About Us

Vanessa CastaƱeda is an award-winning photographer based in El Cerrito, CA.

EV Weddings was started in a Brooklyn Brownstown by two best friends, Erin & Vanessa.  EV Weddings has continued to grow, as our professional photographic careers flourished. Since 2009, EV Weddings has proudly photographed weddings across the country of different faiths, and all genders.


Vanessa has been a professional photographer for over 10 years. She has a B.A. degree from UC Berkeley, and an MFA degree in Photography from School of Visual Arts in NYC. In 2010 Erin left the wedding industry to publish a NY Time's Best seller!


Vanessa's background is in commercial photography, still-life and documentary work. Her style is an artistic blend of photojournalism, candids and carefully composed moments. Never imposing, she makes sure to get the best shots while staying out of the way. Vanessa will work with you to create exactly the kind of feeling you want your wedding photos to evoke.
