"Wow. I am absolutely blown away by Garrett's work..."

From start to finish, he made the process easy. With open communication and quick responses, Garrett was always available to answer any of my questions. The day-of, Garrett was a joy to work with. He was direct, efficient, but also allowed my husband and I some time and space to soak up the day. His final product speaks for itself. His immense photographic talent shines through the light, color, and attention to detail in his work. He perfectly captured how elated we felt on the day and now its documented forever <3 My family and I can't thank Him enough!!

"We planned our whole wedding from overseas and Garrett made the whole process feel like a breeze"

One word - WOW. Garrett is an absolute wizard behind his camera and knows how to work the magic! We were lucky enough to have Garrett for our wedding in 2021, and we couldn’t be more happy with how amazing the photos turned out. We planned our whole wedding from overseas and Garrett was very responsive, professional, and made the whole process feel like a breeze. Garrett is the best kind of photographer you want on your special day. He really makes you feel comfortable and is just a friendly face. 1000/10 would recommend Garrett!!!

"Seriously, this is your sign, you need him."

Garrett was hands down the BEST vendor we hired for our wedding!!! We flew him to Texas for it because there was nobody else in the world I’d rather have capture our best day ever. There truly are no words to explain how amazing he is. Not only is he incredibly skilled and gifted, but he will also feel like your best friend and biggest hype man. Our friends and family all adored getting to spend the day with him as well and still rave about him (almost 2 years later!) He fits so seamlessly in to it all feeling almost like a guest, but is definitely very professional at the same time.

His entire process is so thoughtful in helping with a timeline and expertise beforehand to share for your day and he is so intentional to understand who you are and what you want most from a photographer so he can portray those things through his work. He really cares about each individual. I knew exactly what I wanted in a wedding photographer and that was unique, natural, and story-telling images that genuinely portrayed every emotion and moment from the day (even the small but special ones that most people might overlook). I also personally love and asked for a film-ish/grainy/moody blurry movement style and lots of detail photos. Garrett blew my hopes out of the water and I am so grateful we get to cherish our BEAUTIFUL photos and relive the day through them forever. It would’ve been incomplete without him. We are also so so grateful we got to work with him again for our baby announcement photos a year later! You will never regret choosing Garrett Maynard Photo Company!!! Seriously, this is your sign, you need him.

"...He captured the beauty and energy of our families and bridal party perfectly."

Garrett did a PHENOMENAL job capturing our very long and wonderful day. The second he walked in he instantly made everyone feel so comfortable, gave great instruction while we were taking photos and was an incredible hype man keeping everyone engaged and happy. I received over 100 ‘sneak peak’ photos within one week of our wedding and I’m obsessed with every one of them, I feel so beautiful in each one and he captured the beauty and energy of our families and bridal party perfectly. It is clear that this is a passion of his, you could feel it in the moment while we were working together and you can see it in every single photo. 8 stars our of 5!!!

EASY, EARTHY IMAGERY FOR EVERYONE DOWN TO EARTH.

"Garrett impressed us right from the start. We sat down and he showed us his precious work and he was just so friendly. We booked him not too long later! His communication from there was beyond fantastic. With all the changes during the pandemic, he worked with us so well on everything (postponing, locations, etc.). We got a second shooter through him and I highly recommend! He got all of our photos to us before our one month of our wedding and even provided super quick sneak peeks. I wanted a few pictures in time for Christmas and he made those happen! He provided a wonderfully crazy amount of pictures and we’re so grateful! He was so professional and fun the day of. Garrett was truly one of my dream vendors and now a great friend!"

"Garrett did my oldest daughter's senior pictures a few years back, so when it came time for my youngest daughter's to be taken, we knew we had to ask Garrett again. Of course, he came through with gorgeous photos that were EXACTLY what my daughter wanted. Kids these days want unique photos and have crazy standards and fortunately Garrett was able to deliver. I can't stress how easy Garrett is to work with; he puts you at ease, offers lots of suggestions, plays music you like the background, all of which produce beautiful photographs that we will treasure. Additionally, he asked us what kind of background we were looking for, did some research and then offered us several locations to consider. That coupled with perfect weather granted my daughter exactly the photos she wanted. Thank you, Garrett!"

"0/10 would not do again...but only because we only intend to get married once lol -- Our experience with Garrett as our photographer was absolutely wonderful! Words cannot sum up how much we would recommend him as a photographer (and a friend!!). His desire to bring the best of every individual to light inspires and we were astounded by how amazing the photos turned out. Watching him work you can clearly see how intentional he is with capturing the beauty in each moment. He is an excellent communicator and extremely thoughtful. Taking photos can be awkward but not with him!! He makes it so fun, capturing everything he promised to and more!"

"I run a wedding venue and I've had a few couples use Garrett and I really loved how professional he was and his work was absolutely phenomenal! When I finally got engaged, Garrett was at the top of my list and I was so happy when he was available on our date! Unfortunately, our wedding planning took a turn for the worst when the pandemic hit and Garrett was so patient and understanding when I changed things on him at least 2384784564 times. Fast forward to our wedding day and every guest was so impressed with him and how he was everywhere snapping candids and portraits. My husband and I definitely are not the most photogenic, but Garrett made us so comfortable and relaxed! The pictures turned out absolutely incredible! He sent us a couple sneak peek pictures at 12am right after our wedding! Then we received the entire gallery within FIVE days!!!! I don't know how he did it, but he's clearly a magician! So if you're looking for the greatest photographer, who will make you laugh and capture everything you're looking for, all while being extremely professional and in your corner the whole time (even during a pandemic), Garrett is your guy!"
