Hello, I’m Zöe !
If you are thinking about booking me as your photographer, then you probably want to know me a bit better!
I haven’t always been a wedding photographer. I started out from college, supporting people with autism. I dedicated myself to watching, listening, supporting people, always trying to see things from anothers point of view. This desire to please, I think came from living with my autistic brother, needing to be aware of his needs, often before my own.
Back in 2009 (to 2012), I had the chance to volunteer as one of the official photographers at the Big Tent Festival in Falkland, Fife. My goodness, it was such a fun experience, I don’t know if any of you managed to go? It was such a fab, laid back festival with music, crafts and eco talks. It really helped me gain experience and confidence ! You can see a blog post about it all HERE. Following that, a couple of friends who were getting married in 2010, asked me to take photos of their big day.. Two weddings, became four .. and at the end of 2010 I embraced what was happening, and launched ‘Photos by Zöe’.
I’m dyslexic, and I soon realised that photography also gave me a new way to express myself, in a way that didn’t limit me like writing does. It feels liberating, fun, exciting. These experiences lead me to fall in love with photography. Its not necessarily the route I’d recommend for anyone starting out. But, thats my story, and thats how I started! As cheesy as it may sound, I fell in love with photography.
Basically thats where I am at today. Loving what I do, seeing it as an utterly enormous privilege, having the chance share a little bit of your life with you.
I hope that answers a few questons, and you feel that you know me a little better for it! Why don’t we have a wee chat on the phone or FaceTime? That way we can get to know each other, my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
