"Mary Claire was one of the best decisions we made surrounding our wedding. Mary Claire was incredible throughout the entire process leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day. In the end, she delivered images that spoke to the very core of our celebration. They felt editorial and intimate, romantic and candid, and perfectly captured our French destination wedding. We treasure our wedding images beyond anything that words can say and we are so thankful to Mary Claire for giving us the gift of something tangible to remember our day by. Merci, Mary Claire!"

"Wedding planning and picking vendors can be stressful, but when my (then) boyfriend proposed, booking Mary Claire was an easy decision. Not only was her style exactly what we were looking for, but she has a calming presence about her that is so grounding for such an emotionally charged day. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera which translated to the photos. We couldn't be happier with our decision and will treasure the photos forever."

"Mary-Claire's work is artistic, romantic and timeless. She is able to capture so much beauty through her lens with an eye for natural lighting and her intuition for truly lovely moments. She really took the time to understand us as a couple, making it more comfortable and natural to be in front of her lens. I would recommend Mary-Claire time & time again, knowing that she will create a tailor-made experience for each couple & produce such editorial, unique work."
