As you embark upon this new journey together, I want to contribute to memories of the day you became one. Your love isn’t mediocre and neither should your memories be. Every love story is unique, so in whatever way you choose to celebrate, I am committed to telling your story and honoring your love through captivating imagery recalling genuine emotions of that day.
For the couple that wants an intimate ceremony foregoing the traditional wedding and guests and making the moment solely about you. Whether at the courthouse, your local fave spot or international destination, lasting a few hours or multiple days, there’s no perfect formula for how you celebrate your love. The primary focus will be you.
At ZZP, my passion to capture love is fueled by elegant simplicity mixed with fun adventure. While your love deserves awesome memories no matter how big or small, ZZP deeply connects with intimate or microweddings with less than 40 people; you and those nearest and dearest to your heart. I also capture a limited number of traditional weddings each year that are the perfect fit.
Engagement sessions included in signature packages or a la carte, allow me the opportunity to get to know you better and also gain your trust before the big day. Creatively celebrate your Anniversary! Picture fun, flirty and your quirky moments intertwining formal and candid shots, in locations that embody your love. Just promise you won’t mind me encouraging PDA and the likes.
Celebrating life, love and everything in between, your session is 90 mins and includes a separate image reveal within 2-3 weeks. All sessions require a minimum order requirement to place your separate product order. I strive to capture laughter, authenticity, and fun in an environment comfortable to you.
At ZZP, we believe in the power of prints. We are in the business of artiscally capturing intimate interactions, authentic emotions and swoon worthy portraits that deserve to be shown as art in albums and displayed throughout your home.
Think of this as your first heirlooms to pass down for generations to come. Your legacy deserves to see these moments rooted in love, relived over and over again.

Yassss!!!! Fill out my contact form and give me a short spill about your day. I require a $500.00 non-refundable retainer fee to add your date to the calendar. Your remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the event. The retainer may sometimes vary with small elopements.
Depending on the coverage time, I may shoot alone or have and assistant and/or a second photographer with me. This is someone that I fully trust will represent ZZP and provide the same quality images and service and overall help carry out all photography logistics of your day.
While I know how excited you are to see your images, taking the photos is the fun part. The post-processing is where I put on the "elbow grease" to make your images stand out and pop. Standard turnaround time for wedding galleries is 8-10 weeks after your date. At times your wait may be shorter, however, there is no guarantee. We’ll meet for an image Reveal and show you ways to display your memories in your home. Product delivery time depends on the type of products ordered.
Absolutely! Planners of course help with this, but we will definitely go over this in-depth to make sure the perfect amount of time is dedicated to capture your special moments.
Erika is amazing at what she does. She works really hard on your wedding day to give your forever memories. If you want quality and a professional she's the one. ZZP helped make my day magical and it was captured beautifully.

Everything about Zest & Zeal is perfect; from the professionalism and passion of the photographer to the setting and the very minute details that she is able to see and capture. We’ve had multiple sessions and loved every second of our experience and HIGHLY recommend her. From our milestone anniversary to family photos, she has a magnificent eye, truly capturing the essence of us. I can’t wait for upcoming senior pictures for my son.
-Trenda + Deon
Zest & Zeal was absolutely brilliant from start to finish. Erika is professional, efficient, friendly and most importantly, took the most fabulous photographs of our graduation and sorority photoshoot. The entire experience was stellar-- the fluidity and flexibility of the photographer was a plus. She allowed us to use different ideas, bring creativity to the shoot and have lots of fun with the poses.Through slightly challenging weather conditions, the end result was still AMAZING. We absolutely loved our photos and the Legacy frame we gifted our mother.I would highly recommend Zest & Zeal Photography to others.
