I highly recommend Bethany Zadai Photography and her wonderful staff. She scheduled time with us before the wedding to walk through our venue and understand our wishlist. She offered her team to us for more than photography too (small errands between the groom and bride and anything we might need); she wanted our day to be perfect and it really was! Bethany's passion and excitement was very impressive too. A shot that happened towards the end of the night almost brought her to tears. It is clear that her passion is photography and it shows in her photos. Another skill of her team (a 3 person crew!!!) was that they blended in to the background but caught every moment and even more that we didn't even think to want. My mom was thoroughly impressed and my cousin has already inquired about Bethany for her spring 2016 wedding. If Bethany and her team just provided us with perfect photos, it would be more than enough but the package that arrived carrying our pictures was truly stunning!! Bethany sent us a thank you for the opportunity to work with us, a beautiful wooden box containing the flash drive and a baseball themed picture frame (we were married at the Akron Rubberducks stadium). It was so thoughtful!! I cannot say enough good things about Bethany and her team. She made us look good and who doesn't want that on their wedding day?! Thank you Bethany Zadai Photography

Bethany and Dustin did an absolutely phenomenal job photographing our wedding. Prior to the big day, Bethany was always available to answer any questions I had and discuss the logistics of the day and important moments that I wanted to make sure she and Dustin captured. The day of our wedding, they arrived on time and were ready to go. Bethany has a very creative eye for taking artistic photographs that beautifully capture every moment, both during the ceremony and at the reception. Both she and Dustin are very professional in their work and are also quite personable and fun to work with. I would highly recommend Bethany Zadai Photography to anyone looking to have professional photographs taken. The quality of the work and enthusiasm that both Bethany and Dustin bring to their photography made our wedding day even more memorable. I am also impressed with how quickly we received the final photos, it only took a few weeks!

We just wanted to take a minute and share how AMAZING our experience was with Bethany & Dustin. They not only photographed for our engagement but also our wedding. They are THE BEST hands down. The pictures came back perfect and better than you could have hoped for! They are a fun, loving, outgoing, supportive couple and together they just make the experience enjoyable and stress free :) Then, the gift packages put together are so thoughtful and cute! They truly go above and beyond when photographing and will be our first pick anytime we need any type of pictures taken in our future. :)

“Struck by the natural, vintage feel of a friend’s senior portraits, I knew the same
Photographer had to shoot mine: Bethany Zadai. Bethany customized locations, captured my personality, and made me feel comfortable during shooting. She is professional & personable. Her time, attention and creativity resulted in the most Interesting and beautiful photos I have ever seen of myself. I recommend Bethany Zadai Photography often, and with enthusiasm!”

“A Key core competency of Bethany Zadai that sets her apart from other photographers is her keen eye for unique and flattering perspectives, the perfect locations for your shoot, and cohesive photo. Anyone can take a photo. But not everyone is an artist. Bethany is professional. She makes you feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. She provides great communication while shooting and clear direction. There is no other photographer I would recommend higher to capture your best moments.” - Jessica (model photography, portraits)
“Bethany is innovative and creative. Every photo shoot I’ve done with her, she comes with a vision, a positive attitude and a natural ability to get the best photo in the best lighting, angle, etc. Beyond having a natural ability, she and Dustin are a joy to work with, and always make you feel comfortable! Thank you for being you and always capturing these beautiful moments!”

“Bethany is an absolutely amazing talented young lady. I have been the subject of her photos a few times, and each time is an experience. I normally don’t wear makeup, so I always hesitate when she puts it on me. I question her sanity a bit when she has me stand in weird poses, but the end results are remarkable. I’m always blown away by what she sees through her lens, and the way her mind works. Her pictures are exquisite and I refer everyone I know to her. Whenever I make her photograph my main photo, the comments are endless. If you have these masterpieces taken by her, you will not be disappointed.”

My Mom showed me some of the pictures that she had taken, and I loved them. I loved the color scheme, style, and how far from cliché the pictures were! She seemed to go along with the style her clients but added her own expertise. The angles she takes, the expressions, and the places the pictures are taken all add up to their uniqueness. It's not sitting in a chair in front of a pull-down background, with all the T-shirts and awards accumulated through the years. When she took my pictures, we decided on a 20s style, and to take them in Kent. She knew what shops to stop by to get the clothes I needed, and picked out the best spots for the pictures. While I had a particular idea in mind of what I wanted the pictures to look like, she gave me great ideas on how to stand, what to wear at which place, and how the pictures would be colored. When she sent my pictures back, they were so "me" and so well done that I told a bunch of my friends about her, and many of them have gotten their pictures taken from her, too.
