Artistic Imagery that's Authentically YOU

Tell me more!

I photograph couples who are marrying their best friend and are ready to fully embrace the day as it unfolds. Stiff and overly posed photos aren't really my jam and pinky-promise that I'll never make you hold a pose for 3 minutes.

I'm a full-time traveling wedding and elopement photographer based in Northern California. I'm a total homebody with an extreme case of the travel bug and wouldn't want things any other way. I love me some Backstreet Boys on repeat (no shame!), road trips with my hubby and two pups, and spicy margaritas - the spicier, the better. 

hey there!

my name's vanessa.

I've never felt so at ease doing something so out of my element. From the second we met up with Vanessa she made us feel so comfortable with her bubbly and upbeat personality. She’s not only professional and talented, but warm and comforting.
