"At the end of the day, it isn’t where I came from. Maybe home is somewhere I’m going and never have been before."

"In the flush of love's light, we dare be brave. And suddenly we see that love costs all we are, and will ever be. Yet it is only love which sets us free."
Maya Angelou

ELLIOTT + GREG

“Vanessa did an absolutely wonderful job capturing our wedding day! She was a delight to work with - she was thoughtful, had wonderful ideas and listened to what we had in mind for photos as well. From the couple shots, to the wedding party pics, to the smallest of detail shots, the pictures were all BEAUTIFUL! The real moments, laughs, hugs, tears, and love really came through in our photos! These two GROOMS could not be happier!”

Carly + Len

"Vanessa was absolutely wonderful to work with. She managed to capture moments instead of poses, and it seemed like she cared as much about us and our wedding as if she were a long-time friend. She also did an incredible job of getting awesome shots while being very Unobtrusive. Both our engagement photos and our wedding photos were even lovelier than we expected, and we couldn’t be happier about our overall experience!"

Jessica + Quinn

"Vanessa's professionalism, skill, creativity and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. Everyone who has seen the wedding album loves the photos. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for truly special photographs that capture everything! We are also looking for another opportunity to hire her again soon!”

I'm Vanessa, and my life revolves around my enchanting daughter - a fierce, beautiful little soul - adventuring with my incredibly supportive and astonishingly handsome husband, and pursuing my life-long love affair with photography. I'm originally from the American tundra (Minneapolis, MN), but am now based in the blessedly balmy city of Durham, NC. My lovely family is Cuban-Peruvian-African American-Swedish-Thai-Dutch-American, which means we eat so, SO well. We have two adorable doggos: Cid, an elderly curmudgeon of a Froston (Google it), and the giant Boxer baby, Phoebe, a spastic ball of love and drool. My life is full, and I am grateful. 

I firmly believe that love transcends all bounds - whether it be race, nationality, religion, gender, sexuality, or any other perceived difference. Weddings are. my. jam. I relish the honor of being witness to - and capturing - the joy, the electric anticipation, the beauty of love shared and celebrated and exalted.  Love is love is love is love, y'all!
