  • I'll just start by saying that what we got blew us away, even having checked out and seen Barclay's work before. You'll understand when you get your photos back. As far as working with him in the moment he was attentive to our timeline and was present for all the moments we agreed were important to us ahead of time. It was easy to be smiling around his upbeat personality. One of his greatest skills was helping everyone into shots that brought their personalities out. Mindful of our time he rolled with any requests we had without being obsequious or impolite. The photos we received were brilliant!

  • I first heard of Barclay when one of my best friends arranged for Barclay to shoot their wedding in Duluth, 2017. I briefly perused his online portfolio and Instagram and marveled at his talent and attention to detail. I’ve come to appreciate his relaxed sense of humor intended to alleviate stress and encourage genuine smiles and laughter - booking him for our wedding immediately after securing a venue was an absolute no-brainer. I knew we would work well together and was confident in his ability to capture precious moments on our wedding day. We got married Sept of 2019 and all I can say is that working with Barclay (again) was amazing. He continued to monitor the likelihood of thunderstorms and routinely provided updates and simple alternatives for me to choose from (while relaying all changes with my event coordinator). Right before our first look, another wedding party crashed our venue and Barclay sprinted up to the bridal suite to check on me and immediately looked for an o... Read more

  • Barclay is amazingly talented and incredibly fun to work with! He's great at making you feel comfortable and making you laugh! He has such a creative mind and sees incredible potential in the environment to get the most beautiful photos. He did our engagement and wedding photos. We loved having him as our photographer!

  • Couldn't have asked for a better experience with a photographer or a better experience! He was creative, warm, funny, and made our day even more special than we could have ever imagined!

  • One of the best and easiest choices we ever made given the fact that wedding photography was one of, if not the most, important elements of our day. Barclay has a unique ability to translate ideas into imagery and moments into memories – all while engaging you as both a professional and a friend. The way in which he conducts his craft lets you know that he has your best interests in mind at all times – and he’s got an exceptional sense of humor to help bring on the smiles and laughter when the moment calls for it. We originally picked Barclay for the exceptional photos that we had seen on his website – and based on our experience throughout our wedding – we’re confident in recommending him for yours as well.

  • Barclay was amazing to work with. We had walked through the day in great detail and on the day of, he was so on top of things I didn't have to worry about anything! He made sure people were where they needed to be, he made children giggle, he read our family perfectly and got them laughing. He was so excited about our wedding and it was infectious. We haven't gotten photos back but I am not worried. I would recommend Barclay to anyone!

  • Photography was our number one, have to get it right vendor. That being said - we are super happy we went with Barclay! First of all, he is a fun person to be around. He made us feel really comfortable in front of a camera. Second, his photographs are simply amazing! There are so many great shots to choose from we are seriously struggling to pick them. I'm starting to feel like a narcissist putting up so many photos of us on our walls.... but they are so beautiful I can't resist!

  • If you are looking for a talented, artistic, personable, hard-working, and professional photographer, you must contact Barclay! We were referred to Barclay from a friend and I am so grateful! From our first meeting via a 2 hour Skype session (we were planning our MN wedding from our home in Dallas) we were convinced that he was the photographer for us! His enthusiasm and obvious love for his craft was contagious. He was genuinely excited to work with us which was awesome. He answered all of our questions and was always extremely detailed and patient. He even recommended a videographer for us who we used solely based upon his recommendation. That is how much faith we placed in him! Barclay went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable before the big day and during it! I have a fairly large family and we had 7 flower girls and Barclay took many family photos that I wanted taken with ease! He kept things moving and used every second of his time wisely! I was so impressed with how well... Read more

  • We were thrilled with the photos that Barclay took for us on our wedding day! So much color and fun, unique shots - it made it so hard to chose a favorite. We are so thankful that he was able to capture so much and help us re-live our wedding through these images! If I had the chance to do it over again, I would pick Barclay as my wedding photographer, hands down.

  • Having just recently walked down the aisle, I can assure all "couples to be" of one thing: there is so much you don't know yet. After spending almost 12 months planning our perfect wedding, it was incredible how many timing and logistical things we had never thought through on our day of. One thing we walked away from our wedding thankful for was hiring someone like Barclay who has both the experience and vision to make a wedding look great and feel easy. I'm writing this review somewhat prematurely as we've yet to see our final photos, but if you've looked at his portfolio you'll know why we aren't concerned at all. What those photos won't convey though is the job Barclay does to get them. Throughout the day I watched him: - Sweat. Lots. His energy level was at 100% from 10am-10pm. - Lay down in an intersection, confront security guards, make kids laugh and pin on a boutonnière...all to get that perfect photo. - Anticipate every photo op (seriously, its like a 6th sense).

  • My opinion is that Barclay doesn't charge enough for his service. My wedding was in MN while my wife and I live in TX. This is a huge hassle in most cases, but Barclay didn't bat an eye and was extremely helpful the entire time. It's worth mentioning that Barclay's professionalism was frustrating for me at first, because I'd MUCH rather be informal and flippant then stuffy and business-like. I'm a happy guy, and I want to make jokes and chat. Barclay was an awesome person in this respect, because he was very professional and polite until he realized who he was dealing with. What I'm saying is that Barclay's flexibility makes him an excellent person to work with. This same flexibility comes out in his pictures. Given a certain situation or with certain uncontrollable elements, it takes Barclay less than a minute to asses, position, and take a picture. Some of our pictures ALONE would be worth hundreds of dollars and take tons of preparation and waiting. He is truly gifted in t... Read more

  • Barclay has been my favorite photographer for years. I first met him when he shot all of my sister's wedding photos and he now does all of their family and some business photos. He was the one for sure thing that I had from day one of my wedding planning that I knew I wanted to be part of my wedding. I refused to have anyone else. His work is so beautiful and always turns out amazing. He meets with you and discusses what kind of photos you want and makes sure he knows how you want the photos to turn out. I suggest him to anyone and everyone that wants high quality, beautiful photos. My photos turned out gorgeous! People can't stop complimenting about them.

  • Of all of my wonderful vendors, I am most pleased about my choice in photographer, Barclay Horner. From the moment we met at our initial coffee shop consultation, I had good vibes about him. I have family + friends telling me how much they enjoyed his friendly and calming presence throughout the ceremony and reception. He was so receptive to the overall vibe and photography style I was looking for and helped keep the day running and everything on point. He was patient with the craziness of the bridal party to the extra requests from Grandma. I cannot thank him and recommend him more to anyone looking for stellar photography. P.S. The pics on his blog are amazing!

  • Barclay was great in every respect. In regard to his responsiveness, my sister is on a 6 month wait for hers so 2 months is impressive. And yes, I was just recommending him to a friend tonight. That negative review sounds like a complainer to me, and I can't imagine the photos being bad. I mean seriously, look at his website!
