From the moment we stumbled across Claire’s website (Woodland Hill Photography) we noticed instantly the gulf in quality from the many other sites we visited, and upon meeting Claire for the first time, we had both made up our minds before we’d even left her house.

Claire is a lively (crazy??), enthusiastic and passionate professional who obviously oozes creative talent and is constantly dreaming up new shots with every blink… you can almost hear her brain continuously churning! The result is amazing and beautiful photography for which we will be eternally grateful as we look over our wedding photos. She has managed to tell the story of our whole day (and before with the pre-wedding shoot) with a superbly presented DVD and there were little touches such as cards on the tables with different images from our pre shoot.

I would find it hard to imagine anyone who wouldn’t instantly connect with Claire who’s enthusiasm draws you in, and I would advise going to see Claire on an empty stomach as the homemade cupcakes and minirolls (especially if you have children) will inevitably make an appearance.

There are so many photographers offering different packages, some doing the whole lot with albums for crazy cheap prices but I would urge anyone not to gamble with their special day. Claire keeps it simple and clear and even takes the time to learn the names of your guests to help the day run that much smoother – she’ll even help you put your dress on. But above all, the quality, style and sheer talent is far superior to many other photographers and believe me, I’ve been to a fair few weddings recently!

Claire, we couldn’t have been happier with the photos from our wedding but I think we already knew that they would be superb. You have a great talent and you certainly know how to work the crowd and organise everyone and this in turn made for a perfect, seamless day that ran like clockwork. We didn’t have to worry once about time, running late or waiting about.

I could write all day about how amazing our wedding photos are but I will leave you with this: Claire doesn’t just take photographs; she captures memories and turns them into art!

Thanks Claire
Nick & Jane (Wedding 22 October 2011)
