I have never seen such amazing fairytale -like wedding photos.
It is every bride’s dream to have a photographer like Dayle.
Working with Dayle Ann Clavin was highly professional and fun at the same time.
When we found Dayle’s Website, we were mesmerized by the way she captures all sorts of wedding couples.
She gently led us through the preparatory phase and was solid as a rock on our wedding day.
We were rewarded with once in- a- lifetime memories.
We still look at our wedding pictures in wonder every day.
We contacted Dayle, because her photos are very special. They are sensual, romantic, and resourceful. Dayle captured all our important moments with her camera and was a very nice and pleasant guest. We were really happy to have Dayle on our side on the most beautiful day of our lives.
Dayle Ann tells the story of the wedding with her pictures. We were very impressed with their work. Also the special processing of the photos, with focus on colors, lifts them off from other photographers.

Many thanks for the wedding pictures! They are just wonderful! We felt extremely comfortable with you. Your caring and humourful personality made you the perfect choice for us. And the pictures are simply marvelous. Thanks!

From the beginning we were immediately sure that our wedding pictures were in good hands with Dayle Ann. Her enthusiasm and her stamina are contagious. Looking back, we should have had a test shoot before the wedding day after seeing that under Dayle Ann’s direction the second portrait session was much more relaxed.
