  • Houlgrave Gray Photography is a New York City based "boutique" style photo studio that specializes in shooting weddings, portraits and events. First of all, let us tell you what "boutique" style means. It means you get very individualized attention from your photographer from start to finish and that you are never passed off to an associate.
  • We pride ourselves on the details and are happy to say that most of our clients feel that we were like having friends with cameras at their weddings.
  • ABOUT US
  • Ten years ago fashion and portrait photographers, Lisa Houlgrave and Katie Gray turned their cameras away from the glitz and glamour of fashion photography ... focusing instead on TRUE LOVE! Now they have the best of both worlds, finding great joy and inspiration in the beauty of real life while at the same time capturing beautiful images which last a lifetime. With their unobtrusive style and commitment to creative excellance, Houlgrave Gray have become the go-to team for weddings and events wherever the call of true love can be heard! ~ As seen in The Knot ~

  • LISA AND KATIE SAY:
  • "We love what we do ... these occasions are some of the happiest and most important in peoples lives; to be a part of that, to capture moments that will tell their stories for a lifetime and beyond, is a fantastic feeling."
  • OUR CLIENTS SAY:
  • "Katie and Lisa were by far our favorite wedding vendor. Our pictures are beautifully rich and dynamic and successfully captured the essence of who we are as individuals and a couple. At no time during the ceremony or reception were they in any way intrusive but rather blended well to quietly capture special moments and emotions. Most importantly, they were so much fun to be around and brought the perfect combination of professionalism, talent and kindness to make our day truly incredible."
  • ~ Shelly Wall-Lanning New York City
  • "The word superlative comes to mind when I think of the photographs taken at my daughters wedding on Harbour Island. Lisa and Katie beautifully recorded one of the most important events in our lives, and during the few days we spent together they blended seamlessly into our family. Their combined wit and professionalism was a huge comfort to us, and we all treasure the resulting images. I can't wait to invite HoulgraveGray back for an encore photographic performance."

  • " Spectacular!!! Seriously, we gave them very little direction and they did such a fabulous job shooting our Valima. I highly, highly recommend!! Their background with magazine work is apparent. The portraits of us, the candid shots, the still-life shots, we loved the proofs...our only regret is that we wished they had shot our wedding also. Katie's experience with kids is obvious... she took unbelievable shots of my 4 yr old nephew. LOL Can you tell I loved these guys?"
