HI, I'M MATTIE CLAIRE.

+ + +

I am an intimate wedding and elopement photographer

with a whole lot of heart.


Standing at a towering five foot three, I am a Texas gal that found her way to Arkansas + has joyfully called the Natural State home for the last 3 years. I have a whole lot of heart that surpasses the photos that you will see on my website. The passion of it all runs way deeper and I am convinced that this is the best job because of the people - like you. It really is why I do this and I have to say that I want to be your biggest teammate on this side of things. I am here to serve you and fulfill the visions and dreams you have for the days that you will remember for eternity. 

What you have is special and you have worked hard for it. Needless to say, it is deserving of celebration, detail, diligence, and is art. I am in the business of creating honest images for soulful lovers that desire to have moments of time frozen into something that will be looked at and remembered for generations to come.
