Zach Teris Photography for Offbeat Bride

I have 2 amazing dogs with about 50 nicknames between them. I love the outdoors, camping, hiking, and (not surprising) photography. I've been shooting since high school and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Being able to experience a couple’s day with them and give them something they can hold on to for the rest of their lives is an amazing feeling. My goal when I pick up my camera is to do just that, to give you a genuine moment to hold on to.

It’s important to me that a couple has fun and enjoys their day when they’re being photographed. I understand having a camera pointed your way isn't a natural feeling, so I want to make you’re as comfortable in front of the camera as possible so your photos are a true reflection of your day and your relationship.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I cater to offbeat couples because I love non-traditional weddings when couples ignore predetermined wedding "rules," and instead focus on ways to make their day personal, creative and fun. Great photography thrives off creativity, and a creative and offbeat couple means more imaginative photographs.

I want you to look back and relive your wedding through genuine and beautiful photos, to see yourself and your wedding day for exactly what it was and not an awkward, stiff or overly posed moments.

Thanks for taking the time to read through what I have to say. If you think we'd be a good fit, I'd love to hear from you!

"Zach did our wedding and engagement photos and we could not have been happier with him and how beautiful our photos turned out. Starting with the engagement session, Zach made us feel comfortable and gave us good pointers on angles/poses/etc. While it was initially awkward having a stranger taking such intimate photos, we felt completely at ease by the end of the session. By the time of the wedding, we had been in touch with Zach several times and developed a good rapport. On our big day, he was timely and professional and was flexible enough to add on some extra time at the end of the night, which we really appreciated. The photos he captured of us and our guests were simply stunning, particularly the candid shots. He really encapsulated the joy and love that we experienced that day and we received so many compliments on the beautiful photos. In addition to his professionalism and talent, Zach was kind, funny, and a pleasure to work with. We hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future when we decide to expand our family!"

"Zach did our engagement and wedding photos and they were fantastic. We needed someone who could be flexible since we live out of state. The whole experience was seamless. We barely knew he was there during the big moments. We had so many beautiful pictures come out. We didn't always know what direction to go in and Zach was there to give us so many great suggestions but also accommodate the pictures that were really important for us to get. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. Zach gave us one less thing to worry about on our big day but we have lots of awesome pictures to remember it by."
