Our May 18th, 2013 wedding was made more special because of the way in which Z Media captured the day.
When asking our wedding planner who we should enlist for Photography/Videography, the answer was quick and decisive - "Z Media".
From our first correspondence with Julie and Chris to this very day, they have been nothing but professional. The planning process with them was very smooth. We were well-informed at every step of the process, and they were polite and prompt with all communications, answering all of my questions and keeping everything organized for us.
The planning process was impressive enough, but on the day of our wedding we were ALL blown away. I've never had my expectations exceeded so much by anyone. While at the salon with my girls, my dress and accessories were photographed at my home. To my surprise, there were AMAZING, creative and very surprising photos taken (i.e. my wedding shoes in my dining room chandelier!). Chris and Julie, as well as our videographer (Mike), did such an awesome job of being present but not intrusive the entire day. I heard so many compliments from guests and our wedding party ("they were so pleasant" "they consistently worked hard to capture every moment" , etc.). I can't say enough about how professional and pleasant they were to work with.
When we received the photos? Blown away. SO many moments were captured. The quality of the photos (lighting, etc) is amazing. PLUS, we have a TON of proofs. I just am so very pleased with everything. We don't have a single complaint about anything.
I have to say - we were a little nervous about the cost - they weren't unreasonable about ANYTHING, however we didn't know how much of our budget should have gone to photography/videography. I can say now that the process has come to a close - we have no doubts, and not one single regret in spending what we did. The services and quality of work from all aspects of Z Media were worth EVERY penny.
Chris, Julie and Mike were amazing to work with. I have never been happier with a product. ALSO - I have to add that EVERYONE who has seen our photos has done nothing but RAVE about them. So original and so beautiful. As soon as I opened the file with our photos, I instantly began to cry. It was as if I was experiencing the day all over again.
CHRIS AND JULIE - You are AMAZING at what you do. I can't thank you enough for being a part of our wedding experience! THANK YOU!!!!!

Christopher and Julie First were incredible to work with. They captured every moment of the day and the pictures turned out amazing. Both Christopher and Julie were professional and also fun to work with. On the wedding day, Christopher and Julie were practically members of the wedding party. They got along well with everyone and did a wonderful job of getting every moment on film. I highly recommend ZMedia to any bride and groom who are looking for talented, professional photographers.

These girls were such a blast to work with and made every photo shoot (engagement, shower, and wedding), so much fun. Can't recommend them enough!

We had Julie and Chris as our wedding photographers, and they both were extremely nice, professional and produced the best wedding photographs we've ever seen! It's been hard for us to narrow down which photos we DON'T want to enlarge and hang on the wall because they are all so fabulous! Every picture looks like it could go in a magazine! They were so easy to work with through the whole process because they have a great online system set up for their clients to ensure no details get missed. The day of our wedding, they arrived early, had great ideas, and were so easy to work with! If we had to do it all over again, they'd be the first vendor we would make sure to book! We couldn't be happier!

I honestly do not even know where to begin. Julie and Chris First of Z Media went above and beyond the call of duty. They were more than my photographers...they were my friends. When things got really crazy during wedding events, they were one of the only ones who made sure I was alright- everything from making sure I was always hydrated to making me laugh when I got really nervous. One thing I will always remember is when Julie came to be with me when all of my family and friends had to be downstairs to welcome the groom's side before the ceremony. I was starting to get really nervous by myself, but then Julie showed up and made everything better. She even got some great shots of me while I was waiting. Their work is creative, artistic, and classic. I am so lucky they were able to capture our special moment. I would highly recommend them.

It was such a pleasure working with Chris and Julie, they are great and fun to be around while remaining professional and doing what they do so well! We love our photos and are excited to continue working with Z Media in putting our wedding album together. So worth the money spent for their services!

I was overly satisfied with the service and quality of my pictures from Z Media! They really care about your big day :). No only were they the sweetest people but they also produce the best work! I have gotten so many complements on my pictures! You are crazy if you go else where! Thanks to Z Media for helping to make my day the best it could be!

We were lucky enough to have Chris and Julie photograph our wedding. We knew the moment we met with them over coffee that they were a great fit for us. Julie was so calm and comforting as I anxiously waited to walk down the isle. I was so impressed with them and their work! Extremely professional and their work is phenomenal. We just received our beautiful album and it also came with 2 smaller parent albums and will make wonderful gifts! We highly reccommend them!

Z Media made my wedding look like a dream come true! Planning a destination can get to be a little stressful but the most important thing to me was having amazing photographers to capture all the special moments in a unique and beautiful way. From the beginning, working with Julie and Chris was very easy and they went above and beyond to make sure they were prepared for our destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico. They are very professional and were helpful throughout the 4 days they were photographing us. Julie even helped my out with other things when no one else was around like fixing my necklace, pinning my outfit and most importantly helping me relax. We could not be any happier with the way all of our pictures turned out. There eye for scouting out different locations, background, angles, and lighting made our pictures looking stunning. Indian weddings have so many things going on and they managed to capture everything including all the little details in a very beautiful way. We were so lucky to have been able to find Z Media and work with them on one of the most memorable weekends of our lives!

Christ and Julie first from Zmedia did an amazing job at our engagement shoot and our wedding. We knew from the beginning they would be an amazing team to work with as they are sincere, fun-loving, professional and truly passionate about photography. During our wedding day we spent the most time with our photographers, and they whole time they were so focused on us and went above and beyond their job descriptions to make our wedding day unique, flawless and memorable. They captured every moment of that day, looking back at the pictures we're experiencing more of our wedding day than we experienced they day of. The final pictures were delivered in a more than timely fashion and the editing is flawless. We especially like the different "imaging styles" they used. Zmedia is a fantastic photography company and we would used them again in a heartbeat!

My husband and I were recently married in Cleveland Oh. For us personally the photographer was our most important vendor, not only would this person be responsible for capturing our day but they would also be a part of it, sharing all the special moments. For us, selecting Zmedia as our photographer was an easy decision, besides their obvious ability to photograph, they are fantastic people who love what they do and made the process fun and enjoyable. Our family and friends all are amazed at the work done by Zmedia and we LOVED everything!!

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 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!!

I can only say thank you to the Z Media team. The week of my wedding and the wedding day were more than anything I could have imagined. They were truly a pleasure to work with. I had the pleasure of getting to know Julie, Chris, and Jared before even getting engaged when they took photographs and video for my cousin's wedding. Right away I knew I wanted them to take pictures of my wedding. They are simply the best. So easy to work with and made me feel like I am a friend and not a client. They are such a good group of people and their pictures are absolutely impeccable. On the day of the events they were organized, showed up on time, and extremely professional. Additionally, they were extremely flexible and accommodating, taking the time to meet with my parents and I throughout the wedding planning process to ensure that we got all of the photos we wanted and the best version of them.
I just received my wedding photographs and I could not be happier. They highlight and capture all of the emotion of my big day. The Z Media team have a very special place in my heart. Thank you again for capturing the most memorable week of my life.
