She is currently deleting some of the images she’s being called out for. There are more than what is sourced below but I am too busy today to do it all. She habitually crops out watermarks and has used at least one stolen image for her header so this isn’t just “inspiration” for mini sessions or photo shoots (not that inspiration posts are ever ok – even with credit).
Her website is mostly her work with the WIX template images left in place so below is just Facebook sourced images.

I have received a ton of submissions this weekend but this one caught my eye due to denial being strong with this one. Please forgive me for not getting to all the submissions yet – weddings are in full swing and it’s a holiday weekend! I did a bit of digging on this one but will post more at a later time.

Added in pictures from the second website along with images from her Facebook before she started deleting. She’s commenting below stating that she had permission from the photographers and it was her second shooter that did it (yet they don’t have access to her websites).

Added links to other sites of hers, some of which still have stolen images on them.

For those of you that are as confused as I am as far of the excuses/stories and who the fuck this woman is, here’s a synopsis.
Charming Photos is ran by a woman named Aries Lanna Thompson. She claims that another person works with/for her named Natasha “Tasha” Elizabeth Wile. Tasha has yet to comment on Photo Stealers. Tasha’s business, Tasha’s Crochet Creations (which also had stolen product images), has the same phone number as Charming Photos, they claim to “share” the phone. The personal Facebook profile images also appear to be the same woman. Aries claims that her and Tasha use pen names and hide their real locations to protect themselves. Aries also used to work for J-Tron Productions and owned S&E Weddings.
Regarding the use of the stolen images, Aries claims that she had permission from the photographers and/or clients to use the images (further claims of this here, here and here). Photographers and clients have emailed me and also posted stating this is not the case.

Lots of stock images, lots of not stock images. Will only be posting the ones that aren’t stock in the gallery – you can figure out which few images are theirs (spoiler alert, it’s not hard to figure out). I don’t recommend stealing from ANYONE but definitely don’t steal from photographers that are local to you.

They’ve removed most of the stolen work from their website but the Facebook still has a lot of stolen images. I’m also adding in some of the stock images from their various places on the internet including on their business profile pages since the owner is claiming that it’s his “partner” that stole the images, all he did was use the images he was given. Too bad some stolen images are on the owner’s Facebook profile.

I don’t know that I have ever seen a photographer have so many images of themselves on their business Facebook Page. They’ve also had QUITE a lot of name changes. I don’t know if this is because they’ve been caught before or not though.
Before anyone asks, no, she was not a second shooter for the photographer that most of these images are stolen from.

I see this time and time again… a photographer using someone else’s images in a genre they are looking to expand into. Here we have a photographer who is looking to get into weddings and posted a few images from weddings she claims to have photographed in Florida. She didn’t.
