behind the



I'm Vanessa, a Texas based photographer specializing in weddings, couples, and boudoir photography. I was born in Brazil but moved to Dallas, Texas in '95 when I was only 5 years old. My passion for photography sparked after I discovered a stack of National Geographic and wedding magazines hiding in our linen closet. I would rip out and categorize my favorite photographs (before Pinterest days) to look back on for inspiration. Photography became a form of escape from the tough teenage years.

I purchased my first camera after I had my oldest daughter, Nicole, and immediately fell in love. After years of working either 9-5 or odd jobs, I knew I wanted to pursue a career that allowed me to have creative freedom and become a stay-at-home mom. I haven't put my camera down since and have loved every moment of this journey.

Hey love!  









I fell in love with my husband, Gabriel, at 14, and married the love of my life at 19. We are quite crazy about our two mini people, Nicole & Charlotte, and our sweet Yorkie, Teddy. The little life we’ve built together is what I cherish the most in this world.

Artistic by nature, I love singing, writing music, and decorating my home. I have a passion for finding and creating beauty in all things. I'm obsessed with The Office, New Girl, Schitt's Creek, and I'm a big foodie. And as cliche as it sounds I love Jesus and coffee, especially in the morning

I'd love to meet you and get to work together. I can't wait to hear your love story, make magic together, and be a part of your day.

- Love Vanessa

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.
