Claire Diana Photography specializes in seniors, boudoir, weddings & more IN ATHENS & Atlanta, GA

Hi!  I'm Claire.

I’ve been a full-time photographer for 8+ years, have photographed over 200 weddings, have opened 3 studios, have traveled across the world to capture people’s memories, have mentored other creatives as they’ve launched and grown their own businesses, and have never taken this crazy journey for granted.

Now you can find me nestled in Athens, GA with my rescue pup Ladybug, loving and serving my clients when I’m not salsa dancing, playing pickleball, or dreaming up new endeavors.

I didn’t grow up knowing I wanted to be a photographer. In fact, I don’t really like cameras or technology. But what I do love is connecting with people. Serving them, loving them, showing them their worth. And when God introduced me to photography as a way to do these things, I was sold! My goal is to impact people in a way that lasts, in their confidence and in their memories. To give them joyful experiences that expose the love in their lives, inside of themselves and in their relationships with others. 

On any given day, you may find me photographing a high school senior, an engaged couple, a person with their beloved pet, you name it. But across the board, my images tend to be full of bright colors, genuine emotions, and lots of JOY.

The Cottage

Welcome to my studio in Athens, Georgia! This is where I meet with clients to plan out their sessions, where I hold my Reveals and make lots of people cry (good tears!), and where I pamper my boudoir clients. 

It’s a cute little cottage built in the year 1900. It’s full of natural light, plaster walls, 12 foot ceilings, and a charming pecan grove & rope swing in the back.
