Meet Joel

Meet Joel Gray

Thank you for visiting us! I like to get to know my clients on a personal level so here is a little bit about me. My name is Joel Gray and I live in Reston, Virginia with my beautiful wife, Alyssa. We both moved here from Manchester, England in 2015 and living here has been quite the adventure.


Throughout my childhood, I always loved taking photos, and it was not long before this enjoyable pastime grew into a passion. I have always been told that I have an eye for seeing things differently. After I graduated from university I bought my first camera to capture my upcoming travel plans. The more places I visited, the more interested I became in documenting them using a variety of photographic techniques. As my enthusiasm for photography grew, I soon realized that photographing other peoples’ special, once in a life time moments, was way more rewarding. I love working with people and I love having the opportunity to help create moments that will last a lifetime.


Every couple has their own unique love story to tell and it is my job to capture all of those emotions and feelings in a visual form. I tend to focus my attention on making the whole experience fun and exciting whilst capturing uniquely composed, creative pictures with the use of beautiful lighting. 


Not only will you walk away with photographs that you will cherish forever, you will also have an enjoyable experience creating those moments. Whether you are looking to capture the romantic moments of engagement, the once in a life time memories of your wedding day, or to cherish the excitement during the final weeks of pregnancy, you certainly have found the right place.


Please feel free to look around and get in touch if you require any more information.
