Charné was very professional and great to work with. The pics she got for us were fantastic and she had a very good manner to her when working with big groups in a somewhat chaotic environment. Fantastic photographer!

It is my pleasure to be writing this recommendation for Charne ,who shot my number events , number of weddings and lately my website pictures Charne is an exceptionally talented and unique photographer who was an absolute dream to work with. She is 150% reliable, patient, humble, considerate, resourceful, incredibly hardworking, and stays positive and amiable no matter what happens. She is also an excellent communicator and troubleshooter with a wonderfully charming sense of humor, which makes her delightful to be around. Charne’s sensible and organized methodology that allowed plenty of room for artistic freedom was a great way to work, and we fell into sync almost instantly as if we had been working together for decades. Charne has a natural gift for translating the story and themes into beautiful shots while remaining loyal to the my vision. She also had tons of fantastic ideas drawing upon her extensive technical knowledge, such as using her own lights, which boosted the production value far beyond what I thought possible within my limited budget. On set, Charne was a consummate professional all around, which was especially a blessing during inevitable setbacks during production. Her ability to spin on a dime while staying calm was instrumental to finding great solutions on the fly.Working with Charne was one of the most fulfilling and enjoyable creative collaborations I have ever experienced. I look forward to working with her again many times over. I am certain that she will be an indelible asset to any project, and recommend her for weddings , events or websites More...

It's almost been 5 years since Charné @captivatingphotography took our wedding day photos.

When we page through our Album, we are reminded of the love and emotions we felt that day. All of that captured in your photos.

Charné has got a keen eye on making a photo look modern and timeless at the same time - This is a very special trait.

We only speak praises of you and your team whenever anyone asks us about our photos.

Thanks

After our wedding photographer ran out on us and left us with no pictures, I never thought I'd have good wedding photos. 10 years later when we renewed our vows, Charne changed all that. She's a phenomenal photographer with such a natural talent for angle/light that every single photo was wonderful. No consideration needed, if you're looking for a photographer, she's the one you need. More...

Charne is truly a master of her craft! My husband & I live in Canada & planned our wedding in Scotland from there. Charne was incredibly accommodating, often having Whassap calls with an anxious bride in Canada haha! It is not easy planning a wedding from overseas, but Charne ensured the transition was easy for Craig & I. We absolutely love our wedding photos which capture the love, laughter & tears of our very special wedding day in such an intimate & professional way! I would recommend Charne to any of my friends. � � More...

We were looking for a photographer for our wedding and came across Charne's website. We instantly loved her photos because they were so vibrant and colourful. Charne is true artist with her photography. Not only were we blown away by our photos, but the whole process was so professional from our initial enquiry all the way through to our wedding day. Charne met with us in a hotel to go over every detail and she was meticulous in every aspect. We could not recommend her highly enough nor and praise her photography skills and professionalism highly enough. Furthermore she was excellent with our guests, gentle and kind and making sure we were all laughing and having a good time whilst having our photos were taken. A truly captivating photography experience! More...

I was looking for a photographer that could really bring the events we were running alive in photos. I needed the energy from the day conveyed in the images for press shots and websites. Charne totally understood what we were trying to get from the day and delivered over and above. I was so impressed with the images, they're awesome!! On top of that the experience of working with Charne from start to finish was great, hassle free and enjoyable. Would highly recommend and will definitely come back to Charne for future work. Thank you so much!!! More...
