PASSPORT READY.

LIVING PROOF THAT DREAM JOBS DO EXIST.

TRAVELING HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY MAIN SOURCE OF INSPIRATION. THANKS TO MY GRANDPARENTS, I WAS IN A CAMPER BOUNCING AROUND THE NATION MOST OF MY WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS GROWING UP. EVEN WHEN MOTHER NATURE DOESN'T COOPERATE OR THINGS DONT GO EXACTLY AS PLANNED, BEING OUTSIDE AND EXPLORING ACTS AS A MENTAL RESET BUTTON FOR ME.


TELLING MY CLIENT'S STORY IS MY PRIMARY GOAL. I THINK IT COMES FROM MY BACKGROUND IN PHOTOGRAPHY. 10TH GRADE ZAK, PICTURE THAT! ACTUALLY.. PLEASE DON'T. THE POINT IS, I STARTED REALLY DIVING INTO PHOTOGRAPHY AND DESIGN MY SOPHOMORE YEAR WHEN I WAS OFFERED A SPOT ON THE HIGH SCHOOL NEWSPAPER. OVER THE YEARS BEING CREATIVE GREW FROM AN ASPIRATION, TO A HOBBY, A CAREER, AND NOW A LIFESTYLE. I ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE, A SKETCH PAD OR A CAMERA IN MY HANDS.


I AM MORE OF A CAMPER THAN A GLAMPER, BUT I COME PREPARED.
DONUTS ARE MY WEAKNESS.
I'LL DRIVE THE EXTRA HOUR FOR THE CAMPSITE WITH A VIEW.
DID SOMEONE SAY TACOS?
LIVE MUSIC. ALWAYS.
.. AND GOOD COMPANY IS ALWAYS INVITED.


LASTLY, AND MAYBE MOST IMPORTANTLY, AS A PHOTOGRAPHER I'M INCLUSIVE AND RESPECTFUL OF ALL OTHERS AND HOPE TO WORK WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE LIKE-MINDED.
 

YOU ASKED FOR THE RECEIPTS

ZAK WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING IN CAPTURING ALL THE RIGHT PHOTOS. HE IS FOCUSED BUT ALSO KEEPS HIS CLIENTS ENTERTAINED DURING THE SHOOT. HE IS ALWAYS QUICK TO RESPOND TO ANY CONCERNS OR QUESTIONS ONE MAY HAVE. HE ALSO TAKES ANY AND ALL OPPORTUNITY TO CAPTURE THE PERFECT PHOTO.

I WAS AMAZED BY HOW MANY PHOTOS THAT I TOTALLY FELL IN LOVE WITH.

 

OUR WEDDING WAS PERFECTLY CAPTURED, AND WE WOULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR ANYONE DIFFERENT TO DO THE JOB.

ZAK IS THE BEST!

ANOTHER  PHOTOGRAPHER LEFT US HANGING WITH JUST A FEW WEEKS BEFORE OUR LABOR DAY WEEKEND WEDDING. I'M SO GLAD WE WERE REFERRED TO ZAK. HE RESPONDED IMMEDIATELY AND REASSURED US THAT WE WERE IN GOOD HANDS. BETTER STILL, HE DELIVERED. HE WAS EVERYTHING THAT DAY THAT HE NEEDED TO BE, BUT WITHOUT EVER BEING IN THE WAY.

BECAUSE HE TAKES POLOROIDS OF KEY SCENES THROUGHOUT THE DAY WE ENDED OUR SPECIAL DAY WITH A TIMELINE OF PHOTOGRAPHS. STILL, WE WERE BLOWN AWAY TO SEE OUR FULL ALBUM.

ZAK CAPTURED NOT ONLY THE IMAGES BUT ESPECIALLY THE SPIRIT AND FEEL OF OUR WEDDING DAY, AND WE, OUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES WILL CONTINUE TO BE MOVED BY HIS PHOTOS MANY YEARS HENCE. THANKS YOU FROM OUR HEARTS, ZAK!

BEST WEDDING DECISION!

ZAK (AND HIS SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER KATIE) WERE INCREDIBLE! THEY MADE US FEEL SO COMFORTABLE AND WE FELT AN INSTANT RAPPORT WITH BOTH OF THEM, WHICH MADE OUR ENGAGEMENT AND WEDDING PHOTOS SO MUCH MORE AUTHENTIC AND NATURAL. WE ENJOYED EVERY SECOND OF SHOOTING WITH THEM.

ZAK IS CREATIVE, ATTENTIVE TO DETAIL, AND A TRUE ARTIST. OUR PICTURES TURNED OUT BETTER THAN WE EVER COULD HAVE IMAGINES AND WE ARE SO GRATEFUL! WE WOULD LOVE TO WORK WITH HIM AGAIN AND CAN'T RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY ENOUGH.
