After more than nine years as a professional wedding photographer, I've noticed something about the more than 200 weddings I've shot: No two are alike. And a uniquely personal wedding deserves a uniquely personal wedding album, one filled with images showcasing the little details that make you a one-of-a-kind couple and your wedding an event like no other.

This is not your parents' wedding photography. My style is bold, confident and tailor-made to match the life you are starting together. Your photos will be modern and edgy, made truly memorable by my innovative use of lighting and color and the unexpected nuances that make all the difference. A wedding is a collection of moments - the walk down the aisle, your first dance together as husband and wife, a quick loving glance into each other's eyes. Finding those moments and preserving them for you and your loved ones to cherish for years to come is my number one job as your wedding photographer.

It is also my job to contribute to the joy you experience on your special day. With a charismatic personality and a sincere love of my work, I turn brides into fashion models and weddings into photo shoots. You'll feel comfortable in front of the camera and natural in your role as the star of the show. I have a special knack for bringing even the shyest clients out of their shells. And I never stand still: I'm always looking for a new position, a new angle, a new way to find those candid, spontaneous moments that will radiate from your photos.

My goal is to create photos that will sweep you off your feet. As a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) and the Professional Photographers Society of Greater Washington (PPSGW), I remain at the cutting edge of the latest trends in the industry while maintaining and honing my own unique vision and style - a style that earned me the WeddingWire Brides Choice Award 2009 -2013.

Moshe and his team were the most amazing choice for our wedding! We had a city wedding with some unique requests- no pictures of the bride and groom before the ceremony, rooftop/windy pictures before, quick time allotted for pictures before the reception, outside city shots- and they worked with each request to make us feel special and that we got each shot that was important to us. I was also concerned about our dimly lit ceremony space, and when I saw the final pictures, I was relieved to see how well-lit and beautiful the room looked. Moshe even altered his travel arrangements by a day to accommodate our wedding date and stayed until the very last person left, despite an early morning flight. I would absolutely, 100% recommend Moshe for your wedding photography, as well as other significant life moments. We are grateful that Moshe was able to capture our special day.

Nothing but the Best! Moshe is an amazing photographer and absolutely wonderful to work with as far as the professional details as well as the photography sessions. Moshe joined us for our destination wedding in Florida. He flew in early so that we could spend time at my family's farm as well as a day driving around the island taking Engagement Shots. We had so much fun with him and his team and the pictures will last a lifetime! The day of the Wedding we spent the whole day capturing all the details of getting ready, seeing each other for the first time, the ceremony and our intimate dinner reception. I am still blown away by the pictures every time I look at them, but more than that, Moshe was truly a part of our Wedding and his ability to get to know you personally so that he can capture those intimate moments of your wedding day is remarkable.

Moshe and his team are AMAZING!! We had several meetings to talk about the photos and the album options before the wedding. Moshe's studio is so fun to visit and he makes you feel like you are seeing an old friend when you walk in the door. The engagement shoot is included in the package and the photo shoot was so much fun. Moshe took us to some of his fave spots in DC and the pictures came out BEAUTIFULLY! The wedding day flew by, but Moshe and his team made our family and friends feel comfortable and they took some incredible shots throughout the day. We would highly recommend them and are grateful that we have such beautiful memories from our wedding day.

Easiest part of my wedding planning was hiring Moshe as my photographer. I've known Moshe for several years now and I always knew I wanted to use him for my wedding day. His work is remarkable and the best part is that Moshe and his team were really easy to get along with. Moshe did my wedding and engagement photos and I was so happy with everything; he even showcases you in one of his blog posts :) He knows some great spots to take some great photos. He was worth the price. Very professional, reliable, high quality service! Thanks, Moshe!!!!!

Moshe made our dream of amazing wedding pictures come true. He is an extremely talented photographer and his quality of service and professionalism are exceptional. Along with the wedding pictures, he made a custom package for us with other two photoshoots. Both of them were also amazing. The pictures are so beautiful, some people who don't know us directly think they were taken for a magazine, they don't believe it was an actual wedding. We just can't say enough good things about Moshe and his team.

Also, I think it's also important to say that I first met him at a fundraiser, which says a lot about his character, and the fact that he care about others, and not only about making a profit for his business.

Thank you so much Moshe!

Moshe was absolutely awesome! We knew that we had finished searching as soon as we saw his work and after meeting him we knew we were right. He was always completely professional, warm, and encouraging throughout the process and his results speak for themselves. He kept us on schedule and running smoothly the day of the wedding and was very adept at keeping a "large" wedding party (which included 10 Naval Aviators) in line and under control for our shoot prior to the ceremony. If you have any doubts, your search is over - if he's booked on your day, you should probably change your date!!! We can't give him a strong enough recommendation - you will NOT be disappointed!!! He's worth every penny!!!

You are searching for a wedding photographer and have made it to Moshe's page. Congratulations! Your search (should be) over! You should stop looking at other photographers now, call Moshe, cross your fingers and toes that he has your date available, and then book him straight away.
Moshe is fun, professional, and extremely talented. He genuinely enjoys photographing weddings and he is amazing at it. When I saw the photos from my wedding it was almost as if I couldn’t believe that I was looking at MY wedding. They were sexy and fun as well as beautiful and peaceful.
On the day of your wedding you will be around your photographer more than any other vendors. For me, having Moshe as well as his team there only enhanced the day. We could not have asked for a better experience before, during, and after the wedding than the one we got. I can recommend Moshe with absolutely no hesitations.

Moshe and his team were the centerpiece to our wedding. We conducted an exhaustive search for the right photographer as we placed a tremendous amount of value in our photographs, after all after everything is said and done you are left with your photos and videos to capture the big day. Moshe was amazing to put it simply. From the engagement photos to the wedding pictures, he displayed and uncanny sense of framing beautiful shots and the end product was even more impressive. We have had many family and friends comment on how amazing the pictures are. He went the extra mile for us as well, from creating prints for our frames to a blown-up picture which we proudly display in our home. He is highly personable and reliable, I would strongly recommend him to anyone in search of a top notch photographer. In the end we not only found someone amazing to take our pictures and capture the day; we also made a dear friend in the process.

Sincerely,

Alexander

We cannot say enough good things about Moshe and his team. My husband and I got married in Leesburg, VA on the weekend of the superstorm. It was at least 104 degrees outside, which made the inside incredibly difficult to keep cool. Regardless, Moshe was amazing. Only the youngest guests were dancing, but he managed to get images of everyone. The pictures of the ceremony are our favorites. Moshe et al showed up early to set up their lights - and it was totally worth it. the images turned out perfectly.
I would hire Moshe again in a moment. He's amazing and so is his work.

Moshe shot our engagement session and our wedding day, which was at the Peabody Library in Baltimore.

First and foremost, Moshe runs his photography business as a truly professional business. You can expect a detailed statement of work as well as services being provided as outlined and in a timely matter. There never was a gap in communication. We definitely appreciated his professionalism.

One of the main concerns in selecting our photography was how well he/she would photograph the venue, which can be tricky due to high ceilings and the lighting. Moshe and his team were able to figure out the lighting, and they delivered amazing candid photos. We relied on him to capture all parts of the day because we did not have a videographer, and that decision paid off.

It also helps that it is fun to work with Moshe. He’s easy-going and personable, and knows how to support his clients.

To be fair, Moshe’s services come at a premium. If photography is not important to you, then look elsewhere. If you are willing to invest in timeless, photojournalistic pictures, then we think Moshe is one of the best options out there.

As soon as I saw Moshe's portfolio online, I knew I wanted him to take our engagement photos and the photos of our wedding. His posed pictures are striking and glamorous. He incorporates DC sites and city streets, which was exactly the look we wanted. Moshe was professional, reliable, and fun, and he was extremely responsive anytime we had a question throughout the months leading up to our wedding. I don't like having my photo taken at all, but his demeanor put me at ease. He was great about finding out from us what we wanted and making that happen, but when we didn't know or didn't have a preference, he guided us in a good direction. He found all of the sites for our engagement photos, which we LOVE, and he referred us to a great DJ who kept us dancing until the end of the night. We had an unconventional wedding (my dress was green; our dogs were the ringbearers; one of my bridespersons was male) and Moshe rolled with all of that and captured it in just the right way. I had one moment where I thought, "I really hope there's a picture of this" -- and as soon as I thought it, I saw a flash go off. Either Moshe or one of the two other shooters he brought caught everything that was important to us. He customized a package for us and I just love the pictures he took. His website says, "I turn brides into fashion models and weddings into photo shoots.

As soon as I saw Moshe's portfolio online, I knew I wanted him to take our engagement photos and the photos of our wedding. His posed pictures are striking and glamorous. He incorporates DC sites and city streets, which was exactly the look we wanted. Moshe was professional, reliable, and fun, and he was extremely responsive anytime we had a question throughout the months leading up to our wedding. I don't like having my photo taken at all, but his demeanor put me at ease. He was great about finding out from us what we wanted and making that happen, but when we didn't know or didn't have a preference, he guided us in a good direction. He found all of the sites for our engagement photos, which we LOVE, and he referred us to a great DJ who kept us dancing until the end of the night.

Once the wedding planning process begins the time flies and before you know it, the day has arrived. In speaking with numerous married friends we noticed a similar comment bubbling to the surface: "We wish that we had put as much importance on our choice of photographer as we did on our venues." At the end of the day it is the photographs that will endure and tell the story.

If you want to have your wedding day captured in ways that you never imagined, to have a record that is more than just the standard "formal shots" and to have people continually asking you "Who was your photographer? Those photos were amazing!" then Moshe is your man!

Moshe and his team will be involved from the beginning of the day through to the end of your reception. Even if you think they are not around, trust me, there's a camera lens focused on you that will capture a photo you never expected, but will love. If you are uneasy in front of a camera, Moshe's style and relaxed approach will soon have you truly enjoying the whole experience. Taking the photographs will actually turn into yet another fun experience in the day.

Look at Moshe's website and blog and then get in touch with him. You'll be happy you did.

It was great to have Moshe as our photographer. I could have not asked for a better experience. He is caring, brilliant, innovative, professional, down to earth, funny and flexible. He really cares about the quality of his work. I was happy with everything from the day we started planning with him (about a year prior to the wedding) up to post wedding follow up and delivering the greatest quality. He is very easy to work with and always has great ideas.

I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with Moshe in both a professional and bridal capacity, and can safely say he is the most talented photographer in DC. I met Moshe when we needed professional stills of our executives during congressional hearings/board meetings. When I saw how glamorous he could make older businessmen look, I knew I had to have him photograph my wedding. In fact, Moshe was the very first decision I made regarding the wedding (aside from my husband of course)-- everything else was secondary.

When I told him that we didn't have a venue picked out yet, Moshe was the one who suggested that we try Woodend Sanctuary based on the fact that we wanted something casual but still elegant. We fell in love with the site immediately and never would have had our wedding there if it hadn't been for Moshe. Throughout the planning process, Moshe was full of useful advice and recommendations.

Moshe insists on conducting an engagement photo shoot a few weeks or months before the wedding. Not only do you come away with gorgeous shots, but as a bride you get accustomed to his style and Moshe gets a feel for what you are comfortable with and how you interact with your spouse. For our engagement shoot, Moshe was incredibly flexible and agreed to spend his day in Baltimore with us.

Moshe also only uses other professional photographers as his second shooters, rather than an assistant. This distinction really shows up in the finished results, as there is no disparity whatsoever in the quality of photos contingent upon which photographer took what pictures. We were so lucky to have Noah Hayes, of Noah Hayes Photography, as our second shooter for both the engagement session and wedding day. Moshe and Noah worked together seamlessly and made an incredible team!

As I didn't have a wedding planner, Moshe proved invaluable on the actual wedding day. He knows all the nuances and customs associated with weddings and was vital in telling my husband and I where to stand, how to cut the cake, how to toss the bouquet, etc. These things seem minor but his suggestions ensured that the pictures turned out perfectly.

From finding our wedding venue, to providing absolutely stunning pictures that we'll cherish the rest of our lives, Moshe is more than a wedding photographer-- by the end of your wedding Moshe becomes a dear friend. We will always look back on our wedding knowing that Moshe was the best decision we made (aside from choosing each other)!

My husband and I were absolutely thrilled with the work that Moshe did for our October 30, 2010 wedding; everything about our experience with Moshe was wonderful.

We knew Moshe was the photographer for us when we first met him for our initial consultation. Not only did we love the style of his photogrpahy, but we were impressed with his professionalism and passion for wedding photography. We were treated to a very complete and perfectly concise presentation of his work and his photogrpahy services.

We had met with other potential photographers in the DC area and it was clear to us that many of them were simply photographing weddings as a means to another professional goal. It is abundantly clear that Moshe photographs weddings because he enjoys them, not to produce a paycheck.

Our engagement session with Moshe was great- he was patient with us and captured some wonderful shots. Seeing the high quality of his work only made us more excited to see the final product of our wedding photos.

The day of our wedding, Moshe and his team arrived on time for a bridal party shoot prior to the wedding. He was able to direct us and our eight-member bridal party with ease. I was certain that our family photos, which were comprised of far more people, would prove more daunting, but Moshe did a wonderful job there, too.

Overall, Moshe was extremely professional, punctual, talented and fun. We so enjoyed having the opportunity to work with him and we are happy to highly recommend him.

Moshe is an absolute pleasure to work with and was above and beyond my favorite wedding vendor!

When I first saw his work, I knew I wanted him to do our engagement photos (we lived in DC at the time), but was hesitant on hiring him for the wedding since it was all the way in Austin. However, after the blast we had at our shoot and seeing the fantastic results, we knew we had to hire him for our big day!

We've only seen a small preview of the wedding photos, but people have already gone crazy about how amazing they turned out! I seriously cant wait to see the rest!

He's is hands-down the best photographer you will find. His professionalism, artistry, and amazing personality certainly deserves more than 5 stars!

My partner and I are both experienced visual media professionals working at the top of our fields, so we're pretty accustomed to the best quality creative work. While we knew we could trust Moshe to deliver great images of our wedding, we had no idea just how spectacularly and sensitively they would capture the exuberance and emotion of the evening. There is bound to be some positive prejudice because the images are of us, our family, and friends, but even applying our most stringent editorial and artistic critique criteria, the images simply soar. Moshe is also just a genuinely nice guy, personable and a pleasure to be around. If you're considering your choices of photographer for any special event, you can stop looking. Bravo Moshe.

One small note about WeddingWire. Perhaps you might consider adding more inclusive graphic options of same-sex couples next to reviews.

He is also very responsive (he almost always emails you back immediately) and timely (we got the digitals of our wedding photos within a month or so of our wedding). Yes, he's not cheap but I have definitely found that with wedding vendors you pay for what you get, and Moshe doesn't nickel and dime you- he was very generous with his time and went above and beyond what I expected from a wedding photographer. You will not regret hiring him!

We would never have found Moshe without the help of our amazing planner, even though he lives literally one block away from us, and we are so thankful that we did. He was the first, and only photographer we met with and within the first few minutes of our meeting, we knew he was hired. We told Moshe we wanted all the shots that other photographers miss in a photojournalistic style. As few posed shots as possible and attention to the details of the wedding itself. Boy, did he ever deliver. His style, approach and work ethic matched ours to a "T" and his product speaks for itself. The only word I can use to describe our pictures is spectacular. They exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We actually just got all of the pictures from him last week and are finding it almost impossible to narrow down the ones we want to put in our album - yes, they are all that good. Feel free to interview other photographers, but in the end, there is no one who compares to Moshe.

Moshe has an eye for the details, movement, and affection that comprises your wedding day, as well as the ability to be flexible and relaxed throughout the process. An engagement photo shoot is included in some of his photography packages, and this allowed Moshe to get to know our style prior to the wedding.

He uses extremely high quality photography equipment that creates colorful and crisp photos. Everyone couldn't stop gushing about the pictures after our wedding - including me! Not a moment of our big day was lost, thanks to him. The emotion of the day just shines through them, and I strongly recommend him to any DC area bride and groom!

He was also very flexible with his time. He allowed us to do our engagement shoot over two different days. He was at the hotel for the wedding early and stayed late. He was able to post some of the pictures of our wedding to his blog within days. We were able to see them while on our honeymoon. Can't wait to see all the others! From the select few he posted, I can only imagine all the beautiful shots he got.

"From day one of meeting with Moshe, it was apparent that he is both passionate about his work and responsive to his clients' desires. You can look at his work on his website, on his blog, and on Facebook. It is clear to see that quality is his primary concern. Within 24 hours of our engagement session, he had the photos posted online and sent the files to us. The photos were beyond our expectations. We used one of his photos for our Save-the-Date cards. They were such high quality that some of our friends and family actually thought we'd sent them an advertisement for a local magazine!


In the year leading up to our wedding, emails were quickly answered. Each email made us feel as though we were his only clients, though we know for certain we were not! When the big day finally arrived, he put all of the subjects at ease. This included my 87 year-old grandmother who positively hates being photographed. Within 30 seconds, he'd disarmed her objections and had her smiling before he even took one picture of her. The formal posed shots that normally seem endless flew by, and he and his second shooter (Noah Hayes) melted into the background of the ceremony and reception. I don't think I saw them in a single one of the guests' photos. They must've been camouflaged! Our wedding day was an absolute blur, and going back through the photos reminded us of many highlights that we'd almost forgotten about. In 50 years, we'll still be able to look back and remember that story, if only because Moshe's Canon was hiding nearby unbeknownst to us.


Yes, you can find less expensive photographers in the D.C. area, but ask yourself, "Do I want to sacrifice quality for a few dollars on the most important day of my life?" On the flip side, we found others who cost far more, but didn't have the same stunning photos to back up the cost. The only other photographer we'd considered would've cost us more money, and we wouldn't have gotten the rights to our own photographs. One month after the wedding, we had a flash drive with all of our photos on it. I have friends elsewhere who had to wait over a year to get theirs.


If you want all of your guests, friends, and family alike to be simply stunned by your wedding day photographs, hire Moshe. You won't regret it."

Being a diligent and thorough bride and groom, Travis and I spent days researching the very best photographers in the DC area for our June, 2010 destination wedding. After narrowing our choices down from the initial 225 to 4 of the top photographers based in DC/MD/VA ~ all high-end, proven professionals with exemplary ratings and recommendations ~ we met with each of them in person. It was immediately apparent to us that Moshe was a step above the rest - in presentation and accomplishment surely, but also and most importantly, in personality, dedication, and thoroughness. We could not be happier with our decision to have Moshe capture our wedding weekend! The photographs from our wedding weekend in DC are proof of his unbelievable skill and ability to capture every facet of emotion and scene of the occasion. We have received literally HUNDREDS of accolades and comments that our photographs are "magazine quality and capture the wedding perfectly" from friends and family. We cannot believe we are going to have to narrow down the hundreds of photographs to our top one hundred for an album! What you cannot see in the photos is Moshe himself, his assistant professionals, and his PERSONALITY. He goes above and beyond and cares as much and maybe MORE about the capturing the day as the bride and groom do. We have already done all the research for you - and Moshe's work is proof itself. If you are having a wedding in the DC area - go with Moshe Zusman. You will believe it to be the absolute best decision you made regarding your wedding ~ just as we do ~ if capturing your wedding as beautifully as possible for remembering the rest of your life is important to you!

Being a diligent and thorough bride and groom, Travis and I spent days researching the very best photographers in the DC area for our June, 2010 destination wedding. After narrowing our choices down from the initial 225 to 4 of the top photographers based in DC/MD/VA ~ all high-end, proven professionals with exemplary ratings and recommendations ~ we met with each of them in person. It was immediately apparent to us that Moshe was a step above the rest - in presentation and accomplishment surely, but also and most importantly, in personality, dedication, and thoroughness. We could not be happier with our decision to have Moshe capture our wedding weekend!

Moshe has amazing talent. He was always in the right place at the right time but never in the way. He knew exactly where to be and when. He also took great natural pictures. We rarely ever had to hold a pose. Moshe took his pictures in a flash so we were able to enjoy our wedding and each other without having to worry about "capturing the moment". He was truly the best money spent for the wedding. His talent and attentiveness allowed our most precious memories to be captured forever!

There are really no words to describe how satisfied my fiance and I were Moshe Zusman's photography services. We interviewed about 3 photographers, none of which possesed the quality of work that we were looking for. We were kind of getting disappointed about this, but as soon as we interviewed Moshe, we knew that we had found someone great. Not even 45 minutes after the interview, we placed a call to him to secure our wedding date. He worked with our busy schedules (he even came out to do our engagement shoot while with his wife at home, due to give birth at any moment). The pictures turned out GREAT, as we are normally pretty bland when it comes to posing for the camera. Moshe stepped right in, directed us into position and produced the best pictures I've seen us take as a couple. His associates Noah and Sarah were fabulous as well; they were able to capture a significant amount of beautiful photos on our special day. Moshe is very professional and if it were possible, I would rate him way above 5 stars. Everyone raved over our Engagement photos, as well as our wedding pictures and if any weddings (family or friends) are to take place in the future, we have Moshe's number on speed dial! *smile*

When it comes to having a wedding, everyone has an opinion! From the flavour of the cake we chose to the D.J and even the open bar. Some people loved certain things and other hated those very aspects. When it came to Moshe Zusman it was unanomous..everyone LOVED his work and more so they loved Him! I received more compliments on Moshe"s pictures, his professionalism and his personality than any other detail of my wedding...except my dress of coarse because I have impeccable taste!;) As I have said before and will say again; If Moshe charged a Million dollars it would be worth every penny. He is amazing and he cannot be out done. He listened to what I wanted and without effort delivered the perfect pictures. We are so lucky to have worked with such an amazing talent. I will treasure my pictures forever.

When we asked Moshe to shoot our wedding, we got a wonderful and accommodating photographer, and photos that are gorgeous and unforgettable. We were just thrilled that we found Moshe and recommend him without hesitation to every couple out there – you will not be disappointed!

We called Moshe only a few weeks before our wedding, which spread over two days with a fairly small group. He quickly arranged for an engagement photo shoot and helped us develop a strategy for taking pictures during wedding. He took the time to ask us what we were looking for in our wedding photos and to show us examples of past work as a guide.

On the weekend of our wedding, Moshe was a pleasure to have around. He made us and all of our guests and family members feel at ease. We had the freedom to fully immerse ourselves in the experience without worrying about whether our photographer was capturing all the right moments.

Every single time I have shown our wedding photos to family and friends, we have gotten waves of “oos” and “ahs.” The photos are truly gorgeous. They showcase every person in the best light possible, and capture all the lovely moments we remember from our wedding.

We can’t fit enough praise into this review. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have found Moshe at the last minute. We will enjoy our photos for many years to come. A million thanks!

The photos taken of our wedding were fabulous! Moshe had an artistic eye for color and moments to capture. He is a photographer who clearly possesses extraordinary talent and understands the art of wedding photography. Some of the shots were of our "private European villa" and looked like they were from a magazine. We found Moshe to be extremely patient with us and our children. Moshe was able to capture startling, candid shots of our 10 and 13 year old, as well as of our dog. In addition, Moshe was spontaneous and agreed, without notice, to trek to the Lincoln Memorial to take shots prior to the wedding. His timing and artistic sense is flawless. In sum, we would most highly and without reservation recommend Moshe.

The most important thing to me while planning my wedding was that I surround myself that day with people who made me feel comfortable. As soon as I met Moshe, I knew he would fall into that category. Actually, when I met him, I immediately called my fiance (now husband) and told him, "Well, if for some reason he is not our photographer, I'm still inviting him to our wedding because he was the nicest person I've ever met!" So, of course we chose Moshe! I wanted to do our engagement session during the cherry blossoms, but it rained the day that we had planned. Moshe was going out of town shortly after, but was able to arrange his schedule to fit me in the next day before he left and the cherry blossoms would no longer be in bloom. During the time leading up to our wedding, Moshe was very responsive and answered any and all questions I had almost immediately after I contacted him. As far as the wedding, I don't know what I would have done if Moshe wasn't there. Not only did Moshe take the best wedding pictures any bride could ask for, he kept me calm and feeling like things were running smoothly the entire day! It was almost like he was a photographer and wedding coordinator in one! I absolutely love Moshe's photographs - I believe they speak for themselves. I really can't thank Moshe enough - he was by far the best vendor decision I made for the entire wedding - and really, the pictures are the most important part! Your wedding will come and go, but your pictures are forever. I'm so happy that Moshe was responsible for mine......

Of all my wedding vendors, Moshe was the most professional and personable. From beginning to end, he was there to document our story and throughout, he was the calm amidst the chaos and the eye of the storm. Moshe was adroit at transitioning from one event to another and remained inconspicuous among our guests. He made us feel and look beautiful and eased the stress of a wedding with his wit and charm. We all have a few good pictures but if you want an entire album of beautiful images and a lifetime of memories, I highly recommend Moshe. He is THE BEST!

He offered an engagement photo shoot which gave us an opportunity to get comfortable with each other and to find out what style of photos we liked. He was responsive to our questions and helped us create a fantastic photo album. He was professional, reliable, flexible and an absolute pleasure to work with. We couldn't have picked a better person to record the happiest moments of our lives.

There are no words to truly describe how happy we were with our wedding pictures from Moshe and how much we enjoyed working with him. He is professional and fun and becomes a good friend through the process. From our awesome engagement pictures to our gorgeous wedding pictures: all of Moshe's pictures were over-the-top amazing!! They are modern, classic and timeless. I cannot recommend him enough. His prices are more than reasonable for the GORGEOUS product that we received. After having seen the end result, I would have paid triple for it. You can only hire a photographer for your wedding once, so it HAS to be the right choice. I still get teary-eyed looking at the pictures which is exactly what a bride should feel looking at her wedding pictures. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Moshe. You are the best!!!

From the very first moment we met Moshe, we knew he was the one we wanted to document our special day. Not only is he an exceptionally talented photographer, but he took the time to really get to know us. That is what differentiates him from every other wedding vendor: he took sincere interest in us and he did his research. He got to know our styles, our quirks, our personalities, our likes and our dislikes. This undoubtedly made it possible for him to capture on film the very best of who we are as a couple. He is a true professional and a true artist.

Even when we had to throw together a quick ceremony one month before the wedding because of my husband's ailing mother, we did not have to think twice about calling Moshe and asking him to help. Without any hesitation, he simply said, "I will be there."

During our wedding, Moshe was there from the very beginning to the very end. We kept saying to each other several times throughout the day that we hope we would be able to remember certain moments of our wedding forever. Everytime we said that, we would turn around and see Moshe clicking away. We knew that his photos would capture our memories exactly the way we wanted to remember them.

Not only do Louis and I feel so lucky to have found the perfect photographer for our wedding, but we know we have found a new friend that we can count on to capture all of our life's special moments.

Moshe, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We dealt with a few not so great wedding vendors so I was so appreciative when Moshe returned all of our calls promptly and took a geniune interest in what we wanted. I would highly recommend him for any event and plan on using him again for baby pictures!

Moshe is amazing! He was so professional, so energetic, and so creative. He insisted on a pre-wedding session that worked perfectly as a practice run. We got to know him, and he got to know us, and he's so easy-going that by the time our wedding came around, it felt like we were having our pictures taken by an old friend.

On the day of the wedding, Moshe handled everything (including the pouring rain) like a complete pro. He worked around the fact that the wedding was inside (instead of out, as was first planned) and there was only limited space for pictures. When Moshe sent us a sneak peek of the pictures he and his two assistants took, they blew us away. His style and eye are both amazing.

We feel so lucky to have had Moshe work with us. Not only was his work great, but we're so sure that his business is only going to skyrocket!

Moshe worked with us closely - and went above and beyond - to make sure our photos and photo package were exactly what we wanted. The quality of the photos and making sure we were happy was always his number one priority. He also brought a very artistic style to our shots where they felt like they belonged in a magazine spread or a gallery, and was particularly exceptional at capturing details (shoes, dress, flowers, cuff links, etc.) That said, I know he will shoot in whatever style is appropriate to and wanted by the couple. Finally, he is just a lot of fun!

Selecting Moshe as our photographer was hands-down, the best decision we made for our wedding. Moshe was always extremely professional, and just a really good, nice guy to work with. Talk to him for 5 min, and you can immediately sense that he has a passion for his work and is dedicated to making sure you capture your wedding in a way you want to remember (honestly, better than you remember). He will take posed photos of family and friends if you desire, but he excels in capturing the moods and emotion of the event by taking photos while you just "do your thing." Just tell him what you are looking for and he will do the rest - completely hands-off, you don't have to worry about it. Somehow, he's never "in the way" and yet captures pictures you will love for a lifetime. He was extremely accommodating with my and my wife's crazy work schedules and he works quickly - finished albums can come back in a few weeks, not MONTHS. Not to mention that the quality of his work (and the associates that work with him) from the first time you meet, through the wedding, to final photo albums is absolutely the best we saw.

Bottomline, planning for a wedding takes a lot of time and can create a lot of frustration and anxiety when trying to schedule and deal with vendors - save yourself the trouble and hire Moshe. You will be ecstatic when you see the results. The only other suggestion I could offer is to book him early. His great work has not gone unnoticed in the DC area. Thanks Moshe!

Selecting Moshe as our photographer was hands-down, the best decision we made for our wedding. Moshe was always extremely professional, and just a really good, nice guy to work with. Talk to him for 5 min, and you can immediately sense that he has a passion for his work and is dedicated to making sure you capture your wedding in a way you want to remember (honestly, better than you remember). He will take posed photos of family and friends if you desire, but he excels in capturing the moods and emotion of the event by taking photos while you just "do your thing."

Moshe was an excellent photographer! Not only was he professional, prompt, easy to work with, and very friendly- his photos were amazing. We had a difficult wedding location to photograph in (alot of windows and different lighting) so I was concerned about how the pictures would come out but they looked great. All of my guests were very complimentary of him and really liked his work. I highly recommend him for any occasion!

Whatever I write about the talent and the exceptional work of Moshe Zusman Photography will not be enough. He is one of the BEST photographers I have ever met and incredibly talented and passionate about his work and clients. Not only he is a great photographer but he also has a positive and wonderful attitude. I had the best experience as a bride with my wedding photographs. I love my photos and could not have asked for better pictures. They are going to stay with us for the rest of our lives.

We have only the most wonderful things to say about Moshe Zusman and his work! From start to finish it was not just a good experience but a superior one! He worked with us to capture our entire day and not just take the expected posed 'photos'. Within two days not only did have photos for us, he had put together a slide show for us that we were able to send to our guests! His work is quite simply stunning.

On a professional level, he was respectful of the restrictions of working in a church and considerate of being in a private home, particularly in efforts to capture the bridal party and family before the wedding. He captured some of the most perfect photographs when we did not even realize he was there! Other times, he made us stop and focus so that we might get group photos of all of our guests.

Moshe gave us some of the best advice that day. He reminded us to slow down, and enjoy the day, it was not a race! We did, and in turn, he was able to capture great photographs of special moments!

I would highly recommend Moshe Zusman!

Moshe was our favorite vendor! On our wedding day, Moshe was very attentive to our needs and interests. His photos captured the spirit of the day and will serve as a perfect reminder of the importance of our day.

During the ceremony and reception, Moshe worked with the space and created lovely photo poses for our wedding party. He was adventurous and constantly sought to take the best photo shots. He was flexible and innovative.

Moshe's presence also helped to relax us. In addition to taking beautiful photos, Moshe stepped in and helped out during common event planning mishaps. He did everything he could to make us smile.

Book Moshe for your day and you'll be pleased!

We hired Moshe for our wedding and engagement photos and it was truly one of our best decisions (not including deciding to get married of course). Moshe is an amazingly talented photographer who blends a great artistic vision with a wonderful client management approach. We recommend him completely and without reservations. He was always easy to reach (both by phone and email) and responded quickly and thoughtfully to any of our questions. He has a highly energetic approach and was truly invested in working with us to produce great photos. He was extremely flexible and open to feedback. Our family could not be more thrilled with how the photos turned out... in fact, several people commented that the photos were the best wedding pics that they had ever seen. If you haven't done so, I suggest looking through his blog and website to see how he consistently produces memorable images. I would give him more than 5 stars if that was possible.

My husband and I found Moshe Zusman after becoming so frustrated and disillusioned with other DC Metro area wedding photographers. My husband and I were having a very simple and nontraditional wedding and needed a photographer flexible to our needs without trying to fit us into a traditional wedding photo bracket. Quality photographs were among our top priority for our big day and Moshe made it so easy for us in actually listening to our ideas, and truly being supportive and up for anything. As a result my husband and I got exactly what we had wanted. Romantic and intimate photos that took place at the Jefferson Memorial and around several gardens of the Smithsonian Institution. Moshe was able to capture the true sentiment of our love for each other, while also provoking forth our personalities to have truly touching photos. My husband and I had such a great time with Moshe, and it was honestly our favorite part of our big day. Moshe was so easy going, creative, and truly supportive our needs - everything a bride needs on her wedding day.
