Today we’d like to introduce you to Lindsey Zamora.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Lindsey. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I grew up in a creative family. Both my parents started and owned their own businesses; my dad was an architect and mom an art-director. I have seen and lived the entrepreneurial spirit my entire life.
My older sister is now a fashion photographer in Dallas and was working as a photo assistant while I was still in school. One summer the studio needed a styling assistant and, thankfully, I was given a chance. I still remember stepping into the studio for the first time in over 15 years. It was dimly lit except for the strobes that give that all-to-familiar popping sound when they go off. I had this overwhelmingly calm and familiar feeling rush over me. I knew in that moment that I wanted a career in the creative industry. I wanted to be in a creative field that was something bigger than one person; I wanted to be part of a team that created something together.
It wasn’t until after college that I began working for an agency that represented fashion stylists, hair and makeup artists, producers, set designers and the like. I didn’t dive into the wedding industry until my own wedding five years ago. To put it simply, I fell in love with the design of weddings. I saw the potential and excitement of taking someone else’s vision and bringing it to life in a tangible way. I first approached weddings as a stylist. I worked with photographers styling details and focused my design on the tabletop. As my business steadily grew, I began designing more and more components of the wedding which ultimately lead me to have more of a creative director role with my clients. Shortly after, I started incorporating the planning and production side along with event design and styling which all make up my business today.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think it is very easy to get caught up in looking at others work which can lead a road of comparison and self-doubt. It’s a fine line for me because on some level I need to know the trends and where the industry is going but I’m also very careful to look at that from a distance. Finding inspiration and turning it into my own is something I am constantly working on. I have worked hard to develop a system that looks outside the wedding industry for inspiration, which is something I am very proud of.
Lindsey Zamora Events – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
My work is inspired by nature, texture and architecture. Many times, I start with the venue and let the vision grow from there. I break down the inspiration to something more than a just a visual level. It is important that I understand how my clients want their wedding to feel; what type of event do they want? What do they want their guests to experience? Truly understanding the feel requires incorporating all of your senses; not just visual, but sound, taste, smell and touch.
Over the years, I have developed a design and planning process that is fun and welcoming. It is a process that evolves as my clients and I work closely together.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
The Wedding! It’s always such a rush for me! My clients and I have worked so hard for months. There is such satisfaction seeing the sketches, swatches, conversations, timelines and planning come to life to transform a space into an environment. It is such a humbling experience to be the visionary leader and producer on a day my clients will remember and reflect on for the rest of their life. Each client is near and dear to my heart and I am so thankful for them!
