Welcome to the home of Claire Meldrum Photography. I have been described by my fabulous clients as being "calm, easy going, professional, friendly and someone who can put people at ease straightaway."
If you are looking for a relaxed photographer to attend your wedding, photograph your family outdoors or come along and provide party photography in Staffordshire or Derbyshire then I'm your woman!
I describe myself as being a relaxed photographer. Why? Well, because I provide a variety of photography styles for you with a cheeky grin and an easy disposition.
I get the photographs you want without being that annoying shouty person!
I'll be honest. My clients are the people who LOVE images, who want GORGEOUS pictures of their family or their wedding day. They are the first ones to sit on some steps regardless of a bit of dirt and hug their kids, the first to ditch their wedding shoes, cravats and suit jackets and hit the danclefloor.
They are my kinda people!
Being an outdoor photographer is brilliant.
Kids are more themselves, adults seem a bit less stressed. The result is that we can just go for it and not be too contrived.
I try to document you how you are in a relaxed carefree way.
I LOVE a good wedding! Candid portraits make my heart happy (those are the ones where you don't see my sneaky photographic ninja type moves) but I realise that posed group portraits are the memories of the future, the photos we look back at in years to come.
With a small amount of posed group portraits we can keep the day relaxed and enjoyable for everyone.
Afterwards I then take the time to capture some gorgeous images of you as newlyweds. Before working the room and taking images of smaller family groups, speeches and the details.

We all have our strengths and photography is mine. I love just getting on in there and doing my thing, balancing lots of candid images with posed shots such as the "one of the Grandchildren" above.
40th, 50th, 60th, 70th & 80th birthday celebrations are all something I cover.
From afternoon tea parties to evening celebrations.
Event photography is tricky! Paying someone to capture your event is a great investment. Pay a set fee and receive a full gallery of images and share amongst family and friends.
