welcome, i love you already.

i'm so glad you're here!

Hi friends!! My name is Claire Hadler, and I am a wedding + engagement + editorial photographer who desires to tell your story in an authentic and unique way. I have been passionate about creating ever since I was ten years old, and my passion just keeps growing. The only reason I am here and can do this creative job is because of THE creator, and I pray through our session you catch a glimpse of how beautiful you are, and how the Lord uses love in beautiful ways.
welcome to byclairehadler.

more about me

here, i believe photography is more than just a click.

Photography is truly my calling. my vessel.

for capturing moments + for storytelling + for ministry.

I want this to be an experience that is so life-giving and full of the giddiest of smiles, belly laughs, happy cries, and pure joy. And while this time is hopefully life-giving, I also pray that it is light-giving, and reflects back to the Light of the World, Jesus.

Photography is my ministry, and while I promise to provide you with a beautiful experience and authentic imagery, I also promise that you will leave your session feeling encouraged and built up in truth and deep love that Jesus provides for us.


the experience



“We wish that everyone would be so lucky to have Claire as their wedding photographer!! Claire is the whole package. Not only is she gifted and creative when it comes to photography, she is also so sweet and professional. Her ability to capture people on their special day is unlike anything we had ever seen. She captures movement, expressions, and emotions in the most beautiful and unique way. We are over the moon happy that we picked Claire for our wedding day.”
