Voted #1 Wedding Photographer

Vancouver / Lower Mainland

My name is Vanessa Torgerson, and I am the lead photographer at Chasing Sapphires. I am happily married to my husband, Matt. I have two young children, one boy and one girl who are my life. I reside in Langley B.C. and photograph my clients throughout the lower mainland and beyond.

My passion is capturing a point in time that is beautiful, timeless and cherished. I specialize in Wedding Photography and as well as families, children, and newborns captured naturally with genuine emotions and expressions. I am dedicated to my clients.

“Life is best enjoyed when having fun, my goal as a photographer is to make each experience comfortable and personal. As a lifestyles photographer, I will aim to portray real-life situations that are bright, exciting, and enjoyable.”
