Vanessa Rules

Vanessa was a delight to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Throughout the day, she worked diligently and professionally among the busyness to capture the essence of our wedding. When we received our photos, I couldn't have been happier or more impressed. Through the photos, we have been able to relive that amazing day again and again. Her eye for telling a story with a picture makes her a cut above the rest. Thank you, Vanessa!

Gorgeous Photos From an Expert Photographer

It was a joy to work with Vanessa and we are in love with our wedding photos. She was exceedingly professional, kind, and just an easy person to talk to. We had a tight window and Vanessa made it all work to get the best shots. HIGHLY recommend her! Her high quality and expertise won't be beat.

BEST wedding photographer!

To say that I am obsessed with our wedding photos is an understatement. Vanessa and her second shooter did such an amazing job at our wedding! They got every shot I wanted and more. I still have family and friends commenting on how amazing our wedding photos are and I am so so happy we went with Vanessa. Prior to the wedding Vanessa was super responsive and helpful. She helped with the wedding timeline and always had helpful suggestions. She was super flexible and let me add on an extra hour about a week before the wedding. Day of she had such a calming presence and seriously was the best to work with. If her style is your vibe do not hesitate to book her, you won't regret it!
