We had the good fortune of connecting with Vanessa Canaveral and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Vanessa, what do you attribute your success to?
Always remembering my why. My why has always been to create memories for people that they can look back on for generations to come. I imagine my clients 10-20 years from now seating together with family and looking at the photos I captured for them, having conversations about thah specific time in their lives.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Golden Vibes was born out of my love and obsession with golden light. Golden vibes is a look and and a feeling.

It’s taken years to be where I am today, a lot of learning and growing. Being a photographer is all about finding your style and what reflects your artistic mind.

Golden Vibes is all about capturing real moments, real feelings and reliving them all over again every time you look at the photos.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Because of my background in film and television my first go to spot will always be Hollywood Blvd. it’s iconic and a must for everyone. But let’s not forget our beautiful beaches! My absolute favorite beach is little corona in Laguna beach; being able to feel the sand, the breeze, hearing the waves and watching a beautiful sunset it’s a must for a true California experience.

Im a foodie and have a lot of favorite places but there’s only one childhood restaurant I still get excited for and that’s Andre‘s Italian restaurant across The Grove. I love their meat sauce and it just brings back so many memories with friends and family.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to dedicate this to my husband for pushing me and supporting me on this career from day one as well as all my clients, who keep trusting me and referring me to capture memories.
