Hello! I’m Josie V, an outspoken lesbian, mindful creative, and former ski bum.
When I was 8 I came home from a family trip in Colorado and proudly announced to my friends that I would be moving to Colorado one day. That day came the day after my college graduation. I left North Carolina for the west and have spent the years since soaking in the gorgeous wilderness of the west.

I’ve had a camera in my hand since I could hold one, always in competition to take better candid photos than my mom. I studied Art & Design in school and that knowledge has given me polished compositional skills, and bold, editorial color palettes.

But enough about me…

I’m here for you and your love. As a destination wedding photographer based out of Colorado, I specialize in creating vibrant editorial images.

I’ll be a gentle guide helping you feel comfortable in front of the camera, directing, and retreating when needed. As a natural connector, I pride myself on being able to balance the energy in the room and capture authentic personalities. I manage it all so you can stay in the present moment.

There really are not enough words of praise I can give to Josie for capturing our engagement and wedding photos with such spectacular consistency, skill, and creativity. We had almost 1000 photos from our wedding day alone, and we loved almost every single one! It's frankly overwhelming, in the best possible way.

Josie was professional, kind, and fit in seamlessly to our very small and intimate wedding in the mountains. She was right there with us every step of the way, and captured every moment beautifully. I genuinely enjoyed Josie's company on our special day, which made everything feel so much more natural and comfortable. And that shows in the photos.

Artistically, Josie's work is superb. We loved the photos we saw on her site and knew we liked her style, but the photos we received really knocked our socks off. Additionally, she was super quick to turn around some sneak peek photos, which was awesome!

I so highly recommend Josie for your photography needs. You will not be disappointed!

If Josie is available, book her. That’s my advice!

Working with Josie was like working with a friend. She was so personable and her passion for her art shines through so profoundly. A week before our wedding, our permit at Rocky Mountain National Park was cancelled due to COVID and we were obviously disappointed. When I told Josie, she didn’t miss a beat; she recommended a sunrise “engagement shoot” earlier in the week in RMNP so that we could still get the mountain-vibe photos we dreamed of.

The shoot was PERFECT. I cannot even describe how natural she made us feel. If you are someone who thinks you always look awkward in photos (me!), do not worry. She easily directs you and makes the process so natural and enjoyable. It felt like we were just going on a hike and happened to get some jaw-dropping photos in the process. After the shoot, she sent us some sneak peaks within a couple of hours, and we COULD NOT WAIT for her to capture our wedding a few short days later.

We had a small wedding, only 13 people, and her help was invaluable. She was sure to coordinate with both me and our videographers to get the wedding day timeline set and be sure everyone was on the same page. On the day of the wedding, she showed up early and was somehow able to document SO much of the day. Between shots of the accessories, the guys getting ready, the girls getting ready, the first look with my dad and I, and shots of the family before the ceremony, I don’t know how she did it all. After the ceremony, she took charge and again offered amazing direction while taking group shots of us with family and friends. Everyone that was there still tells me how amazing Josie is.

We have so so many incredible photos to remind us of our wedding trip, and I can NOT say enough about Josie and her talent and professionalism through it all. She stays in constant contact throughout (and sends the sweetest care packages!) and made the process so much less stressful, for which I am so grateful!
