About Jackson and Gray Photography

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. The team want your photos to be classic, timeless...the sort of thing that won't look out of date 50 years from now.

    No contact from them

    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 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.

    Mr Craig Vanrooy

    We used the former company the my Grey was part of (Grey's weddings) pre wedding shoot went fine and we we pleased but that's about the only part that went well.

    Photographer was late getting to the bride in the morning claiming the sat Nov took them to the wrong address (Google maps and TomTom satnavs take you to the door so no idea how that happened)

    The rest of the day appeared fine and photographer and videographer stayed until late.

    However, everything after the wedding went downhill. Had to chase them down to get the photos and video and when we received them we never got the short video as promised.

    The main video was not what we expected either. Most footage was the speeches. There was only 5 seconds of our vows footage and the footage from our first dance was brief and had different music overlapped.

    We understand that some 'artistic licence' was used but we expected more footage of the key moments than this.

    We have been chasing them up for 18 months now and have been promised the short video as well as the raw video footage and a bottle of bubbly for the inconvenience. Sadly, none of this has materialised and we are still chasing them.

    The wedding photos were OK however all the family pictures were taken in front of a window of a country house (dull considering we were in a beautiful park surrounded by beautiful gardens) whilst I should of said something then I was caught up in the whole day and sadly didn't click on until we received the photos.

    Mr Grey appears to of wound up his previous company which is not surprising considering the sheer volume of negative reviews (that only started appearing after our wedding day sadly)

    I would not recommend.

    Awful company!

    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!!!!!!

    Do not use

    You pay these cowboy photographers up front for their service. Then don't receive what you have paid for. They ignore your emails when you chase up what you are owed. This has happened to loads of people! Do not let them continue ruining peoples wedding days.
