“Chase light & happy moments..”

HI THERE, I'M

CHARLIE...

 

An optimistic wedding and portrait photographer from Derbyshire. I capture fragments of life and happiness, genuine smiles and laughter with a little bit of adventure thrown in too. More importantly ... I absolutely LOVE weddings!

Hello new friends! If you're here, I'm guessing you're wanting to get to know a little more about crazy old me!

So where do I start...

 I'm a full blown northerner who loves the hills and finding beauty in simplicity.  I generally laugh at my own jokes, and I feel pretty awkward describing myself. It doesn’t take much to make me happy. A good bottle of Gin or a mug of Yorkshire Tea is the best way to my heart. I love a little adventure in the hills or to another country soaking up the culture. I'm a sucker for sunrises and sunsets. When I am not behind my camera pouring my heart into my work, you will find me in one of two places: Getting lost in the hills of the Peak District with my mischievous pooch Roxy and my handsome fiancé Gaz , or cuddled up on the  sofa with a bucket of tea, either binge watching Game Of Thrones or planning my next adventure.  

My first camera was given to me by my parents on a family holiday in Norfolk when I was 6. The hope was that it would keep me entertained enough to keep me out of trouble. Oh how wrong my parents were.  Little did they realise that, that camera sparked an ever growing love. Being a little adventurer, photography allowed me to explore the world around me capturing the raw, emotional moments of everyday life that often get overlooked.

Someone once said to me that you should never treat your clients like your friends and it’s something I have never agreed with or been able to stick with. I break this rule every single day with every single client. You’re not just a client to me, you’re a new friend adding to the chapters in my book of life.

My approach allows me to get to know the little things that make you tick which is what makes your photographs so unique. It’s not about the clothes you wear or what colour hair you have. It’s who you are and the stories you have that makes a good photograph. The key is you.
