Average User Rating

I'm a photographer based on the Northside of Chicago who primarily specializes in portrait photography -- though I enjoy photographing landscapes as well as I love to travel often.

My experience with a wide variety of clientele gives me the unique ability to comfortably connect and collaborate with my subjects and it allows me the tools necessary to ensure I have a fun, effective shoot with any client.

Languages Spoken: 
English, Spanish (light)
Area of Town: 
Lincoln Square

About my background:

I've worked as a professional photographer for the past 5+ years, but my interest in photography bloomed in early childhood.

As a kid, I was initially fascinated with polaroid and film cameras, spending countless hours scouring online forums to find camera manuals and answers to my boundless questions.

I still shoot a high volume of film but enjoy shooting digital photography just as much! You can usually find me googling the latest camera tech.

What I love about photography for dating profiles:

My role as a portrait photographer offers me a special opportunity in which I can exercise my love for photography and my passion for connecting with others. I take pride in helping people feel comfortable in front of the camera and, of course, delivering stellar final photos!

Favorite spot to shoot in Chicago:

We'll meet at Oromo Cafe; this coffee shop is at the heart of Lincoln Square, a quaint pocket of the Northside.

Oromo is steps away from the train, a courtyard, a park, and overall situated in a solid area for photos, away from the hustle and bustle of a busier section of the city. We're also close to Oz Park, the waterfront and a bunch of trendy coffee shops.

Vanessa was fantastic and made the whole process extremely easy, my old photos were outdated and poor quality. Vanessa was able to capture the best angles of me and allowed me to showcase my best features. My matches on all dating sites have increased dramatically over the last 72 hours

She was easy to work with. She made the process smooth and less awkward as I was nervous about having my first photoshoot. She also had great inputs in making my photoshoot great.

She was great to work with and made it a fun experience. She did ask for many smiling pictures which worried me due to not having a great smile, but they all turned out great!

Shooting Location

It's too cold in the winter months for outdoor shoots, so we'll rent a beautiful indoor space (like an upscale loft apartment) and do the shoot there. 💪

Exact Location is TBD
