Established in 2009, Zara has shot well over 100 Wedding celebrations, ranging from Barbados to Ireland. During this time she has found herself placing emphasis on the pure honesty of a Wedding day experience. By feeling what unfolds around her and responding skilfully and creatively, the photographs beautifully represent your personal Wedding day story in all it's being. She lives it. Her manner is gentle, focussed and smiley. The name itself, Ginger Veil, tries to play on her working style, as if her own mass of red hair acts as a veil, her shooting presence being diffused quietly behind it!  

 

Zara also freelances as a Digital Operator for Advertising, Advertorial, Point of Sale, Catalogue and Editorial shoots, which include Fashion, Celebrity Portraits, Interiors and Still Life work. Sample clients include Asda, Boden, Conde Nast, Clarks, Cotton Traders, Ellesse, Esquire, Fortnum&Mason, GHD, Good Housekeeping, Google, GQ, John Lewis, Jo Loves, Laura Ashley, M&S, Next, Notonthehighstreet, Specsavers, Ossie Clark, Primark, Russian Tatler, Tatler UK, Toast, Umbro, Vanity Fair UK, Vogue UK and Woman&Home. 

 

Through this area of her work, she has been fortunate enough to directly observe and learn first hand from renowned Photographers of our time such as David BAILEY, Nadav KANDER, Annie LEIBOVITZ and Mario TESTINO. On separate occasions, working professionally around celebrity figures such as Victoria BECKHAM, Colin FIRTH, Wayne ROONEY and Vivienne WESTWOOD. These jobs also throw a lot of travel into the mix, with regular location shoots over in Majorca, Menorca, Miami, South Africa and Sweden. 

 

For the foreseeable future, Zara hopes to focus her work more simply on what she feels to be the two most important connections in life, Love and the Universe (la-di-da!). She has recently begun adapting her Photographic skills to explore Astronomy in her early thirties. Deep Space Photography is a dabbling new hobby and 'Deep Wedding Love' (shameful cheese!) is a grateful career. The work produced for wedding clients is so genuinely appreciated and lives such a long life span that it is most rewarding.
