You’re in the right place if the hiking adventure elopement doesn’t feel like what you’re looking for. You just want an intimate experience while planning a day that reflects the two of you perfectly. What if I told you it’s possible to elope in your dream location without a 3+ mile hike? What if you could include as much or as little adventure as you want? What if your day can be a “just us” experience and also include your closest people?

Whether you’re envisioning eloping in the city or an easy outdoor adventure, I’m really not here to tell you how you should elope. I’m here to guide you through all of the possibilities when it comes to planning the day you’re dreaming of.

The location and activities you incorporate into your day will only be a slight reflection on your relationship – tradition or not. The sole focus will be around the two of you becoming one so, together, we will create an experience that you will actually enjoy – your way. It’s my mission to deliver a gallery of timeless, effortless, undeniably-you photos to stand in awe of for a lifetime.

If you are looking for a professional photographer to capture all of life’s special moments, look no further. We booked Claire for our intimate destination wedding in Ridgway, Colorado and could not be happier with our decision. Claire was instrumental in planning and capturing all the special moments of our wedding. As non-Colorado residents, Claire helped us plan the perfect wedding day timeline for our mountainous wedding destination. Her help and guidance creating our wedding timeline relieved all stress we had about planning a wedding without a wedding planner all the way from Washington state. Claire is exceptionally organized, creative, talented, and professional. We were lucky enough to have her capture our engagement photos on the Washington coast. She instantly made us feel warm and comfortable, despite the coastal rain coming down. We felt completely open to being ourselves around her and she captured so many beautiful and authentic photos of our love and family. The whole experience felt fun, stress-free, and easy-going. I loved the way she was able to capture us and the landscape in harmony. Our first experiences with Claire absolutely confirmed that she was the right choice for us.

Claire so beautifully and artfully captured the essence of our love for each other in every photo. Her guidance in posing felt very easy and natural to both of us. Claire has a gift for making her subjects feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her guidance and encouragement made us feel on top of the world and I know our wedding guests felt the same. I lost count of the number of times guests commented on how wonderful Claire is and how much of a talent and eye she has for capturing beautiful moments. We are so, so grateful to Claire for helping make our wedding day everything we could have hoped for and more.

My husband and I cannot recommend Claire enough as a photographer and person. She works with your vision and your ideas and helps them come to life. We quite honestly would have been a little lost planning our wedding without her. The questionnaires, consultations, and timeline she created were so helpful for us to clarify our vision and help her make it come to life. Her attention to detail and ability to capture emotions are unmatched. Claire is incredibly kind, genuine, friendly, approachable, and just an all-around wonderful person to be around. Claire is the perfect combination of professional and genuine. We are awestruck by how beautiful, authentic, and timeless our engagement and wedding photos turned out, and we have the amazing Claire Hunt to thank for that! She far exceeded our expectations, and we are so grateful we put our trust in Claire to capture our big life events!

Claire was hands down the absolute best photographer for the most special day for my husband I. She was so intentional and helpful throughout the whole process leading up to the day of our elopement. The questionnaires that she sent were so intention-filled, they even made my husband and I realize things we wanted for our day that we hadn’t even thought of prior. Claire’s response time was also so great, photographers can be busy and have busy schedules and our experience with other photographers during our searching process made my husband and I feel like we weren’t a priority or like we had been forgotten about but Claire from the very beginning always made us feel very seen, heard, and excited to be a part of our day. Our elopement is the most memorable day of our lives and the timeline that Claire helped us set up was so perfect and felt so stress free and just overall natural like nothing ever felt forced or awkward. Any idea we ever had about our elopement Claire always cheered us on and helped us figure out how to add it into the timeline even if it was last minute. During our elopement my husband and I felt so comfortable with Claire, we felt like we had known her forever and never once felt shy around her, my husband and I always felt like we could be ourselves and it really made our day so special. We love our elopement day, and would not change anything about it in the slightest, and we have Claire to thank for giving us the most beautiful photos we could have ever asked for that we will keep forever. We have shared our gallery with family and friends and every single person always comments on how beautiful our photos are and how special everything truly seemed, and Claire was a big part of that, she not only helped with the process of our magical day but was also the only person that whitenesses our magical day, and on top of that really did capture just how magical everything truly was. If you are looking for more than just a ‘photographer’ but also a friend that will share the joy and excitement that you and your other half share on your special day, hire Claire because I promise you, it’ll make a huge difference and will make your day feel like more than just a ‘photoshoot’. It didn’t feel like she was there “working” it really felt like we had a longtime friend celebrating us and and championing us especially since for our elopement it was just my husband and I and Claire and comfortability and trust was so important to us. Thank you so much Claire! You truly are the best and we truly are so thankful we found you!

If you want to feel like you are waltzing through the best day of your life with an old friend, you HAVE to trust Claire with your photography needs. Our elopement was 1,300 miles away in Glacier National Park, MT. Claire made the process so easy and headache free for us. She scouted BEAUTIFUL locations for our day and even had backup plans for locations, which came in handy when the weather changed so quickly. We only had a little over two months of planning with Claire, as our previous photographer was not able to capture our day suddenly. We feel as though this was a GOD thing. We felt so taken care of with Claire on our team. She even set up a zoom call with us within the tiniest planning window to make sure she didn't miss out on any details that were dear to our hearts.

Like I said before, our day with Claire was perfect. She made us feel beautiful and so special in our little love bubble. Nothing was awkward, or forced. She made sure to protect our boundaries throughout the day and captured every element perfectly! We went into our day with a specific (and lenient) timeline that Claire had planned for us, and things went so smoothly because of this. I never felt rushed or hurried through any special moments I was soaking in, which is so important on such a whirlwind of a day.

We are OBSESSED with our photos. Claire captured the most authentic and raw emotions, of us and our guests. My biggest fear finding a photographer, was that they would not care about capturing those small moments and we would be stuck with only posed photos with less meaning. But she diminished this fear and captured everyone in their natural demeanors because it felt as though we were with our friend all day. I even had two couples from our guests ask me for her information later because they had the fondest interactions with Claire. She is the BEST, I am telling you!!
