Finding Claudia was a fluke, the best fluke of our lives (next to meeting one another of course). Like most people who will be reading this, selecting the perfect photographer to capture our day was one of our most important priorities. Unlike most people however, our engagement and wedding planning timeline was only three months long. Following a full few days of panicked, relentless searching, Claudia’s name came to us through a referral.
On our big day, next to being a photographer, she became many other things; friend, hairdresser, lost property finder, bridal party organiser, mother of the bride tamer, artistic director, you name it, she played it. Her influence over our day was nothing but positive. No aspect of the photography was contrived or painful, she simply slipped inconspicuously in and around the day capturing the most special of moments.
The photographs that she created for us exude personality and preciseness; each and every image has such beauty, depth and emotion. I never tire of looking at them and I never tire of singing her praises to all of those who compliment us on them.
Claudia is truly good at what she does, it’s as simple as that. Her work portrays a passion that can’t be feigned and I can confidently say that for any other important moment in our lives when a photographer may be needed again, it will be her standing by us with camera in hand.
I discovered our photographer, Claudia Rose Carter, through the Little Book For Brides wedding directory – it was a great resource to look through photographers as prior to this, I didn’t know where to start. Claudia’s images are beautiful – not heavily posed and never staged. Her portfolio stood out a mile when looking though photographers with my mum and we just both loved her effortless style. But I was worried that she wouldn’t want to do my small village hall wedding.
It wasn’t until Jonny saw her on my laptop and she also stood out for him that I plucked up enough courage to enquire if she was free to shoot our wedding, and luckily, she was! We just want to say a huge thank you to Claudia for capturing our day. She took some magical images that we both cherish.
We spent hours last night poring over them – I can’t quite believe that we are lucky enough to have such beautiful memories from the day preserved forever! You are so unbelievably talented – I dont think anyone else would have been able to capture all the little details and the range of emotions we all felt that day, it’s like you can feel it radiating from each image!!
I couldn’t recommend Claudia more whole-heartedly. She achieved exactly what we wanted, which was honest, warm, real joyful shots, which are beautiful but not overly manicured or staged.
Claudia was brilliant at both mingling with the guests and also being invisible at the same time (I mean that in a good way!) My brother has already rushed to book her for his wedding.
Claudia we love love love love love them!!!!
