‘Here’s the thing about magic: It’s most powerful when it is believed in, whole heartedly’ Chanel French.

I am a Natural Wedding Photographer based in Hemel Hempstead and I definitely believe in magic. Photography is the most amazing and wonderful art.    I know choosing your Wedding Photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make and my creative talents will ensure you relax, have a wonderful day and enjoy your Wedding Photos for many years to come.  So, let me tell your story.   I shoot a limited number of Weddings per year to ensure a professional, and unique approach to every wedding.

I am a  documentary style Story Teller with an Arts background and  tell your wedding story through my images. With over 15 years of wedding experience, I deliver exquisite photos of your special day with a quirky edge & an eye for the comic, touching, and fun moments.  I am friendly, discreet and easy to get along with; devoted to capturing all your amazing moments including the traditional elements of your wedding. Apart from arranging your formal portraits (I promise not to spend too long on these so you can enjoy your guests! ) I will be documenting your wedding behind the scenes and focusing on beautiful photos of the two of you to treasure for a lifetime.  I am also a recommended and trusted wedding photographer for Ashridge House, Latimer House, Shendish Manor, Sopwell House, The Noke Mercure, Notley Tythe Barn, The Kings Arms, Berkhamsted, Putteridge bury, Moor Park, Boxmoor Lodge.

As a family photographer I specialise in Pregnancy, Newborns & Family Portraits. Newborn Photography is such a passion.  I adore these shoots so let me know when your little one is on its way as best time to capture them is within the first two weeks. I work either in my studio & offer at home shoots with a variety of props, blankets and baskets. As well as family photographs (which are often taken outdoors in a rural setting if possible) I do bespoke Lifestyle Business Shoots which covers website head shots to a complete appraisal of your business and self image.

Summer or Monsoon?

I don’t know whether I am coming or going with this weather, and I expect most brides are thinking the same – however I do know I’ll be back at the gorgeous Latimer House this sunday for a wedding with Monika and Minesh! – Can’t wait for the promised sunshine and to be at this lovely venue….. Here’s a photo from Chantelle and Warren’s wedding last year when temperatures hit 36 degrees and the ground was scorched yellow – (let’s hope it’s not quite so hot though!)

Cute little Newborn – baby E

I have a little personal interest in this two week old newborn today, as I photographed her grandparents wedding last year!  She is so adorable and I wanted to get a few sneaky peak photos ready for her parents.   Here she is!  Lots more to come in the final edit.  She did such a good job of frowning for me too and kicking those legs out….  When you do a newborn shoot you literally have no idea how it will go as it is all dictated by a little person…..! Well done E.

Love a sculpture in a wedding…

I was so lucky when shooting this gorgeous wedding, that the owner of a beautiful garden nearby approached me to ask if I wanted to shoot the bride and groom in her home.

To say the garden was spectacular is no understatement – it was simply gorgeous.  Thanks so much to this lovely lady who opened her home and garden to us!

Woodland Shoot with baby T

So lovely to be able to shoot this gorgeous little baby, 8 months old, in the sunny woodlands of Ashridge with her fab parents (whose wedding I did at Shendish Manor two years ago now)

We had the bluebell wood all to ourselves as it was end of season but no less spectacular. These woods almost have a soporific effect on me as I never fail to leave feeling totally relaxed – does anyone know if bluebells release a calming agent!?

Anyway here’s a few of the photos from the shoot.  If you are interested in booking a shoot with me just email for full FAQ claire@artbyclaire.com
