We Are Different.


Meet Colorado's Best Photographers!

When you work with our small team of talented professionals, you receive attentive, personal care you won’t find elsewhere.

Every day, each of us here at From the Hip focuses on what we do best and what we’re most passionate about!

For you, this means always having someone to reach out to, having your needs anticipated, and partnering with someone who’s invested in doing amazing work for you.


 

We Are Family.


FROM THE HIP PHOTO WAS FOUNDED IN 2009 BY NINA DE ZAYAS AND HER HUSBAND. IT REMAINS A WOMAN-LED, IMMIGRANT-OWNED, SMALL, FAMILY BUSINESS.

Meet Colorado’s Best Photographers! After meeting in NYC, Nina & Danny earned their fine art degrees and moved to Denver. In 2009, they combined their passion for photography, and From the Hip Photo was born. Its name is a nod to the style of our images: candid, spontaneous, fresh, playful, and vibrant.

 

Since then, the From the Hip Photo family has grown into the most accomplished crew of visual professionals in Colorado. Julia and Danielle are our dynamic duo of gifted Lead Photographers, bringing energy and artistry to every session we photograph. Lauren, who rose through our internship program to become our Studio Manager, brings a creative mind to our daily operations.

 

You won’t find a more talented, more fun-loving, more “together” team anywhere!


 

We Are Transparent.


We make things easy with clear communication and upfront pricing that includes everything you need.

➡  Support from our team: before, during & after your session
➡  Clear pricing, as found here on our site

We Give Back.


Since 2015, your support has allowed us to return 20% of our sales back into pro-bono photo & video work in the community.

That’s no typo: social responsibility is at the core of what we do and 20% of our annual sales go back to supporting groups doing important work within Colorado.

 

Our pro-bono work includes multi-year partnerships with non-profits including Brent’s Place and The Wayfaring Band. We’ve joined up with survivors of the Aurora movie theater tragedy, assisted at countless special events and fundraisers, and supported a fertile creative landscape as partners to Denver Film, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Denver Zine Library, The Denver Center for Performing Arts, and The Denver Art Museum.

 

Other groups with whom we have partnered include Anchor Center for Blind Children, Youth on Record, the ACLU, Operation Hope, both Denver and Aurora Public Schools, The Dumb Friends League, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and festivals including The High Plains Comedy Festival and Denver Film Festival.


READY TO CHAT ABOUT SOME AMAZING PHOTOS?

HECK YEAH, LET'S DO IT!
 

We Are Here.


We'd love for you to visit our photo studio in Denver's Central Park/Northfield neighborhood!

Although many of our sessions are captured out and about on-location, you’ll find our studio headquarters in the Central Park/Northfield neighborhood, where we’ve been based since January of 2009. It’s also where all of our post-production magic happens.

Being here makes it easy to come by and chat in person and gives us a great hub for headshots and portraits, product photography, and other sessions that benefit from a more controlled studio environment.

Follow us on Instagram for a peek into our daily life here at the studio or reach out to set up a visit! We’d love to see you.
