    How I cater to offbeat weddings

    One of the first weddings I photographed (almost a decade ago) was for two punk rock tattoo artists. She wore a scarlet gown, they got married by a comedian, and then drank PBRs and danced all night long.

    I thought “if all weddings are like this, I want to witness them”.

    Turns out, not every wedding would be like this, but I made it my mission to seek out the bold ones, the unique ones, the counterculture ones, the intimate mountain-top ones. When I work with clients that are unapologetically true to themselves, I feel the most fulfilled.

    I adapt my business practices to avoid things like gendered language or posing based on assumptions of relationship roles. My goal is to reflect what is already there, not impose a Pinterest vision. I like to learn a good deal about every couple I work with, so I go into every day knowing family dynamics, stories, and preferred pronouns.

    My goal is to create something that feels true.

    "There is something so incredibly magical about Vera - the photos she takes and the experience she creates - it's enchanting. She not only captures moments beautifully, she creates artistic memories and experiences to document some of the most important events in people's lives. I'm grateful for her every time I look at our photos, and think back on our journey together. "
    -MaLinda

    "She was the absolute best photographer we could have EVER asked for! She is both professional, creative, and amazing at what she does!!! My photos were more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed of, they are exactly what I wished my wedding photos to look like! "
    -Rachael

    "Vera photographed our wedding, and we absolutely could not have made a better choice. Her talent is of superhero/wizard proportions. She perfectly captured the love and magic of an unforgettable weekend. Vera is incredibly laid back, personable, and talented. Couldn't recommend her enough."
    -Shae
