The little things really are the big things - a bride deserves to feel her most beautiful & confident self and I will do my best to be sure that happens. Nothing fills me with more joy than getting the opportunity to be apart of one of the most special days of your life.

It’s pancakes on the kitchen floor at midnight. It’s a two-person dance party on the roof of the parking garage. It’s snuggling in for a sunset at the spot where you had your first date. The way your hands fit together just right. The way they look at you when you laugh. Promising forever with the mountains as your witnesses.

I’m here to capture the small, fleeting, ordinary, extraordinary moments that make up a life and a love story - not just how they looked, but how they felt. When you look back at your photos, you’ll feel the honesty and the intimacy that takes you back to the moment and reminds you of the life you’re building together, one tiny moment at a time. 

Your full, authentic self is always welcome here.

In the words of Henry David Thoreau, “It’s not about what you look at. It’s what you see.” I believe in photographing those little things you might not even notice that capture your flow as a couple. The in-between moments, glances, crinkle-eye smiles, goosebumps. There’s nothing more beautiful and fascinating to me than the pure joy, excitement, and comfort of two people wildly in love. 

There’s no need for perfect poses, perfect weather, perfect outfits, or a perfect location to capture the perfect memory. It’s about a snapshot in time - those photos that allow you to hold a feeling in your hands.

N E V E R Underestimate Styled by Claire! Seriously, Claire is the bridal hairstylist dreams are made of. From the booking process to the day of the wedding, working with Claire was seamless and easy. I met her for the first time at my trial run, I’m a little anxious when meeting new people but I felt like Claire, and I had been friends for years! She truly is as beautiful inside as she is out! .... They said she radiated such amazing energy. She was funny, gentle, and very patient. I honestly couldn’t agree more....Now the bridal hair was next level. I’ve had my hair styled before, but it has never been as perfect as when Claire styled my hair. It was truly everything I wanted and more. It stayed perfect that whole day (and even the next day). When having Claire there, you’re really getting more than just hair. I was anxious that morning and Claire was truly my hype woman! I couldn’t have imagined my wedding day without her. If you’re looking to book a hairstylist, I hope you’re lucky enough to book with Claire.

"never underestimate styled by claire"

"Claire did a wonderful job on our hair for my wedding day. From the trial, we did two hairstyles, and she was patient and attentive to my needs. I have ethnic, textures hair and she was able to work well with it. It was 105 degrees on my wedding day with an outdoor ceremony and reception and my hair held the WHOLE time. Overall, I would highly recommend Claire for you wedding hair style. She is very skilled and cares a lot for her clients"

"Bridezilla wasn't a thing for me with Claire as my wedding hair stylist. She has a calming effect on you. She wasn't just personable but also down to earth, Not knowing your stylist can oftentimes feel awkward but not with Claire. You can tell not only by pictures but also in person that she puts love into every hairstyle she does! Every single one of my bridesmaids hair was absolutely stunning!! I would recommend Styled By Claire over & over & over again!"

"Claire was absolutely amazing. I was very Claire made sure we were on schedule. She was very organized and made my hair goals come to life. My hair was secure all day & night through rain and shine! All my bridal party loved their hair as well! I can't recommend her enough to all other brides looking for their dream bridal hairstylist. Claire is such a sweet and talented artist!!! I can't wait to book her for future events!!"
