Professional and amazing photographer
I could not be happier with Venessa’s work. Venessa was the photographer for my friends wedding in which I was part of the wedding party. She did a great job then so I decided to hire her for my own wedding. My husband has a very specific eye for art and photos, so he had very specific style requests for Venessa which she executed on perfectly, but also gave us great instructions and guidance during our photos which was so helpful as we felt awkward never having done any professional shoots before. She has a great eye and got every shot we asked for but also came up with new great shots that we didn’t initially think of. We loved both our engagement photos and the wedding photos.Sent on 10/26/2019
Aside from just the photos themselves, she has wonderful customer service. She had two assistants who did everything from holding my bouquet for me, fixing my train, and carrying around blotting napkins for me (it was very hot and I was sweating through my make up, but you would never know thanks to them!). I also had a huge wedding party and Venessa did a great job keeping everyone under control without being aggressive. She and her team were also “in the background” but in command, and got photos from every angle. She was also incredibly timely for turning photos around. I asked for a few photos a few weeks after the wedding so that I could order thank you cards, and she actually gave me ALL my photos as a surprise!
Overall loved working with her and her team, and will probably hire her again the first chance I get!

Fun and professional!
Venessa is a pro! I knew from when we first talked on the phone we were going to work well together. She responded to emails quickly and was super flexible with times and locations for our engagement pictures. She helped with my timeline and offered her suggestions which made a big difference in our day running smoothly. My husband and i loved how she handled our immature wedding party and got the photos done in a fun way, but in a timely manner. She knew exactly how to pose everyone every single time. Whenever i needed a picture taken with friends at our wedding she was always within eye sight. What a relief! I highly recommend her to anyone!Sent on 09/15/2019

Venessa is truly amazing, I cannot recommend her highly enough. She worked seamlessly with our other vendors to make sure that I didn't have to worry about any logistics or about timeline - she made sure there was enough time for any and all photos we wanted. She was seemingly inexhaustible and maintained such a positive high level of energy all day, always keeping an eye open for any photo opportunities or unexpected photo shots. Unlike many photographers, she made sure to include lots of photos of friends and family - not just of us. That did not come at the expense of having beautiful couple shots though - we have so many wonderful photos of the two of us, that it is hard to pick! This is in stark contrast to many of my friends who only ended up with one or two couple photos that they liked. We got a huge variety - not just kissing shots or standard portraits. The quality of the photos is so high, and we have gotten so many compliments from everyone we've shown them to. In addition, Venessa is bilingual (English and Spanish), which was such a major asset for us (my husband and his family are Mexican and Spanish) and helped so much with the photo taking. Finally, we got access to ALL the digital photos she took, and we can download them all, which is just amazing. We didn't have to choose a subset, and we could freely share with friends and family. I cannot speak highly enough of Venessa, she documented every moment of our day with beautiful, high-quality photos.Sent on 09/18/2019
