My fiance and I presented a challenge from the get-go as we're both uncomfortable in front of a camera and planning a wedding out-of-state. Vanessa gave us the best pricing options for our budget and exceeded out expectations with the results! The photos are so beautiful and she captured all the important things, taking the time to ensure she made a checklist of the shots I wanted and organizing the group portraits ahead of time. The bridal party ran late getting ready and stress ensued, especially for the MOB. But Vanessa was calming and kept us on track despite all the craziness and some loud personalities. She truly was a fly on the wall, never interfering with our day, yet helped ground me and my new husband throughout the evening. Thank you, Vanessa, for all of your hard work! We're going to cherish these photographs forever.

Vanessa Lain Photography! I mean wow! We are so grateful that we chose her as our wedding photographer. We were married in the Santa Cruz mountains and she blew us away. The light was always changing, because of clouds and trees, yet she knew exactly what to do and when. She directed us and made the entire process seamless. When it was time for the reception she blended in with our guests, we didn’t even know she was there! We have the BEST wedding photos with fun shots of everyone and couldn’t be more pleased. Our wedding day went by fast, so we are glad we went with such an amazing and professional photographer. We love the memories captured by her. Thank you Vanessa!

Vanessa was AMAZING! From the first time talking on the phone, I could tell that she was incredibly professional, detail-oriented, responsive, talented, and easy-going. She makes you feel like you're the only wedding she has all season and always responded to quickly to any questions that came up. During the actual wedding day, she was so organized and on top of every little detail we had asked for beforehand yet brought this calm energy at the same time, which was so important to us during the chaotic day! The end results were AMAZING and we honestly didn't think it was possible for the pictures to turn out so well. She captured such beautiful, funny, and emotional candid shots that helped us relive our special day. Thank you for everything Vanessa, 100% recommend to any future bride/groom!
