about me

hi, i’m zelle.

a little bit about me

If there are some things I enjoy, things I truly enjoy, they always include those I love….and tacos. I can’t even begin to describe my love for tacos and coca-cola, and a morning cup of coffee with my husband.

I enjoy treasuring moments, all moments. From the little things in life, like a new succulent I buy for my kitchen window, to the big joys of a friend’s engagement and everything in between. Traveling is definitely always a yes, too.

I live in Tennessee, long for the beach, and could travel the world if I could. I would describe myself as a middle-ground of adventurous and cautious. I could easily do both, at the same time. I am very fond of fonts, graphic design, and creating things myself both tangible and digital.

I struggle not to take photos. Truly. There have been moments where I force myself to leave the camera at home so that I can enjoy and live in the moment, as opposed to capturing the moment and viewing it through the camera’s viewfinder. Thus, when I myself got engaged, my husband did it in the middle of the night while we were walking along the beach (hoping for some seashells no one else picked up, yet). With just the moonlight lighting our way, he proposed with zero bystanders, zero cameras, and zero distractions. For me, this was perfect. It gave me a chance to truly live in the moment. But, for others, who perhaps don’t spend their entire life behind a camera, getting photos of your engagement could be the coolest thing ever for years to come! Imagine me hiding in a bush, you never knowing I was there, until that night when your finance shows you the photos. Surprise!
