I know choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make and my skills will ensure you relax and have a wonderful day and enjoy your wedding photos for many years to come.
No matter what your budget you will be able to afford my Professional Photographic Wedding Services as my prices start from as little as £160.
Every Wedding Booking includes an Engagement Shoot a Silver Album and a Mini Still Photo Video. Unless you opt for Digital Only.
Remember you are better off having a brilliant Wedding Photographer for a few hours than a cheap photographer all day so please do consider cutting back in other areas but not your Wedding Photography.
My approach to Weddings
I shoot a limited number of Weddings per year to ensure a professional, and unique approach to every wedding. I also have my own log cabin studio at home in the garden for gorgeous little family shoots and shoot on location of your choosing for natural outdoor shots. I am a documentary style Story Teller with an Arts background hence the name ArtbyClaire and creatively tell your wedding through photos.
With over 15 years experience as a photographer 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 in a fun and touching way. 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.
Let me know where you are getting ready, your venue, ceremony time, ideal photography coverage for your big day and your budget and I can tailor make your wedding for you..
I can even spend just ten minutes doing flowers , shoes, dress and getting ready shots in the mirror. Similarly I can do a pretend cutting cake shot before you go in for your wedding breakfast if it’s a few hours you want.
As a general rule of thumb the earlier your ceremony is in the day the more photographic hours required to include Bridal Prep to First Dance.
The average length of wedding photography for Bridal Prep to First Dance is between 7 – 9 hours.
Practical stuff ! I have the latest Canon EOS Mark III and a Canon 24 – 70mm F2.8 lens too for the bulk of my wedding work and also use a 70-200mm f4 and a 50mm & 85mm F1.8 lenses too. I also have a 4×4 SUV so you can rely on me getting to your wedding whatever the weather.
What do I wear?
I wear black and rubber soled boots so I can run quietly like a ninja. I’ve modelled myself on Lara Croft (ha ha) so expect to see me with two cameras slung around my neck, a bumbag (wish that sounded more exotic) and some lucozade at the ready.
Viewing my work in advance
ArtbyClaire believes it is important you see complete weddings (if you know your venue already please let me know as I can send you links to weddings I have done there)
I am also recommended by Latimer House, Sopwell House, Shendish Manor, Boxmoor Lodge, Osterley House, The Bury, Aubrey Park Hotel, Woburn Inn, The Holiday Inn, Marston Vale, St Michael’s Manor, Moor Park, The Noke Thistle, The Grove, Putteridge Bury and work with an excellent network of reputable suppliers.
