Hey, I’m Claudia — a Seattle wedding and elopement photographer for the down to earth and incredibly in-love.

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.
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?
As a PNW wedding photographer, I believe this experience should be fun and stress free. My goal is to help my couples feel comfortable, supported, and like they can be themselves in front of the camera! I believe fostering real relationships with my couples is so important to achieving that! I want my couples to feel like they have a friend beside them on the best day of their lives that they can lean on during the stressful moments, and celebrate with them during the best moments!

"I wish that there were words that could adequately describe how incredible it was to work with Claudia. Not only is she SO incredibly talented but her business acumen, communication and ability to capture so many different moments happening at once is truly a gift that few have. I've known that photography was where I wanted to invest the most money in, as it is really the only thing that you have that lasts a lifetime. This was by far the LEAST stressful vendor I have ever booked because she really makes it her mission to make sure the only thing you need to do is show up on engagement day/wedding day. Claudia from the very first phone call understood my vision, what was important to me, and even explained things that I didn't even know I wanted. Most importantly she was able to get my slightly camera shy husband to come out of his shell! All of our pictures looks so natural, in the moment and like it truly is just a perfect capture of the best moment in time. Her artistic ability to catch THE moment is incredible and looking through our wedding album its like I am watching the whole day play out in real time again. Everyone that looks at our pictures says that they are truly the best they've ever seen and how incredible Claudia was on the big day. We love love LOVE everything about Claudia Noelle Photography and truly cannot thank her enough and recommend her to anyone who needs capturing of raw, authentic moments for your big day!"
"I honestly don’t know where to start… I guess the best place would be to begin by saying that choosing the use Claudia for our engagement & wedding photos was one of the best decision we made when it comes to our wedding. My husband and I had the privilege to be in wedding parties for weddings photographed by Claudia in 2019 and 2021 so when it came time to choosing who we wanted as our photographer for our fall 2022 wedding we knew we had to have her. Whether you are the couple getting married, in the wedding party, a family member or a friend attending she has a way of making anyone she photographs feel comfortable. Not only are you relaxed during your wedding photo shoots, but the photographs turn out amazing! I constantly find myself looking back at our photos and I could not wait to print them out and hang them up in our home the second we received them. We consistently find ourselves getting compliments on them from others on them and are SOOOO HAPPY we used her for our photos! She also let us include our dog on our wedding day which was amazing! We could not recommend highly enough!"
"Claudia made herself available for our October wedding in a last minute effort to find someone to capture the day. We were FLOORED when we received our photos back way sooner than we thought and how incredibly they captured the magic of this day. She went above and beyond, helping us keep the flow of the wedding going because we were inexperienced and unprepared for all the help we needed. This day ran beautifully and every problem encountered, Claudia handled like a pro and helped make it perfect for my husband and I. Truly I was stunned by the quality, professionalism, and obsession that came from seeing those photos. I've never felt like someone captured me and my partner better and the photos are plastered all over our home. I cannot recommend Claudia enough, she is both a wonderful comfort and professional on the big day and before!"
"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!!!!"
"Before I was even engaged people told me that my biggest investment for my wedding should be my photographer because the memories will inevitably blur but the photos will be forever. So I knew going into wedding planning that's what I was going to focus on. I picked Claudia for a number of reasons: I liked that she was around my age so I felt like we could connect better, I loved the tone of her photos and she had photographed a mutual friend's wedding and got rave reviews from them. My now husband absolutely hates photos of himself so I already knew that engagement photos were going to be like pulling teeth and then of course, the PNW weather made it even more difficult. Luckily, Claudia is so flexible and we were able to find a plan c to get them done. My husband had an absolute blast during our engagement session with her. So much that he said he wanted to do it again -- a rare occurrence. She does such an amazing job making you feel comfortable, and I think that's the main reason my husband enjoyed the engagement session so much. I knew that going into the wedding day, your photographer helps set the tone for the day, and I wasn't even worried because I knew Claudia would not disappoint. She made everything run smoothly and it felt effortless taking a zillion photos the day of. I have received so many compliments on my photos, and people asking for more information so they could connect with Claudia. My Man of Honor is using her as well based on our recommendation! I cannot rave about Claudia enough. I promise you that you won't be disappointed. And also she loves dogs and let him be included so what more could you ask for."
"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!!"
