About Charles

Essex Wedding Photographer

I have been taking photos since I was given my first camera as a small boy, and I have had a camera in my hand most of the time ever since! I really enjoy taking photos at weddings and I am always delighted when couples love the results of my efforts. However, I am not just a wedding photographer…

I also am a qualified teacher with a PhD in Drama and have been employed by schools for many years to photographic records of their pupils’ cultural, sporting and social activities. This has included photographing children of all ages, from 3 to 18, so my experience in this field is second to none.

As a professional photographer, I have been lucky to have had the opportunity to attend a multitude of national and international events. I have particularly enjoyed photographing members of the Royal Family at major celebrations, including the Royal Pageant, two Royal Weddings and the 2014 visit to Felsted by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, for which I had exclusive access. In 2015 I was honoured to be awarded an Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society, the oldest and most prestigious photographic organisation in the world.

I am an avid traveller and have been fortunate to be able to visit a large number of countries to indulge my personal passion for wildlife photography.

Finally, you might be surprised to know that I am also a professional magician and Full Member of The Magic Circle, with several television appearances to my name!

Charles provides a service that you can absolutely depend upon, which is just wonderful with so much else to organise and manage.
