Creating memories with
Film photography

I remember the day I fell in love with film. What caught my eye was the softness, the colors, and how painterly each image looked. It wasn't long before I incorporated film into my work. And since then, my work has transformed allowing me to create a living piece of art for my couples to hang on their walls.

Let's set-up a time to connect and chat about the two of you and the experience you're hoping to create for your wedding. 

Out-of-state? Not a problem. Like 90% of my clients, setting up a Facetime call works perfectly.


next step

After your consultation, I'll send an online proposal that will allow you to review and sign an agreement (so we have all of my promises to you in writing) and pay your 40% retainer*--your date is officially reserved!

*Payment plans are available. Just ask!


next step

Time to warm up and prep for the big day! We’ll select an amazing location and I’ll direct you every step of the way. This is the perfect opportunity for us to become acquainted with one another. 


next step

The day is here! A few months prior to your wedding we will iron out the details of the day including your timeline. This will help us ensure that you have a wonderful and stress free day giving you the time to breathe in all the little moments. Myself and second photographer are driven by your genuine emotions and beautiful moments, we will work together using natural light to capture your day in a soft, romantic and elegant way. 


next step

Images are delivered 7-10 weeks following your wedding (though you'll receive a gallery of sneak previews prior to this point--we know the wait is hard!). We'll upload your edited images to an online gallery that will allow you to view instantly, download high-resolution files, and (the best part) share right away with your family and friends!

"They are truly a Dream"

Thomas & Moira

They truly are a dream team. Her work in both digital and film is of the highest care and quality. We received a sneak peek of our photos after our wedding day and loved them all so far. We are super excited to receive the rest of our photos to see what other magic she was able to capture!

"Went Above and Beyond"

Sean & Laura

After searching all over, we stumbled upon Vanessa Marie Photography and never looked back! Vanessa went above and beyond to make our wedding experience special. From our first FaceTime meeting, we knew that she would be the perfect fit for us. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera by walking us through the process and using humor along the way.
