I can’t say enough about Victoria. She shot my engagement pictures and made my husband and I feel so comfortable and guided us through every pose. She made it feel natural and fun. After seeing how beautiful my engagement pictures turned out and how awesome the experience was with her I knew I needed her to photograph my wedding. She captured every moment perfectly and made me feel like the most beautiful bride. She was so accommodating and easy to work with. She knew my style and got all of the angles I wanted and more. She captured our day flawlessly and I would recommend her to anyone.
I did a one on one shoot with Victoria and she made me feel so beautiful. I was nervous going into it, but she walked me through every pose and made it feel natural. We played music and had a so much fun with it. If you ever need someone to boost your morale, make you feel beautiful, and make you feel like a bad ass empowered woman – Victoria is your girl.
Victoria has been such an amazing photographer to work with. She has an eye for capturing some of the most beautiful and organic moments of our family. She has taken our engagement photos, pregnancy announcement photos, maternity photos, and soon our newborn photos! I am so grateful to have these precious memories to decorate our home with. She has such a natural warm energy and creative eye. Victoria provided us with a sneak peak of our session that same day and within a week or two we had an entire library to adore. I highly recommend V Photography for any season of life!

To be honest, Victoria was not our original photographer. Queue those '2020 COVID wedding vibes'. We had this grand wedding venue plan, 220 guests, vendors secured, deposits down... until everything shut down the beginning of November, 2020 due to a spike in MN cases.
Replan the original plans, downsize, cancel?
We decided that 1/8/2021 was our date no matter what, so scratch those traditional wedding rules. We cancelled the venue and let all of our vendors know we would be traveling to a small Airbnb in Duluth (that’s where we had our first date, got engaged, so what a perfect place to get married!).
Our original photographer at the time was not comfortable traveling, which at this point we were about a month out from the wedding. Ensue panic mode. One of my bridesmaids husbands knows EVERYONE! “Ryan, do you know a photographer?"
"Yup, her name is Victoria and here is her number.”
I texted Victoria and her response was instantaneous, "I’m in!" Boom, contract signed! She mentioned she was also a COVID bride, so she knew exactly how I was feeling which was soooo reassuring. Victoria was willing to travel to Duluth, on short notice, and she even reached out asking if I needed any help on the planning side! She really went above and beyond. We got so lucky finding Victoria! I even heard (multiple times) how people wish that Victoria would have been their wedding photographer!
While in Duluth, Victoria was prompt, kept great timing flow while staying flexible, had posing ideas, was able to direct and articulate her photo ideas in a way everyone was able to understand. She also worked side by side with the videographer duo, it was so natural you would have thought they had worked together daily!
Our pictures are what we will show everyone who were not able to make the wedding, and we cherish them!
Victoria’s timeline to completion was 4-6 weeks and we received the email 4 weeks later saying our HUNDREDS of edited pictures were ready. Victoria hit it out of the park with the winter wedding vibes! The website she used worked flawlessly to download and it was very user friendly with thoughtful pre labeled folders! The website link was the link I sent so others could view, and no one had any issue with access to the pictures, even had the ability to download the ones they wanted.
Although like I mentioned above, we originally did not have Victoria to photograph our wedding, luck was on our side when she said she was ready to go to Duluth and we are so happy that she was able to capture our special day!
