Welcome to Zerbe Photography!

Hello, I'm Wayne, the proud Owner of Zerbe Photography. As a photographer, educator, and business leader, I've been dedicated to capturing the essence of special moments since I embarked on my professional journey in 2014. When I'm not behind the lens, you'll likely find me enjoying a cup of coffee, indulging in tacos, or making Wawa my second home (apologies to the Sheetz enthusiasts out there). Sharing a movie or musical experience with my wife Alexis, our son Brody, and our lovable Golden Doodle Carly is one of my favorite pastimes.

Zerbe Photography has been part of the Lancaster, Allentown, Philadelphia, Reading, and areas beyond for over 46 years. In 2022, I took the reins with a mission to carry forward the legacy of Dave Zerbe, the original studio owner. Our portfolio boasts stunning and timeless senior photographs, family portraits, baby and children portraits, school portraits, business portraits, wedding portraits, as well as framing and photo restoration services.

At Zerbe Photography, we're not just about capturing images; we're dedicated to telling your unique story through our lenses. We are committed to guaranteed quality and, most importantly, creating an amazing experience ensures that you receive timeless portraits that reflect the essence of you and your family. Thank you for considering us to be a part of your special moments.

What is everyone else saying?

Friendly and was able to restored my late wife’s photo that I found damaged.


My husband and I chose Dave Zerbe Studio of Photography to capture our November wedding and we could not be happier. From the initial meeting with Chad, to our “get to know you” session and wedding day photography with Dave and Wayne we knew we were in great hands. The memories they captured were spectacular. Beautifully done and priced right. I really cannot say enough great things about the entire staff at Zerbe Studio and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Wayne and Ashley did such an amazing job on our wedding photos. All of them came out amazing and we couldn’t be happier with them. Zerbe has been the best people to work with. Our engagement photos were phenomenal as well. Wayne always does such a great job with capturing the best background and what’s going to make your photos amazing. We definitely plan on using them in the future. Go to Zerbe you won’t be disappointed!!!

Wayne is amazing! With his expertise in wedding photography and professionalism my wedding day was magical. Very friendly and accommodating to all my needs. Wayne is fun and energetic. Couldn’t have picked a better photographer for my wedding.

I cannot say enough good things! We worked with Wayne and we had to schedule based on traveling into the state, we had a huge family session so having everyone there was a lot, plus with life being crazy there was a lot that went into this session and Wayne was AMAZING throughout all of it. He was great with kids and pets, captured our family photos beautifully (and we are so excited to see the rest of the final products!) and everyone couldn’t stop talking about how amazing he was. Will definitely be using him and his team again in the future!!

The friendly staff made us feel at home. Bonita and Chad were so cute and energetic with our little boy to get the right shot. Chad captured excellent and artfully composed images and we cannot wait to continue to work with him through the baby club!

Wayne and his wife were amazing! They knew going into our wedding day that our husband and I were not photo people but they did an amazing job to keep us going and taking all the pictures they knew we wanted even if it seemed like we didn’t! They were so much fun to have at the wedding and encouraged our guests to be their cray selves! They are so personable and just amazing photographers. I cannot wait to see the final results of our wedding pictures because we know that they are going to be absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for making our day amazing and capturing those moments!!

We hired Zerbe Photography and got a dynamic duo, head photographer, Wayne, and a wonderful second shooter, Colleen. I could not be happier with our choice to go with Dave Zerbe Photography. Wayne was on it from the beginning. We live about an hour away from him and he was willing to meet us near us for our engagement session. He made us feel comfortable and was the perfect level of professional, fun, and goofy. Prior to our big day we met to review all of the shots we wanted. The attention to detail in our shot list was important to us so that we got photos with the right groups of family and friends. Wayne and Colleen did not disappoint. They spent the entire day with us and did not hesitate to capture every moment, big and small. Wayne was great a wrangling in a big crowd while still being respectful and fun. I’ve only seen a few previews so far but I am so happy with those photos and cannot wait to see the rest.

Wayne did photography for our wedding. He does an amazing job and is extremely communicative throughout the process. I hate getting my picture taken and he made the whole process fun and engaging. Most importantly, all the photos came out amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for photography services for any event whatsoever, he and his help are great. Thanks Wayne!

Having Wayne as our photographer was the best decision we made! From the start, he was super organized and our consultation meeting, we barely had any questions because he was so thorough when going over his packages, what is included, how the day will operate, etc. He was also so quick to respond and helped us a lot with picking out outfits for our engagement session and getting our timeline set up to work best for us. He delivered our photos ahead of when he promised and I love that he includes the standard high resolution and social media files. The day of the wedding he was not only our photographer but also our day of coordinator. He helped getting everyone set up and put into place and even put my veil on a second time since it was falling out! he was able to take pictures of us in every location we requested and have some fun suggestions for group poses. He covered every single part of our day and we didn’t feel as if any photo opportunities were missed. We also got our wedding album through him and he sat down with us and created a beautiful album that we will have forever. I cannot recommend Wayne enough, he was truly the best!


Wayne was pure sunshine on our wedding day. He kept everything lighthearted, took great photos, and even assisted with some coordination. I would highly recommend choosing Zerbe Photography for your wedding.

This is going to be a long, thorough review. And Wayne, I hope you see it.

I just got the first proofs back from my wedding and WOW. I am stunned– I mean… I look STUNNING. Wayne and Zerbe Photography made my (new–yay!) husband and myself look beautiful. Our bridesmaids and groomsman look gorgeous as well. Not only did he stage us excellently in both our wedding and reception venues, he made it FUN and was FUN to be around. Daniel (my husband) and I had a blast with Wayne and Mackenzie (his second set of hands that day). They were professional, light-hearted, and took our joy in stride–keeping pace with the events of the evening.

Now, the photography speaks for itself– so go look on his website, but I must speak to all the “thousand words” that hides behind the excellence of his work.

Wayne and his group will help you plan your day! One of the best and de-stressing things that Wayne did with Daniel and I was sitting down via Zoom, screen-sharing a time chart, and writing in events as they happened. Not only did I NOT think to do that, I realized that by hiring Zerbe Photography (and more importantly Wayne), that I was bringing an ASSET to our wedding rather than a hindrance (like other photographers seemed to be). I have always been in the “do it myself” mindset, but with Wayne, I found I could relax with my new husband, enjoy my day, keep off my phone (because I knew how amazing his photos would be so WHY feel the need to take any of my own), and just… be “married” (haha get it–like be MERRY).

Anyway, you should hire Zerbe. I wouldn’t come on here if I didn’t have only the highest recommendations to give. I’d also splurge on their photo-video package. It costs as much as some SINGLE photographers or videographers. I can’t recommend them enough. And hey–if you aren’t getting married, Wayne said he’d do my future author headshots, so the man’s versatile. (All I’m saying.)

Congrats to you and your partner–I wish you the best and would like to offer you the best with Zerbe Photography. Cheers!

We would recommend everyone to go to them because the experience is amazing and the photos come out amazing and beautiful. Wayne and the girls are so nice and so down to earth. Everyone in the wedding party was having so much doing the pictures. Thank you so much for everything.

Wayne did such an incredible job capturing our small and intimate micro wedding. As someone who is not comfortable in front of the camera he made me feel so beautiful and made the process easy breezy. The pictures turned out better than I could have imagined and I’m so happy I got an album made, to have these pictures and memories for generations to come. Waynes attention to detail building the album was so helpful, I chose the pictures I wanted and with his artful eye he arranged them to tell the story of the day. I could not recommend his services enough. Thank you Wayne!

I cannot say enough kind words about Wayne… To start, he has a contagious energy! He constantly makes people smile and laugh and was the best person to spend our special day with. I’ve worked with a lot of other photographers in the past and he is by leaps and bounds the best I’ve ever worked with! His energy, his time management, his photography skills, and his communication and leadership skills are beyond expectation. He did a few of my friends’ weddings and I knew I HAD to have him for mine. He and everyone I’ve met thus far from his company are simply incredible not to mention very affordable too! My little brother is autistic and sometimes has trouble following social cues and directions and Wayne was a ANGEL with him. Wayne even offered to take several photos on my brother’s early 2000s point and shoot digital camera for him and it absolutely made my brother’s day. The fact that he patiently took time to interact, help, and take photos for my brother shows what a kind, genuine, and professional human Wayne is. This guy is literally THE best!

Jasmine was his second on our wedding day and she was amazing as well! Such a kind energy with a fresh perspective! She took direction extremely well to work with Wayne like a well oiled machine. I HIGHLY recommend Wayne, Jasmine, and Zerbe Photography. I would give them 10+ stars if I could!
