A New Blog

It's time! I've finally upgraded my blog and will no longer be adding new content to this blog. I will still keep this blog as it documents my whole journey and progress in becoming a wedding photographer. But please do check out my NEW BLOG!

New blog address: www.vanessavothblog.com

Thanks to each and every one of you that have frequented my blog and have read my posts and commented and shared and encouraged! You've all been a huge part of this process!


Ryoko & Brendan's Sneak Peek

It's late and I'm tired so my mind isn't too sharp right now to write anything fancy about last night's engagement session! I'll save it for the final blog post when I finish all the images. But I had such a great time with this couple and look forward to their wedding next May!

Here are a few images from their session...


JUDY & FORREST /engaged

As you might remember from Judy and Forrest's Sneak Peek, Judy is our Real Estate Agent. We met through a mutual friend and I'm so glad we did! She was such a help to us when we bought our first home, and now again when we bought our new place.

Judy and Forrest got engaged on Christmas Day and I was thrilled when she asked me to do their engagement photos! I met them outside their New West home and we set off down the boardwalk and snapped pictures along the way. So beautiful! The couple, the evening, the lighting, the ring. Oh goodness gracious me. Her ring. It's ah-mazing. It's beyond amazing. It's gorgeously lovely. Wow. One of the perks to being a wedding photographer, and a diamond ring lover, is that I get to see so many different and unique and gorgeous engagement rings! And, yes, I even try them on. It's the safest way to transport them when I'm doing ring shots, instead of holding it loose in my hand! ;) Anyway, beware all you diamond-loving ladies reading this. You will drool. You will ogle. You will covet.

Anyway, thanks for asking me to take these photos for you guys! I had a blast! Hope you enjoy them!

Tomorrow I'll have a Sneak Peek from tonight's gorgeous engagement session at Steveston!!

Jen and Josh's Engagement Sneak Peek

I had so much fun with Jen and Josh tonight! They were such a blast to photograph, and were up for some fun shots, and weren't set back by the lady threatening to call the cops on us for taking pictures on the sidewalk outside of her house! haha. It was a memorable engagement session to say the least!

These two lovebirds are fabulous! I can't wait for their wedding in October! Enjoy these few images from tonight's session!

FEATURED IN /Wedding Obsession

Emily and Brendan's wedding was featured on Wedding Obsession last week!


Meagan and Josiah's Wedding Sneak Peek

Yesterday I had the great privilege and honour to photograph Meagan and Josiah's wedding. It was an amazing day- beautiful sunny weather, a couple so in love and ready to become husband and wife, a beautiful view, and family and friends enjoying a picnic lunch on the lawn. Gorgeous. The amount of detail in this wedding was crazy! I can't wait to show you the final images, but for now you can look at these images and anticipate the rest yet to come!

Congratulations Meagan and Josiah! Hope you have an awesome time at your secret honeymoon destination! Can't wait to find out where you went! Thanks again for having me be part of your day.
