Zareth is a true artist, and I cannot recommend ZADesignz highly enough. When I found her site and blog, I couldn’t believe how beautiful and real her photos were, and I was pretty much like well “I’m sure she picks the best photos for her blog/site, but if my pictures turn out half as good as these, then I’m a happy camper” – and when I got them, and saw that my pictures were as phenomenal in quality as the ones she showcases, I couldn’t believe I was lucky enough to find her. I found Zareth by doing a google image search with the name of my venue, and looked at the various photography blog photos that popped up. I zoned in on ZADesignz because I love Zareth’s modern look and photojournalistic (I think that’s the word) style. I didn’t want many posed photos, as I wanted to dance with my husband and guests, (and dance I did, extra props to Zareth for stealthily avoiding my flying elbows as I *impressed* my guests with my graceless yet awesome dance moves). She captured such wonderful, joyful, and poignant candid moments. I could not be happier with my wedding photographs.

Zareth’s work is absolutely amazing! We enjoyed working with her and couldn’t be happier with having her as our photographer for our wedding and engagement. She captured every moment perfectly and thought outside of the box to get truly one of a kind pictures with her signature whimsical touch. Her photos are vibrant, exciting and capture the unique beauty in each moment. We would recommend her to everyone and look forward to working with her in the future!


Lauren W.- The pictures are great! We love them! Thank you so much for everything

Vida A.- One year later and still so happy with Zareth’s Pictures!

Zareth is amazing. She photographed me and my (now husband) for our engagement photos about a year before our wedding, and those turned out beautifully, and she was our awesome wedding photographer. To this day, one year later, I can’t help but see my album and smile with happy tears. She has such a beautiful and artistic style to her work, which is what originally attracted us to her. What solidified our decision to hire her is her professionalism, and her dedication to providing a quality service at an incredibly affordable rate. We were on a tight budget and she worked with us to create a package that was perfect for what we needed. If you want timeless photographs, with a beautiful, dream-like quality that can match the amazing fantasy-come-true quality that is your wedding, then hire Zareth, and you will not be sorry!



Rebecca M.- OMG thank you so much!!! We loved them 🙂



Katie C.- They look wonderful! Thanks again!



Alison M.- Wonderful!

Zareth is very relaxed and quiet about what she sees–as a photojournalist, she really only needs to set you loose and record the memories. She is very good with poses, though, too. Zareth is also very prompt with delivery and the finished product is so fantastic that a very long wait would’ve been okay.


Monifc- Thanks so much Zareth!!

Zareth did an amazing job on our wedding. Pictures turned out absolutely fantastic! All of them! Very professional and creative photographer. We are very happy to have chosen ZADesignz as our wedding photographer and would highly recommend her!

Brittany S.- Love our photos!

Zareth photographed our wedding, and we are thrilled with the photos. My husband and I can both be awkward in front of a camera, but Zareth encouraged us to act natural and just talk to each other rather than posing. I love the results. We look relaxed and like ourselves in the photos, and all of them together document the feel of the day. She truly captured our happiness in the moment. I cannot help but think that in 20 years when we look back at these photos, they will remind us of how we felt in all of those little moments. She not only photographs you but also the décor, space, and personal touches that you put into the day.

One of our requests was to not be away from our guests for a long amount of time taking photos after the ceremony, so Zareth recommended that we do a first look before the wedding. This was a great fit for us because it allowed us to spend the time we wanted taking photos without feeling rushed and then actually be able to enjoy the cocktail hour with our guests.

Many of our guests commented on how unobtrusive Zareth was during the wedding. She stayed in the background, not blocking the views of our guests while still capturing all of the parts of our wedding in photos.

If you want a photographer to document your event and provide you with beautiful, natural, relaxed photos, then I would highly recommend Zareth. 

Melanie S.- My fiance and I couldn’t be more happy with our engagement photos – Zareth did an amazing job!
 
Zareth was prompt in responding to my initial inquiry and never failed to respond in a timely manner as we bounced ideas back and forth about possible locations for our session. She suggested a beautiful location that was exactly what my fiance and I had in mind and did a great job making us feel comfortable/capturing our personalities. 

I couldn’t believe how quickly she was able to edit and ship our photos, and like I said before – she did an amazing job! If you’re looking for someone who’s easy to work with, prompt, friendly, and professional, you can’t go wrong with ZADesignz.

Audry T.- Yes, would recommend! 

If you have already visited Zareth’s website, you will know that she takes incredible photos. They are rich and colorful, tender and creative, relaxed and at the same time very intense. If you want your wedding or engagement photos to look and feel like the ones that Zareth features on her website, then absolutely, do not hesitate – hire her! Because she will deliver for you, no doubt.
My husband and I hired Zareth as our wedding and engagement photographer for our August 2013 wedding. I found her listing on The Knot, visited her website, and decided right away that I wanted to have her take our photos. Zareth was really patient and responsive with me during the booking process, even though I had a million questions. Even after all those emails, she still agreed to meet me in person at a Starbucks on a cold blustery day to show me her work in person and chat about what I was looking for. In person, Zareth is calm and open. She is a great listener, and she LOVES to talk about wedding details! (So if you need to geek out with someone about that stuff, I know she will be more than happy to.)
We shot our engagement photos in April on a perfect spring evening around Capitol Hill, and we booked Zareth (without her husband as her assistant) for four hours at our wedding, which took place at 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church. If I had to do it over again, I would have hired her for longer, even though she is perfectly capable of capturing all aspects of a wedding in just four hours (ask her which weddings in her portfolio were only 4-hour sessions and I guarantee you would never guess). For me, though, I think having her for even just one extra hour would have just helped me relax a little more and get more picture combos of me and my husband with our families and guests. Something to think about.
Zareth is really serious about her business. I don’t know many photographers, so I don’t really have a good benchmark for comparison, but I would venture to say that she is one of the most driven and committed, hard-working photographers out there. She has incredibly fast turnover and production time, and it’s because, as she told me, she literally cannot wait to go home and look at the pictures that she’s taken. She loves it that much! So you will get almost instant gratification with your wedding or engagement photos, because Zareth will post those suckers online as quickly as she possibly can! (Beautifully edited, of course!) And you will get your full set in the mail very quickly as well.
I think that for the average person, being photographed is kind of a strange experience. You don’t know how to act, how to pose, where to go…my husband and I are definitely in that category. Zareth wants to make sure that she captures real moments between people, so she does not give you a lot of direction. Just be ready for this! Your photos will still come out amazing, though, trust me.
Even though our wedding was more than 6 months ago, I still love going back to Zareth’s blog to look at her work. She has incredible, undeniable talent, and she is a serious professional. If you are on the fence, ask yourself if you want to work with a sweet, sensitive, professional individual who takes amazing pictures – and if you do, I think the answer is right in front of you!



Audry T.

Thank you so much!!! Such beautiful photos … 🙂 I am so glad that you were our photographer… I keep getting overwhelmed! I can’t thank you enough

Cheryl H.- great photographer!

Zareth was our photographer for our wedding in November 2013. Originally, we had used another photographer for engagement pictures, and after a poor experience, we decided to continue our search for a wedding photographer. Zareth met with us at a local Starbucks, and patiently walked us through her portfolios. She also explained her approach to photography, in that she stays behind the scene, captures the little details and gives directions in order to capture the best shot. My fiance and I were not the most comfortable in front of the camera, but Zareth quickly put us at ease. Overall, we were extremely happy with the services provided by ZADesignz.  Zareth was easily accessible by email, was on-time to the wedding, and was prompt in sending the pictures–she had the CD in the mail before we were even back from our honeymoon! She was also extremely affordable compared to many photographers in the DC area. We also enjoyed that we were able to choose the photos that were artistically edited–though the “unedited” pictures were just as beautiful. We would highly recommend Zareth as a wedding photographer.


Clarissa S. – Thank you for all the photos you took of our wedding. They were fabulous!


Missemilyclaire- Phenomenal photographer & photos!

Zareth was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely punctual and accommodating to our schedule. We were so lucky that she was available to photograph our party. The photos she took were unbelievable! She really was able to capture the event in a beautiful way. I couldn’t recommend this photographer more!! The quality of the photos were amazing!

Lauren H.- Great experience

We had a great experience for our engagement session with Zareth. She was able to capture our personalities and was very easy to work with. She was even a good sport when the location we picked was quite the hike. The pictures turned out great and we received them very quickly! Great communication before and after the shoot. We would recommend her and will look to her for our photo needs again in the future.



Iris W.- Thanks Zareth!

Zareth did a wonderful job with our wedding photography. She was friendly and professional but unobtrusive during the wedding, and responded quickly to all communication beforehand. The photos turned out beautifully, and she captured many of the smaller moments and details of the wedding that were meaningful to us. Definitely recommend her! Thanks again!



Nicole C.- Wonderful photos

Zareth was lovely to work with, and I’m so happy with our wedding photos! She’s got a great eye and caught many great moments between family members, couples, etc. She’s also got a great eye for color—the photos were vibrant and bold, exactly what I was hoping for. She got them to me incredibly quickly, too—everyone was shocked that I didn’t have to wait weeks before posting my entire album. One guest also specifically complimented Zareth’s conduct during the wedding—unlike some wedding photographers, she didn’t “take over” the wedding. She floated around and got great pictures without forcing people to pose or getting in anyone’s way. She’s super talented, and I highly recommend her!

Roze M.- Great photographer

Zareth did a great job with my engagement session in November. She was quick to respond to questions I had prior to the session and had our cd of pictures in the mail the next day. I was impressed with how she retouched the photos that we selected and was happy that she was able to create an artistic touch to our pictures. I am definitely using her for my wedding this April and have confidence that she will do a great job.



Margaux M.- Wonderful Photos!

Zareth was extremely accommodating and took amazing photos for us. She was very creative and took many shots that didn’t looked posed or uncomfortable. The proofs came promptly and Zareth continued to check in on us to make sure we liked our photos. Great experience!



Arielle C.- 5 Star Service!!!

When my fiance and I began to look for photographers for our engagement and wedding, we did a lot of research and our main goals were budget friendliness and artistic ability. After doing some research online I came across Zadesignz. Zareth from day one was very responsive with all the questions I had and that put me at ease at once. We decided to select Zadesignz for our engagement photoshoot and our wedding photography. We had our a engagement shoot at the Kennedy Center. We were a little nervous at first when the shoot began but Zareth put at us at ease with her professionalism and creative style. Needless to say when the pictures were released we are more than excited and pleased, they came out FANTASTIC. We couldn’t wait for our wedding day pictures to be taken. The day of my wedding I had planned on taking “getting ready” shots at the church, but we got behind on time and I ended up getting ready at the hotel. I called Zareth and explained the situation and in the next 15 minutes she was at the hotel room taking my “getting ready” pictures. Zareth and husband Danny were so professional and captured every part of our wedding day. Many guests didn’t even know they were there until they saw our wedding pictures. I was extremely pleased with the service and product that I received and I would recommend Zadesignz to ANYONE looking for photography for their special day!


Lauren C.- They look AMAZING! You did a wonderful job, thank you again so much!!



Amanda D.- Just what I needed!

Zareth is truly an amazing person and photographer. It was so nice to work with her and her husband during my big day.I am super picky and detail oriented, and there was no detail that went un-photographed in my wedding. Not only were the pictures amazing but they were at my house the week we got back from our honeymoon which was perfect because it was just in time to get albums made for Christmas. Not only did she make sure I was happy with her work and received everything on time, she also submitted my wedding to Capitol Romance which is a super awesome blog dedicated to offbeat weddings. I really felt like she went above and beyond to make sure that everything about my wedding was perfect. I definitely recommend!!



Andrea M.- Wonderful Photographer!

I loved every single picture that Zareth and her husband took the day of my wedding. Not only were they beautiful, but I recieved three disks full of all the pictures in the mail the following Tuesday! I gave a brief description of the style and finish that I wanted (vintage/aged) and she did a wonderful job editing the photos. Zareth is a wonderful photographer. As I looked through them with my husband we couldn’t help, but smile. I love how she captured every detail! She’s a very talented photographer and a pleasure to work with.

Stephanie D.- I know I’ve already said it but I love all the pictures that you have posted up …They look so great! You guys did a wonderful job.


Deirdre L.

Fantastic Experience!
We had a fantastic experience working with Zareth for our wedding. I stumbled upon her website by chance and my husband and I decided to set up a meeting with her. She was the first and last photographer we met with. We loved her, her style, and her attitude! Our wedding day was perfect, she and her husband split up, she stayed with me and her husband went the venue ahead of time and took pictures of my venue, the guys getting ready, everything! We have full coverage of the whole day and the pictures are beautiful! They are a fantastic team and she is a very talented lady! We had our pictures back quickly and she was very patient with me as I am in graduate school full time and took nearly 6 months to finally get together what I wanted for our album. It was so hard to choose and she had soooo many pictures of our day! We were so pleased, we recommended her to another couple who got married last month and they also had a fantastic experience. We hope to be able to use her in the future for pictures when we start a family.


Vanessa N.- Our (baby & me) review for ZADESIGNZ 🙂

First of all i want to say how SPECIAL baby and i felt after looking at the maternity pictures!! The pictures are PERFECT. I am so glad that Zaret took our pictures, it is a choice i will NEVER regret!! Second, she also did our baby shower invitations. It’s elegant, beautiful, clean, creative, special, i can keep going and going, the important thing again is that Zaret made baby and me feel like Hollywood stars ♥♥ I would definitely recommend ZADESIGNZ for mothers to be! 🙂


Broomy11- Great Experience

Zareth and her husband did such a great job at our engagement session! They made my fiance and I very relaxed and comfortable, making it easy to capture great photographs! I would definitely recommend ZADesignz Photography to friends and family, not only for the quality of work that was done but for a great price and fast turn around! Great Work!


Shani B.- Beautiful Work

Zareth did an awesome job with my wedding photography. She was professional and captured my dream perfectly. She did a great job capturing details, candid shots, and the ceremony. I would highly recommend her to any bride that wants gorgeous pictures with an artistic touch.



Kelly R.- You are fast!  I love it…better than I could have ever hoped for!  Seriously.  Pat is going to fall off his chair


Tom D.- Excellent Engagement Photos

Zareth was great! My fiancee and I decided after all to get some engagement photos in Old Town Alexandria before our wedding and we could not have been happier with the results from Zareth! Great photos, very flexible and incredibly easy to work with. We would recommend her for anyone and any event!

Gretchen D.- Great

ZADesignz did our engagement photos and we couldn’t have been more happy with them. It was easy to schedule, a reasonable price and fantastic work. They met us where we wanted, were happy to cater to our quirky photo ideas and put their own artistic style into the session. All our communications with them were quick and we got the cd of photos, prints and photobooks we ordered super fast. My fiance and I highly recommend ZADesigns for your engagement/wedding photos.


 

Erin G.- Aggggghhhhhhh you’re soooooooo talented!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They came out so well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We love them!!!!!!!!!!


Sunkissed Engagement session

Lauren P.- Exaclty what we were looking for!

The entire experience was amazing– and the photos were incredible- Zareth and Danny are extremely talented and so easy to work with. Not to mention the prices, which are above and beyond reasonable. I highly recommend Zareth! Thanks so much!


Nicole B.- Engagement photos

Our engagement photopgraphs turned out amazing! Her photography style is amazing. She uploaded almost 50 of the pictures to her website in less than 24 hours after the photo shoot. The following day I received my pictures on CD in the mail. It was nice not having to wait around wondering what they turned out like. We booked Zareth for our wedding in October too, and I cannot wait to see those pictures either because I’m sure they’ll be incredible!

Kelly W.- have been going through all the photos.  So many of my friends, family, and coworkers love the photos you posted online!  Thank you so much!  They all turned out way better than I could have ever hoped for! 🙂


Juliana G.- Zareth was great for us. I have amazing pictures of my wedding. She send me all of themso fast!!!


Angela M.- Exactly what we were looking for…

I was so happy to find ZADesignz after months of looking at photographers who didn’t do exactly what we wanted and had outrageous prices. We felt like the quality of the work put out by ZADesignz for the price was a steal and we couldn’t be happier with our engagement photos! We have had so many compliments and they keep coming. We are a busy couple and were a little scattered during our shoot after arriving back in town just a few minutes before but Zareth somehow made it all look amazing. She was so laid back, comfortable and creative. We cant wait to see what she does at our…


John F. Kennedy’s Center Engagement Session
Arielle C.- Fantastic Engagement Photoshoot

When my fiance and I began to look for photographers for our engagement and wedding, we did a lot of research and our main goals were budget friendliness and artistic ability. After doing some research online I came across Zadesignz. Zareth from day one was very responsive with all the questions I had and that put me at ease at once. We decided to select Zadesign for our engagement photoshoot and our wedding photography. We had our a engagement shoot at the Kennedy Center. My fiance and I were a little nervous at first when the shoot began but Zareth put at us at ease with her professionalism and creative style. Needless to say when the pictures were released we are more than excited and pleased, they came out FANTASTIC. Every person that we showed them to were blown out of the water and were impressed. We are so excited to work with Zareth for our wedding photography!!!


Carly B.- Engagement Session

We used Zareth for our engagement shoot and really enjoyed her and her husband. We received nearly 350 pictures from an hour long session. We had originally planned on taking our photos in a garden in Georgetown; however, it was closed during the time we scheduled the shoot (poor planning on my part). Zareth was flexible and quick to think of great places in Georgetown that we could go to have our photos taken. We covered a great deal of Georgetown and had many different scenery options to choose from when our pictures came. The only area of improvement I would recommend is for the photographer to be a little more agressive in giving posing ideas or suggestions. For someone who is unfamiliar with ‘modeling’ for lack of a better word, I could have used a little guidance on coming up with some more unique poses. The quality of pictures was wonderful and I was very impressed with the value. We received our pictures and edits extremely fast and even had a sneak peak of them on ZADesignz facebook page before receiving them. This was great because I was very anxious to see them. Overall, we were extremely happy with the photos that we received and would definitely recommend Zareth to anyone looking to take engagement pictures in the DC, MD, VA area. 



Kathleen T.- Zareth was amazing!

Zareth was truly amazing and we had a wonderful experience. The photo shoot was a blast and the pictures came out great. We are eager to use them in fun ways as we plan our wedding and we are most excited for Zareth to join us again on our wedding day!! I highly recommend ZADesignz for your wedding :)…


vintage engagement session

Dominique H.- Incredible!

Zareth is definitely one of the best! My fiance is currently living in San Diego and we had just a few days to find an engagement photographer for his last-minute trip out. I scoured the web all night long and thank goodness I came across her. She responded right away and was so accessible, she immediately put my frantic mind at ease. We went back and forth several times discussing possible locations and style and she got us right away! Even suggesting cool props that turned out gorgeous. We were both so excited for the shoot and it far exceeded our expectations. Zareth made us feel comfortable and we even had moments where we forgot the camera was there and just enjoyed being in a gorgeous setting together. Little did we know that Zareth was making amazing shots the entire time! I have gotten SO many great compliments on my photos – “amazing”, “artistic”, “beautiful” and it goes on. Our family and friends are blown away and I can’t wait to use Zareth for the Big Day! Zareth is professional and a brilliant, creative photographer. Her services are a value that you don’t want to pass…



Billie Jean Q.- Wonderful!

Zareth was very laid back and easy to work with! My fiance and I had a great experience using her for our engagement photos and would use her for our wedding it were in the area. The engagement package she provided was also very comprehensive for the price


newborn photography
Joy C.

Our experience with Zareth was wonderful! She photographed our newborn at 2 weeks. She was gentle and worked so well with him. She was friendly and proficient and got the most magnificent photos of our slightly fussy and wide awake baby! Despite him moving around a lot she was able to coax him into position and got the cutest reactions from him which she captured in the split seconds he decided to close his eyes and take a break from fidgeting! We loved having her and it felt like she was a family member because of how personable she was. We will definitely be using ZaDesign again to capture the special moments as our newborn grows



Julia G.

Zareth and her husband are an extremely talented duo of photographers. They did a fantastic job for my engagement photos. I chose them for the creative and personal touch visible in their portfolio, and was not at all disappointed. They helped create beautiful, intimate shots that were beautiful even before the skilled editing that was done. I highly recommend them for any photography sessions. I was so happy with ZADesignz that I hired them for my rehearsal dinner and wedding as well! They are so friendly, easy to work with, and extremely timely in communications and in returning the proofs/edited shots. I can not recommend Zareth enough!


 

newborn photography

Vanessa N.- Newborn session- Mikaya – 2 weeks old.

I am very happy with how the newborn pictures came out. Everyone in the family loves the pictures!! They either have it as the wallpaper for the phone or for the tablet :)! The pics have become a great keepsake . Zareth ( photographer) was very patient and wonderful with baby Mikayla. I recommend her to all mothers 🙂 I will definitely have ZADESIGNZ take future pictures of my baby girl and future children!!


Julie G.

Zareth and Danny are an extremely talented, creative, professional team. I first found them for my engagement photos, and was so impressed with their level of skill, I booked them for my wedding as well. I am so happy I did! They are so kind and easy to work with, and have such a great eye for finding the best shot. It was so wonderful to have the many details of our day documented with such beautiful shots – the decor, the food, the guests – all looked as wonderful and beautiful in pictures as they did that day, many with an extra level of elegance and beauty. Zareth had a carefully edited selection of photos on her blog within a few days, which allowed us to enjoy them on our honeymoon and to share with friends and family. They have a good range of package options to choose from, all of which are a great value. I am so happy to have found ZADesignz, and would highly recommend them without any reservations!


Andrea P.

Zareth is absolutely wonderful! The photos turned out fabulous and the service was superb.

Pros
-She is creative… your wedding pictures will be interesting and beautiful
-Photojournalistic (I’m not a huge fan of staged pictures)
-Passionate about what she does
-Open and excited about different themes (we had a fiesta wedding!)
-Very responsive
-Awesome price for the work… she is sure to keep getting more expensive though so book her now!
-Quick turnaround- we got to look at our wedding photos within a week. They were posted on her blog (edited) only 3 or 4 days after the wedding.

Cons
-I wouldn’t recommend her for someone who likes staged and very traditional photos. But, come on, who likes those?!


Dominique H

Zareth is absolutely wonderful! She showed up the day of the wedding, with monsoon rain and all, and just rolled with it. She took the most beautiful pictures and I get so many compliments on them. She got all the shots that I wanted and I couldn’t be happier with her services. Professional, creative, and just an awesome team. ZADesignz is the best! She will be my family photographer forever!


Jonnetta J.

Wow, I don’t even know where to begin! Zareth was an absolute dream to work with. She was flexible and did an amazing job. When I received my save the dates, I nearly cried! That is how beautiful they were! I am excited to use Zareth for my invitations and other wedding stationary!! She is highly recommended!!!



Crystal W.

Zareth, was extremely professional and wonderful with my maternity shoot. Capturing every belly pose possible and making me feel very comfortable and confident. She deffinetly is very experienced, as she was very particular with sunlighting and catching the overall wonders of motherhood. I would HIGHLY recommend her to friends and family in any event. She knows her stuff and the portraits of course speak for themselves. So thank you sooo much Zareth, you work really is amazing!


formal engagement session

Emma A.

Zareth photographed our one-hour engagement session in downtown DC at the Lincoln Memorial. It was such a busy day but she managed to get great shots. Zareth is great at giving direction and has an exceptionally creative eye. She is very professional and the turn around time for the photos was fast! We were very pleased with her work and would definitely recommend Zareth for engagement and wedding photos. We loved the pictures and cannot say enough good things about Zareth and her photog skills!


Joyce N.

It was a pleasure working with Zareth, She’s knowledgeable and professional.She is really creative but open to the customer ideas. Her main goal is customer satisfaction. Loved my invitations! Will definitely work with her again.


Stephanie S.

My fiance and I had a wonderful experience shooting with Zareth of ZADesignz. She was extremely professional from the time I contacted her, all the way up til I received the photos. Her turn-around time is also super quick for those who like nearly instant gratification (such as myself)! The images turned out beautifully, and I’m so proud to share them with our friends and family.



Wanda Z.

We hired Zareth to take some family portraits of our family. We wanted natural looking, photojournalistic shots. Before our photo session she asked exactly for what we wanted. I had seen some samples of her work, so I was sure of some of the shots I wanted but I knew she would also do her part to capture the best moments. We were very happy with our pictures. We loved each and every one of them.

I highly recommend Zareth for any event: wedding, engagement or portraits. She does an amazing job and a great professional.


Sarah M.

Great experience!
We used ZA Designz for our engagement session, and Zareth was very professional and the photos came out amazing. She was very comforting and patient, which helped us because we were slightly nervous about our first photo shoot. The retouched photos made a big difference and she was able to make the photos look like very professional photos. She was even able to remove my purse from the photo through retouching. We highly recommend her services, and she was affordable as well.



Robyn F.

Zareth’s photography is simply stunning! When I saw my photos I just couldn’t believe how lovely they were. All my friends & family love the photos. She captured every single detail! Zareth definitely provides quality photos for brides on a budget. The editing is perfect and she provided the photos within a few days. I will truly cherish my photos for years! I will recommend her to all my bride to be friends.



Kathryne U.

Both my fiance and I worked with Zareth for our engagement shoot, this past weekend! I happen to be the kind of person that always has a vision, and knows exactly what she wants to the tee. I was so pleased to see that Zareth was able to capture my vision for our shoot PERFECTLY! We communicated via email regularly to exchange ideas so that way the day of, everything would run smoothly. And that is exactly what happened. I was a little worried that we would have very few good pictures since our shoot was at night in D.C. and the lighting was not all that great. But it was so nice to see how we ended up having an array of ‘favorites’. Her editing skills are on point! Our pictures look natural, vibrant and flawless…and the quality is superb! And it was great to be able to see our pictures the very next day! Both my fiance and I are excited and happy to work with Zareth for our wedding! Can’t wait to see all that she will capture on our special day!


Catherine S.

I used Zareth’s services for an engagement session. She was fantastic! Very professional and helped my fiance and I get comfortable in front of the camera.

We did this session for two reasons. The first was because we wanted to design our own save the date – which she did a PHENOMENAL job of. She is a graphic designer, and will go above and beyond to get you what you want.

The second reason we wanted the session to do the session before the wedding was to get the kind of pictures we would want at our wedding – which she will be shooting as well. We got some really great pictures of us at the engagement session, and can’t wait to see what she captures at the wedding!

I recommend her without hesitation to any bride, especially the budget conscious bride – a great value for the work provided 🙂


Porsha S.

I had some leisure photos done by Zareth and they came out FANTASTIC! I have never received so many compliments. Zareth is great at taking the clients ideas and transforming them into great photography. She is very professional and I would recommend her to others. You will not be dissapointed!


Anna O.

Zareth was a fabulous photographer and I couldn’t wait to write this review. She was not just on time, but early and prepared. She was generous with her time and had already taken initiative to get the shots I wanted. A non intrusive, helpful, calm,and well mannered photographer, Zareth was a pleasure to work with and I recommend her highly for your wedding!


Sofia A.

Zareth is a great photographer. She gives you exactly what you ask for. She did not take photos for a wedding or an engagement session, but she did do a portrait session for me. She puts life into the pictures and makes them look incredible. She is affordable and flexible, which works because people have different needs for their pictures. Most photographers overlook some details, but Zareth doesn’t; Zareth is careful about everything in the picture. It is her graphic designer skills that allow her to deliver to her customers such high quality work. I’m very thankful for the work she did in my pictures and I am sure that she will deliver the same quality in the pictures she takes for others. I love my pictures. That’s why I highly recommend Zareth Acosta as a photographer.
