Grace Clarke came to me just over a year ago asking if she could get some work experience with me, she asked if we could meet up so she could ask me a few questions about photography….
So on 1st May 2015 we arranged to meet for coffee in Prime Cafe Bar, Grace arrived with two A4 pages of questions about wedding photography, how to set up a business, styled shots, posing, camera kit, editing techniques and much much more. I was very impressed! I knew from that moment that this girl was special. She was so keen, so passionate about photography and had so much enthusiasm to learn everything she possibly could about wedding photography, I couldn’t wait to start working with her and mentoring her.
The first time Grace worked for me as a second shooter was one month later for a styled wedding photo shoot with Duke of Cornwall Hotel organised by Jenny Wren Weddings & Events, Grace had so many creative ideas she wanted to try out and worked very hard all day. One month later we found out that a selection of Grace’s images were published in the feature for Wed Magazine and on a number of top wedding blogs!
Since then Grace’s has assisted me with a number of pre wedding shoots, weddings, events, workshops and styled photo shoots which have been widely published, and she has gone on to set up her own successful wedding photography business Grace Elizabeth Photography. Grace has achieved all of this and much more whilst studying photography Plymouth College of Art!
It has been so wonderful watching Grace develop her own signature style of wedding photography. Grace aims to tell love stories through artistic, honest and authentic photographs, capturing precious moments so that they can be re-lived again and again.
GOOD LUCK GRACE! You are an EXTREMELY talented photographer and you work is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL! We are so blessed to know you and have you as our personal family photographer, and friend, Plymouth will not be the same without you!!!!
