“She captured the moments of joy and emotion with such beauty! Jiza was readily available all day, and yet, was also so great at being a hidden presence... She captured perfect moments that we will never forget.”


For almost a decade, Jiza has had the blessing of documenting extraordinary milestones of couples entering marriage, families celebrating the arrival of a new little one, or brilliant individuals starting a new career or business all over the country. She created the brand of Olive and Cypress to share a message beyond the images she produces. When you choose O&C for your photography needs, you're not simply getting pretty pictures. You are receiving images on how Jiza views life, which is one of endless beauty and richness behind each person and their story.

I believe the world can reduce the transcendent reality of a wedding. While I love photographing the hustle and bustle of a wedding day, along with all the added decorative details reflecting the couple's taste and interests, I understand that this is an event that is greater than myself. It is two souls coming together in love to start their extraordinary, earthly journey as one for the rest of their lives. I'm witnessing a commitment, a covenant, through my camera lens. I find it a great privilege and gift for me to play a small part in it! As a photographer, my goal is for these images to serve as a reminder in the years to come, a visual reminder of your life's blessings and beauty. I also enjoy capturing candid moments of you with your loved ones, because when life gets hard or when we lose those dear to us, I know those images become priceless. I realize that with my camera, I am capturing for you a part of your family history that I hope you can cherish for many years to come and pass down to your family tree.

I desire to preserve this season for you. You will never regret having tangible reminders and heirloom photography of you and your beloved, just as it looks and feels right now and on your wedding day.

“Jiza is AMAZING!!! Seriously, you cannot go wrong in choosing her to be your photographer! We loved her work so much that we flew her into Texas to take both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and we both agreed afterwards that it was one of the best decisions we made related to wedding planning!”
