I'm Charli; a Documentary Style Wedding Photographer and Film Maker, based in Yorkshire, but travelling all over the UK. I have been a Yorkshire Wedding Photographer for a few years now I genuinely love what I do. I aim to capture Couples and their Families and Friends in a relaxed, unobtrusive way. I strive to show the real emotion and happiness of the day. <3
Have a read of the info below to find out a little bit more About Me and what makes me tick! .. and also about My Approach to Weddings and a few FAQs.
I'm generally easy-going and super friendly, and love to make good relationships with couples - so please get in touch so we can get our journey started!
“We had Charli as photographer at our wedding in August and felt obliged to write a review as she did a fantastic job on the day and the photos we’ve had so far have been fantastic. We can’t wait to see the rest of them! She knew exactly what she wanted to achieve with the photos after scouting the venue out earlier that morning and made it really easy for us on the day, helping everything run smoothly and being efficient in getting photos done so we could also spend time enjoying the day. The photos didn’t seem like a chore which can sometimes be the case at weddings and that is solely down to Charli. Other than the official pictures that we knew of, Charlie blended in to proceedings and was able to take some amazing candid shots of everyone enjoying their day without people realising they were having their photo taken. That’s a massive compliment to Charli! Thanks so much for contributing massively to such a perfect day.” Andy
Weddings are a huge passion of mine and I really do give my all on your wedding day - saying that, my style is natural and unobtrusive, and you will be able to enjoy your day without me pulling you away from your friends and family. I will be milling around in the background for a lot of the day, capturing the moments as they happen, in the most candid, emotive and feel-good ways as possible.
This being said, there is always room for family shots, and I love to do Couple Shots too - this is a great time for you to get away and have half an hour together amidst all the chaos, whilst I take a few photos. This is never stuffy or formal, and I will make it relaxed and fun - we will also only do things that you are comfortable with, and we only have to take as much time as you want - so you can get back to your guests and your celebrations as quickly as possible!
“Charli was amazing from the minute she arrived, she was very friendly and very easy to talk to, So much so that my guests thought that I knew her before hand. Myself and my lady are very pleased with the pictures we have seen so far and can’t wait to see the rest.
We would definitely recommend Charli and hope to have another big event just so we can book her again!” Emma, Manchester
A Little About Me
I have an unhealthy obsession with Dr Martens and am nearly always wearing leggings. My hair is very rarely the same colour from month to month. I love football, boxing, art, origami, vintage cameras, independent films, board games, lego and big baggy jumpers. In no particular order: the three coolest animals are Sloths, Llamas and Octopuses. I love my friends and Gin and Orange is the best <3
Music wise - I love a huge range of songs and genres, but Metal & Rock are where my love for music began. I have a soft spot for lots of different types of music though.
I love longs walks in the countryside and my big daft German Shepherd Loco, is my noisy sidekick. I have two cats called Kraken (Yes - after the Rum - he had a brother called Jager too, sadly he's not with us anymore) and Mushroom (Who is more like a Mushroom Cloud than a Button Mushroom).
I did a Degree in 3D Design at MMU in Manchester and worked folding paper for Tigerprint (M&S) for a while, but left to run my own business taking photos! I LOVE to draw and still sell the odd commission on Art by Charli.
Anything else just ask - I'm a pretty open book, <3 Peace. x
