Cute pics & Tips and Tricks

On the rare occasion it snows HEAVILY in Southern California, you best believe I’ll be there to snap some pics. These cuties really wanted to shoot in the snow, and since it snowed so close to home, it worked out perfectly!

“Clarisse has got the “eye” for the perfect photo. But more importantly, she knows how to make being in front of the camera approachable. You feel relaxed, at ease, happy. And that’s what life – and how it’s captured – should be all about, right!? What we got was a friend – we still keep in touch with Clarisse weekly – and memories that will make us smile for decades! “6 stars” if I could give it, Clarisse. Keep. On. Hustlin’!”

“Not only is Clarisse’s work creative, stylistic, and high quality, she is an awesome person. The first time we met her was at our proposal/engagement session, but we felt like we’d known Clarisse for years. Adam and I are both wedding photographers and videographers – we’re much more comfortable behind the camera. Clarisse put us at ease and helped us feel relaxed. More importantly, she helped us have fun!”

“Clarisse is absolutely amazing! She helped my fiancé and I pick the perfect spot to shoot our engagement pictures and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She made us laugh throughout the whole shoot so our pictures were very fun and lighthearted! Super quick turnaround time on getting our edited photos back and we love them so much! Cannot wait to see what awesome pictures she captures at our wedding this May! Thanks so much Clarisse!!”

“Clarisse did an exceptional job as our wedding photographer. She is creative, fun and down to earth which makes her so easy to work with!

One thing that truly makes Clarisse standout as a photographer, is her ability to capture real, authentic joy in the photos she takes. All of our engagement and wedding photos don’t look overly posed or cheesy. The photos look so natural and you can see how happy we truly are. We had such a terrific experience with Clarisse as our photographer!”

Probably one of my favorite weddings I have ever shot EVER. It’s easy to see why! Idaho is super pretty who would have thought?!

Shot over to Palm Springs, CA to take Lindsey & Andre’s engagement photos a few weeks back and had a BLAST! There’s just something about this place that feels almost MAGICAL if that makes sense. It’s like a little time capsule with suuuuch a killer aesthetic. Big fan!
