heyyy, grace here!
NATIONAL PARKS ENTHUSIAST, TRAVELER & PHOTOGRAPHER
Ahh I'm so happy you're here!!
I could talk forever about how much I love being a destination wedding photographer, creating art, serving my clients well and creating an amazing wedding day experience – having a passion for both photography and my clients is why I do what I do. But instead I'll tell you a little bit about who I am! You spend so much of your day with your wedding photographer, it's important to be sure our personalities are a great match!
who i am
My husband Christian and I live in the sunshine state with our pup Scout! We run the business full time together providing wedding and elopement photography and videography, and we think it is the BEST job in the world. When we're not traveling for weddings, you can find us enjoying a cozy night in or exploring our local cities and beaches.
Like most of our couples, we value spending time with our friends and family. GTP is actually completely family-run with Grace and Christian as the full time employees, and Christian's sister, Alex, as our part-time assistant.
I'm most inspired by people's stories, and I am honored to document the most memorable pieces of yours. I love to capture the things that may go unnoticed, the in-between laughs, raw emotion and unexpected reactions. I believe in images that reflect your love story, the way it deserves to be narrated: honest, authentic and true to you.
the travel lifestyle
My wedding photography and videography business has its roots in my love for storytelling and traveling the national parks.
I got my first camera in 2013 for a cross country national parks trip and have loved photography ever since. Whether it's on a mountain top or on city streets, I love being in beautiful new places with couples who want to get married YOUR way, ditching the traditions you don't love, keeping the ones you do, and creating new ones!
Travel is a huge part of my weding and elopement photography business, and half of my weddings are actually outside of my home state of Florida. I've had the honor of documenting couples and weddings in Iceland, California, Arizona, Utah, Georgia, Tennessee, North & South Carolina, Washington DC, Delaware, New Jersey, New York City, Boston and beyond.
Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and I want you to be able to enjoy it being fully present and stress free.
When you hire us, you hire experienced professionals, a calm presence and friends you can trust. With more than 150 weddings of experience, I work well in a fast-paced, unpredictable environment with different lighting scenarios, varying family dynamics, and anything else a wedding day throws my way!
My degree is in Journalism with minors in Graphic Design and Visual Art; and my education in narrative storytelling and the arts largely contributes to how I approach photography.
My wedding photography style is a mix of journalism and fine art – subtly documenting the the candid moments while achieving editorial and artful images through thoughtful composition and posing.
SHE BRINGS THAT UPBEAT FUN ENERGY THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS
Anyone can tell from Grace’s work how talented she is… But what really makes her stand out is who she is as a person and a professional! My husband and I have never taken any pictures professionally together before our engagement shoot/wedding day and Grace made us feel so comfortable. We ended up having so much fun during both sessions because of her guidance and direction. She is so kind and helps bring that upbeat fun energy through the entire process! Aside from that, she goes way out of her way to help with ANYTHING wedding related. She helped guide me to different vendors when I didn’t even know where to start looking, answered our million questions we had, and was like a second planner the day of, helping make sure everything went as smoothly as possible. Our pictures are absolutely STUNNING and so many people have personally commented on how amazing Grace did!

LETTING YOU INTO MY LOVE STORY
OUR WEDDING DAY. may 30, 2021 – zion national park, utah
The guy you see up there is my absolute best friend, biggest supporter and the love of my life. Christian and I met on Hinge, so shoutout to all of my online dating success story couples!
Our first date was at BarTaco – because tacos are both of our favorite food.
We got married in May of 2021 right outside of Zion National Park with the people who we cherish the most and it was the best day of our lives!
We made our day our own and wrote our own vows and did a first look, and kept some wedding staples like our first dance.
After going through our season of engagement, wedding planning, and now married life, I value connecting with my couples on another level and offering the support and advice I appreciated during that time in my life.
P.S.: Christian is a videographer and takes weddings under his own brand, Christian Torres Films, as well.
