Prior to moving to Austin, I won the award for Best Wedding Photographer in Boston a couple of times…


What my clients are saying…


Maya and Michael

“Simply stated, Michael's work is unbelievable! His ability to capture emotions and moments is second to none. Looking back at our wedding photos there are so many stunning ones to pick from, but more importantly he captured the love and joy we felt on that day perfectly. Our photos were unique to us, reflecting our personalities, our love, and our wedding. They were far from simple stock wedding photos. They captured a moment in time we look forward to reliving through the photos!”



“Michael was probably my most helpful vendor during this entire process. We met with him so early in our process that he was able to give us advice on other vendors to use! Michael's pictures speak for themselves; they are gorgeous and sharp! He has such an eye for capturing beautiful moments. We loved our engagement photos and we are so excited to see our wedding photos as well! During our wedding day, Michael was such a calming presence for me. He was with us from the very start of the day to the very end, and it was awesome to have someone fun and patient to be with us on such an important day in our lives. Thank you, Michael!”



“When my husband and I were looking for a wedding photographer, we were very particular. We both have backgrounds in visual arts and photography and didn't want to end up with cookie-cutter, cliche photos, and we certainly did not! Michael J Charles was not only down to earth, friendly & funny, but also extremely professional. His style of shooting was very artistic and everything looked like it was straight out of a magazine. The images were extraordinary. In addition, he did not miss a single shot. The wedding day flies by, but when we reviewed the pictures it felt like we got to relive the whole thing. I don't even remember seeing him through most of the ceremony and the reception, but then saw the photos and realized that he was there capturing every single moment. He was very discrete. The photos came out so beautiful that I wish I could create more events just so we could hire him again. If I could give any advice to future couples, I would say make sure you hire a very talented photographer to capture your day, and Michael J Charles will capture it like no other!!! He has a true gift.”
