CHARMI PENA'S success as a wedding photographer specializing in Indian and Southeast Asian weddings stems from her passion for preserving the intimacy of weddings, especially those of her own culture, and her desire to honor wedding traditions by capturing them with the respect they deserve. Her documentary approach, coupled with a tendency to break the rules and push the boundaries, has not only lead to top industry awards, but also to a decade of happy clients and recognition in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Maharani Weddings, South Asian Bride and Moment Junkie.

An educator and industry leader, Charmi has graced the stages of conferences including Mystic Seminars, WPPI and more. She’s also been featured on CreativeLive's SLR Lounge where she's shared insights for capturing emotion and connection on a wedding day. Her one-day Momentum Workshop gives photographers the tools they need to fuel their businesses through referrals, and she offers one-on-one consulting for overhauling websites and portfolios to keep prospective clients engaged and to help in creating healthy client relationships.

Charmi is also as well known for her advocacy for women’s equality and social justice as she is for her skill as a photographer.
