Since 2011, Charles has been enjoying what he does best: to capture every important yet fleeting wedding and family moments the best he can, and let every collection of pictures tells their own unique stories of love and connection. Every glance, hug and kiss, every smile and the little things that contribute to the love stories between couples, families, and self.
11 years, 60 awards and 7 titles later, he continues to capture the most precious and timeless moments despite the ongoing challenges ahead.
