"Award-winning 2019 Belle Lumiere Emerging Film Photographer of the Year"
I’ve always photographed what I love, and for me, that has been people. People and their stories are extraordinary. My background and training years in photography started in college, continued in Africa, and in 2012 I started shooting weddings. I love the adventure of a wedding day; the unpredictable moments of raw emotion as well as beautiful attention to detail and design that all reflect one special couple. I feel so blessed to document images that will be preserved in the hearts of people for years to come. My approach is to make something beautiful that tells your story in a natural and effortless way, using a fine art, elegant style.
I love outdoor ceremonies, candlelight dinners, summer boat rides + understated elegance. I’m inspired by travel, cultures, design and nature. Most of all, I believe in God and seek to honor Him in all that I do and make a positive impact through my work.

I cannot think of a better woman to entrust with documenting life’s meaningful events. Gracie brings such kindness and ease, and natural talent! Her eye for beauty and keen sense of people make for an unbeatable combination. As an event stylist myself, I have seen many wedding photographers approach the day with an autopilot checklist, but Gracie approaches as a passionate artist and documentarian. My husband and I are still blessed by our wedding photographs, and we would recommend her with the highest thumbs up we could possibly give.
Gracie was an absolute joy to work with. We booked her to shoot our wedding and were blown away by how professional yet amicable she was. We met with her months before the wedding for a brief introduction and for her to get an idea of the aesthetic we were going for. We had looked at her portfolio before meeting with her and just fell in love with her photos. Our first impression was that this was a beautifully talented young woman who just exudes positivity and joy. She is just so lovely and personable. Our favorite thing about her is how she is able to develop a relationship with her clients that extends beyond just business. Our entire wedding day, we felt as if we have known her for years and years. She provided great direction and conversation in between takes and it honestly felt like we were being photographed by a dear friend. She clearly has a passion for her work and knew all of the most flattering angles to help us capture our special day in the most beautiful way. If you are looking for a photographer to shoot your wedding, we would HIGHLY recommend Gracie. We are so happy we trusted her with our wedding and know that we will treasure the moments she captured for us for years and years to come.
I would absolutely recommend Gracie to anyone! She is very easy-going, listens intently, and has so much passion for what she does. And she is the kindest soul! It is so apparent that Gracie has talent. She has knowledge of not only digital cameras, but film as well. Her photos have an effortless and timeless quality. One of the reasons I chose Gracie is because her photos accurately and beautifully capture time and emotion. The photos she took of my wedding are exactly how I remember the day. She also has the wonderful ability to make people feel comfortable. Gracie was right at home among my family at our very intimate ceremony. Gracie communicated and directed well. We are so happy to have the incredible wedding photos she made for us!
What a joy! We had never used a photographer before but when we got engaged we thought it was a perfect opportunity to try one. At first I didn't know what to expect since we were definitely not used to being in front of a camera, but she made it easy. The best part was that she told us exactly where to move to get the best shots. Really brought out the best in both of us. If you want high quality photos that have a natural brightness and airiness to them, book her!
Gracie did an amazing job with our engagements!! She made my fiance and I feel comfortable (he’s not one for taking pictures!) and she exuded joy and excitement the entire time. She took time to understand what style we wanted and looked closely at our example photos, making sure that the photos she took were exactly what we were dreaming of.
We met in Tulum and she was very sweet and polite. If you are not a model and worried how to pose, relax! Gracie pulls the internal model you didn't know you had. She will guide you and tell you what to do. It's very easy to work with Gracie and the pictures come out amazing.
My husband and I were instantly put at ease with Gracie's kind presence. She was the perfect photographer for our special day. Leading up to our wedding, she helped us best plan for everything from the organized family shots to the smallest details we wanted to capture. We felt completely trusting of her to capture this once in a lifetime day! A true beauty inside and out - her aesthetic and style truly wowed us. Can't recommend her highly enough! Wish we could do it all over again!
Gracie makes you feel very comfortable and calm on your wedding day. Her pictures are light and natural. Plus, she is an all around incredible person. Her caring and compassionate nature will confirm she is the one for you." Gracie approached her work very professionally. Her wedding party and family shots were creative and fun. She also made sure to photograph all of the guests which was important to us.
My husband and I are not big photo people but shooting with Gracie was such a breeze. She made us feel comfortable and gave great direction and encouragement. I highly recommend shooting with Gracie!
Gracie has an amazing eye to be able to capture the true feeling in her photos. Whether it’s joy, love, laughter, or just the true soul of her clients, she will create the perfect moment.
