"What an amazing deal for photos you will cherish for a lifetime! So many images to choose from, I wonder in awe how Chuck had the ability to get everything that happened on our special day, even the things I missed. For instance, the groomsmen's scheme to replace my wedding band for the ceremony with a mood ring and while that was going on he still caught great images of my nieces getting ready in the other end of the church. Artistically, I still don't know how our pictures truly look like a magical fairy tale, the colors are so vivid and edited so well. I could not have asked for more and on top of that Chuck is the most kind and professional photographer. I was not sure how things were going to work, planning everything from Vancouver, BC but I would not change a thing and I would recommend him to anyone in need of a photographer no matter what the occasion."

"Great value, great photography! We had an amazing experience with PhotoActive Photography! Chuck is great! All of our family & friends raved about how personable he was. My new husband and I knew from the first time we met him that he would be. His work is phenomenal as well. He is very talented & his prices are very reasonable. We didn't want to spend a fortune on photography & figured since we weren't paying and insane amount (as a lot of photographers do) that our photos would be mediocre. Boy were we wrong!!! Chuck did an amazing job & we have SO many great photos from our special day. I would highly recommend PhotoActive Photogrpahy for your wedding day!"

"Chuck Jackson is by far one of the BEST photographers available! He is very professional, and his services are TOP-NOTCH! I hired him for my 30th birthday celebration. As we all know, the 30th birthday is a milestone birthday that one always wants to remember. Keeping this in mind, I knew I had to find a photographer who would do me justice...and Chuck did just that! He was truly "on point" the entire evening! Chuck captured soooo many GREAT shots of my friends, family and me. There were nearly 1000 pictures! The images were so crisp and clear...and of the highest quality. Just as Archie mentioned, the pics were posted within a few days on the wedding website, and the photo DVD was provided to me within a week. I truly appreciate Chuck for helping to make my 30th birthday celebration a very memorable occasion for me! I recommend him wholeheartedly for any and all occasions. You will not be disappointed."

"I still can not believe that my husband and I were fortunate enough to have to have Chuck as our wedding photographer, especially with the limited budget that we were working with. From the beginning, Chuck was friendly and professional. His responses to my e-mails were always timely and he always provided advice to help me in planning the wedding without being intrusive in any way. On the day of the wedding, he was on time and not at all "in the way" as he took pictures of the preparation. I should mention that I had a VERY tight timeline on the day of the wedding, and Chuck still managed to get all of the pictures that I requested. He even managed to get outdoor pics of my groom and I before it started to rain. And oh the pictures!!! Before my husband and I returned from the honeymoon the teaser slideshow pictures were already up on the site. They completely blew me away!! I've seen a lot of pictures that were taken at the wedding, even those that were taken with professional cameras. However, none even come close to the pictures that Chuck got. He captured every detail, and I couldn't be happier that we chose him to photograph our wedding. He'll also be the photographer at my sister's wedding next month! lol"

"Chuck was a gem of a find! Being an overseas bride I had only the internet to rely on to find a photographer for my big day. Chuck's quote was not only reasonable but his friendly open and informative communication 'sold me'. I have not regretted that decision for one minute. He is extremely personable, very friendly and immediately puts you at your ease. My guests loved him and he took lots of photographs without us ever feeling 'imposed' upon which was key due to our small wedding. The photographs are amazing and I have never had so much positive feedback from friends and family with people telling me how artistic they are and that they are the best photographs they've ever seen. His attention to detail is faultless. I would recommend Chuck in a heartbeat and if anyone is getting married around the Tampa area I would really have to question why you would want to pick anyone else! xxx"
