The experience of working together

Step by step, here's what to expect

After you've booked your wedding venue and have your date pinned down, reach out and I'll see if I'm free! You can also opt to have an associate photographer shoot your wedding.

You'll receive a pricing & info guide if we're able to service your wedding.

Get in touch

I'll send you resources to look over, including a detailed video introducing the process of working together. Afterward, I'll send your customized Photography Planning Document.

You can book a complimentary 15-minute alignment call, if there are any questions you have, but hopefully my resources will make it obvious whether I'm the photographer for you or not. 

Let's connect

The next step is signing your contract, which needs to be signed by both of you. Shortly after, I'll send your invoice link to pay, also easily done online. 

Usually it's 50% down to book and 50% due within 2 weeks of the wedding, or we can do a 4-part payment plan for larger packages or if it suits better, as long as full payment is made at least 2 weeks before the big day.


Make it official

We continue to collaborate! I won't bother you too much or put you through an annoying email sequence, but please know I'll be here to help with any aspect of planning your photography and your day.

I'm also happy to offer timeline guidance personally and connect you with other vendors. 

We'll make sure your planning document is complete as we approach your wedding day.

Planning + help

Execution & delivery

On the wedding day, you'll have a blast! I'll be there, snapping away and running around to get all the angles. 

You'll get your sneak peek if you ordered one, within 1 week of the wedding date. 

The final gallery is delivered usually 6 weeks after your wedding date. You'll have a gallery delivery week in your contract so you know exactly when you expect it at the latest.

Frequently asked questions

07. WHO WOULD BE SHOOTING OUR WEDDING?
If you book me, Zoe as your photographer then I'll be there barring some unforeseen emergency. If you book an associate, you'll get to meet them usually about a month before the wedding via video call. 

08. HOW FAR OUT DO YOU BOOK?
I only take bookings a maximum of 18 months out, down to a minimum of three weeks out for simpler weddings. I recommend you reach out as soon as you’ve booked your venue.

09. HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE THE IMAGES?
I currently offer a 6 week turnaround time. When you book with me, you'll have a designated gallery delivery week given in your contract, which is when you can expect to receive your finished wedding photos, at the very latest. 

10. WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
Have you browsed my blog? Followed me on Insta? Reach out on the form here. Tell me about YOU!

01. WHAT KIND OF WEDDINGS DO YOU SHOOT?
The team and I are experienced at all kinds of weddings! We shoot a lot of City Hall weddings and regular weddings as well of any size and type, but have a heart for intimate weddings. 

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. I've recently added film photography to my arsenal, but it's just for fun and I'm only a beginner.

05. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ARTISTIC STYLE?
Fresh, modern, candid and joy-filled. I take the most joy in capturing unscripted moments and people’s real, authentic selves. The house editing style is true-to-life. Our style is timeless, not trendy.

06. HOW DO YOU WORK AT A WEDDING?
Unobtrusively for the most part. Your wedding isn’t a photoshoot. I step in though to direct family members, and to pose and direct you. Candid wedding photography means just being in the moment and forgetting there's a photographer there.

Testimonials

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.

"Zoe makes everything
NATURAL & DEEPLY HUMAN"

Victoria and 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.

"Intuitive, talented
CREATIVE & FABULOUS"

Lauren and 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.

"She captures
THE DREAMY AURA OF LOVE"

Rosa and Josh

I LOVE real moments, laughter + tears, the quietness and epicness of love. 

My goal is to create personal images with an intimate feel that evoke a range of emotions - timeless, true-to-life images.

The business is underpinned by values like 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 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.

My own journey has taken me through art school in London in the mid-noughties, working in Investment Banking for 7 years, traveling around Europe and the US during 2013 - 2016, and managing content marketing at a tech startup. 

I moved to the US from the UK (where I grew up). I started my business right away. I've been all-in since day one, with a very clear path for what I want to build, and an entrepreneurial mindset.

I'm passionately curious about the world, which was what first brought me to California in 2014. I'm enraptured by the demands of running a successful business, and now building a team of associate photographers. 

Let's get together and toast your story!
