I stumbled upon Vikki on Instagram and her portfolio was what drew me in. From the beginning, communication was breeze. The many emails that we exchanged felt like she was a friend I’d already known. When the day came for our wedding shoot, there was no awkwardness, she was helpful in directing us how to stand and pose, and as an added bonus, she was the best hype woman ever!

She was the best hype woman ever!

I was referred to Vikki by a friend and I am SO glad I was!! We booked her for our wedding and after looking at her portfolio and chatting with her, I knew we made the right choice! Vikki is so friendly and fun to work with and she made our awkward nerves instantly go away. I can't wait for our wedding photos and would 1000% refer her to anyone looking to have a great photos taken and have a blast while taking them! Book her now!

We've never had a photoshoot before and we are so awkward. But somehow Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable with each other in front of the camera. She really tries to get to know you as a couple and reflect it through her photos. The pictures turned out amazing, and we knew we had to book her for our big day! We got so many compliments from our friends and family on our engagement photos. Can't wait to work with her again for our wedding!

Vikki made us feel natural and comfortable...

Alexis & Jeffrey



After going through the process of researching, I quickly realized that it's so so important to choose someone you connect with. From the get go, we were both so glad that we found Vikki. When we received our gallery we were speechless. We also sent our gallery to family/friends and told us that they were speechless & cried while doing so. How do you rate perfection? 5 stars isn't enough. Bride (and Grooms), if you are looking for a photographer, you WILL NOT regret hiring Vikki.

How do you rate perfection? 5 stars isn't enough...
