Her skill is exceptional. Her keen eye and her empathy for the subject makes her the stunningly talented photographer that she is !

What a wonderful photographer and lovely person claire is! She took the photos at our wedding in July and did such an amazing job. Before the day she made sure she had spoken to us various times to make sure she knew what we wanted, arrange timings and get to know us. She even took the time to visit our venue beforehand so that she was familiar with the perfect spots for photos. On the wedding day, she arrived early and got to work straight away, taking stunning photos. She made us feel totally at ease in front of the camera and captured amazing shots in a timely manner so that we weren’t away from guests for too long. We chose to have a couple photo shoot before the ceremony and her radiant personality actually really helped to calm our nerves! The photos are beautiful and were sent to us very promptly. Several of our guests commented after the wedding how lovely she was. Thank you for capturing our special day so perfectly. More...

Claire was our photographer for our wedding and my wife and I would fully recommend her for anyone looking for a photographer. Throughout the whole process Claire is very organised, diligent and contactable. Prior to the wedding she set up an hour for my wife and me to meet in person to discuss the details and timings of our wedding and to get to know her better. During this session she was incredibly professional and personable. She came to the meeting with a list of questions and was fully engaged in ensuring she captured all our requirements during the wedding for group photos and could capture the key moments. In addition, prior to the meeting Claire had already performed some research and scouted the wedding location. She came up with a great suggestion for myself and my wife to go to St Luke’s gardens (place nearby) during the drinks reception to get some candid couple photos. Also prior to the wedding itself, Claire had already visited the wedding location (Chelsea Old Town Hall and the reception to ensure that she could find the best places for photos). All of this made us feel confident early on that she would be fantastic. During the wedding, Claire was incredibly friendly and personable. Even though our wedding had guests (relatives from China) who were unable to speak English, she was able to engage with them and throughout the whole process she helped us feel very natural and comfortable in front of a camera. When Claire left she also let us know the expected timeframe for our photos and absolutely delivered in providing us the pictures to download in a timely manner. Now down to the photos. Wow! The pictures speak for themselves as you can see on her website and Facebook page. The pictures that Claire takes are elegant, enchanting and look absolutely amazing and beautiful. If you are into natural photography which tells a story and you like the style of black and white mixed with colour photos then Claire is absolutely the person for you. Claire – Thank you, it has been an absolute privilege and pleasure to have worked with you and for you to have been there at our wedding. Much love, Ivan and Yemeng. x More...

We had the pleasure of having Claire as our wedding photographer in June 2018. We had a small family wedding and we weren't sure if we were going to have an official photographer, but after seeing Claire's work, we're so glad we did. I met Claire a few weeks before the big day and instantly warmed to her. I hadn't really thought about the types of pictures we wanted so didn't really have a brief for her. However, it turns out I didn't need to, she made lots of great suggestions on location and logistics, which were perfect. We received the final images a week or so after the wedding (which was way quicker than I expected) and we couldn't have been happier with them. Claire captured our big day beautifully and I can't recommend her highly enough! More...

Within seconds of first speaking with Claire, I knew I had found the right photographer to capture the brand images I was picturing for my new website! Claire instantly understood the style I was looking to achieve and even pulled together a collection of photo shoot ideas and potential local locations that matched my thoughts perfectly! On the day, Claire made sure we captured the images we had discussed, plus a few extras, all while making me feel very relaxed and at ease in front of the camera - as someone who can be a little camera shy, this was definitely appreciated and made the day really enjoyable! For anyone looking to launch a new business or even re-brand their existing business, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Claire to you. Her patience, flexibility and commitment to understanding and achieving your vision make her the perfect person to work with! More...

I had the pleasure of a professional photoshoot with Claire last Saturday. Less than 48 hours later I have a huge array of excellent, versatile photos. Claire's photographic skills are matched only by her inter-personal ability; I am not used to photoshoots, and she kept it fun, professional and tailored to my needs. I cannot recommend her highly enough. More...

Claire took the time to find a great location to take some head shots for me. Each spot was scoped out and tested and she waited till the coast was clear to make sure I didn't pull any embarrassed faces doing a photo shoot in a public place. It was perfect! Great enthusiasm for her craft and genuine desire to get fantastic shots! More...

Last year I decided to set up my own blog, to learn all about the digital world and teach myself something new. I really needed to support this with some professional photos so I asked Claire if she would be interested... luckily she said yes! We got some FAB shots in the city as the sun was setting one evening after work. I was so pleased with them and the photos really made the site. Thanks C! More...

Claire is a very special lady. We had taken NO family photos and wanted to get a few casual shots as a family of now 4. We wanted simple and natural photos - she delivered! She arrived to a full, chaotic household, was unphased and so easy going. She snapped away and before we knew it she was gone. She is so talented. We will use her again and again and recommended her to anyone. She is fab.... thank you lovely lady for making it all look so easy. More...

I wasn't sure if Evie and I would enjoy a photo shoot experience but I took the plunge and arranged to meet Claire Thomas and I am so happy we did. Claire made the whole day so relaxed and fun and I am delighted with the results! Claire was so patient with Evie to ensure she got the shots she did. We love them and can't wait to get them printed!

Claire has done a wonderful job of capturing my children's personalities as they both are at this moment in their little lives. My daughter, Isla (just turned 4), has a wonderful personality, but you have to be lucky enough to know her before she shines her true self. From the album you can see how Claire has managed to capture both aspects of this....shy to start with, being stubborn and determined and then onto having a brilliant time and becoming completely oblivious to a camera being present (that's down to Claire's very subtle approach)! Despite the different aspects of Islas personality, nothing stops her from totally adoring her little brother. This is captured too, which I absolutely love. The 'little brother', Henry, is an adorable 4 month old who enjoys watching everything and melts your heart with a gorgeous smile a a flicker of his long eyelashes. These photos will be looked back on in years to come and will be able to tell us exactly at what stage of their little personalities they were at....nothing staged....just completely natural. Thank you Claire Thomas xxx 5 stars! ***** — with Matthew Boulton and Claire Thomas. More...

I loved working with Claire to capture some images to use on my website and on social media. From the very brief note I sent her on what I wanted to use the images for and a couple of examples of things I liked, she came prepared with a comprehensive list of shots and lots of creative ideas. She was relaxed and open to working through ideas together, whilst bringing a strong view on what would work and ensuring she captured everything needed in the time we had. She was particularly fab at putting me at ease when taking some head shots - something I wasn't looking forward to! I was thrilled with the results, which she turned around super quick - sending me a little taster image within a few hours so I could see how they looked. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her, professional, creative and a joy to work with! More...
