  • 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!!!

  • 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. 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!

  • 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 hi... Read more

  • The most important detail of our wedding to my, now, husband and I were the photos. Therefore we researched quite extensively and we are beyond grateful for the art Grace created in our engagement and wedding photos. She is knowledgeable, makes you feel very comfortable, and is extremely talented. Honestly I am short on words because her photos speak for themselves. I would say they have a romantic and artistic feel to them. Many of our loved ones have commented that she catches personal moments well and that her art is something you might see in a magazine.

  • Grace was amazing on our wedding day! We had a really small wedding, but I was still overwhelmed on the day trying to get everything ready. Grace showed up and took charge, got things organized, staked our our spot at the Santa Barbara courthouse, and took the most gorgeous photos. My husband and I love them so much, and I cannot thank Grace enough for everything she did for us that day. She’s more than a photographer— she helped me relax! And that’s huge :)

  • Grace is simply the best! I have nothing but amazing things to say about her and her photography. My friend used Grace for her wedding in Southern California, and I was blown away by her talent behind her camera lens. I just felt pure happiness when looking at her photos, and having the opportunity to work with her previously and seeing first hand how relaxed she made us all feel at my friend's wedding, I knew it would be silly not to use her! My husband and I are so grateful we did! We used Grace for our engagement photos as well, and I had heard stories from other friends about how awkward they felt during their engagement photo sessions, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Grace made us feel completely comfortable and her lighthearted personality with the occasional joke during our session made everything perfect and so enjoyable. The result of this totally shines through in both our engagement and wedding photos. She worked closely with us over the phone and by email to make sure she ... Read more

  • We had a wonderful experience working with Grace. We had a small elopement (just my husband and 18 month old daughter) in Santa Barbara - so I was a bit nervous having strangers join in on our celebrations that day. Grace was so relaxed throughout - she was a pleasure to hang out with. So happy to have her as our official witness! We could not be happier with our photos. Grace was so patient and sweet with our daughter - as we had to be a bit "go with the flow" with a toddler on board. Grace took such beautiful pictures of our family. I was so impressed with her ability to frame her photos and capture these special moments. She was able to suggest poses without making things feel forced or artificial. She also took some amazing pictures of the Four Seasons and Santa Barbara courthouse - which really helped us to remember the feel of the whole day. Our friends and family have been equally impressed with our photos, and consistently comment on how "stunning" they are. Comm... Read more

  • I cannot overstate how incredible Grace is and how happy we are with our photos! She is a true talent, a professional, and a delight to work with. There are too many things I want to say about her but I will pick just a few: 1) Skill. Grace is an extremely talented photographer. Her eye for creative shots is truly incredible. She was able to capture both the emotions of the day and the beauty of it through her lens! 2) Professionalism. Grace is a professional. She showed up to everything on time, ran her team (second shooter and assistant) efficiently, was extremely responsive via email, and stuck to all of her deadlines. We were absolutely confident in her and never had to think twice about whether she would pull through. 3) Personality. Grace was there for some of the most intimate and private parts of our wedding, which meant could have been incredible awkward but wasn’t! She is kind, warm, and extremely pleasant to be around. She was a fly on the wall during our first lo... Read more

  • Grace was great in every way possible and we're incredibly happy with her as our witness and photographer. We traveled from Sweden to elope in the S.B. Courthouse so arranging everything from abroad was an ease with Grace and we felt really informed during the whole process. Most importantly, the pictures turned out stunning and she guided us through the Santa Barbara Courthouse, making us feel super special.

  • Grace and her assistant Aly photographed my wedding in August. Grace's work is beautiful, artistic, and romantic. The photos speak for themselves! I spent a lot of time searching for and speaking with different photographers, as this was one of the most important decisions for me when planning my wedding. From the first time I spoke with Grace on the phone, I knew she was going to be perfect. She's sweet, thoughtful, and a great listener. Grace specializes in outdoor photography and when I told her my concerns about there being shadows from the bright, afternoon sun during my outdoor ceremony, she totally put me at ease. On the big day, she did a great job wrangling my husband's and my large families for family portraits. We chose not to do a "first-look", so it was really important for me that she caught my husband's and my reaction when we first saw each other during the ceremony - and boy did she deliver! The photos she took of that moment are priceless. Simply put, Grace is amazi... Read more

  • We are so beyond happy we choose Grace along with her photog gal pal Alexandra Wallace for our wedding! We were married at our home in San Diego in July, which made it a less predictable wedding venue to shoot on. Their work was absolutely stunning! They did an amazing job of finding the perfect nooks and perspectives in our home and on our property that captured our personalities, the atmosphere of our wedding, and the specialist of moments! They did an impressive job of slipping into the background so that they were able to capture authentic moments between my husband and myself, and our guests. And to top it off, they were the easiest people to work with! They made us feel so comfortable and at ease on such a big day. The photos they captured were beyond beautiful! We LOVE our wedding photos! In addition, the digital portfolio they sent us following the wedding was beautifully curated. If you are as lucky as we were to find Grace Kathryn Photography, do not hesitate to book her!

  • Grace is amazing!! My husband and I found Grace when looking through photos of Santa Barbara weddings and I just loved her natural style. She is seriously talented with lighting, which was really important to me as both our ceremony and reception venues were outdoors. After our initial phone consultation, I was sold. She's very down-to-earth, professional, and a breeze to work with. She was super flexible with us as we had to change dates of our engagement shoot almost 5 times due to the wet weather this winter. We purchased her engagement photos + wedding package. She was also awesome about working in a little bonus session a few days before our wedding to fit some gorgeous sunset beach photos since we didn't have time to fit them in the day of the wedding. Working with her the day of the wedding was also fantastic - she has the type of personality that is very relaxed and does not add to the stress of the day at all. Her style was also really nonintrusive, I hardly noticed she was ta... Read more

  • Great find and unreal value! After researching photographers in the area, I was concerned with how this piece of our wedding was going to fit into our budget. I initially contacted Grace because of how reasonably priced she was. After speaking with her on the phone and seeing her portfolio we decided to book her for our day. Originally we hadn’t wanted to take engagement photos, Grace wasn’t pushy about it either, but after some thought we booked two hours when we were in town visiting the venue. Grace accommodated our rather packed visit, she had great recommendations for where to shoot and made my fiancé and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. She even put up with us when we requested a few goofy pictures. The pictures were provided to us in a timely manner, we were not forced to print them via her site (which further helps our budget) and she provided a complimentary print of our choice. Leading up to our wedding day, Grace was patient as I put off creating a s... Read more
