I believe a wedding represents a wondrous personal journey, revealing extraordinary moments of unparalleled joy, intimacy, and exquisite beauty in its expression of love and "take your breath away" emotion.
It's a story I capture in photographs and make uniquely yours, — passionate, private, poignant —vastly more than the sum of the day's events… it's what I love to do.
As an internationally recognized photojournalist, documentary and fine art photographer, I approach your wedding with experience and insight refined in diverse cultures.
My relaxed style and distinctive vision reflects a sensitive, "feeling of the moment" closeness with my subject; a quiet, unobtrusiveness which allows me to capture your story discretely, perceptively and artfully as it unfolds. You will experience the joy of living that exquisite day — not posing for it. You'll possess a collection of timeless images of the highest quality, that will enable you, your family, and friends to relive its thrill and romance, now preserved as lifelong memories.
Whether you're planning a traditional or 'free spirited' wedding, my photographs will capture the true essence of your momentous day, with an expertise ideally suited for the discerning couple who appreciates the art of fine photography.
To Chuck Fishman:I just looked at the photos from my daughter’s wedding and I am overwhelmed by the beauty, the variety, the number of photos taken and how wonderful everyone looks. The candid shots of the preparation of the bride and groom are like a story being told in photos. You have the knack of capturing the magic of the moment and reflecting the excitement, anticipation and joy of the bride and the bridal party. At no time were you intrusive or did you tell people what to do. You waited for the right moment to unfold and then you took the photo.
There are so many artistic and truly extraordinary photos that I don’t know how I ever will be able to select just some for an album! I can’t stop looking at them – they help me relive the entire experience. Even my friends were brought to tears when they saw the photos.
Your background as an award-winning photo journalist is so evident in the finished product. These are not just dry, posed, artificial shots (like the average “wedding photographer”); this is a pictorial journey that is alive, that brings forth emotion and will bring our family so much joy for years to come.
I can’t thank you enough for your extraordinary efforts.
Shira and Gavriel are exhilerated with your professional expertise. Jose and I, both as parents and doting grandparents will cherish these stunning photograhs for many years.
Your warmth, professionalism, and extreme patience, made this experience an absolute pleasure.
Thanks for capturing the most meaningful moments, and bringing back old world eloquence to
Chuck's style is very journalistic and artistic. We absolutely loved our photos. He understood the whole process of a frum wedding, and brought in something different from the generic wedding photographer. His background in non-wedding photography gives him an eye for moments that others might not notice or capture. If you are looking for just basic photos of the family standing and smiling, you can go with anyone. If you are looking for someone who truly captures the emotional candid moments of the wedding, go with Chuck. He's so easy to work with, so amendable to working with the family and making everyone happy. We loved Chuck and we love our photos.
