I am new to WeddingWire, but not to wedding photography. Since 2005 I have worked hard to provide the best in professionalism and exceptional quality to my clients. I am very detailed, vibrate and love meeting new people. I have photographed over 200 weddings! I am proud to be a recipient of many local and national awards, but best of all – tons of compliments from my happy clients.

Wedding photography is my favorite, as my education stems from photojournalism. I treat every wedding like it was my own; I am celebrating my 5 year anniversary and remember what a nightmare some aspects became. I do not want that to happen to you. Put your trust in me and relax knowing everything will be done to your liking. I love my job, my 3 year old son and I would love to get to you know better! Please give me a call or send an email — let’s hope I have your date available!

When it came to my Wedding day, I wanted the best Photographer that there is. I instantly knew who I wanted, Moments Captured by Vanessa. I could not have asked for a better day, photographer, or better guidance. Vanessa was amazing and so helpful with everything, and flexible. My husband and I were working with her from Canada, and she did all she could do to help us and work with us when we were in the area visiting family. She gave us advice on day of photos, transportation, location ideas, and over all helped me to keep my nerves in check.
I don't think that there was a single photo that we got that I didn't Love!!! Vanessa is the best and if you give her that chance she will prove to you that no one can beat her! Thank you for capturing our most important day ever!

Being from a small town, it’s hard to make big decisions. Booking Moments Captured by Vanessa was one of the best “big” wedding decisions that I could have made. Vanessa is absolutely wonderful. She goes above and beyond to make your special day perfect. She worked extremely hard to make us feel comfortable and to accommodate us in every way possible. Not to mention, her work is breathtaking. She captured unthinkable photos and still made sure we had a good time. I, honestly, recommend Vanessa to every person that asks me if I know a quality photographer. Never underestimate that small town feeling.

Service: My husband and I just got married October 4th! Vanessa was by our side the WHOLE time. To enlighten more on how she was part of our journey to marriage, I will list a few prime examples: she helped us set our itinerary times for that day (who better than the person who spends ALL day with you?), she took time out of her day to spend an unexpected moment with my parents who "dropped into her studio because they were worried about not standing right in the pictures" (that one makes me laugh, I was the first of my siblings to get married!), and she made adjustments as we went on the day of our wedding-still allowing us to accomplish all we wanted (oh it's raining now, lets do this instead...). So for that reason, I rate her service as excellence!

Quality: What a genuine photographer who's passion for the camera is evident to all! When deciding which photographer to get, my soon to be sister in law who had Vanessa capture her wedding 5 years prior said "I remember telling her I wanted a certain picture in our field...and there she went, she was down laying on the ground in her dress pants and high heals trying to capture the picture I wanted!" The day after our wedding both are parents said, "you can tell she really knows what she's doing..she just moves around and does her thing!" Vanessa will give it her all to capture the moments YOU tell her are important to you-so for that, another excellence!

Lastly, value: We have almost been married a month and I look at our pictures every day! Each time I smile so big my face hurts...and then I start to tear up realizing the precious moments that are forever captured thanks to Vanessa. My husband and I are so thankful we decided to make our photographer one of the top things on our budget we splurged on-we could have never put a price on the memories we will have for a lifetime! So another excellence awarded Vanessa's way!

Thanks Moments Captured for your extraordinary passion towards photography!

I really appreciated Vanessa's solid organization skills, promptness, and willingness to customize a package that worked for us. She created a package that was fairly priced, and exactly what I wanted--which was time and printing rights. The part of her work that drew me in were all the candids, and the ability to capture moments that were happening. She has gone to school for photojournalism, and it really shows. I was able to get beautiful posed photos, and she really got the emotions that were happening. There were parts of the day that I wasn't around, that I was able to see through her shots; the guests arriving at church, guests arriving and mingling at the reception, people dancing, and the many people we talked to. I ended up with over 1200 photos, and I love every single one of them. She also delivered them SUPER quick. I've had friends waiting for their photos for months, and I got to see mine within a few weeks. Vanessa is very personable and really easy to work with.

Having beautiful wedding pictures was one of the most important things for me since the pictures are forever. I was continuously looking online for a good photographer in our area when I stumbled across Moments Captured by Vanessa's website. Upon talking with her, I knew I had to book her. She was very friendly and always responded back to me quickly.
On our wedding day she was a pleasure to work with. She seemed just like an attending friend at the wedding. I did not even notice pictures were being taken of us as we were upfront, saying our vows; (I was always scared of having a photographer who is up in our faces, clicking away, and blocking our guests view thanks to wedding shows).
Another aspect that was important to me was that I did not want the generic pictures where smiles seem forced and everyone is stiffly posing. Needless to say, our pictures turned out beautiful and full of life! They were everything I had wanted. My husband and I are very happy that we found her!

Vanessa is very professional in her work, attire, and communication. Having her take our pictures was worth every penny because we cannot put a price tag on the memories she captured on our special day. Her work experiences helped us plan our wedding day. We were able to get all the photos we had hoped and more! Very creative and flexible as well!

Vanessa was absolutely amazing during our big day! My husband is usually very "stiff" in pictures, but Vanessa made him feel very comfortable, and we got a ton of really amazing shots. It took me over a month to figure out which pictures needed to go into our wedding album (which Vanessa designed), mostly because each time I would get on to make sure I had all of the pictures that I wanted in it, I would get distracted looking at how gorgeous and amazing all of the other pictures are!
She was also incredibly helpful with setting up a timeline for our wedding day--and she made sure we were where we needed to be at the right times. (My dad was very glad that we were able to eat dinner on time!) Plus, she came on the bus with us and got some great pictures of our bridal party!
She was more than willing to work with me to create a package that was in our price range and would help to make sure we got pictures of every aspect of our day. She also did our engagement session, and was willing to come to my parents house to take pictures in their backyard!
I absolutely recommend Vanessa to everyone who asks about wedding photographers-she is amazing and we definitely have lots of pictures to help us relive our wedding over and over and over again!

My husband and I are extremely happy with the ever lasting memories Vanessa captured in our wedding photos. Vanessa and her assistant went above and beyond to capture every moment that happened on our wedding day. Our wedding album is absolutely stunning. Vanessa makes it nearly impossible to choose a favorite photo, we loved them all! Not only were we completely satisfied with our photos, Vanessa is great to work with. She offers a lot of support in making decisions, prepares a schedule for the day, ensures that you stay on schedule, and has a great personality. I would absolutely recommend Vanessa as your wedding photographer. Vanessa will always be the one photographing (along with her assistant if needed) and will capture beautiful photos for you to cherish forever.

Everyone has a different vision for their big day. And I believe that Vanessa could make each and every vision come true. She was more than just a photographer; she was also my event planner. She helped me organize the timeline for the day, she offered to contact my DJ when I couldn't reach him, and she was there to let me cry when I lost my grandpa just 6 days before my wedding. She was there to make sure I got each and every photo that I wanted. She was able to get posed shots (which I was convinced I didn't want, but yet, LOVE each and every one of them), and make them look like candid shots. Not to mention that the candid shots she did take, look so phenomenal.

I cannot express my gratitude for having Vanessa be a part of our big day. The week before, my husband decided to stay in a hotel down there, and Vanessa had Dave, her assistant, meet Ben and his groomsmen at the hotel, with me texting her the address the DAY OF. And my day started out fine, with plans to meet Vanessa at 1:30pm at our venue. Three of us showed up about 10 minutes late, with one girl already at the venue. Vanessa had already started on the shots that she could take without the bridal party. Which was great, because the other three bridesmaids had gotten into a car accident and showed up only half an hour prior to the ceremony. Vanessa did absolutely everything that she could to make sure I still got all of the shots I wanted with my girls.

I know that I rambled on a bit about my day, but it was only to show the gratitude for Vanessa. She did everything in her power to make sure that I had the best day possible. Not only that, she got our photos out online less than two weeks after our wedding. Vanessa went above and beyond what a photographer does at a wedding. Somewhere between the photos, the cake cutting, and the dancing, she became my friend.
