Libby Zaheri


I started with CMI as a second shooter and I was honored when they asked me to join the team with them.  I have now been apart of this company for over 5 years now.  I have been a photographer enthusiast ever since I was a kid, taking random photos with my parent's Pentax K1000 and their Polaroid.  My daughters have embraced my love for polaroids as well and if they haven't used all the film I bring my polaroid with me on wedding days.  My photography started with shelter pets for local rescues across Ky, while I was a Veterinary Tech.   I have since discovered a passion for people and capturing the moments that are special to them.  To me capturing those moments to make them timeless is what I live for as a photographer.  Just like Chris and Mike I strive to capture my clients personalities in every photo.
