What can we say about Chaz? I should say, what can't we say about Chaz?! He was so awesome that we feel we've gained a friend throughout our wedding planning. Personality was a HUGE factor when we chose all our vendors and we knew Chaz was a perfect fit. His work has already gotten so many compliments from our family and friends and we couldn't be happier. He is so talented as well as business professional which is a perfect combination. He knows what he's doing and knows how to get the job done without sacrificing any of his artistic creativeness. I can't wait to see the work he did at our wedding, but from the turn out of our engagement shoot, I know I will LOVE every single photo. There were so many amazing shots already that I can't even imagine what the photoshopped ones will turn out like. Highly recommend him to everyone and I can't wait to hire him for our pregnant shoot, family photos, etc!!

No matter what I write about Chaz and his photography, our wedding photos speak for themselves. I've gotten so many comments about how my photographer did such an amazing job capturing the romance and beauty of our wedding... And not only are the pictures gorgeous, I believe even our personalities come through in them. I think most people planning a wedding have qualms about spending so much for a photographer, but I can positively say now that Chaz was worth every penny (and then some). Besides, his prices are comparable to many other photographers I researched before going with Chaz.

Chaz was a great pleasure to work with, before, at the wedding, and afterwards. He's very friendly, very easy-going, and very professional. He made connections with many people at the wedding too! He gives no time limit to his work with you on the big day, which I thought was great. He works with you as long as needed to get the photos he thinks will turn out the best. His turnaround on getting your slideshow done is so quick! I look at our slideshow almost everyday :D I really expect to work with Chaz again in the future for any other professional photography needs that we may have! Thanks, Chaz!
