Hi beauts, it’s Charlotte – your editorial wedding photographer, non-stop smiler and new biggest fan. Choosing a photographer for your wedding day is a big decision because you’re investing in more than just a set of images. Every photograph should be like a little ray of sunshine, bringing back all the giddy feelings. I want to take you behind the lens of Charlotte Nelson Photography to find out whether we’re a match made in heaven – you can expect a place full of warmth, confidence-giving positivity and oodles of fun, and if it gives you all the fuzzy feels then we might be perfect for each other!
If there’s one thing you should know about me it’s this… Ladies, as your editorial wedding photographer my focus is on you. My goal is to make you feel absolutely amazing and bring out your confidence to show the real you on your special day. Women are just so amazing, and it’s no secret that I put a lot of love and energy into the bridal shots to bring you into the spotlight in a way that feels fun and empowering, not scary. I’ll bounce into your wedding day ready to be your personal hype woman, and I’ll be with you every step of the way to help you feel incredible! Whether you’re expressing your sense of style through an outfit change (or two…!), strolling around your romantic venue or having your first dance, you’ll feel at ease with me as a familiar, welcoming face. We’ll create chic, playful images with that film star quality only your gorgeous self can bring. Why? Because you deserve it, beaut.
The ability to bring my confidence-giving energy to your wedding day starts right at the beginning of our partnership – I have such a soft spot for people and love the process of getting to know you and your love story. Building a warm, fun relationship with you as a couple means that on the day itself I have a knack for teasing out the most relaxed, playful versions of you for your photographs. Your big, wild love can sparkle behind my lens as I weave my way through your wedding as if I were a guest – I hope you’ll feel like you’ve got a trusted friend hanging out with you! Having me on your team is more than just having an editorial wedding photographer; from the day you book me, I’ll be on hand with advice and guidance for your whole planning journey. We can talk timelines, outfits (ooh, my fave), and decor…as well as bonding over plenty of giggles.
One of my favourite things about shooting your love story is embracing the real and the raw – the bits that make our stories unique. I love to include black and white images in your final selection; they never go out of style, and they’re endlessly expressive. You’ll also find a selection of photographs reflecting the lovely chaos of life – a little bit wild, grainy, slightly out of focus…in other words, gorgeously imperfect. During your day I’ll intuit the perfect moments and details to capture, bringing a laid-back, playful approach to highlighting your love at its most authentic. I’m there to grab those ‘wow’ moments, throwing my whole self into your day.
Capturing your greatest adventure in the most real way possible is what lights me up, but more important is bringing out your most confident and sparkly self while I’m at it. I’m based in the Harrogate and Yorkshire area but, for the right love story, invite me anywhere throughout the country. I’m also always up for taking my signature style further afield; I’ve recently been in Italy, Croatia and Ibiza shooting overseas adventures.
If you’re feeling all fizzy with excitement and want to dive in and have a chat, come and tell me about your plans via my contact form. I love nothing more than a good getting-to-know-you session, so I can’t wait to hear from you!
