You know that feeling when you look around yourself, breathe deeply, and think, “Holy shit. I love right now.”

 

That’s what I want for you on your elopement day.

 

Over the past 7 years, I’ve documented love stories all across the United States. No matter the geographic location, that feeling of connection–to each other, to the present moment, and to the landscape around us– is what inspires my work.

 

But, before I get ahead of myself, I figure if I’m asking you to invite me to help tell your story, it’s only fair I share mine first!

 

Hey! I’m Anna Claire.

I love a good journal, especially when paired with a blustery fall morning and a hot cuppa. I’ve tried and failed to eat vegetarian like 10 times. I’ve spent many many nights sleeping under the stars with people I love, and I hold those memories close.

I get to do life with my best friend, Danny. We met in high school, and chose to co-human for the rest of our existence. My relationship with him is what informs so much of my work; it teaches me about the importance of quiet moments and pillow talk and hand-holds in a tent with morning rays beaming down. It’s taught me that every relationship has good and bad and hard and easy and this complexity and vulnerability is what makes us human.

Seeing photos of us doing life together makes me feel all the things.

That’s what I want for you.

 

When you hire me, you’re getting more than just a photographer to show up and snap some pretty photos (don’t worry, pretty photos are a given!). Instead, you’re getting an Elopement-Planning, Location-Scouting pal to help you throughout the entire planning process. Whether you already have a location in mind or you’re planning from scratch, together we will craft the perfect day; This process is a collaboration, and with my years of experience combined with dozens of pages of Client Guides, Location & Itinerary Recommendations, and Questionnaires I’ll send your way, we will tailor this experience completely to you and your relationship.

 

Think of me as your personal photojournalist, creatively documenting your most special moments.

We had the pleasure of working with Anna Claire in June of 2020, after we had to cancel our traditional May wedding due to the pandemic. We decided to elope rather than postpone and ended up doing so very last minute and with minimal preparations. Anna Claire was super flexible and accommodated us the best she could. We had talked to her on the phone before the big day, but had not met her in person or “virtually”. The morning of our wedding was the first time we saw her. She was very personable and easy going. My then fiancé and I immediately felt comfortable around her! She took absolutely beautiful pictures of our wedding day and was so discreet we almost forgot she was there! She provided occasional guidance and made suggestions, but was never intrusive or we never felt like the charm and romance of the day was broken or interrupted. The results were incredibly candid, natural and romantic photographs, which is exactly what we were looking for. I feel I can relive the moments every time I look at them. She captured all the emotions and immortalized them. She did such a good job “documenting” the day that many family members and friends said they felt like they had witnessed our elopement first hand and not just through photos. During the time she spent with us, Anna Claire also went above and beyond what we expected of her as a photographer. For example, she helped me get ready and buttoned up my dress, which was no easy task! She also kindly offered to carry around a bottle of champagne and a heavy rug we were going to use as “prop”- in addition to all of her gear! - while my fiancé and I hiked to our ceremony location. Anna Claire was with us late the night of the wedding and, yet, somehow, the sneak peak were in my inbox when we woke up the next morning. We didn’t expect them and she must have worked very hard to get them out to us. It was a truly amazing touch. They made us so happy! In the end, the pics came out gorgeous and she managed to make me feel and look beautiful. We received many many compliments on our photos. I couldn’t have asked for more. HIRE HER. SHE IS AMAZING! YOU WON’T REGRET IT!

We (my Bride and I) seriously cannot recommend Anna Claire enough. We were drawn to her because of her incredible skill and her selfless support of our ideas. She weaves flexibility into her schedule in order to host adventure sessions for her clients at some of the most beautiful locations in the country, which allows for an extremely fun and personal experience while capturing engagement photos or portraits with your partner. She also supported us in our decision to have an unconventional wedding, and she helped capture it through her great dedication and thoughtfulness as a photographer. She is professional but also ridiculously fun, and did whatever it took to take care of us throughout the whole experience, from wedding advice to shared conversation over a meal of breakfast burritos to carrying 6 different cameras on our wedding day. The photos are honest and beautiful and romantic and more than anything we imagined. Choosing Anna Claire as a photographer was easily the best decision we made for our intimate wedding, aside from choosing to marry each other (obviously). We cannot recommend her enough, truly!!!

AC's attention to detail and genuine love for humans shines in her work. Every time I look at photos from my wedding day I relive the entire day moment-to-moment because AC captured the energy on camera, it is palpable through the photos. She is flexible: our wedding went from an elopement session in Big Bend State Park to an intimate wedding of 30 at the Chisos Mountains Lodge In BB National Park & AC rolled with the flow & helped us narrow down choices and make a schedule. The ceremony was captured beautifully but my favorite part about working with AC was the sunrise photo shoot she planned for us the morning of the ceremony, and the portrait session near the Window Trail overlook right after the ceremony was over. Both of these sessions were incredibly grounding on a day where so much was nerve-driven. AC created a calm, comfortable atmosphere that not only resulted in really special time with my husband, but gorgeous photos to go along with it that we will cherish forever. AC's passion for the land that she shoots on is incredibly inspiring as well. Her knowledge and experiences in the outdoors translate to fearlessness, and an effortless art of melding people to whatever landscape they are surrounded by.
