WELCOME TO ZORZ STUDIOS EXPERIENCE


 


Studio's creative director and lead photographer, Ed Hafizov, is a multiple Fearless Photographer™ award winner, named among the top 50 US and top 10 New York wedding photographers, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week photographer, winner of Adobe contests, Grand-Prix winner of PDN/Rangefinder contest, and featured by Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle et al. The studio is a distinguished member of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style‘s Platinum List.

We do not uses the words "original" and "creative" lightly... To us, they do not stop at "pretty". There are "re-creative" artists who imitate and follow the ideas, whether by adopting or copying, and there are those whom they follow, who religiously seek out and forge those ideas, afraid of imitating themselves, let alone others. While we also get inspiration from various forms of art, we strive to be the latter and dare to believe that the studio's portfolio is the unpretentious and flame-resistant proof.

If you are looking for an unbeaten coverage of your stylish collection, character study, or event day with an artistic flare, fashionable touch, and passionate yet unobtrusive story-telling, Zorz Studios is your expert! Studio owner's unique artistic background will allow you to blend classical charm with contemporary art and breathe life and emotions into your dashing photography collection.

Take the boredom and routine out of your photographs. Contact us and let your excitement out! We will take good care of it

  • “Gorgeous! Implacable! Tasteful! Artistic! Professional! Thoughtful! Beautiful! … My husband almost died on a spot when he saw a picture of me... I wanted to ask you for information regarding maternity shoots. We are due, mostly because of what your Boudoir session did to my husband."

  • "It is an extremely rare occurrence that one comes upon talent that has no boundaries in its vision. I consider my collaboration with Ed Hafizov, Owner of Zorz Studios, as nothing short of a transcendent experience. Ed had come into my life at a time when I was readying my first collection "Je Ne Regrette Rien" for photography. I had something grander in mind than the "typical": I wanted to capture, not only the collection itself, but create an enchanted illusion of spectacular characters with soul and beauty out of each of my hats. Ed listened carefully, observed and expanded my vision to a divine level of photographic perfection that I thought unattainable previously. He possesses an astonishingly productive work ethic and a reliability, coupled with the more important fact that he is not solely a photographer in the technical sensibility; he is a true artist of vivid imagination and vision."

  • "Damn, every time I decide really never to get back into weddings (from a 30 year hiatus) someone like you comes along and makes it look really, really interesting ... which is a problem because I don't care about the money or the prestige (I've already got those) but finding things that are really interesting for me is a driving force!"

  • "Finding a photographer is like finding a doctor, I needed to be able to trust one and make sure the results were superb. Working with you, Ed, exceeded all of my expectations - it was fun, professional, and very individual. It takes lots of skills and personality to create the photos you take. I don't need to be looking anymore. You are my photograther for life."

  • "Ed's photography is a beautiful blend of the historical and contemporary aesthetics of the art. He uses thoughtful, timeless, and eye-catching composition; he digs deeply into the soul of his subject; he understands the tools of his art; his images tell a story rich in worldliness as well as intimacy; and he enhances the qualities of the image with all of the creative digital tools available to the modern photographer."

  • "If you are looking for an amazing wedding photographer here is one!!! When a friend showed me his site right away i knew that i had to have Ed. I told my husband (back then fiance) that we needed to hire Ed no matter what and he agreed we LOVED his style of photos and his amazing personality. We both feel that we not only had an amazing artist taking pictures of us on our amazing day but we had a friend. We got married in Mexico so we flew Ed in and he spend 4 days with us each day we talked about how he wanted to capture more and more and to us it was very important HE wanted this (when the tables should be turned since we are his clients) but he pushed us and i cannot regret it for one second. He is kind and genuine and very professional and know what a good picture is. So dont doubt yourself go with Zorz Studios!"
