Romantic, Emotional, and Timeless Wedding Photography
Since 2014, I’ve photographed over 200+ weddings in Nashville, TN, St. Louis, MO, and destinations around the country. I grow more in love with my job with every single wedding that I shoot. The joy and excitement of the wedding detail, the meaningful details that brides implement into their wedding day, the happy tears, and the sweet dances with daddy and portraits with aging grandparents … they all take my breath away and make my soul fulfilled.
I enjoy getting to know each of my brides on a personal level. I love having coffee with you and laughing at your stories as you tell me about your first date and your romantic proposals. What I love most is seeing the love in your eyes, and the true love gazes you give each other when you think no one is watching.
As a wedding photographer, I want you to have the best experience possible. Whether it’s helping create a wedding timeline and answering all your wedding planning questions before the big day, or being the wedding coordinator when you didn’t hire one, or helping calm your nerves before seeing your groom for the first time, or finding tissues when you need it most on your wedding day, I am here for you! I’m always available by phone call or email to help make your wedding day as amazing as possible!
On the wedding day, I am always watching, camera in hand, capturing those special moments that you will want to relive over and over again. When you view your wedding gallery, I want you to feel like you’re right there, reliving the best day ever!
After your wedding day is over, I spend hours and hours hand editing and retouching every single photo so that it looks perfect, the colors pop, and the light is balanced. I want your gallery to be absolutely beautiful, and I’m a perfectionist when it comes to post-processing. All of my wedding packages include an online gallery, where you can view your wedding photographs, order professional prints and canvases, download the high resolution images, and share with friends and family, and a print release, so you can print your images wherever you’d like.

Get in touch
First step, contact me! You can email me, call/text me, fill out my contact form, etc. Reach out and tell me all about your wedding day - your wedding date is most important! Find out if I'm available on your wedding day. Include your venue and any other information you think is important! I'll respond back and we'll set up a time to have a Zoom consultation, phone call, or an in-person meeting (this all depends on your preference!).
Have a Call
Next, we'll have either a phone call or a Zoom consultation. (We can have an in-person meeting too, if you want). I'll ask you about yourself, your love story, and you can ask me any and all questions you have about me, my packages, my services, etc. We'll get to know each other, and you can figure out if I'm the right fit for your wedding day!
This is the exciting part! Once you've decided I'm the wedding photographer for you (YAY!), I'll put together a wedding photography contract. You'll sign it, and pay a 30% wedding deposit, and we're good to go! I can't wait to be part of your wedding day!
What's your photography style
DO YOU SHOOT VIDEO?
Unfortunately, I'm not a videographer. Although my camera does shoot video, I don't have experience with wedding videography. Maybe one day, but for now, I only do photography.
I can recommend videographers in the area.
I’m a storyteller at heart, and I love to tell stories through my lens. My photography style is authentic, timeless, romantic, candid, and emotional. I love telling your wedding day story from beginning to end, from the beautiful details you’ve chosen to incorporate to the candid moments of laughter, tears, and joy. In 50 years, I want you to look at your wedding photos and you’re immediately pulled back into the joy and happiness you felt on your big day.
WHAT'S YOUR EDITING PROCESS?
ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR TRAVEL?
Every photo that you receive in your final gallery has been hand-edited one at a time, so that every image is absolutely perfect. I’m a perfectionist, and I want all of my photos to be amazing! You’ll receive most of the photos taken on your wedding day. However, I do remove eyes-closed, someone blinking or sneezing, flash didn’t go off, someone stepped in front of my camera, and unflattering images of the bride and groom. (Trust me – you won’t want to see these photos.) The photos you receive are where you look your best, plus candids of people laughing, crying, and having a blast at your wedding!
Absolutely! I love shooting destination weddings and engagement sessions. I am very comfortable traveling for events. I’ve travelled all over the United States and Europe, and I just love to explore new places.
There is a $1,500 travel fee for destinations that require a plane ticket. But for locations within driving distance of Nashville or St. Louis, I charge $150-300, depending on how far of a drive it is.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO I RECEIVE?
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
You’ll receive SO. MANY. photos from your wedding day. On average, you’ll probably receive 50-100 edited images per hour that I’m shooting. For example, for an eight hour wedding day with one photographer, you may receive anywhere between 700-1,000+ images. If there’s a second shooter, you may receive even more photos.
During low season (Jan-April), you’ll receive your online gallery within four weeks of your wedding date. When it’s the middle of the high wedding season (May-October), I’m shooting nearly every weekend. Weddings during this busy season will be delivered within 6-8 weeks after your wedding. I strive to get your photos as soon as possible!
ARE YOU INSURED?
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GET SICK?
Yes, of course! I am fully insured. I can provide your venue with my insurance information if they require it.
I am 100% committed to my clients, but if I'm feeling under the weather, I will test for COVID. If I have a negative COVID test, I will tell you that I'm sick and let you decide whether you're comfortable with me shooting. If not, I will send my associate photography team to shoot your wedding.
If I get diagnosed with COVID, I will find a qualified photographer to shoot your wedding. I also have a back-up to my back-up, and have a strong network of local photographers who I can call upon in an emergency.
I will still edit all the wedding photos, so the look and style is the same.
Associate Photography Program
"We had Josh, one of Zoe's associates, photograph our wedding. He 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." - ERICA AND JOHN
After missing out on some amazing weddings due to my availability, I’m so excited to announce my Associate Photographer program. If you’re a bride on a budget, throwing an intimate backyard wedding, or having a smaller wedding, hiring a Zoe Life Photography Associate is the perfect choice for you.
Associate packages start at $1,200.
Who is your Lead Associate Photographer?
My husband Joshua is my lead Associate Photographer. He works with a team of experienced second shooters for weddings that request two photographers. When he’s not booked, Joshua shoots wedding with me.
How Does Hiring an Associate Photographer Work?
If you’re interested in using an Associate photographer for your wedding, you’ll inquire and book your wedding through me. I’ll take care of you every step of the way – from wedding planning to helpful tips and advice to make your wedding day go smoothly.
I will still edit all your wedding images, so the look and style of the wedding photos reflects the Zoe Life Photography style. However, Joshua will do the actual shooting on your wedding day.
