Timeless, Romantic, and Genuine
ST. LOUIS AND NASHVILLE WEDDING + PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER
Zoe Life Photography is a portrait, family, and wedding photographer in St. Louis, MO and Nashville, TN. We are passionate in documenting love stories and beautiful families. Our style is candid and emotional, and my goal is to capture those genuine and authentic moments frozen in time that meant so much.
Life is fleeting and every moment is so special. Photographs freeze those little moments that can slip through our memories, but they’re printed for you to remember forever. Photography is an invention that help document our experience as human beings, and to help us remember the past. That’s what we love about photographing families, babies, and weddings. Our team loves capturing those precious moments in time, so you can relive it over and over again. Since 2014, we have photographed 120+ weddings in Nashville and Franklin, TN; St. Louis and St. Charles, MO; and Destinations.

SERVICES WE OFFER
HI, I’M ZOE
I’m a hopeless romantic, coffee addict, and visual storyteller with a passion for telling love stories (yours!) and capturing intimate and authentic moments through my lens. I have a special love for natural light, bright and pretty images, and classic photographs that will stand the test of time.
My wedding photography has been described as romantic and airy, emotional and candid, capturing the emotions of your wedding day. I love making real connections with my couples and bringing out their personalities in my portraits. I will create images that tell the story of your wedding day in the best way possible.
When I’m not photographing engagements and weddings in St. Louis and Nashville, I’m a portrait and family photographer. I love taking photographs of happy families and beautiful newborns. If you’re looking for a family photographer in either Nashville or St. Louis, send me a message or schedule a phone call with me. I’d love to work with you!

"Words cannot describe how phenomenal Zoe is and how incredible her photos are! My husband and I recently got married this fall in Nashville and Zoe shot our special day. We live in California, so we were not able to meet with Zoe in person prior, but she was super accommodating and set up phone calls and answered every single question we ever had. When it came time for our special day, she got every single shot we desired plus SO MUCH more. She has such a creative eye and was able to catch every special moment for both the wedding party and our guests who attended. We were a little nervous about not having a videographer for our wedding, but we ended up with over 1,800 photos- ALL which are incredible and captured the entire night...so we did not need the videographer at all! We still constantly get compliments on how gorgeous how our photos turned out and we cannot thank Zoe enough for her incredible work and for capturing images that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!!"

"Zoe was a pleasure to work with! We live in Nashville and our wedding was in St. Louis so it felt meant to be when we found Zoe that lives in both cities. We were able to do our engagement photos in Nashville since the wedding was in St. Louis, and I love that we have pictures from both places. She made us feel very comfortable while shooting and she made the wedding day easy and fun! Definitely a good pick!"
- Allison and Stephen
"Finding Zoe was one of the luckiest parts of the planning process. When I came across her site I knew I'd found the perfect photographer to capture our day. Her romantic and natural styling spoke to the theme of our wedding - the stunning light we were dealt the day of the wedding only helped to highlight her incredible shots. Zoe truly wanted to capture each moment the way we'd envisioned. She was thoughtful in her planning and execution, we are still in awe of the shots and couldn't have asked for a better experience or result. Looking forward to working with Zoe in the future for life portraits. Thank you again Zoe!!"
- Nicole and Neal
"Zoe was the best wedding photographer a couple could ask for. Not only is she professional and kind, she is a KILLER photographer. Our engagement photos came out stellar and our wedding photos were beyond perfect. Zoe knew how to capture that true candid moment that emulated the love my husband and I share for each other, and that was the most important thing to me while I was searching for a wedding photographer. I would absolutely recommend Zoe to anyone who wants their most special moments photographed to cherish forever."
- Dana and Ryan
"Zoe with Zoe Life Photography shot both our engagement session earlier this year and then our wedding this past September and I could not say enough great things about her and her photos. Zoe was kind, wonderful to work with and incredibly creative when it comes to getting the best photos. She has great instincts and not only captured our big day beautifully but really showed off our personalities as well. I think one aspect Zoe excels in is making sure she captures those precious moments in those natural candid times that my now husband and I were just enjoying being together not worrying about posing and smiling for the camera. As beautiful as our portraits are, some of those natural photos turned out to be my absolute favorites. Our photos from both sessions turned perfect and both my husband and I would recommend Zoe and Zoe Life Photography to anyone in need of a great photographer!"
- Jennifer and William
"Zoe has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She did our engagement photos back in December and they are beyond gorgeous. We hired her to photograph our ceremony and portraits (we were on a budget and she happily helped us figure out how to stay within that budget). I could not be happier with our choice of using Zoe for our special day. She is so professional and adaptable. She has endless patience and will make you feel at ease immediately. She will be our go to photographer for all our professional photo needs :) definitely consider booking Zoe for whatever you need, you won't be disappointed!"
- Julia and Ethan
"Zoe is such an amazing photographer! Our venue canceled on us the night before and Zoe was able to adapt right away and got some amazing shots for us! With how hectic things were it was such a relief to completely trust her. We got our photos quickly and love every shot out of the over 1000 images we received. Thanks Zoe!"
- Jonathan and Mary
"Zoe was so fantastic. She was incredibly professional, fun, and truly cared about getting the best photos she could. During the wedding, she went out of her way to get a perfectly lit photo of us that my father-in-law requested (night shot under a lighted arbor). Zoe's assistant, Josh, was also great. My husband really got along with him which made the day even better. Zoe's style is simple, elegant, and romantic. I like that she doesn't over-edit the photos; they looked so natural which is what I wanted. She was able to capture the feeling of the entire night. Whenever I look at a photo, I am brought back to that exact moment - the feeling, the sound, the atmosphere. Overall, I am SO pleased with Zoe's work, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer."
- Amy and Tyler
"We chose Zoe as our wedding photographer because we loved the romantic, artistic style of her photographs. But we also loved that she managed to capture the personalities of the people she was photographing in a natural way. And those two elements definitely came through in Zoe’s photographs of our wedding. The photos are stunning and turned out better than we could have hoped they would. It was freezing the day of our wedding (single digits), and we took photos outside, but you would never know it was that cold from looking at the pictures. Zoe did such an amazing job capturing the spirit of our wedding and we have some truly gorgeous images that we will cherish forever. On top of how beautiful the photos are, Zoe was so friendly and easy to work with. She asked us all the right questions before the wedding to make sure she knew what style we wanted and which shots were the most important for her to capture. She also found a beautiful abandoned church right down the street from our venue and suggested that we go there to take some of our bride and groom portraits. We never would have known about it otherwise, and the photos from the church are some of our favorites from our wedding. With the backdrop of the church, they really are works of art. I cannot recommend Zoe highly enough!"
