About Clare Tam-Im Photography

Hi, my name is Clare and I am a wedding photographer in Hertfordshire but travelling all over the UK for weddings. 

My style is all about getting lots of relaxed, natural and fun photographs of your wedding day. I love colour and personality. I love photographing weddings where you have stamped your personality all over it, not worrying about traditions, because you want to do it your way. To enjoy your day with your loved ones as that's what it's all about really. 

I've been shooting weddings since 2010 and have a BA (Hons) and Foundation Degree, both in Photography, under my belt. But I don't think having qualifications makes any difference when it comes to it.

I love photographing weddings because there's just so much joy throughout the day. I love photographing the little moments that may be forgotten about until the photograph is seen, you and your guests laughing and enjoying the day, the odd emotional tear from speeches or beautiful vows.

Feel free to have a nose at my website so that you can see more of my work and to get more of a feel of me and my style.

  • "Couldn't of asked for better!"
    Camellia on 22 January 2018

    I am probably an unusual bride as I wasn't super into the planning stage. I was nervous about the photographer because I love pictures and if they are bad, well thats what your stuck with. Clare was super nice and helpful through out the day. She sent this questionnaire which at first I thought O god, But in reality it was SUPER helpful to know all the group shots you wanted and made it all super quick. I have been to wedding where the bride never thought about this and when it came to photographs it was nightmare cause no one knew what they were meant to be doing. She also was very flexible with what I wanted and listened to me. (unlike other photographers that were demanding to have two shooters, which for a small wedding like mine was ridiculous) She was even happy to have my dog there and photograph her too. I seriously couldn't say a bad thing about Clare. Even after the wedding was done she was helpful and replied to emails. She even sent us a Christmas card! I would 100% recommend her to anyone who asks!

  • "Amazing and professional"
    Roberta on 22 January 2018

    Clare was our photographer at our wedding in January 2017. She has created a magical album of natural and beautiful photos. Clare was very flexible and proactive. She made us feel very comfortable and relaxed while taking photos. She has also come up with suggestions with regard to different places/a different spot in order to catch the sun rays which was fantastic. We highly recommend Clare Ta-Min to shoot your wedding, Roberta& Nik

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

My prices start from £1050 depending on how much coverage you would like on your wedding day and what's included in your package.

What services do you offer?

I offer half day coverage and full day coverage. I also offer engagement shoots, albums, viewmasters and other ways to showcase your wedding photographs.

What does the wedding package include?

All my wedding packages include a USB with your photographs on in high resolution, an online gallery to share with your family and friends that they can download from and travel across the UK.

How far in advance should I contact you?

I always recommend you get in touch as soon as possible. I have dates booked three years in advance, but also have some dates available last minute as well.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No because that would be unfair on you. What happens if your wedding is running late? Or if you want me to stay longer? I want to have my total focus on you and your wedding. Not worrying about having to run off to go to another.

What is the charge for travelling?

I do not charge extra for travelling within the UK. Accommodation may be required if travelling afar.

What style of photos do you take?

My style is relaxed, natural and fun wedding photography.

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use Canon cameras and equipment. I always shoot with two cameras during the day and have back up equipment as well.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

You will have an online gallery that you can share with your family and friends. It is password protected so only the people that you forward the password to will have access to it. From the gallery, photos can be downloaded or prints can be ordered.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

The week after your wedding, I will send you a link to some sneak peeks from your wedding day. Then it will be about 4-6 weeks (6-8 weeks in peak season) for you to receive your photographs via USB and online gallery.

Do you send all the photos taken?

For a full day coverage, you will get at least 400 photographs. I give you as many as I can, but delete ones if eyes are shut, testing the lighting, if they're a duplicate or someone looks unflattering.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I work mainly on my own, but I also offer a second photographer if you want one.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

Of course. Touch wood it hasn't happened so far, but if I was unable to photograph your wedding due to reasons completely out of my control, then I would arrange a replacement for you. I am in a network full of other professional wedding photographers so I would have back up available.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

As I own copyright to the photographs, I am able to use wedding photographs to advertise my business. However, if you wish to keep your photographs private, that is not a problem. All I would need is written confirmation of this.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Of course. I am always happy to stay longer if you feel you need me to.

How do you charge extra time?

I currently charge £150 per hour for extra time.

What are the forms of payment?

I take payment via BACS.

How do you work?

As my style is all about getting relaxed, natural and fun wedding photographs, I do not direct what's happening during the day. The only time I give guidance is during the group shots so everyone knows what they are doing and during your portraits. Other than that, I am capturing the day as it happens. When it comes to your portraits, I don't pose you but ask you to have a cuddle or talk about what you both thought when you first saw each other. Little things like that so you can focus on one another and be yourselves rather than feel uncomfortable trying to pose or act unnatural. I love capturing fun moments so like to be in close to it. I love starting from when you're getting ready and finishing up to an hour after the first dance to get lots of party shots.
