Happy clients club
Throughout the 20 years of my career as a wedding photographer, I have been blessed with countless happy brides and grooms.
Thank you Chris for making our wedding day unforgettable. You have amazing talent and show it so effortlessly. You felt like a family member to us, made us laugh and made our day even more special and stress free. Heath and I will be coming to you in the future for all of our photography needs. We will drive all the way from Sacramento just to come to you- because you are SO worth it! Oh yeah and YOU ROCK!!!!!
Two words: Stunning photos. We’re very happy with how you captured the great moments of our wedding, and even happier that you were able to be a part of it in the first place. Cheers & Hugs.
Thank you so much for the professionalism and diligent, caring work at our wedding. You and your staff have winning personalities and clearly know your stuff.
We would like to thank you for our amazing pictures. They are even better than we had imagined. You captured all the love, beauty and fun of our special day. We cannot thank you enough!
The photos of our wedding looked incredible. We are very happy with our decision to go with CCIMAGES. The shooting was very professional and discreet. We didn’t have to worry about a thing on the wedding day. We got all of the pictures we were hoping for and many more. I’ve been telling people, ‘If you’re looking for a great wedding photographer with an awesome style for candid or posed pictures, then Chris is the guy to speak to.’ Thanks for the incredible memories we will cherish for years to come.
We were so confident from the beginning but the amazing quality of each picture surpassed our expectations. His talent defined the art of our precious event. We liked not only the poses but also the angle of sunlight in the images. This gave us astonishing pictures of ourselves we’d never seen. He captured the best moments that people normally miss or don’t realize. With the professional and friendly guidance in our group shot, we became more relaxed which brought natural facial expressions. He left a great impression with all our guests. We are very happy he captured the most important moment of our life and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Chris for your outstanding work.
My husband and I were married at the Hacienda in Santa Ana and I still look at my wedding pictures in amazement. Chris is great at what he does and you could not ask for anything more. Thank you Chris for capturing the day in its entire beauty.
We just wanted to thank CCIMAGES for taking such great pictures at our wedding. We are so excited and pleased with how our wedding pictures turned out. Chris was able to capture all the special moments that are important to us. Every time we look at the pictures, we will be able to relive our special day! He made me as well as others feel relaxed through out the entire day! I felt very confident in his ability to take such awesome pictures due to his creative and professional style. We will definitely keep CCIMAGES in mind the next time we need professional photos and would recommend him to anyone!!
We hired Chris for my parents 30th anniversary party and he totally exceeded our expectations. He was very professional both over the phone and in person. He did a great job of making everyone feel comfortable when taking their pictures and was very friendly. The pictures he took came out wonderfully and we will cherish them forever. Thanks again.
Chris Chavira photographed my grandmother’s 95th birthday and he captured some of the most exciting moments of this important occasion. Our guests loved his involved, but not intrusive, style of photography and the energy he brought. We loved working with Chris, are super pleased with his work, and would gladly recommend him to anyone hosting an event, be it a birthday, graduation, milestone anniversary or wedding. He was great and we have the photos to prove it.
My wife and I had twin boys in April, and we couldn’t wait to get professional portraits of our family done. The tough part was finding the right photographer… well, that AND finding the time to do anything outside of taking care of our sons. Chris Chavira was recommended to us by a friend, and so we took a look at his website. I would describe his photos as both modern and classic at the same time. We did a photo shoot at the beach. My wife and I are very happy with the photos. I highly recommend Chris Chavira Photography CCIMAGES.
We hired Chris for our son’s birthday party. The services we received were the best. He made everyone feel very comfortable in having their photo taken. Our guest actually thought he was a close friend or family member. The photos came out amazing. There were many great candid shots that he set up while he was working. I already recommended Chris to my family and friends. You will not be disappointed!
Wow, is all I can say. Chris exceeded our expectations! His professionalism, personal care and fun attitude made our day even more memorable. He was able to capture all the love and beauty that we felt on our big day. And now looking at the pictures, we’ll be able to look back with such emotion! The story he built within the pictures and our photo album will be cherished for many, many years to come. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone and we will definitely use CCIMAGES again in the future! Well done!
Chris and his team that he worked with were amazing! They are so professional, and definitely know what they are doing. Chris is such a personable guy, and makes sure to know what you want. I highly recommend him for wedding pictures. We just got our pictures back (very quick turn around) and they look awesome. I cannot wait to show them to my family and friends.
Fantastic shots, both posed and spontaneous. The composition of the photographs was consistently exceptional. We were concerned to find a photographer who would be unobtrusive in our small wedding, and who would record the event, capturing our friends and family. Chris was great, in this regard. He also shone during the posed pictures, working with family. (My uncle kept saying, “I love that guy!”) He is always professional and conscientious, from the initial interview to the delivery of the final product. I believe that we received a (very high-quality) electronic copy of every picture he took. We also chose, at the last minute, to add a video. I am glad we did it. It is nice to have. Overall, we are very satisfied with our experience and would definitely recommend CCIMAGES to our friends.
My husband and I are so HAPPY Chris was our wedding photographer. At the wedding, Chris thought up wonderful/artful shots capturing memories for my husband and I. AND he is great with children, he was able to get my little nieces and nephews look at the camera and smile. I’ve received so many compliments on the photographs from friends and family. He is also great with Mothers, Fathers and ‘in laws’, which is a dream come true for brides. Chris is a truly gifted, professional and gracious man. USE HIM for your wedding!
Working with Chris has been a great experience. I am so pleased with our beautiful engagement and wedding shots. Chris was not only an excellent photographer, he was also a great personality. He energized the wedding guests, and really included everyone.
I absolutely loved the photos Chris was able to capture on our wedding day! He really brought the special moments to life and every time I look at our pictures I feel like I am reliving the day! I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the album!!! I am so grateful for such amazing creativity and thought Chris used in putting it together! I never imagined the wedding album could be so beautiful, and it really brings out the story of our wedding day. Thank you, Chris!
Chris did an amazing job photographing our wedding. Our event was hosted in a very industrial area and Chris found places to photograph that I never would have imagined to be perfect for wedding pictures, but he did! The shots are beautiful. I received more compliments on the pictures than I can count! We enjoyed his style in directing us and he fit in perfectly with our family and friends and made the day very special. I felt like a princess and Chris really played on that and captured some great moments. We liked him so much that we are even going to have him shoot our head shots! Thank you Chris! After our head shots, you’ll be doing our baby shower.
Chris and his team were amazing! They were excited, involved, inspired, and artistic the ENTIRE day! Chris made me feel like a rock star; a Hollywood glam/silver screen Diva; an Indie girl. At no time was he in the way, and at no time did he miss any important moment. I was glad that he brought an assistant (I HIGHLY recommend this option) because it wasn’t until receiving the pictures did I see what the Guy’s Side was like! Chris is awesome! Not only did he capture the beauty of our venue, he captured second-by-second moments of love, happiness, and joy in all our guests! I can’t stop looking at the pictures and smiling. Chris has a real gift in capturing a moment without it looking staged or too ‘weddingingish.’ We were lucky and THRILLED to have Chris as our photographer! I highly recommend him as a wedding and any-other-event photographer. You will not be let down!

I believe that we received a (very high-quality) electronic copy of every picture he took. A few shots that would have been great were out of focus, which was disappointing, though I suspect that is to be expected, given how many pictures we have. We also chose, at the last minute, to add a video. I am glad we did it. It is nice to have. Overall, we are very satisfied with our experience and would definitely recommend CCIMAGES to our friends.
Chris shot our engagement shoot and wedding, and we could not be happier with how our pictures and wedding album turned out. He was very good at putting everyone at ease, so we got used to being in front of the camera and that helped the pictures turn out natural–not just of us, but of our family and friends too. We also got the pictures themselves very soon after the wedding. We feel we could not have picked a better photographer, thank you Chris!
Hiring Chris Chavira to be our wedding photographer was one of the best moves we made in the process. Every interaction with Chris was timely, professional and stress-free. He responded to my initial inquiry/e-mail the same day, we met the next and my then-fiancé and I left our appointment knowing we had found the right guy… after weeks of searching on the Web and being really disappointed. Every e-mail, phone call and meeting after that went just as smoothly. Chris’s pricing is incredibly reasonable considering the quality of the photos and his time/focus. I was blown away by the pictures and moments he so beautifully captured, and we didn’t even know he was around half the time! My husband and I could not have been happier with Chris and his team, and all our wedding guests commented on how personable he was. My parents actually hired him for their 40th anniversary party a month later. Chris is a gem!
Chris you are phenomenal. I love the photographs. They brought tears to my eyes! Thank you so much for all your hard work; both you and your assistant. I feel really fortunate that you were a part of our special day! You are great at your craft!
CCIMAGES was fabulous at our wedding. We had a small and very intimate wedding which was beautifully captured. I had seen Chris’s portfolio about 2 years before I started planing my wedding and fell in love with the images and stories captured. After looking at dozens of other photographer’s portfolios and websites, I finally found his contact information and knew my fiancé would love his portfolio too. They met with us in a timely fashion and provided us with all the information we needed to decide. He was very professional and organized. On our wedding day, we were worry-free and knew our photographs would be great. He was so great with our families and friends too. The photographs from our wedding are both timeless and artistic. They capture the theme of our wedding, our personalities and are great for sharing. We recommend CCIMAGES highly and can assure you of excellent quality, timely prints, professionalism and simply a great photographer.
Having Chris Chavira as our wedding photographer was a wonderful experience. He was very helpful leading up to wedding day, explaining and recommending ideas to make the photographic session fun. We didn’t even notice him during the wedding ceremony and he made the post wedding photographs enjoyable. His professionalism and experience were obvious when the light was fading and he was still able to get some amazing pictures. Thank you for making our wedding day so special!!!
I highly recommend Chris Chavira for your specialty portraiture needs, such as dance photography. He had taken photographs of me in some of my Middle Eastern dance costumes. Almost all belly dance photo shoots produce very typical images that are taken in studios with plain backgrounds and the dancers pose in the “standard” dances poses. These images usually are not very artistic or creative. Mr. Chavira on the other hand, utilizes the environment and the natural landscape (for me the photos took place outdoors by the beach) to create scenes that are unique, stylish and fashionable. I know that my photos will stand out in the world of static dance portraiture. Rather than looking like standard dance stills, they look like were produced for a fashion magazine. I also liked how he had me pose in unusual poses that complimented my personality, body, mood, costuming and the natural landscape.
