THIS. this is who CHUY PHOTOGRAPHY is! _____ I’ve had the privilege of building a connection with Caleb and his wife, Amy that has left a permanent mark in my heart. _____ this entire time, i’ve had a vision of how i want to be represented as an artist and individual. these series of photos tell it all. ______ from: -getting eloped -not caring if they get their dress dirty -a day after steamy session -to getting matching tattoos _____ let me tell you something, it’s okay to have visions and dreams about how you want all of this to unfold. all you have to do is believe in yourself. I’ve had numerous amounts of people tell me i can’t do both. i can’t photography and tattoo people. “you have to choose one or the other buddy!” “good luck trying to make it in the tattoo industry, it’s cutthroat.” _____ i don’t care about any of that stuff. i care about leaving a permanent mark on my couples. period. if you have a vision, share it with the world, then work so FUNKING hard to make it happen. _____ this couple has changed my life, the way i view things and the direction I WANT TO MOVE FORWARD WITH, WITH MY COUPLES. _____ make this shit happen, you got this funker! i’m back and feel so full of life and ready to kill it🔥🤘🏽 _____ Workshop: @henrysdiary @heydarlingworkshop Design & Styling: @rainandpines Florals: @rustedvaseco Cake: @siftandgather Calligrapher: @krisannaelizabeth MUA: @oohlalajessica Dress Shop: @thedresstheoryseattle Dress Designer: @florabridal Models: @calebclaytonfilmandphoto @amyy.clayton _____ .

this one is for you...sometimes you just have to yell FUNK! _____ funk: your negative thoughts. you’re a badass motherfunker! funk: trying to please people. please your soul! funk: those who don’t appreciate your art. they aren’t for you and super toxic to your thought process. funk: your excuses! stop saying people are lucky. it’s hard work. plain and simple. funk: being comfortable. challenge yourself in different situations that will better you as a person/artist. funk: living life so serious. laugh a little more, kiss on bae a little longer, and hug them until you hear a little fart. _____ for example: these shots were all in my head and wanted to bring it to life so bad. i found my couple, location was set and it was about to go down. 2 kids rolled up in scooters ready to shred their life away and we had to relocate because we didn’t want these kids seeing the goods of my couple. we opted for another location but it’s not what i envisioned. right before leaving, I said FUNK THIS and made this shit happen! _____ moral of the story: sometimes your stubbornness to fighting for your art and $40 bucks to those kids to close their eyes goes a very long way🛹 .

i received an email the other day of someone asking me if i still shoot weddings. the answer is a definite, YES! _____ i experienced a burnout last year with the 50 weddings i shot in a year, mostly alone and all edited with these hands that are being used to write this message. i thought i had to shoot a lot of weddings to be known or to say that “i made it”. i don’t care about that stuff anymore. _____ i’m known in the industry as the person who does not give a funk about what others think of him and all the butts i get to photograph. _____ you see, your couples don’t care about any of that stuff. all they want is YOU. the real YOU! not the person you try to be behind a screen. stop doubting yourself or comparing yourself to others. your couples have booked you for 2019/20 because they see something in you that is so heart warming enough to put that trust in your hands to tell their story. _____ applaud yourself, sip a little more of that wine tonight, smile more and worry less because honey, you’ve made it🧡 .

here’s one of the biggest tips i can give you: TREAT YOUR PHOTOSHOOTS LIKE A COLLAB! _____ i handed over my camera to my beautiful couple and left them alone in the restroom for about 5 minutes. i set up my camera, handed it to them, and let them do their thang. _____ if you ever feel stuck when creating or posing couples, it is okay to take a break. you’re a human being, not a robot! _____ have some fun with it, trust me! your couples will appreciate it🔥 .

in this life, you are the writer to your story. _____ you have the power to bend the rules, break the rules, and create them. _____ don’t look for perfection because you’ll never reach it. _____ challenge yourself in ways you’d never thought would be possible and the most important rule of em all: DON’T GIVE A FUNK!🔥 _____ Taken: @funkyouworkshop Edit: @chuyolapresets .

this one goes out to you... _____ to all the people under one roof creating absolutely FUNKING MAGIC!!! and not giving the slightest FUNK about what others think. _____ see that’s the community and branding i dreamed of and it’s been such a dream come true. _____ tears rolling down faces, laughing until we pee a little and hearing everyone say, “we are family.” _____ for those haters always creeping on shit and trying to bring us down, you know where your head’s at, get it! so this one is for you too👊🏻💨 .
