“My company recently hired Chuck to take portraits of our 30 employees. He was friendly, easy to work with, and delivered a set of beautifully lit photos that perfectly captured the mood we were going for. Highly recommend.”
“I needed to get a headshot for my LinkedIn profile. My budget was limited (hence the word budget) and CJ Photo seemed to fit the bill. … My experience with CJ was terrific. Chuck is a solid photographer and his assistant, Melissa was a great first face who made me feel welcome. The greatest part of my experience was that I was able to look at every shot before making my decision of which image I wanted. There was no pressure, but Chuck and Melissa’s suggestions were thoughtful. I would use CJ again and recommend them to anyone looking for a low pressure experience with good value.”
“Chuck took some head shots for me at a Thumbtack connect event. They turned out great and now I am using them for all of my professional online profiles. Thanks!”

“Chuck really takes his time on his craft making my head shoots look great.”
“Very professional. Chuck was insightful and knew exactly how to get the most out of a photo. His ability to take time and assess what the client needs is remarkable. I’m thankful for his service and for conversation.”
“Chuck is great! I started my career as a US Navy photographer, and I specialized in portraiture. Chuck really knows how to get the best out of someone, and I couldn’t have done better myself.”
“Chuck was an awesome headshot/photo booth pro. He nailed every part of the event, was wonderful to work with. He made sure he was fully prepared before the event and checked in with me throughout to make sure I was satisfied with his services. A+ !”
Your Photographer - Chuck Sires
“Jack of All, Photographer of Some, Friend to Many”
Photography for me is not just about capturing your best moments – it is a lifestyle. As a photographer, I get to work in a new office setting every day, meet interesting people at important moments of their professional and personal lives, and help put an image to a memory.
Photography is all about capturing light, and the tools at a photographer͛s disposal used to shape that light can make or break an amazing photo opportunity. My background in Mechanical Engineering allows me to walk into a room and understand how to work with the lighting (or lack thereof) to showcase the subject in its most flattering way. But, while I have a top-notch technical understanding of the camera and how to use it, what I enjoy most is sharing powerful experiences with others and interacting with participants.
My primary services include events, professional headshots, real estate photography & aerial photography & videography, and the occasional wedding for a range of commercial, non-profit and private clients. Be sure to click on my specialty pages to learn more about each service and associated rates. I look forward to working with you!
