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

I am a Creative 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 known for applying a signature style to a few stand out images creating something stunning and unique for your walls.

I am  a recommended and trusted wedding photographer for top luxury wedding venues, 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.

AB Vista Event at Latimer House review

Just sharing the fab review I got from AB Vista event shoot I did at Latimer House this week.  So nice when someone emails you such positive review of your work – I just love my job!  Did some fun group photos, natural portraits and teambuilding photos too.  #latimerhouse #eventphotography #latimer #eventphotography #teambuildingphotos #lovemyjob #chenies #latimer #deverelatimerhouse @latimerhouse @artbyclairephotography

Hi Claire, The photos are absolutely fantastic – I think they are the best we’ve ever had for our meetings! Thank you so much. AB Vista

 

 

When you are too bored to join in…

Formal portraits can be a trial for little ones but I just LOVE this one.  So funny….

And here’s how you do it on a rainy day!

Yep you gather in the bride and groom’s best friends to come round the grounds with us for the photos of the two of them – and as you can see we had quite a lot of laughs on the way.  Weather is never a guarantee and I’ve long given up being worried about it – your wedding will always be amazing whatever happens…

One of my favourite spots

You are always looking out for lovely locations when you are a wedding photographer and this one is an obvious beauty @shendishmanor  I have seen this particular place (and shot it)  in snow, rain, sun, mist and it is always stunning….  Sometimes you just don’t have to worry what the weather is.  Don’t you agree?

Hello you two

Arriving at the beautiful Shendish Manor after a very rainy start at the church – it was almost only drizzling….!  Never seen a groom more thankful for his beer – there are actually two in his hands !

Mr & Mrs Sharples

I do love a night time shot.  It’s atmospheric, and gorgeous even if you do have rain !  This photo is taken outside the front of @shendishmanor

I hope you had the best day Mr & Mrs Sharples.  Your sneaky peak photos will be sent to you shortly!

Claire & Craig’s Wedding Day, Shendish Manor

Had the most amazing day with these two – yes it rained all day; I mean ALL day long, but that didn’t stop us walking around the grounds and capturing as much as we possibly could – lots of fun shots and gorgeous ones too.  I hope you had the best day Mr & Mrs Sharples.  Your sneaky peak photos will be sent to you shortly!
