and i wanna be your wedding planning bestie... your hype gal... and the one you call when you just. can't. *decide* on something.

i strive to make your experience with me as fun and stress-free as possible! my goal is to build a real, genuine relationship with every couple i work with, and i am passionate about telling your love story in a way that reflects you and no one else.

hey you! i'm vanessa, but everyone calls me v.

I was always the friend who had her phone out saying "WAIT! DON'T EAT THAT YET-- I NEED A PIC FIRST!" I have had a love for documenting little moments in time to look back on since I was young-- but it wasn't until I was an adult that I quit my job and bought my first professional camera on a total whim! I found my passion in documenting love stories very early on in my career-- and I LIVE for it.
My favorite part about being a wedding photographer are all of the relationships I get to make with others, and documenting all of the seemingly small moments that add up to something monumental. Wedding photography is a keepsake that you will inevitably show future generations-- and I treat the biggest, most special day of your life accordingly.


Trevor is the owner of Videography Minnesota-- yep, you guessed it... a Minnesota-based Videography Company. ;)
He has had a passion for video since high school and wedding videography just felt like the next step down his creative journey. Trevor grew up with his eyes glued to the screen; If it wasn’t movies, it was video games or television shows, constantly picking apart the way scenes were created, what would happen next, and how it would be executed.

He believes that there is no better feeling than seeing a person react to your video the way that you intended.

I always wanted to go to architecture + design school when I was younger! But I can't even build a gingerbread house.

I'm an Enneagram Type 4-- and I'm super nerdy about personality types! I will likely ask you about yours, so make sure you know it! ;)

I'm originally from California and grew up on the West Coast before my family moved to the Midwest in 2010!

I'm afraid of lakes. So living in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, is a bit contradictory for me lol.

“Vanessa is the best! From our first interaction over email she made it feel like we've already met 100 times which took all the nerves away for our first photo session. Her prompts at our engagement session were so much fun and the photos turned out AMAZING!”
