I specialize in photojournalistic Wedding Photography, casual and traditional family portraits, and stylistic individual portraits.
I take a storytelling approach to wedding photography. The concept is simple. Just be yourself. Celebrate, laugh, cry - I'll capture it. The results are profound. Your photos will convey the mood and expressions of your unique moments. I look for genuine and spontaneous connections between people and find instances which may not be obvious, but taken as a whole, compliments the entire story.
A wedding photographer only has a split second to capture the essence of a fleeting telling moment, the glimmer of a look, the spark or glow of light at an angle. An effective photographer must have the skill, experience, passion and eye to rise to that demand.
Rest assured, you can depend on me to capture the soul and spirit of your big day, and relay your stories powerfully and elegantly.
Contact me to reserve your wedding date or portrait session or make an appointment to meet with me personally.

We loved the pictures that Charles took for our wedding! We found Charles through Yelp and were so impressed by his portfolio on his website. Charles spends time with each of his clients to get to know them and their preferences. He has an extraordinary talent for catching moments. His photo-journalistic approach allowed him to capture some expressions that we never knew we had. We are so happy we selected him because of his organization, professionalism, and the fantastic pictures he took for us.

We had the pleasure to have Charles as our photographer on the most important day of our lives. Charles was the best we could have chosen! He arrived on a timely manner and was professional while adding endless laughter to our day. In the consults prior to the event date, we explained to Charles our family are not posers and our parents don't ever smile in pictures. He definitely listened and candidly captured each one of them smiling and expressing emotions no words can explain. Of course we had our magazine like shots as well so you have the best of both worlds (type of photography). Both Charles and his assistant Amanda were polite, personable, warm, funny, quick and efficient. We felt comfortable with them and had lots of fun! It's extremely important to trust your photographer since this type of day can not pause or replay. He captured moments I had no idea he was around to capture and thanks to him I will forever have those photos to cherish. We are absolutely in L.O.V.E with our Wedding Album and I would highly highly recommend Charles to trust with capturing your special moments at any special occasion. We are honored to have chosen Charles as our photographer!

Charles of Charles Le Photography was the photographer for my wedding on August 6, 2011 and my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding on September 1, 2013. We plan to use Charles for all our special occasions from here on! In addition to creating wonderful results, Charles is extremely easy to work with and we now consider him to be one of our dear friends.
Charles has a gift for capturing special moments, particularly with his candid shots and his eye for details. My own wedding – a garden wedding in our backyard, with our 8 grown children and 2 grandbabies in our wedding party – was captured in beautiful detail. One of the shots from the evening of our wedding is now displayed over our mantel in our formal living room, and many family photos captured the day before the wedding now decorate a two-story wall in our home (our family is quite large!). We love Charles’ artistry and his playfulness. We also appreciate how easy Charles was to work with during our special day.
Charles’ work for my daughter and son-in-law’s (Melissa and Justin’s) wedding included gorgeous “engagement” photos in outdoor settings that perfectly suit Melissa and Justin. They are gorgeous photographs that we will treasure. The wedding photographs are also amazing. Melissa and Justin had a “wedding weekend” that involved a family camp, with a campfire, games and other festivities prior to the wedding itself – at a location in the redwoods. Charles captured the excitement and playfulness of this special weekend with his use of candid and traditional shots of the day and weekend. The wedding was both rustic and elegant – and Charles’ artistry helps us to preserve these beautiful memories. So many of his shots will be perfect to enlarge on canvases - they are beautiful works of art.
I highly recommend Charles to anyone in need of a professional photographer – and in particular for anyone planning a wedding and looking for a true artist to capture the special moments.

I worked with Charles Le and his crew at the Palm Event Center in Pleasanton this summer. It was such a pleasure because they were pleasant, FUN, and very PROFESSIONAL. At most weddings, photographers are rarely seen at the conclusion of a reception and missing out on priceless photo opportunites, but Charles and crew were there working until the very end. Now, that's commitment and passion! Their photos are simply amazing and the Blog is very impressively interesting. Make sure you check it out!
Always Love working with Charles Le Photography!!
