the time because Jes was taking care of that. She and her second shooter had scoped out our venue (which they'd never photographed in prior to our wedding), before the event. This ensured that they knew right where to take us to get the best shots. We had a large bridal party (18 total) plus two dogs but Jes wasn't overwhelmed by anything and managed the crowd with ease. I don't have all of my photos back yet but she gave us some sneak peaks literally 6 hours after our wedding ended and they are breathtaking. I don't have anything less than glowing to say about this vendor. Easy to get ahold of, worked well with our other vendors/wedding planner to create our timeline, photographed everyone to make them look their best, and was a pleasure to work with in terms of personality. Thank you Clewell Photography!

These two. Epitome of cool. Have you seen their work? If so, I shouldn't need to say anything else then, but I will because they are so amazing. My wife and I both love photography – it was actually something that brought us together – and we...
hired them before we had done anything else for the wedding. Their pictures have a simplicity and beauty that I am continually impressed with, and I really admire their talent.
To capture those kinds of images, you have to reflect those things as a person, and they both do. They are humble, genuine, and funny people whose presence makes you confident and at ease. Before taking pictures together, we were nervous about what it was going to be like. How often do you pose and kiss your significant other in front of someone comfortably unless you’re a Kardashian? But we showed up at our first meeting with Jes and were mildly obsessed with her ability and ease. They direct you in a way that makes the whole thing entirely natural and fun, which is a real testament to their skill and enjoyment of what they do.
It’s only three days after the wedding, and I’ve already had my entire family and dozens of friends comment on how amazing their photographs are – and they’ve only sent a few!
Last piece of advice (besides hiring them immediately to take pictures of anything in your life that could possibly need picture taking), get the Unbooth. The pictures are not only incredible quality, but I have lost count of how many guests told me it was the most fun they had at the wedding. Plus, my entire Facebook news feed has been filled with friends posting and commenting on their pictures today, because your guests can download them the very next day! We LOVE the Clewells.

If you read nothing else, read this: of all the major expenses of our wedding, the Clewells were the only that really exceeded our expectations.
Our meal was delicious, our music was fun, our planners were great, and everything was beautiful...

If you can't work with your photographer, you'll be miserable. Kris and Jes are great! We talked and laughed like we'd known each other for years. Of course, personalities are different, and this may not be the same for you.

While this service isn't cheap, I'm a true believer in "you get what you pay for." In fact, for an e-shoot, boudoir shoot, and 8-hours of the wedding day, I think the price is very reasonable... a perfect package!

Guests don't go home with a strip of mini pictures but can see all the photos online the next day and download what they want. Props are provided at no additional charge. My guests loved the Unbooth and wished they would have used it more. Not only are Kris & Jes talented artists, they are great people - so likable!
