CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"There are not enough words to explain how much of an absolute JOY it was to have Clara as our photographer. Clara was able to capture the essence of our personalities and relationship in both our engagement and wedding photos. Not only was she exceptional to work with, but she also managed to capture every memorable event that happened at our ceremony/reception that I missed during the day. Finding all of the surprises in our wedding photos was one of the most fun memories I have to be able to reflect on the day! I cannot imagine going through this season of life without her by our side. She’s not only an amazing photographer, but also a genuine and intentional individual who you would be missing out on if she wasn’t involved on your special day. Thank you, thank you, thank you for capturing us so well!

We love you!"

"Clara is the best in the business! She’s wonderful to work with and she makes sure to capture every moment. She’s perfect at what she does! She captured the most amazing photos of our wedding adventure! Love her."

"Clara was so easy to work with, and she did an awesome job capturing our engagement photos and wedding day perfectly! We couldn't have asked for more! She is a perfectionist, which is a wonderful quality to have in a photographer! She is hands down the BEST!"

- Magen Alexander -

"There are not enough words for me to explain how awesome Clara and her team are. Her pictures can speak for themselves (because they are obviously breathtaking), but Clara is also laid back and flexible (very important to help keep you from stressing. She really helped me stay calm all day), super sweet, and they are all very patient and fun people to be around. They handle everything perfectly, including rambunctious boys, uncooperative dogs, and family drama. She’s also very good at helping you decide where and what pictures to take, and also how to pose for pictures if you’re as awkward as us haha. And she did this all while pregnant! I more than recommend her!"

"There are not enough words to explain the gratitude I have for Clara!  She took all of my dreams for engagement and wedding photos and made them real life and then some! I look forward to looking back on these images you created for Armon and me for years to come! Your work is truly one of a kind and the Momenpours cannot thank you enough for all that you have done!"

- Cassie Momenpour -

"My husband and I reached out to Clara shortly before our wedding. We just wanted a small simple wedding, but wanted to make it more special than just a quick courthouse kind of thing. Clara was amazing! She was very quick on responding to us and very willing to work with us, even given that it was such short notice! She was very excited! So wonderful to work with her! She was unobtrusive during our short ceremony, and simply amazing during the photos afterwards! Especially knowing my husband is a bit camera shy. He also made the comment after how great she was! We got the photos quickly, and they are beautiful! I couldn't be happier with what she did. Very communicative before and afterwards. I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much, Clara!!!"

"I am so pleased with my family's pictures with Clara! She made us feel at ease and not rushed at all. She made my children feel comfortable and pretty much let them just do what they wanted and she did the hard work. She sent me some beautiful pictures to pick from and has been very patient with me deciding, always checking in and answering all my questions before I even asked them. Thank you Clara, I can't wait until our next session in February!!!"

"We had the best time working with Clara!! She did an amazing job capturing this special time in our lives! We have already talked about booking a newborn session for our sweet little bundle when he arrives!!"

- Morgen Burnette -

"Our family has never had professional photos done before so this was a leap of faith for us. Clara was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was on time for our session and delivered our gallery in the promised time frame. She is wonderful with children and helped us and our kids feel at ease. The images she captured are true treasures! It was difficult to choose which pictures I liked the best and I can't wait to have them printed.  She was incredibly patient with all of my questions and emails over concerns of a fake smile from my daughter and what color outfits photograph the best. I never once felt as if I were bothering her and I can tell she truly loves what she does.  It was a truly enjoyable experience and I will definitely use Clara again."

- Nancy Wilson -

"What a wonderful experience to work with Clara! She was so patient with our family, and what amazing images she captured!! The images were beautiful, yet natural and captured the personalities of each member of my family."

- Whitney Wright -

"I cannot brag enough about Clara's work! Everyone thinks their children are beautiful, but wow did she prove it to me! Our outdoor session will definitely be an annual event and I can't wait for her to "capture" my girls as they grow up. I highly recommend Clara...you will thank me for it!"

- Katie King -

"Clara did an amazing shoot for us. Imagine two young children with all of our family at the beach. She encouraged the children to be themselves and have fun. They did and the pictures were amazing. She captured personalities from everyone. The colors were beautiful. I highly recommend her. We will use her again!!!!"

- Sharon Hobson -

"We had such a fun time with Clara during our photo session. Kids are sometimes hard to work with but Clara was a champ! She is such a pleasant person to work with & my pictures turned out AWESOME. I wanted Clara to do our family pictures because each session she does is different & fits the people she's photographing. My pictures definitely reflect the personality of my family. Thank you again & I look forward to working with you in the future! Keep up the great work."

- Andrea Haynes -
