    Wonderful Wedding Photography Experience

    My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Michael and his fantastic work. From the very first meeting, it was clear we were working with a true professional. Michael put us completely at ease and was easily able to help us identify what we wanted - even though walking in, we had no clue! On our wedding day, he was able to deftly navigate the chaos and got so many unexpected, beautiful, silly, candid, memorable shots. Aside from the amazing photos, we felt we had made a true friend in the process and are wishing him the very best down in Texas!

    Michael Charles is incredible!!

    Choosing Michael Charles as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! He is such a charismatic, warm, inviting person that we knew from the minute we met him that he was who we wanted to photograph our wedding. From the time we met him, and through our wedding, Michael took the time to get to know us as a couple. He made us both feel so comfortable when the wedding jitters were there on our wedding day. He went above and beyond what you would expect a photographer to do. From helping me put on my wedding veil, to learning the names and personalities of our family members, to knowing the ins and out of our church and wedding venue, Michael Charles was a professional on every level. Additionally, and most importantly, we cannot say enough great things about how our photos came out. His shots are artistic, creative and classic. His attention to detail is unmatched. He never took a photo if anything looked out of place, and went above and beyond to make sure that each shot was right. Michael’s hard work did not stop after the wedding. Within weeks, we received our photos and a draft of our album. We have gotten more compliments on the photos we have in our house and our wedding album! We loved his style and trusted him through every moment of the day on our wedding day! We cannot say enough great things about him!!

Michael not only has a great eye for photography, and capturing some truly original, spontaneous shots, but he's a general all around nice guy as well. I've seen photographers barking orders at the bridal party, setting up posed shot after posed shot. Michael captures everyone having fun at the wedding without intruding on any of the guests.
