quick facts about me


I was born 3 months early (I couldn't wait haha.) I'm a firm believer in God’s miracles and the power of a families love to get through all things. I’m a girl mom of two beautiful curly haired firecrackers who push me to achieve greatness in all that I do.

I love getting lost in a good book and family trips to new places. I'm a sucker for Romantic Movies like The Notebook, Titanic, and The Fault In Our Stars. I was given my first camera in middle school (a small Canon Powershot) by my dad and it sparked my love of photography. I can't wait to meet you it would be an honor to photograph your special day.

I'm Charmaine, proud mama of 2 crazy girls, with a slight addiction of sweets. Family and Weddings are the pasta to my breadsticks.

So nice to meet you!

I believe love conquers all.

quick facts about me

As a little girl who used to watch TLC'S " A Wedding Story" in the 90's (yes I'm a 90's gal) my love for weddings has held a special place in my heart before I even knew it. There's just something special about two people coming together for friends and family to celebrate their love. So congratulations to you on this exciting journey of being engaged and preparing for your beautiful marriage.

my Passion

Planning a wedding in New York? I'm your gal as I love to travel outside of Florida bringing my camera along to always photograph special moments. I love the fast pace lifestyle and adventure city life brings but also find comfort in the scenic beauty found only in the countrysides. 

 My travel bucket list includes the Maldives, Italy, Aspen Colorado, and Spain just to name a few.

Water. Yes nothing beats H2O. Being a mom to a young little one I am limited on indulging in special happy hour drinks but when I did I loved fine sweet wines like Moscatos or Rieslings. My favorite Starbucks drink is also a Marble Mocha Frappuccino.
