Meet Vanessa

Portrait of photographer

Based near Boise, Idaho, I’ve had the privilege to work with so many fantastic people over the years through shooting weddings and portraits.

With your input, I’m able to capture what is most important to you, and make your wedding day the special and beautiful thing it is meant to be.   For booking information visit the contact page.

I also have a good grounding in event curating, so I can help ease the stress of wedding planning. Something I bring to my clients is that I have a ready made list of suppliers you can choose from (or not!).  This list is intended to ease the headache of wedding planning by having individuals and companies I have worked with previously and highly recommend based on their integrity and quality of work.

You may not wear that dress again, but you certainly will look at your photos over and over again.  I look forward to working with you to make your wedding day one to never forget.

You can also find me on InstagramFacebook, and Pinterest!

Your Experience

Thank you for booking with me!  I am excited to start working with you and help you create your beautiful day.  Once you leave me your contact information I will get back to you as soon as possible with a client meeting date and some ideas for the photos you would like to have hanging on your living room wall.

After our meeting or phone call, I will set up a session date that works for both of us.  Shortly thereafter you will receive a style guide catered to your session.  This will provide tips on how to look your absolute best in front of the camera and what to expect.

Unless specified otherwise, your session will last between one and a half to two hours.  (If you have chosen a wedding package, we will get more specific on your time details.)    When our session concludes, it will be about one week for portrait sessions and thirty days for weddings before your photos will be ready.  I will, however, provide peeks at my progress along the way.

After you receive your photos, don’t become a stranger!

Here are what others have said about their experience.
