I am Vanessa Lain Torres. I live in Lockhart Texas with my handsome chef husband, Mike, and we have the sweetest son, Walker Lain. I grew up in Austin and discovered photography at a young age from my grandfather, who was a portrait and wedding photographer, too.

After farm life, then Airstream life, you now can find me anywhere between Lockhart and Santa Cruz as I drift back and forth, spending time with dear friends and family and photographing weddings along the way.

My boys and I love to travel and to eat delicious food. We treat every day like it’s a special occasion. I absolutely love coasting between Central Texas and Santa Cruz to be able to photograph love as families are united into one.

Whether you’re getting married in California, Texas, or somewhere else, let’s see how we can work together! Send me a message, give me some deets, let’s talk!
