❝ Zina is the only photographer I have ever felt comfortable in front of the camera with. She gets to know you and what you’re wanting to get out of a session, and suggests poses and angles based off that, all so naturally. Zina scouts locations and familiarizes herself with the location before your scheduled shoot to ensure quality and vision.
She is so passionate about photography and you can tell by the stories her work tells. Zina is very punctual, keeps her word, and is quick to edit and publish your shoot to her website for your access. If you’re wanting a hard-working and TALENTED visionary, I could not name anyone else! ❞

❝ Where do we even begin?! We first met Zina through Instagram and officially met her in July, months before our wedding for an engagement shoot. She felt like an old friend who just came up to visit for the weekend, the relaxed vibes and endless laughs made us even more excited for our big day. Weddings are as stressful and fast-paced as everyone says and they definitely require organization and structure.
Zina created the perfect schedule and shot list to help keep everything moving smoothly and effortlessly, because of that we were able to achieve every dreamy shot we had hoped for. Not only was Zina amazing but her team was equally great and incredibly professional. When we received our photos we were so overwhelmed, her ability to capture the purest moments are absolutely breathe taking.
Now every time we look back at our photos we feel like we get to re-live the most amazing day of our lives. Not to mention, everyone who sees them completely hushes over them. Having Zina capture the most important day of our lives was the best decision we made! ❞

❝ Working with Zina was such a joy! She takes her work and her art seriously, but you can tell she has so much fun and truly enjoys the whole experience. It can be hard to make people who aren’t used to being photographed feel comfortable, but Zina is so fantastic at putting you at ease and you can feel comfortable knowing the end result is so well worth it! ❞

❝ Something that not enough people talk about is how vulnerable a photoshoot can make someone feel. It’s an experience of allowing ourselves to be captured in the perspective of someone else, hoping that they can also create results based on our own vision.
And of course, what do we do with our hands!? (Hahah!) With Zina, she not only made the photography experience so comfortable but also FUN. I felt like I was able to be myself AND the future version of myself that I was growing into.
In the past, I would sometimes feel nervous about these lifestyle shoots and wouldn’t even feel comfortable looking at the camera. During this experience with Zina, however, it felt like I was catching up with a lifelong friend and ‘playing model” with a really fancy camera.
Her creative direction and cues for certain poses really made me feel like I was getting the most content for our time together, too! I’m so happy with how the photos turned out and grateful to have connected with Zina!
If you are seeking any support in capturing your brand, essence and the LIGHT that makes you, YOU — Zina is the woman that you’ve been calling in. Thank you Zina for sharing your ART with me. Your years of experience and kind energy are so fun to work with! ❞

❝ Zina is amazing! I was nervous for my fiancé because he is extremely shy but she made him feel comfortable & was able to capture his true personality. Zina is professional, punctual, and will go above & beyond for her clients. We had so much fun during our shoot! 100% booking with her again. ❞
