The truth is, eloping is an amazing way to get married in its own right. It's a loophole, a life hack. A way to have exactly the wedding day you've always imagined‚Äîwithout any of the fuss you don't care for. This is what makes elopements sooo special. It's also what makes them my favourite type of wedding to document! Do you want to spend the day hiking in the mountains? Going to the beach and splashing in the shallow waves? Getting hitched and eating or just having some drinks? Or, do you want to spend your day at home, barefoot, in PJ's, sharing your vows in your backyard under patio strings lights next to a bonfire? Do you need an outdoorsy, adventurous, game-for-whatever-you-have-in-mind, co-conspirator/photographer? Because if you are, I just might be your girl! If you consider yourself pretty chill and low-key, if you feel a bit uncomfortable about the idea of a big wedding, or if you dream of getting married in a more remote location, then it might be right for you! If you're planning to elope and still need to find the right photographer for you, drop me a line. We'll grab a bevvy, chat about your perfect day together, and I'll even help you plan. I can't wait to hear what you've been daydreaming about!

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!
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
"It's not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters." Weddings are such beautiful occasions of love. As a photographer, it's my goal to ensure you'll have gorgeous wedding photos to look back on for the rest of your lives -- from the vows, to the kiss, to the formal photos with your family and wedding party. If you're looking for top-notch photography coverage at fantastic value, the Full Wedding Session is tailor-made for you. My camera has followed me everywhere for over nine years. My style as a photographer is to look for the little moments: when you're brimming with happy tears walking up the aisle, or bear-hugging your best friends who you haven't seen in months. With me, you can rest assured that those priceless moments won't go missed -- and you'll be able to keep reliving them long after you've said "I do."
