The Engagement Session Experience


Hi! I am Vanessa, call me Vee, a San Francisco Bay Area creative and photographer specializing in lifestyle wedding photography & videography.  When I am not behind the camera you can find me chasing around my two littles! I love adventure and am willing to travel, whereever that takes me. 


Through out my 5 years as a professional photographer I have have heard from brides who after their engagement session realized they were not a good fit with their photographer.  I've always felt so bad for these couples because photography is not something you want to be unhappy with on your wedding day! 

That's when I decided to create a system that allows us to work together before having to make that big decision of booking your photographer.  

"She is professional and sweet. She got us our photographs back very quickly. All of the photos are wonderful and Vee captured all the best memories of the day. My bridal party was very impressed with her as well during photos. We will recommend her to everyone!"

The Process

I am a natural, candid photographer (like a paparazzi, without the big ugly flash and way less pushy).  I focus on documenting YOU.  Who you are, what you enjoy together, the little quirks that make your love strong.  The very first step to planning your engagement experience is to schedule a phone call to get to know you.  This is a 15 minute meet & greet to learn more about what your visions are for your photographs. 

After we chat on the phone we will follow up with you in an email and send over what's included in the engagement session as well as our available dates for the shoot.  You will also receive a complimentary style guide that will walk you through choosing your outfits! 

During the session I will make work to make you feel as laid back and comfortable as possible. Think of it as, the two of you hanging out together, laughing,  playing, and loving on each other. And I am there in the background, documenting it all. 

After the session we will set up an online web chat meeting to go over your images, pick out your free goodies, as well as answer any of your questions you have about our wedding packages.  You will be offered the opportunity to purchase any additional products or digitals from your session if you'd like. When you choose me for your wedding, the entire engagement session is gifted to you!
