Clane Gessel National Geographic

From Homeless to National Geographic

It’s easy to see how Clane gets remarkable images for each couple if you understand what drives him.  Clane discovered photography in 2003, while living out of his car and wandering around the southwest desert of the USA.  He shot images that were featured in Smithsonian, National Geographic and The New York Times, and was quickly commissioned to shoot weddings.  20 years and 500 weddings later, he’s set the gold standard for what wedding images should be.  Having shot on commission in more than 50 countries, his top-tier client list includes billionaires, royalty and celebrities.  His success is not just limited to the wedding industry.  At the age of 33, he achieved the highest honor awarded to any photographer by shooting the cover of National Geographic’s hard copy book “Spectacle”.  His ethereal images have also graced The New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, Vogue, Brides, and are sold in National Geographic Fine Art Galleries worldwide.

The Creative Team

Having become one of the most sought-after photographers in the world, Clane moved to New York and grew a studio of artists to help capture the vision of each couple. The photo and video teams works seamlessly together to provide intoxicating imagery worthy of heirloom status.  Each Studio member is hand-selected for their attention to detail, ensuring every couple get a highly curated album that allows them to relive their day.
Studio members are available to shoot weddings on their own or alongside Clane, delivering the same quality and masterful images we’ve come to be known for.
