associate photography program

If you love the quality and editing style of Zoe Life Photography but you have a small photographer budget, then the Associate Photographer program is perfect for you! The Associate program is also great if you love our images, but Zoe is already booked on your wedding date or if you only need wedding coverage for a few hours. You will still receive all the benefits that come with the Zoe Life Photography brand, including customized pre-wedding planning assistance, excellent customer service, and beautiful images that you’ll cherish for the rest of your life.

When you book an Associate package, you’ll still work with Zoe every step of the way (from your initial consultation to pre-wedding communication to creating a timeline to editing your photos after your engagement session and wedding), but our associate photographer will be the one who photographs your engagement session and/or wedding.

With the associate program, the look and feel of your photographs will be similar to Zoe’s own photographs.

Associate Photographer Packages include hand-editing of all delivered images, an online gallery (where you can view your images, order professional prints, and download high-resolution images), and a print release.

associate packages start at $1,200

“ Josh was WONDERFUL. He was so fun and lighthearted, and he kept me smiling and laughing and relaxed. Honestly, he was a big part of what made the tone of our wedding day so pleasant. Our photos turned out beautifully! “

Joshua Headshot

Joshua is our main associate photographer (as well as Zoe’s husband and business partner). He’s been working with Zoe Life Photography since 2017. When he isn’t photographing his own weddings, he second shoots with Zoe. His photography style is similar to Zoe’s. He shoots and poses you in the same ways that Zoe does. He is super fun to work with, and will capture all the best and candid moments of your wedding day.

He grew up in Southern California and only moved to the Midwest to be with the love of his life. When Joshua isn’t photographing, he enjoys spending time with Zoe and his family, playing video games, and hanging out with friends. Joshua was also veterinary technician for 12 years and loves animals.

heirloom wedding albums

Your wedding photographs should be printed and enjoyed for many years to come. Digital files can become lost over the years, and USBs can fail or get misplaced. That's why I love designing and creating Heirloom Wedding Books and Albums for my brides with their favorite wedding moments.

Available in a variety of sizes - from 5x5 to 12x12, Heirloom Books and Albums are absolutely beautiful, lay flat, and are available in many types of linens, leathers, and more.


The Signature Wedding Book is the more budget-friendly option. Wedding books have a simplified construction with thinner pages (0.02 inches). It’s available in 20 cover options, including faux leathers, bonded leather, linens, and softcovers. They are press printed on card stock paper and the pages are not mounted.

The Heirloom Wedding Album is handcrafted and made of premium materials. You have 40+ cover options including genuine Italian Leathers, Linens, Cameos, Metal, Wood, and more. The pages of an album are thicker (0.03 to 0.06 inches) and printed on beautiful, glossy photographic paper. It’s a superior quality product and is more expensive to produce. When stored properly, Heirloom Albums can last for 100+ years. They are meant to be passed down through the generations.
