If you want gorgeous, creative, amazing pictures that will capture your best day forever... BOOK CLANE NOW!!!! We were very lucky to work with Clane for our wedding last fall. He’s truly a dream to work. He doesn't make you do old fashioned boring poses; he makes it FUN!!! Of course, some are conventional (come on you need and want some of those) but he has such a knack for creativity and vision that it was impressive what he did with us. On the day of the wedding he was nearly an hour early so that he could get to know the venue. He was very professional, but also compassionate and helpful and definitely had the calm, he has the reassuring vibe that you want in a person that will literally be standing next to you for your entire wedding day. I got my photos today, less than a month after the wedding, and they are so beautiful, and so vibrant and lively. Our family couldn’t stop complimenting how great working with him was. Overall he was just fantastic to work with fun, friendly, professional, and amazing. Seriously BOOK HIM TO PRESERVE YOUR SPECIAL DAY IN AN ARTISTIC AND FUN WAY!!!! Go now. Call. Do it.

Clane Gessel is the best photographer!

This was our experience:

1. Amazingly talented, each photo off the camera was amazing. He was so easy to work with.
2. He’s humorous to help with the family and get them to smile.
3. Super creative shots, you can see his background as a landscape photographer in each photo, he uses his skills to make each shot perfect. It’s consistent in our proofs too, each shot was truly artistic and memorable.
4. He’s fast when working with family and bridal party, which is important when we’re working on a time schedule.
5. Trish is great! His assistant made it fun to work with the whole time.
6. He’s a great communicator up until and after the wedding. I’d recommend him highly to anyone that is thinking about getting married. He books out years in advance, be sure to book him ASAP.

I will try to keep this review short and to the point. if you would like to read my full review on Clane Gessel, please see his Yelp page. Cliff Notes:

Clane takes UNBELIEVABLE photos. That is no lie and his photos speak form themselves, he is a real artist and has a great eye.

Clane’s attitude is what is causing me to write this review. He was scheduled at noon (for a 3p wedding) and was immediately saying we were running out of time and neglecting to take photos I was requesting due to time constraints, even 20 minutes after his arrival. I do admit, I had 10 bridesmaids (all who were well behaved, happy to help and following instruction) and there was rain on our wedding day, which did cause some stress, but not any excuse for our photographer to act the way he did.

But from the get go, Clane seemed very grouchy, annoyed and stressed out and immediately sucked the air right out of the room. Despite these potential obstacles (large wedding party and rain) Clane did not act as a professional but instead turned negative with horrible body language, crossed arms, rolling his eyes and all around rude demeanor. It made me very uncomfortable (as the bride) which stressed my husband out as well.

Even 2 months later, I still have friends and family talking about our photographer and what a terrible attitude he had. I’m hoping there comes a time when I look back at our wedding and forget about our photographer and the damper he’s left on our day. My husband still has yet to look at our wedding photos because of his discomfort in the whole situation.

I think it's fair for future brides to know that if they hire Clane, they may not get the 5 star Clane you read about, I certainly did not. If I had to do this all over again, I would have picked another photographer with a better attitude, especially in stressful situations, which most weddings are.
