Meet the Team

The Hannah Rose Gray Team has expanded so that we can better serve more people and give clean, crisp, colorful imagery of love, beauty, and sweetness of life as an everlasting art to last generations to come. 

 My team has been hand selected and trained in the HRG style but with their own flare and personality. You are always getting an incredible experience from whoever gets to photograph you.

1. When you are not shooting, what do you spend your time doing? 

OH man this is such a great question!! Well, I am married and I love just hanging out with my guy. I love working out, being outside (walking & running, but mostly walking), lounging with my two cats, or reading a good book! Not going to lie even though I am an active person, there is nothing better than laying down and watching a show on Netflix. This is how I relax and unwind – even if it’s just during my lunch break. I also run two other businesses so my life is a bit CRAY, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

 

2. What is your enneagram number?

I LOVE the enneagram! I obsessed over this personality typing system a couple years ago, and it helped me figure out why I am the way I am and learn myself in a deep way. That being said, I am a 9 on the enneagram with a strong 1 wing (sometime this wing definitely takes over lol)! I should probably mention that I am also a hardcore introvert. I love people and spending time with friends and family but I do need my alone time to recharge and show up well for everyone else. 

 

3. If you could be any character from a movie or tv show who would it be and why?

Okay I have two. This tv show is not as popular so if you know if I AM STOKED. It’s called Vikings. There is a main character named Lagertha. She is a badass viking, mom, and warrior. She fights for what she wants, protects who she cares about, and is not afraid of anyone. I love her boss energy! The next character is Jess from New Girl. Jess is just 100% herself and does not care what anyone else thinks of her; this is a trait that I admire. Also, Jess is just freaking hilarious!! 

 

4. Favorite thing to photograph on a wedding day

My favorite thing to photograph on a wedding day is sheer emotion and unplanned moments. I LOVE LOVE LOVE candid pictures. People might think that I am aloof or just observing, but I am waiting for the moments that are real and raw. I also love details. When I got married, I spent a lot of time on the details (ceremony, reception, signs, flowers). Partly for that reason, I think that all your hard work with planning the wedding should be documented. 

 

5. Favorite Book!

I am in a book club with Hannah, so this is such a hard question because we read so many good books. I also LOVE self-help books lol. I’m probably always reading at least one self help and one fiction book at all times. But the one that I always come back to and recommend to everyone is The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. 

 

 

Jessie- Associate Photographer

 1. When you are not shooting, what do you spend your time doing?When I’m not shooting my main focus it to slow down and be present at home with myself, my boyfriend, our roommates and our friends. Depending on the time of year this might mean I’m in the kitchen or around town at one of our local restaurants. I love cooking, baking, trying new recipes and enjoying food and drinks on our patio with the company of loved ones. During the Fall we get really invested in football and lounging around talking about anything and everything on our mind or going on in life. On nice days you might also find me reading a book in my hammock off of one of the walking trails in Flagstaff.

2. What is your human design? 
I am a ManiGen (Manifesting Generator), which totally explains my almost never-ending energy, impulsive tendencies and why I feel so out of alignment when I’m trying to make things work when they don’t fire me up. Photography and creating have always lit me up and brought me a sense of purpose and ever since I’ve shifted my career and pursued photo full time I’ve found myself in a place of complete satisfaction, gratitude and peace — classic signs that a Manifesting Generator is in alignment!

 

 3. If you could be any character from a movie or tv show who would it be and why?
I’m a massive fan of the show New Girl! And even though her character can be a bit over the top, I do relate a lot to the main character (whose name, coincidentally, is also Jess!). I just feel like the way she shows up for her friends is always heartwarming and I hope I can be that go-to person for my own friends and family. She’s also pretty shameless about her quirkiness which I think we could all lean into a bit more.

4. Favorite thing to photograph on a wedding day
 This is a tough question! Everything? Haha! Okay, okay, on a real note I think my favorite thing to photograph on a wedding day is the interactions between bride and groom and their bridal squad. These are always the people who  know the couple most (individually and as a pair) and are there to share their excitement, stories and emotions. It’s like the celeb squad for the day and getting to be the private photographer for the couple’s crew is such a treat!

 

5. Favorite Book!
I’ve read what feels like a hundred self help books so those automatically come to mind! One of which is called Big Potential by Shawn Achor and it dives deep into the positive psychology behind how social groups work together to bring out the best versions of one another. I graduated from Northern Arizona with a Psychology degree so I geek out a lot on Shawn Achor’s positive psychology teachings. As for non-fiction, I’m a big fan of any book by Jodie Picoult! I’ve read quite a few books from her since middle school and have never been let down
