Vendor Spotlight Kathy Ziegler Photography


I had the pleasure of spending some time with Kathy Ziegler of Kathy Ziegler Photography this week! First, a big thank you to Carry Ann of Fresh by CarryAnn for passing along my information to such a great wedding professional!

Kathy is a San Diego & Nashville area wedding photographer. VOTED ‘The Knot 2007 Best of Weddings Pick, her work was a breath of fresh air!

I love photography that is fresh, classic & timeless...not to mention she is a true professional! By the time our meet & greet ended I felt like I'd known her for a while....not to mention she has almost convinced me into getting a puppy! Oh she is a huge animal lover & creates fabulous animal portraits!

Nashville Brides & Readers, I introduce Kathy Ziegler!

  • What inspired you to start your own photography business? I’ve always been the photographer of the family & enjoyed shooting people more than ”things”, so when my life was in a vocational transition I decided the time was right to go for it as a business.

  • Outside of photography, what are some of your favorite things to do? I’m obsessed with horses & animals in general. I’m enjoying learning natural horsemanship though I’ve had horses all my life.

  • What is your favorite moment of a wedding/bridal shoot? I LOVE shooting the romantics & also truly enjoy great, touching toasts & personal vows during the ceremony.

  • Where do you find your inspiration? My clients themselves, years of doing this work, viewing people’s work I admire & attending workshops. I am true to my own style, as you have to be to make your own mark, but always stretching & learning.

  • Name one thing that you use daily that you can't live without? My computer, but then, without my camera I’d be sunk too=P

  • How are your services different from other photographers? Working with natural light as much as possible & creating personal, intimate images that will hopefully stand the test of time. I make sure that the images I deliver are beautifully exposed & color corrected without overdoing it.

  • What's your average price (packages) for your wedding shoots? The average tends to be $3900-$4500 for a pretty complete package with a beautiful album & all the most important stuff included.

  • Any qualities or words of wisdom that you want to give new brides in selecting a photographer? There are 3 really important factors I think – 1. Do you like their style of photography? 2. Do you click with this person & trust their skills? You have to meet or talk with them to discover this. 3. And is their pricing doable for you? Photography is all you have when the big day is over & you want to love, love, love your pictures & not have regrets!

Take a peek at some of her classy shots!
