Claire is the best decision we made while planning our wedding. She was super responsive, flexible, funny and incredibly easy to work with. We knew that the photos would be the one thing we could cherish forever and Claire made sure that they were perfect.
I cannot recommend Claire enough for your big day!
Claire met and exceeded all of our expectations. I have a lot of friends who are professional photographers and my standards are very high. It was important to me to have someone that made me comfortable (awkward photos are the worst!), who listened to my wants & needs, and who could capture incredible images. I’m glad that we did an engagement session with Claire before our wedding so that we could get to know each other more and be that much more comfortable. not only are her images stunning, but her editing and color work are out of this world. The worst part of the process is having to choose which photos to print and to turn into an album because there are thousands of incredible photos. I’d highly recommend working with Claire!
Great photography was one of the top priorities for our wedding, and Claire delivered spectacular memories! She’s also remarkably easy to work with, which is a “must have” from a photographer with all the other delightful chaos of a wedding.
-Sarah & Justin
Claire is great! We immediately felt very comfortable with Claire and were able to relax and have fun with throughout the whole process. She was very organized and open to any requested we had. Her photographs were absolutely beautiful and each one is a masterpiece to enjoy for years to come! Claire is very professional and a pleasure to work with!
Claire came recommended to us from a friend. We were a little skeptical since we had never heard of her before, but our fears were quickly laid to rest. From day one, Claire exceeded our expectations with her consummate professionalism. On our wedding day, we were blown away with her ability to capture every moment. When we thought, “Where is Claire? This would be a great photo!” She was already there getting the shot. We thought she did a great job on our wedding day, but once we got the photos that is when it became crystal clear that Claire is a true artist. Not only were the photos beautiful, but she made it so personal and easy to access and share with our loved ones. Two words of advice after working with Claire. Hire her. We definitely recommend her and hope to work with her again in the future.
Claire’s work is amazing! We loved our engagement and wedding pictures. She’s professional and knows how to get the best shot. We could not have asked for a better experience for our pictures!
-Matt & Michelle
Claire and Andy were so fabulous, they went above and beyond to make every moment of our wedding perfect. They managed to capture each part of our day incredibly. Everyone who looks at our pictures says they feel as if they are there. The video left us speechless. It was everything we could have wanted out of our wedding video and more. Photos and videos of a wedding are so important and Claire and Andy are the perfect duo to exceed anyone’s expectations.
-Blake & Lorin
Claire Marika Photography was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. Claire was very easy to work with, knowledgeable, and made us feel so comfortable throughout every step. The photographs captured the most intimate and detailed moments of our wedding in such a beautiful and unique way. From engagement photos, to the wedding, to albums, Claire’s work made everything simply amazing. We cannot say enough great things about Claire and her work. We look forward to working with her throughout all of our life events. Thank you, Claire!
-Stacey & Jake
Claire was so much more than we could have asked for. Honestly. I would refer to all of my friends and family. She is like that best kept secret that you don’t want other people to hear about lest her prices skyrocket through the roof. After meeting with what felt like an endless number of potential photographers, we found Claire. Her professionalism and passion for what she does shines in her work. Most of all, her overwhelming talent far exceeds anything you will find for your special occasion. If I could talk to anyone considering hiring Claire face to face I would jump up and down and tell them that they would be crazy to pass on the opportunity to use her. Your photos will be passed down for generations to come. You want someone as gifted as Claire taking them. She perfectly captured the beauty and joy of our wedding.
-David & Melissa
I had an absolute wonderful experience with Claire from the beginning. Photography was the most important thing to me when it came to our wedding and she was a perfect choice. She was extremely easy to get a hold of on a moments notice and she was flexible when needed. She was very easy to get along with which made me feel more comfortable when taking pictures. She went above and beyond to work with me on the big to the small things. Not to mention all of our pictures turned out absolutely stunning. I couldn’t recommend her more!
That Claire is an extremely talented photographer was a given; we had seen her work and admired wedding photos of friends. What she proved to us was not only how much professional courtesy matters to her — showing up on time, communicating timelines and getting back to us promptly — but also how much a love of what she does and her genuine kindness really make all the difference. We really can’t image our wedding without her! Thank you, Claire!
-Kathryn & Bob
I picked up Claire’s info from a bridal expo and my fiancé and I decided to meet with her based on how impressed we were with the pictures on her website. She came to the meeting with many photo books and examples of her work, which were all excellent. Claire made a great first impression – she was on time, professional, very outgoing and happy to answer all our questions. We decided to book her with a custom package, which was very reasonably priced, and I’m so happy we did. All of our impressions of her from our initial meeting held true through the whole process. I actually never had to get a hold of Claire with any questions, she initiated contact with me either just to check in, or remind me of the due dates for the shot list, final payment, etc., which I really appreciated since I had so many deadlines and dates in my head.
The day of the wedding she and the second photographer showed up right on time and made sure everything went smoothly – they made sure to get all the shots I requested and had some great ideas for poses and backgrounds. Nothing felt forced or obtrusive. The next day she had a few pictures for me to preview, along with sending me an email letting me know the timeframe for getting all the pictures back (which was 6 weeks). Exactly 6 weeks later I had the online gallery of all the shots and the disks were in the mail, just like she had promised. We couldn’t have been happier with the pictures she took, they’re amazing and we’re so excited to get our completed album and hang our favorites.
Overall a wonderful experience with Claire Marika Photography, I would highly recommend her.
-Amanda & Justin
With all the stress that comes from planning and preparing for a wedding, it was comforting to know that our photographs were going to turn out amazing without us having to worry about it. Both Claire and Andy are extremely talented, yet so easy to work with at the same time. We don’t know what we would have done without them! They are such a dynamic duo and so much fun to work with. Both of them compliment and feed off each other to produce breath-taking photos. Our special day could not have been captured more perfectly. We especially love how candid the photos turned out. They make us feel as if we were actually a part of the moment without being obtrusive. Thank you so much for all of your hard work Claire & Andy!
-Nicole & Jason
When I was looking for a wedding photographer I was really worried about finding one that fit our style. There were a lot of different tastes and styles out there and I was afraid we wouldn’t find someone we both liked. We met Claire at a bridal fair. Immediately I sensed something different. She wasn’t trying to sell herself to me. She was very low pressure and let me look through her photos without making me feel like I needed to decide right away. She was the only vendor that stood out to me leaving that bridal fair. We did our research and kept coming back to Claire. She had a beautiful website and her photography was classy and we felt like it really captured the people she photographed. She wasn’t posing people but rather catching them in their natural element. I set up a meeting with Claire and again, felt low pressure and like I had made a new friend. She is very personable while being professional also. Once I booked Claire, I never had to worry about photography again. She was so on top of things. She contacted me in advance of Bridals and Wedding to double check we had everything ready and set up. She was organized and very quick to get back to me and return our photos. I would absolutely work with Claire again and I plan on recommending her to family and friends that are getting married. She was the least stressful part of my wedding and I loved working with her!
My wedding was absolutely the happiest day of my life: there were so many magical moments that I wanted to relive. Claire and Andy perfectly captured the joy of the day! They seemed to be everywhere I wanted. Every moment that was important to me (and so many others!) made it in the gorgeous photos and the sweet video. We loved the combination of still shots and the video because the memories are so complete.
Claire is absolutely delightful to work with. She helped me to think through what I wanted ahead of time and she was there every step of the way. She was never in the way of the spontaneous, but she still knew how to command a crowd (what a great combo!). She’s incredibly professional and so is the quality of her work, but she’s also personable and encouraging–just what a bride needs. We could not be more thrilled or grateful for the beautiful way she captured our special day!
We absolutely loved working with Claire! She was everything we wanted in a wedding photographer, and then some. Our experience working with Claire was nothing but positive. We loved how friendly and personable she was, and how open she was to new ideas and working with us. She is very organized and always willing to talk about questions or concerns. Her style is beautiful and I know she truly cares about her clients and does her very best. We highly recommend Claire!
–Kendra & Aktar
Claire was fantastic and everything we were expecting from a wedding photographer and more! She was professional and well rehearsed every step of the way. We feel we received great value based on her prices. She captured fun little details and interacted with our families and guests nicely. She put up with an insanely rainy day without a flaw. She dressed professionally. Her delivery was on time, professional and beautifully packaged. Thanks a million!
-Jon & Mallorie
Claire is absolutely amazing and super easy to work with! Her work is very classy and the presentation of everything is fabulous! I was more than impressed with her work! When I was looking for a photographer I wanted to make sure our money went to good use- and Claire went over the top for us and made sure we were all happy with decisions. Claire will be used for our other weddings and events and we already are telling our friends and family about her and her work. Claire is able to capture everything you want and more! Claire and her husband (video) get your photos and videos back VERY quickly! I was more than pleased with Claire’s photography. I’ll use her again! Everyone… if you are looking for someone you can trust, that is classy, professional and goes over the top, then Claire’s Photography is for you! Loved it!
–Alyssa & Jason
Claire is so professional and easy to work with! She was not only flexible with our schedules, she also took the time to get the shot and make our wedding photos unbelievable! I would recommend Claire to ANYONE who gets married in Utah, she truly goes over the top for you on your big day! Thank you Claire we are still beaming over our photos
-Erin & Damon
We were so incredibly happy with the professional service and end product that we got from Claire. She did a wonderful job organizing people on the day of the wedding, and caught some awesome candid shots to help us remember the parts we otherwise would have missed. Choosing Claire Marika to be our photographer was the best investment of our wedding!
-Megan & Dan
Many of our friends have told us that the pictures of our wedding capture the day perfectly. We couldn’t agree more. Claire caught all of the moments we want to remember forever and the photos turned out beautifully. Both of us are a little camera shy but Claire made everything feel natural and fun. We are very happy with our decision to have Claire capture our wedding.
– Trevor & Julia
Claire did an amazing job capturing my wedding day. We are so happy with our photos and couldn’t have asked for a more professional, helpful, and friendly person to be our photographer! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent photographer!
I was nervous about selecting the right photographer for our wedding since it can be a big expense and it’s really the only wedding expense that lasts beyond the wedding day. So I did a TON of research and compared many photographers in the area. Luckily I came across Claire. Not only was her pricing fair but her portfolio was beautiful and her professionalism was obvious from the beginning. I also loved that I could work with her for both photo and video. She was so responsive to emails and I felt like I had someone else on my side that genuinely cared about making my wedding a day to remember. My husband and I were completely sold after we both had such a fun experience shooting the engagement photos (something we were both nervous about). Then to top it off, within a few hours of getting home Claire had already edited a few shots for us that same night and we loved them! From that point we were positive we made the right choice for our wedding photography. The night of the wedding, guests were commenting on what great moments and video coverage were being caught by the photographer and videographer and we have gotten so many compliments on the photos and video in the months following our wedding. I feel like I could go on and on but to sum it up – I am a raving fan and would highly recommend Claire and use her again without a doubt! The little touches like the follow up thank you card and package we received from her since the wedding just go to show how much she really cares and loves what she does.
We are really happy with the choice we made to go with Claire Marika Photography. We are so thankful for the fantastic work you did and grateful for the time you guys spent with us on our special day. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better who was willing to accommodate our special requests! Thanks so much again!!!
-Sunny & Braden
Claire takes beautiful pictures. Not only were my husband and I thrilled with the portraits she took of us, she was also so attentive to all the little side-stories going on throughout the wedding day. Nieces and nephews dancing, special moments between my mom and I, etc. Most wedding photographers would not get the facial reactions of onlookers to immediate events, but Claire does. She did a fantastic job. She was also so easy to work with from beginning to end: even though she was in Utah and I was in California until the day of the wedding. She offered expert advice and was eager for our opinions as well. Thanks to her, we have more than enough gorgeous pictures of our wedding day.
-Emily & Chuck
We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer than Claire! She was great to work with and we love our wedding photos.
-Brandon & Nicole
Claire photographed our wedding ceremony, reception, and bridal photos. She did an amazing job at capturing all the details I expected from her at our Laotion/Thai traditional wedding. We didn’t have a american wedding which most photographers would be used to. We had many cultural differences, but she was very open minded and learned what was important to us.
Our bridal shoot was at Thanksgiving point which she had recommended and I could not be happier with these photos. She guided my husband and I through different poses and scenery. The editing was not too photo shopped which I appreciated. She just brought out the natural beauty in the greenery surrounding us and highlighted the sun for a nice glow.
I was recommended to her by my sisters friend who flew her out to work on their wedding in Mexico and I was very excited when I saw their photos. I definitely recommend her to anyone who wants quality work!
-Jenny & Chris
Claire Marika shot my engagements and wedding photos, and I would recommend her for any type of photography! She shot my engagements in Park City and my Wedding in St. George. Claire has a natural eye for any scene, and made my husband and I feel absolutely stunning in all our photos. My family and friends now have an amazing photographer for all the special moments throughout the rest of our lives. She was fabulous to work with and delivered on everything we ever wanted! Thanks Claire!
Claire was great to work with. She made both of us feel very comfortable while taking pictures and she also did a great job with getting our photos to us quickly. She was very flexible with time and the quality of the photos was awesome. The edits were even more amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Highly recommended.
-Kenzie & Ned
Oh my how I LOVE our photos! You are fabulous! Thank you so much. We had a great time and you captured us perfectly!
We worked with Claire for our wedding in September. The most difficult vendor to choose was by far the photographer, mostly because there are SO MANY to choose from and they are responsible for documenting the most memorable day of our lives so we wanted someone who knew what they were doing. We saw Claire at a bridal show and she was the first photographer booth we came to. I was so impressed with her work but I didn’t have anything to really compare it to. After seeing probably 100+ other photographers we decided on Claire for both photography and videography. Claire and her husband were so great to work with! They were always able to work with our schedules and were prompt with getting us our finished products. She is easy to get in touch with and responds to emails super quick! I would recommend Claire to anyone! Also – the canvas wrapped photos and the albums were very high quality. Very impressed!
-Morgan & Adam
Claire was a gem to work with! She gave us extremely timely responses and was extremely thorough in making sure every detail of our big day was accounted for. As a busy bride, it was so helpful to have a vendor that was so easy to work with. A great choice for your special day!
As soon as we saw Claire’s portfolio we knew she had the style and professional touch we were looking for. What made the situation even better was the fact that she provided the high quality we hoped for at a price we could afford. On our wedding day she knew exactly how to manage our large families and get all of us in position for photos despite the chaos. She was always punctual, flexible, patient, and enthusiastic to deliver what we wanted. Our photos arrived promptly after our honeymoon and proved to be a beautiful reminder of the most special day of our lives.
-Tia & Kent
THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything you have done for us! We LOVE the album, it is gorgeous. I think it will become a family heirloom for our kids and grandkids. You have been so kind and helpful and professional, and so quick getting everything done. You were absolutely a pleasure to work with and I am so happy that we chose you to be our wedding photographer.
I came across Claire at a bridal show quite a few months before our wedding date and we immediately decided we’d love for her to photograph our wedding. We’d talked to quite a few photographers before hand and I actually had someone in mind (that I thought I was settled on) that I planned on seeing at the show. Well we decided not to book with them and saw Claire and Andy a couple of aisles down and had the greatest first impression. She was so sincere and genuinely nice that it was hard not to want to work with her! You could tell that she and Andy knew what they were doing and they had such reasonable prices that without a doubt, we knew we’d found our photographer.
Fast forward through a 14-month engagement and Claire was always incredibly professional yet personal throughout the entire process. She always answered any questions we had extremely quickly and never hesitated to help us through a ton of stuff we had no idea about. Our engagement session is still one of my favorite parts of the whole journey, and we received so many compliments on our wedding album and video. They were great at involving the subjects of the pictures when they had to and being invisible when they needed to be. I can honestly say that our experience with them was one of the best out of our entire wedding. Thank you SO much Claire and Andy for being so great at what you do!
-Lily & Andy
Choosing Claire Marika Photography was one of the best decisions I made while planning my wedding. You were extremely accommodating; helping me find unique locations for my bridals and engagements and making sure I got the types of pictures I wanted. The end results were beautiful, professional, and beyond my expectations. Your photos perfectly captured the personality and joy of my wedding day, and I will treasure them for the rest of my life.
By biggest fear when searching for a photographer was getting poor quality photographs and not having one of the biggest days of my life captured in a special way. Claire quickly proved my fears to be wrong, but surpassed any expectations I ever had. The pictures I have are amazing and are something I will treasure for a lifetime. I was always worried about scheduling because my wedding was in the middle of prime wedding season and also because I am a full time student and work part time. Again, Claire was amazing and was very flexible with her scheduling. During our scheduled times I felt like I was her number one priority. While I wish money wasn’t a factor, it is in today’s world. I wanted a quality photographer but didn’t want to pay and arm and a leg for one. I feel like you pay for what you get and Claire’s services were reasonably priced and again the photos were amazing.
Working with Claire was such a positive and upbeat experience. You knew right away that she has a passion for photography and realizes that your wedding day is special. I loved how she listened to what I wanted and didn’t want and always responded to my emails literally within 10 minutes sometimes. She was always on time to any scheduled meetings and always came prepared. Working with her was not stressful, but a pleasure. Photography was never something that I had to worry about on my wedding day.
If I were to recommend Claire to my best friend I would say, “DO IT NOW!!!!!” As mentioned above she was punctual,passionate, and her photographs are absolutely stunning. You won’t be disappointed if you book with Claire.
-Veronica & Drew
Claire was wonderful to work with. We never felt stressed or uncomfortable. Everything was very laid-back. I would 100% recommend her to anyone!
-Natalie & Brandon
Claire and her husband did an excellent job on my daughter’s wedding! We visited many Bridal Fairs before finding Claire. My daughter and I found an instant rapport with both of them. She provided engagement photos, bridal photos, wedding and reception photos. The photo shoots were at various locations and Claire was always prompt and ready to go every time. I purchased a parent’s album and a large canvas wrapped photo for the reception. All I did was choose the pictures I wanted for the album and Claire did the rest. The result was absolutely fabulous and second-to-none. Working with Claire was a pleasure and I plan on purchasing more photos from her. The video of my daughter’s special day was precious. I will always call Claire for any of my future photo needs and recommend her for any occasion you may be needing an awesome photographer!!
I’m speechless! These photos are fantastic! We’ve been looking at them all night and just can’t decide which ones we like the best. It’ll be hard to choose which ones to print. I love them all! Thanks again for this wonderful experience.
-Michael & Amanda
Claire has such a great artistic eye! Her photography is both beautiful and charming while maintaining a unique style. She and Andy were fun and easy to work with and were great at capturing our personalities. We’ve had so many compliments on our photos and couldn’t be happier with the work they did.
-Leslie & Brandon
Wow. We are seriously BLOWN AWAY by our bridal video. I fell in love with how in love Matthew and I look in this video. The song is absolutely perfect. We love it! It was all your awesome work that makes us look so great. Really, it gave me the chills and I almost started crying. It will definitely be a video that we’ll go back and watch again and again for years. Thank you so much from the both of us!
I couldn’t possibly recommend working with Claire more. She is extremely patient and easy to work with. Before our engagement session, Claire was very responsive and worked with me to choose a location to fit the aesthetic we were looking for. Claire has beautiful personal taste, too, so even when I handed over control to her, I knew I could trust her to get the classically beautiful images we were looking for. During our shoot, she gave us lots of direction and helped us feel comfortable and relaxed. The pictures turned out beautifully, too! We had almost 200 images to choose from, and everyone remarked at how incredible all of them were. After seeing how amazing our engagements pictures were, I can’t wait to see what Claire will capture at the wedding!
We loved working with Claire and Andy! They did a great job working together to capture every moment of our wedding. We love how all the photos and videos turned out from the engagements to the bridals to the wedding day. They are both very talented and we couldn’t be more pleased with the memories we have of our special day. They are are so easy going and great to work with. We are glad we went with Claire Marika Photography and recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer.
-Natalie & Matt
Claire, I’m so grateful that you were my wedding photographer. We were able to get really lovely and creative images of our reception, luncheon–everything. You had a great eye for capturing the pretty little details of the day. Thank you for noticing what was important, and for preserving the fun and beauty of our wedding day! You’re awesome!
We love our wedding photos! They were absolutely stunning!! We’ve had such great compliments on our pictures. Our family, friends, and guests all told us that our pictures looked like they came out of a high end magazine. Claire and Andy were AMAZING! Their eye for detail and candid moments were captivating. They definitely will be our go-to photographers. Thank you so so much!
-Saran & Elias
Claire and Andy were so wonderful to work with! They were fun and friendly and did a wonderful job making us all feel comfortable. They were also really flexible and accommodated a hectic schedule and my large family—all while staying totally calm! Claire came to our wedding venues the day before to take pictures of my fiancé and me and of our families so that our wedding day wouldn’t be so busy. She had great ideas for poses and locations. Claire’s photography and Andy’s videography were fantastic. I love how their work has such great personality, lighting, and color. They really captured the mood and theme we wanted. I was especially grateful for their skill shown in the candid photos at our wedding breakfast and reception. I’m so glad we chose Claire Marika Photography for our wedding. I recommended her for my sister’s wedding as well, and she and Andy did another superb job.
You won’t find better value and quality than Claire Marika Photography. Working with Claire is fun, and she is so responsive, friendly, flexible and open to how you want your photos taken. Ordering a wedding video was completely worth it too–having our day captured on video was one of the best decisions we made.
-Rhett & Emily
Claire Marika photography was fabulous. She/They captured perfect photos and videos for all my needs, my mix book, pictures for the walls in our home, my photo album, Pintrest, YouTube, Facebook, and others. I get comments all the time on how beautiful people felt after being photographed by her and how grateful they are for the video and pictures. ..couldn’t be more pleased.
-Tamee & Jeff
We had a Rockabilly wedding and wanted a photographer that could share our vision. Claire and Andy did an incredible job of capturing exactly what we wanted. They were so great about getting the candid shots that we wanted and the video turned out amazing. Andy captured so many of the best moments and pieced it together beautifully. Claire really has an eye for the intimate details. I love how they can draw inspiration from each other. We get so many compliments on our pictures. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you both for making our day so unforgettable!
