Oh hey! My name is Claire Hadler, and I am a wedding // couple // portrait photographer, but honestly, I just want to capture your moments no matter the occasion! 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

PHOTOGRAPHY IS TRULY MY VESSEL.

MY CALLING.

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.

My husband and I had our engagement pictures taken by Claire, and it was an experience I will never forget. Claire is so personable, works with you and your personality so well, and captures your own love story in every photo that she takes. My husband isn’t a big picture taker, but even he thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures with Claire. The day of our engagement session is one of our favorite memories together, and the pictures turned out more beautiful than I could’ve imagined.

This means that my spring 2022 photo schedule will look a little different this year.

BUT, still inquire !! Even if it is for a date during this time, because I can connect you
