I love the people. I love the emotion. I love being a part of a couples big day, capturing
all of the details and candid moments"
My name is Clair Estelle and I'm a Photographer.
I feel photography and my appreciation for beautiful pictures has always been a part of me. Growing up
I always loved my stack of magazines and art books, constantly flicking through them, looking at the details, colours and shapes, and how the beauty in photography was formed. Now days, I reside in London in a Live/Work House with my husband Grant and many many books! This is where I spend most of my days working on current and future photography work, planning with couples, editing and remembering the special moments as I go through a series. I enjoying the fact that I run a small business that utilises my intuitive nature and creativity.
I feel extremely lucky.
My style when documenting a wedding day is fairly relaxed and unobtrusive. I like to be present the whole day so I don't miss anything, sometimes I'm so sneaky
my couples don't even know I'm there! Often these are the best moments, the hidden moments, when everyone is completely natural, honest and comfortable with what is going on.
With a history encompassing both photography and graphic design I approach my Wedding, Portrait or Commercial Photography Projects with a designers eye resulting in graphically considered compositions.
I guess another reason why I love my job is because I'm a great story teller and I love telling stories through my pictures :) I come from a family full of story tellers - we all love to have a go! I find great fascination and satisfaction with getting to know and understand the special relationships between people, this is magic stuff, hence why I love to get to know my couples as much as possible before the big day, to hear their story.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to shooting
your story very soon :)
