a little about me...
HIIII!! I’m Victoria!! I am a chocolate binger, bad dancer, traveler, lavender lover, coffee addict, and I have also been voted the biggest hype man!!
I LOVE love. I grew up on 50 first dates and La La Land is my FAVORITE movie. Hello, I'm Victoria Saint Martin and I'm a hopeless romantic. I never thought I would end up where I am today, being able to not only witness true love but be able to kindle and capture it!! I am so grateful to get to say that I love what I do and I will literally never say this enough times, I LOVE MY JOB!!!
I call myself a love, life, and people photographer because I capture true emotions and BIG LOVE. I am not a photographer that is going to perfectly pose you; I am here to share experiences with you and document those moments, that when you look back at the images, make you FEEL something. I take time to get to know you as a couple because I want your photos to directly represent who you are together. Each love story is unique, and I will never be the photographer that tries to fit you into a “perfect image”. I think the love that you radiate makes the perfect image!!
Outside of working (that’s not much time at all), you could find me sitting on the floor in front of the poetry section of Barnes and Nobel's searching for my next read or planning my next adventure (preferably somewhere with mountains!!) or on the couch binge eating carbs and hanging out with my pup.
I graduated from Illinois State University with my Bachelor's in Fine Arts in Photography. I also studied abroad for a semester at Massey University in Wellington, New Zealand. It was the most incredible experience of my life! I miss my second home every day! I am located in the Chicago suburbs, but I LOVE to travel (if you don't believe me check out my travel gallery!)
If you're thinking "Oh man, I wish Victoria could photograph my wedding but we're eloping/ having a destination wedding/ don't live in Chicago...." INQUIRE ANYWAYSSS!! My DREAM is to combine two of my greatest passions, photographing love and traveling!! I have flown out for clients before and its honestly one of my favorite perks of my job!!
In the meantime, of planning your wedding or waiting for that new bling, please follow me over on my instagram to keep up with my day-to-day portfolio!! I'm constantly putting up all my super cute couples, behind the scenes videos, reviews and the best part... embarrassing stories of myself!!
If you’re ready to laugh till your cheeks hurt and fall in love all over again, let's grab a cup of coffee, or even better go out for a glass of wine, and get to know each other enough for me to become your number one fan!! (I wasn’t lying when I was voted biggest hype man!!)
located in the greater Chicagoland area
