If you are looking for a natural & unobtrusive wedding photographer & videographer then you are in the right place. Both Cal & Ed (Jackson & Gray) love to shoot using natural smiles in natural light. The artificial nature of the modern posed wedding photography doesn't appeal at all. We want your photos to be classic, timeless...the sort of thing that won't look out of date 50 years from now.

unresponsive
Booked these guys and should have known it was dodgy from the start. Asked for some examples of their work and they weren't responsive, then finally got back to me and liked their stuff so paid the deposit - one bank account details on their form, completely different details on their email to me... Then saw a lot of bad reviews saying once again how unresponsive they were, so didn't want to risk using them - I emailed them with 4 months to go saying 'unfortunately we won't be able to go ahead with you due to unforeseen circumstances', and asked if there was any way we could have some part of our deposit back, haven't heard back from them at all. Would definitely NOT recommend, definitely do some deep digging for suppliers as these guys ended up costing us around £250 for doing absolutely NOTHING. We eventually found the greatest videographer who I would definitely recommend.

Avoid!!!!!
DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY!!! I paid in full for this company to video my wedding. As my wedding was less than two weeks away and I had still not had any receipt from them, they didn’t recall me paying in full, they began to ignore all of my messages and I still didn’t have a contact number (after requesting on a number of occasions) I began to do some further digging. When we began to read all the bad reviews online we confronted Edward Gray and he admitted that his bad organisation skills had caused the issue but that he was in Thailand until a few days before my wedding (presumidly with my money I had already paid) so wasn’t able to contact me until he was back. We decided that we wanted to book another videographer and Edward offered us a full refund. But we are still yet to receive it, similar to some of the other horror stories we have read online. Luckily, we decided to book another videographer (which proved very difficult because there was less than 2 weeks to go before our wedding) as we didn’t a) want Edward at our wedding day because of the way he dealt with our query and b) we didn’t know if he would turn up and in return send us our video. We still haven’t received our refund as promised. So are £995 down and had to pay an additional £1500 for our new videographer. Avoid at all cost!

Great photos
After reading the bad reviews I wanted to post my experience with Jackson and Gray. I have received my pictures which are amazing. Cal the photographer always gets back to me and helps with any issues I have had. Ed however never replies from what I can gather he deals with the videos and all emails. He is shocking. I waited nearly year for my videos and yes this is way too long but they we’re totally worth the wait. 4 stars because Ed Gray brings the company down which is in line with all the bad reviews on Gray Weddings also.

Awful
We used Edward Gray as our photographer under the company name Gray Weddings (the website has just disappeared so guessing they finally no longer exist, but are still operating under Jackson and Gray!) Our wedding was 16 months ago and we still haven't received what we paid for. We are still waiting for our short video which was a part of the package deal. Furthermore our photos are okay but not to the best standard, all our family pictures are taken in front of a window where all you can see are blinds when in fact we were in a gorgeous park setting. The photographer Becky and videographer turned up late so our photos at home were rushed and the photos of the guests entering the church are taken from them sat in the car. As for our video (don't think Jackson and Gray do videos but since they have gotten rid of Grays Weddings I'm still going to say about them!) we had the videographer film for 10 hours of our day costing us a small fortune, the footage we received was 24 minutes long with 15 minutes of that being our wedding speeches. There is absolutely nothing of us saying out vows!!! We have since been promised the raw footage, the short video we never received and a bottle of champagne to apologise but despite monthly emails to Edward we have had none of this. Their customer service is absolutely disgusting and I wouldn't go anywhere near this company!!!!!!

FAQ
(6)

What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable wedding to date is still the first one I ever shot. That was the day I realised that this was my passion and from that day onwards I have always strived to push myself further and hone my skills.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The thing I would say I'm most proud of is our flexibility when working for our clients. Staying extra hours or going that extra distance to capture the perfect shot is not an issue when it comes to your special day.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always seek a second opinion and don't be afraid to shop around.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I don't think there is one. Every couple will want something different from the last. I think the best thing you can do is work with them leading up to the big day and ask if there is anything they have in mind.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Don't let it deter you from having a shoot outside. Sometimes, unexpected weather can create the most original and exciting images.

Describe how you got into photography.

I first got into photography when I travelled to Japan. Since then Ive been all over the world and in the process my passion for photography as grown.
