Romantic, Emotional, and Timeless Wedding Photography

We are wedding photographers in St. Louis, MO and Nashville, TN (and destinations). We love weddings. We love romance and capturing authentic love stories in photographs that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Our style is elegant, classic, and candid, and we are passionate about document incredible moments that unfold on a wedding day.

We have photographed over 120+ beautiful weddings since 2014, and we can't wait to photograph yours!

Zoe's wedding collections begin at $2,600.
Associate wedding collections begin at $1200.

Special pricing for destination weddings, and Monday-Thursday weddings. Contact us for more details.

Zoe Life Photography loves working with brides who share a love for natural light, beautiful colors, and meaningful details. From intimate elopements in the mountains to backyard weddings to ballroom celebrations, we love documenting them all. 

The Experience

Since 2014, I’ve photographed over 120+ 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.

A 30% retainer + signed contract is due to reserve your wedding date. Payment plans are available.

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.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ALBUM AND BOOK?

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.

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.

DESIGNING YOUR ALBUM

After wedding gallery is delivered, you select your favorite images from your special day. I will use those images and design your album. I’ll send you a proof. Once you approve the design, it will be sent to the lab and you’ll receive your heirloom album within 1-2 business weeks.

LOVE NOTES

“Zoe did a wonderful job with our wedding photography! Leading up to wedding day, she was exceptionally easy to work with - very organized, quick to respond to emails, had great planning phone call - I felt like we were in good hands from the beginning. During our day, she was polite and agile, capturing beautiful photos but not obstructing anyone's view or being in the way as I have seen some wedding photographers do. Most importantly, her pictures turned out beautifully! She did an incredible job helping us find the perfect formal poses and capturing the candid shots as well. I have had so many compliments on our photos so far!“

LOVE NOTES

“ Seriously, don’t waste any more of your time searching and hire Zoe. She is the kindest person you will ever meet, she is fun, she knows her stuff and her work is beyond perfection. I can’t even tell you how many websites I looked at and reviews I read before I found Zoe and as soon as I started looking at her work, I knew I’d found our photographer. Her ability to frame shots is incredible and the quality of her work is out of this world. She also thinks outside the box and will get some really exceptional photos that will blow your mind. After our engagement shoot, I knew that I didn’t have to worry about our wedding photos because she would exceed our expectations no matter what. Especially since Zoe was always available to chat and was so incredibly helpful with many aspects of the wedding, not just the photography. It felt like working with an old friend throughout the entire process. We had a second photographer for part of our wedding day which I would highly recommend because the two of them were able to capture everything from different perspectives. They captured every special moment and all the little moments in between. Zoe is just the best and I could not imagine a better experience than what we had with her. She was by far our favorite vendor we had during our wedding and I will forever use her for all my photography needs (babies, puppies, puppies and babies). Thank you again Zoe!!!“

LOVE NOTES

“ 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. I cannot recommend Zoe highly enough!“

LOVE NOTES

“ Zoe was wonderful! Leading up to the wedding, she was very detailed in asking for a list of photos that we wanted captured, and also worked with the church to ensure she was meeting all the requirements/restrictions. During the family photos she was able to call out all the different photos we needed which was very helpful and efficient. And during the reception she captured a lot of great shots, and seemed to always be there with her camera when someone wanted a cell phone photo. Last but not least - she delivered our photos within 2 weeks of the wedding which was incredible! The photos were extremely high quality and she really captured the magic of the day. Highly Recommend Zoe!“

“I don't think I can say enough great things about zoe. She was so sweet and professional and you can just tell she has a passion for what she does. She knew EXACTLY how to capture the moments between my husband and I at our wedding. As soon as she posted the first picture from our wedding I was in love. She even rode a carousel standing up to get pictures of us on our "first ride as husband and wife" at our reception at the Nashville zoo and got on a rope bridge with me and my husband to get AWESOME shots. I'm so happy I chose her for our special day! “

FAQS

What is your photography style?

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.

Are you available for travel?

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’s a small travel fee for locations outside of St. Louis, MO and Nashville, TN.

Do you edit all our photos?

Yes, I do! I spend many hours after the wedding day culling and editing photos. 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!

Can we provide you a shot list?

I don’t like shooting using a “shot list” on your wedding day. My goal is to capture candid, raw moments that happen on a wedding day, and if I’m always looking down at your list, I may miss these special moments. “Shot lists” are a great idea in theory, but I’ve shot 100+ weddings and I know exactly what shots I need to capture.

However, I do request you send me a Family Formal List before your wedding day, so that the family photos go quickly and are more organized.

When will we receive our 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 8-10 weeks after your wedding. I strive to get your photos as soon as possible, and I always post sneak peeks in the days after your wedding on my Facebook page and Instagram.

How many photos will we receive?

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 700-900+ images. If there’s a second shooter, you may receive even more photos.

Do you deliver every single photo you shoot?

No, and I promise, you don’t want to see every single photo that I shoot. I eliminate all photos in which you or your guests look terrible (you’re making a weird face, you’re half-blinking, you’re sneezing, etc.). I also remove all duplicate images, missed focus photos, and test shots. I only want you to see the best images where you are looking amazing. You’ll still get hundreds of photos from your wedding – don’t worry!

What if you've never shot at my venue before?

I photograph new wedding venues all the time, and I love discovering new places to photograph. I’m not nervous about new places, and you shouldn’t be either. If I haven’t shot at your venue before, I will do extensive research and scoop it out beforehand. I will also arrive on your wedding day early, so that I can look around to find the best lighting and pretty locations for your images.

Do I need a second shooter?

I have shot many weddings by myself and I’m comfortable doing so, but adding a second photographer has some major perks. For one, I am only one person and I can’t be at two places at once. Having a second photographer will give you more photo coverage. While I’m focused on the main events that are happening, the second shooter can help capture your guests reactions and those candid moments that unfold when no one is looking. Another photographer offers more angles and a different perspective that I may miss because I’m focused on the main events.

If you’re having a larger wedding (more than 150 guests), I highly recommend adding a second photographer.

What happens if you get sick?

I am 100% committed to my clients, and I will show up to shoot your wedding whether I’m sick or not. The only situation in which I won’t be there at your wedding is if I’m in the hospital due to an emergency and physically cannot be there.

In the unlikely event that this happens, I will send my associate 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.

Are you insured?

Yes, of course! I am fully insured. I can provide your venue with my insurance information if they require it.

Do you provide videography services?

Unfortunately, I don’t. I’m a boutique photography studio and only offer photography services. I can give you  recommendations for awesome videographers if you’re interested!

ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHY PROGRAM

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.
