Hey I'm Charlotte

 

...and I like to photograph people. I shot my first wedding in 2011 and – some 100ish weddings later – I still get teary at the speeches. I'd love to hear all about your plans for your big day.

A little more about me

 
 

I have a degree in maths and economics from LSE and worked in finance for a bit. A career change into a self-employed creative is one of the scariest, best decisions of my life so far.

 

My family is originally from China but I grew up mostly in Birmingham. No 'Thomas F***ing Shelby' accent to show for it though.

 

I will never tire of Parks & Recreation reruns. Ron Swanson is my spirit animal and the show just makes me so darn happy.

 

Bramble is my African pygmy hedgehog. She likes licking leather stuff, pushing her head into empty loo rolls, and falling asleep snuggled into an armpit.

 

When I’m not shooting weddings, I also photograph food and travel. I feel very grateful to be able to bring together my favourite things in life and be able to make a living out of it.

 

So far I’ve travelled to 23 countries and live in an almost-permanent state of wanderlust. Every year, my boyfriend and I take at least one trip to Italy to eat our body weight in pasta.
