Charlie    Valarie

Hi! We are Charlie and Valarie! A fun energetic husband and wife team that loves serving future bride and grooms while providing a luxurious wedding  photography experience. 

One short trip to get a hair-cut led us on the current journey we are on and now currently reside in Charleston, South Carolina. Read about how we met here!

We got engaged in August of 2017 in the heart of New York City, Time Square. And like most of the future bride and grooms reading this, decided to get married right here in Charleston, South Carolina.

We are both suckers for romance and love meeting other young couples as they prepare for a few of their most exciting life events.

A Little About




Charlie met Valarie after her sister cut his hair at a Sport Clips and decided to introduce them!

Charlie is a Hopeless Romantic, but terrible at flirting.

Valarie ran track all the way through college. Now she runs Charlie...  

Charlie loves pineapple on pizza. Valarie does not. We order a lot of pepperoni pizza. 

Valarie is a primarily a school psychologist and is amazing with kids!

Valarie loves watching The Bachelor and The Bachelorette... Charlie actually loves it more... 

We own a little Maltese named Bella. She is somewhat like the Godfather and pretty much owns us.

Saying that Charlie went above and beyond for us doesn’t cut it. My fiancé and I found ourselves saying “really? He’s going to do that for us?” several times throughout working with him…The first day we were scheduled for pictures the forecast was showing torrential downpours, and I was panicked, but Charlie quickly eased my mind by providing alternatives, and ultimately assuring me that we’d get the shots no matter what it took. His positivity was contagious. His outlook on a rainy day: “I’ve always wanted to do a rainy-day shoot!

Charlie really got to know us and then tied that into his work making sure we had photos that reflected our own personalities and love. He was a complete pleasure to work with on one of the most nerve twisting days of my life.

Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our family session with Charlie. He kept our daughter (18 months) entertained and engaged with his amazing Mickey Mouse impersonation and was so fun to work with.

Such a wonderful experience!! My boyfriend and I never had professional pictures taken and it was not awkward at all with Charlie and his fiancée, Valarie. He was very accommodating and very flexible with my busy schedule. He also let me bring my pup and involved him in so many pictures which made our pictures that much better! 

Lisa Niswonger, 2018.

Charlie was amazing. His personality and his demeanor with our entire family made our experience so much fun!! And the photos are phenomenal!! 

Ryan Silverman, 2018.

 I can not express how much we enjoyed the engagement photography experience! Not only were the photos great, but Charlie went out of his way to make sure everything went according to plan. He even helped me coordinate with certain aspects since we were coming from out of town. We were very happy with everything and I would recommend his services to anyone!
