Hey there! I'm Clarissa. I'm the lead photographer and owner of Golden Hour Photo Co. My team and I focus on preserving moments that are authentic and timeless. Our goal is to help you feel like "you" and truly present on your wedding day.
Working with Us
Our editing style can be described as timeless; lots of light, golden and neutral tones. My team and I are careful to make sure all skin tones and colours are reflective of real life. Our shooting style is primarily documentary focused. This means that we capture your wedding day as it unfolds naturally. You can expect the candid, the unrestrained, and the honest moments to be included in your gallery. Equally, the choreographed moments and the arranged portraits are keystones and we make sure these are quick and easy for everyone!
Wedding coverage ranges from 6 to 10 hours so that the right bundle can be selected for all of our couples. Other features available include the following, and more:
The best way to see if we'd be a match is to chat with me so we can discuss your vision for your wedding day. I can't wait to meet you!

The absolute best!
Could not recommend Clarissa from Golden hour photography more! She captured our day with such ease and professionalism. Not only were her photos perfect, but she was so helpful on the day of coordinating family and friends that it felt like a breeze for me. I will definitely be recommending Clarissa.Sent on 01/09/2020

Amazing candid photos
Clarissa was so helpful and managed to get me and my partner to ease up and get us having fun with each other. She got photos of us that showcase the fun and love we have for each other. I have already booked another shoot with Clarissa and can’t wait to continue using her to capture memories in the future!Sent on 13/12/2019

Couldn't be happier!
Clarissa was the most pleasant person to work with! She was the photographer for our wedding and we could not be happier with her work. We had a vision going into the wedding and she absolutely nailed it - even going beyond our expectations. We just got the photos and will be looking at them for the foreseeable future. She captured every detail beautifully! She's very prompt at responding and has an eye for details. Could not recommend her enough!Sent on 17/08/2021
Golden Hour Photography's reply:Thank you so much Hesham!! It was so lovely meeting the both of you, and being able to preserve this day for you! Hope to stay in touch as you begin your new chapter together, too. All the best!

Amazing Engagement Photos
oh my goodness! what can I say.... other than AMAZING! Clarissa at Golden Hour Photography took my breath away after I was sent some proofs the day of our engagement photos and then the rest of them just 2 weeks later...I was speechless. I showed her my Pinterest board and she made my Pinterest board dreams come TRUE! These are photos I will have forever to always look back on and show our family and friends and I am so grateful for that experience. It was our first time taking professional photos but she assured me it would go smoothly...She had music, champagne, and allowed us to be ourselves and laugh and have a good time. The time flew even my fiancé said so! She is also hired for my wedding...love love love! THANK YOU!Sent on 29/05/2020
Golden Hour Photography's reply:Thank you so much Emily! I'm so glad you fell in love with your photos. You & your fiancé have a beautiful story and I absolutely loved our engagement session. I can't wait for the big day! I really appreciate your love and this review.

Need a photographer? Look no further!
We are so glad that Clarissa was able to capture our special day. We found her on Wedding Wire and could not have made a better decision! She is very kind, considerate, and made us all feel comfortable during the shoot. Clarissa is very professional: all of her paperwork is organized, she meets deadlines, and is clearly very passionate about her work. We just received the photos and they are stunning! We highly recommend Clarissa and her team at Golden Hour Photography.Sent on 23/04/2021

I'm Clarissa. Inspired by my passion to create art, I founded this business after I graduated from university and discovered my love of preserving moments in time! My favourite part of a wedding day is the moment that you and your partner are alone for the first time, able to take it all in and enjoy the magic of that day!
My personality is warm, friendly, deeply nostalgic, and I aim to create art and photos that are timeless. I capture crisp and golden light, candid and intimate photos, all while helping guide you through the experience.
I want you to feel present on your wedding day. I aim for you to trust that I've got it - I will be everywhere all at once! That way, you don't have to worry about getting your cousin to use their iPhone to capture that adorable moment when your family starts crying, or when Grandpa Joe starts to break it down on the dance floor!
The best way to decide if we'd work well together is to chat with me! We can discuss your vision and hope for your wedding day, and put together a proposal and package that fits your day.
Drop me a note in my email, and I'd love to jump on a call to get to know one another. I can't wait to hear about your plans for your big day!
Best wishes, Clarissa
