    Claire is amazing

    So we first met claire 3 years ago when she took our sons 1st birthday cake smash and splash pictures. She was so lovely and everything we asked for in a photographer. A year later I asked could she take some pictures of our children with their great grandparents and again claire produced the most beautiful pictures and made the whole family feel at ease so when it came to our wedding pictures we knew exactly who we wanted and that was Claire. Claire went above and beyond to make our wedding experience perfect. She kept in contact from the minute we booked her to the wedding day and made sure she knew exactly what we wanted. Everyone on the day said how lovely she was and how relaxed she made everyone feel. She is the most loveliest person and truly wants to make your day go as magical and smoothly as possible. Then when the photos came I couldn’t believe how perfect they were. From capturing special moments with parents to the beautiful relaxed posed pictures with my husband the whole day felt like a fairytale and reliving the day through claire’s amazing pictures we knew we made the right choice with her as our photographer. I would highly recommend claire to anyone wanting a wedding photographer and we can’t thank her enough.

    The most perfect day - so long as we had claire

    Myself & my husband, Chris. Originally was due to get married 27/03/2020 - due to the first lockdown occurring just days before the wedding, we unfortunately had new news that we had to postpone, During this news Claire was the biggest comfort, she reassured us, calmed us down and promised us that we will get through it together.
    Claire took the time to get to know us as a couple, she spent time with us and our son, getting a feel for our vibe and the way we envision our day to be.
    She was so kind and thoughtful when it came to our son, she knew that we wanted pictures mainly of us as a family and also, pictures of him just enjoying the day too - and my word, did she get the shots!
    3 postponements and we finally got the day. 12/11/21
    it came on a beautiful, rainy & cold day in the Bolton Hills
    Claire arrived early, came straight to see me as give me a big hug. it was such a relief during the pre wedding nerves to see claire, she is such a calming presence.
    Claire spent time with my friends and family, getting creative shots of the make up & hair.
    She also spent time in the morning making sure she got the shots of my nana & grandad which i hold so very dear to me.
    Claire worked so well with the venue staff, she ensured things ran to the right timings without pressuring us to rush or feel rushed.
    she uses amazing equipment to support the quality of the shots, including special lighting features.
    She got the groomsmen & bridesmaids involved and even at one point, was down on the floor with the children playing and getting beautiful candid shots, that you could never replicate.
    we have so many fond memories of the day, and claire was central to them.

    the whole day was made amazing by claire, we had her right up until just after the first dance.

    In the days after the wedding, even though Claire was super busy with other events, we got sent our sneak peak!
    we was so shocked and amazed with how quick she was at sharing them with us, other photographers you would be waiting a long time for any pictures - but not Claire!

    then 4 weeks after the day, we got all our images sent online and home in a beautifully packaged gift in the post, Claire personalised our delivery and gift box and it honestly, is the attention to detail that she puts into everything that really made it.

    We honestly cannot wait for an excuse to book Claire again, we got the most amazing photos to remember our long awaited day, a day that previous was clouded by Covid memories and lockdown sadness, now is a day that we all spent celebrating and being joyful together, and i could think of no better person to capture those moments, than Claire.

    we thank you endlessly!

    Lauren, Chris & Noah Mulcahy
