We were so happy with every detail that Charleton captured in our engagement and wedding photos. Charleton has a natural talent for capturing truly unique and priceless moments in life. His passion for photography is truly evident in person and in the photos that he creates. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Charleton for future weddings and engagement photography. He is personable, professional, easy to communicate with and truly talented. He is willing to work with you to make sure that your vision is also seen in the photographs. We have received so many positive comments from friends, family and strangers on how beautiful and unique or photos are. We couldn't be happier with Charleton Churchill Photography!!!

Charleton is such an amazing photographer he is so talented and so much fun to work with. I searched for a long time before I found charleton. I even had friends that were photographers, that I was going to use. But I couldn't pass up his work. Not only is it photgraphy but it is a work of art. I don't think there was a single picture out of all my engagments pictures that I didn't like. I received all my wedding photos and I wanted to put all the photos in my wedding album but I could only put so many.
If I had another wedding or big event I would diffently use him again. He is well worth it. The xtra money that I paid to use him was diffently worth it. So happy I found him!!!

Charleton is one of the most artistic photographers out there in the field. He has such a great eye for colors, symmetry, point of reference, balance, and just the right body posture he just makes his job look so easy! We had our wedding on September 2011, I was very diligent in finding the best photographer out there and, of course, I found Charleton! I even flew him from California to shoot our engagement and wedding in New York! Yes, he really is that good. He has great energy and always has a very distinct artistic style to make you look FABULOUS even if it's just for one day. My husband and I had a blast posing for Charleton. He made the entire picture taking process a blast for ourselves and the rest of the wedding party! The smiles and laughter were all genuine, thanks to Charleton's impromptu comments, and it showed through the pictures beautifully! He has such great charisma and interacting with him made it so super easy. Charleton is also very patient; he takes the time for you to be comfortable in front of the camera and he really makes it so fun. I know I lived out my "modeling" fantasy! He was mindful, considerate and discrete during the ceremony and captured the lively moments during our reception. You will not regret having Charelton by your side making sure that your wonderful moments at your wedding last a lifetime through his beautiful photos.

Charleton has all the technical skills to take AMAZING pictures. His knowledge of the art enables him to compose and produce really stunning photographs. But anyone who looks at his work can see this. What his portfolio doesn't show is how great he is to work with. He's a consummate professional who makes his subjects feel comfortable, and beautiful. He has a way of seeing into a person and knowing what will help them be their best.

I can't say enough good things about Charleton! My husband and I were searching for a photographer for our wedding and Charleton came as a recommendation from our wedding planner. Once we saw his work, we knew we had to book him. Not only is his work amazing, he is a great person as well. He made our shoots fun and we felt relaxed. I've recommended him to my friends, and I'd recommend him to you.

We were fortunate enough to have Charleton as our photographer at our wedding. The first thing i hear from family and friends about our wedding is how outstanding our photos are. "stunningly beautiful" to be exact. Charleton is not just a photographer, he is an artist, choreographer, and genuinely kind person. As a bride, I felt comfortable and at ease in his presence. Charleton lived up to his reputation of being the "best" and I would highly recommend him.

Charelton does amazing work!! This man is truly gifted and has found his calling in life. We loved the fact that he could capture simple moments in such an artistic and dramatic fashion. We are extremely pleased with our photos and if we were to ever renew our vows, we will definitely hire Charleton again. Wouldn't even consider anyone else!! He's very easy to work with, and really delivered what we were looking for in our wedding photos. We cannot recommend him enough!!

I knew Charleton would be a great choice when my very demanding, wedding-photographer-mother gave his portfolio a thumbs up. And he absolutely delivered.
Our photos just look natural - he just captured so many perfect moments. He knew how to work with us and knew what would stand out. The simple beauty of his photos almost betrays how much work he put into catching the perfect shot - he definitely worked hard to get them, but the result is natural rather than contrived.
Wedding photos were an area where we were willing to spend a bit more so that we could get images that we'd love for a lifetime. Several of them are blown up around our house. Would recommend Charleton to any bride in a heartbeat.

Charleton is an amazing photographer! He was an absolute professional. He made everyone feel comfortable and took amazing pictures! If you want the most amazing pictures to remember and capture your special day then Charleton will deliver. I could not be happier. I've been to some wedding where the photographers are not personable, rude and bossy Charleton is the opposite! He made you and your family comfortable and captures the special moments! He is amazing and my husband and I can't rave enough about him!

Here is a letter we sent to Charleton to give you an idea of how we felt about his work:
Sorry it took so long, but we wanted to thank you for everything you did for our wedding. We absolutely love the photos you gave us and couldn't be happier with the way they turned out.
You and your team were absolute professionals and did a great job at the wedding. All of our guests were very complimentary of your team and their professionalism, and everyone we have shown the pictures to are blown away by the quality of work. Ariel was especially great at making sure everyone was in line and knew exactly how stern to be with our stubborn family in order to make sure everything ran smoothly and was perfect. We are very happy that we had her come along to help you with the photos. You would have certainly had your hands full without her.
We really appreciate everything you did for us and would be happy to refer you to any of our friends with upcoming weddings. I think with the photos we have shown people you might have some new customers coming your way someday soon.

Charleton did a fantastic job with his photography at our wedding. We had so much fun playing around with lighting and angles and he came up with shots I would have never dreamed of. As I think with many women I am not a big fan of having my picture taken but he helped me feel relaxed and beautiful. Our whole wedding party and guests enjoyed his energy and creativity to get more than just the standard shot. I wish I could have shoots with him every day! DEFINITELY book him!!!!

Oh my goodness I cannot say enough good things about Charleton!!! He is our engagement pictures, which turned out amazing. Then he photographed us on our wedding day and that was an amazing experience in itself. I love Charleton's passion for photographer and how excited he gets when he knows he got a good shot. Both him and his assistant were very nice and friendly and made you feel very comfortable because they are easy to talk to people. We only got married a few weeks ago and because Charleton always wants to put out amazing work, we have not seen our pictures yet, but I know they will be absolutely amazing. We got to see a few at the wedding that were untouched and they were more amazing than we ever expected. If you are looking for a wedding photographer you have to go with Charleton. He may be a little pricier than you were hoping, but trust me he is way worth it and those photos you will have as memory will be way worth it.

We highly recommend Charleton Churchill as your wedding or event photographer. He is an extremely talented individual and a super great guy to work with. He made being the focus of a camera feel natural and fun. We are so thrilled with our pictures and we have received many compliments from our guests not just for the pictures, but also for how great he was at the wedding interacting with our guests. Charleton is very creative and is able to take dramatic photos--which when you see them will amaze you that those pictures are of you--as well as the nice traditional wedding shots. We were very undecided about who we wanted to hire as our photographer but after searching many photographers profiles we contacted Charleton and right off the bat we liked him. We highly recommend doing the engagement shoot with Charleton as it gives you a chance to get to know him better and his style, and also to figure out what poses/styles you will like. Charleton used the engagement photos to create our wedding sign in book which looked fantastic. He is extremely professional and easy to work with and responded to our phone calls and emails promptly. The day of the wedding Charleton and his crew worked a really long long day but were energetic and smiling throughout the entire day. We also had him do a photobooth and that was the best idea ever! All our guests loved it and he really made everyone feel like supermodels and now we have a great book of photos to look through. We wholeheartedly recommend Charleton.

From the moment I saw Charleton Churchill's website, I wanted to book him! He's a true artist and that shows through his work immediately. And as someone who is not very photogenic, I knew the photographer we choose for our wedding was going to need to be the best! And, that is what we got! During our first meeting at a coffee shop, I discovered that Charleton was based out of my hometown in Amador County and the location of my wedding. He kept racking up the points!!!
Charleton has an effortless way of capturing all of the intimate moments of a wedding in a very unique and non-intrusive manner. We had a blast during our engagement shoot. Charleton's energy, sense of humor, and laid back style made my husband and I feel completely at ease. On our wedding day, Charleton and Gavin captured all of the festivities brilliantly and interjected a whole lot of fun for the wide range of people in attendance. We received two discs with hundreds of pictures only 3 weeks after the wedding day, and in the middle of the busiest part of wedding season!
Charleton Churchill is an excellent photographer, talented artist, and just a super fun and nice guy!

Charleton photographed my sister's California wedding in 2009, so I was thrilled when I found out he was willing to come to Denver for our wedding. Right away, he handled everything so professionally. He sent us a detailed contract so we knew exactly what his services were and what he needed from us. He showed up to our venue during our rehearsal and talked to our wedding coordinator, which I loved- it showed us that he was really taking it seriously. He told me about shots that he'd like to get the next day and had done research to get some fresh new ideas.
The day of the wedding was wet and rainy, but we decided to go downtown with Charleton before the wedding to get some good shots. We felt a little silly running in the middle of the street with an umbrella, but the pictures turned out beautifully! When we got back to the venue, we once again braved the rain and took pictures outside. His artistic eye is spot-on: the pictures looked like they were from a magazine. I can tell a noticeable difference between our photographer and some of our friends' photographers. The pictures are much more creative and perceptive. I am so happy that Charleton was there to document our special day!

Just the engagement session alone was great. Lots of fun to work with he had awesome ideas and personality to match. Wedding is around the corner and can't wait to pose for pictures with all my family and friends!

Charleton Churchill is incredible. He has a way of capturing your true emotions and personalities. He shot our wedding and engagement pictures, and managed to make two people who are very uncomfortable in front of a camera look natural and relaxed. My heart melts every time I look at our images and see the way my husband is looking at me and I at him, Charleton captured the love that we share for sure.
He is so easy to work with and has an amazing eye. He has great ideas and is not afraid to take chances. He really listens to you and incorporates your individuality in your session. He pushes the boundaries and is inspired by everything around him. Charleton is relaxed, confident and professional, it was so much fun to work with him.
Couture, documentary, candid, fun, elegant,
Charleton not only delivers extraordinary photography with the highest ratings and reviews from couples, but he's also personable, a good listener, paying attention to detail and your needs. His passion is documenting the one day of your life you'll want to remember with style and fun.
