Vanessa is an absolute JOY to work with. 10/10 book her for your wedding day!

Vanessa truly made our wedding day an extraordinary experience. Her ability to encapsulate the essence of each moment through her captivating storytelling was truly remarkable. She expertly guided and assisted all members of the wedding party, ensuring they felt at ease and confident in front of the camera. Prior to the big day, she diligently inquired about our goals, budget, and family dynamics, showcasing her commitment to understanding our vision. Moreover, her swift provision of proofs, just 12 hours post-wedding, exemplified her dedication and professionalism. Working with Vanessa was an absolute pleasure, and I wholeheartedly recommend her services.

Exceeded my expectations working with Vanessa

Vanessa's professionalism exceeded my expectations. I hired her almost two years before my wedding date, and she was so accommodating to my questions and helped relieve my wedding planning anxiety. She also sent me two gifts leading up to my wedding, which was completely unnecessary and beyond thoughtful. I highly recommend hiring her for your special day!
