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 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).
Want to make sure no-one misses your dance moves? Want to hit the town for those formal photos at your favourite date spot? This package is perfect if you're looking for the most comprehensive, all-inclusive wedding-day coverage. I'll be there from the ceremony, right through to formals and the wedding reception.
