ANNIVERSARIES 

Sweethearts 

Welcome!

MOST DAYS YOU CAN FIND ME OBSESSING OVER MY NEW DAUGHTER’S TOES WHILE DRINKING MY 3RD CUP OF COFFEE. I’M KNOWN FOR BEING THE GOOFY GIRL WHO DOESN’T TAKE HERSELF TOO SERIOUSLY. I’M OBSESSED WITH CHEESE, AND EVERY DESSERT IS BETTER WITH CHOCOLATE. I BELIEVE THAT ROAD TRIPS ARE GOOD FOR THE SOUL, LAUGHTER IS TRULY THE BEST MEDICINE, AND YOU CAN NEVER GIVE TOO MANY KISSES.

I’M A WIFE OF 6 YEARS TO MY BEST FRIEND, NEW MOTHER TO OUR DAUGHTER PENELEPE, lover of mexican food, AND STORYTELLER. FROM A CHILDHOOD HOBBY TO THE LOVE I HAVE TODAY, capturing and documenting LOVE STORIES IS WHAT DRIVES MY SOUL.

 





I’D LOVE TO MEET YOU AND CHAT ABOUT CAPTURING the PRECIOUS MOMENTS, which YOU AND YOUR FAMILY CAN CHERISH FOR GENERATIONS.

 




want to know more? 

I desire to document your love story in a
- romantic, timeless, and -authentic way.

I’m almost done with Drop Dead Diva :) True Blood on HBO is what I’m currently streaming (again!). Some of my favorite shows are The Office, Friends, Parks and Rec, and South Park.

I would love for you to be our photographer!  How do I book with you? 

What happens if the weather is bad on our scheduled session date? 

Yes! I believe your engagement session is a very important part our relationship. The engagement session helps prepare you two to be in front of my camera on your wedding day, and to get you acquainted with how I work. 

I do offer a second photographer with certain wedding collections. 

I love delivering my client’s files quickly
and easily via a private online gallery. You will have the ability to download and print your digital images. 

For an 8 hour wedding day, you can expect around 800-900 digital images in your online gallery. For sessions, you can expect around 30-50 images. 

Yes! I love exploring new places! I also travel to my home city of Austin, TX frequently, and would love to document your love story in my home state!

No problem at all! We simply reschedule! I always keep a few days available in the month in case of inclement weather. 

A signed agreement and 20% of the rate is due at booking to hold your date. All of this can be completed conveniently online.

At this time I focus exclusively on weddings, engagements, anniversary, and sweetheart sessions. If you’re looking for an amazing newborn photographer, feel free to let me know and I’ll send a few recommendations your way. You may also sign up for the newsletter for special announcements on family mini sessions that I offer during Spring + Fall!

We love to view these photos and relive this incredible day. With Vanessa's incredible photography and depth of skill her images really come to live with emotion, excitement, and joy.

"We've hired Vanessa too many times that she is already our official family photographer! The first time we met, we were already impressed with her humbleness and passion in photography. For me, a good photographer makes you feel comfortable and less awkward during poses. And I believe Vanessa is one. I love her lighting and her style in photography. She is more than just a photographer for us, she is a good friend as well. You'll never be disappointed with this one!" - Karen 

"Vanessa is absolutely amazing!! She Genuinely loves what she does and with the utmost quality and professionalism!! We truly have found a photographer for all of our life's memories! :)" - Matthew
