Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hi, I'm Zach! I live on Chicago's west side in Humboldt Park. I still can't believe I get to be a photographer in my favorite city. My dream job in my dream city? Come on! I've picked up a camera just about every day since I first fell in love with photography back in 2013. Though every shoot holds something unique, it takes a lot to catch me off guard after nearly a decade in business. My interests are all over the place, so I can't wait to see what we have in common! Will we connect over lit, music, or film? Maybe motorcycles or hiking. Might be mixology or cooking. Or we can compare tattoos! I'm sure we'll find something. I pride myself on my ability to quickly connect with my clients, making them feel comfortable, cared for, and confident that they look great. I’m good at going with the flow: not every event I’m at goes exactly according to plan and I know how to be flexible and roll with the punches. Being a helpful and calming presence in the midst of your wedding or event is second nature to me. Basically, I try to treat people how I want to be treated: with fairness and understanding! I love making new friends, so drop me a line and let’s get to it! Can’t wait to take your new favorite picture of you.

Engagement Photography

We found Zach on Thumbtack to shoot our engagement photos, and it was a great experience working with him! He is super personable, friendly and easy going. He is professional in his business and delivered high quality photos to us quickly. We felt Zach went above and beyond to deliver us gorgeous photos. He spent about double the amount of time as planned with us, and he delivered about double the amount of photos as promised. He accommodated shooting at two locations for us, and gave great direction in posing. We definitely recommend Zach for any other couples looking to get their engagements photos shot!

Engagement Photography

I booked Zach for a surprise proposal and he was awesome. The shots came out beautifully. He also has helpful advice because he has so much experience with proposals, weddings, etc. My now fiance is very particular for photos and even she approved of his work. Zach is great to work with and I think it'd be hard to find much better out there!
