About ZADesignz

With a click of a button, Zareth aims to capture emotions, moments and details. Her combination of portraiture and journalism enables her to provide you raw moments that would have otherwise been unnoticed, and beautiful family portraits you'll treasure forever. Zareth is unobtrusive, yet manages to capture your wedding's essence, and tell a story from start to end. She loves all kinds of weddings, and is skilled to work in all circumstances. You will get photographs of the details that made your day unique and special. It is her fresh approach, great attention to detail and creativity that makes her a great photographer. Zareth lives in Maryland, but will travel for your wedding.
From Zareth: Ever since I was young, I've been behind the lens. When it came to family vacations, parties, graduations, I was the one with the camera. I've always loved the fact that you freeze a moment in time, and relive it through photographs. I think that there are many important lifetime events that you want to be sure to have documented, for me, it was my wedding day. That's where my passion for photography grew even more. I realized how important it is to have the right person document your wedding, as few things will last beyond the day itself. I love weddings, and couples that are fortunate to find each other, and join their lives. I love being part of that. My husband is my second photographer, and we love when we get to work together; we complement each other's photographs. Our styles mesh so well together, and I think it's an aspect that you want for your wedding day. I'm a self taught photographer, and I like to use that as an advantage. I have a fresh approach, I like to have fun with my clients, and choose locations, and poses that feel natural to them. I think the best shots are the spontaneous moments, where your mom is whispering in your ear, or when you hold your grandmother's hand when she sees you in your dress, or your spouse squeezes you close. I majored in graphic design, so besides photography, I can also help you design your wedding stationary, paper favors, monograms, etc. Let me take care of your wedding photography, from taking the photos and retouching them, to delivering a beautiful final product I'm sure you'll love.

    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!

    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!

    Zareth is a wonderful photographer. I got married on a Saturday and Tuesday evening I had three disks full of pictures in my mailbox. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 :)

    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!

    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!

    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.
