Pat & Claire deserve more stars than we can count. The duo are true artists and have a natural knack for capturing beauty and fun. We were hoping to find a photographer that captured incredible candid shots and when we came across Pat’s portfol...
io, my now husband and I knew we had to get in touch.
When we first met Pat to discuss our wedding, he was more interested in hearing who we were and what we were looking for vs. telling us what he’d done before and could do for us. He wanted to know our story and after 30-45 minutes of talking about life and work, we felt at home with him and knew that he had our best interests at heart. We’re not at all comfortable in front of a camera and when you look at Pat and Claire’s photos from the day, you wouldn't be able to tell.
Leading up to our day, he checked in to begin coordinating the photos we wanted, the timing for the day, and to give us an idea of what to expect. Much like our initial call, he put us at ease and we were confident Pat knew exactly what we were after.
When the day finally came, Pat was there with his amazing wife, Claire, and ushered everything along, always being mindful of our needs and making sure that the day went the way we wanted. They divided their attention to make sure both bride and groom prep was captured and brought us both together for our first look prior to the ceremony and reception. They made us feel incredibly comfortable, like a bunch of friends were just snapping some photos, which is exactly what we wanted. We had a ton of fun talking with them, making it easy to forget why we were all out in the woods together.
Throughout the ceremony and reception, Pat and Claire were invisible - in the BEST way possible. We know they were there because of the incredible photos they gave us later, but you never would have realized they were working the event unless you were looking for them. They blended in with our family and friends and truly captured the magic of the day. We’ve received so many compliments from our family and friends about our album and we just couldn’t be happier. Not only are they the kindest people but they take their work and art incredibly serious. Their portfolio truly does speak for itself and the work they do. Like I said, I’d give them a billion+ stars. Thank you to Pat and Claire for making our day so perfect and special and something we’ll cherish FOREVER.
