Grace Hill Photography bio picture
  • Hello!

    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 walking my sweet pups {Otis the pug and Ziggy the beagle}, enjoying life with my handsome hubby, 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 I'd love to hear from you.

Kelli – Bridals {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

Kelli and Adam were married last month at Saratoga Springs – a GORGEOUS wedding venue just outside of Charlotte. I’m so excited to share to some of Kelli’s lovely bridals taken at Saratoga Springs last the fall. It’s was a bit overcast and rainy but that didn’t stop us!! Kelli was stunning in her wedding dress. She didn’t let the weather take the fun out of her session. Her smile and beautiful personality can brighten up any cloudy day. Here are some of my faves! Kelli you are beautiful!!

Robin + Jonathan – Married! {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

I’ve been waiting for months for Robin + Jonathan’s wedding day. From the moment I met them at their engagement session I knew we would be friends. Robin’s smile just brings happiness to my heart and the way Jonathan loves her makes my heart swell even more. I get so lucky with each and every couple I photograph. They are so beautiful inside and out and have so much love and respect for one another. Robin and Jonathan are one of those couples you just know their love will last a lifetime. They will grow old together and love each other every single day of their lives. I was honored to be part of such a special wedding. Here are some of my faves from Robin and Jonathan’s big day!

Katie + Dan – Engaged! {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

I’m so looking forward to Katie + Dan’s wedding at Johnson Carriage House & Meadows this fall. Katie is just beautiful… inside and out. She had me smiling during our entire session with her bubbly personality and sweet giggles. These two are so meant to be. I just loved their laughter and interaction. They even brought their furry child, Perry, along for some of the pictures. Here are some of my favorites from their session at Jetton Park.

Samantha + Curtis – Married! {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

©Grace Hill Photography-61

I love it when I meet a couple and instantly know their love will last forever… meet Samantha + Curtis. These two are simply amazing and are the definition of love and happiness. Curtis and I use to work together before I took the leap of faith to focus photography full time. Before I left, he asked me if I would photograph his wedding. I happily agreed and that was that. One year went by, I was slammed with work, travel, was pregnant with my first child and got a text from Curtis asking if I was still available for his wedding. My heart sank. I was available but knew that I would have a one month old and was scared to death to leave her for the first time. We set up a meeting in December so that I could meet Samantha, learn all about their wedding day and signed the contract. When I left the meeting that day I was excited. I was excited to be a part of their wedding day because I could just feel the love and happiness they had for each other. Their wedding day finally came and it was absolutely perfect. The sun was shining and it was a warm February day. Their day was filled with so much emotion, so much love, lots of laughter and some really amazing dance moves! Samantha’s smile and laugh can brighten up any room. She was such a beautiful bride. I’m so excited to share some images from Sam + Curtis’s day. Enjoy!

Samantha + Kyle – Married! {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

Oh Sam + Kyle – I just love you guys!!! These two are so awesome. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful wedding to end my 2013 season! Sam + Kyle are sooo much fun and are such a gorgeous couple – inside and out. Their wedding day was absolutely stunning… lots of sunshine, a nice cool breeze, lots of intimate details, two lovely, affectionate people who are so meant to be celebrating their love with family and friends. The ceremony was held in a beautiful Catholic church and their reception was held at Bonterra –  a beautiful restaurant in downtown Charlotte. So much love, so much laughter and lots of awesome dance moves made this wedding so perfect. I’m so excited to share these images of their beautiful day. I have SOOOO MANY favorites so I will apologize for all the pictures!
