Words can't describe how wonderful Claire is - we hired her to photograph our wedding and she absolutely blew us away. Her enthusiasm proves she loves every second of what she does and the end results are an absolute credit to her. We've only seen a handful of the photos she captured on the day, but WOW, we cannot wait to see the rest. A million thank you's for capturing our day in your "Unique" way!

"Claire was very easy going and took our ideas on board. She was very patient with us and helped us relax during our pre- wedding shoot and during the wedding itself. She gave really good direction during the photo shoot an definitely managed to make 2 non- photogenic people look great in their wedding photos!:) Most importantly, Claire was very discreet and managed to capture all the beautiful moments during our wedding without getting in the way of the ceremony. Overall, a 5-star experience!
We met Claire in person and instantly felt that we had a great rapport with her. The wedding packages on offer were excellent value for money and the quality of photos were on par if not better than some of the more expensive wedding photographers in the market."
Claire was a true professional
"Having known Claire for a good few years now .. this may sound a bit biased but it's not .. I've had the pleasure of working along side Claire many many times in the wedding environment and each time you couldn't want more from a tog .. today however it's finally sunk in just how good Claire is at her craft !! Myself and my partner took our 16 day old baby boy round to Claire's studio for some photos .. Claire was so welcoming we felt at home straight away !! The way she looked after our baby boy was like watching her look after one of her own !! She was amazing .. so soft .. so gentle !! Honestly if you ever wanted some photos of your new born baby .. once you've finished reading this .. get yourself booked in .. you won't regret it !!"

"I cannot recommend Claire Sullivan of Unique Image Photography highly enough. The quality of her pictures are second to none and her albums are stunning. As soon as I saw Claire's work at a wedding fair, I knew that I wanted her to photograph our wedding. The pre-wedding shoot was a fantastic idea and helped to put both me and my partner at ease on the day of our wedding. On the wedding day, Claire was a true professional, but unobtrusive. She made sure that we took time alone to take in the day.The quality of Claire's work, her personality, relaxed and easy going, yet professional style"
her albums are stunning
"Claire did my baby bump photos and newborn photos of my daughter. It was a lovely experience having her come to our home. I was very comfortable with her which was fantastic, especially as the bump shoot involved getting my kit off! She was really great with the baby, took lots of time and was very patient-no mother of a newborn wants to feel under pressure to get her baby settled! And the resulting shots are great!"
Claire was recommended to us by our wedding venue, Cooling Castle Barn. The rest is history. Claire got to know us at a pre-wedding shoot and beautifully captured our day. We are always being asked who did our wedding photos. We walked away that day with more than excellent photos but a lifelong friend. Two years later when we fell pregnant claire shot our announcement photos and when our little man arrived she captured just how perfect he is. She is amazing with children, parents, stressed out brides you name it. I would highly recommend her to all X

She is amazing
The venue, The Lost Village of Dode, recommended a number of photographers including Unique Image Photography. I reviewed Claire's work and chatted with her over the phone and face to face and I knew that she would be perfect for us.
Claire worked with a camera shy bride and groom, owls, kids, family and friends and the results were amazing. She captured the very essence of the fun and intimacy of the wedding. People were not aware that they were being framed some of the time and she had a relaxed, but professional presence which went down terrifically well. We are both delighted with the photos, as are our friends. Awesome, unique, brilliant!
I knew that she would be perfect for us
"The first time we met Claire from Unique Image Photography, it was like meeting a friend, she made us feel so relaxed and was very welcoming towards us and our little girl. Neither me or my husband like having our photo taken so to be honest we were dreading that part of the day but we needn't have worried most of the time we didn't even realise photos were being taken and when it did come to the 'posed' ones Claire made us feel so comfortable, even when it came to the kissing ones!! She was fab. We visited Claire because she had been recommended to us by a friend of my husbands and after meeting her we knew she was the photographer for us just because of how she made us feel, like I said it was like talking to a friend not a stranger. Claire was and is lovely!”
she made us feel so relaxed
I was recommended Claire as a newborn photographer by a few ladies on mummy's gin fund. After having had a really disappointing shoot done for my first son by somebody else I was keen to find someone good who could capture some lovely natural shots I could treasure forever of my newborn twins . Claire did just this. She was incredibly patient and gentle and took her time to capture some lovely moments between my daughter and son. She didn't mind stopping for feeding and changing too and even helped with this too.
You can see she loves what she does and puts a lot of love and time into her work. Thank you Claire!Kerry, Bickley
"Claire from Unique Image Photography was the best photographer a Bride and Groom could ever ask for. She made us feel so relaxed and at ease on the day, which made the whole experience fun and memorable fun us. Our Album is amazing!! We cannot thank her enough for her time and creativity. She has captured our wedding story perfectly so we have the memories to look back on forever. A very talented lady!
“I saw Claire working at a friends wedding a few years ago, I loved how she was with the Bride and Groom, they didn't seem fazed or tired of having their pictures taken by her, she was so lovely!! Plus I remember seeing the finished album a few weeks later and loved her style!”
Mrs Sarah Daniele
the best photographer a Bride and Groom could ever ask for.
“Claire arrived at my parents house on the morning of our wedding and fitted in perfectly around everything that was going on. My parents and bridesmaids who were a little nervous straight away felt at ease and comfortable with Claire. She was present when needed to be and quietly fitted in mingling with the guests capturing natural shots. I had full trust in Claire that she would capture our day in the most magical way and provide us with beautiful photos we can look over for years to come.” Claire made us feel at ease straight away, so having this in Claire's hands was something we didn't need to worry about for out wedding as Claire was so professional and helpful it made our whole wedding that more special. We knew we would have amazing photographs.”

“Claire was very professional and friendly from start to finish, since we met her at the blue water wedding fair. Everything was spot on and any request we had where met no problem. I'd highly recommend Claire to anyone needing a wedding photographer.”
Mr David Whiteley
professional and friendly from start to finish
“Claire was wonderful to work with and she made everything so much easier with the planning and organising of our photos. I have recommended her to all my friends getting married as she has done such an amazing job of our album and copy albums that our parents have. She managed to perfectly capture all of the special moments throughout the day, and some funny ones too!” Got on well having met Claire and, following seeing examples of her work, was confident that she would do a good job on our wedding photography.”
Mrs Isabel Fixter (Loh)
she made everything so much easier
“Claire captured the expressions of guests and wedding party unaware very well. Was able to use surroundings and make the venue for the photographs look stunning.” I felt an instant connection with Claire after meeting her."
Mrs Dora Willcox (Murphy)
the photographs look stunning
Having had Claire do my wedding photos she was my first choice for my newborn shoot.
Claire made the whole experience an absolute pleasure and you can tell she has a real passion and talent as my little one was very comfortable and at ease for the whole shoot. She allowed plenty of time for feeds and changes and even helped out!
Can't wait to see all the photos.
Would highly recommend.
