About Vivien

Welcome To Viv’s Vision!

I’m a photographer, digital course creator, business mentor and trailblazer. I’m here to empower women to make a difference and create something truly beautiful, impactful and lasting that changes lives.

Over the past years I have helped several women to step into their power, start and grow businesses.

And from my own experience I know that there are MANY beautiful souls out there that long to make a difference in this world but don’t know how and are afraid to take the first steps and have a hard time believing in themselves and their work.

Originally from Germany, I’ve successfully manifested sunny Mykonos in Greece my home along with a thriving business that gives me time and money freedom.

I’m no stranger to the travel bug, having trotted through over 40 countries since the age of 18.

Now, as the brains behind Vivien Renziehausen Photography and Viv’s Vision, I’m on a mission to share my magic with you. My motto is

if I can do it, you can do it

and I truly believe that because I’m just a normal girl from a very tiny town in northern Germany. Nothing special.

In all my work I combine the internal work and energetics with the external work of having great offers in place that make your life easy.

I know how to uncover hidden talents and to point you in the right direction of creating truly amazing offers that attract the right clients

I understand how to teach you to brand and market your work based on your truth.

As featured in

When I began my journey as a photographer, I was amazed by how swiftly clients and money flowed in!

In just six months, I made more in a week than I used to earn in an entire month at my old job! It felt surreal. I increased my prices and yet, clients kept coming.

And what’s more: I became my own boss and had the freedom to plan my schedule just the way I wanted. It was a dream come true!

Happy customers

Vivien at work

When I was looking to become a pro I found that…

….in person courses took months or even years.

I wanted to earn my first money first and had no time to spend months in a classroom.

….a personal coach or intensive workshop was unaffordable

I didn’t have the money to invest in a personal coach at that time

….there were no courses that would teach me the very beginnings

How to find the right camera? How to set up your camera? Simple hacks that get you going in no time? Understanding the very basics in an easy way? Nope. Didn’t exist.
