It was a pleasure working with Ed for my wedding. He was caring and considerate, creative and attentive. He was very polite and took the time to talk and email a lot ahead of time so he could deliver just what we wanted. He was calm and patient with all my guests, and with me, as I was struck with wedding-day nerves!

We did two engagement sessions, one underwater where Ed literally taught me and my husband to swim! He really provided excellent service and offered flexible schedules. We were amazed by our engagement photos and couldn't be happier with the quality of the pictures. During our wedding day, Ed was with us for the whole day, taking pictures before the ceremony, during, and after, until the end of the reception and late after. Ed really has a great eye for a beautiful shot, and we will treasure the photos. We have some creative photographs that are beautiful simply as pieces of art, above and beyond a "wedding photo."

I loved that the photos do not look staged, fake, or cliche - he created lovely images that capture the beauty of our location and the excitement and romance of the wedding day.
Ed was totally dedicated to getting great shots. After the engagement shoots and wedding day, he did a beautiful job editing the photos.

Ed patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. Everyone who has seen our pictures loves the photos. His pictures are phenomenal, especially his ability to get the colors and lighting to perfection. He also provides the photos very quickly. We have gotten compliments on our engagement photos like you wouldn't believe; many of my relatives have told us that they've never seen better enagaement photos taken. I feel so lucky that me and my husband were able to find Ed from Zorz Studios. He has created memories that will last us a lifetime! His photography is highly recommended and I would certainly hire him again.

Ed is an amazing photographer and a wonderful human being. Last year, I asked him to do some photos that I could use in establishing my professional profile online. I expected that he would take 10-12 shots and call it "done". Instead, he spent a couple of hours taking dozens of photos with multiple poses. In the end, he delivered a great variety of shots - all excellent - for me to choose from. His work is truly exceptional, and his professionalism is unmatched. More...

As the Owner and Creative Designer for Aleana's Bridal, a Bridal Store located in Ridgewood, NJ, photography of my collections is an integral part of my work, as it reflects my creations to the outside world. I always looked for somebody who could understand my intricate and passionate creations and transform them into real images, without distorting the deeper meaning behind them. And then, I met Ed of Zorz Studios.

As a professional photographer, Ed understands the nuances of each individual project, before embarking on it. His quality of associating himself with the psychology of his clients cannot be underestimated. As a consequence, the results that he produces through his photographs are, to say the least, imaginative, artistic, and speak a language of their own. A language that transcends all barriers and conveys to the viewer, the sheer beauty of the moment.

He has an amazing quality of putting his subjects at ease, which is so very essential for anyone being photographed. A model, a couple, a child, a family.....whoever he is photographing, needs to be comfortable, to come out with their best expressions, body movement, smiles, and postures. I have always observed this quality of Ed to bring out the best in people!!

Each of his photographs are a piece of art. I would recommend his services to anyone who is looking out for an amazing photographer who can Seize THE Moment and 'Capture THE Emotions'!!

Ed provided photography services for our engagement photos as well as our wedding. His work is amazingly creative and he truly seeks out unique and original images. Our photos and wedding album are a work of art. And it's not that he just takes great photos -- he was fantastic in the manner in which he learned about each of our personalities and incorporated this into the photo sessions. This makes the photos reflect who we are as people. And it wasn't just my wife and I who noticed this -- friends and family immediately recognized it as well. In addition, he's able to work well with people who aren't necessarily professional models. That said, he worked to capture our best angles and got us to pose in ways that at least made us LOOK like professional models! Finally, he's very professional, responsive and prompt, which helps with all the chaos that comes with planning a wedding. We can't recommend Ed enough! More...

We did an engagement shoot with Ed and he was also our wedding photographer. For our engagement photos, we wanted to highlight our mutual love of dance. I don't consider myself photogenic, but Ed was able to capture our best angles and delivered beautiful and unique photos.Our friends and family told us they couldn't wait to see our wedding photos. Ed did not disappoint. He's very professional, responsive and prompt, which was very helpful as we got closer to the wedding. On the big day, Ed captured emotional moments with our friends and family that told the story of our wedding perfectly. He turned our photos around quickly--within a month or so--and we know other photographers can take longer than that. We hope to work with him again some day and can't recommend him enough. More...

Last summer, my (now) husband and I had a costume party wedding and we feel exceedingly lucky to have worked with Zors Studios. Both of us are creative, and we wanted photography that would transcend the standard wedding shots and capture our love in all its messy uniqueness. The result was infinitely more than we’d hoped for – the photography captured us and our guests in a way that was both visually stunning and emotionally authentic. Moreover, the photos are true works of art, and we will cherish them forever. (Several of the shots processed at the Master level resemble exquisite oil paintings!) Ed is a genuine master as I feel truly lucky to have worked with him and received the benefit of his creative vision. I cannot recommend him more strongly. More...

Q&As

In 1987 a 12-year-old boy, fond of drawing, played a grown-up and made up a whole lot of publishing company to give official-sounding home to his fantasy warriors, action heros, monsters, comics, and doodles. My childhood happenings helped me make up the secret name for it, Zorz. No longer did my artwork have to remain unsigned; self-made comic books proudly started with "Zorz Pictures presents"—just like real movies and comic books! To a boy, it was a big deal. Drawings became more sophisticated and realistic with years and took various iterations but Zorz Pictures remained a mere fruit of imagination.

At age 21 I moved to the US and settling into a new adult life forced all things art be placed aside for a decade. It wasn't until 2005 when in the midst of the digital revolution I decided to give my creativity a new life by switching from paper and canvas to camera viewfinder and Photoshop. I bought my first entry-level DSLR, Canon Rebel XT and joined one of the pre-Facebook era photo sharing communities, Fotki. This is where I honed my technical skills within a closed small group, accumulated first followers, and found my first clients, both private and commercial. Zorz Studios re-incarnated, with the word's plural usage giving a nod to future hopes for expanding photography to digital art and old-school painting. Portraits and beauty remained my forte reflecting in fine art and fashion photography. Later, I was invited into the wedding industry which I stormed with my fashion-oriented and action-packed vision. As I continued working with the commercial clients, my private clientele grew not only through the word of mouth but also expansions within their families.

Multiple Fearless Photographer™ award winner, named among top 10 New York wedding photographers and top 50 US wedding photographers, a distinguished member of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style‘s Platinum List, NYC-based Zorz Studios offers a different approach to creative wedding photography. First, our lead photographer Ed is a published commercial and fashion photographer experienced with both editorial and journalistic approaches that result in an exclusive fashionable touch and passionate yet unobtrusive story-telling. This specific knowledge, unattainable for most wedding studios unfamiliar with the fashion industry, sets the ground for the diverse wedding photography styles. Second, his artistic background and switching from paintbrush to camera provide for the abiding skills of composing, lighting, and mood setting. In fact, those brushstrokes live on in post-production during the veiled digital art manipulation and light painting resulting in the unique wedding photos. Ed served as a digital retouching instructor for PPA, America's largest professional photographers association. Lastly and most importantly, Zorz Studios strives to be the leader, not the follower. To help create best wedding photos, we religiously seek out and forge ideas, afraid of imitating ourselves and let alone others.

If you are tired of seeing the same pregnancy photos over and over, no matter how beautiful they are, and are aching to add the wow factor to that beauty to stand out from the crowd, you came to the right maternity photographer. Zorz Studios offers a different approach to pregnancy portraits. From the snow mountains of Alaska to the gentle sunrays of Santorini, from your New York or New Jersey backyard pool to the underwater cages of Mexico, from hilarious to epic inspired by Game of Thrones, from high fashion and classy to dramatic body painting, the potential is only limited by your willingness to step away from the traditional approach.

With his pregnancy photos spotted and featured by Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, and other major outlets, our lead photographer Ed is a published commercial and fashion photographer with a set of skills not easily attainable by an average maternity photographer unfamiliar with the fashion industry.

Coming from the fine art and fashion backgrounds, Zorz Studios is known for its elaborate, fashion-driven, dramatic, and sometimes dark approach to photography. Let it not fool you — family photography is a needed window that gives us light and fresh air. When we work with families, it’s all fun, energy, giggles, and warmth! If needed, however, we can still make part of your family shoot worthy of a glossy magazine!

The photographer always wears a mask, shoots outdoors if weather and theme are permitting, and uses a zoom lens whenever possible to help keep further distance from the subject. All consultations and pre- and post-shoot meetings are performed remotely.

Why consider photo restoration? Have you ever adored a beautifully preserved piece of art at a museum? Been stunned by a level of preserved details of artifacts? Would you be awestruck knowing that what you are looking at is close to what others were witnessing or touching decades or centuries ago? As you know, these treasure were likely restored by trained professionals. They would go millimeter by millimeter, cleaning, patching, replacing, and piecing together a legacy.

Give your family treasures a second life! Through skilled digital image remastering, photo restoration by Zorz Studios will turn your old, faded, cracked, and damaged photos into revived images that can be proudly framed and displayed on your desks and walls, keeping the originals safe and intact for even more generations to come.

Get rid of the worries of keeping your fragile heirlooms in the dark drawers behind the seven seals. Let us replicate them in a restored and enhanced state. They could then be freely taken out, passed around, enlarged, framed, and hung. If you’d like to have it on your wall, we’ll print it for you on fine art paper, cotton canvas, wood, or even a modern metal finish!
