"She made sure that everything was taken care of on the day of so we didn't have to worry about anything."

Claire was amazing to work with! She was very knowledgeable, organized, and responsive. She made sure that everything was taken care of on the day of so we didn't have to worry about anything. She was with us all day and did an AMAZING job! We love our wedding photos! She also does a great job getting your pictures to you fast! I woke up the day after our wedding with a sneak peek in my email! And it didn't take long until I had all of them! I can't stop posting on social media! I would definitely recommend Claire Nicole Photography to anyone! We will be using her for family photos this summer!

"The way that she was able to capture all of the emotions from our special day was what I loved most about her work."

We are so happy and in love with our wedding photos! Claire definitely has a great talent in photography and is fun and easy to work with. The way that she was able to capture all of the emotions from our special day was what I loved most about her work. Her response time when we first inquired was very quick as well as the turnaround time for the wedding photos. She made us a beautiful slideshow that we got to view for the first time with family and friends, which made it feel like we were experiencing our wedding day all over again! Overall Claire was wonderful and I recommend booking her!

"She was prompt, communicated with our planner, and captured every important moment of our wedding."

Claire was the best photographer we could have ever wanted for our wedding. She was prompt, communicated with our planner, and captured every important moment of our wedding. She was with me for the entirety of us getting ready, through all of the wedding. The quality of our photos is literally top of the line, and super modern as that’s what I was going for. It’s like she could read my mind and provided exactly what I wanted. Not only that, but we had our wedding photos within FOUR WEEKS and had sneak peeks after only 24 hours after the wedding!! Seriously unheard of as most photographers make you wait for much longer than that. She gave us HUNDREDS of photos and provided them for us online so we could pick and choose whatever we wanted. I will recommend Claire to anyone and everyone. She travelled all the way out to Truckee, CA for our wedding and to Tahoe, CA for our engagement shoot. She will be doing our pictures for the rest of our lives at this point. She’s THAT good.

Frequently asked questions

where are you based?

I am based in Sacramento, CA. I love Sacramento because it's full of so many beautiful and unique venues but most of all, I am right in between Lake Tahoe and the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Do you travel to destinations?

Absolutely. Although my love for Northern California runs deep, I am always hungry for new adventures! As a creative, I am fueled by exploring and being challenged to go outside of my comfort zone. Because of my love for this job and the unique couples I get to work with, I am always open to travel with minimal travel fees.

Do you offer prints or albums?

All Claire Nicole Photography wedding and portrait packages include a private online gallery with all of your final images. This gallery allows clients to download high resolution images and print them anywhere of their choosing. 

While we provide the ability to have your photos printed anywhere, your gallery is connected to a print shop which allows all types of prints to be purchased directly through your gallery. Our print lab is custom calibrated to our editing style to ensure that your photos print true to color and are consistent with the digital images.

We do offer customized heirloom albums. Our albums are always buzzing with glowing reviews of how stunning they are along with their impressive quality.

I could talk for days about how in love I am with our heirloom albums which is why we have an entire page devoted to them.
