about me

      I am Victoria. I am a photographer, a sister, a daughter, a girlfriend, a friend and a dog mom to a furry little guy named Charlie. I picked up a camera when I was 15 and never looked back. Well that’s not true. I did change my major in college (Go Hoosiers!) like 5 times but ultimately landed on photojournalism. I studied abroad in Paris my junior year and fell even more in love with the art of photography as I photographed the city of love. I love, love. I love weddings. I mean, I literally changed my name to Annie when I was 5 years old for a hot sec because I wanted to be Annie Banks from Father of the Bride. I also changed my name to Daisy Rainbow but that’s a different story and not on topic.

      When I am not photographing or editing, you can likely find me in the home decor section of the nearest Target sipping an iced coffee or in a bath reading some kind of “self-help” book (I hate calling them that but thats really what they are. If you haven’t read the Defining Decade or The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, run don’t walk to your nearest Barnes and Nobles… or, you know, use Amazon Prime like I always do).

      Special talents include drinking a bottle of red wine while dancing and DJing for hours without playing the same oldie twice.

      Who are you?

      Like me, you love love. You are are not afraid to get wet and sandy during your shoot. You probably can’t get through cleaning your home without stopping to sift through the box of old photos in your hallway closet. You will be the first and last person on the dance floor, and most likely be barefoot by last call. You believe that love really is like all those cheesy 80s movies. You listen to your music loud and know every word to Celine Dion’s greatest hits (grooms this applies to you too, I know you love Celine). You booked the bar and the DJ/band first because you know how to throw an epic party. If this is you, you are my client (and also probably my soul mate).

      Do you offer prints?

      I SURE do. I love when my clients order prints and albums for their homes! I offer premium quality prints from my professional labs and you get my special client discounts!

      How would you describe your shooting and editing style?

      I love creamy, rich, contrasted images. I love to play with light to make my subject pop whether that means using the sun or an external flash to get the vibe we want. I always shoot for best lighting first. That is the most important.

      Do you have liability insurance?

      Absolutely! Just ask and I will be happy to provide your venue with the certificate.

      How many pictures do we get?

      You can expect around 75 images an hour. Yes, I shoot way more but I have the job of removing all the out of focus, closed eyes, unflattering shots so you don't have to sift through to find the best images!

      Do you travel?

      Yes, I do! if you are outside of Los Angeles County you may be subject to a travel fee, however this is on a case by case basis.

      Do you do other types of photography?

      I do! I love shooting families, newborns, grads, etc. Just ask!

      Do you do Videography?

      Not yet, but I do know many amazing videographers who I love to work with. Would be happy to send you referrals for them and any other vendors you may need for your day!

      Do you shoot digital or film?

      For my clients I shoot digital. I do have a film camera and love to play with it in my free time.
