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!

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.

Sara + John – Trump National Golf Club Wedding

©Grace Hill Photography-296

Sara + John were married at Trump National Golf Club (formerly The Point) last month. Everything was absolutely beautiful! The florals, the dress, the venue and of course the lovely bride. I know I say this all the time but I really love my job. Documenting a couples love story and watching them become husband and wife is not something you get to do everyday. I’m so lucky to call Sara + John good friends. I think I was one of the first people to actually see the ring before John proposed. He was so excited to ask Sara to be his wife and even more excited for this day to come. I seriously can’t think of a sweeter couple and couldn’t be happier for these two love birds. They are truly, madly, deeply in love and I’m so thankful I was such a big part of their special day. Here are some of my favorites from their amazing day!

Sara + John, I wish you both a lifetime filled with lots of love and happiness!! xoxo

The Lukens Family – Charlotte Family Photographer

2014-10-03_0009

I’ve been photographing this gorgeous family for a couple years now. I absolutely adore them and their laid back vibe. I’ve watched them grow from a family of three to a family of four and have LOVED watching these beautiful babies grow over the years. I will admit that sometimes it’s tough photographing families with small children…. The last thing they want to do is sit still and smile for the camera. They would rather run free and roll around in the grass… so that’s exactly what we did… we ran, we played we explored and got some really sweet images along the way. Here are some of my favorites
