Grace Hill Photography bio picture
  • Hi there!

    Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my blog! Here you can learn a little about me, my style and find some of my most recent work.

    I live in Charlotte, NC and specialize in lifestyle & wedding photography.

    I fell in love with photography when I was in high school but didn't follow my dream of becoming a photographer until I graduated college. My husband bought me a "fancy" camera right after we were married and I couldn't put it down. Through my adorable nieces and nephews, families, children and couples in love I found my passion of telling stories through pictures and producing artistic pictures that make you feel.

    I am a huge fan of natural light. While shooting, I try to capture the true emotions that are shared between my subjects when they are just being themselves and forget they are being photographed. I love capturing the real natural moments, to me, that's what makes a beautiful photograph.

    When I'm not behind the lens you can find me enjoying life with my baby girl and handsome hubby, walking my sweet pups {Otis the pug and Ziggy the beagle}, traveling to a sandy beach or snow covered mountain side and spending quality time with friends and family. I love to laugh and try to see the good in every situation.

    I'm so excited that you have stopped by, and I truly hope that that our paths cross soon. I would love to hear from you, so if you are interested in booking a photo shoot or a wedding please fill out the contact info - can't wait to meet you!

Sara + John – Lake Norman Engagement Session {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

2014-08-19_0070

OMG I absolutely adore this engagement session… the warm beautiful light, the sweet, fun, loving couple and the gorgeous sunset we had made for the perfect evening… oh and did I mention it was on Lake Norman, one of my favorite places to be when I’m not behind the camera. You might recognize Sara and John from their fall engagement session last year. Instead of a bridal session Sara wanted a fall AND summer engagement pictures and since I love engagement sessions I was totally up for it. We met out on the lake then went to Trump National where they are getting married next month. I had so many favorites from this session so sorry for the picture overload – Enjoy!

Anna + Robert – Overmountain Vineyards Wedding

©Grace Hill Photography-310

I can’t say enough about this lovely couple and amazing wedding venue. When Anna contacted me and told me she was getting married at Overmountain Vineyards I was beyond excited. I absolutely LOVE outdoor weddings. There is just something about the sunlight shining on your face, breeze blowing through your hair and a pretty mountain view on a wedding day. Anna and Robby had just that, a beautiful summer, vineyard wedding. The laid back and chill setting was just my style. They had yard games for guests, drinks and appetizers passed around before the ceremony and huge Italian dinner. I couldn’t help but notice all happiness and love everyone shared while celebrating Anna and Robby. There was so much laughter, sweet personal touches, dancing and celebrating. I had so much fun documenting every moment and am so thankful I was such a big part of such a special day.

Congratulations Anna + Robby! I wish you both a lifetime filled with love and happiness! xo

Ryder {Lake Norman Children’s Photographer}

Last month I took some pictures of my dear friend Hayley and her precious little boy Ryder. We have been friends since college, watched each other walk down the aisle and now we both have babies! Hayley has a beautiful soul and I’m so lucky to have her in my life. Here is some sweetness I captured during our evening together.

Jillian + Hunter – Married! {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

©Grace Hill Photography-201

Jillian and Hunter are such a beautiful couple. I didn’t get meet these two until their wedding…. Honestly, I was a little nervous because getting to know a couple before the wedding day is really important to me. They don’t live in Charlotte so we didn’t meet and we didn’t have an engagement session. I’m so happy to say that I REALLY lucked out!! Hunter and Jillian are AWESOME!! They are two of the sweetest, most kind hearted people I have ever met. They are so in love and so meant to be. I had so much fun getting to know them, their family and their wedding party. We laughed a lot. They danced a lot. They celebrated with family and friends and I got to capture all the love and fun they had. I love my job!!

Lindsay + Tyler – Key Family – PART II – {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

©Grace Hill Photography-89

So this is Part II of the Key Family  {Check out Part I HERE} The boys were over the heat and pictures so we decided to save the pillow fight for Lindsay and Tyler… and I’m so glad we did. These two are so full of life and SO MADLY IN LOVE. I had so much fun photographing this pillow fight. There was no holding back. There were feathers EVERYWHERE. After abut 10 minutes of pounding each other with pillows they kissed and made up. This session will never be forgotten and is definitely one of my favorites to date.
