Photography today and we will let you know how we can make your wedding day more special.


A: Yes.  All of our wedding packages include the negatives.
A: When deciding on the best times for ceremony and reception, most brides do not take into consideration the time that the photographer needs to take your wedding pictures between the end of the ceremony and beginning of the reception. You’ll be spending a lot of money on your wedding photographer so you’ll want to make sure you make time. Your day and your wedding photography will be much more relaxed and memorable if you space things out and allow yourself to enjoy every aspect of the day, including your unrushed photo shoot.
A: Please call me and I will make arrangements for a meeting with you. The purpose of our consultations to spend some time discussing your specific wedding plans, after which you should be able to determine if we offer what you are looking for in wedding photography.  We will go over our price list and packaging options, answering any questions you might have about choosing the right package for your needs. Our advice to couples concerning choice of a wedding photographer usually involves answering these three questions:

  • Do you like the photographer’s work?
  • Do the photographer’s prices fit within your budget?
  • Are you pleased with the photographer’s style and personality?

If you can answer “yes” to all three of these questions, you are well on your way to making a decision.  If the answer is “no” to one or more of these questions, you might want to shop around a bit more before making your final decision.

A: We require a non-refundable deposit/retainer and a signed contract to book our wedding services. Once the retainer has been received and details of the chosen wedding package have been finalized on the agreement sheet, your booking with us is finalized.
A: We offer both bridal and engagement portrait sessions.  These sessions are included with some of our packages, or they can be purchased as separate options. As a side note, we sometimes do bridal or engagement sessions (or both) for couples who are not booked with us for wedding services.
A: CESAR CHAVEZ is the primary photographer and in some cases I use a handful of other assistants, and possible second shooters.  Depending on the package, I can use up to 4 additional people including a second camera, video camera man, and a look designer.
A: Cesar Chavez Photography shoots exclusively with Canon digital SLR cameras.
A: Our basic start time for wedding days is at least one hour before the ceremony.  This allows us time for equipment setup, assessment of the location for our shooting strategy, and taking a few shots of the bride, groom, and other wedding party members, etc., before the ceremony. In some cases, we start much earlier, depending on the wedding couple’s needs. Earlier starts are advisable when the bride and groom want to have more formal photos done before (rather than after) the ceremony.  Sometimes, the bride and groom wish to have a portion (sometimes, even all) of the formal photos out of the way before the ceremony so that there is little or no interruption between the end of the ceremony and the beginning of the reception.  In those cases, we will adjust our start time appropriately in order to have a good comfort zone (time-wise) to get all of the desired photos within the time allowed before the ceremony. .
A: I use a combination shooting style, mixing a candid photo approach (occasionally referred to as a photojournalistic style) with the more traditional posed formal photographs. Much of the style that I use is determined by the agreement that we reach with the bride and groom concerning the type of shots that they want us to use to tell the story of their wedding.  I generally adjust my shooting style to some degree based on what the bride and groom want from us, and we are usually able to determine what the bride and groom want in our pre-wedding consultations with them.
A: Yes of course, we are happy to photograph small family groups as long as the bride and groom wish us to do this.
A: Yes, I am bilingual in Spanish and English. Spanish is my native language.

A: I shoot maximum of one wedding per day. I may have two weddings in a weekend but it would not interfere with your day. 

A: I have been a photographer for over 10 years 

A: Yes, I can make just about any image I take black & white, sepia or colorized.

A: Yes, I have a shot list that I provide my clients. You can select “must have” poses from this list or provide your own. 

A: You may customize package based on your needs, however, I find that the packages I already have created always offer the most value. 


A: Yes, no problem. Please provide a two week lead time. 

A: Yes. I do basic color correction and cropping as part of my photography service. If you require additional retouching, you may purchase the service a la cart.

A: You will receive a contract for your wedding photography once we agree on a package. 

A: I require a $550 deposit upon booking. You may pay the balance of your package as you like as long as the balance is paid in full 1 month before your event. 

A: Your $550 deposit is non refundable once paid. You can, however, cancel your wedding date and make it for another time.
