I am a Minnesota-based photographer specializing in couples, weddings, and telling bad jokes (in hopes to make you laugh)!
When I'm not hyping my new friends up during a photo session, you can find me eating Chipotle for the third day in a row, binge watching the latest Netflix original, or searching for the best Bloody Mary ever made.
Your love story is special, and it deserves to be documented in an honest and "true to you" way. Each couple I work with has a unique story, and I am so excited to learn more about yours!
Natural, timeless photos that don't feel awkward as heck.
Guided timeline planning + vendor recommendations.
A fun, stress-fee experience that'll knock your socks off!
My goal as your photographer is to capture the real you. Beauty and authenticity lies in the in-between moments that have no posing or direction. By blending a candid and traditional approach to photography, I make sure that you + your partner are feeling comfortable, confident, and closer than ever-- without neglecting grandma's mantle.
Not only do I send you a gallery full of emotion-filled, "true-to-you" images that you will admire for a life time, I also provide a guided, stress-free experience as you navigate this exciting new chapter in your life!
“Vanessa was exactly what we wanted in a photographer. She captured a lot of the "raw", natural photos that we wanted. We didn't want a lot of the standard photos and she made our dreams become a reality. She is super personable and makes you feel like you've been friends forever. She's just an all around fun person to be around and I guarantee you won't regret the decision of booking with her!”
