An outlook on experience:

I was once told that you experience a moment three times: First, you experience it in anticipation of the way it will unfold in time; Second, you experience it when the event is happening in real time and tangible space; and Third, you experience it in reminiscing through all of your memories and photographs. Somehow, to me, the Third seems the richest of all - like a postcard you've sent to yourself for a later date.

"Vanessa is both an incredible photographer and a magnificent person. She was extremely confident and thoughtful throughout the shoot. She knew exactly where to go, but at the same time was willing to stop and move to anything we thought would be fun. The end product is nearly an example of the extraordinary talent this woman has, and its value is priceless."

-Zachary Schmidt


“Vanessa has such an incredible eye

and knack for working with people.

I’ve never been more comfortable in front of a camera but Vanessa’s warmth and instruction made our couple’s photoshoot so relaxed and enjoyable. She has an incredible design direction and was a complete delight to work with.

We will treasure these photos for the rest of our lives!”
