Best of 2018 | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

What an absolute year 2018 was. It was the year I went from doing photography on the side, to going fully self employed, and for that, I am so very grateful. 2018 gave me the opportunity to photograph the most amazing weddings and lifestyle sessions, and to meet so many amazing people. It was a year full of love, I started the #GoldDustProject, I photographed quite a few charity events and I documented a few eco friendly vegan events too. So here it is, a round up of the best moments of 2018!

Freespirited Bohemian Beach Maternity Session in Kent | Jess + Kerion | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Jess is such a special friend to me. I remember when she announced she was pregnant in April with a WhatsApp message that went something along the lines of ‘So, Grace, would you ever do my maternity photos?’ of course she knew I would say yes, but I had no clue that she was literally asking me to do them, in October of this year, because she was pregnant! ‘Is this your way of telling me you’re pregnant?!’ I asked, hesitantly. ‘Well, yes!’ She exclaimed, and honestly I have been just as excited as them both for this little baby’s arrival!

Cooper's Beach Newborn Session | Grace Elizabeth | Alternative Wedding Photographer, Colchester, Essex

Amy was quite heavily pregnant at the time, and as the couple didn't want to do an engagement session, I offered to do newborn photographs instead! You could really tell that their family dynamic was so important to them, especially with son Hudson (who was super excited about having a little sibling!), so I was more than happy to do this instead!

The Ciantar's Family Session at Crow Point, North Devon | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I loved photographing these guys, and it was the perfect place to let off some steam for their eldest son and their pup too! It was windy but warm, one of those stormy summer evenings, and it was such a blast getting to know them and exploring the area more than I had done before!

Tommy's Family Session on a North Devon Farm | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Allow me to introduce you to two of my lovely and oldest friends, Lauren and Dylan. Lauren, Dylan and I go way back, in fact, we all went to school together when I lived in Devon! Since then, the two have fallen in love, are currently engaged to be married, and have two absolutely beautiful little ones, Kaylah and Tommy.

There is actually a bit of a funny story towards me finding out Lauren was pregnant again with Tommy...

Flossie's Family Session at Arger Fen, Suffolk | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Katie and Jono had the perfect little girl, Flossie, and what a cutie she is (you'll get to see her in a minute!) But sadly, her first few months on the planet were met with illness, meaning that the family didn't have a chance to do those family portraits they envisioned in the early days. Thankfully, Flossie soon became a lot better, so we headed to the beautiful Arger Fen on the Essex and Suffolk border for their family photographs when she turned around six months old.

The Gold Dust Project - Chapter Two - Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

After sharing a few images from the project over on Instagram and Facebook, I received the most incredible response from so many people. Whether the comments were from those who had taken part, those who now wanted to take part having seen the photos, or people from across the world who follow me - there was an absolute buzz of positivity! For that, I am so grateful.

But what was so crazy you ask? Well, on February 21st, I received a super special enquiry in my Facebook page inbox..!
