Hey, I'm Vanessa! I'm an outdoor Vancouver-based elopement photographer for the empathetic + creative. Adventurous couples hire me to help them remember their weddings with natural photos that capture what's real. I'm super chill, and other than giving you awesome photos, I don't take anything too seriously. I live for golden light, couples in love, and dog kisses, and I'm always up for an adventure! I'm inspired by nature and that wide-awake, super alive feeling you get when you go out into the mountains. If you're planning an outdoor wedding or elopement, then I'm your girl!
A wedding day is a celebration more than anything, so let's capture the celebration and give yourself a beautiful memory to look back on. I want you to be able to put yourself back into the moment where you said 'I do' or 'heck yes' and relive the emotions. If you're looking for full-day coverage at great value, the Whitebark Pine Wedding Package is the one for you. This package is perfect for couples who want to look back and cherish all the moments, big and small, of their special day. I want you to remember the warm, giddy feeling as you saw your spouse all dressed up for the first time, or the happy tears as you hugged your family who flew from miles away, or the ear-to-ear smiles on you and all your best friends. I want you to have the photo proof that yes, your breakdancing moves really did tear up the dance floor, and I want you to have the beautiful formal photos with your family that you deserve. More than anything, I want you to walk away from this meaningful day knowing that you were able to do and experience everything you possibly wanted. Bonus: When you book the Whitebark Pine package, you and your partner will also get a free engagement photography session in the lead-up to the wedding (digitals included).
The StoryWe've been professional, full-time photographers and videographers for over a decade. We had formal training in fashion and filmmaking. Our work has been featured in magazines and has had the fortune to receive multiple awards. This makes us artists and storytellers at our core. We search for the story within you and bring it to our images with experience, creativity, and sophistication. We'll Be Your GuideWe will coach you through everything. Don't worry about looking stiff or not knowing what to do. We will be there by your side, especially with people that "don't know where to look" and "don't know where to put their hands." If directions are what you need, we have you covered. Our ApproachWe understand that you're unique. Some people want to look like a model, some people just want to be candid... We do both, and we do it in a way that is more than just creating and capturing your memories. It's about you enjoying those moments. They're true to you, in the moment, and created with an intention. Kind Words"I've had the privilege to work together with Lucho on several occasions. He's masterful at what he does, combining artistic vision with technical skills.It's one thing to take high-quality pictures with a camera and do some touching up; it's another when someone is able to express the essence of the moment itself. Lucho was excellent at understanding what I wanted in my photos and worked with me until I got results that exceeded my expectations!"-Alex
A Wise Woman Once Said F@ck This Sh!t. And She Lived Happily Ever After. What is an Elopement? We believe in the power and the beauty of marriage. We believe that your marriage is a union to be celebrated, and celebrated in the most intimate and personal fashion. The difference between a wedding and an elopement being the emphasis on the celebration of a marriage over the hosting of a wedding. What We Do Help lovers run away and elope in a beautiful, meaningful, and intimate way. We value an epic location, lovely vows, all while capturing the memory. An Elopement Is Two humans in love, with the smallest handful of witnesses, no bridal party, a marriage celebrant, and a photographer.
