Mallory, Wedding in Gaithersburg, VA March 2014 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

"My sister-in-law recommended Chris and Brandy Gronde to us and I trusted her judgement, but never anticipated that they would exceed my expectations to the degree in which they did. Chris and Brandy work together as a team (two photographers for less money than most photographers charge for one) and they are absolutely incredible!!! Our extremely reasonable wedding package included a 2 hour engagement session and 8 hours of photography (with 2 photographers) the day of the wedding. The engagement session turned out amazing and was a wonderful way to get to know our photographers before the day of the wedding. Both Chris and Brandy have a wonderfully artistic eye and will go to extremes to capture the right angle (at one point during our engagemnt session Brandy sat on top of Chris's shoulders to get the desired shot). The day of the wedding, they were willing to meet at the salon to get shots of myself and the girls getting ready and then drove me to the hotel when time got short and we needed to get back to get dressed. While at the hotel getting ready, Chris went with the guys to get seperate photos and Brandy stayed with the girls and even did a mini impromptu boudierre session with me. She helped me to get dressed, fixed my hair, and even helped deal with garter issues. There was no limit to the help she was willing to give to make our day perfect! We have not seen all of the wedding photos yet, but the sneak peeks have been amazing! (there is one where we were in the middle of the street that is timeless and gorgeous)!! If the wedding photos are half as good as the engagement session, then they are going to be priceless and incredible! I cannot stress how amazing these two were and say how wonderful it was to have two photographers to catch different angles and moments with the groomsmen and bridesmaids! If you are looking for absolute perfection, then look no further, you have found your photographers!"

"Words cannot describe how happy we were to have Chris & Brandy photograph our wedding. To start, it was so easy to get things arranged with them...from meeting up for the Engagement Photo shoot to taking care of the contracts. They went out of their way to make my husband & myself feel comfortable while having the engagement photos taken, which is amazing in itself, as I think that the only people that are used to having photos taken of themselves are models. They made everything light & fun....by the end of the shoot we were cracking up & having a wonderful time. As for the wedding....FANTASTIC! We did a first look & those pictures are some of my favorites! All the shots I requested were taken care of with no hesitation (ie decor, group shots etc). We had a bit of an unconventional reception...we had it during a baseball game & they got amazing shots both during the reception & following. One of my favorite moments of the whole day was at the end of the night. Following the end of the game the team held fireworks...my new husband and I stole away for a minute & shared a kiss....what a way to end the night & Chris captured that incredible moment for us! As we were leaving the stadium, Chris stopped me and showed me the shot right there...lets just say a few tears of pure joy were shed at that moment. So, if you are looking for a fantastic photographer who is affordable, a pleasure to work with & will make you feel comfortable on one of the most important days in your life look no futher than Gronde Photography."
