Vanessa was an absolute dream to work with! She was so flexible and was able to calm the nerves of an anxious bride by being accommodating and with her professionalism. She responded to every email with my many questions within 24hours, if not sooner. She did not miss a beat, nor any detail of our wedding and her photos were absolutely stunning and clear! I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a photographer. Her pricing was very fair and by the quality of her photos you can see that she really takes pride in her work. She worked with me to give me a wedding package that was in my budget and stayed late to make sure that we got photos of our sparkler exit. Please use this photographer, she is fantastic!

Hire Vanessa - you will not regret it!!
Vanessa was AMAZING! From the first time talking on the phone, I could tell that she was incredibly professional, detail-oriented, responsive, talented, and easy-going. She makes you feel like you're the only wedding she has all season and always responded to quickly to any questions that came up. During the actual wedding day, she was so organized and on top of every little detail we had asked for beforehand yet brought this calm energy at the same time, which was so important to us during the chaotic day! The end results were AMAZING and we honestly didn't think it was possible for the pictures to turn out so well. She captured such beautiful, funny, and emotional candid shots that helped us relive our special day. Thank you for everything Vanessa, 100% recommend to any future bride/groom!

She became part of the family!
Vanessa was amazing! She was so easy to work with and basically became part of the family! She took control and got the portraits done quickly so we could all join the party. The candid shots she got during the reception truly captured the atmosphere! The photographs are gorgeous; the only problem I'm having is choosing which ones to print because they're all so good!!!
