Meet the Owner
Whitten Cluff, Owner and Primary Photographer, is located in Central Virginia. She enjoys being able to cherish moments and use photography as a way to help others be able to hold their memories close. Whitten founded Swish & Click photography on the notion that everyone should be able to have this form of art accessible.
Whitten’s favorite form of photography is capturing candid moments during a wedding or portrait session. She also loves to make her clients laugh and feel comfortable!
When she isn’t doing photography, Whitten can be found playing with her dogs, drinking wine, reading a book, or celebrating one of her many nerd-doms (Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, or Outlander anyone??). She also loves to travel and perfectly capture architecture and nature.
Assistant Photographer – Sally Deaton
Sally Deaton, assistant photographer, is an avid horseback rider and published author. Sally joined the Swish & Click Photography team in early 2020, after having her own wedding captured by Whitten! She enjoys being able to capture the moments that might be missed by a primary photographer – like a child laughing while the couple is celebrating their first dance, or the teary-eyed parents during the couple’s ring-exchange.
Sally’s favorite part about weddings is helping couples have fun, let loose, and seeing the close-knit families that surround them.
When not behind the lens, Sally can be found spending time fishing with her husband, doing wine tastings at local wineries (with Whitten, of course), or hanging out with her friends and family. She also loves Harry Potter, but her favorite books and movies are the Lord of the Rings series. One day, she’d love to travel to New Zealand and visit the Shire.
