Photography became one of Victoria's earliest artistic passions, and has been her professional craft for over a decade after shooting her first wedding at 18.

Inspired by Baroque paintings, cinema, and performing arts, Victoria utilizes a unique blend of hands-on artistic direction behind the camera, an editorial approach, dreamy lighting, and a deep knowledge of artistic principles to produce rare and extraordinary images that glow with warm, rich color and intense, romantic emotion.
