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!

Rebecca+Jackson|Byron’s South End Wedding

2014-11-20_0056

Rebecca + Jackson are two of the sweetest people I have ever met. Their love and admiration for each other is undeniable. I knew at our first meeting that I wanted to be a part of their wedding. They were so sweet and laid back and so excited to become husband and wife. Somehow Rebecca convinced Jackson, a huge football fan, to get married during football season… She loves everything fall and he obviously loves her and was willing to do anything to make her happy. Their wedding day was perfect from beginning to end. I cannot even put into words how beautiful it was. Everything about this wedding was absolutely breathtaking!! Anne, with Favor Me Events, did such an AMAZING job making Rebecca’s vision come to life. The color pallet, the rustic tables, the stunning florals, the cake, the ambiance, the beautiful couple, the venue… I mean I can’t even tell you how stunning and elegant everything looked. The day was truly amazing and I couldn’t be happier for this super sweet couple. Here are some of my favorite images from their lovely day!

The Cavanagh Family – Charlotte Family Photographer

2014-10-21_0001

I absolutely love when families come back year after year. I get to watch the babies grow into beautiful children and meet the new additions to their family. We become friends. We follow each other on Facebook and Instagram and I get a little peek into their lives throughout the year. Meet the Cavanagh family. They are seriously the best. They trusted me with this new location – I was obsessed with the pretty yellow flowers that were in bloom! What I didn’t know was there were millions of mosquitos that swarmed us the entire session. They didn’t let the bugs phase them at all. They played, they smiled, they enjoyed their family time and I snapped away as we all got eaten by hundreds of mosquitos… I absolutely love some of these images of this sweet family just being themselves walking the greenway.

Separk Mansion Bridals – Rebecca

2014-10-08_0001

I’ve been holding these GORGEOUS bridals hostage for way too long. Rebecca and Jackson were married over the weekend at Byron’s South End. Their wedding was absolutely breathtaking – I’ll be sharing a very long blog post the second I get their images edited!  For now I will share some of my favorites from her bridal session we did a couple months ago at the Separk Mansion.
