Miami wedding Photographer Claudia Oliver Reviews
Destination Wedding: Tulum, Mexico
If you're lucky enough to come across Claudia Oliver's page, do yourself a favor and book her IMMEDIATELY. I've never met another photographer who cared so much about every single picture they take. Claudia puts everything she has into the pictures for your special day and it shows. She came to Mexico for my destination wedding in February and everything went extremely smoothly. She had wonderful advice and suggestions on how to pose and how to make sure we were looking like our best selves in the pictures. She also did an engagement session for us in DC prior to our wedding. It was a great experience getting to know Claudia and working with her on both days. The engagement session really helped us get to know one another and become familiar with her style. We were absolutely blown away when we got our engagement pictures back and knew immediately that our wedding pictures would be just as good if not better! Last night my husband and I spent over two hours laughing and smiling while looking through the many photos Claudia sent of our wedding day. We looked amazing in all of them-- You will be so happy and grateful if you choose Claudia to photograph your special day

Claudia is an amazingly talented photographer and we were incredibly lucky to work with her. From our first appointment we knew that she was the right person for our wedding. We walked her through our priorities and concerns-- we have a significant height difference both between the bride (5') and groom (6'4") and between our families, our ceremony was in the round and therefore complicated to shoot, we wanted the architecture of our venue to be captured beautifully, etc.-- Claudia not only suggestions for us, but a plan to get us all the shots that we wanted. On our wedding day Claudia was like the flash: she was everywhere and she really prioritized making sure that she captured the memories that we (the bride and groom) wanted, even as she was pulled in many directions by family members and surprises throughout the night. She was calm, collected, driven to get the right shot every time. And she did. The result is photos that are artistic, beautiful, and full of love. Claudia dealt beautifully with a complicated set up, tough lighting, used every photogenic corner of our venue, and captured tiny details that even I had forgotten until I saw the pictures. I would really encourage brides to get someone who has an artistic eye in addition to experience shooting weddings-- you'll get much more out of your wedding photos than just you standing at the altar, and Claudia is definitely that person. If I could give any advice to brides it would be to be proactive about getting your photographer a shot list and list of groupings and pairings to capture ahead of your wedding day, it takes up a lot of time and leaves you at risk of forgetting something or someone if you do it on the day of. Thank you so much to Claudia for capturing so many wonderful moments of our big day! We can't wait to use her again to document the other special moments in our lives together.

Claudia was an incredible photographer! She arrived early, was very professional, and took SO many more pictures than expected. We received the photos about 1 month after the wedding and they were all incredible! I used to be a wedding planner so I've worked with a lot of photographers in the past and Claudia is one of the best, I highly recommend her!
I would definitely recommend Claudia Oliver Photography for your engagement and wedding day photos. She is a sweetheart and takes pride in her work which is evident from all of her amazing photos. My now husband and I had our engagement and wedding photos taken by Claudia. We loved how she captures the scenic and landscape views using natural lighting. We took our engagement photos in Washington DC at the Washington Monument and they turned out spectacular. Also, I mentioned to her that I would like to take some pictures with the cherry blossom and she managed to find only a few trees that were still blossomed and those pictures were incredible. She will do her best to accommodate your wishes. She is very driven and determined to take beautiful photos for you. She made sure she captured pictures with our family first before went on tour guest and that was important to us. She worked tirelessly to make sure she captures all the little details like place cards, table setting, venue, my bridal suite. We had individual photos taken along with our first look, the ceremony, and the reception. We couldn’t ask for more. She exceeded our expectations. Honestly, When you choose Claudia, you chose quality not quantity. I absolutely recommend Claudia!

Claudia is incredibly talented and passionate with her work and it definitely shows in her photography! We had our engagement photos taken in DC and Claudia, without hesitation, changed her own plans last minute to accommodate our request for shooting first thing in the morning at 7am. Claudia was so flexible and easy to communicate with throughout the whole process. She was simply amazing on the day of the wedding and we received so many compliments from our friends and family about her. Claudia truly did a spectacular job and we (as well as our family & friends) absolutely love our engagement & wedding photos! We are so happy to have worked with Claudia and we highly recommend her!
I am super happy with my pictures from Claudia. In my search for photographers, I really wanted someone who could provide really bright and fun photos, and Claudia definitely delivered. The pictures are bright, colorful, and elegant, which was exactly what I wanted. The weather was pretty gross out that day, but you can't tell at all. Claudia also had a lot of great ideas for poses and angles, and was very hardworking during the wedding. Lastly, she made sure to get all of the photos that I requested which was really nice.
We worked with Claudia for our September 2015 and at our wedding in April 2016. "Claudia was great to work with! She was very thorough getting all the pictures and angles she could in the time permitting, she was also great working around our schedule and getting almost all of the pictures we had hoped. Claudia was a professional throughout but fun to work with as well! We can’t recommend Claudia enough to anyone looking for a wedding photographer
Claudia was very creative with her shots and the pictures turned out amazing. She took advantage of everything the venue offered. We are so happy with the large number of pictures available to us.
My husband and I knew after the first time we met with Claudia that we wanted her to be our wedding photographer. Her energy was undeniable. She did not disappoint on the day of! They say that you need to make sure you like your photographer, since you will be with them the most and I absolutely love Claudia. We had a great time together and she really did everything in her power to get the pictures she thought would be the best. She is very passionate about what she does and it shines through with all of her effort. I am beyond satisfied with Claudia Oliver Fine Art Photography Studio

Claudia photographed our wedding at the University of Maryland, College Park campus this past weekend. I cannot say enough positive things about her, her work style, and her photographs!!! She consistently goes the extra mile to get the best lighting and angles - at one point she was even laying on the floor to get shots of us with the beautiful dome ceiling in the chapel after our ceremony. She instantly put everyone in our bridal party at ease and we loved how she gave direction. She even calmed me down when I was panicking that we wouldn't get to the chapel on time!!! She made sure to check in with us periodically during the reception to see if we had any specific photo requests. She also made it a point to capture groups who were taking pictures on their iphones so that she could get a professional shot. Our guests couldn't help but notice how great she was too. I can't wait to see the photographs!!! You can't go wrong with Claudia as your photographer and we can't thank her enough
Claudia is an amazing photographer! Once I met her, I knew she will capture my wedding pictures with the smallest detail. She was very patient to listen to my requests since the first interview and took the time to show me everything she has done. She is a very talented photographer and does not rush during the photoshoot, instead she takes the time to capture everything we wanted and beyond. Claudia is always easy to reach and has a great sense of humor! I will recommend her to all my friends and family!!
Claudia was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding (and engagement) photos! Very professional, and of course had great tips for how we should act/pose to make the photos look natural. On top of everything, we had a huge gallery of photos to look through and choose from, with many different options from each of the locations where pictures were taken. Would absolutely recommend Claudia if you're looking for a professional wedding photographer who will capture all of the moments from your big day.
Claudia Oliver was absolutely amazing I am stunned that she was truly able to capture all of the emotions of our wedding day. When browsing photographers in the DMV area and looking at the work they do it is clear that Claudia's pictures are leaps and bounds superior than any other photographer. I was inlove with the pictures she had taken of other couples and we knew immediately that she was the one we wanted to photograph for our wedding. I definitely gave Claudia a challenge by telling her I only wanted 15 minutes of formal pictures after the ceremony because I didn't want to miss any part of the reception. Probably not her favorite request, but it is amazing all the moments she captured, especially given the EXTREMELY short amount of time I gave her. Claudia has such a good eye and was able to immediately know what angle would get the right shot. I couldn't be more grateful to have her be our photographer. She took the time to understand who we were as a couple and how to convey that accurately in photographs. With all the stressful decisions that need to be made leading up to the wedding, we didn't think twice about booking Claudia. I couldn't possibly recommend her more
Words just cannot express!!! Claudia Oliver Photography is amazing!!! I wish there was a way to give Claudia herself a million stars--because 5 just isn't enough! Claudia's passion, drive, focus and talent are just a few of the very many incredibly professional qualities about her and her work. She paid attention to each and every single detail, moment and memory, making our wedding day experience so profoundly special. We consider ourselves very blessed to have had her capture the most important day of our lives and we wholeheartedly endorse her as a professional photographer, creative director and talented artist. If you want the best of the best, do yourself a favor and hire her immediately!
Hiring Claudia was one of the best decisions i made. At our initial visit, she spent time finding out what features i would like minimized or accentuated. She understood we are not comfortable in front of a camera and suggested we do our engagement pics with her as well as a way for us to get comfortable with each other and to get comfortable in front of her camera. We did our engagement pics a month before the wedding and that was a fabulous and beneficial experience. On our wedding day, she took charge and everything went without a hitch. I had provided her with some ideas i had found on pinterest and she recreated all of them. Most importantly, she captured many candid photos which conveyed so much emotion. Some made my cry and some made me burst out laughing. I really got to relive my wedding through the photos she took. We had a sparkler exit and those were fabulous as well. The value?! Worth every penny. In fact, i think she's underpriced. Go for it!!!
Where do I start, great photographer, great personality, very helpful, Every confident in her work, calmed me when I was freaking out, captured every special moments of our big day. Amazing pictures and poses takes a plain pictures and turns it into a beautiful portrait. Me and my husband are very pleased with her work and would definitely recommend her to all our friends

Hands down Claudia was my favorite vendor with whom I interacted on my wedding day! So happy we hired her! She is extremely talented with lighting! I'm not comfortable having my photo taken but I longed to look like a super model in my wedding pics. Miraculously, Claudia made it happen! She has such an energetic, fun personality. When she began to photograph me she told me to loosen up with a glass of champagne and the rest was history. She worked tirelessly throughout our entire wedding day carried multiple cameras and flashes all over the vineyard. At one point I felt so bad that she was working so hard I offered to help her and she refused. When she wasn't photographing us she was photographing our families. We would hire her again in a heart beaof my work you t!
