A wedding is such a spectacular, momentous occasion. Mere snapshots cannot do a wedding justice. It is my vision to reflect the natural essence of the celebration in my images. The photographer you entrust with preserving those memories plays one of the most important roles in your wedding. It takes a remarkable affinity for people, expressions, and locations to be a superb photographer of weddings. Vilma's approach to photography tells a unique story with a distinct sense of artistry. She is inspired to capture the emotional content and beauty of this timeless ritual.

As the years will pass what will remain of your wedding are your photographs. Whether it's a large wedding, a small intimate affair or a portrait session, she wants your memories to be cherished for years to come.

Light, texture, dimension, mood, composition, anticipation, passion, emotion, excitement, energy, romance and relationships are the ingredients necessary to make great images at a wedding.


Vilma's career in photography spans over 17 years. She studied at the reknown Columbia College School of Photography in Chicago and refined her skills in the visual arts and photojournalism by working with some of Chicago’s top fine art, commercial and wedding photographers. Here is where she honed her photography skills and was able to develop my her own artistic approach to storytelling and spontaneity. Read less

Vilma is extremely talented but totally down to earth. She was easy to work with and listened to all of my ideas without any issues. Her main priority is making the bride and groom feel comfortable throughout the wedding day. My fiance and I had spoken with several other photographers in Kauai; some were outrageously old-school and others were more considerate of their own "vision" of my wedding than what I wanted for my big day. When I finally contacted Vilma, it was like a weight was lifted from my shoulders. She was genuine and calm; she laughed easily and made me feel so comfortable. When you're planning a destination wedding, finding a photographer is one of the most challenging tasks because you must feel relaxed around the camera. Thanks to Vilma, my groom and I look natural and gorgeous in all of our photos. I can't recommend Vilma highly enough!

Vilma was amazing! when My then boyfriend surprised me not only with a proposal but also a wedding option on our Kauai vacation. Vilma was responsive, flexible, and incredibly professional in accommodating our private impromptu service. I was nervous our special moment may have been diminished by lack of documentation! Sure we wanted something causal, but it was still our wedding day!! Vilma captured the true essence of our deeply personal commitments to each other in a way that makes me relive each moment with every shot. Whether your ceremony is big or small, extravagant or simple Vilma will make your day unforgettable!

Our wedding coordinator recommended Vilma as our wedding photographer and I couldn't be happier! I'm from California, and when we went to Kauai in April of 2010 we were able to meet with Vilma. My fiance and I instantly felt comfortable with her and she really knew the grounds of Smith's Tropical Garden where we married on 10/10/10. Her photography is beautiful and captured the essence of every special moment of our wedding day!

I cannot say enough about the service provided by professional photographer Vilma. From the first contact with her, she was helpful, responsive, caring, offered suggestions in Kauai, and very flexible for final wedding plans on the island. She met with us at legnth before the wedding and was so easy to get to know and show that she cared about us as a couple, not just another job. I am so thankful to have met her and now see the beautiful photos she took of our special day. I highly recommend her.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Vilma. She was extremely flexible and provided us with great advice for our location, flowers, etc. She was able to capture us as a couple and we couldn't be more excited about the pictures she took. Her prices are very reasonable and she worked extremely hard to make sure that we had the wedding we always dreamed of. I would definitely recommend her to those looking for a talented professional photographer!
