A little about me, I’m Claire Brewer, a forty (ahem) something wedding photographer living in a little village called Hurstpierpoint nestled in the beautiful Sussex Downs and about 10 minutes from Brighton. I am a mother to two energetic, handsome (c’mon I may be biased but….) boys and wife to Rhys who works in the big smoke every day. I love fresh air, coffee, tennis and chatting enthusiastically with my friends. The way to my heart is a hug or a glass of red with a smile or some laughter. I am a firm believer that music makes the world go round, and was probably born a decade too late as I never really appreciated flares and flicks enough as a child!
I picked up a camera when I had my boys and loved it so much that I studied and successfully completed my Diploma in Photography with The Photography Institute. I am currently in the process of enrolling in the Master Photographer’s Association, which is a national governing body for photographers.
I honestly think I have the best job in the world. Being a wedding photographer is the only thing I want to do in my work life. Meeting new couples as they are about to start on their journey together is the best. As is meeting their friends and family and travelling to new towns and villages. I would travel to any town, city, country – take me overseas if you must! It’s amazing documenting your day and seeing your face when I give you those images that hold your memories.
I like to keep things simple, be a fly on the wall so to speak. If you don’t want to pose, then don’t. If you don’t want to smile, then don’t. Of course I will give you some direction during those couple shots or group shots but I want to capture all those natural reactions you have with your loved ones. This shows the real story, the real you, not how you perform in front of a lens. I try to make each shoot stress free and fun, this is a lovely thing to do not a headache, you will leave me pleasantly surprised at how painless it all was.
The best way to compliment a photographer is to book them, so go on call me or send me an email, I’d love to hear from you.
