We hired Vanessa to shoot our wedding, and engagement photos as well. We'd had some frustrating experiences with photographers before, so we approached finding a wedding photographer with a great deal of caution. Vanessa was excellent from the first time that we spoke with her until the very end when she delivered all of our photos. She took the time to answer all of our questions, make sure that we were comfortable, and clearly understood what we were looking for. On the day of the wedding itself, she did an excellent job of capturing lots of great candid moments where we didn't even realize that someone was watching. These turned out to be some of our favorite photos. We had the usual friends and family that got in the way a bit as Vanessa was trying to take portraits, but she did a great job of politely working around them and making sure that everyone was looking in the right direction when they needed to be. We'd recommend her to anyone.

My fiancé and I interviewed a couple other photographers for our wedding but decided to go with Vanessa. We started with engagement photos to get to know each other before our wedding, and we couldn't be happier working with her. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and just be ourselves. She has so much positive energy and was willing to meet our needs and wants. The high resolution images were given to us within a week, and they turned out great. We can't wait until our wedding and we are looking forward to working with her again. I highly recommend Vanessa as your photographer to capture your special moments.

Vanessa was so great to work with! She made my fiancé and I feel really comfortable, and the pictures turned out amazing! She really has a good eye for detail and has a very romantic feel to her work. I was more than impressed with her and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for gorgeous pictures.

We are so thrilled we were able to book Vanessa to shoot our wedding. When we began looking at websites we noticed right away that her website and portfolio stood out leagues above the other communications we had received. From the get go, Vanessa was professional, efficient, and very kind. She made the whole business process extremely easy with multiple ways to pay and a straightforward contract. As for the creative process, she was brilliant in really trying to understand exactly what we wanted and made sure through our meeting beforehand, Pinterest boards, and emails that she had a clear idea of what we wanted and expected. The day of she gave great direction and kept our large family on track to get all the pictures we wanted done in an efficient, creative, non awkward way. I am normally one to hide from cameras and was nervous the whole element of photographers would make me really anxious, but Vanessa made me feel extremely comfortable the whole day. As for the pictures, they are stunning. She provided excellent communication post wedding and got our pictures back to us extremely quickly. I’ve had friends wait months to see their pictures and we had ours within a couple weeks. They are absolutely perfect, exactly what we wanted and more. We, with our family, will treasure the pictures forever. We could not recommend Vanessa Weber Photography more!

Vanessa photographed our outdoor Malibu wedding this September. She was an absolute joy to work with up to, and throughout our wedding day. I wanted a very 'documentary style' unposed wedding album. She studied all of the pictures I sent her, and did exactly what I always hoped my wedding photos would look like! Beautiful, natural, 'in the moment' - lots of black and whites - she also managed to work out a very tricky lighting situation that resulted in very flattering pictures. I honestly don't think we posed for more than five shots- yet, somehow she captured the mood and events of my entire day. Beyond that, she's very nice, and brought a lovely assistant. All my pictures were also sent to me within just a few weeks after our date. She's amazing!

Vanessa did our engagement photos and we had the most wonderful time with her!!!! She went to several different locations for us because we had two different visions for the engagement session... She was flexible and made us feel relaxed! She made us laugh too! Some of my favorite photos are ones of us laughing! She brought real life into our photos and captured the abundant joy me and my fiancé are experiencing and now we have those memories forever! I am so thankful and highly recommend her to anyone.

Vanessa was amazing! She was so sweet and professional, and made everyone feel so comfortable. I felt like she took the time to get to know us. It was like having a friend the day of our wedding. Not to mention the pictures were BEAUTIFUL! She really captured the day and the moments we were hoping she would. I am so SO SO happy we found Vanessa, and that we decided to work with her. I have so many more amazing things I could say- but the rest of the reviewers said it all for me! Thank you Vanessa for being a part of our day and for being flexible, professional, fun, prompt, not cheesy or all up in our business, and for truly seeing the important moments and capturing them. It couldn't have been a better experience.

She did a great job for our wedding. She's a very talented lady with a great eye for photography. We felt very comfortable with her and will never regret having a true professional give us memories that cannot be replaced. She's a true gem! I wouldn't have picked anyone else for my photographer, and will always refer her out to family and friends.

Vanessa beautifully captured the joy & intimacy of our wedding party of 12. She is a true professional with a first class approach from her- phone calls, emails, consultation, to wedding event & follow up. It was our pleasure to have worked with Vanessa who sincerely considered all our special requests when customizing our treasured photo memories.
