Victoria has been our go-to photographer at 826 Seattle for years. She is a dream to work with and knows how to get the best shots, no matter the setting. She has taken brilliant photos at our fundraising events, as well as beautiful portraits of our students for our publications and event/PR collateral. The photos that Victoria has taken have really captured the magic of 826 Seattle, and have been instrumental in our fundraising efforts. We are grateful to call Victoria a member of the 826 Seattle family. Book her! You won't regret it!

Victoria will restore your faith that some people are phenomenal at their jobs, because she is one such person. Victoria built my site on a very tight deadline and nailed it, first try.

I have worked under and with Victoria VanBruinisse at a very successful website and for a superbly talented client she brought to me at Big Freak. She is a power-house of networking genius, creative vision, revelatory taste, and has a supreme attention to detail. She's a super-wise maven about how to manage, promote, and curate staffs, ideas, releases, and happenings. I trust her wholeheartedly from my experience working with her, have deep faith in her skills and expertise, and look forward to being a return customer and future collaborator for anything she has a hand in.

As my manager, Victoria made it possible for me to focus on the art I wanted to make while feeling confident all my bases were covered. She has an ability to hear the voice YOU have and the wherewithal to know how to bring it out of you. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

Having you as a part of our wedding was great -- not just because we have the most gorgeous photos we ever could have dreamed of, but more importantly, because we gained a lifelong, amazing friend. Thank you from the bottom of our everything for all your incredible work, patience, and constant reassurance that all would be okay, [and] for making our wedding day so fun, relaxing and special! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect person to capture our most precious moments... We both adore you!

Victoria is an amazing, creative and professional photographer. She made me feel 100% comfortable during my portrait session and was very open to exchanging ideas on the fly. Highly recommended!
