About Flash Charlie Wedding Photography
By Mark Buckley
I’m a Cotswold vintage wedding photographer, available for bookings throughout the south west, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Oxford, Cirencester and the UK. Photography is my passion, I love photographing occasions and capturing those timeless moments so they can be cherished forever. Using a unique, relaxed journalistic style of photography I will narrate your wedding story through images. Photographs are an amazing medium, they remind us of funny, exciting or amazing moments, your wedding day will full of these moments from start to finish, my passion and inspiration is capturing these moments to tell a story. I take pictures that show the mood of the occasion, by photographing the little details that make your day special and capturing the natural chemistry between the bride, groom and your family.
Gloucestershire Reportage Photography
My approach to photography is to tell a story, linking together all the small and large elements of your big day. Using a mix of different styles and influenced by vintage film and analogue photography I feel my style captures timeless moments and stories. The story of a wedding is centred around the bride and groom, but there are many other moments and details that occur during the day. Seeing all these moments, emotions and details help to build the bigger picture and tell the story of the entire wedding.
Please look through my work to see my approach to naturally capturing weddings and engagements.
Is film photography is dead? No. Film photography is alive and growing! Using film to photograph certain aspects of your wedding day allows me to capture photographs that can’t be achieved on digital cameras. Film photography offers much more depth, colour and character than current digital photography, giving you amazing photographs. My digital photography takes a huge inspiration from film, this also gives my digital images a unique vintage look and feel, it also means that my style transcends across both mediums and gives you an amazing collection of images.
My photography uses a unique professional mix of both film and digital photography to ensure you get the most beautiful pictures. I use both professional film cameras (Nikon, Pentax), professional Nikon digital cameras and professional film from Kodak and Fuji.
