I'm not talking about the kind of shoes you're wearing or the color of your flowers. I'm talking about the eye crinkles from laughing so hard, the single tear rolling down your cheek, windswept hair, and a love so pure you can feel it through photos.
Let me put this simply.... she’s my photographer for life! Not only did she manage to make every shoot a comfortable experience for both myself and fiancée, she also made sure to pay attention to little details such as hair placement, fixing clothing etc. She comes prepared with creative and thoughtful poses but also encourages doing what feels most natural to you.
Awkward is my middle name. As a true introvert myself, I always completely understand why couples are nervous about being in front of the camera. However, I'm here to tell you that the whole time we're shooting, it's so much easier than you'd imagine. Think about it. When you're feeling shy or awkward, you cling to your person and you laugh. In other words, natural movements that feel like home, exactly what I want to create in your photos.
I can’t say enough about how fantastic Vanessa is! My boyfriend and I did a photoshoot with her and the pictures came out beautiful! She is incredibly talented - not to mention that she is so fun to shoot with and is so easy to vibe with. Highly recommend her, she’ll forever be my go-to photographer!
She’s professional, kind, and just wants to have fun with you while capturing you and your partner’s love. The easiest and most comfortable photography experience I’ve experienced! She also takes her time carefully editing the photos beautifully while also managing to get the final product to you in a timely manner!
Both entirely focused on your relationship and your "why" throughout this process. The more you value each other the more you will this experience
Willing to explore and learn new places, excited to travel and make new memories, pumped for rad photos and new company
Adventurous, love the outdoors and national parks, dogs, campfires, the stillness of the morning before everyone wakes up
Yes! Once your agreement is signed through Honeybook, I take a 50% non-refundable deposit and you choose which payment plan you want. The most common plans are monthly and quarterly, but you can customize that with me!
During my busy season, expect to wait 8-12 weeks for elopements and 2-4 weeks for couples sessions. Depending on your coverage, expect anywhere from 450-800 for elopements and weddings and 75-150 for a couples session.
Nope! Part of the magic that comes with receiving your photos from me is seeing them as a finished product. Think of getting RAWS as the ingredients to your meal instead of the finished plate at a restaurant. Nobody wants that!
I always encourage my couples to embrace the weather, provided that it's not dangerous to our wellbeing. Rain, snow, and cloudy weather all make for some great photos and elements you can get creative with. I do allow my couples to reschedule once for free, however, there's still a chance for "bad" weather then too!
What's the average cost of investment?
Elopements start at $2750 and intimate weddings start at $3750. This is all dependent on the session location (travel fees not included) and which collection you vibe with the most. We go over all the details after you inquire!
Can I gift someone a session from you? Do you give discounts?
Sure can! Send an inquiry my way and I'll send you more information on how to book for a buddy! And yes! Proud to offer a discount to our veterans, active duty members of the military, first responders, and nurses.
Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to. Morning coffee, a few minutes late to work, a brisk walk down the street window shopping for the upcoming fall season. Wool sweaters, bare trees, cold nights.
So cold we can see our breath as we hike the open fields in the fog. Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure.
Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour another cup. Black denim and leather boots, the deepest crimson flannel. Rose gold and velvet. Rich and lush. Red wine and dark twilight nights.
Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls.
Once you receive your online gallery, you can print out beautiful photos and create an album, with my help of course!
After all the planning, late nights, and Pinterest planning, we finally shoot your day and celebrate your love!
