My desire is for you to feel genuine, in the moment, while delivering artistic, motion-based shots that are full of life. Less standing, more moving; More laughing, less forced smiles. We will implement meaningful details, embracing what's around us in nature, the imperfections – grabbing the perfect memory in time.
Your photographer, especially for a wedding day, will be one of the main people you spend your entire day with besides your partner - sunrise to sunset. It's best to feel a connection with whoever you choose!
The best thing to do is reach out, and inquire through my contact page! Once I have received your inquiry, I will reach out to you through email within two business days to answer those questions + get things rolling through a
Time for our phone call! I heavily value phone convos with my clients, as it is an incredible tool to efficiently discuss questions, scheduling, and more, but I more so value hearing voices, general personalities, the vibes!! - truly a great tool on both sides of the investment!
Once the details are sorted, it is time to book! Simply sign a customized contract, pay a deposit to seal your date, and anticipate the upcoming scheduled session or wedding day you've been planning your entire life.
Between booking and our scheduled session or wedding date, I will reach out multiple times with information that is helpful for you in preparation.
Especially for a wedding day, there are a million details that are easy to pass over. I am here to ensure that you feel confident in yourself, but also confident in me and my abilities on your wedding day.
Let's get you photographed!!
"We LOVE Claire, she is so kind and patient. My daughter absolutely loved her, and we can't wait to get our next family photos done with her! Claire's ability to be so personal and friendly and make us feel like family. It was so easy, and Claire is the best communicator! 10 X10000000000!!! - We heart Claire!!"
"Claire is the kindest person. She will fulfill your needs through the photo she takes, and make it such a comfortable experience. I have found my forever photographer! Everything was so straightforward, and she was excellent at making sure the lighting was perfect. She handled her camera so well. I love Claire!
"I have done numerous sessions with Claire because of my continued positive experience and love for her work. Claire does an amazing job at being proactive, encouraging confidence within her clients, and returning thoughtfully crafted galleries. She never falters to think of prompts for the settings we were in! Claire Hope Photo is the best!!!"
For regular sessions, you will receive a sneak peak within 2-3 business days of a handful of images for that extra excitement! Your full gallery will be delivered within 3-4 weeks.
For weddings, you will also receive a sneak peak within 2-3 business days; Post those baddies for the world to see! Your full gallery will then be delivered within 6-8 weeks after your date.
Reach out to a photographer as soon as you can! Even if you are looking at a season multiple months away, grabbing your spot on a photographers calendar will be extremely valuable.
Especially for wedding photography, I personally believe you should find your photographer first after your venue; The wedding photography industry can be slim if you are reaching out to photographers close to your date.
YES! I am always happy to work around you and your needs.
For wedding photography, I would love to work around your budget, needs, and whatever else you are looking for. We can hop on a call, and you can tell me everything about your day for me to in turn produce you a custom quote. This applies to all session types as well.
I deliver all galleries on an easily accessible online gallery service, that walks you through the entire program; You can create favorite lists, notes, download images, watch a slideshow, send your gallery to family + friends, and more.
I also offer additional delivery services such as handheld flash-drives, which you can store safely for an extra copy of your gallery or to share with family + friends who aren't as tech savvy!
