Hello! I’m Vanessa! A ginger. A Colorado lover. An outdoor enthusiast. A lover of good coffee and bourbon. A traveler. A road biking aficionado. A photographer. A wife. A mom. And one happy girl. 

I’m married to my college sweetheart and best friend. Together, every day is an adventure as we raise our two spirited and beautiful little red-headed girls. You may find us biking to the local bakery, breaking into a spontaneous dance party in the kitchen, loading up our car for an impromptu road trip, or sneaking out early for a Kentucky mule and walk along the river.  We’re putting our heart and soul in to loving God and living life to the fullest in a cute little corner of southwestern Colorado.

With ten years of wedding photography experience, I absolutely love what I do! I specialize in photography for the couple who love fun, natural, sun-drenched photos. You and your love story are so important to me and I want to create a collection of photographs that you will treasure for a lifetime. It's my job to create an enjoyable, organized wedding photography process from start to finish, so that you can feel totally at ease about the photography on your wedding day.

How would you describe your style of photography?

I photograph in a fine art mixed with photojournalism style. I focus on capturing images that tell the story of who you are as a couple. Natural. Intimate. Sun-filled. Bright. Breathtaking. And beautiful. 

I believe that getting your picture taken should be easy and fun…without all the fuss. Captured in a natural outdoor setting to make you look your absolute best. I want to capture authentic moments that are true to who you are. 

I'll work with you to pose and put you in settings and lighting that makes you look the best ... then I'll let your natural interactions take center stage. On a typical wedding day, I'm a mix of hands on and behind the scenes. For couple, group, and family photos, I'm comfortable and happy to give direction, which helps things to run smoothly. Once it comes to the ceremony and the reception party starts rolling, I'll be more behind the scenes, capturing the moments as they naturally unfold.
