Couldn't be happier!

We hired Chuck because we really loved his style and his personality. He went above and beyond in the planning process, especially with trying to help us find someone to livestream and other vendors we still needed, and helping us refine the timeline of the day.
We enjoyed going for our engagement photoshoot, and the pictures we got back were outstanding. Neither of us like photos of ourselves normally, but we both loved these ones, as did our family and friends. Chuck was really easy to talk with, so we had a lot of fun and jokes while we walked around for the photos. The wedding day was the same great mix of getting things done while staying out of the way, but still having great conversations with him and his second shooter when we went to them. We were thrilled with how much they seemed to capture, and are happily awaiting our photos.
Chuck thank you again, and a million times over, for being so fun and helping us feel good in front of the camera. We really enjoyed having you capture our special day!

You Must Hire Chuck!

Words cannot describe how thrilled we were to have Chuck as our photographer for our wedding. We chose Chuck because of the full suite of services he provides: engagement photos, wedding photos, and photo booth. Chuck is also immaculate in his professionalism and his process is refined and easy to follow. You always know what's coming next! The online gallery is beautifully organized and functional. Most of all, Chuck and Brea were super fun to work with and embraced our themed engagement shoot by also getting into the ocean with us! And one cannot forget the quality of the images we received are out of this world! Thanks again Chuck :)

Chuck and his assistant we're amazing!!! They captured moments I didn't even remember happening. The photos were gorgeous and unique. The location he choose for us was incredible. It was a freezing cold November day and they went to every extreme to capture beautiful memories. I would highly, Highly recommend Etched Productions and have to many of my friends. I would love to use them again in the future for other important life events!!

We used Chuck for our wedding photos and loved his pictures so much we came back for a maternity session. I had first seen his pictures a few years before and had said whenever I get married, I need him to do the pictures! Chuck was so professional and even helped us figure out how to organize the timing for our wedding day. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Professional, creative, phenomenal

Chuck with Etched Productions is amazing. My husband and I had never had professional photos done before and hired Chuck based on the incredible photos on his website, and boy did we luck out. He is incredibly professional and even more creative. For our engagement session, he made us feel absolutely comfortable around him and in front of the camera and the photos were out of this world. This made us even more excited for the wedding day. When the day came along, my father in law had a medical emergency and ended up unable to attend the wedding. Chuck was accommodating and flexible with the already planned itinerary and even made the hour drive to the hospital to ensure we had pictures with the whole family. All of my guests raved about how funny and talented he was and I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have chosen Chuck to photograph our special day. Although the grooms dad wasn’t there, I feel like Chuck was able to capture all the special moments and emotions and our dad will be able to relive the wedding through pictures for many years to come, and so will the rest of us. We will certainly be contacting Etched Productions and Chuck for all our future photography needs and we highly recommend him to all our friends and family.

Amazing Experience!

My husband and I had an amazing experience with Chuck as the photographer for our September wedding. The amazing experience started in the months leading up to the wedding, Chuck was on top of communicating and planning with us! I loved how organized and detail oriented he was throughout the months leading up to the wedding with regular check-ins, questionnaires and tips to ensure our day went as planned. Chuck and his assistant did an amazing job the day of the wedding, they made us feel so comfortable and kept up a great energy all day. I was blown away when we saw the final pictures - they were more beautiful than I could have ever expected. I would highly recommend Chuck!

Chuck photographed our engagement shoot and our wedding this past August and I can't say enough great things about him! Chuck was so organized, involved, and approachable throughout the entire wedding planning process. Photography was one of the things I didn't have to worry about during the planning of our wedding. He touched base with us at regular intervals leading up to the wedding, provided us with planning tips and helped us plan out the timeline of the day. My husband and I didn't have any specific photos we wanted for day, we essentially left it in the hands of Chuck and he did not disappoint! He kept our energy up during the day and made everyone in the wedding party and our guests feel comfortable in front of the camera. The variety of photos, the editing, the intimate moments to the fantastic group shots, everything was above and beyond what we could have ever expected! My husband and I as well as our entire wedding party would highly recommend Etched Productions for your wedding!!

Chuck is a very tallented photographer, and a fun person to work with. He captured our wedding experience perfectly and creatively. His calm energy was very much appreciated by myself (the bride) during a very nerve wracking day! I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

WE contacted Chuck on a super short notice, but he was very responsive and helpful. He followed up and asked all the right questions. He made sure to accommodate our requests.
We are pretty camera shy people, but he made us forget the camera was even there. He knows how to direct you so he can get the best shots.
He did a great job translating our vision into the final product. I am so happy with the photos. I know I will treasure them for years to come.
Thank you, Chuck!
