I specialize in photojournalistic Wedding Photography, casual and traditional family portraits, and stylistic individual portraits.

I take a storytelling approach to wedding photography. The concept is simple. Just be yourself. Celebrate, laugh, cry - I'll capture it. The results are profound. Your photos will convey the mood and expressions of your unique moments. I look for genuine and spontaneous connections between people and find instances which may not be obvious, but taken as a whole, compliments the entire story.

A wedding photographer only has a split second to capture the essence of a fleeting telling moment, the glimmer of a look, the spark or glow of light at an angle. An effective photographer must have the skill, experience, passion and eye to rise to that demand.

Rest assured, you can depend on me to capture the soul and spirit of your big day, and relay your stories powerfully and elegantly.

Contact me to reserve your wedding date or portrait session or make an appointment to meet with me personally. Read less

We loved the pictures that Charles took for our wedding! We found Charles through Yelp and were so impressed by his portfolio on his website. Charles spends time with each of his clients to get to know them and their preferences. He has an extraordinary talent for catching moments. His photo-journalistic approach allowed him to capture some expressions that we never knew we had. We are so happy we selected him because of his organization, professionalism, and the fantastic pictures he took for us.

We had the pleasure to have Charles as our photographer on the most important day of our lives. Charles was the best we could have chosen! He arrived on a timely manner and was professional while adding endless laughter to our day. In the consults prior to the event date, we explained to Charles our family are not posers and our parents don't ever smile in pictures. He definitely listened and candidly captured each one of them smiling and expressing emotions no words can explain. Of course we had our magazine like shots as well so you have the best of both worlds (type of photography). Both Charles and his assistant Amanda were polite, personable, warm, funny, quick and efficient. We felt comfortable with them and had lots of fun! It's extremely important to trust your photographer since this type of day can not pause or replay. He captured moments I had no idea he was around to capture and thanks to him I will forever have those photos to cherish. We are absolutely in L.O.V.E with our Wedding Album and I would highly highly recommend Charles to trust with capturing your special moments at any special occasion. We are honored to have chosen Charles as our photographer!

Charles of Charles Le Photography was the photographer for my wedding on August 6, 2011 and my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding on September 1, 2013. We plan to use Charles for all our special occasions from here on! In addition to creating wonderful results, Charles is extremely easy to work with and we now consider him to be one of our dear friends.
Charles has a gift for capturing special moments, particularly with his candid shots and his eye for details. My own wedding – a garden wedding in our backyard, with our 8 grown children and 2 grandbabies in our wedding party – was captured in beautiful detail. One of the shots from the evening of our wedding is now displayed over our mantel in our formal living room, and many family photos captured the day before the wedding now decorate a two-story wall in our home (our family is quite large!). We love Charles’ artistry and his playfulness. We also appreciate how easy Charles was to work with during our special day.
Charles’ work for my daughter and son-in-law’s (Melissa and Justin’s) wedding included gorgeous “engagement” photos in outdoor settings that perfectly suit Melissa and Justin. They are gorgeous photographs that we will treasure. The wedding photographs are also amazing. Melissa and Justin had a “wedding weekend” that involved a family camp, with a campfire, games and other festivities prior to the wedding itself – at a location in the redwoods. Charles captured the excitement and playfulness of this special weekend with his use of candid and traditional shots of the day and weekend. The wedding was both rustic and elegant – and Charles’ artistry helps us to preserve these beautiful memories. So many of his shots will be perfect to enlarge on canvases - they are beautiful works of art.
I highly recommend Charles to anyone in need of a professional photographer – and in particular for anyone planning a wedding and looking for a true artist to capture the special moments.

Charles is beyond fantastic. I knew before I even got engaged that I wanted to get him to shoot my wedding if possible. Even though he had a wedding he was shooting the day before my wedding several hours away, he drove all the way to Yosemite to shoot the event. His photos are incredible: His posed pictures look relaxed, the way he plays with light is beautiful, and his candid shots capture multiple small scenes in every photo. They are truly works of art. On top of all that, he's so much fun to work with! A true professional. I will cherish my photos forever -- thanks, Charles!

My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found Charles Le (on Yelp!) to photograph our wedding. We received high quality and creative photographs at a fair price.

Charles arrived on time and brought along several cameras and lenses. He was laid back, but attentive to capture every special moment; his trained eye allowed him to capture the details that resulted in great photographic composition. Although our small private ceremony took place on a cold December day in the Madera Courthouse, the look of our photographs rival those of a much larger wedding, costing thousands of dollars!

Charles Le is very creative and adept at using and enhancing the natural environment to create photographic memories that feel dynamic and alive! One of our favorite photos was taken in the small park behind the courthouse -- nothing special to look at - especially in the middle of winter. However, the finished photos look as though we were strolling blissfully through the middle of Central Park on a beautiful fall day!
Very creatively, Charles set up various shots with US in the starring role! We never dreamed we would have had so much fun being photographed or now be so proud of our wedding pictures!

We recommend Charles Le Photography without reservation and will definitely call upon him for ALL of our future photography needs.


(And, ladies, ask Charles about his Pin Up Girl photo package - it is not to be missed!)

I proposed to my wife (Annie) in late May 2010 and we decided to have an early November wedding. This means we had roughly six months to plan a wedding and within a week of our engagement we were online, frantically searching for a photographer that would meet our needs. As with most engaged couples, we realized the utter importance of booking a good photographer. Not only does your wedding day happen once, but, the day inevitably, fly’s by in what seems like a few short moments (spectacular moments I might add). That being said, photos are an incredible & intimate way to relive your wedding and capture those instances you and your spouse missed in all of the excitement. We contacted seven reputable photographers in the central valley and set up meetings to discuss our wedding and our expectations. Mr. Charles Lee was in fact the first photographer we contacted and met with because we were absolutely blown away by his work. Upon meeting Charles, we like him immediately. Charles is a true artist, who is truly passionate about what he does and it reflects in how he treats his customers. Charles spent the most time with us than did any other photographer during our initial meeting and he made it a point to get to know us as individuals and as a couple. Let me tell you that establishing a good relationship with your photographer is key, because having a person who feels like a stranger take photo’s of you can feel awkward and poses the risk of adding to an unnatural feel to your photos. Charles did an outstanding job of making us feel comfortable and ensuring that by the wedding day, we had established a great rapport with one another. We walked away after meeting with Charles, knowing that he was definitely in the running; but we wanted to be sure he was our guy, so we met with the other six photographers. After meeting with all the photographers there was no questions that Charles would be taking the photos for our wedding. It’s not that the other photographers weren’t talented, but Charles was the whole package… brilliant photographer, personable, passionate, encouraging and the list could go on. We booked Charles and it wasn’t one of those deals where we didn’t hear from him until a week before the wedding. Charles kept in contact with us, helped answer questions and many times, called/texts just to make sure the plans were running smoothly. Charles met with us to discuss the wedding a couple days before the big date and made sure he had every detail down! Annie and I were already pleased with our decision to book Charles before the wedding, but during and after the wedding, we were even more ecstatic with our decision. During the wedding, Charles not only took pictures, but he helped with wedding organization, making sure people were where they needed to be and most importantly, he made sure my bride was taken care of. Charles was all over the place during the wedding ceremony and reception; he didn’t miss a beat. Charles thrives on taking in-the-moment pictures and he does an incredible job; if you don’t believe me, check out his website. Annie and I got our pictures back and were not disappointed, they were every bit of what we anticipated and more!! Charles was able to capture some incredible moments; he has such a knack for seeing things before they happen. Annie and I now have some amazing wedding photos that we look at often and it has been a treat to share them with our family. We will undoubtedly cherish our wedding photos for many years to come.

Thank you Charles!

Charles photographed our wedding this weekend, and we couldn't be happier. Our wedding was on Saturday, and he quickly uploaded over 100 teaser pictures by Monday night. There were so many amazing pictures that I'd be happy enough with just those!

I am normally not a fan of taking pictures, but Charles was able to take so many shots without me ever really realizing that pictures were being taken. We had an intimate ceremony and reception with those closest to us, and Charles really captured the closeness of everyone there and the emotions throughout the day. We highly recommend Charles for any event... we look forward to working with him again for future baby pics :)

Charles is a magnificent photographer! I was skeptical about paying for a photographer but he was really worth every penny and then some! All of my pictures have turned out perfectly and they were ready almost immediately after! He and his assistant were very professional and kept everybody on track when we were taking all of the family photos. During the wedding we didn’t even notice he was there and I’ve received many compliments from my guests about how the photographer wasn’t in their way at all. I’ve heard horror stories about blurry pics, inappropriate pics, rude photographers, missed family shots, etc, and with Charles you don’t have to worry about anything! So far we’ve used Charles for family pics, wedding pics, and when we need baby pics I’ll be calling him!

PICK CHARLES TO BE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER BECAUSE AFTER YOUR BIG DAY IS OVER AND YOU BARELY REMEMBER A THING ALL YOU HAVE IS THE PICTURES AND HE’LL CAPTURE THE BEST MEMORIES FOR YOU!

Charles was the photographer for my wedding in Marin, and I couldn't be happier with his work. He was on-time, he was quiet and blended into the background when appropriate, and he let us be ourselves for the pictures instead of trying to put us into awkward positions. Best of all was the fact that his pictures were very natural and overall told the story of our day. He also had "teaser" photos available to us before we even got back from our honeymoon! For all of these reasons, I highly recommend Charles for photographing any event.
