About us

My name is Zoe Lam, the founder and main photographer of Zoe Zen Photography since 2007 and became Zoe Zen Photography, LLC in 2012. Due to my company name, many people confuse that my last name is “Zen”. The reason I initially chose “Zen” instead of my last name was due to the feeling and emotions photography brought me. Zen is defined many ways but the overall meaning is the concept of reaching complete focus and peace. This is what photography gifted me. Photography brought me so much joy and fun, it was my little area of peace. It caught my attention so much that I was able to become very focused and start the company I have today. I want to spread that same joy and fun experience to my clients. Photography is more than just about the photos, it’s about the experience, memories, fun, and happiness that went into creating them. These are the feelings I want everyone to feel when they are able to see their photos. I am proud and honored to state that I have photographed over 350 couples and families over the past 8 years. I truly appreciate all those who have supported me along my way and look forward to building many new relationships with all the wonderful people I meet in the future.

Zoe Lam

Primary Photographer

I am originally from Hong Kong so I love anything from there, especially my milk tea! I am a HUGE music lover so it’s not uncommon to see me with the music turned up and dancing around. And what better combination of music and dancing is there than Zumba! I hope to continue my work and capture moments for people all across the globe.

Katie

Katie

Mini Artist & Creator

Katie is 10 years old and a fifth grader. She is a lovely, delightful, compassionate and cheerful girl. Sometimes she laughs out too loud in public that I have to tone her down a bit 😉 Art, crafts, swimming, reading books and watching TV shows are her favorite activities. She loves to experiment. Often times, she will create something out of elements that she finds around the house which always inspires me.

Nikki

Nikki

The Acrobatic Horse Lover

She loves to flip and tumble, play with her stuffed animals, play baseball, read books, and watch TV shows. Her favorite animals are horses and she could tell you almost everything about them.
