• I’m Char Beck. I live in Seattle and I am passionate about people and living life to the max! Good coffee, tasty food, and spontaneous adventures… those are pretty great, too.

    So let’s break it down: I absolutely love people, and I love that my job allows me to show people just how great they are. Photos have the power to change how people see themselves. It brings me such joy to show someone a photo of themselves and watch their face light up as if to say “wait that’s ME!? I look awesome!”

    People who aren’t stressed behind the camera photograph the best, so I do my very best to give you a fun, stress-free experience that leaves you smiling.

    All in all, I take my job very seriously and always strive to provide couples with artfully crafted photos that will last a lifetime!

Ranveig + Magnus :: Oslo Wedding :: Norway :: Destination Wedding

I have marketing reps in (aka good friends) in Norway. They told their friends to fly me from Seattle to shoot their wedding, and they did! I absolutely LOVE traveling and meeting new people, so I knew this would be fun. We started first at the chapel, then to a classy hotel suite in Hotel Continental, then to the reception where we enjoyed Reindeer steak and fantastic wine. What a day to remember!

Matt + Kelby :: Hawaii Wedding :: Pali Highway :: Kailua Oahu Hawaii :: Destination Wedding

Matt and Kelby embody FUN. They decided to get married at an old Hawaiian mansion off of Pali Highway (on the island Oahu); the same place Kelby’s parents had gotten married a few decades before! What a gorgeous day and a fabulous setting! I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves; we had an incredible time!

Brittany + Jeff :: Seattle Wedding :: Woodland Park Zoo :: Bethany Community Church :: Seattle, WA :: Greenlake

I met Brittany while working at a church kiosk. She decided to get married and convinced me to shoot her wedding;)Brittany and Jeff got married at Bethany Community Church. Shortly before that, we enjoyed taking wedding party photos over at Greenlake Park. What a gorgeous day! Everyone was having a blast, and as I say, when people are having fun, they photograph well! The reception followed at the Woodland Park Zoo. Loved the carousel, no photos with the monkeys though..

Tyler + Jenny :: United States Naval Academy :: St. Anne’s Parish :: Annapolis, MD

Jenny and Tyler asked me to come to Annapolis to shoot their wedding. I’m close with Jenny’s extended family so I knew this wedding would be an absolute blast. The ceremony was in the gorgeous St. Anne’s Parish and they had the reception in the side of the gymnasium at the US Naval Academy. It snowed! This made it a little difficult for the gals getting photos outside, but they toughed it out and we got some great shots. Enjoy!

Scott + Maryclaire :: Center for Urban Horticulture :: Laurelhurst :: Seattle, WA

Scott and Maryclaire got married at the Center for Urban Horticulture, in Laurelhurst (Seattle), WA. This ceremony was outdoors on a perfect Seattle Summer day. One of the most outgoing bridal parties I’ve ever photographed! Details/design provided by the bride and her family/friends; well done!
