Weddings are magical and in many ways, they change us, wether we would like to admit it or not each wedding makes us see the different phases of love. Because I am a romantic at heart it makes me fall in love even more. The universe is such a beautiful place and there are so many kinds of love out there that it is magical when you witness it.

Each time we shoot a wedding we aim to capture that, the special love and bond you have with your special someone.What makes you, you. That magic spark that only you can create because in his infinite beauty God has created this for you and only you.

Our philosophy is simple, we document LOVE and we do it organically. We think all great images come from a place of knowing what love is and how to capture it. And that is what we aim for every time we pick up a camera.


"To love another person is to love the song that is in their heart and to sing it to them when they have forgotten." -Thomas Chambers

Vanessa was so delightful to spend time with on our wedding day! We both enjoyed her personality-she put us at ease. We have seen a few photos and they are magnificent. We cannot wait to see the rest of our photos. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer with a wonderful personality.

Vanessa was terrific to work with for my destination wedding. She and her assistant were very professional and knew exactly what photos to take and when. They were patient and were able to put me at ease. I enjoyed the wedding even more than I would have and receiving the photo preview a few days after the wedding allowed us to relive those beautiful moments all over again. Thank you so much Vanessa for the beautiful photos! They look like they could be in a magazine and they beautifully capture the happiness and love that filled the day. We will cherish them forever.

If I had to do it all over again I would hire Vanessa again in a heart beat!!!!! Her and her husband make an amazing team and there really aren't enough words to truly capture how thankful we are to have had her be such a special part of our day. The photos she took will be with us forever and I can't wait to see all of them. I've seriously been stalking all her social media waiting and honestly I just love looking at all her photos! We decided to do engagement pictures two days before our wedding in Puerto Rico and she surprised us with a poster of some of the shots she took on the day of the wedding. I'm pretty sure I cried when I saw the photos - I still can't stop staring at them. They are just beyond beautiful! She has such a great eye and passion that comes out in each of her photos. What she does is truly an art form. She made us feel comfortable at every moment and exceeded our expectations. She is worth every single penny. Photographs last forever and Vanessa is the best in the business as far as we are concerned.

It's hard to start a review like this with any other word than, Wow.

Vanessa (and E) literally made our wedding.

I don't say that lightly either. I am in the wedding business and poured my heart into a lot of details for our wedding. Vanessa saw that and worked to capture every detail. She was not only flexible, but went out of her way to make me comfortable. We did hire a wedding planner, but Vanessa was the one to help me change the layout of the ceremony. She was the one to contact the other vendors and arrange it. We hired Vanessa to do our Rehearsal Dinner too, so by the time the wedding came around we felt like old friends. She has a special eye for this and is a master in her field.

I feel like I should add, my husband is not a photos guy, he gets antsy and does NOT get excited about pictures. During dinner at the wedding, he turned to me and said, Vanessa and E are going to have to come to SC to photograph our next milestone. And I totally agree, they both helped John loosen up and take some amazing photos!!

I. Love. Vanessa. I wish I could move to Puerto Rico just to be friends with her... In all seriousness, I can't imagine that there is a photographer on earth who was a better fit for us than Vanessa! On a personal level, she was easy-going, calm, and fun which helped us feel the same way despite wedding day jitters. We planned our wedding from Chicago, and our wedding planner sent us a long list of photographers. I knew that Vanessa was the one the second I saw her work. Her photos were natural, beautiful, and attuned to the little details which I loved. My husband and I don't necessarily love getting our picture taken so we knew we wanted the least-staged photos possible. While we haven't seen them all, I know from the sneak peeks we got that Vanessa captured our day perfectly. The day before the wedding I started to get a little nervous that we wouldn't have time to capture all the locations we wanted (Fort and Old San Juan), but Vanessa was incredibly efficient. She even got us photos with the ocean in the background in both locations which was an added bonus! I've been in weddings where the photographer seemed very harried and concerned about the timeline, but Vanessa never sweated for a second. Finally, I have to say that Vanessa really took our personalities into account. My friends all laugh at me for being a cat lady, and Vanessa even captured photos with the street cats in Old San Juan in our photos! She really could not have been more perfect for us. Oh- and her assistant was phenomenal, too!

Vanessa is amazing!! She is as talented as she is kind. She captured our day in a way, I couldn't have imagined. When I looked at our pictures, I couldn't believe she was in so many places. She was present throughout our day without being invasive.

Her assistant worked primarily with my husband and the pictures are wonderful! The two of them were able to see every minute of our day for the special moments they were.

Leading up to our wedding, Vanessa was very easy to communicate with. She was quick to respond to emails and inquiries. She was very honest and thoughtful throughout the process. When I asked if I needed to add time to her contract, which would have added to the price, we talked about our timeline and she explained that she thought she could get everything done in the allotted time.

I can't express how pleased we were with having Vanessa be part of our wedding day!

I cannot say enough good things about Vanessa and her team. From e-mailing back and forth, to the day of, to our day after session, Vanessa was so nice to work with. And she was really fun! She had me laughing and very relaxed the day of the wedding. I love her work that I saw on her website, and from the preview pictures she's sent us so far (the wedding was only 1 week ago) we are very, very pleased with her work. She brought a team of people to help, and it all worked out really well. HIGHLY recommend Vanessa!
