    Fantastic!
    Zach was fantastic! Flexible with his timing (when we had to move the date at the last minute), very professional, great communication, and he produced quality photos. Would definitely hire him again!

    Amazing photographer
    Five stars! Zach shot real estate pictures for me. His eye for detail is incredible and his shots exceed all expectations. He gets the perfect angle and lighting. He delivers the photos quickly and the finished product is amazing!

    Will hire again - great work
    Zach covered an event for us last week and I could not be happier! He was prompt, profession and his work product was excellent. We had a very fluid schedule and he was easily able to go with the flow and anticipate what was needed. The photos were great and we had them by the following week. It was a pleasure working with Zach and I will certainly call him again.

    Hired Zach to photograph two events. Casual and formal pictures. Did all of this through Thumbtack. He responded quickly and the contract was signed within a couple days. He arrived on time and was very flexible to our needs. He needed little oversight and went about his business. Delivered photos within 48 hours. I would hire him again!

    We hired Zach of Z.Miller for a Thumbtack event in the DC area. We liked his custom response to our project. He took the time to find relevant photos from his portfolio to show us his abilities. His communication was thorough, and he asked all the right questions. At the event, he wasn't intrusive and was a true professional. Plus, his photos were wonderful! I'd highly recommend!

    Zach was the event photographer for our two-day conference. This event is incredibly important to our organization, and ensuring we have quality photographs of it is essential. Zach was great to work with - responsive, easy going, flexible, and most importantly got great shots! I'd definitely work with Zach again in the future and would be happy to recommend him to others.

    We had a really great experience with Zack at a recent Fast Company event in Tysons Corner. He's professional and quick, and got all the shots we needed. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would use him again for future events in the area. Jen from Fast Company Magazine

    General comments: We hired Zach for an event with 200+ attendees in Washington, DC Pros: -Zach was responsive prior to the event, and gave some feedback for a well-rounded, well-planned shot list. -He had lots of good reviews, and maybe he will provide great service to other clients. We were not the recipient of good service. -The photos themselves were fine. Cons: -Zach miscalculated traffic and was an hour late. I had asked him to be 30 minutes early, but he missed a large portion of the event, including some speakers. -When I asked for a discount, I was met with attitude - talking back and being argumentative is not great customer service. -We agreed upon a discounted price, and my colleague paid. She informed me later that she was charged a higher price than what Zach and I agreed upon. -We will not be using Zach again, and have advised colleagues not to use him. My recommendation is that Zach prioritize customer service for future clients.
    Zach M. Jul 13, 2015

    Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on your experience. I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the service I provided. I pride myself on providing excellent customer service and making each client feel valued and I apologize that this particular session did not live up to those expectations. If you have any further questions or concerns please email or call me. I'd be happy to work with you again in the future to illustrate my dedication to proper customer service.

    Zach Miller was hired as an event photographer for a recent performance where I performed with my jazz band at the Kennedy Center as part of the DC Jazz Festival. The job was one hour. Had spoke to Zach several days before the event due to the restrictions on Photography at the Kennedy Center. Zach was on time and very professional. When I received the finish photos the quality of his work was good. Though Zach was limited on where he could shoot from, the only thing I would have improved would have been the number of close up shots. He shot a range of great long (wide) shots of the band but I would have preferred an equal number of shots at a closer range with a zoom lens where he could have captured more of the emotion of the faces of me and the band members during the performance.
    Zach M. Jun 18, 2015

    Kathy, It was very difficult to catch close up's of the band from the restricted area and my zoom lens was not enough, however, the pictures out of my camera are close to 40 megapixels. With that being said, the pictures are huge so I am actually able to crop down and see their faces. Is that something you would be interested in? If so, please email me a list of photos you would like me to edit. I completely understand where you are coming from because I would have liked to be a lot closer to the band but every venue has their rules. Thanks for everything!

    We are an interior design firm in Austin, Tx. We have reached out to Zach on several occasions for professional photography of one of our client's homes in Maryland. On the business side of things, Zach is a total professional. He responds promptly and politely. His process is seamless from start to finish. Zach has beautifully captured both indoor and outdoor spaces that we designed. He sees unique angles and perspectives, which we appreciate. Our designs aren't ordinary, so we don't want ordinary photos. We love his artistic edge and will continue to use his services.

    I am extremely satisfied with Z. Miller Photography. We hired Zach for a new event on the National Mall for upwards of 700 people. Since this was a new event, we needed someone who was flexible and creative. Zach is just that. He suited up with a participant Tshirt and fit right in with the rest of the crowd. Zach and I had little contact before the event, but he is quick to get a handle on everything! I was very impressed from the first conversation with his professionalism and ability to see the full picture. Additionally, we asked for the photos (unedited) immediately following the event, and he delivered. We couldn't be happier with the results and hope to use his talent again!
  • Npf N. Jun 11, 2015
    Very quick turnaround as requested, professional grade original images of our national fundraising event. Zach was able to provide us with a workaround despite technical issues on our end, and was extremely responsive with all questions, providing full detail and expertise. Zach was by far the most prompt, to the word, and engaging we've dealt with, and will be looking forward to working with him on future projects. Highly recommended!

    Zach is an outstanding photographer. We did a three part shoot for my album: in the studio, portraits, and a location shoot. All three went very smoothly. I am not very comfortable being photographed, and Zach did a great job of doing that. The photos were fantastic! I would definitely hire him again for my next project.

    Zach worked with my organization for a conference we were hosting in McLean for approximately 400 participants. Prior to the event, Zach was very responsive to our ideas and helped us to create a photo-booth for the conference (which was a hit!). At the event, he was incredibly easy to work with. He provided us with beautiful, high quality photos. With all of the other logistics of hosting an event, it was wonderful to have a photographer that was independent and a self-starter. We would definitely recommend Zach

    I have worked with numerous photographers and really must say he is one of the best in the area. His eye and style in his craft --he just knows how to take the right photo. Yet that is not all, he is a professional that will make you comfortable to bring the best out of that moment. He is definitely the 'go-to' guy and being a recording artist, I look forward to working with him on a regular basis. He is just that good.
