Hayden Charles Photography

With a keen eye for capturing that perfect 'moment', Hayden Charles has been behind the lens for ten years. Turning professional 5 years ago, Hayden has capitalised on the experience he gained as an assistant to his father, also an accomplished photographer. Says Hayden: “I enjoy the technical aspects of setting up and taking constructed shots ie in portraiture, but what I really love is capturing those beautifully honest moments people show you when they don't know they're being snapped.”

Bringing both sides of this photography 'coin' together makes Hayden perfect for Wedding assignments. He produces fantastic portraits post-ceremony, but fills a weddings portfolio with many heart-warming shots of both bride and groom (and guests) in the romantic and intimate moments these special days naturally produce.

Weddings aren't his only forte though! With a large portfolio of event and product photography, Hayden's regular assignments include: Spring Racing Carnival (one of six official VRC photographers), Red Bull products & events, Australian Motocross, Monster Energy, Cariel Vodka, & Melbourne University.

In addition to freelancing for Bar Magazine and Beat Magazine, Hayden also holds the positions of staff photographer and photographic editor for St Kilda News.

*Please note, all wedding images are from actual weddings - not courses with hired models. I use Canon equipment and Elinchrom studio lighting.

"Hayden Charles covered our wedding photography in November 2012. We were all very impressed with his professionalism, punctuality and the way he listened to our ideas when we voiced what we were trying to achieve on the day. His artistic approach and detailed shots have resulted in a collection of images we will cherish forever. As a severely camera-shy bride, I especially appreciated the way he made me feel so comfortable on the day. Thank you Hayden! Rebecca & Abraham"
