Underwater Engagement Photos

Mat called me and asked if I would be up for doing part of their engagement session under water. Honestly, I didn’t think twice. I was in. Mat got his suit for pennies to the dollar at an estate sale and Kenzie picked her dress up at a local thrift store. Things could only go up from there!

Underwater housing has been added to the arsenal! I’m excited for all that is to come with this new family member! That being said, if you’re down for spending some time under water for your session then I’ll be there! Seriously. I dare you.

  • Chris Fox - Carl they’re amazing. The shot of them diving together is just stunning. The bubbles are really cool and almost a leading line kind of composition element. Ha. It’s just awesome.

Sean, Allie & Zuri

Have you high-fived a Park Ranger lately? During the 2013 government shutdown Sean and Allie got married under the Golden Gate Bridge, which happened to be closed and off-limits. Not only was there a drug bust right before they tied the knot but this Park Ranger rallied and assured them that they could carry on, marry up and enjoy life with their people on closed lands. Cheers to the good hearted!

Sean, Allie and their daughter Zuri traveled from Zurich to San Francisco for their wedding. I was psyched to spend the day with them and their family. Here are a handful of my favorite photos from the day.

I also got to work with Ted and Alanna of Modern 8 Films at this wedding. We worked together a few years back at a wedding in Beaver Creek, Colorado so it was pretty rad seeing them again! They document weddings on 8mm film. They’re pretty incredible, check them out! www.modern8films.com

Matt + Annabel

“And maybe you’ll find someone to lay some roots down next to you. Be more like the trees and less like the clouds stop movin’ around.” – Ryan Adams

These photos were taken on the land that Matt grew up on. The same land where Matt and Annabel plan to build a home of their own. Generations of roots have been laid here and it’s incredible to see how psyched they are to lay their own.

Why I Made My New Site

www.carlzoch.com

I’m psyched to launch this new website! It has been fermenting over the last year and a half on a handful of hard drives as I’ve been traveling around and collecting these beautiful stories.

This site exists for two reasons. First, as an expression of the beautiful human beings throughout these pages that have chosen to do life together. And secondly, it exists as an encouragement. Like the friend whispering into your ear to “do it” or “make the jump.” I’m encouraging you to do the same.

Do what you love with the ones you love. 

In whatever way you want to express that, I hope to be there to document it.

Enjoy life!
