  • About Us

    Breaking the wedding photography mold, one wedding at time!

    Tony proposed to me (Casey) at one of our favorite arcade game places with my ring popping out of a gumball machine. We have 3 dogs and a cat and they think we're THEIR pets. Tony's learning to play tennis with me, and he's taught me the fun of camping, fishing, riding motorcycles, and just relaxing in general. We play co-ed softball together whenever the opportunity arises. No matter what team we step onto, it's inevitable: he's always short stop, and I'm always on third. We're eachother's permanent side-kick, and somehow we're blessed with this natural flow for working together that has simply MADE Chapa Images.

    We are different from many husband and wife photography teams in that neither of us is the second shooter. This is not my business, and it's not his. It's ours. We are both the lead photographer, and we have our specific roles within the business. Tony is the lighting MASTER. He is a strobist to the core and creates some of the most striking images I've ever seen. I often choose to shoot with strobes as well, but many of my images are often softer, more intimate, and light.

    All in all - that's us. We play together, work together, and sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure it's all for real!

Lauren and Chase at Ma Maison, Abilene, Texas and International Wedding Photographers

This day was just full of beautiful moments. As seems to be par for our trips to the Texas Hill Country, it did rain. A lovely NEEDED kind of rain that really cooled off the day and gave us some gorgeous post ceremony clouds.

And as is par for the couples we usually work with, Lauren and Chase embraced it all! (And as is par for Casey and Tony, we were scheming and betting before we even arrived as to if Lauren was going to agree to some rain shots in her dress. She totally DID agree, for the record. She agreed before we hardly even got the words out of our mouths actually, but the rain stopped and we ended up with some jaw dropping images under a reclaimed French gazebo instead! Even better.).

As usual, we are so grateful for getting to be a part of this most special day. We got to meet a bride and groom and their family and make them a part of our own story and memories, and that’s part of what I love so much about what we do as wedding photographers. Congratulations Lauren and Chase, we pray for blessings and many, many beautiful years for the two of you!

Love, Casey and Tony

(P.S. I’ll be sharing Lauren and Chase’s FULL wedding gallery link along with her bridal portraits later this week!).
