Hi, I'm Mattie Claire.

California BASED

wedding photographer


Hello, I am Mattie! Some call me Mattie and others, Mattie Claire. For one, can I just say how grateful I am to have you here!? Gosh, you could choose to be anywhere on the web and you have chosen to hop on here and that means a great deal to me. I am a wedding photographer who calls San Francisco, CA my home and I am still pinching myself that I get to do so. This journey has been far from boring. It has been more than I ever could of imagined. My adventurous spirit has led me to the west coast and photography has become one of the greatest joys of my life. It has given me grit and gumption and allowed me to connect with people while documenting their own connections with one another - not something I take lightly.

The philosophy behind my business comes from a pure, artistic approach. My mission is to create honest imagery for the people. Your love in unique, wild, glorious, and deserving of celebration because life is too short to not climb a mountain, dance in the desert, or look your best friend in the face and decide that forever with them is far better than a day apart. You promise your lives to one another on your wedding day and I want to be there. The honest images that I desire to take are to be given back to you with loving hands so that you may treasure them forever. They are your story unfolding. I want to be more than just your wedding photographer. What does that mean? This means that I get invested in my couples and many become forever friends that have left their mark of kindness on me through the opportunity to photograph their love. THIS is the reason why I love what I do.

I sincerely hope to be apart of your story.

Think we would be a good fit?

HECK YEAH. Let’s go ahead and create something beautiful.
