"If I could tell a story in words . . . I wouldn't need a camera."
~~ Lewis Hine


Hi! My name is Gillian Claire and I am the Artist, Owner, and Mastermind behind all you see on this website.

My art is my voice, a piece of me. I have to pinch myself daily because I get invited to peoples weddings not just to witness this beautiful event but to record it and tell the love story of 2 people for them to cherish for the rest of their lives. I just love what I do!

I consider myself not just a photographer but a storyteller. My job is not to take photographs of people but to tell their story. I want you to look back at your photographs and see not just what was but to remember the story behind the captured moment. I focus on expressions, emotions, and relationships because those are the items that trigger our memories.

My inspiration is my family. I could not have gotten luckier than when I met my fabulous husband Joe. We have a 12 year old princess named Alexis, and our 6 year old Queen (for those that know her, yes, she is the Queen) Sophia. Our dog Jeter rounds out this crazy crew. They challenge me every day and I can't imagine my life without them or any less hectic :)

I hope you enjoy my website but if you’re looking for that human touch, please give me a call. I would LOVE to get a cup of Tea and sit and chat.

Enjoy!

Gillian Claire

We loved Gillian so much! Our pictures are amazing and she was so much fun to work with. We had a tiny wedding, so our guests got to know her too. Everyone absolutely loved her and talked about booking her for sessions with their kids when they come back to Pawleys. Gillian and I got each other and bonded immediately. We could not be any happier. Seriously.

Gillian made us feel special right off the bat. We met her at a bridal expo and instantly fell in love with her personality and photos. The quality that shooting in film offers is hard to find these days. We stayed in touch throughout the planning process and then her and her assistant, Casie, drove up to the outer banks where the wedding was held. They both made sure that all of our special moments were captured all while smiling, laughing, and having a great time!

As Mother of the Bride, I wanted to have a wonderful memory record of the day and a beautiful bridal portrait photograph. Gillian exceeded my expectations by a mile. She was completely unaptrusive during the service and the reception. We have many, many wonderful pictures of the day that captured the joy. My Daughter's Bridal Portrait session was amazing. We had far too many photographs to choose from...which is a great problem to have. Gillian captured our family picture (my Christmas card) with one shot.
Gillian Clare is a Mother of the Bride's dream photographer. She is professional, but has a wonderful personality that made everything run smoothly.
