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!

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!
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
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.
After a ton of research, my husband and I picked Clair Pruett based on price and reputation. We were happy with our photos, nothing really WOW'ed us but they were good enough. Post production, however, has been a nightmare. Our production manager (who helps design the albums and oversee the work) is available only a few hours a day, maybe 10am-3pm, Tues-Fri (her hours are not consistent) and by appointment only on Saturdays, but even Saturdays are difficult to get in. As a couple that has relocated since our wedding this has been so difficult! Also the website that Clair Pruett uses to view photos and design the album is awful - freezes, deletes images, and often locks you out. We finally completed our album design, and the albums were sent to print. The results are terribly disappointing. Our bride/groom album prints are so dark, my bridesmaids' plum dresses look black! The mats on the parent albums look like they were cut by a child, so crooked. The mats and pictures are also not fixed to the page. We had to send all three albums back for reprint and assembly. Two years after our wedding we still do not have our albums. I do not recommend Clair Pruett for photography, especially considering the plethora of talented and affordable wedding photographers in the Philadelphia area. Please do not make the same mistake as us!
Hi Murph&Mack, I recently saw this post and wanted to reach out.
Glad to hear you liked the actual photos from your wedding, but I'm so sorry to hear your experience on the post production wasn't nearly as good.
Interesting info about our 3rd part...
The three photographer team that Clair Pruett were fantastic. They took every picture we asked for ahead of time. In addition, they were everywhere but not intrusive at all.
Claire Pruett Team is amazing! They are so well organized and know exactly what they are doing. On top of being incredibly talented they are fun and quick on their feet! There are a lot of things you can stress about on your wedding day but never for a second were we stressed about photos or making sure certain shots were taken, we knew they were on it. We can't thank the team enough for being part of such a memorable day!!!!
ahhhh....:) Thank you so much!
I was married in May 2013. I used Clair Pruett for my photographs and video. My husband and I were thrilled with how everything turned out. Maureen was our photographer and went way beyond our expectations, as we truly thought she did a wonderful job. She had scoped out the location the week before the wedding and was prepared and had a few spots in mind that were perfect for pictures. We recently designed our album with Karrie, who is such a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend using Clair Pruett and our plan is to maintain a relationship and continue to use them in the future.
Thanks Ashley! The production team said how much they enjoyed editing your wedding images....beautiful!
I went with Clair Pruett after a friend used them for her wedding. Compared to other vendors, Clair Pruett was reasonable and you got lots for you money. They are easy to get in touch with and return calls and emails promptly. They gave us a free engagement session with 1 photo file and they were so nice, we couldn't choose and purchased more. Although we didn't get our first choices for wedding photographer, the photographer they gave us was easy to work with and did a great job. We also got our proofs back in about 3 weeks!
Rich, Zach, Ray and Dasha were great on our wedding day! They were a fun group to be around and captured so many great shots. I can't wait to see all of the pictures from our wedding!!!!
Thank you so much! We had a blast at your wedding! Please touch is such an event facility~ hope the honeymoon was terrific!
When my daughter wanted to go with Clair Pruett, I was afraid that the cost would be prohibitive,and that we could get a similar product elsewhere. Wow, was I wrong. There were many price points available, and now, after our post-wedding appointment, I can see the difference. It's not just a collection of photos, it's a story, complete with backgrounds, collages, and artistry. Sooo beautiful. So much more than an album. Karrie, our consultant, was super helpful in choosing the right photos - and there is more to it than you realize. So, if in doubt, don't skimp! The day goes by in a blink, and you will want the most wonderful keepsakes of the album and video.
Thank you for your kind words!
We booked Clair Pruett for our photographer and videographer for our June 2013 wedding in DE. We could not be happier!
The photographer and videographer were punctual, professional, friendly, and creative! They paid close attention to detail and made sure every moment throughout the day was captured.
Our final prints and DVD both came out amazing! Every picture was great! It was hard to decide which ones to order! Our full feature DVD and movie style trailer of our wedding surpassed our every expectation! The quality and creativity of the video is amazing!
I would highly recommend Clair Pruett for both your wedding photography and videography. You won't be disappointed.
My daughter and son-in-law had the honor of having Rich and Dasha as their photographers for their August 4, 2013 wedding. They were awesome! Their personalities, knowledge, and organizational skills kept the day fun, relaxed, and "in the moment." Weddings can be very stressful, but Rich and Dasha's experience and lighthearted personalities set the tone for an enjoyable event. Photographers have a very tough job, yet Rich and Dasha made their job appear effortless. We are looking forward to seeing all of the photos because we are confident they will be just as wonderful!
Thank you for such an awesome testimonial! We love what we do, and we're so glad it shows!
We booked Clair Pruett as our photographer and videographer for our 2014 wedding and just used our free engagement session over the summer. Upon meeting with Daurne Gilmartin we knew immediately we wanted Clair Pruett for our wedding. Daurne was very easy to work with, extremely helpful answering our questions and helped to ensure we were able to stay with in our budget, but still get everything we wanted
We absolutely loved working with Caralee during our engagement session. She had a great personality, sense of humor, and made us feel very comfortable. We couldn't be more thrilled with how our prints turned out.
We were recommended by two previous customers and we would recommend Clair Pruett for anyone looking for a reasonably priced photographer/videographer for their wedding! We are very much looking forward to our wedding day!
We were married in 2010 and absolutely loved working with Clair Pruett Photography! Daurne Gilmartin in the Blue Bell office is so wonderful~ extremely knowledgable & helpful with all of our questions and concerns!
We leave our beautiful artistic style wedding album out on the coffee table and have received endless compliments on the stunning photos. We have recommended Clair Pruett time and time again since our wedding and just a few months ago purchased the fully retouched collection of all of our wedding photos. We are thrilled to have ALL of our GORGEOUS photographs to remember the special day! Not only were the photographs beautiful, but we also love the video we ordered. The large video footage captures every detail of the big day, but my favorite part is the short video set to awesome music, fitting every major moment of the day into a short video I love watching again and again!
The photographers and videographer we worked with were amazingly talented~ they were so friendly, beyond professional and listened to all of our requests, while making sure we had the best photographs and video shots we could of the big day!
Now we are also excited to be using Clair Pruett for our maternity portraits and portraits of our newborn bundle of joy in December! We are so grateful for how special they helped make our wedding day and now our pregnancy memories!
