“It has been my great good fortune to have crossed paths with Zoë Lonergan. This extremely talented and highly organize individual offers me the unique combination of graphic designer, book designer and fashion photographer all in one. She delivers high quality results across the board. Zoë has quickly become an indispensable ingredient in my effort to self-publish a book of my knitwear designs. I greatly appreciate the integrity, grace and good humor she brings to everything she does.”

“Zoë handled all of our graphic design, print, and photography needs for our wedding this summer and we couldn’t have been more thrilled with everything she created for us. She designed our invitation, masterfully taking in info about my aesthetic, the vibe of our eco-friendly event, and even the types of flowers and plants we planned to have at the wedding. She coordinated all of our printing needs with an eco-friendly green printer, and joined our rehearsal dinner and wedding celebrations as the perfect non-obtrusive but totally effective photographer.
Zoë is professional, experienced, dependable, and all around fun. As our designer, she kept me on schedule with invitations, envelopes, place cards, etc., and as our photographer, she could both mingle with the party and wrangle the entire wedding into a group shot with ease. Her photos came out equally beautifully from the indoor urban setting of our rehearsal dinner and from our outdoor ceremony in the Headlands.
All of the work she did for us was lovely and created the look and feel we were after. Most importantly she listened to us on everything from the style of design we like, to the importance of using sustainable materials, to capturing the fun of our celebration without feeling too formal (but also without missing out on the important moments we are so glad we have photos of now). I highly recommend Zoë for any celebration’s graphic design, print production, and photography needs.”

“It’s amazing how you were able to capture our day full of smiles without having us to stand and pose… You understood how we wanted to document our special day and you delivered. It was classic, creative, and beautiful.”
Shirley & John
“Zoë Lonergan was the perfect photographer for our special day. She was extremely organized and professional prior to the event and reliable and lovely the day of the event. I had guests comment on how great our photographer was, and my husband and I could not have been more pleased with how she was able to capture our wedding day in its full capacity without being intrusive. I would definitely recommend Zoë for any event!”

“Marcus and I were very fortunate to work with Zoë Lonergan for our engagement and wedding photos. Although it’s clear her talents go way beyond the pictures she takes, Zoë couldn’t have captured the essence of our day any better than in the photography she did leading up to and on our special day. Her keen eye allowed her to capture the energy and emotions we were experiencing, while still incorporating the natural beauty surrounding us. Zoë captured so many special moments, without distraction, posing or being intrusive to any of our guests. The photography alone is a beautiful work of art, and we thank her that we have such stunning pictures that bring to life the special memories we hold in our hearts from our wedding. If we’re fortunate enough, we’ll have an opportunity to work with her again.”

I can’t say enough good things about Zoë - she is truly an artist! We chose from dozens of wedding photographers and finally chose her based on her photographic style and professionalism. As an artist and designer myself, I truly appreciate her innate sense of light, scale, proportion and beauty in her photography.
She blended into the wedding crowd – we hardly knew she was there! We came away with some great family portraits / formal photos, and also a lot of great candid shots (which are hard to capture!).
Working with Zoë was a pleasure – she met with us twice before the big day, to find out what we were looking for, and to scope out the venue. She was hands-down the easiest part of planning a wedding! All we had to do was tell her to do was show up and do her thing.
We came away with some beautiful, thoughtful, artistic photographs – we’ve gotten so many complements from friends and family! This is no run-of-the-mill wedding photographer – worth every penny. I highly recommend Zoë!!”

“I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer, and have commissioned Zoë in the past to design albums for my clients. I consider myself an expert at photoshop, and have avoided letting others touch my images, but Zoë I trust to stay true to my standards and to bring out the best in my images. A professional photographer in her own right, she is on the short list of people I would want to shoot my own upcoming wedding (and that is the highest compliment I can give).”

“I can’t truly capture how lucky I felt to have found Zoe to be apart of our wedding. It can sometimes feel a little overwhelming trying to pick the right person for an important job and you make a decision and hope for the best.
In first meeting with her, she was very professional and had a phenomenal portfolio to look at. It felt right to go with her and I wasn’t disappointed.
Our engagement photos were lovely. She was very flexible for times to meet and allowed us to have several different locations for the photos. It was a fun experience and we got some excellent shots.
For our wedding, she was on time and very professional. She went along with the plans of the day well and was able to capture the feel of our ceremony and our reception. Our wedding photos are truly phenomenal and I treasure them. She has a keen eye and a quick response that allows her to capture those key emotional moments and also provided us with some more artistic/abstract shots that make the whole package exactly what we were looking for.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any of my friends for their weddings or other major events.”

“We were fortunate to have Zoe photograph our daughter’s wedding last weekend in Santa Rosa. Although we will not see the final product for a few weeks, I wanted to write something now.
Zoe was a such pleasure to work with. She and her sister, who assisted her, were so unobtrusive. We wouldn’t have even known they were there the majority of the time and when she was directing us for family photos, etc. she had a way of taking charge that put us at ease and we could tell that she knew exactly what she was doing. She had a calming presence that was really appreciated.
Her engagement photos were beautiful and that, combined with her work with us last Saturday, gives me the confidence to recommend her wholeheartedly!”
“Zoe was the photographer for our wedding.
Why we decided to go with Zoe and not other photographer?
There are two reasons:
We loved the photos on her portfolio site (very natural looking photos).
Zoe is the sweetest person to do business with and really easy going. She is not pushy or aggressive. Some wedding photographers are really pushy in my opinion. “Kiss the bride”, “Is that all what you have?”, “Do that”, “Do this”. No, Zoe is not one of those photographers. She told us to be ourselves wile she will be taking pictures of us – pictures turned out amazing. She truly captured THE MOMENT.
Message to all the brides and grooms who can’t decide on which photographer to choose:
if you truly love Zoe’s work, meet with her and you will see how nice and sweet she is. You will know that this is it, she is your photographer for the big day.”
