Today we get to have a chat about Zachary Hunt Photography, serving Austin and the surrounding areas of Texas. Zach has been with APW since late last year, and in that time he’s gone from gifted to world-take-notice. What gets me about Zach, is that his pictures don’t look like anyone else’s. They’ve got an art book quality, a moody-ness, a sense of humor, and an evocative tone that I could pick out of a line up. And that, kids, is what talent is: having your own, specific voice.
Today Zach is celebrating shooting his first APW wedding, which he described to me as a milestone of sorts. And what a wedding it was. Zach described it this way, “Jennah and Gary’s wedding was an unbelievable experience. The couple was so kind and down to earth. They wanted a photographer who could capture their personalities without feeling a significant amount of pressure to be anyone other than themselves.” Zach told me that this dovetails exactly with his goals as a photographer. He said, “My main philosophy is to allow the couple a certain easiness around the camera to simply enjoy their day while capturing beautiful, candid moments. My second shooter Mike Andrick shares this philosophy as well. I feel we make a great team. And because of this, Mike is included on all of my packages.”
And you know Zach’s hitting his marks because he gets reviews like this from the APW bride in question, Jennah:
If I ever have goldfish, I’m naming them Zach and Mike. And if those goldfish die, I’ll get more and name the new goldfish Zach and Mike as well. Because you guys are just that rad, for realz!
And yes. She’s catching a raw chicken in that picture. In her wedding dress. As you do.
Zachary Hunt Photography is affordable, with prices starting at $2000 (way less than he’s worth, if I’m being frank). Zach is based in Austin, TX and San Antonio, and travels to Houston and Dallas for a low fee. And lucky for y’all, Zach likes working with APW couples so much that he’s offering a 10% discount to APW couples who book him before the end of July.
But it’s not just Zachary Hunt Photography‘s wedding work that’s doing its part, it’s his excellent engagement and portrait work, which is honest, and emotional and beautifully composed. Plus, his black and white work is so on point, that you’d think that was all he did… till you see his vibrant use of color.
As for what else Zach’s up to? Well, he and his second shooter Mike are working on a photography blog together featuring women and their bicycles. Zach says, “These photo sessions allow me to use my medium format film camera which in turn makes me a more well rounded photographer. I hope in the near future to incorporate film photography into the weddings I shoot simply because I love the format so much.” APW Texas? Free Wedding Grad post goes to the first one of you that convinces Zach to shoot film at your wedding.
So, go have a chat with Zach. And then send me your wedding, yes? I can’t wait to see it, and that’s a fact.
