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! If you're like me ‚Äî if you're low-key and low-fuss ‚Äî then elopement weddings are pretty much the best thing ever invented. Eloping isn't a sacrifice, it's your golden ticket to having the happy, liberating, drama-free, and decidedly un-stressful day that you've always wanted! It's a first-choice, big-deal decision, and it deserves first-choice, big-deal documentation! Most photographers only offer 2-hour or half-day elopement photography packages. But to me, that doesn't do your day justice. I offer full-day elopement photography packages because, well, it's your freaking wedding day! Why not hike a mountain, head to the beach, or hit up city hall and have all-day photography that makes you feel special and have incredible photos to show for it?!If you're nodding your head right now like, ‚Äúhell yeah!‚Äù then send me a message and we'll get chatting.

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!
"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."
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 high-value half-day coverage that will cover all of the day's big moments (e.g. ceremony, family photos, mingling with guests), then the Pacific Willow Wedding Package is right for you. This package is perfect for couples looking for fewer hours than full-day coverage but who would still appreciate having high-quality images of their loves ones and the moments they shared. I want you to look back and remember the ear-to-ear smile as you saw your spouse for the first time, or the first time you saw your reflection, or the moment you burst into laughter at your best friend's stand-up improv. 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.
I love working with down-to-earth couples who are chill, in love, and looking for an experience that feels true to who they really are (read: nothing fake, forced, or cheesy). If I just described you guys, then we should chat! Book a complimentary consultation call with me and over a (virtual) coffee or a beer, we'll daydream about your photos while making sure we're a fit. Whether it's hiking the trails, watching the sunrise, or cuddling with the pets at home, we'll come up with a game plan and bring your vision to life!
