Behind the lens

My name is Vanessa and I’m an artist who is inspired by beautiful and authentic stories. As a film & digital photographer I use natural light to capture your day in a soft, romantic and elegant way. Driven by your genuine emotions and beautiful moments, it allows me to focus on you! Every photo we create becomes a piece of history - your legacy - to cherish, to share, to relive again and again.

As a woman known for her vibrant personality, a love for unicorns, and adventurous heart, I love serving the world by spreading joy and love to everyone I meet. I enjoy encouraging others to create their own happiness, and is a believer of living in the moment, handwritten notes, and that no morning is complete without coffee!

When I’m not capturing beautiful stories, you can find this extroverted introvert at home with a book, planning for our next destination, spending time with family and friends or enjoying life with my dashing husband -- and second photographer -- Jorge.

It's crazy to wrap my head around the fact that I've been with my husband, Jorge, since we were 16 years old! We met one Sunday at church, and since then, we've grown together in so many ways. How he survives my loud and vibrant personality? No one knows! But every day spent together is a blessing. I honestly could not imagine spending forever with anyone else.

In life, you can have all the material items in the world but what’s left at the end of our lives are the experiences we had and whom we shared it with. Living in the moment is big for me -- and it’s what originally inspired me to document my life. I want to see the world, jump out of airplanes (which I did), snowboard on the mountains of Colorado, watch the sunset in Tuscany, and make new friends!

Our Great Pyrenees, Australian Cattle dog is a cuddly fur beast whose energy levels are off the walls! And he does not know the meaning of a nap! The 85 lbs beast is called, Logan. Although this pup can drive us nuts, he's one of the best additions to our family... for the most part, just hide your socks!

Fact: I love purses, shoes & collecting anything with unicorns. My husband jokes that we would lose our apartment before I sold my purses, and well, he’s right! We all have that one thing… I just think he’s jealous that my shoes have more closet space than his clothes. As for the unicorns, maybe it's the dreamer in me!
