Why HELLO THERE! I'M GRACE Elizabeth...

grace-elizabeth-colchester-essex-suffolk-devon-norfolk-wedding-lifestyle-photographer.jpg

...a twenty-something, five-foot-tall UK-based alternative wedding, lifestyle and business branding photographer. I’ve a love for rolling tides, foggy mornings, sad playlists, quiet moments, adventuring with no sense of direction, windswept hair, cosy blankets, lace dresses, and real moments.

Although I am based in Colchester, Essex, I love exploring, so I decided to include travel with all of my wedding photography packages! You’ll often find me working in North Devon, Suffolk, Norfolk and Kent, my little car and I go anywhere and everywhere! 

Along with a heart of wanderlust and a sense of adventure, I also adore travelling - so if you're planning a destination wedding or elopement - please do get in touch!

 

AUTHENTIC, STORY-TELLING PHOTOGRAPHY

Natural and informal is my kind of thing, not awkward, staged and stuffy. I live for documenting real, authentic moments; the kind you will look back on for years to come. I hope that each frame can be viewed as if a tiny patchwork piece, ultimately helping you to build a bigger picture of how your wedding or session unfolded. I aspire for images 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.

In terms of wedding photography, I offer totally tailored wedding packages, elopement and destination wedding coverage, as no two weddings are the same! I also offer plenty of set lifestyle packages, and I even offer business and branding photography for small businesses!

 

RELAXED FROM THE OUTSET

I am super relaxed, and, more often than not, I get asked if I am actually a friend of my couples! Usually, I am not, although by the time your wedding or session comes around, it often feels that way, and I am regularly introduced by my clients as if I am an old friend!

I love to get involved with weddings, and I promise to throw myself fully into your wedding. don’t mind helping to carry things, can help you tie a tie, or button up a wedding dress, and I’ve even climbed narrow spider-infested staircases to reach venue roofs, and been on people’s shoulders just to get a good group shot - it’s all part of being a part of the day! I’m the kind of photographer you can text if you're struggling with decor ideas, or need a plus one for your outfit fitting, and I even make a great dance partner when your afterparty is in full swing… although I can’t comment on quite how good my ‘dancing’ will be!

If you want to, please feel free to find out more about me and how I shoot, or you can read some reviews about me, otherwise, there are some quick links below!

You almost disappeared into the fabric of the day. You had an eye for capturing the relaxed magic people only exude when they are most unaware.

KIND WORDS…

We initially met Grace when she took photos of our, then, newborn daughter, Violet.

When we started planning our wedding, it didn’t need any discussion, we were having Grace!

It was so special having Grace as our wedding photographer. We felt completely relaxed with full trust as we absolutely knew she would smash it and that she did.

We were overwhelmed with our photos. They document the day perfectly from prep to first dance with moments we may have otherwise forgotten about. She captured every emotion and the happiness and love that surrounded us. It felt like a friend taking photos (I swear I saw her well up during the ceremony haha).

Her communication throughout is wonderful. Her professional yet quirky outlook is something I adore. And can I mention her absolute goals of packaging - so unique and perfect (I almost cried...again!)

I can’t wait for the next joyous and pivotal moment in our lives that can be documented by her!

Joe + Tiffany

CONTACT GRACE ELIZABETH

I am a believer in getting up early to watch the sunrise and I believe in noticing every sunset. I believe in staying up late to study the stars on clear nights, and looking at shapes in the clouds on warm summer days. I like to take the road less travelled, rather than the easy route, because who knows what you'll uncover on those unexpected journeys. I believe in creating memories and throwing caution to the wind. And finally, I believe in collecting experiences, and not things.
