"Ro was one of the best wedding decisions we've made so far. He took our engagement photos for us.
He was so easy to work with. We wanted to take pictures at UW with the cherry blossoms. He truly went above and beyond and communicated us through email many times to make himself available during that short window of time.
On the day of, he had so many great ideas for poses that we felt immediately at ease. Then, after the shoot, he kept sending us updated images so we could see how they were turning out. We had a hard time picking our top 10 and top 30 because we loved them all!
Hire Ro! You won't be sorry."
- Aimee B.
"Ro was a pleasure to work with! Great communication and very professional. His photos turned out amazing and he has a really great eye for being creative. He was prompt being at the location at the agreed time. His turnover of the photos were also prompt and only took a week. Thank you, Ro!"
- Sonjia S.
"Trying to find the right wedding photographer sometimes seemed like the most daunting task in the planning process. Thankfully we found Ro! Everything from the initial meeting to getting our pictures back after the wedding was made so convenient, professional, yet relaxed. Ro genuinely cares about his clients and his photographs, and it definitely shows in his work. He paid attention to certain pictures we wanted taken, but also used his creative eye to improvise.
The packages he offered were great, and we didn't have to wait long to see our gorgeous wedding pictures.
I honestly have so many great things to say about Rowell, this review might go on too long. I highly recommend Haze Gray Pixels to anyone looking for a photographer. You won't be disappointed!"

"This man is a genius with a camera. I needed to get engagement pictures done in a hurry for my wedding and Ro was excellent to work with. He responded very quickly to every message and question I had, was flexible and worked with my needs and availability. His pricing was very reasonable, especially considering all the editing work he did on them. As I was new to the Seattle area I had to put a lot of trust in Ro for the best location for pictures. He chose the waterfront area in Seattle and I couldn't have asked for a better place. He is truly skilled and his quality of work was exceptional. He went above and beyond what he needed to do. He was really fun to work with. I would recommend him to any of my friends. The only thing that prevented us from using him for our wedding was that we got married in Texas. He really was phenomenal."

"Ro was absolutely wonderful to work with! My fiance and I are not very comfortable being the center of attention so taking engagement photos was pretty scary for us. But, Ro made it so fun and not awkward at all. We felt very comfortable and so the shoot was very natural. At our session it was raining a bit but he new how to work around it and still came up with great pictures! He also goes above and beyond after your shoot. He helped us make our website, save the date and took time to edit our photos that turned out all great. If anyone is looking for a top notch photographer for any occasion Haze Gray Pixels should be at the top of you list. Thank you Ro! " -
"We hired Ro to take some family pictures of my husband, myself and our two pups. His prices are super reasonable and I loved his work. He shot our friends engagement and they recommended him. He is very friendly and made us feel super comfortable. My husband and I got to be our usual silly goofy selves and Ro captured us perfectly. He was very accommodating and had a super quick turnaround time. After getting married about 2 years ago, we had to wait 3 months to see anything! That was so hard! But Ro's turnaround time was 1 week AND he sent me a sneak peak 1 day after our session. We will be contacting Ro again probably next year for some more family shots. We originally set our start time for 9:00am, but due to crazy rainy/gloomy weather he suggested we push it back a couple hours, which was the best thing. We got some fun rain/umbrella shots and then the rain stopped! "
- Ali R.
"Ro took our engagement photos at the Olympic sculpture park along the waterfront. He did an absolutely wonderful job - he was very easy going to work with, and took some awesome pictures. My fiance and I were impressed with both the quality of the photos as well as how quickly he returned them. We also loved the slideshow he put together. We are very excited to use him as our photographer for our wedding!"
- Erin S.
"We're so happy that we chose Ro to do our Engagement Shoot this Fall! This man is a complete genius when it comes to knowing just what to look for with regards to the perfect light and having all of the right elements to frame people and make a stellar shot. Simply put, his work is incredible and he is a master of his craft. Beyond that though, he is also extremely humble and easy to work with. Ro is exactly what we were looking for all around when we searched for the right photographer for us and we couldn't be more pleased with the results."
- Candace B.
"We hired Rowell as our only photographer for our wedding, which happened last October 21st near Greenlake, in Seattle/WA. It was a rainy day, but we got a couple hours of good weather (even the sun showed up briefly).
It's hard to describe how good Ro is, he is like a whole team in one person. He is an outstanding artist (his pictures are unbelievable), very organized, quick, sharp and prompt. He did much more than we expected, coming to the rehearsal dinner, staying until the very last minute of the wedding, taking thousands of great photos, being so gentle with everyone, taking photo requests, etc. I can't write enough good things about him.
What could have been improved? It's hard to say. Well, the engagement photo shoot didn't go so well (my fiancée didn't like the pictures, although I loved them) because we came straight from work and didn't have chance to put on make up. It was our responsibility, I know, but maybe if we got extra reminders we would have planned better for that.
Rowell, thank you so much for your professionalism. You are great!"
- Ewerton S.
"My Fiancé & I usually aren't the photogenic type, however, Rowell made this very comfortable for us. He was super laid back and he constructed the experience to be as "normal" as possible. We took our engagement photos at Lincoln Park in West Seattle and are incredibly satisfied with the results. Thanks Rowell for giving us moments we can reflect back on for years to come!!! Go Seahawks :)"
- April C.
"It was fun. He has a real eye for the true beauty in the world. He knows how to play around with the light that he is given and he can really make things work. He can use old run down places and turn them into some really nice shoots. I worked with him for senior pictures and I had an amazing experience. Would definitely recommend him to friends and family. "
- Lorenz D.
"Rowell was amazing, I couldn't have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. He was extremely nice and very professional. The photos turned out beautifully and were everything we wanted and more. I would recommend him to all my friends and family. "
- Kara W.
"Ro was amazing to work with for our engagement session. He was willing to travel wherever we wanted to go and even managed great photos under a time constraint of 20 minutes at one of our locations. He was patient, kind, and really knows how to make art out of love. Highly recommended!"
- Mika T.
"I cannot, cannot say enough positive things about Ro. He was amazing to work with, and his pictures are GREAT!!! He shot my sons' football game and we got so many fantastic pictures. He was on time, extremely pleasant, and professional throughout. I would have paid twice what we did for the work delivered. I can't wait for next season! Thank you, Ro!!!"

"We hired Rowell Ducay for our engagement photo session in August, and we are exceptionally impressed with his talents and professionalism. He did a truly amazing job with each and every one of our photos. He is very friendly and down to earth, and makes you feel comfortable, even if you have never had professional pictures done before. He has a truly unique vision, and knows when to capture beautiful moments. You can tell he is passionate about what he does, and he take his time with you. He never makes you feel rushed, he is the type of photographer who likes to make sure everything is perfect. For our session, he really goes out of the way to make his clients happy. I feel like he went above and beyond for us in a lot of ways, and Cedric and I really appreciated it. We absolutely love our photos, and all of my friends are asking who took them. I will be referring Rowell to everyone I know who needs photos done in the future.
Thanks for helping us capture one of the best moments of our lives! It's something we will always have to look at and remember. :) "

"My company and I had an INCREDIBLE experience with our photographer Rowell Ducay! Not only was he professional, knowledgable, but also made our models feel as comfortable as possible! The turn around time from photoshoot to the time we recieved our photos was promptly and exactly the day he said they would be done. Not only would I recommend Rowell to anyone looking to have GREAT photos but my company and my family will be using rowell for all our future needs!! Thank you from the whole team over at K.N.O.E.

"Having Rowell as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He did a fantastic job. My husband and I were both impressed by the quality of care he put into our special day. From planning it all out with us before hand, being present and on cue for every special moment during the wedding, to getting our pictures back to us quickly afterwards...we couldn't have found a better photographer. He takes his job very seriously, cares about the details, and you can tell he really loves capturing these special moments. We were blessed to work with him, and we absolutely love our beautiful photos!"
- Kristina K.
"Rowell did an outstanding job.
He did the photography for our daughter's wedding. Indoor-outdoor, rehearsal, ceremony, reception and much much more.
He is literally the BEST photographer! seriously!! check him out at hazegraypixels.com. We REALLY recommend him .
He was so kind, flexible, considerate, helpful, obviously talented, and dedicated to making our photos the best!
His photos are creative and breath-taking."
- Laureen K.
"We found Rowell Ducay through Thumbtack when we were looking for someone to photograph our new vehicles on a beach location, and this was the best experience EVER! Rowell contacted me within 20 minutes and we set an appointment within the next few days. His sincere interest in our project was amazing and his finished photos were absolutely beautiful! Our photos were returned within a couple of days and were gorgeous! The HD quality was perfect. He is truly an artist as a photographer! And a really nice guy to boot! We will make Rowell our personal and business photographer on every project we have coming in the future. Trust us when we say, you will be EXTREMELY HAPPY when you hire him as your photographer! Gary and Barbara"
- Barbara W.
"Rowell was awesome! I play for the Seattle Sounders PDL U-23 team and I had him come out and take some shots from our last game of the summer. The photos turned out far better than what I imagined! I would definitely recommend Rowell for your sports photography needs. "
- Eli D.
"Ro is a really easy going guy. He made me and my boyfriend feel very comfortable. We'd never done a photo shoot together. I had only done them at a few times for weddings that I was a part of. We hired Ro to do a Maternity Session. His pricing was reasonable / competitive. I will recommend Ro to my friends & family. We plan on hiring Ro again in the near future, probably for our newborn photo's & whenever we decide to get married. We were and still are satisfied with Rowell's services we are still receiving many compliments on the photo's he took of us.
Ro You Rock! Thank you very much. We'll be keeping in touch with you.
Cassondra & Colin"

"I have no words to describe my experience with Ro. Ro happened to be so focused on the needs of his customers that it makes the entire experience with him a pleasure. We shot at number of locations and, every time, I was amazed with Ro's dedication in thinking through what positions, backgrounds, and settings would bring great shots. At each location, Ro kept shooting me until he was satisfied that we had great clicks. Before I met Ro, I was afraid that the cameraman would just do his time for 2 hours irrespective of whether we get great shots - I was completely wrong - Ro never took a look at his watch, he was so deeply involved in shooting the photographs that he lost the count of time. Bringing great photos was his top priority which made me respect him. Of course we went over our decided time, but Ro never asked me for extra payment. Nonetheless I paid him extra because the photographs came out to be awesome. It was a delightful experience. "
- Ankur G.
"Where do we begin? Ro was an AMAZING photographer. Taking photos with a very energetic 4 year old is not easy but Ro was so awesome with Jae. He really understood what I wanted to accomplish and followed through perfectly. I was so pleased with the outcome of our photos. He has a great imagination and feel for the camera. Our experience was like no other. We would DEFINETLY hire him again for more photos in the future. He really cared about what we wanted and put in a lot of work for our engagement photos. We can't thank him enough!
- Eric C.
"The most wonderful experience ever!! Very professional, came out with a one day notice, top quality pictures, and very competitive price. I would highly recommend Rowell for any pictures needed, real estate, events, what ever your needs are! My needs were pictures of a home that I listed as a real estate professional. Words are just not enough to say how happy I was with the quality and timeliness!
- Heidi H.
"Working with Rowell for my senior photo shoot was amazing! The time spent shooting was very productive, resulting with an abundance of beautiful shots that I was very pleased with, which almost made choosing a final shot difficult on my part. Rowell was more than eager to go through any challenge just to get a great shot and communicating with him is always breezy.
I highly recommend him, he is quite the professional and I'll be sure to work with him again!"
- Alexa D.
"I had the IMMENSE pleasure in working with Rowell during an impromptu shoot with my dog and I. As one might guess, a 1 1/2 year old English Bulldog's attention span and willingness to sit still posed quite a challenge. Nonetheless, a challenge openly accepted by this gifted shooter! The photos came out superb! His uncanny ability to canvas one-of-a-kind shots surfaced effortlessly as he directed the scene all the while making the session entirely fun. I didn't stop there! The edits were flawless providing already perfect pictures with the provision of a consciously amount of tasteful post-processing. Highly HIGHLY recommended!!
Pictures should be remembered for a lifetime. Allow him to capture your special moments one shot at a time!"
- Neal S.
"Rowell's incredible passion and love for photography shows in brilliance of his work. He is the only photographer that has the ability to shoot ANYTHING without any reservations; he shoots regularly for my client, singer/songwriter Rocky Sandoval. The ultimate professional and even better person, I truly enjoy his work ethic and his attention to detail."
- Matt G.
"Amazing Photographer! My family has chosen to work with Rowell Ducay of Haze Gray Pixels to capture our family's most precious moments: From my husband and I's fall engagement shoot, to our springtime maternity shoot, and our summertime newborn shoot of our first born daughter. We love working with him because he always makes us feel so comfortable and our shoots are always so much fun! He is always able to capture those naturally beautiful moments and produces such breathtakingly beautiful photos. His professionalism is outstanding and his lightning quick turn-around time always surprises me! We are anxious to book another shoot with Haze Gray Pixels and highly reccomend him to all of our family and friends! "
