Small Girl, Big Dreams

Well Hello There!

I'm Grace Elizabeth, a five foot tall, dungaree wearing, tattoo-collecting, tea-drinking wedding and lifestyle photographer, and I've been photographing weddings for 12 years this year! When I'm not working I prioritise family time with my long-term boyfriend and my two rescue dogs Floyd and Darla, or I'm probably learning a new hobby. Originally an Essex girl, I moved to North Devon as a teenager and immediately fell in love with the area, and despite moving around I always gravitated back to the coast. I moved back to Devon permanently in 2021 and the rest has been history!

Love is really the centre point of what I do. I feel that it is what connects us as humans. Most importantly, it fuels my purpose in life: to document love stories. So, here's a little insight into me and my world.

The Personal Side

Live what you love.

I am a super dedicated, passionate, spiritual and emotional person (unsurprisingly I'm a water sign!), and my personality, beliefs and view of the world have greatly been impacted by the incredible people that I have met along the way.

When I'm not working, I'm probably exploring, hanging out with my rescue dogs Floyd and Darla, or dreaming of my next big idea. At the moment those ideas mean learning to surf and mountain bike. I'm fuelled by countless cups of tea (I'll take mine with oat milk, no sugar!), avocado toast, chocolate, and I'll never turn down a bourbon biscuit. I express my personality through the tattoos I collect, my colourful dungarees, and my dedication to Blundstones (they're the new Docs, I swear!). I'm also a self confessed plant lady - I think I have more plants than I have friends... I'm not sure if that's a good thing!

I adore long conversations with likeminded people, watching the sun set and turn into stars, and driving at night singing along to loud music and laughing uncontrollably. Most importantly I love making people feel happy. We all need more happiness in the world, and if I can share a little with you, then I will.


Moved from Essex to Devon

Who knew that this would be such a life-changing move! This is where it all began...

Met my boyfriend Jack

At just aged 16 whilst studying my A Levels in Devon, I met my boyfriend Jack. Or rather, I was quite literally set up with him by some of my closest friends, who eagerly punched my phone number into his phone and vice versa, and demanded we went on a date. Well, they were matchmakers, because Jack and I have been together now since 2012.


Shot my first wedding in Devon

One of the same friends who set me up with Jack also managed to land me my first wedding! Whilst studying my A Levels in Photography, I took it on, and fell in love with it. The rest was history!

Moved back to Essex and started my photography degree

I said my last goodbyes, and moved away from Devon in the summer, commencing what would be many years of a long distance relationship. In the autumn, I started my Foundation Degree in Creative and Editorial Photography. It wasn't an easy journey, and I had to do my second year from home, but it remains one of my biggest achievements!

february - june

Started my business and finished my Degree!

After finishing my two year Foundation degree in Creative and Editorial Photography, I went on to get my full BA Hons in Photography through Essex University. In the February of my last year, I went self employed and officially started my business! I later graduated with a First Class Honours degree!

Quit my job and went full time!

In 2018, after working at Essex University, I took the leap to being a full time photographer, which is in equal measure one of the most terrifying yet exciting things I've ever done! I was only 23 at the time! I've never looked back and I LOVE my job more than anything, and here I am today!


Moved back to Devon from Essex, and shot 45 weddings in six months

In June 2021, mid pandemic, Jack and I stumbled across finding our first home together in North Devon. Thus I spent March to September not only preparing to move 250 miles away, but photographing 45 weddings in six months! In November 2021 I finally moved back to North Devon where I've been ever since!

I love storytelling, and sharing the thoughts that occupy my mind.

The Professional Stuff

My ethos and style

Defining your style as a creative is really hard, because it's difficult to put yourself into a box...

I am nothing other than a hopeless romantic. I find beauty in everything, from the littlest things to the biggest things, and I am a believer that we all have the ability to leave the world in a better place than it began. My drive in life is to learn from others, to shape myself as a better human. I feel so grateful that my job allows me to meet a multitude of humans, from all corners of the world. It is our diversity that makes us so wonderful, and I relish in our differences.

I live for documenting real, authentic moments. Getting under the skin of my clients, and breaking down the barriers they put up to the world, is critical to me. The most beautiful moments are the silent, intimate ones, but also the ones filled with so boundless joy. I strive to document the moments 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.
