     "My husband and I were very nervous about hiring a photographer for our wedding, and we could not be more thrilled we hired Charlene.  She was fabulous to work with and we are in awe of all the amazing shots she gave us.

     When shopping for a photographer, my husband and I really wanted someone we could connect with, someone who would make us feel at ease in front of the camera.   We immediately felt comfortable with Charlene, as she is extremely friendly, relaxed, and down to earth.  We met with Charlene several times before our wedding to discuss logistics.  Charlene was very thorough!  She thought about many aspects that never would have crossed our minds.  Also, she was very understanding of our family dynamic.  She took detailed notes about which family members would take photos together, and which wouldn’t.   

     On our big day, Charlene was beyond fabulous.  First of all, she was punctual, kept us on schedule, and used our time efficiently.  At the same time, she was very flexible and accommodated us throughout the night.  Charlene was very friendly and fun, yet could direct my large family to get the shots she needed.  She took all of the artsy photos we asked her to take, and had plenty of great ideas about interesting and artistic shots.  She clearly put in a lot of effort to take unique and beautiful photos.  Throughout the night, she was clearly having lots of fun and was extremely enthusiastic.  She made it seem like we were doing her the favor, and not the other way around!

     Now that we’ve combed through the many, many photos she gave us, my husband and I are even more grateful for Charlene.  We love the angles she got, the light patterns, and the backgrounds.  Charlene has a great eye for which photos would look even more beautiful in black and white, and never before did I truly think that was possible.  Also, Charlene captured some wonderful moments on the dance floor, yet I don’t recall noticing her on the dance floor.

     As someone who casually enjoys photography, I always thought my personal photos would be enough to tell the story of our life.  Charlene and her photos far exceeded our expectations and hopes, and my husband and I will hire her again for sure."



"They look great!  Thank you for taking such fantastic photos.


"My son and I really enjoyed his photo session with you!  You made it painless for him - he usually hates to have his picture taken!"


"I wanted to say thank you again for being so amazing!!  My daughter had a great time and you were more than we could have asked for!!"


"Charlene took our family photo at Beech Hill Farm and we picked it up today. Thank you so much! It is the best picture I have of our family. I love it! I can't believe she got all 3 of my kids with genuine smiles looking at the camera at the same time!"


"Professional, humorous and an incredible eye. Having Charlene as our photographer for our wedding kept me at ease and calm during all of our photos. She made me laugh and all of my smiles are genuine. I can't wait to see all of my photos! You're amazing!!!"


"Had my daughters senior pictures taken and Charlene was wonderful,made my daughter and I feel very comfortable. Using Charlene again next year for my son's senior pictures."


"When my husband and I first got engaged, we weren't going to have a formal photographer...after getting a recommendation for Charlene Graham Photography from an acquaintance, we decided to check her out.  We were so impressed by what she had to offer...we met with her and signed the contract in the blink of an eye!  She is so organized that our final meeting was very brief, but still went over all the specifics, so we didn't have to stress at all.   On the day of our wedding, Charlene came with her daughter/ assistant, Christin.  They got all the pictures we wanted, and then some!  The creativity they had in taking pictures was amazing.  We would recommend Charlene Graham Photography to absolutely anyone in complete confidence."


"Charlene made it very easy to figure out, as well as helped me decide what I wanted.  She was excited every step of the way, was incredibly pro-active about meeting my needs, and keeping everything well-recorded, so she didn't need to ask anything twice.  The works themselves are breathtaking; we didn't know we could look that good ;)  Each piece is a work of art in and of itself, and I would recommend her in a heartbeat."


"Charlene did my wedding, and she was fantastic!  She listened to what I said, took amazing pictures, and was very personable.  I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer!  I will definitely be going back to her for further pictures in the future."


"Thanks for the gorgeous photos, Charlene! You somehow caught the stillness of a whirling day! We love them!


"My daughter and I had the BEST experience with Charlene for her senior portrait!  She wanted to have a little different setting for her portrait and Charlene worked with us to find the perfect spot.  Charlene connected with our daughter personally which put her to ease right away.  We were thrilled with the prompt turn around and selection of proofs.  Our finished portraits were gorgeous, especially the acrylic block!  Overall we had a very positive experience with Charlene Graham photography and found her to be pleasant, professional and reasonably priced."
