    Such a Joy to work with!

    From start to finish, Vanessa was just a joy to work with! She made us feel comfortable from our initial call, to our engagement session, to our wedding day. We were blown away with not only her talent (and she's incredibly talented!) and professionalism, but by how thoughtful she was - we received a beautiful cheeseboard with our name engraved when we booked our wedding with her, and then received a camera right before our wedding with the sweetest note.
    Our wedding day felt so easy and relaxed, we owe a big part of that to Vanessa and her team. She knew our venue and the best places to take photos and where the light was best. Our bridal party and parents couldn't get over how perfectly she was able to direct everyone and get the shot. Looking at the photos now, we are so happy with how perfectly she captured us and how we felt.
    We would HIGHLY recommend Vanessa and her team to everyone! Thank you Vanessa for helping to make our day so special!

    The Best Photographer

    Vanessa is truly amazing. She is professional, organized, hard-working, and easy to work with. She makes you feel relaxed when she takes your picture and will suggest poses so you do not have to worry about looking bad. Not only did our photos turn out stunning, but at our wedding reception she gave us an iPad so we could see photos of us getting ready, our first look, the wedding party, and our ceremony. The quality was amazing and as we viewed the photos, our entire wedding party and some additional guests gathered around us so they could see the photos as well. Everyone was amazed at how incredible the photos looked. Ever commenting they looked straight out of a magazine! Her style is timeless and elegant, and I know we will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. I would recommend couples hire her for engagement pictures as well since she is an expert at capturing these special moments.

    So quick and professional!

    It was super cool to be able to see some photo selects as well as a quick edit of the video during the reception! They did beautiful work and were lovely to be around.
