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!

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

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.

The Key Family – PART I – {Lake Norman Family Photographer}

©Grace Hill Photography-3

I’m pretty obsessed with this sweet family. Every time we have a session it’s always fun and creative. I get to capture this family exactly as they are.  The pictures don’t have to be perfect. Not everyone has to be looking at the camera and smiling. We just hang out and I get to capture this family being themselves and I LOVE every second of it. At their last session we played with toys, made breakfast in PJ’s and it SNOWED – just a little bit – but it was super cool for pic’s {see their last session HERE}. This session it definitely didn’t snow. It’ was hot and muggy but we made the best of it and ended up having an amazing time!! I’m splitting this session up into two parts because there are waaaay too many images to make just one post. Lindsay wanted some family pictures but also had this vision of an outdoor pillow fight in pretty sunlight – this will be part II. So here is how our session began….

Stephanie and Matt are such a sweet couple. They love each other… like a lot… and they don’t try to hide it. Their wedding day was beautiful. Filled with sunshine, love, laughter, lots of dancing and celebrating with family and friends.  It really was the perfect day. Their ceremony was held at Belk Chapel and reception was at The Big Chill. Thank you Stephanie + Matt for asking me to be such big part of your wedding day! I loved capturing every second – xo

Kristin + Justin – Childress Vineyards Wedding {Charlotte Wedding Photographer}

©Grace Hill Photography-192

Kristin and Justin were married at the lovely Childress Vineyards in May. This venue was simply gorgeous. I’m a huge fan of outdoor weddings and this one was one of my favorites! We were surrounded by vineyards, nature and overcast skies. There was a thunder storm chasing us the entire day…. just as the ceremony was about to begin the rain stopped and a cool breeze welcomed the guests. Kristin and Justin said their I do’s and partied the night away with family and friends. I was so lucky to be a part of such a beautiful wedding. Here are some of my favorites from their special day!
