I have been fortunate enough to document weddings for the last 14 years. I graduated with a Journalism degree from the University of Texas at Austin and this love for telling stories led me to wedding photography. I can't imagine doing anything else. I hope to tell your story in a way that is true to who you are as a couple. Every wedding I photograph is different because every couple, family dynamic, and story is unique and that's what makes it so beautiful.
Here is a little about me: Born in Mexico City, I have been an Austinite for 24 years. I love this town and the people who make it so unique. Vibrant East Austin has been my home for 13 years now. My husband and I are the proud owners of J & J Sprits on East 11th, so stop by and say hello.
When I'm not shooting weddings, I love to explore all the wonderful restaurants Austin has to offer. For me, it's about the margaritas, fresh flowers, running, reading, two stepping in my living room, exploring Texas, having lunch with my girls, date night with the old man, and playing canasta with the folks.
BEST Photographer in Austin! Both my sister and I used Vanessa for our wedding and loved her! Not only does she have a creative, one-of-a-kind eye but she REALLY tailors her photography to the personalities of the bride and groom. Since our wedding, many of my friends/family have been asking for Vanessa’s information because they loved our pictures so much. Definitely a MUST vendor in Austin! Because of her solid relationships in the wedding industry, she gave great advice on other wedding vendors and tips on how to help my venue looks its best in our photos. We LOVE her.

Breathtaking - The single word that describes Vanessa’s artistry and creativity as a photographer! She captured such a memorable and special moment in our lives and because of her amazing craft, we have permanent memories that we can some day share with our children and grandchildren! The compliments of the beautiful engagement and wedding photos have been endless! Working with Vanessa was fun, efficient, engaging and SO FUN!!! We have captured fond memories as well as a friendship with Vanessa, as she has “shot” numerous friend’s weddings since ours, and we thank her immensely for producing such wonderful images! Thanks V!!! You are the best! Kristynia & Josh
Vanessa did an AMAZING job photographing my daughter's wedding last weekend. Unlike some photographers who tend to get in the way of the actual wedding, Vanessa was quietly everywhere yet out of sight. She was so easy going, and kept the bride in a relaxed state even when the timeframe was tight. Vanessa's love of all-things-wedding shows in her attention to every detail. We couldn't be more pleased with the photos.
