Clara shot our engagement photos. She is fantastic with light, very easy to work with and wonderfully creative with her composition. My partner and I felt at ease throughout the shoot. I could not be happier!

Clara has one of the best approaches I have ever seen a photographer take (I have worked with many throughout my career). She's sweet, a great listener, and a keen observer. She instantly made us feel comfortable during our shoot and was very flexible at any random question or request that popped in my head throughout. Not only was the experience and her character wonderful, but her photos and editing are fantastic! I am so in love with the pictures and the artistry behind them. She captured such a special time and I cannot sing her praises enough! You are in great hands with Clara!

Clara was a dream to work with. She did come as a word of mouth recommendation & she shot a friend's wedding. I loved my friend's photos & was hopeful I'd have photos I love similarly -- and boy, were my expectations exceeded! :)
The process -- we contacted Clara, and she got us on the phone right away to learn about us & what we wanted as a final product. She knows what she is doing. She was super opened minded to locations to shoot at & has many on her blog you can look at. She's a Bay Area native & knows great spots to shoot in.
Sadly, the Napa fires started just 2 days prior to our planned engagement session. I felt selfish for worrying about that while others were losing homes... Clara reassured me that it would work out. And it truly did. Some of the photos look like an incredible sci-fi scene. And there is something tragic & beautiful in taking photos with the man you love and being reminded that life is unpredictable. Enjoy the moments you have... But I digress too much.
Clara was incredibly supportive throughout the shoot & knowing that I was anxious - she shared some visuals with me as she was taking photos to reassure me.
Also, with the fires starting, we changed our mind on location a few times & Clara was honest about her schedule & flexible to make a location and time work on the day was specified. True professional.
Clara was incredibly responsive to my inquiry. Always responded to email within 24 hours - unless she had pre-warned us she was going to be on another shoot or out of town. Also, if she said she would send you something - she would. She sent us some great teasers within a day of the shoot, and she did. It was super helpful in tiding us over while we waited for the final product.
She is very relaxed & easy to talk to. We were worried about being posed & feeling uncomfortable - but right from the start, she was an excellent photographer.
I would absolutely recommend her for any type of photo session.
