Introduction: PLEASE READ BEFORE CHECKING MY AVAILABILITY Thumbtack charges each vendor a significant fee as soon as you contact us. Please contact off Thumbtack. Instagram @vic_schaefer (preferred) I am a photographer based near San Francisco, California but I book weddings and other shoots worldwide. Travel ENCOURAGED. I generally charge $200/hr but message me on other platforms for specific pricing. I photograph all types of events with a focus on wedding and boudoir photography. My most common package is my 8 hour package for $1,600 in California (engagement session included) and $2,000 anywhere else in the states. I would describe my editing style as true to life. I find that this memorializes wedding days the best as it meets how my couples remember the day. I have been photographing weddings for the past 2 years but have been into general photography for the past 6 years. I am always extremely thankful to be in this profession and to create art with my couples. I am very easy going and like to crack jokes and have a good time with everyone. I am mostly drawn to cute old ladies and dogs. What sets me apart from most photographers is my packages are extremely customizable and budget friendly. I generally charge $200/hr and I provide my couples with all unedited images taken on their day. I firmly believe that the photos are yours and would never want to gatekeep your photos. I also let you choose which photos you want edited just in case Aunt Cathy was blinking in one of the family photos. If you have any questions feel free to reach out on my platforms. I am an open book and love working with all of my amazing couples!

Victoria has been phenomenal to say the least. she met my standards, and she went above and beyond, and I couldn’t ask for a better photographer than her. whoever is reading this needs to book her ASAP whether you want to do photos, engagement photos, wedding photos. Thanks again, Vic.

I had a great experience for my engagement shoot. Very responsive, quality pictures and great value! Also was willing to drive to my remote beach location for a sunset shoot that we had to do in the rain! I really appreciated that she sent out the pictures (including edited) within a few days

Beyond pleased with my experience! Booked Vic for an engagement photo shoot and I do not regret it one bit. Great communication and she was so helpful with even giving us location suggestions for what we wanted (as we were new to the area). Great communication, amazing pricing and phenominal photos. Would recommend to anyone looking for a skilled photographer who is laid back and easy to work with
