I provide a wide range of photography services to capture life's special moments. My offerings include wedding photography, individual and couple portraits, engagement sessions, family photos, newborn and maternity photography, and much more. All sessions take place at a location of your choosing, and I specialize in creating stunning images using natural outdoor lighting, avoiding the constraints of an indoor studio.
If you have a unique idea or vision that isn't listed here, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I'm eager to hear about your creative concepts and make them a reality!
I would describe my photography style as authentic and candid, with a touch of gentle guidance and direction when it comes to portraits and group photos. My primary aim is to capture the genuine moments of your special day while allowing you to fully enjoy the event without feeling overwhelmed by the camera.
Preserving your wedding day memories without intruding on your experience is of utmost importance to me. I don't heavily rely on posing, but I do offer subtle guidance and direction to ensure we capture the most stunning photos of your day.
My standard delivery time for your event photos is typically 30 days from the event date, although during certain seasons, you may receive them even sooner. I also offer 'sneak peeks' with most of my wedding packages, allowing you to quickly share a few highlights with your loved ones while eagerly awaiting the full collection!
In my gallery, you'll find images that have been professionally edited to enhance aspects such as lighting, contrast, sharpness, and color. This editing process is a standard practice among digital photographers. Please note that I do not provide the unedited RAW images.
Absolutely, once I deliver the photographs to you, you have full rights to use them as you wish. I kindly request that any businesses using my work for public or marketing purposes provide credit by mentioning my name (@zilosphoto, #zilosphoto).
Your photos will be conveniently delivered to your email along with a link to your dedicated online gallery. With the provided PIN, you can easily download your photos, share the gallery link with friends and family, post on social media, and even order prints directly from the gallery.
If desired, you can also opt to receive a flash drive containing the specific number of photos included in your package.
Opting for a second shooter can offer a multitude of benefits on your special day. Firstly, it allows us to capture those precious 'getting ready moments' when you and your partner may be in separate locations before the ceremony. It ensures that no significant moment is missed and allows for a wider range of angles and perspectives, guaranteeing comprehensive coverage throughout your ceremony and other pivotal moments.
Imagine this scenario: as you walk down the aisle, you may want to cherish photos of your radiant smile, the intricate details of your dress, and simultaneously capture your partner's emotional reaction. While I do my utmost to achieve this when working solo, a second shooter ensures that all these moments are beautifully documented.
Furthermore, I highly recommend a second photographer for weddings with many guests. This additional support guarantees that all guests and families are covered, especially while the primary shooter focuses exclusively on capturing the couple's special moments.
Absolutely, I highly encourage scheduling an engagement session with your photographer before the big day! It serves as an invaluable opportunity to become comfortable in front of the camera alongside your partner and build a rapport with your photographer.
I recommend selecting a location that holds personal significance for you both—whether it's that amazing cafe you had your first coffee with your significant other, a beloved park where you stroll with your dog, or even at the beach! It's about creating memories in a place that matters to you.
I'm delighted to include an engagement session with all 8+ hour wedding packages. Feel free to reach out today for more information on our wedding packages or to schedule your engagement session!
California offers some of the most enchanting wedding venues and locations, but we all know that the weather can be quite unpredictable, especially going from one side of the state to another. The key to ensuring a seamless celebration is preparedness!
Consider having a backup location for your ceremony or the option of a tent in case of rain. Providing umbrellas for your guests is a thoughtful touch, and, if all else fails, embracing the weather can lead to some delightful surprises! Rainy moments can even make for charming and memorable photos—so don't let a little drizzle dampen the spirits of your special day.
