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?
For a full day of coverage, my prices start from £1650 for eight hours, but I also offer micro weddings based on an hourly rate. 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!
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.
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.
Grace Elizabeth was one of my non-negotiables when it came to our wedding. I stumbled across her pictures on Instagram and from that moment I knew that was exactly how I wanted our day to be captured. She has some serious talent not only with taking amazing photos but making you feel so comfortable and that, I believe, is how she is able to produce her outstanding pictures. On the wedding day itself I felt like I had my friend with me getting ready and she was a really calming presence for me. I watched her as she got all my items together for a photo and said to her "I wish people could see all the work you put into taking these". So many of our guests said how much they loved Grace, that she wasn't pushy and always having a camera in your face. Some of our favourite photos are where people are unaware it's been taken. She can see the little moments just as much as the big ones. So if you are thinking of using Grace as your photographer, just do it. It was the best decision we made and now have the best, timeless, real photographs to remember our day forever. Thank you for being such an important part of our day Grace. Mr and Mrs Smiley xx
I am honestly struggling to find the words to properly convey how amazing Grace has been through our wedding journey. Like so many couples we postponed our wedding from 2020 and Grace handled our to-and-fro on dates with patience and positivity. She was always on hand to offer advice ahead of the day and I've lost track of the number of hilariously rambling voice notes we sent each other because I was too busy with work (and general lack of organisation) to sort a proper catch up in working hours, another thing Grace took in her stride like an absolute champ. From a last minute shoot with my parents last year, to our engagement shoot in April, to the actual wedding this weekend, Grace has been an absolute dream to work with and has become a true friend over the last few years. Neither of us is really comfortable with having our photo taken but Grace has this amazing way of putting everyone at ease which, judging by our preview photos (delivered in less than 24h!) gives stunning results. We've had so many comments from friends and family about how lovely and professional Grace was for the wedding and we cannot wait to see all the rest of the photos from the day. If anyone is in any doubt about whether they should book Grace, shove that doubt right out of your mind. Getting Grace involved was worth every single penny and we cannot recommend her highly enough, I'm sure she'll be totally booked up in Devon in no time, so get in there quickly! Thank you Grace, thank you, thank you, thank you! Sophie and Jamie x
