I am Victoria. I am a photographer, a sister, a daughter, a girlfriend, a friend and a dog mom to a furry little guy named Charlie. I picked up a camera when I was 15 and never looked back. Well that’s not true. I did change my major in college (Go Hoosiers!) like 5 times but ultimately landed on photojournalism. I studied abroad in Paris my junior year and fell even more in love with the art of photography as I photographed the city of love. I love, love. I love weddings. I mean, I literally changed my name to Annie when I was 5 years old for a hot sec because I wanted to be Annie Banks from Father of the Bride. I also changed my name to Daisy Rainbow but that’s a different story and not on topic.
When I am not photographing or editing, you can likely find me in the home decor section of the nearest Target sipping an iced coffee or in a bath reading some kind of “self-help” book (I hate calling them that but thats really what they are. If you haven’t read the Defining Decade or The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, run don’t walk to your nearest Barnes and Nobles… or, you know, use Amazon Prime like I always do).
I love romantic images that make you feel something. Those in-between moments that, while small, make you smile the biggest.
Special talents include drinking a bottle of red wine while dancing and DJing for hours without playing the same oldie twice.
