  • We met Cherlyn through a friend and we are so glad we got to work with her. Cherlyn is an amazing person and even better photographer. She was so easy to work with, was very responsive and worked with us when we had to change our wedding venue. We booked our engagement shoot, rehearsal dinner, wedding and photo booth with her. Her use of natural lighting is simply breath taking. Her photos came out absolutely perfect for all events. She was able to provide our photos is such a timely manner. When we sent out the pictures to our loved ones, they all commented how quickly we received the photos and how beautiful they all turned out! On the day of the wedding her team was great to work with. It was Cherlyn and Kari and both were so patient with our family and friends. We love Cherlyn and look forward to working with her for future milestone celebrations.

  • Cherlyn was amazing. She was so kind and professional and took the most gorgeous photos that looked real and candid, never staged or posed. Excellent for someone looking for more natural, low key but awesome wedding photography.

  • Loved working with Cherlyn! She was everything we wanted in a wedding photographer and more. She cared about capturing our wedding day but also about us enjoying our day. She helped us get some moments alone in the midst of all the crazy. We would have her again any day :)

    Hi Rebeca!! Thank you so much for your review! I was so honored that you chose me to capture your day and grateful to the kindness you and your family showed us. I remember having a deep & great convo with Ben's Dad - and I cherished his advice. It was also great to see a few familiar faces from past weddings too. Love & gratitude, Cherlyn

  • Cherlyn was a perfect choice for our San Francisco wedding! We live about 400 miles away, so planning was a little *extra* stressful. Cherlyn made us feel comfortable from the very first phone call. We flew up and met her for lunch, and I knew she was the photographer for us. I can’t stress enough how comfortable she made us feel. She was so quick to respond to all of my emails. I had my freak out moments, and Cherlyn's "Don't worry, I got this" confidence really saved me (multiple times). Day of, Cherlyn and her assistant Nikki met me at City Hall and helped coordinate with my husband so we wouldn't see each other before the first look photos. She and Nikki were so efficient that we ended up with enough time to get the family shots done before the ceremony. This left plenty of time post-ceremony to get TONS of beautiful shots all over City Hall. Somehow she managed to make it look like we were the only ones in the entire place! We had rented a trolley to take us and o... Read more

  • Absolutely nailed the pictures. Very aware of lighting, angles/places to be during the ceremony in order to capture those special moments, and a wonderful personality that easily blended into our wedding day. We couldn't be happier and couldn't ask for anything more. Absolutely top notch.

  • We found Cherlyn through a friend and could not have been more pleased and happy with the quality and artistry of the photos and communication we received. Cherlyn is incredibly talented, experienced and, above all, interested in learning about her couples and how to best capture their story. During each session, Cherlyn made it friendly and easy for us to take photos in a candid and relaxed fashion. She was also very quick in sending us the final photos, while also sharing sneak peeks with us ahead of time. We also loved that she partnered with Six & Ten photo booth and our guests loved having that at the wedding. We highly recommend booking with Cherlyn for your next wedding or photography event.

  • What can we say about Cherlyn? She did a perfect job capturing a perfect day. My wife and I got married six months ago, but we first started talking to Cherlyn about photographing our wedding well before that. From our very first meeting (at a bar- cool points for Cherlyn), she was attentive, kind, creative and did everything possible to align our photographs to our vision for the wedding. We met once or twice again leading up the big day to re-confirm details and every meeting was a breeze. On the actual wedding day, Cherlyn and her assistant Emma were flawless. They captured everything we wanted, took us around a variety of locations at our beautiful venue to take pictures, and got some great "golden hour" sunset shots. While we took lots of pictures, we never felt that we were being taken away from hanging out with friends and family. Cherlyn and Emma were pretty much always in the background, unnoticed, taking shots of our special day. If you're considering anybody else b... Read more

  • Cherlyn photographed my wedding this past October and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Not only did she take beautiful photos that I'm obsessed with, but she was so helpful throughout the day. She answered all my questions leading up to the day and helped me feel organized. It was like I was hanging out with a good friend who was also photographing my wedding! Win win! Thank you for being wonderful Cherlyn!

  • Cherlyn is a dream. Her communication is excellent throughout planning you never wait for a response. She did our engagement pictures, a budior shoot for me, wedding pics, and another session of portraits for my husband and I. Every single picture is magic. Cannot recommend her enough!

  • I was so lucky to meet Cherlyn at a wedding show in San Jose. I wanted to find a photographer who had shot before at my venue, and just my luck she was from Oakland and had previously shot at the Brazilian Room. I was impressed with Cherlyn's style from the very beginning. She is very easy going and accommodating. She shot our engagement, wedding and even post wedding photos. We had to reschedule our engagement photos and post wedding session due to weather issues. Cherlyn always made time due to my husband's busy work schedule. I was so impressed with how great our engagement photos turned out that we quickly hired her for the wedding. Cherlyn even went to check out the gardens near the venue to find some great shots to take photos with the wedding party. Unfortunately, the day of it poured prompting us to change the schedule and location. Her and Max still shot photos of us in the rain even though they got soaked! After the wedding, Cherlyn requested that we do another session... Read more

  • If you’re looking for a documentary/journalistic photographer for your wedding, Cherlyn is the one!! She’s super easy and fun to work with and professional all at the same time. With Cherlyn, I felt like I was hanging out with a friend on the day of which made me feel really comfortable, at ease and less stressed. Max, who was our 2nd photographer on the day of, was also really nice and easy to work with. Our photos turned out so beautiful. Just as we wanted, the emotions and happiness from the day were all captured and I know we’re going to love looking back on these years down the road. Can’t say enough good things about C. Wagner Photography. Really, thank you so much Cherlyn :)

  • We’re SO glad we had Cherlyn for our wedding photography. Seeing her online portfolio, we knew we liked her style, so the clincher was meeting her in person. She balanced professionalism with warmth and an easy-going attitude with the ability to take charge when needed. This was especially important to us so that we knew we were in good hands and could relax on our wedding day. After we made the easy decision to move forward with her, she remained diligently accessible and responsive. She even helped us find a great videographer at the last minute (Love in Transit Weddings!). From our first meeting to the engagement session to last minute questions to the big day to final photos, she was top-notch and delivered as promised. And those final photos, oh my--emotive candids and atmospheric bride-groom portraits to be treasured for years to come.

  • I was so pleased with our experience with Cherlyn and cannot recommend her enough. She's friendly, super easy to work with, professional - and a great photographer. At our first meeting she explained her style and showed us some of her work, which we liked a lot. For our engagement photos I was a little apprehensive because I'm not that comfortable in front of a camera (especially for a bunch of photos!), but Cherlyn helped me feel natural and it comes across in the end results. On the wedding day, we had already worked with her to create a timeline and a list of shots we wanted to make sure that she got. Cherlyn and Max started early; they each photographed us getting ready (at different locations). I really treasure the photos she got of me and my bridesmaids getting ready (she got a super cute one of my mom seeing me in my dress for the first time!). At the venue Cherlyn kept everything under control and took our family and bridal party portraits. I'm pretty silly, so she got a f... Read more

  • Where do we begin??? Cherlyn was absolutely amazing to work with. My wife and I were so lucky to connect with such a talented photographer. Cherlyn captured our style to a t in our engagement photos. She knew exactly where in Oakland (Jack London Square) would have every shot we wanted. We used one of the shots as our save the date. Cherlyn was very communicative, personable, and professional. She answered all our questions and made us feel at ease. She was able to connect with our day of coordinator and work out logistics without stressing us out one bit. I'd heard so many stories of crazy wedding venders and Cherlyn was awesome. One thing I really noticed was how calm she was while shooting our family shots. We had a ton of candids and she knew exactly how to direct my family and capture their good sides! We worked with her second shooter Max as well. The were both great and we felt assured that the day and night would be photographed brilliantly! After the wedding, Cherlyn was i... Read more

  • Cherlyn was wonderful, professional and approachable from the moment we met in person to review her style, our preferences, etc. Additionally, she helped us work within our budget. She had a can-do, go-with-the-flow, don't-worry-we've-got-this attitude right from the start. She helped me feel confident and had the perfect combination of both allowing magical wedding moments to happen and directing us when we needed directing. She went above and beyond on the day of. The shots she captured blew our minds. Cherlyn captured light, movement, emotion. We didn't have enough money to film our wedding, but the wedding shots feel as if they cross over into film-like level of graceful and emotional story-telling. Can't recommend her enough.
