The emotion, the drama, the excitement and all the amazing couples I get to meet along the way, what’s not to love! My photography style is contemporary reportage with traditional storytelling, all with a smile and a helping hand. I capture the big moments, the quiet ones, the feelings and emotions as they all come together to make your wedding day extra special. I know that choosing your perfect photographer is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make for your big day. It’s important that you work with a photographer who’s right for you and whom you feel comfortable with. What I offer you as your wedding photographer is a friendly face on your big day, we’ll meet up to have a coffee so you can tell me all about your wedding plans, we build a relationship that enables me to capture the photos that you really want. I’ll make sure I know who all the important people are so when you look back at your photos you’ll see your loved ones who mean everything to you.
I’m always told “we didn’t notice you, in the nicest possible way!” and this is music to my ears. I melt into the background and capture your day naturally as it happens. But on the flip side I’m absolutely there for you when you need me and happy to lend a hand at any time. After all I’ve been to heaps of weddings so I have lots of experience!
I’m from the small town of Alton in Hampshire, l loved growing up there and still visit regularly so see my parents and many school friends that are a huge part of my life. I studied at Leeds University where I had the time of my life and met my crazy best friends with whom I created memories I’ll treasure forever. My degree was in Graphic Arts but I was always drawn to photography and this is where I focused my work. Digital photography was still new at this point and it was all about my beloved medium format camera. I spent hours in the dark room with all the chemicals, creating an amazing image from film. There is something very magical about this process and I’m glad I had the opportunity to develop my photography skills this way.
I moved to London about 13 years ago and this is where I met my lovely, gorgeous husband and I enjoyed all that the wonderful city has to offer. In 2016 we made the big move and bought our first house in a village in Surrey called Merstham near Redhill and Reigate. The next year our lives changed forever when our little superstar Jack came along and we entered the amazing, wonderful, exhausting world of parenthood. Then a couple years later our gorgeous baby Thomas joined the gang and our family was complete.
Thankfully this magnificent job of being a wedding photographer enables me to spend lots of time with my boys and for that I feel incredibly lucky.
I love the countryside, I love the calm of nature, and I absolutely love the sea. I am a water baby and never happier than when submerged in water. I swim, run and play netball when I can and I am also a big fan of GIN!!
Over the years I have done a variety of work but my underlying passion has always been photographing people. Capturing a single moment of time that tells a whole story is truly captivating and something that will never fail to amaze me. For me weddings are the perfect environment; the amazing couples, the stories, the love, the happiness, it really is an honour to be part of each and every one.
Having been a bride myself in the summer of 2014 I know the experience from both sides of the camera and what the means to everyone involved. You spend months planning your perfect day and the whole thing is a whirlwind that you want to relive over and over again. To have amazing photos that you love and can look back on for years to come is priceless. Weddings are expensive and it’s hard to see the true value of quality photography until after the day has passed but it’s important to remember that those photos are what you have to remember your day by.
Lynsey is absolutely amazing and captured our day so beautifully, we could not have been happier with our photos. Lynsey was so nice and came and met us before our wedding so we knew exactly what to expect, on the day Lynsey was amazing and you would barely know she was there! All of the photos are natural and we could not recommend Lynsey Grace Photography any higher.

Lynsey is a wonderful, personable photographer. She manages to put everyone at ease with her warm smile and personality. The photographs were absolutely beautiful and the quality outstanding. I would highly recommend her to anyone and also recommend the wedding album package. We received the wedding album and we are delighted with how beautifully presented it is. Thank you so much Lynsey!
