Why Zarayah Weissrock?
Choosing a wedding photographer is a HUGE decision. You, as a "to be," is looking for someone experienced, knowledgeable, creative, that stylistically matches you and most importantly: has a personality you enjoy. From day one, it has been my primary goal to offer quality and accessibility to everyone, provide a safe and loving space, and the highest level service possible. I am not a robot, and each and every client is far more than a transaction, I am privileged to be able to share once in a lifetime experiences with each of my couples; I don't take that for granted.
It is not beyond me that other extremely qualified photographers exist in our area- I revere them. I follow their social media accounts, I read their blogs, I love their work and I am a better person and photographer for the people I have met along the way. So what makes me any different than anyone else?
Foremost, I am not a hobbyist. This is my career. I have invest a great deal of time, money, and effort into acquiring premium equipment, software, and training. Hobbyist are wonderful; I have met wildly talented folks that can work wonders with a point and shoot camera. However, I am able to offer a full range of extra mile services because I live and breathe weddings. All document signing, payment, and delivery of galleries is automated online. I am able to offer high resolution photos and streamlined onboarding because I've committed to this line of work. I have created what I call the accessible luxury experience. As a full-time wedding photographer, I am working with a large volume of couples, and I want each of my clients to feel that they are heard and understood in their dreams. I have prepared efficient schedules with consistent communication. I have a virtual book with tips and tricks for planning, a customizable wedding budget template, guest template, and access to a wide range of vendors in the Louisville KY area.
What you can expect:
I have refined my collaboration style to make each step of wedding planning less daunting. As a potential client, you can first expect a discovery call. This will help us determine what your vision looks like, I will walk through a high level view of your big day to make recommendations on what sort of coverage would be the best for you.
I work with clients that I can give the best experience, I understand that everyone has different styles, personalities, and their favored methods; it is important these things are cohesive in order to have the best experience possible! Though I strive for professionalism, I am definitely a big personality, I love to work with couples that are willing to laugh, be silly and be in close communication. I find that the more time we spend getting to know each other before the "I Do" the better your big day will be! You will absolutely catch me getting low with a camera in hand on the dance floor, I love to blend into the party and I can't do that from the sidelines.
If the decision is made to move forward, my client will receive a contract outlining what you can expect of me and what is expected of the client.
I offer each of my couples a customized day of timeline, or if you are working with a wedding planner, I happily coordinate with them to make sure all goes as seamlessly as possible. I will help you navigate scheduling your shoots and keep open communication through the duration of your wedding planning.
Lots of folks feel awkward about having their photos taken, and I absolutely love bringing people out of their shell! I come with a full range of assistance- attire advice, hair and makeup styling, posing expertise, off the beaten path photoshoot locations. I have dedicated myself to accessibility to my clients and continuously learning and seeking betterment of myself and and eager to try new things- I am here to actualize fantasies: if you can dream it, we can do it.
