More than ever expected!
My husband & I couldn't be more happy with Vanessa because her services were worth every penny! We were halfway through planning our wedding as covid initially hit. Between canceling & replanning our wedding, Vanessa made sure to make herself available to us. She helped us feel comfortable from the engagement session to our wedding day. This was our first time having a photographer, least to say we are no models, but damn did she make us look like we were! Vanessa made family photos a breeze & timely.. especially when I forgot to add some members to the list (oops). She was also so stealthy! A true wallflower in the best way b/c her photos proved that we put our trust in the right person to capture every moment! The list goes on; her friendly demeanor, positive words from guests, & personalizing our album. We couldn't be more grateful.. for her presence during a pandemic and for the endless amount of beautiful photos she's given us to look back on. Thank you!Sent on 01/29/2021

Best photographer ever!
Vanessa Lain Photography! I mean wow! We are so grateful that we chose her as our wedding photographer. We were married in the Santa Cruz mountains and she blew us away. The light was always changing, because of clouds and trees, yet she knew exactly what to do and when. She directed us and made the entire process seamless. When it was time for the reception she blended in with our guests, we didn’t even know she was there! We have the BEST wedding photos with fun shots of everyone and couldn’t be more pleased. Our wedding day went by fast, so we are glad we went with such an amazing and professional photographer. We love the memories captured by her. Thank you Vanessa!Sent on 03/30/2020
