How early should I enquire with you?
Most of my couples enquire between three to twelve months ahead of their wedding day. I typically book out 18 months ahead at most!
What do you charge?
I do things a little differently, in that I don't offer set packages! I usually have a chat with each of my couples to work out what I can tailor and recommend to them, meaning you can book as little or as much coverage as you might need!
How long have you been a photographer?
I shot my first wedding when I was just 17 years old, which was almost ten years ago now! (How time flies!) I've been doing this as my full time job for the last three years, and I LOVE it!
Do you work outside of Devon and Cornwall?
ABSOLUTELY! I cover the entirety of the U.K., and further afield too! Nowhere is too far!
What do you love most about what you do?
I LIVE for documenting real, authentic moments. Getting under the skin of my clients, breaking down the barriers they put up to the world, and helping them open their lives to me is so important to me. The most beautiful moments are the intimate ones. The silent ones. I strive to document the things that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. Moreover, I aspire for each frame to be viewed as if a tiny patchwork piece; individually holding it’s own, but equally part of a bigger picture. I believe that everything in life is linked, both physically and spiritually, and that everything happens for a reason. I hope for the moments I document to have the nostalgic effect of taking you back to certain conversations, smells or feelings. I endeavour for the photographs I take to age beautifully, and purposefully. My job is so much more than a job. It's my life, and I just love what I do.
Are you insured?
Yes indeed! Which is probably good because I will usually be found climbing on inanimate objects to get the best shots (spoiler alert, I am 5ft tall, but don't let that dissuade you!)
Grace is INCREDIBLE! We didn't have much chance to get to know Grace ahead of our micro wedding in November 2020, as we decided to do it fairly last minute, however we had calls with her and a facetime chat prior to the wedding and we felt so comfortable with her. Grace really put us and our family at ease and got some lovely photos of us all, really capturing the love and joy of the day. Our day overran and Grace stayed later with us, meaning we didn't feel rushed and she could get some really lovely photos of the speeches, which we will treasure for years to come. I love Grace's photography style, natural with a little something extra... Her photographs of our day are amazing. For anyone thinking of booking Grace, DO IT. Thank you Grace, Amie and Andrew x
If you are looking for a photographer then look no further! Grace has been the kindest, most helpful and flexible photographer throughout our somewhat uncertain wedding journey and the photos we have to show for it are literally amazing! Grace stepped in when we first moved our wedding date due to Covid and our original photographer couldn't do our new date. We then had to change our plans again when it was clear we couldn't have our "big" wedding and decided to split our time with Grace into two... a small intimate ceremony in September followed by a big reception in April. Grace made an epic journey just to shoot our one hour ceremony and we couldn't be more grateful having received the incredible photos she managed to take. It's like she was in two places at once capturing some really special moments from various positions. I look at the photos pretty much daily, they bring us such happiness and joy. We once again had to change our plans and have indefinitely postponed our big reception... Grace was once again understanding and very helpful with sorting this out. Grace... there was so much uncertainty surrounding our wedding plans but one thing we know for certain is we are SO pleased we were recommended you and we can't thank you enough for how wonderful you have been throughout this journey and the beautiful photos we have of our special day.
When Stephen and I got engaged in April 2019 it was full steam ahead to plan our dream wedding for summer 2020. With so many different aspects of a wedding to think about, we already had Grace in our minds to photograph our wedding after she had photographed my sisters back in 2018 - and we were so impressed! When we contacted Grace and she said she was available we were over the moon and knew that we could put all of our trust into her to capture our special day. Grace kept in contact with us regularly throughout the months leading up to the wedding and was always a text away if we ever needed her. When COVID hit, all of our wedding plans became uncertain and even 2 weeks prior to the wedding we weren’t sure whether it could go ahead. Grace was totally relaxed throughout the situation and helped put our minds at ease given the circumstances. On the day Grace easily and calmly adjusted to any situation thrown at her. She interacted with our family and friends and ensured that we all felt comfortable and had lots of fun! We cannot recommend Grace enough if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding or lifestyle shoot, and we will definitely be contacting her for any photography in the future! We would like to say a huge thank you to Grace from the bottom of our hearts for her love, support, kindness, patience and of course amazing photography skills to capture our special day!
We can’t recommend Grace highly enough. From our first chat, to our wedding day, and then to her hand delivering our photos in a beautifully presented box, Grace was professional throughout, but also wonderfully personable and a genuine, caring person. Our wedding day was intimate and simple, yet Grace managed to brilliantly capture and showcase all the small details and those special moments with our family and friends that we will treasure forever, including the more candid shots that we were after. We are so very happy with the photographs that Grace has produced, and we couldn’t recommend her more to those looking for a photographer. It’s strange to think – we hired Grace to be our photographer, but by the end, she felt like a friend.
I can't recommend Grace highly enough – it's quite hard to get across in such a small review how good your photographer is, and having read through so many reviews ourselves when picking Grace, we know how difficult it is to distinguish between photographers. Let us make it easier – check if Grace is available first – then read through other reviews if she isn't! Grace is not only a hugely talented photographer, she's a genuine, kind hearted person with a passion for her work that comes through in each of her photos. Looking for a wedding photographer was a daunting process, we'd agreed that photographs were one of the most important parts of our wedding as we had friends and family travelling in from all over and we wanted to capture what we hoped would be an amazing day with them all. After perusing Grace's website she instantly went to the top of our list and we were so pleased when she confirmed she was available. All of the communications we had with Grace were relaxed and informal which helped us to build up a good rapport with her before we even met in person and this was solidified when we met for our Engagement shoot. After a few shots in front of the Brighton Pier and on the pebble beach, we knew that we had found a gem when Grace tentatively suggested taking photos on some of the pier's rides – cue a hilarious 10 minutes on the merry-go-round and some brilliantly colourful snaps. We weren't quite brave enough to take on the Log Flume though! On the big day, Grace was a joy to work with, coming to the fore when needed for group shots and merging into the background when appropriate to take candid photos of the quiet moments between the guests and us. As with any Wedding Day there was lots of emotion and Grace really captured this perfectly. She stayed around for the dance floor moments too which we thoroughly recommend doing – there are some fantastic shots of this time! Looking back through our wedding photos we can really feel the story of our day and this is all down to Grace's intuition and talent. Thank you Grace for all your hard work in the build up to our Wedding and on the day and obviously for the incredible photos you took – something we will cherish for a lifetime.
