When you are actually connected to each other and to your photographers, you feel comfortable and that genuine love comes out naturally. We love being married and working together because it means that when we photograph weddings, it’s like a great double date! When you have that, you have real emotion. And that real emotion creates photos that live and breathe and pulse with your story.
We strive to photograph and live by this principle. It not only makes our job beautiful, but meaningful. Our lives are an outpouring of love, care, and connection. Our care will translate directly into the authenticity of your images.
You are the stars. We want every moment to be yours, so we find the flow of your relationship within your day. We don’t post up like wallflowers, but we’re also not calling attention to ourselves and taking selfies, trying to rack up more Instagram followers. We’re genuinely interested in chatting with your grandma and dad and we usually (no pressure) get invited to take a shot with the wedding party. But we never EVER take the moment from you.
We're Zach and Jodi and we're a couple of photographers who live in Portland, ME when we're not exploring the rest of New England and the world. Together we've been to over 30 countries and love learning everything about a place. That's why we're so excited to explore your wedding venue, learn about you as a couple, and take some amazing photos with you! We're explorers first, photographers second and we think that actually makes us better photographers.
Zach and Jodi have a contemporary, photojournalistic style. We offer professionally edited, high-resolution images for all of our weddings and you can add on albums, canvases and prints. We also offer the following:
Day after sessions
All of our packages are customizable based on your needs so if you're curious if we'd be a fit for your wedding (because let's be honest, photographers are third wheels in the best way possible) then send us a message! We love getting to know you!
Go book The Camerados (Zach and Jodi) right now. These two are truly talented. The photos were beautiful--the color saturation was so vivid and like nothing I had seen before.
We were looking for a photographer to take some pictures of us on our wedding anniversary. We are not Portland residents, and Zach and Jodi took the time to send us a handful of places to take photos at and helped us get a feel for what we should expect venue wise. I knew I wanted us to be near water, and they had plenty of suggestions--one even with a lighthouse and it felt perfect for New England.
This is a small detail but it had a big impact. Zach started off the session with a little story about love and us and talked about romantic and happy thoughts. He said this all while my husband and I were hugging each other. His story was calming and meaningful. This started us off on the right foot--we immediately felt comfortable with them.
Zach and Jodi guided us and suggest poses...but nothing th... Read moreat made us feel awkward. They both were willing to stand out in the December cold and Zach was willing to get wet to capture a great shot with the water crashing against the rocks. They were so fun to work with they made us forget how cold and windy it was outside.
Zach and Jodi are so much more than photographers. They are great people. They are fun! And you just want to grab a drink with them and get to know them. So that's exactly what we did.
Recommend 10/10 for whatever photography purpose you may have!
