Give me a lingering West Australian sunset, and a Bride & Groom in love, and I’m a happy woman. Even though I have been lucky enough to travel to some incredible corners of the world, our magical light here is a huge inspiration for my photography.

I have completed a Diploma in Photo Media and then further studied for a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication. Wanderlust got the better of me and I studied even further in Budapest to develop my skills in Fine Art.

I like people and I like stories, so getting to witness real love every weekend and curating that story with my camera is one of my favourite parts about shooting weddings. Being asked to join a couple on their most important day is something I take both great responsibility and joy in. So, if I get a little caught up in the emotion of it all, forgive me.  

One of the most enjoyable parts of my job is to also watch these gorgeous families grow.  Engagement sessions, turn into weddings, then pregnancy shoots, and to new little family photo sessions. 

I have also been lucky to have been featured in Conde Nast’s Brides Magazine.

My photographs of new mothers with their newborns are on permanent display at the International Museum of Women in San Francisco. I have been fortunate enough to feature on the cover of several books in the USA, Poland and Canada.

I am proud to have been awarded a number of Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) awards in the Wedding Category.

But enough about me, I want to hear about you two! Where did you meet? How long have you been smitten? Was it love at first sight?

So drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you!
Zilia.


Testimonials.

'What can I say, Zilia was one of the best parts of our special day, it wouldn't have been the same without her. We had a minor incident on the day with illness,.. you would think there would be some panicking – trauma – maybe a bit of stress from the photographers point of view. With Zilia it was the opposite. She spent the whole morning calming both of us – giving us a lot of perspective – and making sure the day was about us and only us (which is a lot harder than it seems!). She was nothing short of a miracle,.. The photos are just stunning, she captured every single moment. We are so grateful. I cannot recommend anyone more highly, she was an absolute pleasure to work with'. Laura & Ryan

'I can't recommend Zilia enough for anyone planning a wedding. Zilia's work is simply amazing and she is an absolute professional. It is clear that Zilia loves her work. She went above and beyond for us, helping to secure great locations in Subiaco for some spectacular and unique shots.
