Luke and Alisha joined us for our wedding weekend to capture our Wedding and Rehearsal Dinner- and we were completely impressed the entire time. They were fun but professional, encouraging but provided great advice, and just plan GOOD without being noticeable in the slightest. We are so incredibly thrilled and thankful to have had them for our day, and having received our photos just a few weeks ago, we can truly say that there is a wow factor. The moments, emotions, and classic formal shots they were able to capture for us have let us relive our most favorite weekend yet. The photo portfolio is incredibly diverse- great action shots, great formals, and great images of decor etc- truly a testament to the talent and hear that goes into this challenging job. Luke and his entire staff is also incredibly responsive- holding our hand literally from the time we signed the contract and even still now. Every email sent was responded to within just an hour- usually immediately. We feel so fortunate to have had them join us.

We had Clark+Walker do our photography and videography and it was perfect! We worked with Andrew, Nicole, Josh & Jim and they were all very nice, professional, and worked so well with each other. When we were on our honeymoon we received the link to our pictures and a couple weeks later we received the video trailer. The day goes by so fast its important to have a something to remember it by and a memory to keep with you forever. We loved it all and so did our family and friends!

We were so fortunate to have Alisha & Nicole at our wedding... they went above and beyond. They helped with things you wouldn't have even expected and they literally did anything they could to do the shot... climbing in snow/mud, up trees... I've never seen anything like it. They are the best of the best and truly one of the best decisions we made. Our night went so incredibly fast that I am so glad we will have the most stunning pictures to look back on the rest of our lives. These pictures are drop dead gorgeous and they will surely decorate the walls of our home for years and years to come! We will surely be life long customers of Alisha!

We cannot thank Luke and his team enough for all their amazing work. Our wedding pictures are absolutely beautiful and we are waiting for our video to be completed. Judging from the pictures, I cannot only imagine how AMAZING the video will be. Luke and his team are a great group of fun guys. They do not make you feel like they are invading your space at all. Our families were so happy with our pictures and agreed that Clark and Walker is in a league of their own! Thank you again for everything.

Luke and Andrew were amazing from start to finish. We not only had Luke do the photography for our wedding, but he also came to NYC during the week to shoot an engagement photo session without hesitation. They treated us with respect, professionalism, and care to meet all our needs. We wanted out pictures to be timeless, and because of Clark + Walker studio, we will enjoy our pictures for years and years to come. Simply the best.

Josh of Clark and Walker Studo was a true professional! He made us feel so comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. The quality of his work is exceptional! Both our wedding trailer and video are beyond any expectation which makes it hard to stop watching. In his films, Josh highlighted many of our special moments throughout our day which bring tears to our eyes everytime we watch. Not only did he capture intimate moments between us, but fun moments with our families, bridal party, and guests. Everytime we watch our video it is like we are reliving our wedding. Not only was Josh professional and easy to work with, but any staff we came in contact with was professional and eager to please. I would HIGHLY recommend Clark and Walker Studio to any bride or groom looking for an exceptional video and service.

It's hard to sum up in a few words how amazing the Clark + Walker team is. Luke and Josh served as our main photographer and videographer. They helped us not only on the big day, but throughout the planning process answering questions and providing advice. They were responsive, fun, relaxed yet professional, and most importantly captured our day PERFECTLY. There are so many other studios out there, but I can promise you that you will not be disappointed by choosing the C + W team! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10102532009369845.3385713.12402230&type=1&l=49b1a62194

Luke and Andrew were amazing. My wedding was in Boston and I live just north of Boston so we were not actually able to meet in person before the wedding (as we did not do an engagement session). I was a little nervous about this at first but Luke and I exchange numerous emails (he was always extremely responsive and remembered every little detail I had emailed him before that we wanted to capture) and we had a call with Luke a couple of weeks before the wedding which put me completely at ease. Luke was so friendly and easy going but still super professional and we could tell he really knew what he was doing/talking about. On the day of, Luke and Andrew arrived early and just got right to business without being intrusive at all - they totally blended into our family and friends. We had a pretty tight timeline for the day but Luke and Andre breezed through it with ease and we were actually way ahead of schedule and managed to get some extra shots (that turned out AMAZING!). On top of all that, we had such a fun time with them. So far we have only seem a hand full of photos (our preview on their blog), but they are beyond anything we could have imagined. They were stunning - our family and friends are raving about the photos and constantly asking where we found such amazing photographers. We cannot wait to see the rest of our photos! THANK YOU Luke and Andrew for capturing our day so beautifully!

Clark + Walker (Alisha) was amazing on our day. My husband and I are not fans of posing for photos and we were nervous about having a photographer making us pose every minute of our day. NOT THE CASE!! Alisha did the necessary shots and then we didn't even notice she was there. She was so easy to work with and great with the entire family. Her patience and professionalism are amazing, she didnt miss a beat or a great shot. I will be calling Alisha when we start our family to take our baby shots without a doubt.

Photography was a top priority for us and we are so happy we hired Clark & Walker Studio for our wedding day. Luke Walker was wonderful to work with right from the start. From our first conversation, he expressed such excitement and enthusiasm for all that we were planning which really meant a lot and assured me we were making the right choice. Their work is truly phenomenal. Check out their blog and wedding section of their website –the proof is in the pudding.

We were so happy with the wedding photographs that we wished we had hired Clark & Walker for engagement pics and even had them at our Rehearsal Dinner. We also hired them for videography and although we haven’t seen the video as of yet, based on our experience thus far I have no doubt that I’ll be returning to Wedding Wire raving.

In the planning process, Luke helped me make decisions and gave great ideas. He was in close communication with us especially in the days leading up to the wedding and worked with our coordinator to ensure that everything we wanted was in place and he made our happiness a top concern. In terms of professionalism and responsiveness in particular, I would give them 6 stars if I could. Our portraits and family formals came out beautiful, and getting ready candids were so special. Just looking at our photographs I can remember the emotion I felt in the moment it was taken. What more can a bride ask for?

Thank you Luke and team for your amazing talent!

Luke was happily willing to take any shots that we wanted and was great about taking shots that we didn't even realize we wanted until we saw the proofs!

We feel that they truly captured our joy that day. Thank you Luke and Nicole!

Our wedding blog and countless amazing photos were available for us to see within weeks! Our wedding day weather was not the greatest, but you know you have an amazing photographer when the pictures still come out fantastic. We would HIGHLY recommend Luke + Alisha (+ their entire team) to any couple getting married. When you hire reputable photographers, you have one less stress to worry about. You can feel confident that you are going to get the best pictures! We did and we are so grateful!

Josh of Clark and Walker Studio for videography did an amazing job at our wedding last month. While I had initially booked with a different member of their team earlier in the year, Josh jumped right in and was highly responsive and helpful in the planning process for our day. When our day arrived his creative presence was felt throughout his time with us yet he was unobtrusive in his shooting style. I can't wait to see the final product because I absolutely know it's going to be amazing. Be sure to check out his work on their website, it's beautiful!!

My husband and I regularly look at our blog pictures, and we are having a tough time selecting which pictures we want to purchase since there are so many that we love! I was able to communicate directly with Luke via e-mail throughout the year prior to our wedding day. He was extremely prompt in responding to my questions/concerns and always seemed genuinely interested in hearing about our vision/plans for our special day. We would highly recommend selecting Luke and Clark+Walker Studios for your special day!

The quality of Luke's photographs was acceptable, but he failed to take a single picture of my wedding's cocktail hour. 50 minutes elapsed when he took no pictures at all. When confronted with this, he became defensive, angry, and insulting. Luke repeatedly accused me of lying about the 50 minute gap. However, he was unable to produce a picture from that time. It is important to note this was not during dinner when we was, of course, welcome to stop shooting while he ate and rested. Some other notes from the exchange:

- He resorted to personal insults by calling me a “cheesy” “micromanager.”

- He said he called his wife on the drive home to say shooting my wedding was “not worth it.” It doesn’t feel great to hear that from a vendor you chose.

- He continually defended himself by saying he “worked hard.” To me, if you don’t take a picture for nearly an hour when you’re being paid $500 per hour to take pictures, something is very wrong.
We still don’t know what he was doing for those 50 minutes while he wasn’t taking pictures. All he said was he spoke with our DJ and the hotel’s coordinator.

A few other notes:

- He's a good photographer, but arguably relies on warm, sunset lighting too heavily.

- In person, he is very pleasant and was charming to our guests at the wedding.

-He seems most comfortable shooting posed portraits. That's not a critique, but is something you should be aware of if you would like more of an organic, "documentary" feeling.

It's unfortunate Luke didn't respond professionally when confronted with his not photographing our cocktail hour. He's a talented photographer and a nice guy when he's not questioned, but clearly doesn't respond appropriately to valid concerns. I cannot recommend a vendor who treats his customers disrespectfully. I would also invite you to read my other reviews. I'm not a person who nit-picks vendors to find fault; in fact, this is the only negative review I gave.

The quality of Luke's photographs was acceptable, but he failed to take a single picture of my wedding's cocktail hour. 50 minutes elapsed when he took no pictures at all. When confronted with this, he became defensive, angry, and insulting. Luke repeatedly accused me of lying about the 50 minute gap. However, he was unable to produce a picture from that time. It is important to note this was not during dinner when we was, of course, welcome to stop shooting while he ate and rested. Some other notes from the exchange:

- He resorted to personal insults by calling me a “cheesy” “micromanager.”

- He said he called his wife on the drive home to say shooting my wedding was “not worth it.” It doesn’t feel great to hear that from a vendor you chose.

- He continually defended himself by saying he “worked hard.” To me, if you don’t take a picture for nearly an hour when you’re being paid $500 per hour to take pictures, something is very wrong.

We had Josh on video and Luke on photography, as well as a couple other C+W team members supporting them. From our engagement photos to our wedding photos to our video, C+W was amazing and delivered the most beautiful images and video. The value of their product is well worth the price and their unobtrusive style and laid back personalities make it a joy to have them around during such a special time. I will continue to be a loyal customer and look forward to seeing the team again.

Luke walker and his team far exceeded our expectations!! Luke was recommended to us and I immediately knew he was going to do a great job. speaking with him eased my nerves about selecting a photographer. We had an engagement shoot that was a blast and the photos were amazing!!! After seeing those we were even more excited about the wedding day. An absolute professional, so much fun, and sooo talented. Worth every penny!!

If you can imagine, two weeks before my wedding I was in a pinch for a new photographer - long story... Anyway, Alisha was so friendly, accommodating, very responsive and just fabulous to work with. I absolutely love her work and cannot tell you enough about how happy we are with how the pictures came out for the wedding. Everyone was raving about them when I sent out the blog link. They are just stunning and her point of view and eye for the best shot can't be beat.

I feel photography is one of the most important elements to a wedding as the pictures will last a lifetime. I am grateful that we went with Clark+Walker and can continue to look back on our perfect wonderful day together through her eyes.

Working with Luke from Clark+Walker was the best decision I made while planning our dream wedding. From the very first conversation we had, Luke felt like a supportive and honest friend who I could count on throughout this process. I instantly knew I wanted to work with him! He was so sweet – asking me about other plans we were making, giving advice about other elements of the wedding when I needed it and even helped me decide on the perfect dress! (He photographs tons of dresses and had great advice!) With his extensive knowledge of weddings and the wedding world, I always trusted his opinion and it paid off. Our photos of the day were really important to me since I am constantly documenting every event – but I didn’t even think about it and let Luke take over completely and I am so glad I did! The pictures I have seen are fabulous, totally “us” and I could not have had such a calm, wonderful day without him. I know my mom and my husband share my sentiments because they can’t stop raving about him either!

I absolutely love Luke from Clark+Walker Studio and would recommend him to anyone. Not only is he incredibly talented, but he's also very laid back and so much fun to work with. Our wedding was just this weekend and I've already seen a few pictures from our day, and am so excited to see the rest!!
I highly recommend doing an engagement session before your wedding day, it definitely helps to break the ice and get used to having pictures taken of you.

Luke and his crew did both our photography (Luke is now dba Clark Walker Studios) and videography (via their sister company, Lillie Studios). AMAZING doesn't even begin to explain them! They were flexible, friendly, so much fun and on top of it we have a beautiful video and wedding album that everyone is blown away by! It would be a mistake to go with anyone else!

Luke has become a great friend of ours in the process. He has a great personality and has a great eye. We had a lot of fun with him. Already we've seen proof that he was a great choice for us. His photos are beautiful and very artistic. We loved the photos we've seen so far. Can't wait to see more!

Luke did an amazing job with our engagement shoot all over NYC. On the day of our wedding, Luke and Alisha did can incredible job! Chris did our video, and it was a fairly new offering for the studio, and it turned out great as well. We also tacked on a photo booth that was not only original, but super fun! Overall, we were thrilled with the service, quality, and beautiful memories!

I cannot say enough nice things about Alisha Clark. She was by far the best vendor I hired for our wedding. Our photos are amazing and I still look at my wedding album and see something I didn't notice before. She answered all of my emails within 24 hours and even provided advice for other areas of our wedding beyond photography. Cheesy but I really feel like I not only hired a photographer but made a life long friend.
