to Remember

Inspired + intentional storytelling

an experience 

Cue the music, pop a bottle, go exploring, dance in the desert, get comfortable, do your thang. We’ll provide prompts to help you get comfortable (no need to worry about what to do with your hands), but mostly we’ll just hang out and let the magic happen.

It’s not just about the day you show up for photos. We’ll start working together from day one to provide insights, resources, location ideas, planning tips, and timelines so that when you get to your wedding or session date, you’ll get to live fully in the moment.

get Inspired.

After you reach out, we’ll chat so I can get to know you and your story. From there I'll craft the experience around your vision. If we’re a good fit, we’ll save the date with a contract and get this party started. I'm not saying we are going to be best friends but don't be surprised if it happens.

Where do I even begin? Vanessa is absolutely amazing. My now Husband and I found Vanessa on Instagram when searching for a wedding photographer. I instantly felt comforted and excited once talking with Vanessa on the phone. She is patient, kind, and truly cares about her clients. We set up the engagement shoot and I was kind of nervous. I’ve never felt comfortable in front of a camera and told my fiancé that I was anxious if it would look good. Vanessa made it fun and included our whole family, including our dog!! She got the pictures back to us in a week, and they are amazing pictures we will cherish forever. Leading up to the wedding, Vanessa worked with my coordinator to figure out times and spent more time with me figuring out exactly what I envisioned for the wedding day. The wedding day went flawlessly. Vanessa is truly talented, and has a golden spirit that makes everyone feel important and valued. I love the pictures and want for all to know how talented she is. Book her if you haven’t already, you won’t regret it!!

Vanessa did our engagement and wedding photos and I can't say enough great things about our experience working with her! She was extremely flexible with us and her packaging as we changed things around because of the pandemic. The day of my wedding my entire bridal party loved how gentle, fun and positive she was and the photos she delivered were amazing. She took note on the special moments that were important to me and brought those to life. We love Vanessa and I would encourage anyone to invest her packages - best money spent!

Vanessa was the absolute best. From the moment she arrived till the moment we received our wedding photos, she made me feel absolutely safe and I never doubted her abilities. Vanessa is a talented, creative photographer who embodies love in all her photos. I couldn't have asked for a more caring and lovable person to be a part of such a special day. I would 100% recommend Vanessa to anyone in the future!

Turn around time varies depending on the season! Typically, most wedding albums are delivered 8-10 weeks from the wedding date. Engagement sessions are delivered 2 weeks from the session date.
