As soon as we met Charli we knew she understood us. An incredible documentary wedding photographer, she was discreet and made us both feel so comfortable. She also answered us immediately with every query we had and I now think of her as a friend – she is so lovely! When we received our photographs, we beamed from ear to ear at every photo. They have completely wowed us and Charli was one of our best decisions. We also chose Charli because not only is her documentary style photography completely our style, but the fact she shoots in film and digital was just such a beautiful touch and has given us such a variety of photos. We are over the moon with them.
Charli was the photographer at our friends Carmel and James’ wedding, and the photos were stunning. As soon as we got engaged there was no doubt that we would ask Charli to capture our wedding too – we made sure she was available before we confirmed the date and booked the venue! Charli was fantastic on the day, the portrait sessions gave us some magical newly-wed time alone, and she was unobtrusive in capturing the whole day in her storytelling style. In particular, Charli’s suggestion of doing a “first look” session was fantastic, it meant that the first time we saw each other on our wedding day was in private, and Charli captured the moment.
I had seen Charli’s amazing photography skills from when she captured two of my friend’s weddings previously, and I straight away said (even though I wasn’t then engaged!), that she would be the photographer at our wedding. As soon as we had our date booked, Charli was the first person we booked! On the day, Charli was basically more like a friend at the wedding; blending into the background but with the odd clicks to capture the humour, love and the character of our most amazing day!
Charli was so helpful in the run up. We were rather disorganised but whenever we spoke to her she made us feel calm and confident that everything would go great. It felt more like she was a friend at the wedding than just a photographer! She gave us lots of tips and helped us plan the day so that we had a few moments alone (and with our guinea pigs) to get some great shots. Charli was extremely organised and had a good balance of slotting into the background when required but also ushering family into place when needed! She made us laugh lots and feel completely relaxed – it was great to have her with us and I have recommended her to my friends!
