Isn’t it funny how quickly our culture said goodbye to film photography? The 2000s opened the door to a new era of digital ‘point-and-shoot’ cameras. A mere decade later, and the iPhone offered users all the quality of an upmarket DSLR all from their cellphone. When I tell people that I ‘shoot film’, I’m often […]

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.

Using a mix of 35mm, Medium Format, and digital photography Victoria aims to produce the finest quality imagery possible, with a touch of nostalgia.
