I studied photography at the University of Wales in Cardiff and graduated in 2011. During my time at university i began photographing weddings in Worcestershire and Warwickshire where i grew up, and i have now been a professional photographer for over 5 years. Choosing to start up my own business doing what i love was one of the best decisions i have made and i have loved every minute of it. Over the years my business has grown and in 2013 i set up a studio in the lovely village of Mappleborough Green in Warwickshire. Throughout that year i had the privilege of photographing not only weddings but all kinds of photo shoots including families, kids, bumps, babies and many more. I met lots of different people, some of which i still see form time to time!
At the beginning of 2014 i relocated to Hampshire and married my husband. So i know exactly what it is like for a bride in the run up to the wedding and on the big day! Whilst living in Hampshire i have shared my time between my own photography work in Worcestershire and working with the Photography New Forest Studio in the beautiful village of Beaulieu in the heart of the New Forest. I feel very lucky to live and work in such a beautiful part of the country.
I now run Zoe Louise Photography from the fabulous studio in Beaulieu, as well as having a small studio in Bromsgrove Worcestershire, offering a variety of portraiture including family, bumps and babies, pets and makeovers. The Beaulieu studio is located in the heart of the New Forest and offers some beautiful surroundings for location portraiture, which i love to take advantage of! The Bromsgrove studio shares a premises with a fabulous salon called Studio 142, which makes it the perfect location for makeover photo shoots.
