Couples capturing couples
We are Zack & Ava!
As a couple ourselves, we understand the magic of capturing love in its purest form. Our lens becomes an extension of our shared passion, freezing the stolen glances, shared laughter, and tender embraces that define your unique connection. Entrust us with your moments, and let our shared love story fuel our commitment to documenting this chapter of yours. Together, we embark on a journey to preserve the timeless romance that makes your story extraordinary.
husband + wife duo!
In March of 2020, Ava hired Zachary for a quick photoshoot. After spending way more hours than needed for a photoshoot we knew there was a connection. Two days later we embarked upon a bowling and driving around with no destination date. We have both spent time in the entertainment industry as actors and models, but Zack had found a passion in capturing the world around him. As our relationship grew, so did Woodside Productions, and with her creative touch, Ava coined our tagline 'Couples Capturing Couples.'
In November of 2022, we married after a three-month engagement. In the midst of capturing countless love stories, and developing our very own, we added a new member to our family. Introducing Winnie, named after the lovable Winnie The Pooh. Our Mini Australian Shepard and American Eskimo Mix has cemented our love and brings us endless happiness.
Looking ahead, we envision a future where we find land down South, building not just a home but a haven for Winnie to embrace her farm dog dreams. Our story is more than just photography; it's a journey of love, learning, and crafting dreams into reality. Join us as we capture the essence of your love, as we continue to build ours.

Yes - we are a couple... but backup is needed! Meet our family <3
Photography & Owner
Hello! I am your point person from start to finish. As the owner of the company, it is my honor to service you on your big day! A little about me, I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I attended trade school to study electronics and even worked as a manufacturing/electrical test engineer for several years. During my teen years, I developed a professional modeling and acting career, even placing in IMTA NY 2018 as "Actor of the Year." I have been featured in a variety of acting and modeling roles in my career, including Hasbro toy boxes, federal PSAs, and commercial advertisements. This experience led to my passion for capturing the beauty of this world, and Woodside Productions was born!
Director of Operations
Winnie is our acting supervisor during the editing and administrative portions of the company. Her commitment to a healthy work-life balance is truly admirable. Winnie's favorite break-time activity is a game of fetch, and she's an expert at convincing us that the best brainstorming sessions happen while tossing a squeaky toy around the office. Winnie's attention to detail is unparalleled. She sniffs out any pixel out of place and barks her approval or disapproval accordingly. Her philosophy is simple: if it passes the sniff test, it's ready for the world. If not, back to the digital drawing board! And let's not forget her critical role in client approval. Picture this: a one-on-one meeting where she offers her insights with a wag of the tail, a look that can make or break a project. She's not just a supervisor; she's a pawsitively essential member of the team, ensuring that every project bears the mark of her canine critique and a touch of whimsy.
Photography & Social Media
Hello Hello! I am going to be your new bff- promise! I am ready for anything and everything that comes my way. Do you need a drink? I'm on it. Forgot your wooden hanger for dress photos? I've got one! Ready to party? I'm already dancing! I promise to help capture your day authentically while making sure YOU are enjoying every little moment. Beyond the wedding world, I'm on the verge of completing my bachelors in Health Science. Come June 2024, I'll be diving into the realm of medicine as I begin my journey toward a Physician Assistant Masters. My sights are set on a future as a surgery PA! Whether I'm physically present at your wedding or working behind the scenes, rest assured that my energy is devoted entirely to you. From crafting the perfect photo album to designing a standout social media post, consider it all taken care of!
Let's start your adventure!
We had such an amazing experience with Zachary and Ava!! We feel so blessed they were able to capture our wedding. They were professional, on time and came prepared with a ton of poses and ideas. They both have amazing personalities and make you feel extremely comfortable! We both had only had our pictures taken once so we weren't naturals at it.. but they made us feel like we were. Not only were they there for us to take photographs but they came around every so often to ask us if we needed anything which was SO kind 💕 They felt like long time friends. They pay attention to every detail which I think is so important and I absolutely loved. They captured everything we wanted and everything we didn't even think of so we've got a TON of wonderful memories. As a bride planning everything you can only hope the process for everything with vendors will go smoothly and it absolutely did with them!! They always respond to questions and made the process so easy!
