HI! I’m Vanessa Kruse. A little bit about myself….. I’m passionate about my family, I have an amazing husband, a precious little boy and beautiful daughter. My kids are absolutely the most photographed kids ever. If you’ve met me in person then you’ve probably seen my whip out my iPhone to show you a photo (or 20) of them. I love it.  I’ve been blessed to be photographing weddings and portraits and involved in the photography industry for the past 7 years. I grew up in South East Aurora and somehow I’ve lived in the same couple mile radius my entire life. I really do love living in Colorado. Beauty surrounds! One of the things I cherish about photography is learning the stories of my clients and helping them preserve memories! Most of my clients become my friends and I am so blessed to say that. I have some great people surrounding me!

Some things I love..

Jesus, coffee, laughing, crafting, decorating, painting, snowboarding, traveling, candy, DIYing, candles, getting pedicures, make up, cuddling, pink peonies, and pretty things.

Want to know more? You’re in luck; I’m a serious over-sharer. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to keep up with all of my antics.


My Style

I love the raw emotion of photojournalism. I believe in romantic lighting, incredible backgrounds and choosing locations very carefully. I never interrupt a moment. I never pose situations that are already so magical on their own. I am an observer, most of the time. With me, there is very limited intrusion and only when it is desired to achieve a particular artistic vision. I create timeless, beautiful and organic photography.
