Testimonials

Clair Photographed our London Wedding in October 2011. Enlisting Clair’s help was probably the most important and best decision we made throughout the entire wedding planning process.
I cannot speak highly enough of her. She was not just a photographer, but a cheerleader, friend, supporter, organiser and extra bridesmaid and usher all in one. Having her there on the day was like having a super-fun guest who had known us for years following us all day. Like many couples I would guess – we were trying to reduce the time we’d be off having photos done after the ceremony – and were sure we’d be keen to get back to our party. We both found that the photo session with Clair immediately after the ceremony was one of our highlights of the day.

Clair was so sensitive and unobtrusive it felt like really special time together just the two of us as husband and wife.

Clair was really supportive to me while we were getting ready and along with my amazing mum, bridesmaids and hairdresser, kept me calm and balanced all morning. Clair’s whole approach is so refreshing compared to other photographers we met – she wants to understand as much as she can about you both and your relationship and this approach informs everything that she does. The photos of the day are beautiful as I’m sure you can see and we are so pleased we picked her. Andrew + Nicola

Testimonial from Mike and Kellie

I saw Clair in action at a friend's wedding and loved her and her work so much that we flew her to Italy for our wedding. I am so infinitely grateful that we did. Her ability to be inconspicuous and make people relax means that she captures the most gorgeous, spontaneous and real moments of your special day, ones that you didn't even notice. This combined with her calm manner and sense of humour and ability to keep you relaxed mean that you will have a great day! Clair just let us enjoy our photo shoot (because there is nothing is like that first hour after you get married!!), and the pictures show it! Nothing posed and unnatural, just two people bursting with excitement. Her pre-work to find great locations paid off so that we could maximise our time away from our guests. I recommend Clair to everyone I know because I would use her without hesitation all over again. Mike + Kellie

Testimonial from Nick and Karien

Clair is a very professional photographer, who approaches her work with tremendous energy, passion and creativity. She's a people person who treats each client as an individual and uses the connection between her and her clients, between you as a couple and your history, as the basis for developing her concepts and ideas. And she's full of ideas! And if you are up for fun, humour is definitely on the cards :) It's a joy and an inspiration working with her and the photo's turn out amazing, even if you feel you've needed about 10 hours more sleep before your wedding. Thanks Clair! Nick + Karien

Testimonial from Daniel and Laura

I could not recommend Clair highly enough - her work is simply magnificent. We used Clair for our wedding photography and to say she delivered outstanding photos is an understatement - she was fantastic to work with at every stage of the process, was great on the day - very personable, made the process very enjoyable for my wife and I and anyone who loves great photography should go no further - I really can't put into words just how wonderful she is! Daniel + Laura

What a gem. Clair Estelle took the time to understand us and even undertook a full recce of both venues before our wedding day; the restaurant we had our reception in was quite dark and the lighting was challenging but she did a superb job. On the day, she is everywhere but almost invisible, stealthily sneaking around capturing moments with our guests (and us!) that we would have had no possibility of registering with the whirlwind of activity going on. We both pretty much hate having our photos taken but she is so calm, positive and kind that we forgot she was shooting – evidenced by the wide smiles and the occasional faces pulled. The result is a set of images that feels curated, joyful, sentimental and stylish and that we are going to enjoy looking back on. Clair Estelle deserves to do well and we wish her every success. Tim + Kristi

Testimonial from Steve and Louise

Clair Estelle was one of the first things we booked (apart from the venue) at the beginning of all the organisation. Last minute I went to a vintage fair, that I found out about the day before and on seeing Clair's photos I knew instantly that she was the person we wanted to hire for the day. Each of Clair's photos stands as a work of art on its own, regardless of the event and she has an incredible mix of classic and contemporary photos, she also has a lovely way about her and it was just fantastic to have her with us on the day. Steve + Louise

Testimonial from Chris and Elise

Clair was wonderful from start to finish. She was totally engaged in understanding how we wanted our wedding pictures to look, and warm and professional throughout our day. So many of our guests commented on how friendly Clair was, yet she was unobtrusive in her approach. The end results are stunning, both the pictures themselves and Clair's beautiful album design. We will treasure them forever and we could not recommend Clair highly enough! Chris + Elise

Testimonial from Andre and Charlotte

After looking for a while and having no luck we came across Clair Estelle’s website, we knew from the moment we saw her work she was the one for us. Her photographs were really cool and original and we didn’t hesitate to book her straight away! We were not disappointed in the slightest, Clair was amazing on the day and we have so many beautiful photos to treasure for a lifetime, she captured every special moment perfectly without us even knowing our photo was being taken! What’s more she was great with our little boy Zephan and we have an abundance of gorgeous pics of him too. Andre + Charlotte

Testimonial from Ben and Brooke

Clair photographed our wedding years ago, and we look at those photos every day. (The Jumping Photos are hanging up all around the house!) She did a fabulous job capturing our day and I'm happy to see her go from strength to strength with her work these days. Ben + Brooke
