WOW – just wow! Selecting Vanessa Drake Photography as our photographer was one of the first decisions we made, and definitely one of the best! Working with Vanessa had such an amazing impact on our entire wedding planning experience.
When first doing research, I looked around for local photographers and really had a difficult time finding one that had the style I loved, in the budget we had set. I found Vanessa through online research and was really impressed with her portfolio of wedding photos. I setup an initial call to discuss our wedding vision and budget, and she listened to what I was looking for and helped make a package that was customized to what we wanted and within our budget. I knew it was a match!
But the great experience didn’t stop there, it was only beginning. As one of the first vendors I chose, she helped give great recommendations for other great vendors in the area, and we ended up finding our florist and cake bakery through her as well. She is an expert on the San Fran wedding scene!
We did our engagement photos with Vanessa and it was such a fun experience going around downtown San Fran. The photos we got back were just what we wanted. She knew great spots and times of days to get the perfect shots, and we got so many compliments on them
Once the wedding arrived, Vanessa went completely above and beyond. She truly understood our vision and captured so many amazing shots that we will cherish forever. She stayed with us the entire day (which I imagine was a very long day!) and was always on top of everything. The photos are incredible, and we loved getting to relive the day and the special memories. Jimmy and I have definitely found a photographer and friend that we hope to work with again for many years to come. If you are looking for a photographer, Vanessa is your girl. She will do everything she can to deliver amazing customer experience and outstanding photos.
