LOVE!!! With engagement pictures and wedding pictures, Zoe really listens to what you like and what your vision is. She does a stunning job making every shot beautiful. Having a lower budget, photography was something we wanted, but didn't want to pay as much as some... Read More photographers charge. I truly recommend every dollar is so worth it with Zoe Life Photography! I will definitely do future photo shoots with her when I have a family. You will not be let down with anything she does! We had a rustic, country, more laid back wedding, but Zoe created gorgeous shots capturing truly all the special moments. Truly an amazing photographer.

I don't have enough great things to say about Zoe. I went through tons of photographers before I found zoe, and I'm so glad I came across her! From the moment I met her she was super nice, and I felt at ease with her. I hadn't met her before our big day, so it was a huge deal... Read More that we felt so comfortable with her! My wedding was at the Nashville zoo and it was HOT and humid and the mosquitos ate us up, but she stayed awesome and didn't complain at all. You can honestly tell she LOVES her job and she takes pride in what she does, I didn't feel like another number, or just another wedding to get a check from. I couldn't be more in love with my photos and I look at them almost daily, just in awe of how awesome they are. I can't pick a favorite! I would recommend Zoe in a heart beat, she is the BEST!

Zoe was great to work with! Our engagement photos capture us at one of the happiest times in our lives. She's so friendly and humble. She knew exactly when and where to take the photos, how to pose us, etc. She's great! We highly recommend her.

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... Read More 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!

I had two different professional photographers at the same time at both my rehearsal dinner and wedding because I didn't want to be disappointed with the results. I mean, you only get married once so I didn't want the regret of my pictures falling flat like I had heard from... Read More other brides who had hired budget photographers. Even though Zoe is reasonably-priced, her pictures do not look like budget photography!!! I am SOOOO glad I chose Zoe Life to be one of my photographers because without her, my photos would have been terrible! The other photographer took pictures from way back -- no resolution, everyone's faces were so small, the pictures were dark, and those delectable little extra detail pictures -- like the sun setting through the trees, the guests other than the bridal party, the food other than the wedding cake -- would have been missed. Zoe's competition (the other photographer) made a scene, saying he didn't know another photographer would be there and even mentioned possibly quitting the job, but Zoe was totally cool with the competition! (I honestly didn't mean for there to be a competition -- I was my own wedding coordinator, was just trying to cover my bases, and didn't know an artist could be so territorial -- of course, Zoe wasn't; she's totally cool!) With two different photographers taking pictures next to each other, I was able to easily see Zoe's amazing attention to detail and gifted creativity! Zoe had the pictures to me within 4 weeks and always wrote me and called me back (Zoe's competition let repeated emails go unanswered and took over 6 months to get me my pictures)!!!!! What would I have done without Zoe!!?? She was also really flexible -- I got married on a weekend in June (right when everyone else is getting married) in a remote location, and she accommodated me!

My name is Richard. I let my bride handle almost all the wedding arrangements. However, being an amateur photographer I was somewhat picky about who we chose to shoot the wedding.
