Hello! Let me start by introducing myself. I am Serenity, Owner and Photographer at Southern Grace Studios. My family is from East Tennessee but I was born and raised in beautiful Asheville, NC. I spent a year living in Branson, MO before calling East Tennessee my home. I have been truly blessed to grow up in the gorgeous mountains. My photography journey started years ago in Landscapes and Wildlife.

I created a blog that for 3 years I posted a new photo everyday. It was such an amazing experience and allowed me to truly find the beauty in everything around me.

When I decided to branch out and include all of the amazing and beautiful people around me I knew immediately how important it was. I am not just taking a photo that will become your social media profile image. I am capturing the most precious moments in your life. Helping you to create a legacy for generations to come. A photo that one day your great, great grandchildren can look back on. Holding a precious piece of where they came from. Something to truly treasure but not only for your lifetime but for many after.

This makes my heart smile and I have always been told to "do what makes your heart smile".

My husband John moved here from Burton Upon Trent, England. As soon as we met we instantly shared this amazing love for photography. He is often my assistant as well as second photographer when needed and is at the ready should I ever be unavailable for any reason. His skills and knowledge in photography are spot on! In 2011 we shared a cover on the local WINK Magazine. "The Top 10 Places to Visit in East Tennessee". Exploring the Great Smoky Mountains and all there is to do in this beautiful area we call home.


I truly look forward to meeting you and your loved ones!
