Charise is an amazing and talented photographer. She has a great eye for shooting and knows exactly how to make the shots look their best. For the quality of her work, she comes at a low cost for a professional wedding photographer so value wise, she is outstanding! My only small critique is that she has a TON of weddings she does and is not always the most responsive. If you are the type of person that needs a lot of attention and someone who will work with you to make your wedding photography EXACTLY how you would like it, she might not be the best choice for you. However, if you are the type of person who trusts the vendors you hire as professionals who know best what they are doing, she is the best photographer you could ever choose! Great to work with, professional, talented, and well priced, Charise is a quality wedding photographer you will not regret choosing as yours!

Charise and her assistant Brady did an amazing job photographing our recent Malibu wedding. Charise is extremely clear and upfront about her packages and walked us through everything. She is extremely friendly and made us feel very comfortable at both our engagement shoot and our wedding day. The pictures came out amazing and the editing made them even better. We plan to use Charise for any future photography needs, and would highly recommend her for any event!

Charise was absolutely amazing! Our engagement photos were exactly what we wanted. She was there through the entire wedding making sure we got all the shots we had told her we wanted a head of time and reminding us about people we hadn't taken pictures with yet. Her team was so awesome and so much fun! They definitely lightened the mood so we were comfortable and more ourselves in front of the camera. I will definitely be using her again for any other photos we need done!

Loved Charise and loved Jen Harris (who came to work with her that day). They did an amazing job, were fun, were silly, were personable and took some amazing pictures. Got our pics back I think within 1 1/2 months or so (maybe less?) and they are gorgeous. Got our wedding album back also very quickly and it looks fabulous! Would recommend Charise to anybody!

I knew that Charise was going to be our wedding photographer right away after meeting her. Not only did I love her work, she was friendly, professional, funny, and made us feel extremely comfortable. We were nervous for our engagement photos but Charise had us feeling like naturals in no time. On the day of our wedding Charise and her associate Jen were a pleasure to be around and were extremely helpful. My dress might not have gotten bustled if it wasn’t for Charise! We love love love all of our pictures. They turned out so great it was hard to narrow them down for the album. I would definitely recommend Charise to anyone looking for a photographer and I hope I can use her again in the future.

Charise and her team were a lot of fun to take pictures with. They
captured most of the wedding emotions and events, even the ones I was not aware
of. The gorgeous pictures make the venue look even more beautiful than it was in
person. Charise was very fast to respond to any questions that I had, and gave us so
many beautiful pictures we can’t pick just 100 of our favorites for an album. We will
definitely use Charise for any future photography needs.

Phenomenal! Exceeded our expectations. Charise's work stands out above the rest. She has a unique eye when it comes to interesting and new shots while also capturing timeless memories. We told Charise what we wanted and she personally took us out for an engagement shoot and helped us try all sorts of poses in various gorgeous settings/backdrops. She met with us a couple times to go over next steps, etc. and worked around our crazy hours. She and an assistant came to the wedding and shot for 5 hours from the setup to the dressing room, to the ceremony and reception. She offers a multitude of options for purchasing prints and we couldn't be happier!

I was apprehensive to trust services that I found over the internet without a personal reference, but Charise was the BEST find ever. She captured the biggest day of my life with such care and attention to detail. She was professional, warm, friendly, flexible, creative, kind and really knows her art . . . as well as having terrific temperment. I would recommend her very highly! Not only is she a incredibly talented artist, but she also brings a calm and peaceful manner with her that is very necessary when there is a bit if chaos on your wedding day. Also, she is really reasonable with her rates, and from the quality of work that you get she is well worth every penny.
