I'm a California native with a wanderlusting soul. I grew up in the snowy mountains of Lake Tahoe and spent my teenage years in the rainforests of Costa Rica before returning to the West Coast of the United States to study the art of wedding photography and earn my BFA with Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. I specialize in capturing outdoor weddings, destination weddings, adventure couples, and elopements. Natural light, real moments, and emotions are my constant inspiration. My engagement and portrait shoots are laid back, relaxed, and true to you and your personalities. I have been shooting weddings for over 7 years, and feel lucky and grateful to be able to do what I love and live a life full of creativity and passion.
Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make during your planning process. You will spend more time with your photographer than any other vendor on the wedding day, and I always encourage couples to choose a photographer whose work they love, and who they trust & enjoy being around.
I approach every wedding with the intention of capturing your day in the most genuine ways. My goal is to capture your real personalities and all the little things that make you and your wedding unique & special, while providing an experience that feels fun and relaxed!
Being a storyteller at heart, the images I create for you will invite you to travel back in time during the years to come - to relive the memories with the people who help celebrate your love.

Grace and her work are outstanding!!! We found her through our wedding planner. What caught our eyes was definitely her vibrant and artistic style of photos. I could not be happier, she captured our elopement just as we envisioned. I’m glad and thankful to have memories for a life time, with no regret of how the photos came out. Grace is super sweet and we enjoyed shooting our special day with her! My friends and family were absolutely in love with the photos!!!Sent on 10/10/2019

Do not hesitate to look any further than Grace for your photography needs. From the onset, our communication with Grace was exceptional - completely helpful and knowledgeable, answering our emails promptly and continuously putting our needs and concerns at ease.Sent on 09/28/2019
We absolutely loved her relaxed but incredibly professional attitude throughout our experience.
Coming from the UK to California for our renewals, we relied heavily on her positive feedback - Grace is exceptionally worthy of each one.
Our photograph collection has been executed to the highest standard, leaving little to do other than look back on very fond memories and hope that our next encounter isn't too far into the future. Book her before someone else does!

Grace and her team are rockstars!
I can’t say enough good things about Grace and her team!!We hired grace for our wedding this past April in Thousand Oaks. Grace is based in Santa Barbara and I live in LA but she was always so accommodating and kind and would meet us half way whenever we needed to have in-person meetings. She responds to emails quickly and is a pleasure to work with. Other than that her work is BEYOND!! My husband and I are obsessed with our wedding photos and if it wasn’t weird I would print them all out and use them as wall paper for my bedroom because each and every one of them is incredible. They are bright and vibrant and everyone looks good! On the day of the wedding her team arrived on time and made the best use of the time we had them for. They got so many detail shots of the venue and our cocktail hour that I saw things in the pictures that I missed in real life on the day of the wedding. A photographer is one of the most important vendors you will hire - don’t make the mistake of not hiring Grace!Sent on 07/10/2019

Between January and March 2020, I will be offering complimentary engagement sessions to ALL couples who book 8+ hour wedding packages with me! The wedding can be for any date, you just need to book your package by March 31, 2020 to take advantage of this offer!
If you choose not to use the engagement session, you can instead opt for an additional 1 hour of photo coverage on your wedding day. Let's shoot!
Grace Kathryn Photography does beautiful work. Her photos are feminine & pretty with a fashion feel to them. Grace is an understated talent. She loves her job, has no ego, extremely professional and wants what is best for the client, which is probably the type of photographer a Bride would want to have for the duration of her wedding day. I highly recommend Grace Kathryn Photography. Lovely person & lovely work.
