Words can not explain how happy and thankful I am for CM Photography, Charles Merry. We got married on April 6th and he did our wedding and my bridal session. When planning a wedding in Charleston you have a huge selection to choose from when it comes to your photography. I knew he stood out from the very beginning. When I first contacted him about his services, instead of just sending me an email with prices and a link to his website (like so many others), he actually asked questions about the groom and I. He wanted to get to know us and make sure this whole experience was personal. That's really what you're looking for in a photographer isn't it? Someone who can capture those personal moments on your most important day. I have never had any professional photography taken of me before, so I was extremely nervous about my bridal session! Charles made me feel so at ease and comfortable - which is a huge task when you're in the streets infront of the entire city! All I can say is that the pictures from my bridal session are timeless. I have posted them on the bridal forums I participate in and the positive feedback was outstanding. I think the most positive feedback I received was, your great great grandchildren will still be looking at this picture 150 years from now. That is exactly what you want to hear, I am so happy with the bridal/wedding pictures! I can go on forever but I am so excited to write this review today. I hope every bride gets to have the same experience I have, after all the crazyness of the wedding the pictures are what you have left. I have beautiful pictures and memories because of Charles, Thank you!
Chuck did an amazing job with all of my photos. For the engagement session he came up with ideas that were fun and amazing. Same with the bridal shoot. He is funny and likes to have fun with his clients. He responds fast and always answers all of your questions. I cant wait to see the rest of my wedding pictures. What I have seen already is more than I could every expect! He is fabulous!
Chuck is an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only is his work beautiful, he is a true professional. He did my bridal potraits and our wedding photography and we have just been blown away by his work. He makes himself available to all of his clients and is always quick to respond back to you. I would hands down recommend him to anyone getting married, engaged, having a baby, or that just wants some fabulous photo's taken. Thanks Chuck for everything, you made our wedding day great!
Charles Merry Photography helped capture all the special moments of our special day so that they will be memories for years and generations to come! Thank you for being so comforting in the last few moments before I walked down the aisle! Most importantly thanks for your wonderful creativity and capturing that beautiful picture of us in the rain! It along with many others will become treasured pieces that will remind us of our romantic moment being alone in the rain. Now I know what "picture perfect" truly is.... that is any special moment that Charles Merry is there to capture to ensure an everlasting memory. I can't say thank you enough!
CMPhotography was amazing to work with for my wedding in October of 2012 at Pepper Plantation in Awendaw, SC. From the day that my fiancé and I met with Charles, I knew we were going to have the best photographer for our special day. He came to the table with so much excitement and enthusiasm about our wedding that made me feel confident with our choice of photographer. It was comforting to be able to casually talk with him several times leading up to the wedding and genuinely feeling his eagerness to photograph such a huge life event of ours. Then, the day of the wedding came and he handled it with ease; he did not miss a beat! Lastly, our pictures were ready....my husband and I looked over the stunning pictures, reliving the day all over again. While looking at the pictures, we both said a few times "where was he when that was taken, or I didn't see that." Family and friends were in awe of the pictures and we have received multiple compliments on the creativity and uniqueness of our wedding photos. We were very pleased to work with Charles and CMPhotography; it was a joy to have him included as a part of our wedding day!
Chuck and his team were so amazing and made a wonderful photography team for our fall wedding in Charleston, SC. Chuck was excited and on point from the start of our working together, and was always quick to respond and answer any questions we had. Day-of, CM photography was happy, on time, and captured every moment throughout the day. The team had some great ideas for unique photos, and made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. CM photography is hands-down the team to choose! With thousands of options in Charleston, trust me that CM photography is the best investment for your dollar!!
Charles did our Engagement Pictures downtown Charleston , and those turned out beyond amazing , I couldn't have asked for better quality and different types of pictures . He also did my bridal portraits @ Mepkin Abbey in Moncks Corner and they were more than amazing . And finally Charles did our Wedding June 16th , 2012 at The Gatherings in Dorchester , SC . He did an absolutely amazing job . With his experience he was able to use the surroundings which was limited to get the pictures he needed. He fit right in with everyone and had such fun and lively ideas when doing the bridal party . I would definitely recommended him to any one looking for any type of event . You definitely wont be disappointed . & Thank you Charles for being so patient and understanding and capturing the most important days of our lives . Megan & Dock
Charles, has been the most amazing photographer hands down!! He was early to my venue to help me with any last minute things I needed and got the most amazing pictures of me getting ready and my dress and gals!! He literally went home that evening (my wedding ended at 10pm) and had already started on photos and I woke up to him having some photos ready for me!! He has posted preview pics for me almost every day and my heart stops every time I see one because they are gorgeous!! I have gotten sooo many compliments on his professionalism during the wedding and his keen sense to of capturing the most amazing and unique moments through out the whole thing!! I highly recommend him to any one looking for a photographer for not just wedding but ANYTHING!! He also did my maternity photos a few years back and my mothers wedding in 2012!! He is such a sweet and thoughtful man who 100% wants to capture the essence of the situation!! Charles Merry IS AMAZING!!! Thank you for all you did charles! We were truly blessed to have had him capture our special day!!
Words cannot describe how much we enjoyed working with Charles Merry of CM Photography. Not only is he talented, but he's professional yet fun, creative, organized, passionate, flexible, personable, trustworthy, and made us feel at ease on our special day. When we received our images, we relived every moment of our big day with tears of joy and huge smiles. Our images were original and breathtaking and felt Charles was the perfect photographer to help us relive a day that flew by entirely too fast. We look forward to working with him again in the near future
I'm so thankful I came across Charles. He captures emotion in unique ways and has a distinct eye for what will work! The best thing (besides the amazing photos) is that it was so easy. Every part of working with him was easy and fun. Especially the photo poses! For once having pictures done did not feel like work! If you are looking for pictures that are unique and beautiful I highly recommend Charles!
