Hi, I'm Claire!

Wedding and lifestyle photographer

Based in Grand Junction on the Colorado, Western Slope, Claire is a photographer and certified drone pilot originally from the UK. She has been living in America for the past 12 years and enjoys riding motorcycles, traveling, photographing nature, and American landscapes. 

From a young age Claire  wanted to explore the world and see where life could take her. After college not knowing what to do for a career she was advised to “go traveling and you will figure it out”. First stop was America, after watching a movie called Thelma and Louise she was inspired to visit Arches National Park.  She then spent 9 years traveling solo with little money and only a lonely planet guide book. Cell phones were the size of a brick and social media had not been thought of yet. She has taken 6  trips to Iceland,  spent two years  in New Zealand and Australia. Worked as a snowboard instructor  in Aspen, flown a plane, rides a Harley and hasn’t yet had to spend one day of her life stuck in a job she did not like! 

Claire’s passion for photography started when she realized that she had not taken a single good photo of her travels to 37 countries. After returning from a trip to China in 2015 to hike the Great Wall, she was disappointed to see that not one of the photos she had taken was in focus. This experience led her to start learning about photography and has been obsessed  with it ever since. 

Later, Claire was asked by a friend to photograph his wedding when the original photographer let him down. She had so much fun that day she realized taking photos of people was something she enjoyed. This led her to start offering wedding photography,  photo sessions in Moab and working with realtors photographing real estate. Her photographic style is natural, bright, and joyful, and she likes to capture real moments while being true to ourselves. She hand edits all her photos and stays away from editing trends that come and go.

 Claire is always up for a new adventure !  Let’s go  take some epic pictures somewhere !
