Always happy to collaborate on a custom package that fits your budget.


I’m Char, Charlotte or my personal favorite—Gnarlotte. I’m a Designer, Creative Director and Photographer in the Pacific Northwest and I’ll respond to she, her or dude. In my career, I’ve designed editorial layouts, art directed magazines, created award-winning posters and covers, and churned out captivating marketing suites. I believe wedding creative is so much more than just an invitation—it's an immersive creative experience that brings your love for each other to life, that's why I consider myself a Wedding Creative Director. I believe working with one creative instead of several helps create a more authentic and cohesive body of work—from engagement photos to Save the Dates, through invitation suites, to the Big Day items like programs, menus, and signage, and photography. Working with me is special because I consider my clients friends—whether it’s only for the duration of our project, or ‘til the end of time—our relationship will be approachable and enjoyable. I value authenticity above everything else: my style is documentary and editorial, which means more of you and your raw emotion in the creative suite and/or the photos I capture of you.

Being a creative is who I am, it’s why you won’t see a separation of me and my brand. When I’m not designing, I’m a leader on snow: teaching beginners and training seasoned instructors; I’m personable, candid and funny; I’m a music lover, an outdoors-person, a travel enthusiast; and a topical-playlist extraordinaire. When I'm not behind my computer, I'm traveling or adventuring with my camera in hand and my husband and dog by my side or on the other side of the lens. Or you can find me on snow, inspiring other snowboarders of all ages.
