant to be around on the day and stayed on the outskirts to allow me my private time with my family, but somehow managed to capture everything. It was just like having an old friend there, and my family and friends appreciated having someone so genuine and enjoyable with us on such a special day when there are so many personal and emotional moments. Griffin has a very calming way about him which helped tremendously when things outside of his control didn’t go as planned. He was adaptable and made stressful situations easier— he was even down on his hands and knees with scissors clipping loose threads from my dress when I noticed an issue! One thing very important to us was feeling like we were not posing all day, or that the photography was in our face or forced. I can honestly say, I vaguely remember seeing him throughout the day, yet our pictures looked like he was front and center the whole time and he didn’t miss a beat.
I would wholeheartedly recommend having Griffin as your wedding photographer, or on any other day when you want to capture something truly special. Our photographs were so lovely and absolutely blew me away. They were everything we hoped for and more, but along with that the process and the interaction with Griffin was so enjoyable and so easy. Griffin is a true artist, and that’s what your getting with his services. So many of the pictures we got back absolutely took my breath away because of the way he caught the light, or a moment, or a movement- it was just beautiful. With him, you're getting someone that will look at each shot with a critical and creative eye in order to give you something truly unique and absolutely your own. He's not a photographer that will just go through the motions-- he's going to give you 100% and make whatever vision you have in your head come to life.

Griffin was great to work with and produced beautiful wedding pictures. He has a great sense of when to take charge and when to follow the lead of others. He was not overbearing like many wedding photographers are in trying to direct the bridal party (we've all been in a wedding in which the photographer is controlling and wants to run the show). Having never met him until my wedding day, he made everyone feel at ease and made the photo-taking fun. The pictures are fantastic and were delivered in a timely manner. Considering I was an out-of-town bride, Griffin was easy to work with and very responsive. He even took my call when he was overseas on vacation! I highly recommend Griffin Hart Davis Photography.

Griffin was a FANTASTIC photographer. We couldn't be happier with our pictures- they turned out beautifully. He was also a pleasure to work with on the wedding day. I had not met him before the wedding day, but instantly felt comfortable with him when he showed up. He was friendly and funny, but also assertive enough to manage our very large wedding party. I also found his prices very reasonable. You can't go wrong with Griffin!

From beginning to end, Griffin was fabulous to work with. Photography was the first thing I started researching when I began wedding planning about a year and a half before our wedding. After researching for weeks and speaking to numerous photographers, once I spoke to Griffin, I knew he was the right person for us! I ended up hiring Griffin before we even decided on a venue. Our engagement shoot was so much fun and the photos came out absolutely stunning. Everyone raved about them. Leading up the wedding, Griffin did a great job of communicating with me and making sure that our timeline was on track and set to go. We saw Griffin the night before the wedding as he was taking photos at our rehearsal dinner which was fantastic, they came out beautifully and we are so glad he was there to document those special moments! The morning of the wedding, my groom and his brother were playing golf, and Griffin came out a little bit early to capture some photos of them sharing some one on one time, such a great touch! When he and Emma made it to the venue, I was definitely feeling stressed and he was able to ease that so much! He kept us on track and really took charge of the timeline to be sure we were where we were supposed to be and when. He was so easy and fun to work with and our photos came out absolutely amazing!! We love them all, there are so many wonderful photos to choose from. From top to bottom, I would recommend Griffin Hart Davis Photography, you will not be disappointed!!

I cannot say enough complimentary things about Griffin and our experience with him throughout the wedding planning process and on our big day. He was absolutely delightful to work with and he captured our wedding so beautifully. Griffin immediately made us both feel comfortable being photographed (which is not always easy!) and he was great at keeping the mood light so all of our photos are very natural and real. He was incredibly organized and made sure we stayed on schedule and had time for all the photos we had discussed beforehand. We will cherish our wedding photos for the rest of our lives, and I'm so happy we chose Griffin to capture the day.

Griffin was awesome. Could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding. He was so personable and blended right in with everyone. Our pictures turned out so well. Could not have imagine any better. He has an amazing vision and is an awesome person. Would recommend and use again.

Griffin did an amazing job with our engagement pictures and our wedding day pictures. He really listened to what we wanted and what was important to us and approached it with his own unique artistic style. He is very responsive and always great to communicate with and did a wonderful job the day of keeping everything on track timing wise and making sure we were taken care of. He was also flexible on finding a package that fit our budget and preferences and even experimented with some videography in our engagement shoot! I highly recommend him for both engagement and wedding photography!

We absolutely loved working with Griffin! I have known him for several years, and was thrilled to hear that he was launching of his own business and that it was going to coincide perfectly with the timing of our wedding. He worked incredibly hard to give us exactly what we wanted/needed for both our engagement shoot and our wedding day photography. He planned our engagement shoot on a beautiful late summer day at Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia. Although it wasn't exactly close to Greensboro, he knew that it would be worth the trek and it would be the perfect setting to shoot us in--he was right and we got to see the most beautiful sunset there that evening! As our wedding day approached, Griffin helped me plan my time line, and took a lot of time to make sure that he was going to be able to capture so many special moments throughout the day. As anyone can imagine, I was full of stress and nervous energy the day of--when I got back from the salon, Griffin was there at our venue getting set up. He looked at me and said "don't worry--I've got this now." From that point on, I knew I could relax and enjoy being in the moment. Griffin was going to tell me and everyone else where to go and what to do, and the pressure was totally off! That meant so much, and he truly did what he said he was going to do. After seeing the engagement photos, we knew that our wedding photos were going to be beautiful, but we didn't fully expect the end result. They were beyond gorgeous! I love his style--very natural, soft/diffused lighting, not over edited, not too staged or posed etc. Just real moments on an incredibly special day in our lives. He made us feel totally comfortable in front of a camera, which is not something that is usually easy for us. It was truly a challenge to select the images for our wedding album because there was so many great options to choose from--what a great problem to have! I truly cannot say enough good things about him as an individual and also about his work. He is an incredibly talented photographer, and a really fun guy to hang out with! Griffin Hart Davis Photography will far exceed your expectations!!!

There are not enough nice things I could say about Griffin. I have known him since middle school so when I got engaged I knew that he HAD to be be our photographer. He is kind, easy to work with, incredibly talented and genuinely was just as excited as we were for the big weekend. We had people travel from all over the world and the pictures he took are priceless. Throughout the whole weekend he made us feel comfortable and was extremely professional! He truly captured the essence of our day down to every detail. He even got 150 people together for a group picture....easily!! He worked seamlessly with the other vendors throughout the day which was such a blessing. When we got our wedding pictures back, he blew us away. They are absolutely perfect. He even came on Friday to the Rehearsal dinner to make sure there weren't moments he didn't capture. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better person to capture our weekend. To say he went above and beyond, is an understatement!! Griffin.... We could not thank you enough!!!

Griffin is an amazing photographer and we are so happy he photographed one of our most memorable and amazing moments of our life. He was so easy to work with and was able to work around our very full day of events. He took on not only the rehearsal dinner on Friday night but did the whole day on Saturday from getting ready in the morning, a noon ceremony and a dance party at 8pm. He was able to capture all the special moments as well as produce beautiful photos. The greatest part about working with Griffin was that we truly felt like he was part of our wedding and not on the sidelines which made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed when he was taking our photos. Griffin also brings creativity and knowledge about taking beautiful photos. He knows exactly what he is doing and that is exactly what anyone needs to capture their wedding day. I could not have asked for more when we hired Griffin. I would not have put our photos and memories of our wedding in anybody else's hand. He truly went beyond my expectations as our wedding photographer.

I couldn't be happier with our entire experience with Griffin Hart Davis! He knows what he is doing and he's affordable. Griffin was available for several functions surrounding the wedding and, of course, for the wedding and the reception. The process was seamless and several people commented on how painless it was to take all the group pictures after the wedding and before the reception. He was friendly and had great ideas. Griffin is a real professional with a great personality and delivery. He was on top of the whole process, fit in well with the bridal party and family members. He's willing to travel to your destination too - and the price is reasonable. Call him, you'll be glad you did.

Wow, I cannot say enough great things about Griffin. He delivered and exceeded on my expectations from start to finish. Where do I begin?
Let's start at the beginning. I am the bride, by the way. My first conversation with Griffin felt like I was talking to an old friend. I immediately liked him and felt his warmth and positive spirit. He asked me questions to get a sense for my style and wishes then gave me a clear overview of what to expect for the day. I could tell I was in good hands - and he did not disappoint.
When I met him in person, he was unbelievably friendly, and fit right into the wedding crew. Although he was technically taking photos, aka "working", it felt like he was part of the party and he contributed to the excitement and fun. He spent some time at the salon with me and my bridesmaids and we just had an absolute ball. He was great at taking candid shots while not being intrusive.
He continued the list of shots, i.e. groomsmen getting ready, bridesmaids with dresses, bride putting on dress, etc like a true pro. Again, seamlessly fitting into the group and contributing to the overall positive mood of the day.
He was instructive and clear without being pushy. I know I speak for me and all my bridesmaids when I say we completely trusted his instructions and knew he had a vision for getting the best shots. He additionally worked very well with the videographer and was able to completely handle that relationship so the videographer was informed about timeline, etc (less work for me :)).
He was also very much cared about my (the brides) desires and wishes, checking in with me throughout the event to make sure I was happy! He had such command on the event and allowed me, the bride, to do what I wanted, which was just relax and enjoy the day! What a gem!!!
All in all, after just two short days together, I feel like Griffin is a friend and everyone in my wedding party feels the same way. If you want a wedding photographer who 1. knows what he is doing and produces incredible photos and you can trust 100% 2. Is incredibly fun and positive 3. will fit right in with all your loved ones and wedding party, Griffin Hart Davis is your guy!!!

Griffin was hands down the best photographer. He was very personable and really got to know our personalities. He captured every single special moment of our special day without me even having to ask him. Griffin really took his time and devoted his whole time to every singlething we ever wanted. I would recommend to anyone and will definitely use again for other photographer sessions!
