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.
