Amazing Person & Photographer -

We are so thrilled we hired Vanessa! We choose the Sapphire Collection package to cover our engagement and wedding. Her photos are beautiful and we could tell from the moment we met her in her studio that she really cares about what she does.

Professionally and personally, we felt like she is so invested in creating beautiful photos, and moments. We just got our engagement album from her and it was everything we could have asked for and more. It's a beautiful hardcover book, the arrangement is stunning. Even our USB with our digital photos was in a beautiful little wooden case. Her attention to detail is amazing. Every time I look through it, it's like she's telling our story through our photos. I cannot think of higher praise, but she really is magic at what she does.

On top of what a wonderful experience we had her pricing is extremely reasonable, and she includes so much. I had never thought we would be able to afford a wedding photographer and stumbling upon Vanessa was a true gift. Plus she was fun to work with, the turnaround was lightening and everything has been so perfect.

Thank you so much, Vanessa! We cannot wait to work with you again at our wedding in August!!

Couldn't be happier!

Vanessa was great to work with! Leading up to the wedding she was professional and always responded to emails within 24-72 hours. The day of the wedding she was awesome! We had a church ceremony and I was nervous that having a photographer running around taking photos would be distracting but Vanessa was far from distracting. I even had guests tell me they were surprised there was a photographer because they hadn't noticed her during the ceremony. The the ceremony photos, our couples photos, and reception photos were beautiful. She captured many moments that I didn't even know occurred but am happy she saw them. Vanessa's years of experience really showed in her work and the way she conducts her business. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding!

Best photographer EVER!!!

Picking Vanessa for our wedding experience was the best decision we made. From our engagement, our wedding, and trash the dress session, she’s has been perfect. I was very shy at first but she was so helpful with me gaining my confidence and she hit every mark with our wedding pictures! She’s our favorite photographer for any future events! We love Vanessa!
