Hi, I am Vanessa Lobao.
My name is Vanessa Lee Lobao, and I have been professionally photographing Weddings, Boudoir and Portraits for over 11 years. I am based out of Summerland, British Columbia but I love to travel! I have a diploma in Digital Photography which I received from a private post-secondary institute. I love photographing people and capturing true, raw emotions. I love bringing an edgy, dramatic vibe of energy to my work - I believe that perfectly encapsulates my work and the quality I put out there.
I have recently opened a brand new private studio, 'Studio Aphrodite', - which has been a dream of mine for many years. This is the most gorgeous space for boudoir or portraits and so many other fun things. Check out our 'Studio Aphrodite' link at the top <3
When I don't have a camera in hand, you can find me drinking coffee at home with my fiance, Ben and our dog George (as pictured) and cat Noodle. If we aren't at home we are hiking all over the Okanagan Valley looking for hidden gem locations; which I often find! I frequently travel and the top cities I have photographed in are: Cheltenham, London, Seville and Paris.
I am very laid back, I also love telling jokes. So not only do you get a photographer, you may even get a comedy routine.
I love my job and everyone that it has led me to! I could gush for hours, but I don't want to keep you!
I look forward to meeting you!
