Hi all, I'm Amber Zacharias - I am a wife, momma bear to our son Elijah, and my rescued furbaby Nellie. I grew up being driven by the arts. This is what led to my passion in portraiture and wedding photography. I strive to bring beauty and light to those around me. So, I began bringing my dream and vision of my own photography business to life. I believe everyone should know how beautiful and important they are in this world. I work with each client to achieve that one person at a time. Each moment is precious - my goal is to help you preserve the ones that are important to you. Contact Us to speak with my team further about booking your photography needs today!

We understand that no two people are the same. Keeping that in mind - we take the time to tailor your experience to you!
In our initial consultation we ask a series of questions that help us get to understand your personality and general preferences.
During the session and/or event we adapt the different needs of each individual to create a comfortable atmosphere that allows us to show your genuine connections, capture laughter, and create real life memories for you to cherish with your loved ones. 
We then take our time to create your images.
Every session ano/or event gets delivered via an online viewing gallery for you to download, order prints, and share on social media.

Your session/event is unlike any other.

How far in advance should we book?

Sessions have a turn around time of 2 weeks, while weddings and events generally have a 4-6 week turn around.

how soon do i get my images back?

Yes we do! All bookings require a deposit to lock in the date and time of your choice. Payment plans vary based on how far out the date is. This is information that we recommend to go over during the consultation.

Do you offer payment plans?

We describe our editing style as vintage romance. A mix of vibrance, moody, and matte textures.
