ABOUT JOHN CHARLTON
“Couples trust me to capture the most important events of their lives. I want them to enjoy being photographed and have photographs that last a lifetime and be something that they treasure”
I’m John and I am a wedding photographer based in Birmingham that photographs couples in love, and families – capturing those moments so that they last a life time. I’m from Birmingham but travel across the West Midlands and the UK to photograph my clients beautiful weddings, their families and their children. I’ve photographed Nobel Prize winners, heads of state, CEOs as well as high profile celebrities – so I understand how important to be discrete, decisive and more importantly, photographs that tell a story.
My clients choose me because of my laid back approach to portrait and wedding photograph which captures natural expressions and emotion on one of the most important days of their lives. I have photographed many incredible weddings at home and abroad and am a preferred supplier at Fazeley Studios, where my office is based.
My work is tailored to each couple as no two weddings are the same. 95% of my clients say that they hate having their photograph taken – but they love my approach to wedding photography which gives natural, emotional photographs which capture every detail of their wedding day.
Wedding photography for me started when I was asked to photograph a wedding as a present for some friends who were getting married – and whilst it was slightly daunting, I loved it. I trained for two years assisting other wedding photographers and 7 years on have shot hundreds of weddings all over the UK.
My passion is and always has been photographing people and I’m convinced you can only do this successfully if you enjoy making connections and building relationships. It matters to me. I want to give you something individual and personal by taking the time to know a little.
We’ve been looking through our wedding photos a year and half on and just wanted to thank you one more time for how wonderful your work was and how well you captured the day
