Images for a Lifetime!

From start to finish, Clane was an absolute dream to work with. His vision and ability to capture our day is unlike any other - truly a league of his own. He made us feel relaxed and truly captured the most unbelievable images of our day. We are so grateful to him for his incredible work - we will truly cherish these images for the rest of our lives and couldn't imagine anyone else capturing these special moments. I assure you he will go above and beyond and deliver images that you couldn't have even dreamed of. Thank you, Clane and Team. We absolutely adore you. With love, The Smiths

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.

Clane is just amazing at photography! I love watching his work and seeing his latest and greatest photography. Clane was shooting a styled shoot I did a little while ago, and I am so very happy with the images he gave me! I would highly recommend Clane to my couples, and can't wait to work with him and his team again soon! ~Simply by Tamara Nicole~
