Meet Your Photographer

Summer Zedaker

Get in Touch

What's up guys! My name is Summer and we're about to become besties. But only if you're looking for more than just a vendor for your wedding. I promise to serve you in every way that I can up until the big day.

You may have noticed my different last names. "Simmons" is my maiden name and the one I've built my business on. "Zedaker" is my BRAND NEW last name because I just got married last year! Wahoo!!

After booking with me, you'll get a TON of tips, tricks, and guidance for your wedding day that I'm pulling from my professional experience and my personal experience from my own wedding!

I can't wait to meet you!

xoxo, Summer

I have become a puppy mama! We just got our sweet little Ridge over the summer and he is just the cutest, yes I'm biased. He is chocolate lab mixed with husky and was a rescue! We got so lucky!


a lil about me

I married my best friend, Kyle, last June and we are just LOVING married life! We did long distance for almost 4 years so we were SO ready to be in the same city, let alone the same house, ha! We got married in Aspen, Colorado in the beautiful mountains with our closest friends and family. It was absolutely perfect!


My Love

My Doggy

God is so good. None of this would be possible with the faith and hope I've found in Him. He has blessed me with these talents and I rely on Him daily to provide vision and direction in life and in running this business. I am also blessed to be able to lead my church campus's creative team in Tampa, FL at Radiant Church. I am loving the opportunity to give back using the gifts God gave me. Documenting other christians' faith and encounters with the Lord will forever make me grateful for what I do.

My Faith

So my mom was actually a photographer as I was growing up. I got to tag along (usually because I had to) to all her photoshoots and eventually got to the point where I was grabbing her camera and shooting by myself in the background and started to fall in love with it. I did it for fun for a while until I met my now husband, Kyle. He was head of the athletic photography at the University of Tennessee (where I was attending) and convinced me to take it full time and turn it into a business. I am so blessed to have a partner in life that shares the same love and passion I do for photography.

Look at these old pics I found that she took of me!
