Oh my where do I start, first off I just love Zay! She is brilliant with the lens. My 85mil experience was awesome, from the moment she pulled up the energy was beyond welcoming & just really set the vibe. I had such a great time during the shoot and to top it off the photos came out incredible! I literally look at the images and can remember that moment she captured. The overall series is so unique and just so happy to have been a part of it.
