Before my life in Spokane, I grew up in a small dairy-farm town with five sisters and one brother. Now, I live in Spokane aka my favorite place in the world, and have 51 chickens and a mini donkey named Olaf. I am smack dab in the middle of my siblings so I am the fun, crazy, donut filling to my family. You could say I know my way around loud family gatherings so even if you are overwhelmed with your family photos, I will be right there making sure you are laughing through your whole wedding day! I’m here to capture all your friends and family, even if your great-grandma has to leave the reception early. No bad hair day or opinionated cousin is going to stop me from helping you cherish these moments for the rest of your life. I'll be assertive when necessary, so you can actually spend your day celebrating instead of taking 2 hours to get family photos done.
I love to laugh, a lot. So, don't worry about things being awkward or not knowing how to pose. I'm not about stiff-posed images, but instead about evoking emotion. When I say I will take care of everything, I mean it. I'm here for you. From creating a custom wedding timeline to sending you pictures of the perfect locations for your engagement session. I love to plan, so basically you're not allowed to stress about anything wedding-related. You get to enjoy the exciting time of being engaged and allow me to be your resource and greatest encourager.

"I had the pleasure of working with Clara Jay this past weekend. As a Wedding Planner and we work very close with our photographers and Clara Jay was such a joy. She exudes professionalism with such calm. We call ourselves the Dream Team now. I can't wait to work with her again! She surprised me with a sneak peek gallery of our lovely couple! Only 3 days after their wedding! Something I have never received from other photographers in 10 years!!!! She Rocks! And...the pictures are beyond my expectations!!! You definitely will love her! She is a must at your wedding!
