My husband and I had set a date for June and planned on inviting all of our friends and family. When my grandmother passed away in the fall, she was in so much debt from medical expenses that it no longer seemed fair or financially responsible to keep the guest list at 150 people. In October, we made the call to move the wedding to early January 2015 and cut the guest list to 25. We were worried that our vendors we already booked with wouldn't be able to make the change in their books and that we would lose the deposit.
However, despite our wedding date falling immediately after a holiday, Laura offered to be our photographer! We were thrilled, as she had done our engagement shoot and the pictures were completely ethereal. In the months leading up to our wedding, she kept in touch and was very quick to respond to our e-mails. From the beginning, costs were completely transparent and there were no surprises or extra charges.
We sat down together a few weeks before the wedding (a meeting WE were 15 minutes late to and she was totally laid back about it) and she took note of every shot my husband and I wanted. She even memorized names of our closest family members! She is an absolute pro.
On the day of, Laura was incredibly diligent and ensured that we stayed on schedule. She was flexible, funny, and discreet! Though it was a little chilly, Laura never complained once. We were so grateful to have her with us and we will have wonderful photos with our family that will last forever. She helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives. Thank you, Laura!
The whole team was wonderful from Daurne in the Blue Bell office to Dustin and Mary and Bruce the photographers and videographer!! They made our day even more special. The pictures were beautiful. We couldn't have asked for better more professional team to help us remember our wedding day! Thank you for everything! It felt like coming to see family every time we came into the office. I would recommend Dustin and the Blue Bell office to all brides. You won't be disappointed!!

Dear Clair Pruett Studio of Springfield,
We would like to take the time to express our appreciation for our beautiful engagement and wedding photographs. Clair Pruett was highly recommended by several of our other family members and has become a family tradition for wedding photography.
Clair Pruett assigned us to Susan as a wedding consultant. We could have never organized our ideas for wedding photography without Susan’s assistance throughout the process. Her kind and considerate personality shines through her work. She was always available whenever we had questions about our photography package and recommended Laura, Peter and Bruce to capture this special time in our lives.
Laura was flexible when we asked her to meet us at Cabrini College for our engagement session. She allowed us to take her to our favorite places among the campus and was able to place her creative touch on each picture that was taken. We were impressed with so many of her pictures that we even ordered a special canvas photograph to display in our home.
Peter was our photographer for our wedding day. He was very professional as he took the time to check in with me a couple days before the wedding to make sure everything was okay. It was also nice to see that he was a family man as he brought his son Justin to assist him on site. His family-like nature gave him the ability to capture the essence of our wedding and now when we look at our photographs they take us back in time as if it were our wedding day all over again. His images will be enjoyed and cherished for a lifetime.
After seeing our photographs from our wedding day, we are truly looking forward to seeing the video Bruce creates soon.
A hug from us to all of you!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
I would not call my experience with Clair Pruett a good one. Several friends of ours recommended this company so we went with it. The positives - we got back 1,200 photos from our wedding day, the editing was clean, classic like we asked for, with so many photos it feels like the day was well covered. The negatives - getting in touch with the Greenville office was impossible because of their new 'by appointment only' hours, they do not follow up with you during the planning process so it's 100% on you to arrange all details prior to your wedding day (including speaking to the photographer prior to the rehearsal day), the photographer, Dustin, and second shooter didn't direct ANY details while working (people have sunglasses on in family portraits, groom's suit jacket bunched up, bride's hair out of place, second shooter in the shot, etc.), photographer asked me to sign papers while sitting at dinner about paying for extra time and not getting shots we asked for to absolve him of responsibility, photos were not delivered until 8 weeks and 3 days after wedding (they cited technical difficulties on their end). The videographer and photographer acted as though they had never worked with the other type of professional before - a lot of wasted time during photos, in each other's shots, etc. It's 3 months after our wedding and we haven't heard a word on delivery of the video so I can't comment on the quality of that. I could go on but won't. I can see that other people had a fine experience with them; We did not.
We trusted Clair Pruett photography for our wedding photos and could not be happier! Our photographer, Caitlin, was great. She is very detail oriented, listened to all of our requests and took into consideration what was important to us on our wedding day. She also used her own creative twist while photographing which turned out to be some of the best shots. I would highly recommend Clair Pruett photography for any bride who wants original and high quality photos to remember their special day! :)
We absolutely loved working with Clair Pruett. From our first meeting with Laura, to our engagement pictures, to the wedding pictures everything went perfectly. Laura was extremely easy to work with and always made us feel comfortable. The photos came out gorgeous and we really could not be happier with them. We are looking forward to getting our album!!
Jack Dugan from Clair Pruett was exceptionally wonderful to work with. Jack arrived early, was very efficient, had great creative ideas, and had a positive and friendly personality that jived with everyone. Duarne Gilmartin did our engagement photo session and we were beyond happy with the finished product! We can't wait to see our wedding pictures! What a professional and fantastic team! Thank you so very much!
We had Bruce and Winfield for our videography the day of our wedding. Initially we encountered some bumps in the road with them understanding our day-of schedule, and some of the correspondence back and forth got a little heated. But I requested an in person meeting and kind of pushed for that, and once that happened, we were all on the same page. The day of, both videographers arrived on time, were very professional, and made the day enjoyable. I think they even got along well with our photographer! I can't wait to see what our wedding video is going to look like!
Everyone at Clair Pruett was absolutely amazing. The 3 photographers and videographer really helped us create the best wedding day pictures and made sure that we didnt forget the shots we wanted. I would choose them again in a heartbeat!
After meeting with multiple photographers, seeing their work, and getting quotes my fiance and I decided to go with Clair Pruett for our Engagement and Wedding photos. From initial contact just to get information, the General Manager at the Greenville location, Karrie, was quick to respond, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. We recently had an off site Engagement photo shoot and despite anxiety/nervousness on our part the pictures turned out amazing! Karrie helped us have fun and was creative with backgrounds and poses. I would highly recommend Clair Pruett and can not wait til June for the wedding!
My fiance and I recently booked Clair Pruett for our wedding photographer and videographer. As part of our wedding package we received a free engagement photo session and it was so much fun! Karrie from Clair Pruett Greenville was very helpful in making us feel comfortable during our first real photo shoot. Our pictures turned out great and she even added her personal touch to them to make them even more amazing! We absolutely recommend using Clair Pruett because of their professionalism, creativity and talent.
My wedding was on June 28th and the photographer Laura was amazing!! She was fun, hard working, and very polite! She was also very creative with her photos. The General Manager Karrie was friendly, knowledgable, and always had a smile!
My whole experience with Clair Pruett has been nothing but awesome. From day one when I met with Daurne in the Blue Bell office, I knew I was in good hands. For my wedding I had Jack and Mary. They were both very professional, and made everything go smoothly. If anyone is looking for the perfect photographer, look no further then Clair Pruett!
From the minute we sat down with Daurne in Clair Pruett's Blue Bell location, we knew we had found our photographer for our special day! They made it so easy for us and gave us "peace of mind" leading up the our day that it was all going to be perfect. Perfect it was!!!
Our photographer was a lovely woman named Laura and our videographer was a consumate professional named James. Please request these two indivduals for your event. They were GREAT!!!
We highly recommend them for your wedding and reception! You will NOT be disappointed!!!
All the best,
Tedd & Lea Fabryk
Clair Pruett offered great value for both photography and videography (we wanted both services from one vendor for greater convenience). We were very happy with our package, which also offered an engagement photo session. The service was wonderful and reliable, and all of my questions were always answered promptly. We are getting ready to put together our album with a designer, and we're very excited after having a chance to view the proofs - we love the pictures and are so happy that our amazing day was beautifully captured for lasting memories! Thank you!
From the office to the photographers to the editors, we were SO happy with the photography from the Wedding. Everyone is accomodating, explains things, offers suggestions and when I was overwhelmed with the Wedding... they guided me to what I truly wanted. Which was to forgo videography. My husband and I both love our photos and the quality is above expectation.
When it came time to pick a photography company, I thought back to my sister's dreaded photographer from her own wedding. Then I thought about my cousin's photographer who wed in 2012. She used Clair Pruett, and I knew the quality of their work...one thing I could check off the to-do list. I was happy with their pre-wedding services; however, our photographer, John, was less than professional. He called the groom the wrong name, (atleast get that one right!) tripped over the children who were in our bridal party, and worst of all-didn't get a picture of both my husband and I with both my parents...We just got the pictures back, and they are great for the most part...but at the end of the day all you have is pictures...and I will never get back a chance to capture that moment with both my parents and husband. Overall, I would recommend Clair Pruett, but not John specifically. Otherwise, our videographer and photojournalist were great.
Photography and Videography were 2 of the most important details for my wife and I when planning our Wedding. We were willing to spend more with these 2 if it meant better quality. Clair Pruett delivered on the quality and service and they fit nicely within our budget!
From our initial emails with Daurne at the Blue Bell office (even before we signed on the dotted line), we could tell that Clair Pruett Studios was a family business that has grown over the years based on reputation and quality. Daurne was punctual with her responses to any questions we had. After our in-person meeting, our impression of Daurne increased even more. She was extremely easy to work with and made us feel special. We got a great bundle of Videography and Photography. Daurne continued to answer any questions we had even though our Wedding was a year and a half away.
We brought our dog with us to our Engagement Session and our photographer, CaraLee, was excellent with Mia. She captured a lot of fun shots for us and had creative ideas. Looking back, we wish we had more than the hour that was included in our package. That was one of the few disappointments of the entire experience.
Fast forward to the Wedding Day...we chose to hire a Photojournalist (Dan) in addition to our Photographer (Danielle). We highly recommend this upgrade, as Dan spent the day with the guys as they got ready and arrived at Church. Danielle was with the girls. Dan and Danielle both photographed the ceremony, formal pictures, and reception. They each had very different shots of the same thing, which gave us so many pictures to choose from! They were both very easy to work with and open to making our ideas come to fruition. Dasha was a great assistant. She was extremely nice and always ready to grab something we forgot for a picture or round up people we needed for a shot.
Ray was our Videographer and he was awesome. He was there to video the guys arriving at the Church and for the rest of the day. We have only seen our "Wedding Trailer" but we are thrilled with his creativity and vision so far.
Picking out what photos we wanted to include in the albums was a long process for us. We were indecisive, but Daurne was understanding and great to work with, offering us advice and ideas. The website is very easy to navigate and allows you to go through pictures when you have time, not a rushed process. We can't wait to see how our albums turn out!
If you want a reliable, professional, and friendly studio to work with Clair Pruett should be your choice. Being able to do Videography and Photography at the same studio is a great benefit (saves you a lot of time) and the package they are able to put together is financially competitive. We highly recommend Clair Pruett Studios.
We can't compliment Caitlin from Clair Pruett enough for her amazing job shooting our wedding at Moshulu!!! Although it started as a complete down pour with our 8yr, 6yr and 4yr old children, we all fell in love with her immediately and she kept us and the kids engaged the entire time. Our extended family even commented on how much they were impressed by her. Our experienced with Caitlin and Clair Pruett was absolutely amazing!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Laura Anne and everyone in the office were very helpful and responsive and lovely to work with. Our photographers, Pete and Dan, and our videographer, Ray, were all great! They were professional, thorough, helpful, creative, very kind, and took excellent care of us on our big day. It all goes by in a magical blur so the beautiful photos helped us to relive the many special moments. We're looking forward to receiving our video soon and we're sure it will be equally
