Krystle and Alex arrived to the Griffith Observatory a bit nervous; but as we hiked further down the dirt road that lead to a spectacular view of the city, I could almost feel that nervousness drift away. We got to know one another, and as they shared a bit about themselves and their lives, they […]

Julie and Bruno’s beautiful wedding was at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, Ca. and if you have been following my work, you know I’m a sucker for “fairytale” type weddings… so, needless to say, their Woodland Wonderland Inspired wedding was right up my alley! I didn’t get a chance to meet the duo before their wedding […]

There are a million reasons why I’ll never forget Cece and Dylan’s wedding day and why I will always cherish being their wedding photographer. Cece and Dylan are two of the kindest people I have met, but what’s more is that they are also funny, easy-going, sweet and oh-so-loving not just to each other but […]

This will forever be my favorite St. Patty’s celebration!! I’m so so happy my dear Shirley connected with me for her wedding day. I cannot be more thankful for her and Kaya’s kindness, and trust in us as their photographers. Their wedding day was full of amazing details – from Kaya’s heirloom cufflinks – to […]

This Camarillo Ranch House wedding was our first wedding of the year!! I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day for these two. When we first met, Andrew and Jennifer told me their proposal story, and I could not stop giggling! Let’s just say – she said something that out of context would be scary […]

I am simply smitten by these two. They were referred to me by a dear friend and all I can say is – THANK YOU! I feel incredibly blessed to have met Fang and Daniel and to be documenting their wedding later this year. They are two of the nicest people I have ever met […]

I did something pretty darn brave for an introvert photographer – I attended a workshop. Not knowing what to expect, all I could think as I drove from the San Fernando Valley to beautiful Santa Barbara was,  “Vanessa, you love photography more than your fears, more than your social awkwardness.” So, I walked into the […]

** Featured on The Perfect Palette! ** I first met these two during their engagement session at Vasquez Rocks, they brought their fur baby Chet to their session and all I kept thinking was – wow, this family is everything!! Their joy was infectious – and that same joy was present on their wedding day. […]

Emily reached out to me two weeks before her wedding date, yes, ya’ll – two weeks! Her photographer had an emergency and was no longer available. Guys, this can happen to anyone – from a vendor stand point, I hoped the photographer was ok, and from a previous bride stand point, I felt for her! […]
