Zelo Photography is a down-to-earth husband/wife team based in Escondido, California, but they are willing to travel. With two decades of shooting weddings under their belt, they're in love with each other and in love with giving their couples awesome photos that will last a lifetime. Their skill, creativity, and ability to adapt and think on their feet allow them to capture the fun and emotion of your special day in the cool, casual, and classic style they've become known for.

Services Offered
Zelo Photography offers several collections for couples to choose from. They can also customize something just for you if one of the pre-made collections doesn't quite fit what you need. When you hire them, you get them. They don't have a whole bunch of shooters that get farmed out to different events. It's just them doing the shooting, editing, emailing, and delivering. Since it's just them, they only book one event per day, which allows them to give you and your big day all the attention it deserves!

Products Offered
They offer various products including flush-mount albums, digital files, prints and canvases.

    Wonderful to work with!

    We met Seth and Dez at the Bridal Bazaar and liked that they came across as low key and not trying too hard to be on point with the latest trends. Their photography style was classic, which we knew would age well and not look dated in 10-20 years. We met up with them one on one and found they were as easy going as they seemed (which is great for people who aren't necessarily comfortable in front of a camera).

    We hired them for both our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. During our engagement shoot, Seth and Dez were super patient with us and helped us look relaxed and natural. I'm not particularly photogenic, so when we got the photos, I was shocked by how many great photos there were of us (70+ that I loved)! We used them for both our save the date as well as our wedding guestbook!

    On the big day, Seth and Dez were prepared and patient as we did almost all of our photos before the ceremony. They worked wonderfully with us (no surprise there), but also did great with our families who kept wandering off and the kids who weren't fans of the camera. They were also super accommodating of family who was taking photos with their phones, which was much appreciated.

    Additionally, Seth and Dez were unobtrusive during the reception. They were capturing the important moments without constantly pulling my husband and I around, so we were able to visit with guests and enjoy the evening. We haven't received our photos (as it's only been a couple days), but if they are anything like the engagement photos, we are in for such a treat!

    If you are looking for a wedding photographer, I would encourage you to meet with Seth and Dez at Zelo Photography. You get two professional photographers (rather than one and an assistant) that are lovely to work with and do a fantastic job!

    Amazing photographers, would highly recommend!

    I loved working with Seth and Desiree two years ago during our wedding! I'm reviewing our photos (again) and finding so much of the joy and beauty of the wedding day captured in their work. They were so good about finding gorgeous lighting and back drops throughout the day and mixing candids with directed photos. My husband and I are not naturals in front of the camera and were worried about feeling awkward, but none of that was an issue- we honestly had such a great time working with them. They were so good at providing direction, were unintrusive, calm and had a great sense of humor. They also scouted out the sites ahead of time and their level of preparation showed in how organized they were the day of. We couldn't be happier with the memories we have now, from photos with family and friends to really beautiful photos the rings, venue and all the little details we didn't get to see the day of. Cannot speak highly enough of them - I only regret posting this so late!

    Perfect photos

    Dez and Seth were the perfect fit for us as our wedding photographers. They instantly made us feel comfortable and natural, like friends. The dynamic of having a couple take photos for your wedding also just feels right! The photos turned out just amazing and we were so, so happy with them. Everyone in my family loved looking through them. I would describe their style as the perfect combination between real-life and stylized. They also have a way of shooting that really takes advantage of light in all its forms - we got great photos throughout the day - from morning posed photos to beautiful dusk magic hour to night shots on the dancefloor. I would 100% recommend Zelo!
