Welcome friend, my name is Vanessa

A wedding & elopement photographer by day, an event planner and location scout by night. You’d think I’m joking right? I am not. My name is Vanessa, I live in Portland, Oregon with my partner and our two rescue dogs. When I’m not photographing weddings, or helping clients plan an elopement - you’ll find me hiking up in the mountains, or chilling at the beach with the pups.

If you're planning to get married and want to do it your way - I'm here to guide you through the whole process!

Where do I even start describing the unreal experience we've had with Vanessa? She is mind-blowing in all aspects, from the communication and all the resources and tips she shared with us, to the amazing, fun experience we had on the day of our elopement. Hire her without second-guessing it - it will be your best decision and investment this far.
