Chris was amazing from day one! He took time to meet us during the week late at night. My fiance and I had meetings lined up with other photographers the rest of that week. After meeting with Chris, we hired him right then and there and cancelled all other appointments we had. We knew Chris was the right photographer to handle our big day. On our wedding day, Chris was not only professional but courteous. He was excited just like everyone else that day and really made sure to capture all of our moments. Any request we had, Chris made sure to accommodate. Our wedding day seemed to have flown by rather quickly. My wife and I were both excited to see how the photos turned out, since the day went by so quick we were unsure if everything was caught on camera. We received the photos from Chris soon after. Needless to say, they were great!! My wife was extremely happy and we both enjoyed going through each photo recalling every moment of our wedding. Chris has a great eye for taking photos. He is a true pro! I recommended Chris to friends and family. They have all told me that they are more than happy and satisfied with his work! Trust me when I say that Chris is the right man to hire. Thank you Chris! We will make sure to use your services again with any photo opportunities in the future!
Chris Chavira is a fantastic photographer! I was impressed with his work when I first saw his booth at a bridal show, and my delight continued through my engagement and wedding photographs. He's artistic, creative, friendly, professional, and great at directing shots and making people comfortable in front of the camera. He had such great ideas, and my pictures range from quirky and fun to gorgeous and elegant, which was exactly what I wanted to capture the personalities of myself, my husband, and our friends and family. If you are looking for someone who you can trust to give you beautiful memories of your event, I highly recommend that you contact Chris Chavira Photography.
AMAZING Photographer leads to GREAT ExperienceReviewed on 3/09/2014 Eric L
We had found Chris at the Bridal Show in Los Angeles during the Bridal Convention. We were sold from the moment he painted the picture of how our wedding would be and what he envisioned through the eyes of his camera. We just met and he already had everyone in tears of happiness. For the Engagement Shoot he was full of great ideas and was also open to our own suggestions. He got to know who we were and based the shoot off our lifestyles. He called it our "Fast and Furious Engagement Shoot" and had our Nissan 350 Z take part in some of the photos as well. For the day of our wedding, Chris was there for every moment. From the time she was preparing at the hotel room in the morning, till the very end. The Assistant Vaughn was available to help with the Groom and the Groomsmen and get photos before the big ceremony, and ran the photo-booth which made Chris fully available for us and the guests. About 3 weeks after the big day, we received our photos and after viewing them, we are extremely satisfied and are willingly ready to recommend him to all our friends and family.
Both my husband and I loved working with Chris and Robot! We loved how different both of there perspectives we're. Having both of them shoot our wedding covered it all perfectly! So happy with the way they turned out.
Truly the best. I'm not a person who likes to be in front of the camera but when it's your wedding you have no choice but to look for the best to make you feel as comfortable. Chris was amazing made me feel very relaxed in being in front of the camera. Great personality. But what you mostly want to hear are the Pictures. He takes the greatest pictures as I booked him for my engagement photos and once looking over all of them it was so hard to pick one for the Save the Date postcards because they were all so amazing. I didn't hesitate in booking him for my wedding and I'm so glad I went with Chris from CCImages because photos and memories are everything to me and he truly captured it all. Thank you Chris will look forward to having you take my pregnancy Pictures in the near future.
Beautiful PhotosReviewed on 2/11/2014 Malisa K
My husband and I had Ccimages cover both our engagement shoot and our wedding. We had our shoot at a cute little park in Huntington Beach and it was so much fun! Chris was awesome. We felt so comfortable and we had a great time. Another great thing was that we had just met him that very day too, but felt like we had known him for a while. That's when you know you have a good connection with someone and that's when we knew that we wanted him to photograph our special day. We got married on January 25, 2014 and Chris was wonderful. He was on time, he was fun, and he had so many amazing ideas for all the photos. I loved how he wasn't just taking your typical wedding portraits, but he put an artistic spin on each photo. My husband and I are so pleased with the photos that we have received so far. We will be receiving the rest in the mail very soon! I definitely recommend Ccimages for any of your photography needs. They do a great job and the photos really do show it. :) Oh and I cannot forget to mention is partner Vaugn, he was great! He photographed the guys getting ready and ran the photo booth! (which was a huge hit! ) definitely would relive this night with these guys again!
Non traditional, creative and classic!Reviewed on 9/18/2012 Christine G
Chris Chavira provided amazing engagement and wedding photos. My husband and I wanted our memories to be as unique as our personalities and thanks to Chris's creativity and artistic eye we got that and more... Engagement pics reminiscent of American film noir and wedding pictures out of a fairy tale.
Professional PhotographerReviewed on 5/10/2012 Helenne A
Dear Chris Chivira of CCImages, I personally want to thank you for photographing Lisa and Pete’s wedding on April 20, 2012 aboard the Queen Mary of Long Beach. You were part of its success and I truly enjoyed watching how you took your time, added care to get the right angle, making sure the lighting, background and poses were just right. I knew then, we picked the right photographer! If you could send me some more of your business cards, I will definitely do my best to advertise your brilliant photography and be happy to hand them out to people I know who are looking for a photographer. Thank you, once again. Helenne Asebez, Mother of the Bride Asebez/Linneman Wedding, April 20, 2012, aboard the RMS Queen Mary of Long Beach

My love of photography started with my family albums. I was inspired by my fathers images. Another great source of inspiration comes from cinema, fashion magazines and paintings like Norman Rockwell. All of which translates into my storytelling style starting with the engagement shoot to the wedding. Seeing the joy on my client's faces as they view their pictures is the single most rewarding moment. I love people, camping, gardening and travel. I served in the U.S. Army and earned my Bachelor of Science in photography from Cal Poly University. Oh, and I like my coffee sweet.
