Hi! I'm Vanessa! Documenting and capturing love stories is what drives my soul. The little, sweet moments between husband and wife, the story of your lives together, and being able to tell that story for you is why I love what I do. There’s something so magical about that first look when a bride is walking down the aisle and locks eyes with her new husband, and that first dance where all eyes are on the bride and groom, but all they see is each other. My job is to capture the memories and special moments of that day, in a way that will hopefully touch your heart and the ones close to you.
Serving Austin, TX and surrounding areas.
I’d love to meet you and chat about capturing your precious moments that you and your family can cherish for generations.

I cannot express enough how AMAZING Vanessa is. We were so excited to have Vanessa as our wedding day photographer but after getting a few of our sample photos back we are ECSTATIC that she captured our wedding. When we got our first wedding photo back our jaws literally dropped they were so breath taking. The amount of compliments we have received on just the few photos we have received so far is overwhelming. She was so delightful to work with during our wedding day and has a great eye at capturing photo-worthy moments. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Vanessa as your photographer, it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.Sent on 02/19/2018

When planning a wedding, some of the plans are fairly easy and others a little more involved and time consuming. But Laura and I felt that the most important (and probably the most stressful) was picking our photographer. Now, having a sister as a professional photographer makes picking our own a little more difficult. Not knowing much about the process, my sister was consulted and she agreed to look at some photographers and then send us some to look at and interview. Interview?? Who’d have thought we would have to interview somebody to take pictures. I mean really, how difficult could it be? Let me tell you... You can look at a hundred different pictures from several different photogs and they all start to look the same. Except for Vanessa’s. Her pictures had an allure like none other. There was something different about them, but I couldn’t put a finger on it. So in setting up these “interviews” (which I strongly recommend), we wanted to interview Vanessa. There were one or two photographers that were ruled out immediately and a couple that we wanted to think about. Then Vanessa was next. When we spoke with her, our hearts literally melted. She was kind and compassionate, warm and expressive, precise and on point. But the one thing she brought to the table (and it was obvious), was her true passion and love for the art. Yes, art. That’s when we knew that Vanessa was the one who would capture the love that Laura and I have for each other and express it visually like none other.
Vanessa flew out for our engagement shoot and made us feel as comfortable as humanly possible. Her ability to make us relax while putting us in the public spotlight (there were a bunch of people all around us, staring) seemed effortless. When it was time for our BIG day, again, there was Vanessa being a superstar and making us relax and be comfortable on a day where those two things are seldom found. But she did it. A perfect day frozen in time, for all of our friends and family to enjoy!Sent on 12/28/2017
Vanessa and I have photographed several weddings together, and she is incredible to work with! Her photos are absolutely beautiful and she is so creative with her shots. And Vanessa's positive attitude and friendly personality make her a joy to be around on a wedding day. I highly recommend booking her to capture your big day!
Vanessa and her assistants are wonderful to work with and they produce beautiful results to boot! You'll fall in love with her eye and the best way she can capture you!
