I can only say that Charla was great!

Our wedding was at Hilton Waikoloa in Hawaii and Charla made such memorable and creative pictures. What I like the most is that she was able to "catch the emotion". These are the kind of pictures we wanted and that's exactly what we got.

Charla was very responsive and very good at follow-ups. It helped me reduce the stress and enjoy our wedding day! The final result is great and totally worth it! Our family and friends loved the pictures.
Now that the wedding is over, it seams like a dream, but looking at the pictures we have, I live every moment once again.

Thank you Charla and we wish you all the best!

Your pictures are already very valuable in our family collection!

Not only were my wedding pictures amazing, Charla Thompson had my photos ready for me to review within a week! She posted my photos online so I could look at them and send them to my family and friends. Her website also made the photos available to order which I loved. She provided me with several picture discs that were labeled and well categorized so I could find specific photos. Charla is an amazing photographer and artist who captured emotion in every photo. She is great at organizing people for group shots as well which can be challenging. She captured everything and more. Most importantly, my husband and I have tons of photos of ourselves on out special day.
