Capturing your Wedding

I believe in cultivating a relationship with my couples prior to the wedding day so that on the morning of your wedding we are no longer strangers, but friends sharing in on the wonderful occasion.

We’ll laugh, we’ll shed tears of joy, and you’ll most likely see me get a little emotional during your vows. I too am all in with this love stuff and married the love of my life just a few years back. Truth be told, weddings are my life.

Watching all of my couples tie the knot over the years has not only strengthened my love for the work that I do, but it also encapsulates everything I believe in about marriage. I truly cannot wait to witness this monumental milestone in your life.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out so we can chat further about all of the exciting details surrounding your wedding.

Cheers to you, lovebirds.

Xoxo, Vanessa

Wedding Photography - Beyond the Midwest

Near or far? My travels to document a couple saying I Do have taken me from coast to coast. Whether your big day takes place in your backyard or at a paradise that is close to your heart, but not necessarily close to home, I would be honored to be a part of your wedding celebration wherever that may be.
