SECOND SHOOTING

SECOND SHOOTING SERVICES

I have been in secondary education for the past eighteen years as a teacher, Dean, and administrator. Beginning in the fall of 2018, I have decided to finally pursue photography full-time with this second iteration of Anerino Originals!

While working in education, I photographed weddings on a part time basis since 2010, first with my own studio and then as Tony Hoffer's first associate from 2012-2014. Since 2014, I've been partnered with my friend Katie Merkle in Baltimore. During this time, I have photographed approximately two hundred weddings. While I have not entered photography contests in nearly seven years, I am proud that I ranked sixth in the world among all Wedding Photojournalists Association members in 2011. Most recently my personal images were published by Leica (Featured Here).

My ultimate goal when second shooting is doing WHATEVER it takes to give your client an amazing experience.

I am comfortable and confident working independently or as directed in any setting. While my strength is documentary photography, I am fully capable of posing and directing couples toward optimal lighting and posing. I also enjoy using off camera flash when appropriate. I thoroughly enjoy collaborating with other photographers in order to provide couples with photographs they will cherish forever! My ultimate goal when second shooting is doing WHATEVER it takes to give your client an amazing experience.


TESTIMONIALS FROM PRIMARY PHOTOGRAPHERS

"We worked with Chuck for quite a few years. On top of taking great photos, he was always super responsible and great with clients. People really love his calm but fun loving demeanor. At the same time he's incredibly thoughtful about the way he works. He’s a great photographer and very professional as a client-facing shooter. We never had any concerns with him representing our brand." Tony Hoffer

"Words can’t even begin to describe what an amazing photographer (and person) Chuck is. He is hands down one of the best photojournalists that I’ve ever seen or worked with. When Chuck is my second shooter, I can be totally relaxed because I know that he will thoroughly capture everything wherever I am not. In addition to being a great photographer, Chuck is a great person who keeps everyone laughing and smiling throughout even the longest of wedding days. My couples can’t stop raving about how much they enjoyed having Chuck at their weddings. If you’re looking for a second shooter, your search is officially over because I really can’t think of anyone better than Chuck." Scott Josuweit

"One of the reasons Chuck gets such phenomenal candids is because he becomes part of the family. He’s got such a gift at putting people at ease with his personality that they don’t even realize he’s taking real and raw photos of them. He’s invaluable as a right hand man because he gets unique photos of those real moments that my clients cherish the most." Tom Harmon

"Having Chuck standing next to me shooting as though he was a primary (which he is) has always given me the confidence to know that together we're going to deliver images that my clients will cherish for a lifetime. Chuck's ability to see three dimensionally allows him to move beyond the obvious shot and dig in deeper for a shot that will without fail evoke emotions the clients are always moved by. It's rare that I get the chance to work with him these days, but that's a credit to his otherworldly talents as not simply a photographer, but a moment maker." Jeff Moiser
