Hi, I'm Diego Chas
Art has always been a cornerstone of Diego’s life. Born in Argentina, he moved to Mexico City in 2005 to study at the AAVI Academia de Artes Visuales (Academy of Visual Arts). Captivated by the fashion and editorial industry, he gained a decade of experience working on both sides of the camera. In 2015, he pursued his lifelong dream of launching a bespoke wedding photography agency offering a high-end, personalized service.
Wedding photography challenges Diego to capture each couple’s unique chemistry and story in a tailor-made way. No two weddings are alike, therefore, Diego and his team take a unique approach to each wedding. Candid photography is a key piece in Diego’s repertoire, allowing him to capture a moment so real, so raw, so intense, and so fragile, that you can feel it years later while looking at a single photo. This is what Diego is known for: a mastery of the soft, organic, classic, and timeless look that film provides.
Hi, I'm Taylor Wade
Born in Canada and raised in different parts of the world, Taylor has acquired an eclectic professional and cultural background. Having lived in 10 cities around the world, Taylor’s experience as a co-founder and digital marketing director is diverse and dynamic. She received her bachelor’s degree in International Business and Spanish while simultaneously launching a high-end matchmaking service in 2002.
When she moved to Mexico in 2017, she joined forces with Diego Chas and launched Chas Photography with one goal in mind: to provide a one-of-a-kind luxury wedding photography service. Taylor is involved in all aspects of the creative process and client experience, from the initial pre-wedding meeting to the final delivery of your photos. As a team and an engaged couple planning for their own wedding, Diego and Taylor both understand the intricacies involved in planning a wedding!
Hi, I'm Gabriel Silva
Gabriel is our in-house videographer. Also born in Argentina, he moved to Mexico City in 2009 to work in the world of commercial video production and advertising. This career allowed him to travel to 14 different countries and exposed him to a diverse range of cultures. He met Diego Chas shortly thereafter and instantly became good friends. The two have been working together in some capacity for over 13 years!
Gabriel moved to Puerto Vallarta in 2022 to work as Chas Photography’s in-house videographer. Gabriel is creative, detail-oriented, energetic, and highly motivated in all areas of his work. When he’s not working, you can find him training for the Puerto Vallarta Marathon, rock climbing, or teaching himself something new about the creative process.
