My name is Dan Rice and I am the CEO / Founder of Clearlight Studios. I photographed my first wedding 15 years ago. Growing up within a family full of artists I was always inspired. Over the last 15 years of business I have been photographing weddings on top of the everyday tasks of running my business. Editing, album design, marketing, accounting and client relations.


Moving forward with the high demand of my services I felt the motivation to add other talented individuals into a studio that reflects my style and professionalism. Thus, Clearlight Studios was created. Each photographer within the Clearlight Studios umbrella has been carefully chosen and trained to bring exceptional quality and personality. No beginners here - each photographer has had at least 10 years of professional experience and have worked together for many years.


Our style is often described by clients as natural, crisp, fun, creative with a timeless feel. You can expect an exquisite mix of candids of you and all of your guests, as well as stylized artistic shots, formals (photographed quickly and professionally), and many details. Our goal is for you to look at your images 50 years down the road and feel they are still amazing, free of gimmicks.


It is very important for us to show you we are technically savvy, creative, and personable. We are happy to offer an engagement session at our risk. If you love us, then you hire us. If for some reason you don't love the results, there is no cost to you. It is a perfect way for us to prove our quality of work.


Before your wedding day arrives, we will have completed all of our preparations. We will discuss the time-line together to make sure the photography goes smoothly. There are so many moments to know of and anticipate. Our photographers are energetic, tactful and professional. We strive to capture each moment, details, and guests as well as our stylized shots to help preserve the memories of the day.


My own personal role has completely changed over the years, and my entire focus today is to make sure that from beginning to end, you are more than happy. I personally handle all of the customer support, editing and album design. From the planning stages to your final products, I want to make sure you are receiving my personal high-end standards. Standards that keep raising with the evolution of styles and equipment.


I look forward to hearing more about your upcoming wedding soon.
