"From the moment we met Charlie for our engagement shoot we just loved him! He's so much fun to be around and just put us at ease. The photos were simply beautiful. On our wedding day it was like just having an old friend there. Everyone presumed we'd known him for years! The photos were amazing, as we knew they would be, but with Charlie you don't just get a photographer!! He also sang an amazing impromptu rendition of U2's One Love with our wedding singer, which sounded like they'd practiced for months inspite of having only just met! Then at 11 when the venue cut the DJ's power mid song he stepped in and led everyone in an a Capella version or Don't Look Back in Anger. Hearing everyone sing their hearts out by candlelight was a pretty epic end to what initially felt like a crisis!! Oh, and then after a mix up with taxis left us stranded he gave us a lift back to our hotel! You basically couldn't ask for any more from your wedding photographer! Get in touch with him, I promise you won't regret it!!"

Look no further you've found the perfect photographer!

Choosing Charlie for our wedding photography was such an easy decision. Seeing the story he tells through his photographs made him a perfect fit for the type of relaxed and intimate wedding day we were hoping for. He immediately makes you feel at ease in front of the lens with his humour and approachable manner. A natural at capturing those intimate moments that happen when you think no one else is looking but that you're so pleased are encapsulated in print forever to look back on. We couldn't recommend Charlie enough to anyone looking to have a professional and passionate photographer be part of their special day.

Liam and Vicky Thomas Wedding in Ireland

Liam Thomas

April 2017

We met Charlie at one of our family’s weddings the year before ours. We were so impressed by his enthusiasm and personality that we booked him before we even had a venue! Having settled on Ireland as a location Charlie was on board from the start and was in constant contact from the beginning. On the run up to the wedding we had a little taste of the work he was going to do with us when we went for a lovely evening at Frensham Ponds for a pre shoot. Having never had a professional photo shoot we had no idea of what to expect, Charlie was brilliant in making us feel welcome and was able to guide us on what to do and how to look. Charlie really went the extra mile on the weekend of our wedding; he arrived the day before and could not contain his excitement at the location. He spent best part of a day taking shots and getting to know the local area, which proved vital on the day of the wedding. The evening before our wedding Charlie again went the extra mile and was with us for dinner and came with us after to our favorite local pub. It was more like having a family friend with us than a photographer, he was engaging with everyone and only added to the atmosphere. The day of the wedding was up in the air due to the classic Irish weather, we ended up going ahead and using the beach. Charlie had spent the morning with the Bride and Bridesmaids capturing in great detail every aspect of the preparation then came across to the windswept beach. Throughout the day and into the evening Charlie didn’t only take the staged shots that we wanted, he captured intimate shots that most people would have missed. We could carry on typing about Charlie for pages however the real proof is in the end result, the photos were beyond amazing. Charlie constantly goes above and beyond what he needed to do and as a bonus is a just a brilliant guy! He is more than just a photographer and we can’t recommend him enough!

Words can't describe what an incredible photographer Charlie is. The moments he captured of our wedding are priceless and each and every one of our guests commented on how wonderful the photos were. As well as an incredible photographer, Charlie is also a down to earth, nice guy who has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He went the extra mile for us, arranging last minute things on the day and after the day. He was always on hand and even helped by mucking in on last minute decorative touches on the day. We would highly recommend Charlie - he is simply fantastic.

Thank you for capturing the day perfectly!

Wow where do I start! Charlie captured our day so perfectly! We couldn't be happier with the photos they are so amazing and tell the story of our wedding from start to finish! All of our family and friends were wowed by his photos we can't thank him enough!!! Not only are the photos amazing Charlie was awesome on the day and made us feel so comfortable! It felt like we have know him for years and we can't wait to meet up and have a drink again soon! Thanks Charlie you legend!! Xxx

Alex & Emma's September Wedding

Sue Warwicker

November 2016

We met Charlie in Chamonix in 2014 when he came and photographed our chalet for our website and were absolutely thrilled with the images. The warmth and enthusiasm he exudes is instant. Having spent the whole day with him and then keeping in contact over the next couple of years, when our son announced his engagement Charlie really was the only person we thought of contacting to capture the day. What a day it was! Pouring rain for what should have been an outdoor service did not dampen spirits and there are some amazing shots in the rain with umbrellas. Charlie really is one of the nicest people we've ever met. His enthusiasm for people and capturing natural images is incredible. He really has re produced Alex and Emma's day from beginning to end, capturing the smallest and biggest moments as well as the whole ambience. They are absolutely delighted with their photographs and in their words "it was the best wedding present we could have been given!". We honestly wouldn't hesitate to recommend Charlie to photograph your special day or any big event. You will not be disappointed.

Charlie is an absolutely incredible wedding photographer - not only did he get some great family portrait photos on our big day, but he got some gorgeous natural shots too. Charlie was with us all day but he was so discrete we did not even notice he was there taking snaps which was perfect! We have had so many compliments about Charlie and how lovely he was, and of course how wonderful his photography is. We have already had friends asking to contact him for their upcoming weddings. Thank you Charlie for being so brilliant - best decision to choose you as our wedding photographer!

I can't put into words how amazing Charlie is. He becomes like one of the family on your special day, unobtrusive, thoughtful and simply delightful. He sees the magic and beauty in all moments and he manages to bring them to life even more through his photos, preserving and capturing your most incredible moments for forever more. When you look back at his photos, they take you straight back to the moment, your emotions flood back and you get to relive them through his work. To say we are glad to of met and worked with you Charlie is an absolute understatement. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us to cherish and remember our special day in this vivid way!

Charlie you legend!

September 2016

From the very first conversation I had with Charlie I knew that I need look no further. He instantly put me at ease and it was immediately clear that we were on the same page. His seemingly boundless energy and enthusiasm was only bettered by his professionalism and the quality of his photos. On the day he made us all feel so relaxed. The guests loved him and that really shows in the quality of the photos that he took. I could not recommend him highly enough. Thank you for all your hard work Charlie, Love Fay and Steve

Fantastic day, Fantastic photographer :) !

Candra and Aaron Nowacki

July 2016

It can be challenging to find a photographer that you feel gets you as a couple and that you feel will be able to capture your day that you would like..From the very first chat with Charlie we felt instantly at ease, so friendly,warm and interested in you as a couple. Charlie instantly got what it was that we wanted from our wedding pics - a relaxed, casual look with plenty of everyone enjoying themselves and the day. At first I was reluctant to have too many "posey" couple shots - Charlie respected this but I'm so glad he encouraged us to have a few moments out of the day to have some as this is such a special day about the two of you and also after receiving our photos WOW am I glad we did! Charlie makes everyone feel at ease and our guests loved him and found it hilarious that he suggested a few "selfies!" He knows how to get the best out of everyone and really captures the emotions. When we got our pics back I couldn't believe there was only him on the day! He must have been running everywhere to capture as much as he did! Charlie gave us a pre-wedding photo engagement shoot as part of our package and I would thoroughly recommend this as it gives you a chance to work together and feel more relaxed on the day-and get some gorgeous pics! We are over the moon of our pics from the wedding day - the quality is fantastic and the online gallery is so easy for guests to look at and order from. I would 100% recommend Charlie for your photographer you won't be disappointed! We even got a private viewing and slide show viewing together at the studio which was really special. Thank you Charlie, Candra and Aaron

nothing we can put into words will ever do any of your photos the justice

Alessandro and Gabriella

July 2016

Charlie, nothing we can put into words will ever do any of your photos the justice you or they deserve but you really were the icing on the top of our wedding cake! Not only did you make the day so special and exciting, you made the preparations and planning fun and easy. You weren’t just our photographer, it felt as though you were our guest on the day, part of the family – and without you it wouldn’t have been the same. You captured every single moment of the best day of our lives and in each of those photos the emotions and feelings are clear. I have never felt comfortable having my photo taken, but having a new friend at the other side of the lens made all the difference. We can’t stop looking at the photos and there isn’t one that doesn’t make us smile. I genuinely don’t know how you did it – but you did, and we cannot thank you enough.

Charlie was really enthusiastic and spent a lot of time and effort on our photos. He was really friendly and showed a lot of interest in us as a couple and our personalities so he could reflect this in the photos he took. We would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Charlie!

Aside from your work and professionalism your enthusiasm like I said in my speech is something else and we are both really happy you were a part of our day

Alessandro and Gabriella

May 2016

Charlie, We’re back tanned and a little bit worried if we’ll ever see the sun again! Firstly can I just say not only were we overjoyed with your pictures , but I wish you could hear some of the comments we have had. Work colleagues and family/friends in Italy who couldn’t make it have commented on the quality of the photographs and wondering what type of photographer we had because they all say the pictures are like being there. I just wanted to send you this picture of you at work you might like to use it in blogs or website. Rob one of our groomsmen snapped it of you. Charlie I know Gabriella has messaged you but I wanted to stress how amazing your work is and we knew it from day 1 when we spoke on skype that we wanted nobody else to photograph our big day. Aside from your work and professionalism your enthusiasm like I said in my speech is something else and we are both really happy you were a part of our day See you soon! Alex

The photos are phenomenal, we got everything we wanted and so much more

Rachel Bell

February 2016

"Wow what an amazing photographer and what a lovely man! Charlie put in so much effort from start to finish, we skyped about 3 times before the wedding so he knew the exact weekend plan and exactly what we wanted from our wedding photos. We had a destination wedding and as soon as Charlie arrived he integrated seamlessly into our wedding party, we were only 35 people and everyone commented how much he just felt like another guest which was lovely. The morning of the wedding was a bit stressful due to a flower crisis and Charlie handled the highly emotional bridal party perfectly, he captured the preparation so wonderfully without us even noticing him there. The photos are phenomenal, we got everything we wanted and so much more and the best bit is we didn't just get sent a few hundred that he chose, we got EVERTYHING (all 984 photos and approx. 2 hours of GoPro footage)!! He genuinely loved seeing us get married and really cared and I feel like we have made a life long friend, can't recommend him enough! :) Once again Charlie thank you so much, we love looking at our photos and getting taken back to our magical day x"

On behalf of me and my new Husband, we would like to say how amazing Charlie is, he had managed to capture not only our day but also our personalities perfectly! We really can’t thank him enough for everything he has done. From day one through to now he has provided the most incredible service...Charlie, you are a genuine pleasure to be around and both Sam and I will be able to look back at your pictures in years to come and remember what a happy day it was. Despite the less than perfect weather, I am so glad we braved the elements as those are my favorite pictures of the day! The style of the photographs are exactly what we wanted, natural, capturing the moments that we missed, overall they are stunning. Thank you Charlie - you're the best! Abbie and Sam xxx Chamonix 2016

Charlie had me so relaxed and at ease that half the time I didn't even realize he was taking the photo's.

Phillipa Kenwright

December 2015

Our amazing day was captured by the most amazing photographer Charlie Davies leaving us with a stunning collection of pictures from the whole weekend so we will never forget the memories and laughs we had making them! We got married in Italy and were lucky enough to have Charlie with us for the whole time, he went to all the venue to ensure he knew the right angles and best light to capture the perfect picture! I'm a reluctant bride and didn't want to really be photographed but Charlie had me so relaxed and at ease that half the time I didn't even realize he was taking the photo's....he also charmed all our guests and ended up being part of the family! I CANNOT recommend Charlie enough.....his talent, dedication and LOVE of weddings leads to the most spectacular memories captured in his photos!

We couldn't have wished for a better person to join us on our wedding day and feel incredibly lucky we found Charlie

Katy & Stu Winter

December 2015

The energy and passion Charlie has for photography is very evident in the quality work he produces. This shines through in his approach to his work and the excitement he had for being part of our wedding. We couldn't have wished for a better person to join us on our wedding day and feel incredibly lucky we found Charlie! He went above and beyond, joining us the night before to meet the wedding party and being with us from first thing on the day to the last drunken dance!! He captured the wedding day perfectly building such strong rapport with all our guests through his friendly and open approach. We think Charlie is excellent and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else, we feel very lucky to now call him a friend and look forward to the next time we can catch up. Katy & Stuart x

Perfect in every way

Anna & Jonas Carlsson

August 2015

If you have decided to have Charlie as your wedding photographer we can only congratulate you. Because, to ask Charlie to be our wedding photographer was probably the best decision we have ever made. We have been extremely happy with every single picture he has taken, from our pre-shoot pictures, to the wedding weekend photos, to the design & layout of our wedding album. The quality of the photos aside, Charlie was also perfect to deal with as a person, and everything was really a smooth ride from the beginning to the end. Also looking at quality / price ratio, Charlie is a bargain, he is a top-of-the-line photographer to the price of 'any other' wedding photographer. We really wanted to capture the faces of our loved ones as they really are, and that is why we chose Charlie to start with. We had looked at his portfolio and were stunned about his ability to capture moments, feelings & expressions in every person. Once we got in contact we talked several times on the phone about what we wanted & how we wanted it to be. Charlie flew over for a pre-shoot where we spent time together trying to feel comfortable kissing in front of a camera, and we could then have a look at those pictures together to also let him know which styles we liked more and which we liked less. For our wedding weekend, Charlie really spent ALL day and night with us, and captured every single moment so well. Aside from taking the most stunning pictures, he prepared us a beautiful album online where all of the pics are captured, as well as a printed amazing photo book that he sent over to Sweden. His photography style and quality is top notch and we have been absolutely amazed about his ability to capture faces & feelings through the lens of his camera. We give our warmest & best recommendations that we could ever give for Charlie, and rate him 100 on a scale of 5. He is simply the BEST BEST BEST photographer you could ever think of. And we really mean it. Enjoy!!!

Absolutely fantastic - thanks so much Charlie, we love them!

From action shots on the mountain to intimate moments during our ceremony, every picture tells a story and the whole album flows beautifully

Emma Burdett

July 2015

We knew we wanted something a bit more adventurous and exciting for our wedding pictures, we were planning an action packed day on the mountain combining skiing and our wedding ceremony, so we needed a photographer who could keep up on the piste as well as creating some beautiful images, and as soon as we saw Charlie’s work we knew he would be the photographer for us! Sure enough, Charlie worked with us in advance to plan the day and make sure we were ready to capture everything we wanted, and on the day he worked tirelessly with great skill and enthusiasm and became a real part of our celebrations. From action shots on the mountain to intimate moments during our ceremony, every picture tells a story and the whole album flows beautifully. We still haven’t narrowed it down to which few we want to print - as we want them all! A big thank you to Charlie for being such a fab part of our day and leaving us with such wonderful pictures to remember it by.

I knew from the first moment that I spoke to Charlie that he was going to be part of my Wedding day. Charlie had a very calming non- intrusive presence on the wedding morning and a infectious enthusiasm that brought both family and friends together for some incredible shots capturing perfectly the magic of our day. Charlie stayed with us all day and well into the night meaning that we now have some very beautiful photographs that will enable us to relive our special day for years to come. Thank You Charlie for being so much a part of our day; your thought, care and friendship were very much felt, valued and will always be remembered. Much Love, Zoe and Gavin Best xx

They brought back so many happy memories and let's face it that's what photos are all about.

Charlie, Where do we start?! The photos are wonderful. We are so so so happy with them. I've looked through them so many times. They brought back so many happy memories and let's face it that's what photos are all about. You captured the weekend wonderfully and were so professional. You've captured some really personal moments yet we never noticed you there. Truly amazing. It was a real pleasure having you there, you just felt like another friend which was great. Hopefully see you soon. Steph and Henry x

His work is fantastic, his approach to his work is professional

Carla Gale

May 2014

Testimonial …. We were given a list of photographers from our wedding planner, and Charlie's work caught our eye. The photos looked fun without being cheesy, professional and personal to each wedding. We met Charlie before the wedding to have a pre wedding photo shoot. This was really useful for both Mike and I to relax in front of the camera, and to feel at ease with Charlie. After the photo shoot and a long chat over tea and coffee we really were happy that Charlie would be perfect for our big day. On the day Charlie was there while we got ready, through to the evening dancing. He was great at taking the pictures without people noticing, but then was great when needing to organise the guest for group shots. We later discovered that Charlie had been very unwell the night before. However he was so professional that we did not even have the slightest idea. He was energetic and happy all day … I assume he crashed the next day! I could not be happier with the photos that we got back. Charlie has managed to capture so many great moments and has got great natural pictures of all the guests through out the day. Looking through the pictures in sequence, really brings back great feelings of the day …. even though i have looked through them 100's of times! :) Mike and I could not recommend Charlie more. His work is fantastic, his approach to his work is professional and his personality is so easy to get on with. We have not only got great photos but also a great memory of working with Charlie …

Awesome day, awesome photographer

Amanda & Duncan Farmer

April 2014

We just received all of our wedding shots from Charlie and were bowled over by how awesome they were. He captured the best day of our lives so perfectly, especially those 'stolen moments' throughout our day. One thing you realise about your wedding day is that it is over before you know it; being able to revisit the day through these amazing photographs is a gift! Aside from being a very talented photographer, Charlie is just the most enthusiastic, passionate person. It is very evident that he loves his job and he is willing to go above and beyond to ensure that you are happy and pleased with his work. Another thing that was a huge plus for us was that we were given all of the photographs without any hidden charges or additional costs. We've had a lot of friends who weren't happy with the way they other photographers charged for their weddings so it was nice to deal with someone who is honest and upfront. All in all, we had a great experience with Charlie and couldn't recommend him more. Like many people before us have said, he has become a mate now and we're really pleased that our paths crossed.

I can't tell you how happy i was with all the photos

Dawn & Ian

February 2014

unbelievable man !! a recommendation from a friend, who became a friend. talented, charismatic, lovely man whose talents were recognised last year by Patagonia themselves as he won their worldwide Patagonia Photographer of the Year award, quite an achievement, and just deserved. Charlie does a 'pre-wedding shoot'; its free, included in your price. WHY? well he said to us 'its the last time you are single..!' (like it..!) and also 'its makes you realize with me and on the day forget i am there'; I thought at the time...'well that sounds good' and didn't realise understand that pre-wedding shoot would work and make me relax on the day (i hate photos....) it worked; i didn't notice him on the day (apart from the 'organised photos'.. and that seemed like just getting together with friends !!) I asked for artistic, natural, 'different' shots. this chap has to talent to deliver that, and more; I can't tell you how happy i was with all the photos, i actually cried when i saw them (and i didn't cry on my wedding day !! well i did, when i saw my dog !!!!) one of our guests is asking him to take photos of his family when he is over in Chamonix at Christmas time. This chaps enthusiasm is what other people can only achieve with drugs !! he *loves* what he does *so much* .... and that is infectious. Charlie, you have become a great friend to us despite only meeting you a few times; we love you babes, dawn and ian x Wedding: 05/05/2012

Absolutely Amazing Pictures..!!

Andrew Hallett & Laia Massague

January 2014

A mutual friend kindly recommended Charlie’s services to us for our wedding in Barcelona. During the planning of the wedding we were acutely aware of how important the choice of wedding photographer was going to be. However, with Charlie behind the lens we had absolutely nothing to worry about. Charlie from day one was an absolute pleasure to work with, a consummate professional, and extremely sensitive to our needs and wishes. At every turn Charlie went out of his way to go the extra mile in his pursuit of the best possible photographs (which he achieved). This saw him going above and beyond the call of duty on the day, from running between venues to capture the different aspects we were after, to his ability to capture every possible emotion of the wedding ceremony down to the very last detail, while being acutely sensitive to the occasion. Charlie has the uncanny ability to put you at ease through the whole process, he knows exactly when to step in to get an absolutely unforgettable shot, and when to let you enjoy your wedding experience (a very fine balance to be able to tread, which he does with great success). We cannot possibly endorse Charlie enough for both his skill behind the camera and for his endless enthusiasm and enjoyment in what he does (its infectious). Charlie's enjoyment and passion in what he does shines through in his outstanding pictures, and makes having him there on the day an absolute pleasure. Charlie - thank you for memorializing the wedding experience for us, your photographs by far and away exceeded our wildest expectations. We really appreciated the endless time and effort you put into these photographs, both during the wedding (I seem to remember you working on them straight after the reception, which is dedication indeed), and in the following weeks. We really enjoyed having you as part of our wedding experience. I don’t think many people can say that about their photographer, and I think that is what separates you from your peers. Thank you again for the memories.

Awesome at what you do!

Asif Iqbal

January 2014

Wow Charlie. They look amazing. You are awesome at what you do. Once again thanks for everything. You made our day and all the guests loved you just as much as we do. Can't wait to see more. Speak to you soon Asif & Leanne

Thank you Charlie for producing a superb film to celebrate our parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. It was a daunting task that needed a great deal of organisation and time spent putting it all together. You managed to make everyone feel at ease that resulted in a hilarious film of memories and anecdotes. Interspering photographs worked brilliantly and the addition of music and old film footage resulted in a treasured gift that is unique to our parents. Your hard work and effort definitely paid off and everyone loved it! Thanks once again, Rebecca and Al.

AMAZING!!!

Cydney Birth

For starters the rating isn't high enough. 5 stars just doesn't describe what Charlie has done! Before I even had a chance to look for photographers my other half wanted Charlie and he wasn't wrong with his choice. I hate having my photo taken but Charlie made my wedding day so relaxed and enjoyable without worrying about where the photographer was. I didn't even notice him half the time and the shots he got were beautiful. He was amazing very professional and helped capture our day in a light that made us remember so much more. If anyone was to ask for a photographer then I would defiantly say Charlie. All our guests said you made them feel comfortable and relaxed. Thank you so much for capturing our special day and all the magical moments. You are the best. Thank you Charlie xx

The photos are fabulous

Hi Charlie, Thank you so much for the email... the photos are fabulous.

***** FIVE STARS **** Charlie's photographs were amazing. Not only were the photos great, but Charlie made us all feel comfortable and relaxed during the session.

Charlie was recommended to us by our vendor/planner at Haute Wedding as the photographer for our french alps destination wedding. Charlie is local to Chamonix, and as a keen snowboarder and after researching his work I knew he would be an excellent fit for our big day. However busy with numerous sports, travel and media projects on the go, Charlie was attentive and enthusiastic from the get-go and always available to discuss style inspiration, photography techniques and gave us an unforgettable pre-wedding photo shoot in a horse and carriage with a local Chamonix icon, Dr Zhivago. All of our guests commented on just how relaxed, personable yet professional and even experimental Charlie was with our wedding shoot creating some magical and mystical winter wonderland images in a sometime difficult overcast snow on sky setting. His stunning and candid guest portraits as well as in capturing the detail of our rings, my dress, as well as our DIY snowflake and antler themed table settings and decorations are keepsakes i will cherish forever. Charlie gave us so much of his time, in the lead up, on the day/night- staying as long as most guests was it 3am(?!) and in the aftermath to make a few edits and adjustments and ensuring we were completely satisfied with the final product, and it is for this I am most grateful. Charlie is passionate and professional, his business model and service is extremely generous and I would recommend his photography services to everyone.

Charlie the Great

It's taken me way too long to complete a review for the most-deserved Charlie. Mainly since he did such an impeccable job, I wanted to so aptly acknowledge him, yet couldn't quite find the words to fully describe his gift. I will just go for it now... There are many people who work for years to obtain a skill, and then there are the naturals, like Picasso, Dali... & Charlie Davies. Charlie has such an innate eye for capturing moments. He also happens to be one of the most personable people I have had the honor to know. Everyone thought he was a guest at our wedding, while he was working seamlessly and flexibly with the "team" to create a truly blessed wedding for us. We hired Charlie originally for a "quick" video, he then created one of the most fabulous teasers ever for us (backed by many cinematography pros), in addition to capturing some of the most artistic pictures of the bunch. I would trust Charlie again and again with the moments of my life. Hire him for sure.

Amazing attention to detail!

Charlie was a fantsatic photographer who not on;ly was able to capture the beauty of Chamonix, the special initimate nature to the day but also our fun individual personalities. He made sure that we now have some unforgettable memories captured in photo. We also had the great opportunity to have Charlie DJ for us at our wedding, he knew how to adapt his style and build the party atmosphere with great ease. It felt more like having a guest who knew how to photograph and DJ, due to his relaxed, amicable and genuine style. We would not hesitate in using Charlie's services again as a DJ and/ or as a photographer. A tres bientot on espere!

Our wedding photos are beautiful, Charlie you worked so hard to capture our perfect day. The Bride and Groom always miss so much of their wedding as they cant be everywhere at once! You caught so many moments we wouldn't have even known about and we are so grateful. Long after the dry cleaner has given up on trying to get the make up out of my dress and my dad has finished making his way through the cake tier we were saving...we have our pictures. They are the lasting legacy of our wedding. They will be looked at by generations to come and are a place where we will always be young and beautiful. Thank you Charlie for being a huge part of our wedding, you are creative, artistic, understanding and wonderful to work with. We are so grateful for everything and would recommend you to absolutely everyone. Sara and Elliot xxx

A Christmas to Remember

Dawn Seatter

January 2013

I don't even know where to begin. Maybe I'll start by thanking Charlie for creating a wonderful snowy morning in the Alps and capturing it all on camera. I don't remember the last time we had this much fun as a family. Like child, belly laughing, fun!! Charlie, you were SO incredibly easy to work with and we were all so comfortable with you and all the ideas you had. I had no doubt in my mind that the images you took were going to be good, but I didn't expect them to be that fabulous. They're like works of art. All 251 images. Now...the tough part for me...deciding which ones to print out. Thanks again, Charlie. Your Canadian Friends.

I've just realised its been almost a year and i still haven't written a few words for Charlie. The day we had on the slopes above Chamonix and into the evening with a handful of close friends and aquaintances probably ranks very highly as one of the best days of my life. All captured by the masterful eye of Mr Davies. A true gentleman and visionary. Humble, professional and talented and always there to capture that perfect moment. That day will live on beautifully documented and will bring a smile to my face for years to come and i'm really thankful for that. Thankyou bro....

Beautiful , you really made our wedding memories the most precious images captured. It means the world to us that you did such an amazing job as so many friends and family could not attend our wedding as it was in Antigua but the stunning photos you took enable us to show them to the people who missed it ! And they love them too. You worked so hard to capture as much as possible considering the short amount of daylight we had left to work with and your attention to detail is fantastic. We are so grateful for all your hard work that day and advise and confidence you gave us. You are an amazingly talented photographer with a great eye for detail and we would strongly recommend you to anyone planning a special event . A photographer captures the really special moments and keeps them as memories for years , we are so glad we chose you to keep our memories alive. Thank you Charlie. Natasha and Will.

THANK YOU for the photos

Hi Charlie, I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the photos! There are some great shots and a great mix of styles and settings, something for everyone! We love the one of the 4 of us in the distance walking away with the whole mountain range in the background- might make a good panoramic canvas! Also great ones on the rock....... Thanks again, and we hope to see you in winter for some action shots! Good luck with your move/not move! Cheers Helen Helen Price

Charlie is much more than a fantastic photographer

Jan Orzaleg

September 2012

Charlie is much more than a fantastic photographer. We chose Charlie to capture the memories of our wedding day as he has a genuine love for marriages and came across with a unique enthusiasm to be part of our celebration. Charlie suggested we did a pre-wedding shoot, which we thought would be good fun but it also turned out to be a great way to get used to Charlie and his lenses! We really enjoyed the morning and we instantly felt at ease with his natural approach and friendly style, prompting us into action but allowing us to feel totally at ease. On the day of our wedding, Charlie managed to be in all places at the same time! He captured the guys getting ready at one end of Chamonix, found time to take photos of our reception venue as well as spending a good hour with the bride and her entourage. Charlie missed nothing and captured amazing memories in beautiful portraits. We have the most amazing wedding album thanks to Charlie and I do not exaggerate in saying, Charlie made the day for us! Thanks a million

You are incredible... A true artist!

Wow. What a great thing to awake to. You are incredible... A true artist! We truly adore and appreciate you and your efforts and are even more bloody excited than before. To see you capture this in photos and video makes you one very clever man. Loads of Love Kris & Chris You made our day and dreams come true.

We were delighted with the photos Charlie produced from our wedding in Chamonix, coaxing us into the right poses, and orchestrating people on the day to ensure we also got some amazing images of our friends and family. Actually we were delighted to have him around in any capacity as he's also a charming guy and great fun at a party! Charlie's professional, courteous and has the crucial knack of getting wedding guests to do what he wants without coming across as pushy. We only met him once before the day but felt complete confidence in him. He took some stunning pictures of the wedding venues, from sunkissed glimpses of the mountain peaks to the truly awesome evening shots which somehow captured details on the horizon as well as us in the foreground. Thank you, Charlie, none of the compliments on this page are overstated. Giles and Nicola.

Charlie worked like an absolute demon our wedding barely pausing to let his feet touch the ground for a single moment. His photographic skills exemplify a range of artistic skills with a fantastic eye for detail, an innate ability to catch people in the moment and an amazing appreciation for the classic special couple photos all set against the dramatic mountain scenery of Chamonix, Mont-Blanc. His simply stunning portfolio has captured a mass of happy memories that will invoke a smile or two for many years to come in the future. A HUGE thank you to Charlie for his excellent photographic skills, boundless energy and enthusiasm. Look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Pure inspiration and talent

Charlie recently photographed our wedding and from the first time I spoke to him (a year in advance) to meeting him in person to getting the finished results he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. His eagerness to capture our day was equalled only by his talent for doing so and the pictures are utterly wonderful. Many of our guests took the trouble to tell me how much they liked Charlie, his ease and friendliness made it lovely having him there; like guest enjoying himself rather than a photographer doing his job. His passion for what he does shines through in every shot and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks Charlie and I really hope we stay in touch. Love Amanda & Peter Xx

Exceeded All Expectation's

Keith Walker Father Of The Bride

July 2012

Hi Charlie Just wanted to write and say a big thank you for doing such an excellent job at my son’s wedding. Neither of them like having their photos taken, don’t like photographers at weddings and only like a particular style of photo. So a bit of a challenge there for you there but you more than exceeded in every case. It was a pleasure to have you there on the wedding day. Although we did not know you until that weekend it was more like having a friend there taking the pictures than a wedding photographer. Although I have so far only seen the 40 teasers they are really great and capture a real French atmosphere as well as a family wedding day. Have just heard from Sars today and her words were, they are very very lovely just what I wanted. She is so excited and can’t wait to show them to us. If ever you are passing our place there is always a bottle of English beer waiting to be sup't and you will be more than welcome. Further if you need any recommendation, but I am sure you don’t, then by all means use our name as we could not be more delighted with your work. Kindest regards Keith

Family get-together

Chris & Christine Symington & Family

July 2012

Our family live in Chamonix, Devon and California so getting us all together with four grandchildren is not easy! We managed it only to find that the weather was against us and our original booking with Charlie had to be cancelled due to rain. However, the sun suddenly came out on our last day together and Charlie rang to ask if we could come up to his house at short notice and he would do the shoot using the fields and mountains around his house as a backdrop. The photos have arrived and we are all delighted. Charlie makes you feel at ease and his very informal style creates the right ambiance for photography. He managed to get the 4 grandchildren photographed in a natural way, rolling around in the grass with them etc! The more formal photos have turned out equally well and we are all very pleased with the results. Thanks Charlie! Well done!

Our wedding day as been perfect for us but went too fast to plenly enjoy it. You did fantastic pictures of our family, our gests, the atmosphere, the places and everything. You are so simple and true, it has been a real delight to meet you and share those precious moments with you. Now we have our memories and your pictures of that particular day for the rest of our lifes.....

Charlie was the photographer at our friends' recent wedding. At some point in the evening he managed to capture my young son and I sharing a heart-to-heart. It is quite simply the most beautiful photo I have ever seen, and not just because I'm in it! Thank you so much Charlie.

Tom & Lauras Wedding

Tom

February 2012

Charlie and I shot our wedding in Corsica last summer. Well, any new couple are going to talk about how great it was and how everything was perfect, but in our case Charlie really made a difference; simply put, the day would not have been as good as it was had he not been there photographing it. Charlie's character, smile and can-do attitude made everyone feel at home, and during the ceremony - late afternoon on a hilltop ouside - he was unobtrusive and polite. His fee was outrageously low in comparison to other 'big-name' photographers, and he delivered sensational photographs with an excellent eye for detail. Use him.

Many can take a picture but few can capture a moment.

Mr & Mrs Bradbury

June 2011

After viewing some of Charlie's previous wedding pictures, we decided to contact him regarding our own. From start to finish, Charlie was enthusiastic and keen to get the pictures we wanted from our special day. He made sure that he spoke to us individually to see what was important to each of us. Far from your typical wedding photographer, Charlie has an ability to see something that others may miss and made the whole process of having our pictures taken fun! He was seamlessly everywhere capturing every moment without us really noticing. We can not recommend Charlie highly enough, many can take a picture, but few can capture a moment, the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you Charlie.
