Hi, I'm Taylor, the Creative Director here at Chas Studios. I co-founded a matchmaking company at the age of 16 and have since amassed two decades of experience in the dating and relationship industry. My deep understanding spans critical areas, from the spiritual growth potential within relationships to navigating finances with your partner. In 2017, just two weeks after relocating to Mexico City, I met and fell head over heels for Diego, who was working in the fashion and editorial world at the time. We subsequently moved to Puerto Vallarta and launched Chas Studios, a photography and film house specializing in weddings and events. Now, as we plan our own wedding, we feel a desire to share our journey through this blog series. I invite you to join us and encourage you to reach out with questions, thoughts, or to share your own tales of wedding planning. Connecting with readers enriches our experience!
