Zev is the best!
Was fun and grate day
Elopement in the Mountains
From tying my husbands tie to staying longer than expected, Zev made our special day unforgettable with extraordinary photos for a lifetime!
We got the elopement package (covid time) and we were worried we might not get enough family photos but Zev made it work 😊 I would recommend this service in a heartbeat!
The Absolute Best
He captured all of our memorable moments during our wedding and we couldn’t have chosen a better photographer. Thanks Zev!
The best I've experienced.
After seeing his work at my in laws wedding I knew it had to be Zev for my wedding, no one else.
From the consultation, which was personal and informative. My now wife and I had no idea what we were looking for and were I'll prepared, Zev came with advice and ideas as well as his list of vendors. Through zev we sourced our DJ. (We had already found the rest of our vendors)
Wedding day he was early, he was very fun to be around and work with. He was not intrusive but felt like a member of the group while we were getting ready
With full day coverage we also got a complimentary engagement session and we couldn't be happier with that idea! We didnt even plan on getting engagement photos.
During the wedding he had to bring in a second shooter for a specific request (at no extra charge!) She was also great to work with we loved her.
Zev captured every moment we wanted and more. Moments we didnt know we wanted to remember untill we saw our photos.
Zev under promised and absolutely ABSOLUTELY over delivered.
I love his natural editing style, or lack of editing rather. The fact that my images look amazing without needing post production touch up says everything.
From start to finish I am more than happy with my choice to invest in photoart4u for my wedding and If I had to do it all again I would use Zev again.
Cant forget my impromptu man pregnancy session during my photos with the best man! (In photos)
Very flexible (available for my thursday wedding)
I dont think I have enough room to carry on with this review.
Thank you Zev for your hard work and beautiful photos of my wedding. Thank you for the knowledge you've passed on to me and for making my memories last forever.

My name is Zev and I'm a Calgary based wedding and lifestyle photographer.
I love working at our amaizng backyard (Canadian Rockies) but I'm also available anywhere on the globe, depends on the details of your wedding/event/project. In case you're planning a destination wedding - I have special and exlusive offers for "bucket list" destinations.
Photography for me is a way of life. As much as I love my free and quality time, you will rarely find me without a camera in my hand...
You probably have heard the traditional - "I love what I do" statement...
For me - "I DO what I LOVE" - and I stongly believe there is a difference.
I'd love to hear from you and if we're a good fit - I'd love to capture the story of your Big Day.
