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? I'm your gal! 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 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.
I specialize in candid documentary. My philosophy: embrace the weird in you. The quirks, the smirks, and the unguarded moments are the ingredients to making elopement photos an authentic representation of you. When I'm in the zone, I become some sort of ninja where I blend in and not be obtrusive to anyone or anything. But I can make my presence known whenever I'm needed. I can easily transition from being inconspicuous to being the boss when it's time to wrangle family members for the family photos. I capture elopements from as many different points of view and angles as I can. Whether it's the detail of the decor, or the raw moments shared between you and your partner, or even the tantrums of the flower girl or the ring bearer ‚Äì you can bet I've got them in my reel! Above everything else, I want YOU to feel COMFORTABLE in your own skin, ENJOY the experience and be CONFIDENT that you have one less item to think about on your wedding day.
