HI! I'M OMAR Z.

SEEK FREEDOM

Stories make us

I'm from the coast of Perú, surrounded by sound, cultural diversity, and culinary excellence. A place where there is love in every corner, darkness in every light, where latin ancestry transcends history-full of war, full of peace, full of life. A place replete with stories that make the heart pound.

THAT'S WHY I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DRAWN TO ART. ART IS WOVEN INTO EVERYTHING FROM MY LIFE EXPERIENCE TO THE THINGS THAT I DO.

BUT THERE WAS A TIME I FELT LOST

I used to work in a bank. Finance was fun, but it lacked passion. I felt disconnected from my true self.

So I left everything, and went on a trip. More like a journey.

A life changing one.

That's when I began to define myself, to know myself better.

I DECIDED TO FULLY DEDICATE MYSELF TO THE ART OF THE IMAGE AND POUR MY SOUL INTO THIS WORK.

I started documenting what I saw on the streets.

My travels took me to many corners of the world: Asia, South America, North America, where I witnessed different expressions of love and learned from them.

These places taught me that love doesn't have a single expression. Love is multifaceted.

THIS REALIZATION LED ME TO DIVE DEEPER INTO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY.

Because wedding photography has everything that I love about photography:

Documentary:
The drive to be brave, take risks, and learn to capture authentic essence in the moment.
I LEARNED AND LIVED THIS FROM PRACTICING STREET
Composition:
The art of posing and creating images, planning the structure of your photographs. In wedding photography there is the perfect combination of posed and spontaneous images.
Creativity:
At weddings anything can happen, and that is where creativity helps you to adapt and create new opportunities out of the unexpected and turn them into art.

In the art of wedding photography I found my home and a constant adventure. I get an adrenaline rush every time that pushes me to create in different ways, because each person has a new story to explore. I love the unusual, unique, and unexpected life that photography gives me.

THOSE THREE WORDS RESONATE DEEPLY WITH ME:
UNIQUE - UNUSUAL - UNEXPECTED

BEING A TEAM

SOMETHING IMPORTANT THAT SETS US APART IS THAT WE ARE A TEAM. We are not a single individual, we are a community of creatives who strive for efficiency, quality and sensitivity in our work.

My story connects with very talented people who have made this company what it is today.

Let me introduce them to you:

André

Designer

André is my total opposite. He is a computer nerd who loves books...

Brittany

Business Manager

You don't know this, but Brittany is the reason I left everything...

Gabriel

Photographer

Gabriel is our other creative genius. He started as a second shooter...

André

André is my total opposite. He is a computer nerd who loves books, studying, and academia. He loves to spend his time at home learning more about design, communication, and editing. His photo editing prowess never disappoints. Despite our differences, he is someone close to my heart and like a brother to me (not just like a brother, we are actually family).

André brings his critical and studied eye to session planning and development, as well as image editing. He has a background in fashion photography, giving him the expertise to produce images of the highest quality. I wholeheartedly trust him. His commitment to Omar Zeta always shines through and is reflected in the family love that unites us.

Brittany

You don't know this, but Brittany is the reason I left everything. She made me realize that the life I was living was not the life I wanted. She taught me so much simply by watching how she lived her own life—connecting with people and going from one adventure to the next. Despite the fact that I had a good job in a bank, she made me long for what she experienced and helped me reconnect with the person I wanted to be. My admiration was so great that I fell in love. In wanting to be with her, I began to question what I wanted for my life. So thanks to her and our love for each other, I was driven to pursue a more purposeful life.

Now, together we run this company. She is the soul of our projects and coordinates and schedules our sessions and helps me create the ideal atmosphere with our lighting equipment. One thing you should know is that when you send us an email, more often than not, she will be the one answering. So all the kind and thoughtful messages you receive will be from her, projecting the same magic that made me pursue my dreams.

Gabriel

Gabriel is our other creative genius. He started as a second shooter and is now our second primary photographer thanks to the way his vision aligns with ours and that of our brand. Gabriel’s way of looking at situations from a different angle offers a unique perspective that makes our final products even more attractive.

Gabriel arrived in Richmond three years ago and is one of the people I am most grateful to have met. He appreciates good food, German soccer, and loves art as much as he loves cats (which is to say a lot!). A graduate in graphic design, Gabriel is the kind of person who is happy to look up at the sky on a starry night and is someone you will always be thankful to have crossed paths with.
