Hi There! Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me. I believe that great photographs start with a great relationship. I’m honored to meet you, get to know you, and work together to create something for you that you’ll revisit and share for a lifetime.

For me, photography is a way to discover, preserve and share the beauty and magic of our most spectacular moments… none more important than your wedding day. My wedding day was one of the best days of my life, everything I’d dreamed. I wish the same for you.

My name is Grier and I’m a former professional ballet dancer (SF Ballet and Miami City Ballet) and hopeless romantic. My ballet past means I’m still a perfectionist at heart–and I work hard to create an amazing experience for my clients.

Photography thrilled me from the moment I held my first camera–I was eight. I adore photographing people, playing with color, and creating elegant, rich images. Over the past 20 years, I’ve photographed fashion and film in addition to weddings; my work has appeared in “Nash Bridges”, “Leap of Faith” (NBC), and”Sense8″. I also photographed Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman for HBO’s”Hemingway & Gellhorne” (yes, he looks that good in person).

I love sparkly things, Paleo recipes, and period films with intricate costumes (foreign accents a plus). I have a special fondness for all things vintage. I’m passionate about creating something extraordinary for couples. If you find that my work speaks to you, let’s connect. I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know more about your story.
