I have a lifetime passion for photography. While capturing sunsets and beach life off the isle of Molokai, I developed a love of capturing the innate beauty in people, photographed naturally, in their own environments in their own time. The result is Lifestyle Photography. Patience, timing and a keen sense of anticipating a scene make my images unique. I enjoy collaborating with teens for their senior photography here in Anchorage, Alaska and am deeply honored when parents fly their teen into Anchorage from remote areas all over Alaska, to photograph with me.  I enjoy the connections that I have with families. Especially when they come back to photograph with me, year after year.

Weddings are an ideal venue for my contemporary approach – capturing the magic of the day as well as the depth of feeling in a contemporary way. Someone recently described my work as natural and honest. I love that! It is what I strive for. Your comments and feedback are always appreciated. I invite and encourage you to leave comments on my blog. Please visit my website here: renee vanni images.
