Hello and thanks for visiting my website. My name is Chuck Hocker. I love music, wine, traveling the world and taking pictures of modern brides with flair. I have traveled to 18 countries; fell in love with Italy and Greece along the way, and during my travels I have come to realize that I am lucky enough to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. That doesn't mean I have stopped traveling. I like to think I am a resident of the world and whether I am traveling somewhere for a vacation or to shoot a wedding I get excited for each adventure.

I was born and raised on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, minus a stay on the mainland to attend The Vancouver Film School. This is where I developed my eye for taking pictures of people and lighting. I am romantic and passionate about life and I like to think it is reflected in all the photos I take - both personal and professional.

In the past 8 years I have shot over 100 weddings, and I am amazed at how it never gets repetitive. I always enjoy forming new relationships with new couples that last beyond the wedding day. Despite my relaxed approach and personality, I am not traditional. I will not ask the bride and groom to stand next to a gazebo, turn to the camera and smile. This is boring. I will capture the ceremony and reception as naturally as possible with my artistic interpretation, but you won't even notice I am there. After you've said, "I do" and sealed it with a kiss, this is when we get to have fun. During this time, we will work together to create romantic moments between the two of you that will get captured forever. These memories will not only become a part of your legacy, but also show your family and friends how unique you truly are.

Thanks again for visiting my site. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
