I thrive when working with couples who keep it real. The ones who are focused on creating a wedding experience that reflects who they really are and what makes their connection special.
Does that sound like your love story?
Hey, I’m Claudia — a Seattle elopement and wedding photographer for the adventurous and incredibly in-love. I love creating experiences that are true to who you are because that is where the magic happens. My work allows me to capture your unique relationship. I will encourage you to trust your inner guidance and empower you to create a wedding day that looks however you want it to! Your love story is a moving, breathing thing. Photos are a tangible way to capture parts of that story that you can look back on for the rest of your life. Being a photographer is more than just a job to me, it’s a part of who I am. I would love to be the one to tell your love story. When you book me as your wedding photographer, you are working with someone who truly cares about your story. You’ll get the support of a friend, the expertise of a professional, and images that truly represent YOU.
An adventure elopement isn’t traditional. It’s an opportunity to showcase your love in a way that feels inspired and authentic. Think dreamy desert landscape or jaw-dropping mountain views. The ceremony can have two people or twenty. An adventure elopement is a celebration that replaces pressure and expectations with excitement and fun!
Being raised in the PNW is the reason I live for adventure. Growing up surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world has given me a unique eye for detail and capturing its beauty. As an adventure elopement and intimate wedding photographer, I believe this experience should be fun and stress free. My goal is to support my couples through every step of the process and encourage them to dream big!
It feels exhilarating doing something different. Taking a big step to DO YOU when it comes to planning a wedding feels badass! It also means there are endless possibilities on what we can create! Don’t let that overwhelm you.
As an elopement and wedding photographer, I wear many hats. Aside from capturing your love story, I also help scout and plan your location, provide vendor recommendations, create seamless timelines, and so much more. My desire is to collaborate with you to create an unforgettable elopement experience and for you to feel 100% stress free.
“I've admired Claudia's work from afar for a long time before I was even engaged! She's very professional - she knows what she's doing which is so incredibly helpful not only on your wedding day, but in engagement photos & feeling comfortable! You don't want to be thinking about how to pose, how to get your bridal party to pose, etc and Claudia leads with respect, and also authority! It's the best combo that allows you to trust her.
She'll be your friend, not just your photographer. She'll laugh with you, cry with you & share the intimate moments of your big day with you. I wanted our wedding to feel intimate in the way that we could look around at EVERYONE there and know them (the Dj, the MC, photographer, etc) and Claudia gives you the opportunity to experience friendship which is really special.
I could go on and on about who Claudia is as a person, and the cherry on top is the product that she provides. She is extremely talented. I LOVE her style of editing, and beyond that her ability to capture moments that speak a thousand words! It's more than you can imagine, and brings you back to moments on your day that you'll never forget through her photography.
Book her, be friends with her - it'll be the best decision!!!!”
“Everything was great. I had a really bad experience prior to hiring Claudia, my photographer was very unresponsive and it was SO stressful. Claudia was such a relief because she was super responsive, organized, and professional (& a plus, sent us a super cute little thank you package for hiring her which was so thoughtful!!) - but also felt like she was a friend when we talked! I facetimed her quite a bit because a lot of things changed because of Covid and she was a pleasure to chat with every time! She showed up on time for the wedding, directed everything so well- and just overall helped the flow of the wedding day. Pictures went so smoothly & the & turned out amazing + they came back really quickly! I would recommend her over and over again! :)”
“Claudia was absolutely wonderful! Her photos captured every emotion throughout our big day (and our engagement too!). The photos alone made us smile and laugh reliving all the wonderful moments she captured so perfectly! We were so worried everything would feel fake or staged, but not once did it feel that way. Claudia knew how to make us feel at ease and just be ourselves, no matter how weird!
We laughed. We danced. We sang songs. All the while, Claudia was there cheering us on to be ourselves. With a little direction, the photos of our weirdness became beautiful portraits of our love for eachother, our family and friends. I'm so thankful we chose Claudia to capture our big day and our celebration of our engagement! I'm not sure anyone else would be able to provide us with such awesome real photos of us just being us.
THANK YOU CLAUDIA! For everything!”
“Ohhhh my gosh, words cannot express how fond I am of Claudia and her work. From the moment we first chatted on the phone, I felt like I was speaking to a friend and that continued each time we saw her. We all know how awkward photos can be, especially for myself and my husband, who are not the most expressive people, but we instantly felt at ease and sincerity shines through in Claudia's photos.
For our wedding, we had a very intimate wedding (30 people) it felt like Claudia was a friend. She was social and supportive but never off her game, capturing every moment you could possibly want to have remembered forever. Looking at the sneak peeks she sent us - just WOW. We are so beyond happy we found her and that she was still available and we cannot wait to see her again for post wedding pics and many anniversary shoots to come!!
To any brides to be - please do not sacrifice on your photographer. Find someone who let's you and your partner shine and who takes all the stress and worries away. For us, that was Claudia!!”
