Pledging to serve clients with consistency & devotion no matter the circumstance.

US Photographer Based in the Midwest

My Ma calls me “Willie” but most don’t. Virginia is where I grew up, very close to our nation’s capital. It is certainly a place I adore and often miss. Life would oddly have it that I am a Miami Dolphins and a Florida Marlins fan; most people just feel bad for me when they find out.

I am Will DeGraw. 

I am here to serve & support you.

There is nothing else I've ever wanted to do more than 'getting' to document love stories.

– Kellye & Trav

"We connected via IG looking for photographers for our wedding. But this chance encounter was anything but chance. We were unable to use Will for our wedding, but kept in touch. We’re so glad we did because we’ve gained a real friend oh & some bomb pictures!

I was nervous starting out (it’s not every day we do photo shoots ,especially with such a monumental backdrop), but his easy going demeanor made it no pressure. We walked, chatted , laughed and connected all while Will caught our moments & His tunes were on point. 

"Will is an excellent photographer. He caught shots & angles we didn’t know we had in us. Real cool guy."

– Alexia & Connor

“Working with Will was nothing short of spectacular. He took the time to listen to what we wanted and didn't hesitate to add his own creative flare in the mix.

Although the day will forever be imprinted on our hearts, the photos we have will bring us back to that amazing day. All around Will was an integral part of our wedding and cannot recommend him enough!”

"He took the time to listen to what we wanted and didn't hesitate to add his own creative flare in the mix.."

– Emily & Micah

"Through our email communication, I started to see who he was as a person and began feeling incredibly confident that he was meant to be our photographer! I think it’s important that, as clients, we not only love the work and style, but find someone who makes us feel completely comfortable, is attentive, loves to have fun and try new things, and most importantly puts us first. Will did all of that and SO much more! :)"

"Will is so understanding, personable, and seems very dedicated and passionate. He left us feeling he wanted to put us first in all he did."

– Mac & Logan

“Will exceeds every expectation every time! Our entire family’s jaws hit the floor every time we receive photos back. Will captures every moment seamlessly, rolls with all the punches, and our photos truly feel like pieces of our very own art that we’ll treasure forever. Cannot recommend it enough!! Worth every single penny!”

"HE’S SO FUN AND EASY TO WORK WITH. HE MAKES US FEEL SO RELAXED! IT IS EASY TO BE OURSELVES AROUND HIM."

– Sarah & Andrew

“We had an amazing engagement session with Will! He made us feel comfortable and at ease while taking our pictures. We will cherish these photos forever and are so thankful we chose Will to be our engagement and wedding photographer! As an added bonus our photos were returned to us within 48 hours which was the cherry on top :) Thank you so much, Will!!”

"HE CAPTURED US IN SUCH A REAL AND AUTHENTIC WAY AND WE COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH HOW OUR PICTURES TURNED OUT."

– Georgia & Shane

"Will’s quick response, flexibility, and style of work made for such an easy decision to work with him. We literally had everything we needed from him and the contract signed within 24 hours! It was so refreshing to work with someone so responsive and helpful! Everything moved so quickly for us that week, so I really appreciated his guidance and taking control of the whole process, making it super easy for us."

"It was so refreshing to work with someone so responsive and helpful!"

– Adrianna & Riley

"I was on the hunt for someone who captured real moments, had fun with it, and had a more simple, real, natural editing style. I came across Will’s page, via mutual friends on Instagram, and I LOVED his work.

Everyone was talking so highly of Will at the wedding. My friends and family kept asking where we found him because you were so respectful, kind, calm, and truly cared about us. His talent would have been enough for me to ask him to take pictures again, but now after our wedding day with him, his character speaks even louder."

"I remember overhearing him say he was here to serve and that speaks volumes as a photographer."

– Taylor & Chris

"We are so grateful for Will and the services he provided us on our wedding day. Beyond capturing special moments throughout our day, he went over and beyond to make sure it ran smoothly and helped us keep calm. He truly has a servant’s heart, and we were recipients of that! So many of our family members and guests noticed as well!"

"he went over and beyond to make sure it ran smoothly and helped us keep calm."

– Liz & Keelan

“We loved working with Will! His patience and guidance allowed us to feel comfortable and at ease behind the camera. Will worked creatively with space, time, and resources in order to capture some beautiful photos that felt authentic and natural. It was an honor to work with Will, and we would love to work with him again in the future!”

"His patience and guidance allowed us to feel comfortable and at ease behind the camera."

– Rachel & Luke

"I don't say this lightly and mean it exactly as I say it: Will is a genius behind the camera. Before working with him I certainly had the expectation that we would receive great photos, but what I imagined didn't even compare to the caliber and beauty that he delivered. The moments he captures are stunning, his presence and personality the day of are all class, and the comprehensive quality of his work is incredible from start to finish. I cannot recommend him highly enough: the decision to work with him will be a decision you're proud of for the rest of your life."

"Will is a genius behind the camera."

– Madi & Micah

“Will didn't just take pictures, he commanded the day and the pace, which was super helpful. He was good at working with the time constraints, while still capturing every moment we wanted. He was also VERY good at directing people. I love that he told us specific poses and was able to take charge in all situations, whether he was helping with the dress, tying bow ties, or pinning flowers, he went above and beyond our expectations for the wedding day!”

"WILL KEPT THE DAY FUN! HE GAVE US SPACE TO MAKE THE DAY ABOUT US, NOT JUST ABOUT TAKING PHOTOS. HE GAVE US BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES THAT WE CAN LOOK BACK ON FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES."

– Dani & Nick

"I loved his editing (coloring and poses/shapes/landscapes/whatnot) and depictions of the couples when I crept his Instagram. His style was EXACTLY what I was looking for. The colors were creamy and bright/light and a storytelling perspective. 

Overall, I would say Will’s strengths are his style/editing, capturing the moments and who we are, dedicated, timely, professional, creative, knowledge in knowing what works for lighting, posing, etc., and an overall great human!!!"

"What led us to ultimately book Will was his style and aesthetic."

– Kelly & Brett

"What ultimately led us to booking Will as a photographer... 1) He was recommended by Perry James. We know that he is an outstanding photographer and knowing that you came recommended by him was a huge plus. 2) He reached out to us right away and his email displayed friendly, energetic energy. 3) We loved Will’s candid photographs! He has a gift for capturing the moment without it being staged. His photographs are all beautiful, but it’s the candid photos that I loved most. 4) The first time I spoke with him on the phone, he was beyond kind, genuine, and displayed quiet, confidence, and faith. I appreciated his calmness and patience.
