A group effort..

Meet the team.

Sam Chinigo

Sam

The Master of the Moment, the artist,..the doofus. A former rock singer turned photographer, Sam saw the movie "The Wedding Singer" and knew that's what he wanted to do with his life. But alas, his dream was not to be. (Apparently, the Journey tunes were okay, but there just weren't alot of brides looking to hear Van Halen, Whitesnake or Dream Theatre at their wedding reception.) So he chopped the locks and decided to pursue wedding photography, as it seemed to be a way to allow him to stay close to the dream. So close, so close but yet so far. (Embarrassing long hair & mullet photos available upon request.)
Aside from photography, Sam enjoys spending time with his family & friends, sports, & home improvement projects. Wow..what a renaissance man.

Kerry

Kerry

Talk about "Eye Candy". As the 80' Tubes song goes.."She's a beauty..". Kerry is the "Mrs. Chinigo" and has been married to Sam for 10 "back breaking" years. She assembles & designs traditional style wedding albums and takes care of the "business" side of things. Kerry focuses most of her time on their family, which includes 2 wonderful children (Gabriella 6, and Mason 3). She likes Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain. She's not much into health food..and she's married to a pain.



Michele

Michele

Speaking of the 80's..A photographer and Graphic artist, Michele is a second shooter with Sam and does most of the wedding album design & layout. A wife (husband to former Mexican movie star "Doug the Mug" Walworth) and mother of 2 wonderful boys Chance, 5 & Christien, 2 (aka "2nd Chance"), Michele is also a former musician, having played with a variety of local bands. She still has trouble letting go of the 80's..but we don't hold that against her. (Ask her to belt out some Pat Benatar or Heart if you see her.) Her husband Doug has recently come out of retirement to play the lead role in the Mexican version of "Don't Mess with the Zohan"..to be titled "Don't mess with me Bro-man".



name of person

Michelle

The latest addition to the crew. Michelle has always had a "passion for the picture". Michele is now assisting Sam at weddings and growing her skills as a photographer. She enjoys spending time with her friends, family and dog Jesse. She takes so many photographs that she once had to have a camera surgically removed from her eye. She now tries to shoot by using the live view feature so that it doesn't happen again. Some say she has a striking resemblance to Elaine Benes from Seinfeld. We don't really see the resembance, but every one has an opinion.
