Thanks to PW, I came across Zenia as I searched for a wedding photographer when I got engaged two years ago. She had the style I loved and at a great price! She was the first vendor I booked!
Our engagement session took place at Disneyland and our wedding day was a full day's event. Zenia was a trooper and survived through both days with such grace.
Zenia was very responsive and clear as we kept in touch leading up to the photoshoots. She's super laid back and made it easy to smile and pose in front of a professional camera. She's very personable with her clients and it shows through all the happiness and love shining through each photo.
Zenia is a rockin' dream!
Zenia is absolutely amazing. We can say without hesitation that she was the perfect choice for us. We can’t wait to see the moments captured as she worked her magic on our wedding day.
Zenia also took our engagement photo pictures. Originally, my fiancé wasn’t thrilled about the idea because we’ve had bad experiences with other photographers… but Zenia made us feel comfortable, confident, and downright special! The pictures were amazing… and she really captured how we felt about each other. I used her pictures for everything… our wedding website, the programs, the registration table….etc.
The extra little things (and BIG things) she did to go that extra million miles beyond what could be expected didn’t go unnoticed. She was there with us from the beginning of the day… right to the end. The dinner service was running a little late, and she was supposed to leave… but she stayed longer to get pictures of the cake-cutting. She definitely played a huge role in making our day special.
This review is incredibly long overdue, but I feel obligated to write a review for Zenia, because she did such a great job for us on our wedding day. Zenia shot our wedding day in August of 2010. She was one of the first vendors I booked, mostly because I loved her portfolio immediately, and was astounded by her affordable pricing (given that this is SoCal!). Our pictures turned out so well, and I couldn't be happier with them, but in some ways I wish I could have hired Zenia NOW because I have followed her work since our wedding and I have to say, it is even more incredible now than when she shot our wedding. She clearly has a desire to constantly work at her craft! Her pricing has gone up since we booked her, but I think it is completely justified and it is STILL quite affordable comparatively speaking and especially for the quality of her work! I love to visit her blog every so often and see what's new. She has a way of capturing the best "little moments" and I know from personal experience that on the day of our wedding she was able to do this seamlessly, without manufacturing the moments or even drawing attention to the fact that the camera was around. She was always highly professional in my experiences with her and I would recommend her highly!
Zenia is the best photographer I could have ever dreamed of for my wedding! She was so kind and ready to be helpful throughout engagement, was a doll the day of my wedding, and (most importantly) captured my big day in a magical and unbelievable way! She is sooo affordable, and gave us all of the digital photographs in high quality on discs as part of the package! That is unheard of! Not to mention the fancy details she puts into things... our image discs came in a beautiful, personalized, leather, three-fold case... I felt like a princess getting it in the mail with my picture on the front! We could not be happier with our pictures, and everyone I've showed them to says the same thing: Zenia is the best!
I found Zenia on Project Wedding and fell in love with her style. After our first meeting I knew that she was just the right person to photograph us on one of the most important days of our lives. We had our engagement session and she put us at ease almost immediately. She sent us a dvd with our BEAUTIFUL photos on it (yes it came in a cute little box -- it was truly adorable) and the slideshow was so much fun. I absolutely can't wait for our wedding!
I had my engagement session with Zenia last May 2008 and it was just soooo much fun. She made me feel so comfortable and was very encouraging in every shoot. The pictures turned out awesome and she provided a slideshow for our family/friends and our CD of pictures (it was in a cute box). We have her booked for our wedding and I just can’t wait.
Other than that … she is very professional, responsive, understanding, friendly and passionate. I absolutely recommend her.
Zenia is an incredibly talented photographer, and we are so lucky that we were able to book her when we did! She did an outstanding job with our engagement pictures, and her coverage of the wedding was spectacular as well. We were a little concerned about only having one photographer for our wedding, as her contract specified that we couldn't hire a second, but she assured us that she offers complete coverage, and she was right. She gave us a nice mix of candid, photo-journalistic shots and traditional posed family portraits (which we knew would be important to both of our parents), and we were very comfortable working with her. My husband has always hated getting his picture taken, so I was particularly impressed that Zenia was able to make him feel comfortable enough to look relaxed and smile the whole time. Shortly after we booked her, Zenia stopped accepting new clients for a while to prepare for her new baby, but I believe she is open for booking again with limited availability.
Overall, we are absolutely thrilled with Zenia's work and would highly recommend her to anyone. She captured the wedding beautifully and made us look fantastic, and we will treasure those pictures forever.
Zenia is awesome! She did my boudoir pictures, and they came out amazing. She selected some photos and and created a book I could give to my fiance as a gift. It was perfect, and she even made me a cd that she placed in a cute gift box. I highly recommend Zenia. She is extremely sweet and fun to work with.
I discovered Zenia through the now defunct labridezilla.com when she was just getting started in the wedding photography business. Even back then, it was evident that she had raw talent from looking through her portfolio and observing the strength of her technique in challenging low light conditions, a true test to gauge photography skill. Zenia has always been super responsive to our emails and phone calls. She even came early on the wedding day and seemed to be everywhere at the same time, remaining calm even when we weren't, capturing moments here and there, and constantly thinking of creative poses and angles. Her turnaround time is very quick; she processed our wedding photos and created an online slideshow for us in only three weeks. She is truly a standout in an extremely competitive business and I also give her my wholehearted recommendation.
Great price and great to work with.
Zenia did our engagement pictures and will be doing our wedding in June as well. She has a great eye. She is such a talented photographer and is still pretty affordable. Our engagement pictures came out great and I can't wait for her to photograph our wedding.
*Update* We had our wedding, and Zenia was even more amazing than I could have imagined. Everyone loved her. She was extremely professional and friendly. The pictures came out so beautiful. I knew how talented she was, but she even exceeded my expectations. My mom cried when she saw Zenia's pictures. She is so talented.
Zenia did both my engagement pictures (December 2007) and my wedding (June 2008). I cannot praise her enough. She was the sweetest, friendliest, most helpful vendor I booked. She was polite and accommodating with my family during the group shots (quite the feat, as I had little cousins all the way up through elderly grandparents!), was unobtrusive during the ceremony, and got some wonderful shots at the reception.
I really don't know how to put into words my love for Zenia. She is SO talented. I think what says it best is that at the reception, when my husband and I would go up to tables to greet our guests, the conversation often went, "Congratulations! Who is your photographer? She's amazing! I've never seen such a wonderful wedding photographer!"
The slideshow she sent us with teaser pictures made my father-in-law tear up. That says a lot! Absolutely book her if she's available--you won't regret it.
I found Zenia On Project Wedding and set up an appointment to meet her possible booking her for my wedding. I drove forty minuets to her area planning to meet her at her place but, when I was outside of her house I didn’t feel safe. I called her right away asking her to meet me at a diner around the corner form her house where it was not as secluded. When I spoke to her then she was completely unprofessional and stated that she could not do that, and she could not meet me unless I went to her place. I realized I didn’t want to hire a person who wasn’t willing to work with me so I turned around a drove home.
There's absolutely nothing bad I could say about Zenia. She took amazing pictures, was very professional, and delivered services exactly as described. She is also a very nice person and very accomodating. She traveled to my wedding in Pismo Beach from L.A. and was very affordable. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her.
Zenia was GREAT! We had some correspondence early on and I definitely felt like I was in good hands. I didn't meet Zenia until the morning of my wedding but she was exactly what I thought, a very nice person who takes amazing pictures and made me feel completely comfortable. My pictures came out GREAT!!
Zenia is Amazing, She is very talented and skilled. Her photos come out flawless and she pays close attention to detail. She always responded to my emails and was capable of answering any questions I had. Zenia was such a sweetheart through everything and when she sent me my disc of pics from our engagement shoot it came in its own cute case with a pink ribbon around it. She was our favorite vendor and I cannot recommend her enough.
I have to definitely agree. Zenia is an absolute goldmine. I had her do our engagement pictures too... and they came out so beautiful. She's affordable and very professional. I wish i could use her for my wedding too but she's booked on our date! :(
