  • While planning a destination wedding from Western New York, few vendors were more important to us to be able to capture our special Charleston day, than our choice in photographer. Our love was there, so the decor and other details were extras. However, we really wanted great photos captured to be able to frame, give to our loved ones as gifts and have those special moments to look back on with our future children.  We chose to divide and conquer when we weren't finding that one photographer that seemed to fit our vision. We both made inquiries separately during our lunch breaks in the same week and were going to come together to go over our findings that weekend. It was then that Charlie put two and two together after we had inquired about the same date and venue. He set up a Skype consultation, and we had a great conversation with both Charlie and Valarie. They left us with "we look forward to hearing from you after you talk it over."  After we hung up, we knew we had to book this... Read more

  • Charlie is absolutely hands-down the best photographer I have ever dealt with! He works so well with people and was especially kind with my fiancé and I. He knows just the right angles and just the right positioning in his photography as well as perfect timing of the right light needed in photos. It was nothing but a positive experience with Charlie and I highly recommend you to use him for your photos as well! He put all of our needs first before his own and it was overall an outstanding experience.

  • Planning a surprise engagement for my girlfriend at the time, as anyone can imagine, was extremely nerve wracking! Not to mention, I was planning all of this to happen in Charleston while I live in NJ. Charlie went out of his way to scope out possible locations for me at different times of the day, and set my mind at ease. My, now fiance, had no idea what was coming, and the outcome could not have been any better. Charlie was a pleasure to work with and the final product (photos) could not have come out better: the quality, his knowledge of different locations, natural lighting at different times of the day, beautiful backdrops, etc. If you are reading this, DO NOT LOOK ELSEWHERE. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

  • My fiancé and I are from Pittsburgh but wanted to get our engagement photos when we were vacationing in Charleston/Folly. An instagram search led to Charlie, and we are so thankful that it did. 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. We were torn between getting photos with the beautiful architecture in Charleston or on the beach at Folly. Charlie’s solution: “Let’s do both!” 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! Your pictures would look so cute with my clear umbrella!” You know when you were younge...

They made us feel at ease right away since this was our first time getting professional photos. They made us look flawless despite the heat index of 110 degrees! All our photos turned out better than we could have imagined! You will not find a better photographer in Charleston!! -Megan and Andrew

  • Charlie was absolutely incredible and accommodating! He worked so hard so I could pull off the best proposal! He even called businesses for me, and went out of his way to help me in a city that I had never been to before. The pictures turned out perfectly, and we got them back in a reasonable time! He was responsive and all-in-all, it was a great experience. I recommend him to anyone looking to capture their proposal!

  • Charlie and Val were PHENOMENAL to work with! They captured our engagement so perfectly and were so sweet and fun to be around! Charlie is creative and makes sure you look your best in each frame he captures! I seriously can’t say enough great things about them! It started to rain during our session, and Charlie was so sweet to get up early the next day to meet us to ensure we had the session of our dreams.. I could go on and on about how fantastic they are.. If you’re looking for the most incredible photos— you’ve found the right guy!

He felt like family and absolutely everyone and I mean EVERYONE who came in contact with him and his camera lens that day adored him! He captures genuine happiness and knows how to make sure you look your best doing it. :-) Even got my husband crying happy tears. Haha! We love Charlie and Valarie! Can’t recommend enough. Amazing work! We will cherish these photos forever.

  • If there's one thing to take away from this review, its: YOU MUST BOOK CHARLIE FOR YOUR WEDDING! And here's why... Where to begin! Charlie + Val were the absolute best. Planning a semi-destination wedding in Charleston from NYC can be slightly overwhelming..especially when it comes to choosing your vendors. Minutes after reaching out to Charlie, he called me. He & Val from our initial conversation were just so easy to talk to, helpful and informative- we immediately hit it off and clicked. I had already loved Charlie's style of photography so it was an added bonus that he was also super cool. We first met Charlie & Val for our engagement session almost 7 months before our wedding. Charlie was so energetic, goofy (Which you want from your photographer!) and open to any and all feedback in terms of locations, poses we felt comfortable with, etc. He didn't make us feel rushed, in fact, convinced us to continue our session in DT Charleston to capture golden hour, which we are so happy we d...

  • I wanted to surprise my bridesmaids with a photoshoot for my bachelorette party in downtown Charleston. I stumbled upon Charlie and am SO thrilled I did!! Our photoshoot with him was absolutely incredible and tons of fun. He is such a joy to be around- funny, kind, positive, upbeat, attentive and so genuine. Charlie did an awesome job at posing us and made sure to take us to every location we wanted to shoot at! He took his time and made us feel comfortable from the very start. Everything felt so natural and easy. We laughed and had fun with it the entire time!!! The photos turned out absolutely GORGEOUS- I really can’t get over how beautiful and timeless they all are and how truly talented he is!!! Charlie really went above and beyond to make our day special and to have lovely pictures to remember our trip by. I really appreciated his flexibility and willingness to make it a day to remember for me and my best friends. I cannot recommend Charlie enough for any of your life events- a... Read more

  • Charlie & his fiance, Valerie went above & beyond with our engagement shoot in Downtown Charleston! Charlie had so many great ideas for posing, was extremely professional & really just shines with his passion for photography. He made sure to give us all the instructions we needed to feel comfortable since this was our first professional shoot. I highly recommend them! They did such an awesome job, I can't stop looking at our pictures!

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Charlie Martin Photography! I hired him to photograph my bachelorette weekend in Charleston/Isle of Palms, and he was so responsive throughout the whole process. He made the day SO FUN and relaxing, and he was able to capture everything I wanted for the weekend. I am SO happy I decided to get the bachelorette weekend photographed with Charlie (and Valerie) as I will have these memories and photos with all of my best girlfriends (and bridesman) forever. I hope to hire Charlie again for more photography in the future. FIVE STARS!!

  • 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.

  • I was absolutely blown away with the pictures from the engagement session Charlie captured of my husband and I. He was able to direct both of us to capture those true feelings, emotions and laughs. Charlie was personable, professional and made the photoshoot fun; even for my husband who does not love being in front of the camera. It’s so important to have a photographer who wants to get the best possible photos for his customers, and that is Charlie! Trust me, if you want beautiful bright and airy engagement/ wedding photos, book him, you won’t regret it. Thank you Charlie, for our beautiful photos!
