“Let me tell you, there is a reason that Vanessa was voted as Hawaii's #1 Photographer! She is AMAZING! ❤️ We had the pleasure of having her photograph our engagement pictures in Maui when we were visiting on vacation and we are so thankful we had the opportunity to work with her! ❤️ From the moment I reached out to her to the day of our photos, she was quick to respond, made our time with her so fun and relaxing, and the pictures we received....just...WOW! ❤️ Vanessa, thank you for capturing our love in our most favorite place! If I didn't already have our wedding photographer booked we would be asking you to come to Arizona for our wedding! ❤️ If you are considering booking Vanessa for your photos, be like Nike and JUST DO IT. You won't regret it!!” ❤️ WHAT A TESTIMONIAL!! Just make me cry this morning!!😭 Trisha, your kind words are so appreciated!!! ❤️

TRUST. 🤞🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trust makes people vulnerable. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yet, within the first few minutes of meeting a new client, I ask them to TRUST me. 🤯⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You see, being an amazing wedding photographer is more than just the technical aspects of photography. 📸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can be ‘technically’ skilled, but lack skills in making your clients feel safe, comfortable, and creating TRUST in a matter of minutes. 👏🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is what makes me stand out as a photographer. Not just beautiful photos. But how I make my clients FEEL while they are with me. 🥰⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s a skill that you can’t technically teach. I think it’s a skill that comes natural. 🤗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When your clients TRUST you, they will INVEST in you. 🥳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And they will stand on sharp lava rock, not seeing what you are seeing. Holding their breaths, and trusting that I see them. I see the shot. 🌊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And they wait. 🤩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And we get said shot. 😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Choosing your photographer HAS to be more than just looking at their price! Can you trust your photographer? Enough to wait for the right moment, the right wave, the right shot? ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ THAT’S your photographer. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I hope that’s me!

Just a few more days left for 2019 weddings!!!! 💍 So excited for all of the 2019 weddings coming up this year!!!! Next week is a big week with 3 amazing weddings on the books!! 💍 Every wedding, I get so nervous , even though I’ve photograph over 100 of them. 💍 Mostly because I know how important this day is! I go through my notes, my shot list, the timeline, and my couples story the entire day before the wedding. I arrive early to make sure I know exactly where I want to place my couples for the day. I triple check my gear to make sure it’s in working order! 💍 All to make sure your day goes as smoothly as possible! 💍 It’s an honor when any couple chooses me to capture their special day, and I do not take it lightly!

Did you write or are planning to write your own vows for your wedding? 💍 Being a blended family, my husband and I chose what we would say for our vows, and then we also said vows to our children. We made them a part of our wedding since they were a part of our family! 💍
