We had our engagement pictures done with Vanessa, and she was AMAZING!

I cannot say enough about her. She was so creative and artistic. And her personality is spunky and fun, so that adds to her professionalism.

The only thing I wish is that there was an option to buy a CD of all the pics. Buying the rights to each one individually gets expensive.

Other than that, Her photos were incredible. The quality was fantastic. She photographed us for 2 hours and we had over 150 pictures to chose from. Needless to say it took us a while to chose, and we still bought a lot of them because we didn't want to decide. Book her for sure!

Our wedding photos are amazing! Vanessa went above and beyond - at one point she even rolled around in the city streets of Baltimore to get some of the shots. Vanessa gave us everything we wanted and more. She was very professional, flexible and reliable. She listened to our ideas, did everything we asked and took it to another level. I highly recommend her to any and every bride that wants truely unique, beautiful, amazing pictures of their wedding that take you right back to each moment and capture every emotion you felt on that special day.
Thank you Vanessa!

Fantastic! Very professional and responsive. Vanessa took the time to figure out what we wanted and she was great. Even our guests and family commented on how good she was. Vanessa was sweet and easy to work with, she made us feel very comfortable, since we are not used to having our pictures taken. We can't wait to see the proofs.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Vanessa! Cannot say enough good things about her and her work! My husband and I had a very simple wedding but the one thing we knew we wanted for sure was an amazing photographer...it was one of the few things we decided to splurge on. And we are so glad we did! She was worth every penny! The pictures she took will last a life time. We got so many compliments...people were saying the pictures looked like they belonged in a magazine. She had us climbing over a fence and taking pictures in a field...they came out gorgeous!! Definitely worth it! No doubt in my mind that she was the best photographer for our wedding! She thought outside the box and captured some of the most beautiful pictures we've ever seen!

During our initial meeting with Vanessa it was apparent to us that she is a professional, a passionate artist and truly loves her job! She voiced many ideas that sounded absolutely wonderful. After viewing her high quality portfolios and discussing different options, we were sold!!!

Vanessa did an outstanding job at our Engagement, Wedding and Trash-the-Dress photo sessions. She not only captured all our special moments but even had a very quick turn around every time! I was able to view pictures within three days of our photo sessions. She also has a great personality! After the wedding, my family even commented on how attentive, professional and friendly she was...Val and I agree! Everyone who has gone to her page and viewed our pictures have given us great feedback. She is the only photographer we will use from here on out for any occassion.

When I started planning our wedding, I wanted three things. 1. A gorgeous gown. 2. A fabulous cake. and 3. a great photographer. So far, Vanessa has been that photographer for me. She's been very flexible about meeting the needs of my future husband and I. I always feel comfortable when I speak with her and she's always prompt to respond when I have a question or concern about the pictures. When I first contacted her, she didn't just respond with an email, she brought a folder of information to my home! (I live very close to her home studio) No other photographer I contacted in my search did anything like that.

When I met with her, I felt like a guest in her home studio, not a customer. She was personable and honest about her work. Her portfolio was lovely and I was hooked from the first look. When I talked about pictures that I would like to be taken, she was just as excited, if not more, than I was about taking them. My mother with with me during our first meeting and when we mentioned that we were going to speak to the manager at our reception venue the next day, Vanessa asked if she could meet us there to get a feel for lighting and what would make for good shots, and we hadn't even booked her yet! When I brought my future husband back for his opinion, she offered to give us a free engagement shooting session with some free prints that very day! Her schedule has been so flexible whenever we have a request. We booked her that afternoon.

During our engagement shoot, we were both totally comfortable, even though neither of us usually like to have our pictures taken. She was open to our ideas, but also gave us direction to make us look our best. The photos came back wonderfully and we had a hard time picking our favorites for our free prints. When the prints came back with some mistakes (not at all Vanessa's fault, it was the printers) she had new, corrected prints to me in less than a week. I am so looking forward to working with her for our wedding pictures, I know they will be great. Whenever I need professional photos in the future, I think I will look to Vanessa first. I've told all my friends and relatives in need of pictures how highly I recommend her.
