Hola! My name is Chaz Cruz and I am a photographer based out of San Diego, CA. My specialties include weddings, fashion and lifestyle portraits. This blog is named after my obsession with "The Office" and of a lovable character named Creed Bratton. He writes about his random musings under a blog titled "Creed Thoughts," so I thought I'd do the same and name it "Chaz Thoughts." So please, browse around and don't forget to leave me a comment or two!
When I booked Reshele and Brent, who are avid gamers (video, board, everything!), I asked Brent "what's your favorite moment spent with Reshele?" He said, "we love going to plays, then after the play, my favorite part is just sitting on the couch in our dress clothes and playing games." To me that was a beautiful answer, it totally defined them and I was excited to capture that reality.

Brent decided to draw me for one of the games, I think its a great likeness, except for the goatee.

When Jenny asked if I was willing to head to Glamis, about 2 hours East of San Diego, for some fun in the desert with an ATV and a bunch of sand dunes, I jumped at the chance. When we arrived, it was one of most serene feelings I ever had, so I was excited to get photographing.

Hi Chaz. I really enjoy the sepia portrait of Isaac at the bottom. Such a simple yet well-executed celebration of a face, a soul...a life. Thank you for sharing this story and your gift with us :)

While I was in New York, I photographed an engagement session in New Jersey with Colleen and Victor, whom you might remember, as I photographed his proposal to her after my best friends wedding. We headed out to Camp Fatima, where the two had first met.

The step where they first discussed getting together and Colleen still had a boyfriend, good job Victor!
