Hi, I’m Zig.


Where are you located

I left NYC in Nov. 2018 to pursue my dream of living in Austin, TX where I now reside with my partner of 12 years (Phil!), 6 chickens, and our three-legged puppy Prune Marie.

Why weddings

I love music, happy people, celebrations, big emotions, and beautiful things. -- What's better to base your life around than that???
Do you do destination weddings and / or elopements?

Do you do destinations or elopements

Yes, please.


 My shooting style

I am “in this” with you. I will deliver photos that make you remember the very best parts of your day and hold that magic indefinitely. I work with each couple to design an easy plan to achieve that goal. I will capture things as they unfold naturally so that you can, above all, truly be in the moment with friends and family. I will be minimally-invasive, supremely focused, and probably cry during your vows. I will  also dance. I can’t help it.

If you’d like to arrange for a second shooter, or a short film to accompany your images, I can create a two-photographer package especially tailored to your needs. My partner makes Super8 movies. They are beautiful.

I’m here to make images that celebrate you as a couple and to highlight the magic of your day.
