Hi, I'm Connor Zins.
I am a Montana born portrait, lifestyle and wedding photographer based in the West Valley of Phoenix, AZ. I'm passionate about creative imagery that is driven by the spontaneity and unique personalities of my clients and specialize in working with those who share my love for natural light, meaningful moments and unique composition. Primarily, I work between the greater Phoenix, AZ area and my hometown of Missoula, MT.
Almost 12 years ago I bought my first camera and almost immediately was hooked on capturing my life, adventures, travels and those who shared those experiences with me. From the beginning of my journey through photography I have spent countless hours learning, taking classes, shooting, editing, shooting some more and perfecting a craft that is unique to me. While that process was long and at times frustrating, I would not trade it for anything and firmly believe it has made me the photographer I am today. My journey has also included a number of fellow photographers who have helped mentor, teach and shape how my skillset has evolved. I can't thank those people enough and now enjoy doing the same for those trying to enter into the world of photography.
Like most people who grow up in Montana, I love to spend time outside and especially in the mountains. Glacier National Park holds a special place in my heart and it will forever be a place that I cherish and cannot get enough photos of. I spent my time growing up Skiing all winter and golfing during summer when I wasn't spending time with my family on Whitefish Lake. Today, I call Phoenix, AZ home. I golf more and ski less, but still find time to adventure and get back to Montana as much as I can. Five years ago I married the love of my life, Kari, on a beach in Hawaii with our families by our sides. Our lives together have been one adventure after another, and we'd have it no other way. Kari is not only my wife, but she does make the occasional appearance as a second shooter during weddings and other events. She is kind, supportive and there is no one I trust more in the world.
If you are getting married, need some pictures for the walls of your new home, or just want to see your life captured in the most authentic way possible, I would love to speak with you about how I can help.
