I know this is such a joyous time in your life, and these next few months are going to fly by!  

Since photographing my first wedding in 2011, I've learned that there is so much more that goes into it than just snapping my camera button.

My approach going into your wedding day is not only documenting your day as the story unfolds, but also being your support system, building friendships and relationships with my brides and grooms, and always greeting you with a big hug (I'm a big hugger!)




I provide the perfect balance of a photo journalistic approach, spontaneous candids, and easy going romantic portraits.

The anticipation before walking down the aisle.Expressing your love in front of your favorite people. Your first dance as a married couple. The stolen kisses between you two as your guest enjoy dancing the night away. 

Being able to document one of the biggest days of your life is such an honor!

 




I'd love to grab a cocktail, or cup of coffee while we chat about your love story and get to know each other!

Congratulations! You're engaged!

"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."

"When we spoke with her, our hearts literally melted. She was kind and compassionate, warm and expressive, precise and on point. 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 extremely responsive and was very flexible with us on scheduling our engagement photo shoot. She just delivered our engagement photos and they are absolutely beautiful (and natural/not too posed). Vanessa made us feel comfortable throughout the photo shoot and I can't wait to see what her artistic eye captures on our wedding day"

"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!"
