These two. Epitome of cool. Have you seen their work? If so, I shouldn't need to say anything else then, but I will because they are so amazing. My wife and I both love photography – it was actually something that brought us together – and we hired them before we had done anything else for the wedding. Their pictures have a simplicity and beauty that I am continually impressed with, and I really admire their talent. To capture those kinds of images, you have to reflect those things as a person, and they both do. They are humble, genuine, and funny people whose presence makes you confident and at ease. Before taking pictures together, we were nervous about what it was going to be like. How often do you pose and kiss your significant other in front of someone comfortably unless you’re a Kardashian? But we showed up at our first meeting with Jes and were mildly obsessed with her ability and ease. They direct you in a way that makes the whole thing entirely natural and fun, which is a real testament to their skill and enjoyment of what they do. It’s only three days after the wedding, and I’ve already had my entire family and dozens of friends comment on how amazing their photographs are – and they’ve only sent a few! Last piece of advice (besides hiring them immediately to take pictures of anything in your life that could possibly need picture taking), get the Unbooth. The pictures are not only incredible quality, but I have lost count of how many guests told me it was the most fun they had at the wedding. Plus, my entire Facebook news feed has been filled with friends posting and commenting on their pictures today, because your guests can download them the very next day! We LOVE the Clewells.
Some brides care most about their flowers. Some care most about the food. I care most about what will last beyond this one special day (besides the vows): the photos. When choosing a photographer, I did a lot of research. Since photos mean so much to me, I wasn't willing to compromise on quality. When I found Clewell Photography, I knew they were the ones. We just had our engagement shoot with Jessie, and it was so much fun! She spent time making sure to capture every detail, and somehow even managed to snap what I consider to be an insane amount of good photos of us (I am not photogenic at all). While this service isn't cheap, I'm a true believer in "you get what you pay for." In fact, for an e-shoot, boudoir shoot, and 8-hours of the wedding day, I think the price is very reasonable... a perfect package!
Kris and Jes are absolutely amazing at what they do. They really listen to their customers and make sure that they capture all of the moments that you want. Our families were amazed at how efficient they were at getting family portraits done and making sure that they got everyone. Our final photos were amazing, and we got so many amazing photos that I cannot wait to put them all around the house! Thank you Kris and Jes for making sure that we captured all of our wedding day!
We just booked Clewell Photography for our engagement and wedding photos and could not be more excited! We spent countless hours researching wedding photographers and finally narrowed down our selection to a handful of the very best photographers in the Twin Cities. Ultimately, Kris & Jess Clewell's work product and customer service distinguished them from other wedding photographers. Clewell Photography responded promptly to my phone calls and emails and readily answered all my questions. After scrolling through wedding album after wedding album, we were completely mesmerized by Kris & Jess's talent. If you're looking for wedding photographers, look no further!
If you read nothing else, read this: of all the major expenses of our wedding, the Clewells were the only that really exceeded our expectations.Our meal was delicious, our music was fun, our planners were great, and everything was beautiful. But the Clewells really blew us away. Their photos are amazing, but nearly as important is how great they are to work with. Remember this - they're immersed in your Big Day for HOURS. If you can't work with your photographer, you'll be miserable. Kris and Jes are great! We talked and laughed like we'd known each other for years. Of course, personalities are different, and this may not be the same for you.So, the photos. Study after study show how imperfect human memory is. You wedding photos are the best anchor you have back to what was happening that day. You'll have them forever. Kris and Jes will make sure your memories look amazing.
Kris and his wife Jes did a great job of making my husband and I comfortable during both our engagement shoot and especially on our wedding day. We have received many compliments on our pictures and we couldn't be happier with how things went. They were very professional and great about getting back to me with any questions or concerns. We had an extremely large wedding party and they were very patient and direct with where people needed to be and when. I would highly recommend them - they were a blast to work with!
