That's me! David Charlesworth. Self portrait, shot at the end of a long wedding day. How can you resist a magical evening such as this?

My name is David. I'm a photographer, business man and risk taker. Photography has always been a passion, but hasn't always been a business. It is my dealing with the people  I meet and photograph, that really makes photography rewarding. From high flying heads of large companies, to humble and shy couples on their wedding day, my clients invite me into their slice of the world, allowing me to share even if only for a moment. My work is like a backstage pass into lives. I love that. And I treat it with respect.

Weddings are where we are ourselves. I get to see people at their best, and brightest... bridezillas need not apply.  Your photos need to be soulful, touching, artistic and timeless. Choosing a photographer is a large decision, make sure it's someone whom you trust, and can laugh along with. It is crazy, but there is a good chance that the person you will spend the most time with on your wedding day, won't be your future husband or wife, but instead your photographer! If you love the look of a photographer's photos, great. That's where you start. But just as importantly, you've gotta mesh well personality wise.

PRICING

Wedding photography... its a lot of money. It doesn't seem to matter, if you have $200, $2000 or $20,000 for a budget, the chances are... to you, its a lot of money. Keep in mind, that a lot of your cool stuff from your big day will pass away. Flowers? Last a week. Food? I don't even wanna go where that ends up! Photos? They are your first family heirloom, make sure you get good ones. They don't even have to be from me! Just make sure they're good, and their delivered by a professional.  I've heard too many horror stories about friendships being fractured, from screwed up wedding photos.

I'm not a big fan of doing half a job. Almost every wedding I book, I book with an engagement photo session. This isn't just to get "more photos" but to spend some time, you and I and mr. camera. Its at this time that we work out the bumps, and anxiety. Tackle just how bad your fake smile is, and overall work on some tips and tricks to get you looking and feeling like a million bucks. Once you get the photos back, and you look amazing, all of a sudden you'll realize that you can do it, you're gonna look great, and you are gonna have fun doing it. 

Full day wedding coverage usually means, 12ish hours. If you have needs outside of this, let me know, I can work with that. I usually like to catch the guys and the girls getting ready, and stick around until the party starts. I'll make a few rounds of the dance floor, and make sure to get the wallflowers too. Then I go home. Tuckered out.
