About our fashion art images---
These are images that are shot on a day outside of your wedding date and feature you in your wedding dress, or both you and your fiancee together in your wedding attire. Chris’ mother was a model back in the 1940s and 1950s. She and Chris’ father have been married for over 50 years, and she is now in her 70s. Back when they were married, Mrs. First had images shot by one of the fashion photographers she worked with. To this day, when one of the grandchildren wants to see what Mrs. First was like in her youth, these photographs of her in her wedding dress are the images that she shows everyone. They are a snapshot in time and will be a family heirloom. This was the inspiration for our Fashion Art photography. This is a lasting memory of who you are at this time in your life. It is something that will be cherished for generations to come. Read less

I love Chris and Julie! Their work is amazing, they are so much fun to work with and professional at the same time! On my wedding day, it was as if Julie was another one of my friends helping me get ready, keeping me happy and calm and having a good time talking and hanging out with me while still capturing our moments! I can't wait to see our wedding photos and put our album together with them, but know it will be awesome after seeing our engagement photos they did.

My husband and I were a little weary of spending a large chunk of our budget on a videographer, but let me tell you - they are worth EVERY penny! I have said multiple times that Chip and Rob are worth their weight in gold! They went far above and beyond our greatest expectations. They provided great direction and suggestions when appropriate to ensure we were getting the shots we wanted. They showed up early, they stayed late, they never stopped working, they never slowed down, they never complained, and they really made our wedding day considerably less stressful. Any time I made a side comment of "I wish I had XYZ for these shots", one of them was running back to the bus to grab the item. This is just a small example of how they went above and beyond their duties. Thank you very, very much Z MEDIA!!

Z Media is one of the best photographers I know! I have seen their work before at other weddings and was thrilled to know that they were available for my wedding as well. They take beautiful pictures and work long hours, especially for Indian weddings. One thing that I really appreciated was how calm they are on the wedding day and the way they try and keep the bride calm too. They bring a familiar family feel to the whole weekend. I highly recommend them for anyone event, especially Indian weddings!

Julie, Chris, Jared and the entire ZMedia team made my wedding day more than anything I could have ever imagined. They are so easy to work with and made me feel so comfortable throughout the week and the big day. They treated me like family and friends instead of a client and it definitely comes through in the photographs and video. They made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. I am absolutely in love with my wedding photographs and would recommend the team and their work a hundred times over. They are not only professional, organized, timely, and efficient, but they are just good people. They are attentive and make sure that they are on top of their game. Throughout the wedding planning process the whole team was incredibly flexible and accommodating. They were so willing to meet with m parents and I and prepared to make recommendations to ensure we got the photographs and shots we wanted and ensure the best photos. They truly were able to capture the emotion of my big day and I could not be happier with the end product. All I can say is thank you thank you thank you. You have made me feel so special. Lots of love. xoxo

Our photographer was Abby, and she was AMAZING! I had heard of her through my brother and sister-in-law, since she had photographed their wedding. She was willing to travel to Toledo to work with us, which was a huge plus.

She is VERY sweet, and down to earth; unlike all of the other photographers we had met with from other companies, who were rude, or had super inflated egos. She didn't treat us like a number, or that we were "privileged"to get to use her services. Abby was very good at communicating prior to our wedding. She was quick to answer all of our questions, and she truly cared about us, and what we wanted.

The day of our wedding, she made my husband and I feel like it was all about us, and our day. She talked with us, made us feel comfortable, and kept things interesting. She didn't miss any shots through out the day, and she didn't have a limit on photos (unlike other photographers.)

When we got our pictures back, we were AMAZED. They are beyond amazing. I would not have chosen anyone else. We are so happy to have found Abby, and that we were able to work with her. We LOVE our pictures!!!

We worked with Arthur and he was great! He drove way out of his way just to meet us the first time to see if we even were interested in going with him for the wedding. He is very personable and made us feel very comfortable. He explained everything very well. Z Media was really good about sending me invoices and a sheet to fill out so they would know what pictures I really cared about....which for a super busy, scatterbrained bride was a huge help. When we got close to the date Arthur called to confirm location and time. I never had to seek them out for anything, they were on top of it. Day of, they were really understanding of us ladies getting ready. They did not get in the way at all, but made sure to get the shots of us getting ready. Our bridal party seemed to get along with them well. We don't have all our pictures back yet and it will be awhile before we get our book, so I cannot speak to those just yet.

Chris, Julie, Jared and the whole Z Media team were absolutely amazing. We had a giant Indian wedding over multiple days and events, and every moment was captured beautifully. Every time I look back at our pictures, it makes me so happy and I would never choose anyone else to film such as important occasion. They were completely profressional and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Z Media to everyone.

Everything at Z Media was handled very professionally. I got responses to emails immediately and would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Arthur did my photographs and he was great, very relaxed and professional! He made everyone feel comfortable and we got everything done so quickly without feeling rushed at all.

I, also, used there Shutterbooth service for our party favor and it was a huge hit! Everyone was coming up to me telling me what fun it was. The team at the wedding was great. They were helpful and friendly. I can't wait until the next time I have an excuse to use this service.
