Your Vacation Photographer in Dublin: Meet Vanessa

Meet Vanessa

I capture in frames the moments that means the most to you. I like to create very authentic, fresh and modern images, with no forced smiles, showing people their own essence regardless of where I'm working.

Three Things

  1. My heart belongs to two nationalities: Brazilian and Irish (Yes, I know how to samba, and the craic is mighty!)
  2. I love going to the cinema, coffee shops, travelling and hanging out with friends and my beloved fiancé.
  3. Whenever I meet a child, we become friends. :) 

Favourite Place to Shoot in Dublin
My favourite spot is Temple Bar and around the district.

"My favourite memory from Dublin was hanging out with Vanessa after our shoot.  I love her! It felt like we have been friends for a long time.  After our shoot, she took me to all her favourite local spots, and we ended the evening at an awesome traditional Irish pub with authentic live Irish music.  We had drinks while singing along with the band and the crowd.  It was the best way to end my 5-week Europe trip.  Up to now, Vanessa and I are still in touch.  I have made a new friend indeed." - Kathleen

"We had a great time with our photographer Vanessa. She was so sweet and easy to talk to. She provided great insight into Dublin for us and it was fun to get to know her back story and why she moved there. We could have spent a whole afternoon just talking with her. She was prepared with plenty of location ideas and was efficient to ensure that we met our photoshoot goals. We experienced high winds, rain, and sun all throughout our hour together and she was able to ensure that our photos turned out great all throughout those quick changes." - Courtney

"Vanessa was amazing!  She made everyone feel comfortable and at ease about the entire experience, even my hesitant parents.  This was my parents first time in Europe and they have been dreaming about coming to Ireland for 30 years together.  What better way to help celebrate and remember such a special occasion, their 30th wedding anniversary than with timeless family photos together?" - Lindsey

"Vanessa was so  friendly and kind and we had such a great experience with her. We got to see some parts of the Temple Bar district and Trinity College that I'm sure we wouldn't have discovered otherwise." - Sarah

"Having Vanessa capture some of our moments together is more valuable than she could ever know. Even though in some of these pictures my son was describing to me how he was plotting my demise for making him do a public photo shoot, we both saw the end results and were so incredibly happy. Posed cell phone pictures (that usually only one of us is in) or selfies can capture a place or trigger a memory, but these photos captured us and our relationship... they captured a feeling and how special this trip was and having them to look back on means so much." - Erin

"Vanessa was amazing! She made such an effort to make both my son and I feel comfortable and within minutes we felt completely at ease. She even dealt with a few toddler tears in stride. I absolutely love our photos and will cherish them forever." - Taya (read blog post here

"The images Vanessa was able to capture was a highlight to our Ireland family vacation.  She spent so much time with us making sure to capture the perfect setting.  She also paid close attention to every detail, which is evident in our images.  Vanessa became an immediate friend not only in how she guided us during the session, but sharing with us some of her personal favourite places to visit and recommendations of must sees.  We are already planning another trip and will be contacting her again." - Amanda

"Vanessa was amazing to work with and made the experience so pleasant and fun. Vanessa was very knowledgeable, creative and friendly.
