HEYY, YOU MADE IT!!
I’m Victoria Saint Martin, the photographer behind Victoria Saint Martin Photography (duhh right? lol). I’m a hopeless romantic, like seriously I live off rom-coms and sappy love stories. I clearly have the best job in the world, being a wedding photographer in the greatest city in the world, Chicago! I feel so lucky and whole because I found where I belong. I feel right at home behind the camera and the love and energy my couples have re-charges me!! I literally leave engagement sessions and weddings on a HIGH.
Uff you guys, it’s been a long 9-10 months of re-branding, re-designing, and learning a lot!! I re-designed my logo, I re-designed my entire website, I’ve taken classes and workshops and mentorships for my wedding photography business, I co-run an online educational platform for photographers, and I recently landed a job being a photo editor for a national magazine. Phew!! I’m tired just thinking about all of that, but to be honest I LOVE every single part of it!! I don’t do anything without passion and my heart behind it.
So welcome, this is my first official blog post, one of many that are coming!! Those of you who know me know that I am a talker; I never shut up. But oddly enough I’m not the best writer so these blogs will always be short and right to the point. It will primarily be filled with wedding advice, my wedding photography with a short description of the couple’s day, and little about me here and there!!
Shout out to all my couples that put their trust in me for their big day. Big thank you to my support system, my family and friends, my photography community, and again all my amazing couples!! And a big thank you to you guys, whether you’re here as a friend or thinking about booking with me or even just looking for some wedding advice, your presence here means so much to me!!
Heres to new beginnings! I’m so excited for what the future has in store!
I know planning your dream wedding can be stressful, heres the thing though, you don't have to do this alone!! I got you! I will be your Chicago wedding guide helping you navigate the not so fun parts of planning your best day ever! I believe you should have FUN on your wedding day! I know, crazy right? Let me prove it to you!
