Birds of Passage are wanderers who pass through a place without staying for too long.

They are people who understand life is a journey, not a destination.

They are free to soar on their own but have realized the strength in flying together.

They choose to stay together, though winds may blow in opposite directions

We are Zach and Olivia and we are Birds of Passage.

When we created Birds of Passage, we wanted to develop a media company that fully captures these beautiful moments on photo and film. We realize that not every photographer is perfect for every couple. Every couple deserves to have a photographer that they vibe with!

Our ideal couple is adventurous, ready to hike to get the perfect photo, and not afraid to get their dress a little dirty. We aren’t just here to show up with a camera and shoot. We’re here to make best friends with complete strangers and become emotionally invested in your story. We believe love is beautiful and when done right, is truly life’s greatest adventure.

We are Zach and Olivia and we are Birds of Passage.

In late 2017, we instantly bonded over our unique journeys to Africa. Right away, we knew that we wanted our life to be full of exciting adventures and intricate storytelling. Olivia is a freelance filmmaker and Zach is an independent photographer and we have both worked on international projects all over the world. Though it was our adventures that brought us together, it was our passion for storytelling that made us decide to create a wedding collective. We began working together in 2018 and partnered on a number of weddings all over the country. In August of 2019, I (Zach) proposed to Olivia at one of our favorite places on earth, the Matterhorn in Switzerland. We are also enjoying the adventure of planning our wedding for late October 2020. So with our passion for marriage, along with our experience working together and similar creative vision, we look forward to diving into your story and creating keepsakes you will be able to share and remember forever.
