Michael J Charles is an award winning photographer providing wedding, portrait and commercial photography for: Austin, Central Texas, Hill Country and beyond.



Michael went above and beyond what you would expect a photographer to do. From helping me put on my wedding veil, to learning the names and personalities of our family members, to knowing the ins and out of our church and wedding venue, he was a professional on every level.

Michael’s photos made me look/feel like the princess I always wanted to be on my wedding day. Thank you, Michael! Austin is lucky to have you.

Hi y’all, I’m Michael - I’ve been documenting weddings full time since 2004 and absolutely LOVE MY JOB! Just two years after jumping in full time, I won the award for Best Wedding Photographer by the people/my clients. This helped validate my chosen career path in serving others through my passion. I believe the client experience is just as important as the images delivered. I got my start in the Northeast as a Boston wedding photographer, and now serve Hill Country (and beyond) as an Austin wedding photographer. With every wedding I document, I do my very best to learn each and everyone’s name in the wedding party - your dearest and closest friends - after all, weddings are all about connecting! Seriously though, this approach enables me to be present and a part of this wonderful experience. I love the quiet candid moments and enjoy taking the reins when it comes to directing family formals. I geek-out on lighting but also love natural light. It all comes down to you and what you’re looking for - I’d love to learn more about your vision and plans for your wedding day and I’m here to help answer any questions. Thank you for stopping by!

Of all the decisions that went into planning our wedding, hiring Michael was the best choice we made.
