SCROLL TO EXPLORE

When I was little, my mom and I would look at magazines like VOGUE, Western Horseman and Cowboys and Indians. The pictures sparked a love of photography in me. 

I grew up in rural Alberta, around rodeo and with a family centered around horses. Capturing them and the boho/western lifestyle I so enjoyed living, turned photography into a passion.

Hey, I'm zoe!

WITH A LOVE FOR ALL THINGS BOHO + WESTERN

Rural Alberta Photographer

PORTRAITS   •   couples   •   families  •   styled shoots  •   newborns   •   weddings

While I’m an expert at wrangling the extended family into an organized wedding photo, most of your session will include belly laughs and you and your significant other just being yourselves. The best photos are captured when you are relaxed and barely notice I’m third wheeling.

My desire is to make our time together less like a photo shoot and more like hanging out with your new friend in a beautiful location. My goal is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera while capturing your unique love story through the images I take. You won’t just get gorgeous pictures, but each photo will remind you of a special moment, memory or day.

I’m not into those stiff, overly posed photoshoots. 

And your wedding photos are something you should cherish forever. With this in mind, I work hard to make sure every magical moment, memory and emotion is captured perfectly for you to look back on for years to come.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life,

Zoe has not only become my favourite photographer, we have also become good friends! Every time I get together with Zoe I am blown away with how talented and creative and kind she is! I have never felt so comfortable in front of the camera, she has a way of making you feel like a rockstar. To say that I have fun at every shoot would be an understatement. I look forward to the next time I get to work with her! I trust her to find my best angles and she isn’t afraid to direct you to make sure all your best assets are being showcased, she definitely has an eye for perfection! If you have ever been hesitant to get a photo shoot done, look no further, she will knock down that wall! 5 stars!
