Born and raised in Kansas City, Zach became a professional photographer and videographer at a young age. In high school in 2004, he started photographing and videoing Bar and Bat Mitzvahs in the KC metro area. Upon graduation of high school, Zach moved his talents to Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration where he was in charge of photography for several years for one of the largest student-led conferences.
Post college, Zach began living on the East Coast in Annapolis, MD (outside Washington DC and Baltimore) for 3 years. Besides taking photos and videos, Zach loves getting involved in the local community. While in Annapolis, he coached a local 9-10 year old baseball team in his local Annapolis community.
In 2014, Zach moved back to Overland Park, KS to be closer to home and his family. Despite moving, Zach continues to receive inquiries to fly around the country for events. Working in the hotel industry has given him a passion for travel, and he loves to be wherever his clients are most happy. While Zach loves photographing and videoing personal events and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, he's also shot for Marriott, Westin, Hilton Garden Inn, Aloft, Doubletree by Hilton, Courtyard, Residence Inn, Wyndham, independents, and more.
It doesn't matter where your event or business is located because Zach wants to come to you and make your job and life easy! He's professionally photographed and videoed all over the world from Miami to Washington DC to Shanghai, China to Europe and more! You can contact Zachary Ruben Photography, and he looks forward to working with you soon.
