My name is Charlie Lyle, and I've been photographing weddings part-time for six years. I was married in 2003 (my wife now assists me), and the process of looking for a wedding photographer gave me the inspiration to become one myself.

I started out doing newpaper photography in high school and college, which gives me a more photojournalistic outlook to weddings, but I still see a need for formal and/or posed photographs. Although a wedding photographer primarily captures the events of the day as they unfold, I think we also need to create attractive images through direction and posing when needed.

During the wedding day I try to keep a low profile, unless I need to organize a group photo. I try to be accomodating, and usually encourage the parents to grab me if there's a particular photo they're looking for.

I'm listed with these wedding websites:
