Coming from a 20 year background of photography including HELLO MAGAZINE, Rod married Bridal consultant Julie in 2005. It was when they were trying to find their own wedding photographer that they both realised that there was something missing, that little something extra…the wedding X-Factor!!
In 2007, after Julie completed her photographic training, they formed Zest to fill that gap and have been photographing dozens of weddings every year in Sussex,Surrey, Hampshire, Suffolk.
By providing 2 professional photographers for every wedding, a couple benefit in so many ways. A female photographer with the girls in the morning and a man with the boys to capture the preparations. 2 different angles of the ceremony itself. Traditional group shots blended with documentary ‘fly on the wall’ shots capturing the mayhem, fun and laughter that goes on during this segment. A male and a female perspective on the day. The list goes on and of course, being married themselves, a couple can be sure that Rod and Julies every waking moment for the few days leading up to the clients wedding will be spent formulating, discussing, working out and planning that wedding – not just 9-5 but pretty much from tea and ginger nuts in bed in the morning to lights off at night!
