wedding photography experience

My approach is to photograph timeless images all while creating an authentic experience. I have a deep love for bright whites, stunning greens and soft pastels. There will be a perfect blend of sweet candids and natural moments, plus beautifully posed portraits of you and your love. 


Claire's my gal!

Once we decide we're the perfect match, we'll schedule your engagement session. At your engagement session, you'll be able to get in front of my camera for the first time. I'll guide you through the posing process to create fun, natural photos that are true to you!

A few months from the big day, we'll set up a detail day and timeline call. This gives me time to dedicate to your gorgeous details instead of hurrying through them day of.

The timeline call ensures the day will run smoothly and will assist me in capturing all the special moments.

I know the great anticipation that comes with waiting for your gallery! So within 72 hours, you'll have a preview of your images and the entire gallery will be delivered to you within 6 weeks!

My wedding day Favorites

connor + laiken

Claire was an amazing photographer to work with! She was very organized and took special care in taking all of the shots we requested. One of our favorite things about our experience with Claire at our wedding was how calm and gentle she was while still maintaining assertiveness. Many photographers increase the stress of the wedding day, but we had many friends and family comment on how kind and patient Claire was and how she helped make the entire day flow smoothly. On top of how great she was to work with, we had our ENTIRE gallery back to us less than 5 days after our wedding! It was such a gift to be able to enjoy all of our beautifully edited photos so quickly after the wedding day. We could not be any happier with how everything turned out!

One of my favorite moments was sneaking away from the reception for golden hour pictures! It was our first opportunity to get away from all the people and focus on the fact that we had just gotten married! Claire and Ben were awesome to shoot with all day. We chose Claire as our wedding photographer because David and I grew up showing goats with her at the county fair! It was great that we were already comfortable with her, but truly she doesn't need that advantage. She brings a calm yet excited vibe wherever she goes that puts people at ease in front of the camera. On top of all this, her work is absolutely stunning!

Claire is the best there is!! She makes you feel so comfortable. She guides you the whole way so you get the best shots. I personally loved the Motherhood Experience! I got my hair and makeup done (include in the package!) and I was able to purchase a beautiful frame with our favorite photo. Highly recommend Claire!

This was our first time having professional family photos taken of us and we couldn’t have had a better experience than with Claire! Even my husband who does not like to be photographed said “I would do that again!” We love Claire!!
