We LOVED our photos from Seth and Dez. We used them for our engagement session and they were able to provide a very quick turn-around so that we could use a photobook from the session as a sign-in book at the wedding. We received our wedding pictures a few weeks ago and are again thrilled with the results. The quality is excellent and they were a lot of fun to work with. I've already recommended them to friends and will continue to do so.

We love Zelo! We found Seth and Des by looking through blog posts of previous weddings at our venue (Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad) and thought Zelo's photos were clearly the best. They were classic but also fun, and the colors just seemed to pop out of their photos. We arranged to meet with 3 photographers, because Zelo's prices were a bit more than we had planned for, but especially after meeting with them it was no question who we would hire. Seth and Des are fun people, and made us feel at ease from our first meeting. We ended up hiring them for an engagement session and 8 hours at the wedding, but not doing albums, to save a bit of money there. We could not be happier with our experience. They suggested fantastic locations for our engagement session (balboa park and then a rocky beach in la jolla) and had us laughing and looking our best. We were nervous, but it ended up being fun! Our experience at the wedding was even better. They were organized, on time, and ready to go with our list of "must have photos." Our ceremony start was delayed because of a mishap with another vendor, and they did not miss a beat, using the extra pre-wedding time to get additional photos we had planned for afterwards. They were around but not in the way the whole night, being there when we wanted a group shot, but otherwise keeping a low profile and snapping candids. We really appreciated how before they left they asked us if there were any other photos we still wanted, and waited as we gathered together friends we hadn't gotten photos of earlier. They also set up an AMAZING night shot of us using remote flashes. We got our photos back 4 or 5 weeks after the wedding (so fast!), and LOVE them. The day was beautiful, but their photos REALLY made the day look beautiful. They caught so many moments, from facial expressions during the toasts to moves on the dance floor to artistic details of the venue. Hiring Zelo was seriously one of the best decisions we made for the whole wedding.

When I say "exceeded our expectations", you might think that maybe we didn't have the highest of expectations. However, this is entirely not true! When my husband and I were first searching for a photographer, we found many websites, and Zelo Photography was the first one who made us really feel "WOWed" by their work. We knew they were going to put fourth incredible work. So needless to say, when we had our expectations EXCEEDED, and by a long shot, we couldn't have been happier! We have looked through our wedding photos about a million times over and never tire of it! Their ability to capture the emotion, the feeling, the love, and the energy is incredible, and they do it in a style that will be completely timeless. Their dedicated work ethic and awesome attitudes make you feel 100% comfortable throughout the day and the outcome is TOTALLY worth the wait. Everyone deserves the most beautiful of wedding photos, and I can PROMISE that you will get just that with Zelo.

I met Seth and Dez at the bridal bizarre in downtown San Diego and right away they stood out from other photographers. They were actually listening to me and not trying to pitch any "spiel." When they followed up the next week, it wasn't with an automated message but a personal one that included the specifics we had talked about. My fiance and I were very impressed with their photos. Nothing was cheesy; everything was very classy and had a very warm feeling to it. They were the first photographers we interviewed and they answered all the questions we didn't even know we had, including giving us advice about what to ask other photographers we might be considering. When all the interviews were done, I knew they were my first choice, and Seth and Dez worked with us to come up with a package that would fit our budget. Leading up to the wedding, they were available for any questions and made the whole portrait planning process a breeze. Day of they were very calm and professional, things I had been looking for in a photographer since I knew I would be stressed out and the last thing I needed was a high-strung photographer ordering people around. They captured every important moment with ninja stealth; we never even knew they were there! They worked seamlessly around our schedule, keeping the day all about us. And the end product is superb. We absolutely love all of our photos and haven't yet tired of looking through them all as we share them with family and friends. I highly recommend Zelo to any bride looking for a photography team that will deliver great photos with zero stress.

I found Seth and Des at the Bridal Faire in Del Mar, and from the get go, they were friendly, warm, and easy to talk to. More than that, their photos spoke for themselves: beautiful moments that were captured so effortlessly. I was drawn to their albums immediately--other photographers' photos looked as if they were trying too hard with funky colors and hazes. When we set up an engagement session, my now husband and I felt really awkward. We weren't used to posing and never figured out what to do with our hands! ;) Yet, Seth and Des made us feel completely comfortable. Fast forward to our wedding day. It's amazing how despite only spending one other day together, it felt as if we were old friends. There was no awkwardness. We could just be completely ourselves, and Zelo was there to capture it all. Every single person that has viewed our photos has said they're the best wedding photos they've ever seen. We have great moments with family, friends, and most importantly, each other. Seth and Des really captured the feelings of the day. We have a great amount of candids, which we will treasure always. Definitely snag Seth and Des as your photographers while you can. We will definitely be calling them in the future when we add kids to the mix! :)

I cannot speak anymore highly of Zelo Photography! Seth and Desiree were absolutely AMAZING to work with. My fiancé and I flew out from Chicago to San Diego to do our engagement session and we had no idea what to expect. They were very good with communicating with us in planning on where to meet and what not. Oh, and might I add that our photos turned out INCREDIBLE. I recommend them to EVERYONE. You will not be disappointed!!! Thank you so much for everything!! :o)

We were blown away by Seth and Desiree of Zelo Photography. They were recommended by our coordinator and we could not have been happier or delighted. they were flexible and FUN! They did a lot to reduce the stress and make us feel comfortable in front of the lens. Our photos came out better than I could have ever hoped. We are not spring chickens so I was really nervous...but we looked fabulous and their eye for a good shot is modern and very creative. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone!

I met Seth & Desiree at the Bridal Bazaar in Del Mar. I actually approached them because they were the only booth at that show that weren't attacking me when I walked by and telling me what I had to have for my wedding. Choosing them for our photographer was by far our best decision! They made me and my now husband feel so comfortable, most of the time you didn't even notice they were there taking pictures.
Our wedding was probably the hottest day of the year and they were still running all around trying to capture the best shots.

I have many friends that were disappointed w/ the photographer at their weddings and I honestly can say that I don't have a single complaint. I highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for an amazing photographer.

When booking our wedding photographers we were looking for someone that would capture our day in a unique and artistic way. What we did not expect was that this fun and playful couple would also add to the joy of our day. We enjoyed every minute with them and have the stunning pictures to last a lifetime.

We feel so lucky that we had the opportunity to work with Seth and Desiree of Zelo Photography for our engagement and wedding photos! Seth and Dez are two of the nicest people in the world, and they were responsive, flexible, professional, easy-going, and lovely throughout the whole process. At our engagement shoot in San Francisco, they instantly made us feel comfortable and laid-back in front of the camera. Our engagement photos were incredible--they so perfectly captured our personalities and love--and we had a wonderful time shooting with Seth and Dez. We recently received our wedding photos and, like our engagement photos, they are breathtaking. Seth and Dez captured us, our loved ones, and the spirit of our wedding day so authentically, beautifully, and thoughtfully. On our wedding day, they were gracious, kind, and attentive. When we look through the photos, we see the overwhelming, incredible emotions of the day reflected and we are transported back to our special day. We will treasure both sets of photos for years to come, and we feel so grateful to have had the chance to work with Zelo.

I truly can't recommend better photographers. Years ago, a friend used them for her wedding, and I remember being in awe of the pictures returned to her. Within a day of getting engaged, we had a couple of flexible wedding dates in mind, and Zelo Photography was our first call. I knew I absolutely had to use them. Such a delight to work with, responded immediately to (MANY MANY) questions I had, and really helped me with the planning process. They came from San Diego to Arizona in the middle of a HOT summer, and were fabulous. They were such good sports despite 100+ degree temperatures, joking, helping us relax, and have a great time. Even when I had a dress/hair mishap, Dez was the one to help me out and troubleshoot!! By the end of the night, they honestly felt like friends, such a pivotal part of our big day. When our pictures came back, they blew our impossibly high expectations out of the water. They beautifully captured the wedding details, our candid moments, expressions, and the love shared by us, our family, and wedding guests. Absolutely breathtaking photography, which did our memories justice of the all-too-fast wedding day. It was the best decision we made :) I have four younger sisters and a younger brother who will get married someday, and without a doubt, will use Zelo Photography. Can't wait!!!

Zelo Photography (Seth & Dez) are simply the best! I cannot express to you have amazing they are. They were a referral from my sister who was wed a year prior to me, and after seeing how stunning her photos turned out I HAD to use Zelo! From their organization from when I first contact to book with them, to the day of the wedding getting all my family together for photos along with getting such special moments between me and my husband, they made us feel so comfortable. And they made us look so glamorous! Because of their ease and confidence my husband and I were able to take fabulous photos. I would HIGHLY recommend them to ANYONE getting married.

Zelo is the best! No doubt about it, hands down the best! Seth and Desiree are like two peas in a pod…a pod of excellent photography! We were honored to have our wedding captured forever by their creative and professional approach to photography. I truly believe that this husband and wife duo have an eye for great shots that you will not find with other wedding photographers.
We live in Arizona, but we were having our wedding in San Diego. Making things run smoothly long distance is not always easy, but Zelo pulled through with the open line of communication. Had we been available to get out to San Diego more easily, we surely would have had engagement photos done with Zelo, and I regret not making it happen.
Seth and Desiree worked together as a team so efficiently, they never missed a shot. They were ready at every turn: before, during, and after the ceremony.
The photo selection process after it was all said and done was smooth and easy. The selection process wasn't about getting rid of the photos that were "bad," but more about choosing the photos that were the most amazing. I don't think Zelo knows what the word "average" means, because their work is so far beyond that!
All in all, our experience was a blast! We'd recommend Zelo in a heartbeat! They are the best at what they do, and if you don't believe that, then allow them to prove it, because they will!!!
Thank you Seth and Desiree, you guys rock!

After seeing photos from other wedding venues of friends, I learned to appreciate Zelo's work. At first I was bummed that I didn't receive as many photos as I would like, but then I noticed they sorted through hundreds of photos and organized them for me. I really appreciated that because having to sift through 4 or 5 photos of the same scene would be killer. I would highly recommend them.

We worked with Seth & Dez in 2012 when they did both an engagement photo shoot and took pictures on the day of our wedding. We were extremely satisfied with the services provided by Zelo Photography, and we would absolutely recommend them to others.

When we were choosing photographers for our wedding, we went to the Bridal Expo at the San Diego Convention Center, and it turned out to be a valuable learning experience. We learned that many photographers take nice pictures...but the style of both the pictures and the photographers themselves will vary quite a bit. The hardest part is figuring out what style will match you and your personality as a couple, but we found that meeting the photographers in person made this process easier. We met photographers who were everything from SuperDuper-OMG-Energetic!! to darker, more introverted and borderline creepy...and then there was Zelo Photography. Seth & Dez were cool and laid back, yet professional and highly talented. We immediately felt comfortable around them, which was important because we had never done a professional "photo shoot" before. Remember that you will spend your ENTIRE wedding day with your photographers!

We have been nothing but pleased with the photographs, many of which are prominently displayed in our home. The work of Zelo Photography will help us remember that special day for the rest of our lives.

Seth and Dez were FANTASTIC. Seriously, I couldn't have asked for a better photography company for our engagement photos. After a bad situation with another photographer who just never showed up for the session, I contacted Zelo photography based on a friend's recommendation. They were super prompt in all correspondence, and for the price, you really get SO much; so we immediately set up a date within a week to meet and take the photos. They had us laughing during most of the shoot, and the photos came out AMAZING. We ended up shooting in two locations (Balboa Park and the beach at La Jolla) based on the vision I had for the photos, which Seth planned perfectly. Even my fiance (someone who dreads getting his picture taken!) said the shoot was tons of fun. After getting our photos back (which was a pretty quick turn around for hundreds of photos!) everyone has complimented us on how beautiful they are. Best decision about my wedding thus far has been using Zelo!

Choosing Seth and Desiree to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We could not be more pleased with our photos. We wanted cool and contemporary pictures, nothing cheesy. They delivered and exceeded all of our expectations. Each time we look at the pictures we are amazed. We found Seth and Desiree to be a real class act. They are professional, kind and easy to get along with. They made us feel comfortable in front of the camera (not easy for a camera phobe such as myself!). They made themselves very accessible. We communicated via phone/email for months before the big day and they always responded promptly. We appreciated these little details while planning our wedding. I would highly recommend this very hip, cool team. You will enjoy working with them and the resulting pictures as much as we did.

We were so glad to have been referred to Seth and Dez. They came all the way out from SoCal up to NorCal wine country to shoot our wedding. On top of that they really understood what we wanted, they canvassed our wedding venue, selected awesome backgrounds, and really did their best to capture the moment and scenery. To this day my wife and I look at our photos and get emotional, not just because of our special moment but because so many of the photos capture the feelings. Instead of the old saying, "a picture says a thousand words", I feel right saying Zelo's pictures capture a thousand feelings. Thanks so much Seth and Dez.

I would not change a single picture that they took, in fact, it was VERY hard for me to narrow down all the pictures that they provided to put them in my album. ALL of my important moments on that day were captured. I hope to use them in the future and I have recommended them to anyone who will listen!

My (then-fiancé-now) husband and I are the WORST at pictures. We've been used to being on the other side of the camera (wannabe photographers that we are) so this was definitely a daunting task, being photographed. We then met Seth + Desiree = Zelo at one of the San Diego Bridal Bazaars and we knew from our first encounter that we were gonna go with them. Not only is their work amazing, their warm and friendly personalities add on to make our engagement photo session fun. We already know our wedding photos are gonna be great! They even showcased a few samples from earlier in the day by the time of our reception! They definitely went above and beyond our already high expectations. Thanks Zelo!

Zelo Photography was our absolute favorite vendor at our October 3, 2009 wedding in Coronado, CA. My husband and I met them at the San Diego Bridal Fair in La Jolla and after chatting with Dez & Seth for five minutes we knew we had to pick them as our photographers. Their hip style, relaxed vibe and excitement for our wedding was just what we were looking for. My husband and I went to college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Zelo drove up to SLO for our engagement session photo shoot. We loved our photos - so unique and fun! The day of our wedding Seth was with the boys and Dez with the girls (pre-ceremony) which was prefect to have both photographers able to capture 'the getting ready' time of both bride and groom. All of our wedding photos were AMAZING!! My dad had reserved a getaway car as a surprise at the end of our reception and Zelo stayed till the end to capture our departure ride. They are the BEST!

I was completely blown away when I saw our photographs for the first time. They were also flexible and went well beyond our expectations. I would choose them over and over again!

Zelo was the perfect match for our wedding weekend. My wife and I planned 3 days of events back on the east coast in Martha's Vineyard. We passively (long trip and all) asked Zelo if they were interested after doing our engagement pictures in La Jolla. They jumped at it and the rest was history. We got a ton of great pictures from the wonderful husband & wife team at Zelo and hope to work with them again in the future.

We had so much fun with Seth and Desiree! They were wonderful to work with. We worked with them for our engagement pictures and wedding pictures both. We did shots at the beach, and the San Diego Temple, and they all turned out AWESOME!!! Even my husband who hates taking photos said it was a lot of fun. Seth & Desiree are so personable and professional. The helped us capture exactly what we will charish for the rest of our lives.
Thank you Seth and Desiree for making our wedding day that much easier. We loved our pictures, and still get so many compliments on them. Many Thanks!!!!

Seth and Desiree did a phenomenal job for us on our wedding day. We knew on the first day that we met with them that they were the right match for us. Seth and Desiree are very comfortable people to be around, they are easy-going, fun and are very creative. They do a wonderful job at listening to your needs and then delivering exactly what you had asked for. Our favorite moments of the day were captured through beautiful photos and we could not have been more pleased. We recommend Zelo Photography to anyone looking for a great experience and high-quality work.

Seth and Des were absolutely wonderful from start to finish. Not only is there work phenomenal they are two of the most friendly and easygoing people you are likely to encounter. On our wedding night these two worked their tails off yet at the same time managed to not be intrusive. Book these guys while you can, as word gets around they are going to get busy.

This was the BEST decision I made about our wedding! I knew that photographs are really the only thing you have left after the wedding has come and gone, and it was important to me to have the very best, which is definitely what we got. Our wedding was three months ago, and I still flip through my albums every week and am amazed by the photos. Seth and Desiree are professional, but also very personal and really listed to what we wanted and the feel we wanted to create at our wedding. I don't have patience for loads of posed family pictures, I wanted more action shots and a "real feel". They did a wonderful job at making sure that we got enough family shots to satisfy the parents, while focusing on preserving the authentic moments of both the ceremony and reception. I also really appreciated all the time they spent with us before booking. We really got a chance to know them, which made it so natural for them to be with us on our wedding day. We were on our honeymoon when our pictures got posted online, and when we got home I was greeted with messages from many friends and relatives who were amazed at the photos. I also really liked the flexibility they provide. You can order directly prints directly from their website, or get them printed on you own. Our guests really liked being able to order right away, and not having to go though me to get the photos they wanted.

Seth and Des are the BOMB. My husband was REALLY picky- REALLY picky about who was going to be our photographers but Seth and Des are so awesome- we didn't think twice! The day of they picked GREAT areas to take pictures that made me look FABULOUS and they were REALLY good with my crazy mom and her picture request. I was so happy they were able to take really good pictures at my reception. They captured great moments, and used techniques that I LOVED. I really liked fish-eye and I wanted a group picture and they combined both to give me a masterpiece! All the night pictures were amazing... They're just amazing, and they are couple which is great because us ladies have a good side and Des knows that!:-) They have great ideas and really work to make your pictures amazing!

I cannot recommend them enough, they are awesome!

Their flexibility, creativity and level of professionalism, not to mention the SHEER TALENT that gives their work a fresh, artistic edge that no one else we considered hiring could touch - makes Zelo a perfect ten. I would hire them again in a heartbeat and at least 3 other engaged couples have hired them as well - based solely on seeing our photos! Zelo rocks the house.

Seth and Dez were amazing to work with! They made us feel so comfortable in what can be a very uncomfortable situation. My husband was nervous to be in front of the camera but they had him calm and comfortable in no time! They were so professional and always responded to my email/phone calls very quickly. They made me feel as if I was the only bride in the world! Our engagement and wedding pictures were BEAUTIFUL - all my friends were amazed and envious! One of my girlfriends loved thier work so much that she is flying them to chicago for her wedding! As a team they work flawlessly - Dez followed myself and my bridesmaid and Seth was with the boys. They truly captured every moment of our wonderful day without us even realizing they were there. They are very reasonably priced for the high quality of work they put out! Having worked in the wedding industry myself, I can say they are two of the best photographers in town!!

We hired Zelo Photography to shoot not only our wedding, but events preceding it. We wanted to take a few engagement type pictures before the actual ceremony in Balboa park and downtown. They were more than willing to accommodate us and our busy schedule that day. Seth and Dez were able to document all aspects of the wedding and ceremony perfectly. Since there were two of them we got a full spectrum of photos capturing every detail of the event. The quality of the pictures was great as well. The price was very reasonable especially since we got two photographers, not just one. Overall, my husband and I are very pleased with the service Zelo provided.

My husband and I were married in Sonoma, California in August 2012. Seth and Desiree drove up from San Diego to photograph our wedding, which was really going the extra mile! They had experience with our wedding site and really knew cool places to take pictures.
During the wedding they were non-obtrusive but also instructive (letting us know how to get the best shots). They blended into the wedding and we always felt really comfortable having them around.
The pictures that we got from Seth and Des were amazing. They were so beautiful with very unique shots. There was nothing too "posed" and everyone complimented us on the way the pictures came out.

We have since received dozens of compliments on our wedding photos. Choosing Zelo as our wedding photographers was one of the best wedding decisions we made.

Their style of photography is more fun and candid, capturing emotions in a way that most photographers don't. We loved their quirky and laid back personality, but most importantly we loved their style and finished product. My husband and I were so happy that we made the investment in Zelo - they captured our wedding beautifully!

We met Zelo at a bridal bazaar and instantly felt some type of connection. After meeting with them, we knew we clicked with their very fun personalities! Unfortunately it wasn't until after contracts and deposits were sent did we find out that they were not the right decision for us. Planning a wedding is stressful so having the right vendors is key. Although our pictures were good, we probably would have been happy with another photographer. Response time was SLOW and when planning a wedding, you want to have vendors that respond to questions within a day or two at most. That was probably the most frustrating part, especially when we saw them actively post content online while they still had't responded to us. The quality of pictures was great and for the most part turned out well. Unfortunately when we got the pictures back, we had a ton of pictures of us (obviously) but barely any of our family and friends which we had asked them for. To add to that, they showed up in jeans and a a plaid shirt to our wedding while everyone else was dressed up in formal wear. There are a lot of photographers out there. Although Zelo gave us some great quality photos, another photographer could have done the same. If we were to do it all over we would have researched a little more before choosing to move forward with them.

Zelo Photography responded with the following comments:

We're happy to hear this reviewer feels the quality of the photos we gave them was great. That's what we aim to do, although we wish we knew more about why they later felt we were not the right decision for them, especially considering the connection we apparently had from the start (?).

Occasionally we do get bogged down with things like a very full inbox or back-to-back-to-back photo sessions. We also work out of town frequently, so that may be why we weren't able to respond to this person immediately.

We will also post-date blog entires and we have social media accounts connected to the blog, so while it may look like we're posting frequently that may not really be the case, so most likely it's something we actually posted several days or weeks in advance.

As for additional photos of family and friends, we took the same amount as we do at every wedding and we're sorry to hear it still wasn't enough for this Bride or Groom. We've never received a request to take "more than the normal amount" of family & friends so we're a little confused by their comment.

Finally, we would really appreciate it if this Bride or Groom didn't leave false information in their review. In our 15 years shooting weddings we have NEVER worn jeans to an event. NEVER. Maybe they hit the champagne a little early that day so their vision wasn't 100% but wearing jeans to a formal event is something we simply don't do.

Again, we're happy to hear they felt the quality of their photos was great. Mission accomplished. We just wish they would have addressed any issues they were concerned about before leaving an anonymous, inaccurate review.
