Vanessa Embling Photography



he world came into full color when I quit my corporate job in the fashion industry in 2004 and went backpacking alone for three months to Australia, Fiji and New Zealand.  It was just me, my backpack and my camera.  I stayed in hostels, found my way around via Lonely Planet books, made lots of friends and had lots of adventures.  

When I arrived back in the States, I decided to go back to school to study photography in Boston, MA.  Since 2006, I have been working as a professional photographer and it has been a dream come true.  Photography has taken me around the world, photographing weddings, people, events, and landscapes as well as documenting humanitarian stories to help the poor and the needy. 


PHOTOS ARE THE HIGHLIGHT REEL FOR OUR LIVES. I love transforming moments into memories with my camera. 


Some of my favorite things: sunsets, meeting new people, laughing, sunshine, Mountain biking, hikes with my dog, Lake Life

important to me and what fills my soul.  Although I love traveling around the world, I discovered I found so much peace and joy retreating to the solitude of the lakes and woods in northern Wisconsin.  A new dream took flight when I moved to the northwoods and bought a fixer upper house on a lake.  During the week, I work remotely as an Executive Assistant and the rest of my time is filled with outdoor adventures and breathing in fresh air.  
     I photograph head shots, portraits, families, events, landscapes, and real estate.  I'm based out of Manitowish Waters, WI. 

   ell, 2020 brought a lot of things into focus for me.  It  helped me to see clearer than ever before, what is really
