Once you have your wedding venue booked contact me and I'll see if I'm free on your date.
If I'm free I'll send my info + pricing guide, or if not I'll recommend other awesome photographers who'll take good care of you!
The next step is either meeting at my studio in the Mission District or speaking by video call.
I want to hear all about your love story! It's a chance to get to know one another informally before making a decision.
You'll both need to sign my contract online to make it official (regardless of who is paying).
Shortly after the contract is signed I'll send your invoice link to pay, also easily done online.
Usually it's 50% down to book. The full balance is due if your wedding is within a month.
We continue to collaborate. Happy to suggest local vendors that match your style & budget.
I'll get some info from you via an editable document so everything is locked down for your wedding.
I'll also lend you my expertise as the plans take shape. We'll hop on the phone for a final run-through.
07. HOW DO YOU WORK AT A WEDDING?
Unobtrusively for the most part. Your wedding isn’t a photoshoot. Hopefully you should barely be aware of me being there. I step in though to direct family members, pose and direct you and style details.
08. HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Worldwide, baby! My pricing for weddings includes travel within about 50 miles. Very happy to further than that as long as travel expenses are covered.
09. WHO WOULD BE SHOOTING OUR WEDDING?
Currently it’s just me so you can ensure that the person you’ve spend a year building a relationship with is the same person who’s by your side on the wedding day.
10. HOW FAR OUT DO YOU BOOK?
I book about anything from 18 months out just a couple of weeks for City Hall. I recommend you reach out as soon as you’ve booked your venue.
11. HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE THE IMAGES?
About a month for an engagement session or City Hall, about 2 months for a wedding. I currently do all my own editing to ensure the highest standards.
12. WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
Have you browsed my blog? Followed me on Insta? Reach out on the form here. Tell me what you're excited about for your wedding!
01. WHAT KIND OF WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT?
I shoot a lot of City Hall weddings and regular weddings as well of any size and type, anywhere on earth but based in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s really more about us vibing as people than about the ‘type’ or ‘style’ of wedding.
02. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING?
The dancing. I love how everything just melts away and the whole vibe changes. People really come alive and I get to see a whole other side to them!
03. WHAT DO YOU SHOOT WITH?
Top of the line Canon equipment with all prime (fixed) lenses. A couple of awesome flashes that I use both on- and off-camera.
04. HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED IN SAN FRANCISCO?
I moved to SF in September 2018! Before that I lived in Oakland for 2 years. I’m originally from London.
05. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ARTISTIC STYLE?
Fresh and modern and zesty and full of joy. I take the most joy in capturing unscripted moments and people’s real, authentic selves. I edit in a way that’s true to life and timeless.
06. WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AMOUNT OF COVERAGE?
For full weddings, 8 hours. For small weddings / elopements with fewer than 50ish guests taking place Monday – Thursday, it’s 3 hours.
I live for real moments, laughter + tears, the quietness and epicness of love.
My work is bold and tender, modern and timeless, edgy and romantic.
My goal is to create personal images with an intimate feel that evoke a range of emotions., with a light editing touch. Think true-to-life, timeless images.
Curated style meets a photojournalistic eye, meaning both beautifully styled details and a photography ninja.
The values that underpin my business are storytelling with authenticity, working with integrity and expressing the joy of life.
My way of working stems from a deep love of people and the stories that bind us.
I’m most ardently categorized by my curiosity about the world, which was what brought me to California for the first time in 2014.
I’m fascinated by people, though (or maybe because) I’ve considered myself an outsider for most of my life. Blame that on being a 4w3, for any of you Enneagram enthusiasts out there. I’m a textbook case.
I started off as an artist, studying fine art for my degree in London. Painting was my life and my biggest passion for many years!
I’m a serial killer but luckily only of houseplants. And before you ask, yes, several of them were succulents! I know, how is this possible? I vow however never to give up on my dream of being a responsible plant parent.
My husband and I have an affectionate, playful and mischievous black cat named Friday. Follow him here!
I’m one of those annoying people that always feels cold. I drink black tea with milk because I’m British (where I’m from, it’s just called ‘tea’). I take unfeasibly hot showers. I wear sweatpants every chance I get.
My biggest journey has been towards self-acceptance and I now enjoy my current reality: looking outwards toward serving others.
I love and serve my clients every step of the way. My passion is crafting an experience where you feel valued, validated and closer as a couple.
If I can enrich the lives of the couples that trust me – really, really help them, beyond simply delivering the link to their online gallery – then I’ve fulfilled my calling.
I’m committed to showcasing all types of people, all types of weddings. I would be honored to work with even more LGBTQ+ (particularly trans and non-binary) couples, people of color, swirl couples and differently-abled folks.
I am based in the Mission District of San Francisco, California and am available worldwide.
Let's get together and toast your story!

I'm from London and lived in the UK for 32 years before I decided to cross the pond! (Pic - 2006)

Zoe radiates joy, oozes with talent and does everything with intention and professionalism. We came to her with a very loose vision, and being the pure talent that she is, Zoe brought our ideas to life and delivered 10 times over. Throughout we could actually see that Zoe was absorbing our energy and manifesting it into session that felt authentic to our values and personalities.
VICTORIA + MAX
I knew that Zoe was intuitive, talented, creative and fabulous to work with from the meetings we had beforehand and from looking at her work online, but when we received access to our album, we were completely blown away.
It as been a dream to go back through the memories and see all of the moments she captured.
LAUREN + SCOTT
Zoe's style is free-flowing, enchanting, and enlightening. She's a magical person and her photographs reflect her charm. Zoe offers more to your shoot than your typical photographer. She is clever, imaginative, progressive, unpretentious, and undoubtedly experienced. She is a dream wedding photographer come true.
