"We met Claire in the run up to the wedding and pretty quickly it was clear that Claire was going to be able to do exactly what we wanted with zero fuss. We left the meeting excited, without any worry and that we had chosen the right photographer.

Throughout the day Claire was a joy to work with. It truly felt like we had a friend there with us to photograph our day, a friend that is excellent and serious about her job while putting everyone at ease to get the best shots.

We didn't have a thing to worry about all day.

Obviously when we received the photos, they only confirmed what we already knew...our day was captured perfectly."

"Claire was an absolute gem for us. She was our wedding photographer and we were so happy she was available. She made the day easier for us, and the photos she took were incredible.

She knew exactly the type of photographs we were after. She captured the candid, natural moments and had the vision to think up a few ideas for just my husband and I, which suited our personalities.

We would definitely recommend Claire!"

"Claire is great and we cannot recommend her highly enough. She is super friendly and a wonderful photographer and she did a superb job capturing our wedding day - even in Covid times. We did a video call in advance so she could get our input and she had scouted out some fabulous, cool, edgy sites for beautiful couple shots after the ceremony. Claire put us and our guests at ease. The quality of the pics she has taken are great, framed well, interesting techniques and reflective of the quality on her site and she has sent the final pics promptly - just as she said she would. We're very grateful."

We first met Claire when we had our portrait from the pavement done during lockdown. I was pregnant and wanted the time (baby on the way, living in London, in isolation during these crazy times) caught on film. Claire was brilliant and the photos even better! She made us feel so comfortable, laughing throughout the shoot, and we loved the photos!

When the little one arrived I knew I had to get Claire back for some more shots this time in the garden, and dare I say it, but the shots were even better than the last!

Since then we've had a 3rd shoot for our engagement and I'm sure she'll be there for our wedding too!

Thanks Claire- you're the best!

"10/10!!! We had a shoot with Claire and we were buzzing! We were not sure about an engagement shoot originally, but saw Claire's lovely photography and wanted to capture some photos as memories from this time. She was so accommodating from the off and we discussed some locations that meant a lot to us, and she knew would mean some great picture opportunities. She helped advise us on the best time to have the shoot and stayed incredibly positive and supportive throughout it and made us feel like pros (when we were quite nervous!).

We loved the outcome and have some photos to treasure forever now - thank-you Claire - we can't recommend you enough!!!"

The photos are so special and sensational.  You totally 'got us' Claire, and in so doing captured the essence and fun of our day perfectly. Your calm presence helped us transcend the weird circumstances of a teeny-tiny covid wedding and, in so doing, you have given us truly memorable, joyous images that speak to our hearts, minds and souls.

We couldn't ask for a more special memory, truly, you are gifted Claire. Geoff and I feel so blessed that we found you.

Our guests (and those who sadly couldn't join us) have all commented on how much they LOVE how you caught our day: the sense of joy and celebration undeniably shines through. Your photos truly bring a smile to our hearts and souls. Thank you for all you did to make this possible and help us keep such incredibly special memories alive.

"Brilliant, if we could give Claire 10 stars out of 5 we would! Claire was impeccably organized in the run up to the day, not once did she ask for information that we’d already given her (and she was so chilled when our plan changed about 5 times, thanks COVID). We really didn’t want the photos to take us away from our guests for too long or for anything to be done just ‘for a photo’. Claire understood this completely, mostly blending in the background taking candid photos. She gave us a couple of photos straight away (she must have got editing as soon as she got home) which was awesome as we could share them sharpish with people who hadn’t been able to be there due to COVID restrictions. The finished photos look stunning, exactly the style we wanted and everyone we have shown them to has loved them. Booking Claire was one of the best decisions we made in the run up to our wedding, highly recommended!”

"We would 100% without a doubt recommend Claire to anyone getting married. Claire was so flexible with us and moving our wedding because of Covid. She was so supportive in the lead up to the big day. She was so amazing on the day, made everyone feel so comfortable and happy. Not to mention how fantastic the photos are! We could not be happier with our experience with Claire. If you’re considering her as a photographer, just do it - book her now!"

"Claire was brilliant at capturing our day. She had great ideas for photographs and managed to make everyone look amazing! We'll treasure these photos forever.

Thanks Claire!"

"Absolutely delighted that we chose Claire to be part of our special day. We had a very intimate Covid wedding and Claire was a fantastic addition to our party. She is so professional but also personable and enthusiastic and made us all feel relaxed and reassured. It’s so refreshing to meet someone who is so passionate about their job as she clearly really enjoys it. Also she immediately sent through a few preliminary snaps on the day which I thought was a lovely touch as it allowed me to forward them to absent family & friends straight away. And our photos are so beautiful. I would recommend Claire all day long!"

The communication before the big day, during and after was brilliant. Claire thought of everything and took away a lot of the stress that comes with a wedding! We love our wedding photos and cannot thank Claire enough!"

"We absolutely love our photos, what a great memory of our wedding day! We all look so happy, even though we had a wedding full of restrictions.

You will have wonderful photos on your special day if you decide to work with Claire."

“Claire made lots of great suggestions on location and logistics, which were perfect…we couldn’t have been happier. Claire captured our big day beautifully and we can’t recommend her highly enough!”

"On the build up to the day you can’t but wonder did we choose the right person, thankfully we did. The preparation and meetings beforehand meant that on the day we didn’t have to think about anything. She was able to make everyone feel relaxed and we like to think it shows in the photos. Claire was able to capture amazingly natural moments that we will be able to look back on in the years to come. Thank you again so much, Claire."

"Claire is a fantastic photographer. On our wedding day she was professional and friendly. She made our day easy. My husband and I are very pleased with the pictures she took."

"We had an amazing experience with Claire from start to the end. We held our micro wedding beginning of May. Regardless how many people we had, Claire took her time and went through our ideas and suggestions with us way before the wedding. She was very responsive and nothing was a problem for her. was We received the photos not even a week from our wedding and everyone loved it. She captured well an informal vibe of our wedding , which we really wanted. Overall , highly recommended!!"
