The Grays

Based In: West Virginia, Colorado

We are Shannon + Jake Gray and we believe in moments and creating memories that will never be forgotten. We believe in all the little moments that make us who we are in this world.

Your day should be filled with love and no stress and should be about you two and your love for each other. You can do ALL the things you want to do. If you want to hike up a mountain…do it. If you want to elope with only a few people or no one else around…do it. You can make it the day you really want and one you both will always remember.

We work with laid-back couples who want an awesome experience and love adventuring together. Waterfalls, mountaintops and forests are our favorite things and we’d love to help you plan your day and show you some amazing places and create some moments along the way.

When we aren’t working, you can find us hiking and exploring new places. We travel often and have elopements and intimate weddings all over the US.

The Grays were our photographers for our elopement wedding, and from the first message responding to my inquiry about availability for our wedding date through providing us with the finished product of our photo album, Shannon and Jake went above and beyond to make us happy and make the process of eloping as easy as possible. They are more than photographers; they are knowledgeable about locations, vendors, officiants, etc., and they are super thoughtful when it comes to making sure you're happy on your big day. On top of all of that, their photography work is the best at capturing natural beauty and movement. If you're planning an adventurous elopement, they are your photographers!

The pictures speak for themselves! Shannon and Jake are so talented. Shannon was laying in water and getting bitten by spiders to get the perfect photos. Not to mention they braved hurricane winds and a downpour on top of the mountain after the ceremony and were smiling the whole time, all while pulling rain jackets out of their bags to give us and holding glasses and a bottle of champagne for us! I’m amazed at how good Shannon and Jake are at finding the perfect light! Not only are they talented, they’re truly good people. They were so responsive over the course of our 18-month engagement and were always willing to go beyond their job description to help out while we were frantically trying to re-plan our wedding day after the pandemic hit. We couldn’t recommend them enough! Thank you Shannon+Jake! - Erin+Nick

Where to begin about Shannon and Jake...they are phenomenally talented at capturing beautiful, authentic moments. They photographed our engagement shoot and wedding and the pictures came out better than I could have imagined. We chose them because we wanted real pictures to help us remember our wedding as we experienced it, not artificial poses. Shannon’s mastery of flattering candid shots are totally unmatched, and Jake’s drone shots are beyond amazing. In addition to sheer artistry and technical skill, Shannon and Jake are professional, communicative, super funny and personable, and organized. They helped us from start to finish to help us conceptualize the “feel” we wanted in our photos. We had such a blast hiking with them to get some epic shots! Somehow they manage to balance being super relaxed and fun with organization and great time management. Also, quick turnaround on photos which is a bonus! If you’re looking for gorgeous, creative, authentic photos, you can’t go wrong with the Grays. Would also highly recommend an engagement shoot in addition to just wedding coverage. We were on the fence initially, but are so, so glad we did. It helped the wedding day feel relaxed and fun, and we treasure our pictures from both shoots. Thank you guys so much for helping make our day so special!
