Charleton’s likability has made him an easy choice among couples to work with for their day, and it’s no wonder he continues to receive exemplary ratings and referrals from couples, vendors and venues. As an adventure wedding photographer, Charleton even travels to the highest mountains. He recently made his ascent towards Mount Everest base camp in 2015 to document the first wedding couple in a wedding dress and suit when the Nepal earthquake struck killing thousands and turning everyone off the mountain, including his team. But that didn’t stop him from returning and pursuing his dream. In March 2017, he took his second attempt and executed what he originally set out to accomplish, and became the first wedding photographer to capture a wedding hiking up to base camp, with the first couple wearing a wedding gown and tux in below freezing temperatures. While Charleton travels, he spends much of his time photographing near his small town home in northern California with his wife of eighteen years and three daughters. Charleton photographs a maximum of forty weddings a year and is available for travel.  He recently was invited to speak for Nikon at WPPI in the Las Vegas Convention Center, and also speaks at photography conferences and conventions across the U.S.
