London documentary wedding photographer


Let me tell your story

My philosophy as a documentary wedding photographer is to give you uninterrupted, natural memories of you and your nearest and dearest on the best day of your life.

You will not hear me say ‘cheese’. Fact. I will help if I think something looks a little off balance, or I might move you into better light but I will never tell you how to act. Kiss, cuddle, laugh, run…whatever you’re feeling in the moment, I’ll be right there to capture it. Behaving like ‘you’ is the absolute best way to get natural photographs on your day.


To have such incredible pictures is such a privilege, but to have a photographer who made the day better with their presence is something so special.

“Claire was absolutely amazing on our wedding day, it was like she was one of the guests. She was so kind, and made us feel so comfortable and confident. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and there were lots of tears looking through. Thank you so much, Claire!”

“Claire was AMAZING! Throughout the whole process she was fantastic at supporting us through our wedding. My first call with Claire was relaxed, light hearted and energetic, she understood the vibe we were going for. On the day Claire was just the DREAM and made everything so easy and made everyone feel totally at ease throughout the whole day. We didn’t want to classic ‘line up’ shots and boy Claire didn’t disappoint, she got us some total crackers! She even emailed us some pictures on the same day! I would 100% work with Claire again and recommend her to everyone, she was totally fantastic!

She is the most friendliest, amazing, professional individual we’ve ever met and would recommend all day every day! The quality and quantity of the photos she took are more than we could ever of dreamt of and she 100% made our wedding day even more special! 10/10! Thank you so so much!”
