When you book with me, you don't have to worry about a single thing
but loving on each other. I'll guide you through poses + prompts when necessary, and recognize when to step back and capture your love organically in-the-moment. I'm here to capture your heirloom portraits, joyful expressions, & real memories.
Let me be your resource—for your timeline questions, the what-do-I-wears, vendor recommendations and everything in between. Your wedding day or portrait session should be as carefree and love-centered as possible, and I am glad to help in any way I can.
You are so much more than a client. Your memories are sacred. Your love story is priceless. And your trust is an honor.
When planning our wedding, we were looking for a photographer that not only had an incredible talent & style, but also someone who we connected with. When we had our first meeting with Vanessa, we felt right away that it was a perfect fit! Our wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous; I have had so many people comment on just how nice they came out. Vanessa was super accommodating, great at communicating and getting to know my husband & I to really understand what we wanted! She’s fantastic and I recommend her to anyone and everyone.

The second I got engaged I knew exactly who I wanted to hire for our wedding photographer. Vanessa creates magic! Her team worked so hard to capture every special moment of our wedding day. She is so responsive, easy to work with and FUN. I will never be able to explain just how special her work is. We are so lucky to be able to have such beautiful images to cherish for the rest of our lives.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
For outfits, I'm a big fan of earthy and warm tones, such as beige, burgundy, denim, olive green, dusty rose & rust orange! Rather than wearing the same colors, I recommend couples wear colors that compliment one another. I love patterns and solids alike, but recommend that if one person is wearing a pattern, the other wears solids. Mixing different textures also can make the photos more dynamic too! Examples would be linen, denim, knitwear, etc.
The sooner the better! Weekends tend to fill up pretty quickly - especially during the spring and fall. So, the earlier you reach out, the more likely it'll be that I'm available on your desired date! This little lady truly wishes that she could be everywhere all at once, but alas. A signed contract and 50% retainer fee hold your date. I hope we get to work together!
Absolutely! Ninety percent of my couples walk into their sessions expressing this feeling—It's so normal. One of my biggest joys is seeing them transform throughout our time together and walk away saying, "You made that so easy and fun!" And it's an even huger joy hearing from them once they receive their gallery, exclaiming that "I can't believe that's us!" I'll guide you through a combination of poses and action prompts, to capture a special mixture of heirloom portraits and genuine expressions of joy. I want you to see yourself the way your partner sees you.
Yes! All portrait & engagement clients will receive access to my location guide, which details my absolute favorite places for photo sessions in the surrounding area. It's also always encouraged to ask about a location uniquely special to you & your relationship! Just keep in mind that some locations may require the purchase of a permit to take professional photography on their grounds.
YES—ask away! I have had the privilege of working with so many fantastic wedding pros in the area, both personally and professionally, and I would be thrilled to share my recommendations. It's so important that your wedding vendors are not only talented, but also wonderful team players who prioritize your best interests on your wedding day. I've met some true gems, and I'd love to sing their praises.
