Photographic Artist

Hi, I’m Grace. A photographer loving life so long as my photos mean something to someone.

I love…

One of my biggest loves is love. I really want to celebrate it with you. I want to capture all that big love so you can look back and share your day with all your loved ones forever. Now you may understand why I love wedding photography so much.


The difference…

Sometimes the difference is all in genuinity. I want to capture pure happiness without you being aware. If you’re aware that often results in cheese factor…let’s not go there! I’ve always had a little bit of knack for organising people in a way in which they are totally unaware….so beware!

Traditionally boring photos don’t have to be boring. I love to capture those traditional moments for nana’s mantel…yet combined with awesome natural aesthetics.

My services include…

A pre-wedding shoot is integral in my opinion. I provide this free of charge as it helps both myself understand you, as well as an opportunity to teach you a few little tips for the big day which also helps you. This opportunity doubles as a great little portrait session.

My clients receive ALL of their photos which provides them with every one of their sentimental memories to keep forever (where most photographers select their own favourites; potentially overlooking special moments in the eyes of their client).

If you would like to talk about your ideas with me, please shoot me through an email and I will be sure to contact you straight back!

Lots of Love,
Grace xx

All our love, Jo and Chris"

"Grace was a fantastic addition to our corporate function. She was highly professional and charismatic and made all of our guests feel at ease in her presence. She did not miss a single important moment. I would highly recommend Grace for any function, she would positively compliment any group of people adding that extra spark to your function."

"Thank you so much Grace (and Julian) for being part of our big day. We love how fun you made our photo shoot - even if we weren't so great at serious faces you captured us just perfectly. Julian you have a real talent for chiffon tossing! We had so much fun and you were both a big contributor to that. Thank you for everything."

"Dear Grace and Julian, we LOVE our photos thank you so much for being so relaxed and easy going. You were a pleasure to deal with and we love how relaxed you made us feel even though we generally don't like having our photos taken! We love our album too and appreciate your attention to detail. We look forward to referring you guys to our friends and family"

"Grace, I love how you bring people's characters to the picture. You show real emotions, nothing is staged, everything is in the moment. That is precisely what you do best. You understand the nature of what you are shooting and you present it in it's best light"

"Grace blew me away right from our very first phone call. She is extremely professional in everything that she does and has a very natural way of making you feel comfortable and at ease behind the camera. Grace was an absolute delight to work with pre and post wedding and most importantly during our wedding, Ian and I felt like she was there as our friend. Grace's photographs from our wedding are beyond stunning, she really captured the beauty of our venue and the personalities of us and our guests. Grace managed to capture intimate and beautiful moments of ourselves and our guests without us even realising she was there. We couldn't have picked a more perfect photographer and we can't thank Grace enough for the incredible moments she captured for us!"
