your love story is special, and it deserves to be documented in an honest and intentional way. my goal is to send you a gallery full of artful, fun, "true-to-you" images that you will plaster all over the house and admire forever.
(sshh. stop laughing. we have a wedding to plan).
i am a minnesota-based photographer specializing in couples, weddings and telling bad jokes (in hopes to make you laugh)!
when i'm not gassing you up during a session or crashing your wedding day, you can find me at home having a solo dance party, binge watching the latest netflix original, or belting taylor swift lyrics at the top of my lungs.
each couple i work with has a unique story, and with each unique story comes a great responsibility to capture it with intentionality and in truth. my galleries include a healthy balance of naturally posed portraits, sentimental moments, hilarious reception outtakes, and EVERYTHING in between.
no seriously. one time a groom wanted a pic of his *insert peach emoji here* to surprise the bride.
for legal reasons that was a joke.
“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!”
