I have worked with Vanessa for over five years now. I own a boutique and she started as a photographer and stylist for my personal T-shirt line. That grew into a product photographer, styled shoots, merchandising my store and more. I have loved working with Vanessa, she has a creative eye that is hard to find. She knows what goes well together in a photo-shoot and in my store setting as well. Most importantly Vanessa is reliable and truly cares about her work and her clients.

Vanessa is extremely talented. She has been my go to photographer every since I met her years ago. I started off having her shoot my family photos, and then worked with her to help build my modeling portfolio. What I love most about Vanessa is that she makes sure that your vision comes to life at time of booking. She is unlike any other photographer I have worked with. Vanessa has always helped me with concepts and gives great direction. Nobody captures my moments like she does.

Vanessa is an amazing photographer. I have had the pleasure of working with her for several years and honestly couldn’t have started my fashion blog without her great eye. She understands color, shadowing, body imaging and capturing the essence of the moment. Book her.

Vanessa has been amazing to work with! Whenever I’m ready to shoot and I have no idea of the place, all I have to do is send her pictures of my outfits and her response is always “I know the perfect place”. She always captures the exact look I’m trying to go for. I’ve worked with her for years and there is not one shoot that I’ve done with her that I don’t love! She just keeps getting better! I can’t wait to see all the amazing things she will do!

Vanessa is thee definition of a professional. Her work speaks for itself. She’s a photographer that cares about every detail and satisfying your wants and needs. Vanessa is great with photographing kids! She has photographed a maternity session, newborn session, and family pictures for me. All of the shoots were perfect and the pictures came out beautiful. I definitely recommend Vanessa for anything photography related.

My professional experience with Vanessa has been nothing short of amazing. As a small business owner you have to have a good branding aesthetic and eye catching graphics. Marketing is key and very difficult to do on your own. With the help of Vanessa, my company has a new fresh look and refined aesthetic that can be compared to top name clothing brands. I couldn’t be happier and I would recommend anyone that wants the best to go with the best. Vanessa Soto.

I was in the beginning of starting my business Noniboutique and I wanted to make sure everything was in place. Vanessaphotography was a great fit for the concept I was going for. She made my vision come to life, I am forever thankful and will be using her again.
