We feel the most important element in wedding photography is capturing the right moments and connection between people. The casual glance, the gentle touch, the laughter, the tears, and the knowing smile. It's the big moments that people think of, as well as the small, private moments and connection between the most important people in your life. Charles doesn't believe in posing these moments. He wants them to be real! He observes and anticipates and his instincts and experience guides him. It's important that these moments are authentic. They become more meaningful as years go by. Along with these candid moments, every couple deserve beautiful, romantic portraits of themselves as well as formal portraits with their family and fun and lovely portraits with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. He poses these portraits and work with clients to get the best expressions from everyone. Please view through this collection of pictures taken from recent blog posts of weddings Charles has photographed over the past few years. Most of pictures are from all over the San Francisco and San Jose Bay area and throughout Northern California and the Monterey and Carmel coast. We've also included some pictures from destinations weddings in Carbo San San Lucas, Las Vegas, and Yosemite National Park.
