Why waste time taking photos at your next event when you can trust Victoria Lanza Photography to handle it for you? Enjoy the night you created, focus on the details, and let us take over photo responsibilities. We look forward to helping you remember the night for the rest of your life.


Planning your Session

The first step to booking your special event session is to visit my Contact Page and send me an inquire about your session. Once you send me a quick message, we will set up a free phone consultation to discuss in detail about your photography session. During the consultation, we will go over what your overall vision is, what matters most to you and your family, and how I can help to accomplish those goals and make your dream into a reality. I have captured numerous events. I have captured events with twenty (20) guest to two-hundred (200) guest. You will be in excellent hands.


During the consultation, we will discuss your event in detail. I will ask about your timeline of the event. For large events, I always suggest I arrive about 45 to 60 minutes before the guest arrive. This is so I can take pictures of the room in its perfect form (before it gets messy), taking pictures of you getting your hair and make up done, and little details of your event that you put a lot of effort and time in. I want to capture those moments for you.

During the event, I will move around the room constantly and capture the energy of the event. I like to capture genuine, candid moments that are beautiful and will make you smile for years to come. Most importantly, I capture those special times that can not be replicated. For example, during gender reveal parties and the reaction of mom and dad. Those are the times you are glad you hired a professional photographer to capture your party.

After your special event session, please allow up to three weeks to deliver your gallery. Your online gallery will consist of all the best images from your session.
