Sara B. – Yelp Review 5/26/2021

We hired a Los Angeles based staff member this spring but due to COVID policies, she couldn’t come to our Boston office to get her staff photo taken. Zarek helped us out, taking beautiful headshots and handling the whole job promptly, professionally, and graciously – for a completely reasonable price. My new coworker said Zarek was great to work with, and her positive experience shows in the photos!

Hi Zarek,
…we have received so many compliments on our engagement pix from family, friends and other wedding vendors. Some say they are the best they have ever seen!!

Debbie & Neil

Dear Zarek,
Both of you were so great to work with. The pictures are wonderful. It’ll be difficult to narrow them down for the wedding album.

Dear Zarek,
I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job you did at Elyssa’s Bat Mitzvah. The pictures you took were beyond my expectations. You were able to capture the feeling of the service and the party. I have been to several Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and your professionalism was noticed by all. Our family enjoyed working with you so much. Thanks again.

You do some very good work. I was pleasantly surprised when I received the photos in the mail the other day.

Hi Zarek,
The photos of the kids are GREAT! I’m very happy with them. I forwarded the picture link to my friends and gave them your info. They all (direct quote) “love love love” the photos! (No surprise.) I told them all that they MUST see you when they need pics.

Zarek’s work is excellent, and working with him was nothing but a pleasure. He captured all the special moments of our wedding with ease and grace. Thank you Zarek for being so easy to work with and for taking great shots.

Mikaela R.

We chose Photography by Zarek for our wedding, and he has been our family photographer ever since. His photographs are outstanding, he has such a creative eye, and the most easy going personality! Since then Zarek has done our pregnancy shots, kids portraits, family portraits for both my immediate family as well as my large extended family, some head-shots for my daughter and husband, and even a fantastic pet portrait! He will go the extra mile to provide the highest quality images and best possible service, and the beautiful memories that he creates are worth every penny!! I continue to recommend him to all of my friends, and every one has thanked me! I am so glad I found him!

Zarek cares about his clients. He takes the time to know them and listen to exactly what they want. He is a very talented and professional photographer. I had called several photographers in the area and no body would take our 3 hour small wedding ceremony on a Saturday and on a budget in July of 2006, in the middle of wedding season. Zarek said let me see what I can do for you and called me right back. We were thrilled and blown away at how he he was able to capture the beauty and spirit of our wedding celebration in such a limited time. He is not only a kind person but one that knows how to make a client loyal to his establishment for a lifetime of memories. I will never go anywhere else.

Ryan and Shannon K.

I wanted to personally thank you for making Shannon’s and my day so special.
You are absolutely wonderful and have my highest recommendation.
It was absolutely perfect…..I wish it never ended.

Jackie E.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos! The choices are overwhelming! By the way, I think the outside wind blown pictures with me in red are tremendous, especially number 33, which I will no doubt print and frame. Thanks again! You are a GREAT photographer!

Katherine D.

I have known Zarek for approximately 10 years. I had worked at the Sherman Oaks Galleria and hired Zarek to shoot pics for our website and brochures. They were gorgeous! Recently I needed some personal photography. Zarek has a very keen eye and is able to capture a person’s essence in addition to making them look good. I strongly recommend his talent and ability. But to top it off he is kind, patient and very giving. Especially with people who are on the shy side and need encouragement.

Mario & Bertha

We interviewed several photographers for our wedding and picked Zarek based on the quality of his work and his value compared to other photographers. He explained in detail what his package contained and how much it would cost to get the types of photos we wanted. On the day of the wedding, he spent all day with us and into the evening and worked hard all day — I don’t think he ever took a break. The photos we got back were amazing and the candids he took were some of our favorites. I highly recommend Zarek to anyone in Los Angeles looking for high quality professional photos. We had a lot of confidence in Zarek when we started our project and it came out better than we expected.


We have known and used Zarek for years and are always very happy. The photography he did for us was amazing and the book absolutely phenomenal! We will continue to use him in the future for all of our events.


Zarek is the kind of photographer you want for any special event. He’s friendly, upbeat, energetic and has a great eye for capturing just the right moments.

Michelle B.

Zarek, was the photographer at my baby shower and also took pregnancy maternity photos. He did an amazing job and exceeded my expectations. He was able to capture the moments of the party and we are so fortunate to have these beautiful pictures. The maternity photographs were amazing and you could tell that his attention to detail and direction during the photo shoot really made all the difference. I highly recommend him. Thank you so much Zarek you are a true professional and we will definitely use your services again.

Lihi L.

The pictures are the best! This is what I wanted.

Andrea and Scott

We absolutely love our wedding photos and constantly are looking at them. You did such an amazing job!


I just wanted to let you know what wonderful pictures you took of Aaron and Suzanne’s wedding. Also…those shot earlier at the beach too. They have no idea how difficult it is going to be editing them since there are so many good ones. Obviously… they both felt really comfortable with you behind the camera.
Great job!!!!!

Sherwin and Deb

Hey, we just had a chance to see the video of the Black Belt Ceremony. What a terrific job you did with the video!!
