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

...a twenty-something UK based alternative wedding, destination wedding, elopement and lifestyle photographer with 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 often also work in Suffolk, Norfolk, and North Devon. Along with a heart of wanderlust and a sense of adventure, I adore travelling anywhere and everywhere - so if you're planning a destination wedding or elopement - 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 and years to come!

In terms of packages, I offer totally tailored wedding packages, elopement and destination wedding coverage, and plenty of lifestyle packages. No two weddings are the same, so I decided to be a little different in that I don’t have a set price list and instead tailor everything to you! Even if my lifestyle sessions don’t quite work for you, I can always create something bespoke!

 

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 let's be real, I like to be more than just a wedding photographer, so we will probably end up becoming friends! I love to get involved with weddings, and I promise to throw myself fully into your wedding. I am the kind of photographer you can text if you're struggling with decor ideas, or need a plus one for your suit/dress/outfit fitting, and I even make a great dance partner when your afterparty is in full swing! (I can’t comment on quite how good my dancing will be though!)

If you had to describe me, I would say I am like a chameleon... Why? Well, I’m 5ft tall and love to blend into my surroundings! This means I can notice and document moments that would've otherwise gone unseen, but at the same time, I can still organise a big wedding party for those formal photos!

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!

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. 

If you love those things too, and you're looking for someone as adventurous as you are, please get in touch via the contact form below. Alternatively, you can email hello@photographybygrace.co.uk.

I'll always get back to you within 24 hours - so keep an eye on your inbox (and check your spam/junkmail just in case, too!)
