Hi, I’m Zig.
I’m so glad you found me! I come from a background shooting musicians and their performances and aim to portray things in an authentic, thoughtful way whether that’s a quiet moment in a parking lot or an exuberant burst of energy coming from a packed dance floor. I am classically trained and always happy to bring film along to the party. The most important element of any shoot, however, is you. Every human being or couple has a unique story to tell– I’m excited to be the one who gets to be there to document it. I take the preservation of your experience to heart!
My shooting style
–Weddings are enthralling! I am “in this” with you. My goal is to capture and deliver the images that are most important to you and I work with each couple to design a simple plan to achieve that goal. I want to capture the day as it unfolds naturally so that you can focus on being with friends and family rather than spending time getting led around by a photographer. I will be a minimally-invasive presence as to not be a distraction while being supremely focused. If you’d like to arrange for a second shooter, or a 16mm short film to accompany your images, we can create a two-photographer package especially tailored to fit your needs.
I’m here to make images that celebrate you as a couple and to highlight the magic of your day.
I currently live in Austin, TX with my partner of over 10-years who is also a photographer & filmmaker. We spend a lot of time in Brooklyn, NY where up until recently, we’ve lived for the last 5 or 6 years working in the world of fine art, editorial, and commercial fashion photography –time flies when you’re hustling! I’ve also been lucky enough to live in Philadelphia, PA (where we met & attended art school) and in Oakland, CA. In 2015 I fulfilled my dream of not only visiting a National Park (there are so few on the East Coast!) but getting to camp in more than 10 of them in one summer. Point being: I travel well and whenever I can, so if you’ve got a destination in mind, it’s likely I’m your gal. I also love to surf and dig in the garden so if you want to play in the water or get down in the dirt I’m all about that, too! I will not hesitate to climb a tree to get the shot.
Please feel free to get in touch via the contact page if you’d like to discuss pricing, ask any questions, or share the vision you have for your shoot or ceremony. I can’t wait to talk with you!
