are you ready for the best memories

We are lovers of love, we document weddings with passion and creativity. It's not just about the beautiful images but about capturing the moments that truly matter and every detail in between. From getting into your dress to seeing your dad for the first time, to walking up to the ceremony and capturing the love. For us, no detail is left behind, we strive to get everything that is important to you and beyond. Many photographers will stop once they get the necessary, we won't stop until we leave for the night.

ABOUT

02

We are based out of Miami, Fl, with hubs in New York City and Puerto Rico but we are wanderlusters and we would love to travel the world in an air ballon if it was possible. We are Wedding Photographers and Artisans. We curate each and every image we give our clients and this is one of the reasons we have the privilege of being featured in multiple wedding blogs. We love all weddings, be it day or night, we will always prefer natural light but we are experts at artificial illumination at night.

Our Collections begin at $4,000

It's hard to start a review like this with any other word than, Wow.
Vanessa  literally made our wedding.
I don't say that lightly either. I am in the wedding business and poured my heart into a lot of details for our wedding. Vanessa saw that and worked to capture every detail. She was not only flexible, but went out of her way to make me comfortable. 

LITERALLY MADE OUR DAY"

"VANESSA

A PUERTO RICO DESTINATION WEDDING

Streater & John

I. Love. Vanessa. I wish I could move to Puerto Rico just to be friends with her... In all seriousness, I can't imagine that there is a photographer on earth who was a better fit for us than Vanessa! On a personal level, she was easy-going, calm, and fun which helped us feel the same way despite wedding day jitters. We planned our wedding from Chicago, and our wedding planner sent us a long list of photographers. I knew that Vanessa was the one the second I saw her work. Her photos were natural, beautiful, and attuned to the little details which I loved. My husband and I don't necessarily love getting our picture taken so we knew we wanted the least-staged photos possible. 

ON earth! who was a better fit"
