HEY! I’M CHARLOTTE
Hey I’m Charlotte! I’m wedding photographer based in Dorset and Hampshire, on the South Coast of England.
Most days you will find me working from my home office in Hampshire, with my puppy, Denzel trying to sit on my lap all day – he has totally got me under the thumb! I have a minor stationary and notebook addiction and I have a reputation for drinking a lot of tea in a day. I’m a total romantic, who loves walks on the beach, I love, love stories and romantic films, flicking through bridal magazines, wedding blogs and looking at bridal gown collections (And now I am engaged, I am not viewed as a crazy girlfriend ha!).
I love to travel and explore, but also have a deep love with my home and being surrounded by friends and family. I have a lifestyle blog called By Charlotte and I do the occasional freelance commercial and portrait photography.
I photographed my first wedding in 2012 and fell in love with this incredible industry. The best part of what I do is I am a storyteller of a wonderfully special day of a couple who are in love. I get to know you, your relationship, your funny moments, what makes you both happy, your lovely stories – so when it comes to photographing your wedding day, it helps me capture you at your absolute best!
Because my clients can look to me like a friend, this helps me capture the most natural moments of your relationship. This is one of the many reasons why I love what I do!
So I totally get the emotional, happy and overwhelming rollercoaster you are on right now!
Being a Bride-To-Be myself, I know exactly how you feel and what you are going through! I’m only a couple of months into it, but fully surrounded by everything WEDDING! I offer a really friendly service, so hopefully you don’t just see me as the photographer, but someone you can turn to if your a bit stuck, concerned about some aspects of the day, looking for advice. I spend a lot of my time, most weekends in fact at weddings and with suppliers, it has meant I have been fortunate enough to go to a lot of weddings!
I am more than happy to help with advice and tips for how to make the most out of your day and make sure it runs as smoothly as possible, or even if you are just looking for recommendations.
So I guess that’s me in a very brief nutshell! And if you’re interested I have a lifestyle blog called By Charlotte which you can check out here: www.bycharlotte.co.uk This showcases more of my personal work and travel photographs and my obsession with the beach! Also a good read if you are a creative and run your own business as I am sharing my journey, tips and tricks along the way.
I have been really fortunate to have my work published in some amazing places such as Love My Dress, The English Wedding Blog, Want That Wedding, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings and in Magazine publications.
I adore my job and appreciate choosing a wedding photographer is a very important task in the wedding planning process. If you planning a romantic, beautiful wedding, filled with little details – Surrounded by family, friends and your loved ones – want to have a great time and have natural moments captured, then I would love to hear from you! I want to keep it simple for you, keep it natural (no cheesy, awkward poses!) I am pretty relaxed and want all the amazing couples I work with to have the best experience! I adore my job and appreciate choosing a wedding photographer is a really important, so I don’t take this for granted!
