Clinton's final products reflect his passion for his art. Clinton shot our engagement and wedding photos. Both told a beautiful story. Beyond the hundreds of spectacular pictures, I greatly appreciated Clinton's ability to communicate with me, my husband, and the rest of the... Read More wedding party. Specifically, I remember during the wedding party pictures, he narrated the story he wanted to portray in each shot; this helped all of us know the purpose of the photo. The end result was awesome! Additionally, during the ceremony and reception, I rarely even noticed him. He captured intimate moments without interrupting them. I will recommend Clinton to any couple getting married; he's that great. Finally, Clinton's rate is worth every penny. He provided 1.5 hours for our engagement session and 10 hours the day of the wedding. 10 hours! That's hard to find. Do yourself a favor and book Clinton as your photographer.

Clinton is an exceptional photographer! I don't know how he did it, but he captured every single important moment and I didn't eve see him to it! All of a sudden BAM he's there. You name it we have them all and they are all perfect. The BEST part is we had ALL our photos in 2... Read More days!!!! Before we even left on our honeymoon we had the photos in hand, just amazing. Photography was one of the most important things to me at my wedding and Clinton went above and beyond my expectations. He sent me a whole timeline and shared document before the event, which was great for me because I am a visual person. He coordinated the photo schedule with all other vendors so all I had to do was show up and get told where to go. He made my husband and I feel so at ease, and he captured amazing photos that looked natural and fun. He does not do a lot of staged shots which I loved, he mostly watched how we interacted and captured the sweetest moments. He is big on lighting so he made sure the lighting was right in each shot. I loved how he arranged a specific time in our day to also do family photos, with a big family like ours that to me that was going to be daunting, but he knew exactly how to lead the crowd and get right down to business. We now have wonderful family photos, my mother is so happy. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Clinton!

Couldn't Imagine the Day Without Clinton

Clinton and his assistant were perfect for us. We looked at a few different photographers, but I just loved the feel and look of his pictures. And, when we met him in person, we were sold. He is very professional and knowledgeable - and has the portfolio to prove it. He's got... Read More the artistic vision, the ability to just kind of go under the radar and the eye needed for capturing weddings. He, in our opinion, was a great value- there's none of that charge-per-picture stuff, and he gives you the rights to your pictures so you can do essentially what you want. We got over 600 pictures from him. He's also really good with people. We had 10 kids in our wedding, which to some could be a daunting task- but we all got a kick out of watching him task the kids with something silly- like touching their ears (oh my, we got the most darling pictures of all our nieces and nephews!). But it wasn't just kids- he helped to kindly get people to do what was needed, only stepping in when he needed to (think hair, stance, etc) and it shows. We will treasure the story that Clinton captured for the rest of our lives - everything turned out perfect! Can't imagine having anyone else.

Best Wedding Photos!

Clinton was fantastic to work with as well as provided an excellent product. My husband and I were planning our wedding from SLC and Clinton skyped with us since we were unable to meet with him in person for the initial meet-and-greet, we got a great vibe from him from this... Read More conversation and hired him to cover our wedding day festivities. Clinton kept in contact up to the big day, requesting a link to my Pinterst page to get a feeling for what was inspiring our wedding, and talked with me over the phone about details important to us to have captured on film. Once on site Clinton did an awesome job interacting with our guests and captured excellent shots of the everyone and the venue. It only took about 2 and a half weeks to get the pictures back, which we received on a CD with rights to make as many copies as we need.

Wonderful to work with!

Clinton did both my engagement and wedding photos, he made me feel at ease and the pictures are candid, artistic and captured everything I want them too. I am waiting on my wedding disc, but I know I will be blown away. Great work, and great to have on hand. His assistant is... Read More great too! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!

Superb photographer!

Clinton did our engagement and wedding photos. Although we haven't yet received our wedding photos we expect them to be just a phenomenal as the engagement pictures. Clinton is professional, unobtrusive and organized. He was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer and...

Clinton and his assistant Alyssa were great! They were fun to work with. I felt certain that they were capturing all the wonderful moments of my ceremony and reception.
