Yes! I believe your engagement session is a very important part our relationship. The engagement session helps prepare you two to be in front of my camera on your wedding day, and to get you acquainted with how I work.
I do offer a second photographer with certain wedding collections.
I love delivering my client’s files quickly
and easily via a private online gallery. You will have the ability to download and print your digital images.
For an 8 hour wedding day, you can expect around 800-900 digital images in your online gallery. For sessions, you can expect around 30-50 images.
Yes! I love exploring new places!
No problem at all! We simply reschedule! I always keep a few days available in the month in case of inclement weather.

Vanessa is the absolute best! She doesn't just take pictures of your wedding day, she learns who you are as a couple and she captures your love story as it unfolds in real life. Vanessa was able to pick up on the details that mattered the most and frame it in the dreamiest of ways. Incredibly easy to work with, it was like we'd known her forever. We highly recommend Vanessa! Thank you Vanessa for giving us precious memory keepsakes that will last us our lifetime!
"Vanessa did our engagement pictures and they came our absolutely amazing! She was SO sweet and very professional. I loved that how she posed us and kept making us smile. You could really tell she loves what she does! We moved back to Texas and we are asking her to come do our wedding! I wouldn't want anyone else to photograph our special day. Vanessa is absolutely amazing!"

Let me tell you... You can look at a hundred different pictures from several different photogs and they all start to look the same. Except for Vanessa’s. Her pictures had an allure like none other. There was something different about them, but I couldn’t put a finger on it. So in setting up these “interviews” (which I strongly recommend), we wanted to interview Vanessa. When we spoke with her, our hearts literally melted. She was kind and compassionate, warm and expressive, precise and on point. But the one thing she brought to the table (and it was obvious), was her true passion and love for the art. Yes, art. That’s when we knew that Vanessa was the one who would capture the love that Laura and I have for each other and express it visually like none other.
Vanessa flew out for our engagement shoot and made us feel as comfortable as humanly possible. Her ability to make us relax while putting us in the public spotlight (there were a bunch of people all around us, staring) seemed effortless. When it was time for our BIG day, again, there was Vanessa being a superstar and making us relax and be comfortable on a day where those two things are seldom found. But she did it. A perfect day frozen in time, for all of our friends and family to enjoy!

Vanessa is such a sweetheart! She was super responsive with e-mails and she greeted me with a big smile and hug. She kept us laughing the entire time of our session and so helpful with her direction. Don't hesitate to contact her! You can tell she loves what she does and the finished product is well worth the (short) wait!
Vanessa is awesome!! She took care of everything so we didn’t have a worry in the world! She is very friendly, knowledgeable, and makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera! Our engagement and wedding photos were something out of a dream! Highly recommend 10/10!

Therefore, it is without hesitation that we recommend her. Her upbeat attitude, ease to get of a hold of, and phenomenal camera skills makes her must to capture all of life's special journeys."

"My husband and I were extremely fortunate to have Vanessa as our wedding photographer! She was very reasonably priced, a joy to work with, and, most importantly, took amazing pictures for us! She captured our wedding perfectly, and we continue to receive compliments from our family and friends on how great our pictures are."

"Our engagement shoot couldn't have been more wonderful with Vanessa!! It was so much fun! And our pictures came out beautiful! Would definitely recommend Vanessa to anyone looking for a fun, professional absolutely wonderful photographer :)"
Kristina + Stephen
"We've hired Vanessa too many times that she is already our official family photographer! The first time we met, we were already impressed with her humbleness and passion in photography. For me, a good photographer makes you feel comfortable and less awkward during poses. And I believe Vanessa is one. I love her lighting and her style in photography. She is more than just a photographer for us, she is a good friend as well. You'll never be disappointed with this one!" - Karen
"Vanessa is absolutely amazing!! She Genuinely loves what she does and with the utmost quality and professionalism!! We truly have found a photographer for all of our life's memories! :)" - Matthew

I cannot express enough how AMAZING Vanessa is. We were so excited to have Vanessa as our wedding day photographer but after getting a few of our sample photos back we are ECSTATIC that she captured our wedding. When we got our first wedding photo back our jaws literally dropped they were so breath taking. The amount of compliments we have received on just the few photos we have received so far is overwhelming. She was so delightful to work with during our wedding day and has a great eye at capturing photo-worthy moments. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Vanessa as your photographer, it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.
