My Style & Approach

Natural Kent wedding photographer, Maidstone

My wedding photography style is all about capturing you and your guests having fun in a real natural way. I don't want you to feel like your wedding day is a chore with having all those countless posed photos, so I stand back and document the day as it happens. Being a candid Kent wedding photographer, I'm there to capture the smiles, the laughter and every special moment in-between.

I believe that your wedding photographer should be one for the most important decisions for your day. After all a wedding cake gets eaten and you wear your wedding dress once, but your photographs are forever. Something to look back on for years to come. I want you to remember your day exactly as it happened. So no false poses, no awkward group shots, just real, fun natural moments.

The nerves, the love, the passion, I'm in love with every aspect of documenting a wedding. I simply want to tell your story, show your emotions and give you the best memories of one of the most important days of your life.  

Being a Kent wedding photographer in Maidstone, creates so many great opportunities to shoot at some fantastic venues. I've had the pleasure of photographing weddings at some of my favourite venues which include; Cooling Castle Barn, The BarnYard, Winters Barns, Lympne Castle and The Old Kent Barn.

If you think I may be the Kent wedding photographer for you, whether your getting married in a church, registry office, barn or any other venue, I'd love for you to get in touch and discuss your perfect wedding photography package now.

'Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong doing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.'

-corinthians 13.1-13

Being a natural Kent wedding photographer, I believe the best images come from real natural emotion and thats what I hope to bring out of my couples. I may run around like a lunatic or be laying flat on the floor at times, but if it makes you laugh, thats great, embrace my weirdness!

Every wedding is different and unique and this is what keeps my passion alive. The run of the day may be similar, but everything else it completely personal to you, no two weddings are ever the same. I love to find new ways to document and show your day through somebody else's eyes. The light, the venues, the passion, I love it all. 

When its time for the couple portraits I like to take you away from the action just for a little breather. It's ironic that it's your wedding day, but you'll be surprised that you don't actually spend much time together. So this is a great opportunity to have a cuddle and catch up. 

Don't worry I don't leave all the hard work up to you guys. Being an experienced natural Kent wedding photographer I always have a scout around the venue to seek where the best light is and what features we can include. If there are any certain places you would like to be photographed, then you can always let me know at our pre-wedding consultation.

I would never make you do anything you don't feel comfortable with. I've had experience with soppy couples, but others are lucky enough to sit on the same sofa. All couples are different and this is why our pre-wedding consultation is so important as it allows me to get to know you as a couple.

'We chose Charlene as our photographer for our wedding in September and WOW. Charlene went above and beyond! We were so impressed, the lead up to our wedding her communication was amazing, it was so nice to get to know her, so that on the big day we felt so comfortable! She knows exactly what she’s doing, we are not massive fans of having our pictures taken but she gave us guidance and took as many natural photos as possible and they came out unbelievable. Everyone has complimented the pictures! Not only is her work brilliant but she’s a lovely person at the same time.'

Your personal love journey


Some couples become a little shy in front of the camera, so pre-wedding sessions are a great way to break the ice and feel a little more comfortable for the big day. They give you an idea of what to expect and also gives me a chance to know how you act as a couple.

Kent Engagement photography/pre-wedding photoshoots are a great way of documenting your journey to becoming husband and wife.

If you book your Medway wedding photography package with me, a pre-wedding/engagement session is included in the package. If you haven't set a date yet or decided on a venue not to worry I do offer a separate package for engagement/couple sessions.

Being a Kent engagement photographer in Rochester, sessions can take place in a place of your choice. If you don't have a particular place in mind I can suggest quite a few beautiful idyllic settings.
