About Charlotte

HI!  My name is Charlotte and I love taking pictures.  I was just 5-years-old when I got my first camera and I have always loved taking photos for as long as I can remember. 

I really fell in love with photography when I studied abroad in Perugia, Italy while I was at UNCA.  From then on I always seemed to find myself with a camera in my hand and I haven't looked back since.  I began working as a videographer & photographer full time after I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville at Durham Public Schools.  There I really honed my skills behind the camera. In 2012 I began working full-time at Meredith College as a videographer and multimedia designer.   

In 2007 after getting request after request from friends and strangers alike to take photos for them I officially began Charlotte Claypoole Photography.  I have absolutely loved being able to capture special moments in so many family's lives.  I have been so privileged to be there to photograph weddings, newborns and just capture special family portraits.  

When I'm not running around with a camera in my hand  I am spending time with my family, my husband Chase, daughter Stella, and our dog Sawyer.
