welcome, lovers!

fun-loving wedding and lifestyle photographer based in socal.

Welcome to Vanessa Medina Photography and congratulations on your engagement. What an exciting time with lots of planning and preparing so let’s get started and make your wedding dreams come true. Choosing a photographer can be tough but one thing you have to remember is they will be with you the whole day so it’s important you pick someone who will bring out the best in you and who makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. 

My approach to photography is very fun and playful, I like my couples to have a good time and help relieve any jitters they may have and totally focus on them. I want to capture the energy and essence of your wedding day. I try and create the perfect blend of candid and portrait style photos in order to capture each moment while still making it romantic.

Just your average fun loving wedding/family photographer living in Southern California. I’m pursuing my craft one day at a time all while raising my mini tribe with my awesome husband by my side. 

My style is focused on natural light and warm tones, that golden hour time of day. It’s just sets the mood and makes the photos look dreamy and oh so romantic. 

Besides, spending my time shooting. I’m just your average chick trying to live out her dreams one day at a time. I have a wonderful husband, whom I’ve been dating since high school (16 years and counting) and an amazing son who keeps me on my toes, literally lol :)
