Hey There  


Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Zach Murphy and though I am often found

on the other side of the world, Syracuse, N.Y. is my home. I

am passionate about telling and sharing stories, 

whether it be your wedding, humanitarian relief in Africa,

or the beautiful nature of Kyrgyzstan. I have been to 

over 75 countries documenting weddings and local 

culture. I look forward to working with you.


The bottom line

What is this going to cost you?
As you are looking for someone to capture your loving legacy, there are many numbers flying around. As we begin the conversation I want you to know up front what some of the average prices are of the services I offer. I want to be as affordable as possible for you, while offering you the highest quality of service and product, all while putting food on my own table. That being said, all of my packages are negotiable as we find a price that makes us all smile :)


Engagement $350

I love engagement and couple sessions. I find myself the most creative during these. It is often a time for me to first see you interact as a couple and we can all get very creative without the time and location restraints of your wedding day. Typically we will shoot for an hour and a half with a few outfit changes. My goal is for you to have the fun-nest date night of your life and forget I was even there!


Wedding $2500

All of my wedding packages include full day coverage. Once I am hired, the whole day is yours. I love to capture the whole story, from the quiet morning moments as you get ready with your best friends until your final send off! You will always receive all the rights to your photos and there are options to add on print packages, custom photo album, and handcrafted heirlooms.



Wanna run away to a remote island or secluded mountain top with the one you love? So do I! Invite me along and together we will create some of the most magical memories and have the adventure of a lifetime. As a travel photographer on the side, I am very savvy in the world of travel and would love to help you along the way as you plan this intimate getaway.

Zach was organized and worked hard to get the pictures and poses I had requested on my wedding day! He directed my husband and I and gathered all our friends and family to get large group photos. I would highly recommend Zach to anyone. He is professional, respectful, fun, kind, and focused on his clients and his craft.

It was great working with Zach, he listened to everything my husband and I wanted in pictures and made it happen! Zach took the time to work with us in the blazing heat and never once complained. He worked great with everyone in the wedding party including the kids and did his best to make us feel very special. Zach’s pictures show his love for photography which in the end helps us keep the memories of our special day.

Zach was an amazing photographer and captured our day perfectly! We loved having him and are very grateful. He did such a good job and was able to make the day go smoothly with his attention to the details, professionalism and ability to get a bunch of crazy family to listen for a moment to capture the day. Definitely would recommend him!
