We absolutely love Charlie’s photos! When we first met Charlie at a local bridal fair, we fell in love with his artistic way to capture the moments, as well as the photo album he creates. He offered a comprehensive package for our wedding and executed each with the detail and care we appreciated. He is responsive and also accommodating to our wish. For example, we really wanted our engagement photos to be taken during the cherry blossom week and he was very amenable to our scheduling change when the day of our engagement photo session rained. The engagement pictures turned out fantastic, and he and his assistant certainly did not disappoint us on our wedding day! They were pleasant to work with, really worked hard throughout the wedding to capture every detail, and took amazing and beautiful photos of us, our family, and friends. We can’t wait to see how the photo albums will turn out! The guests also loved the photobooth we got through him – we only wish we added a service so that the guests can e-mail the digital copy to themselves. Overall, we are extremely happy with his service and will recommend without hesitation!

I first used Charlie as a vendor with my work in DC and loved him from day one. If you are fortuante enough to work with his partner Monica as well, the two of them together are the DREAM TEAM.
They went above and beyond producing over 1500 photos on the wedding day. Charlie is like a ninja - he is EVERYWHERE. I had so many comments from my family members how he was the best photographer they have ever seen.
There is no need to give Charlie a shot list - I promise you he has the best eye and will blow you away with what he produces. I didn't know it was me in some of the shots - besides the fact that I was the bride!
I couldn't say nicer things about Charlie and his team; he is personable,approchable, responsive, hilarious and willing do work with you on anything. I loved working with them on my wedding day and engagement pictures and will continue to use his company as a photographer for my work as well. I promise, you will NOT be disappointed- he is worth every penny and more.

Charlie Shin Photography completely captured every aspect of the wedding I could possibly ask for, from photo journalism to posed pictures, candids, and we are sooo glad we added on the Photobooth package. The professionalism from Charlie Shin himself along with his associates were on point! Not only did we get all the digital prints to all of the pictures taken for our engagement and wedding, we also got all of the photobooth pictures! People are still talking about how much fun the photobooth was. Everything was more than I could ask for. We are very happy with the services we received!

First of all, he did an awesome job for our engagement photos. I was absolutely satisfied with his work! Photos he took were very unique and creative that all of my friends were asking where we got it done. Taking photos all day can be exhausting but he made it so much fun and exciting. I must say he is definitely good at what he does, and he's got great personality that you will surely become friends with him by the end of the day. I highly recommend him for any special occasion photos! You won't regret choosing him ;)

If you are planning a wedding, pick Charlie. At first we had a few vendors who had similar packages and offers. But, after meeting Charlie and seeing his work first hand, I had no doubt in my mind Charlie was the one. Since we signed the contract, Charlie took the time to listen, go through any instructions or material I had given, and met with me whenever I needed him to. On the wedding day, Charlie was there on time and was ready. He had studied the must have and nice to have shots. He worked with us patiently. He worked the whole night tirelessly with his team. They didn’t complain a bit even though we were running late. After the wedding, with a week he posted >1200 amazing pictures. And he listen to me on all of the questions and concerns I have. As a bride, I would recommend Charlie to any bride, not just for the quality of the pictures, but also for his hard work, dedication, and professionalism. His service and outcome is second to none!

Working with Charlie was better than I ever expected. My husband and I knew how talented he was just by looking at his other work but he definitely blew my expectations out of the water. He is the master of lighting and lives up to his nickname as the "storyteller". Looking at our wedding photos brings me back to that exact moment during our very special day. Thank you Charlie and to your lovely assistant for shooting on our wedding day.

Charlie and his team did such a wonderful job with our wedding pictures! Charlie photographed our friend's wedding and my brothers's wedding so we already knew that he would do a great job. He was always professional and was not only a photographer but also entertainer. He was so fun at the reception. Our pictures turned out great. We have never had such wonderful pictures taken of us. He captured the most important day for us better than we could have imagined. Charlie went far above our expectations. After my wedding, one of my friend booked him for their wedding in Chicago.

Photography was the most important part of my wedding . We found CSP after emailing a lot of photographers and videographers. After our first meeting, I knew he has to be my photographer. I booked his team right away. He is really sweet, always smiling and took the most beautiful photos of my wedding. CSP made us comfortable, laugh and took gorgeous photos. All my family and friends commented on how beautifully Charlie and his team captured our wedding. If you are looking for a really talented, friendly photographer,I highly recommend CSP. Love!
