Ines Zrinski

Northern California Photographer

Hi/Hallo/Čao! I’m Inés, an international photographer based in California who adores meeting new people and creating beautiful images with them. I love all things whimsical, aged, and romantic whether it’s in regards to photography, literature, or cheese! And while I have multiple passions, from felting quirky toys to crafting complex costumes, film photography is where my heart is most at home as there is something tangible about the experience as you slow down and hold your breath for the negative to soak in as much light as possible. My images have been featured in Harper’s Bazaar UK, Baltimore Bride, Artfully Wed, Wedding Chicks, and elsewhere.

When my camera isn’t near, you can usually find me with a novel in hand, kitty on my lap, and a slab of cheese not too far away. I live with my delightfully silly husband and our two insubordinate pets, Toulouse and Ichabod. If you have a wedding, portrait session, or project in mind, I’d love to hear from you!

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… snuggled up with my husband and two pets - our senior pup, Toulouse, and mischievous kitty, Ickie - binging the latest Netflix show…gosh, are we boring?!? 

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… traveling down the Amazon river. During the day we worked with multiple indigenous villages, providing medical services, and at night we slept on a boat with our hammocks swinging in the evening breezes. One of the biggest highlights was getting to hold a baby caiman and swimming with piranhas...and amazingly I still have all my toes.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Japan, and once there, I’d eat all the soufflé cheesecake I could get! 

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… the love and appreciation I get from my couples. I always make it a point to sneak them away from the hustle and bustle of the party for some time to enjoy each other. 

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE…an educator! As a former EFL teacher, I still tutor sometimes. There is just something wondrous about helping students learn a new way to communicate.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… of the golden hills and vineyards! Oh, and that delicious California light.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… the Croatian coast at my Grandmother's home. 

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS… Oh, how to choose??? I’ll go with How to Steal a Million, with Audrey Hepburn.

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… in Shanghai. We were served the most incredible foods, one being bird’s nest soup. 

THE PETS I OWN ARE… Toulouse, our Jack Russell mix, who pretends not to hear me, and our possessed Turkish black cat, Ichabod Crane, a.k.a., Ickie.
