Veronica began her career in‭ ‬1996‭ ‬after earning her degree in journalism‭ (‬cum laude‭) ‬from Rider University.‭ ‬She worked part-time for‭ ‬The Trentonian for two years before freelancing for some of the area’s top news outlets,‭ ‬such as‭ ‬The Star Ledger,‭ ‬The New York Times,‭ ‬and‭ ‬The Associated Press.‭ ‬In‭ ‬2001,‭ ‬she was a staff photographer for two years at Greater Media Newspapers.‭ ‬During that time,‭ ‬she received‭ ‬19‭ ‬awards for her images‭; ‬the most ever won by a staff photographer with the organization.‭  ‬Her most heralded work was her collection of photographs taken on‭ ‬9/11‭ ‬and at Ground Zero shortly after the attack.‭ ‬Her photos have been exhibited across New Jersey ever since,‭ ‬and are registered with the‭ ‬9/11‭ ‬National Memorial and Museum.‭ ‬They were also featured in her first book,‭ ‬Dialogue‭ ‬3,‭ ‬published in‭ ‬2002.

After the birth of her daughter in‭ ‬2005,‭ ‬Veronica shifted gears and left the news world to begin her portraiture business.‭ ‬It wasn't until‭ ‬2012‭ ‬that she branded her company VeroLuce Photography‭; “‬veroluce‭” ‬is Italian for‭ "‬truth and light.‭"  ‬Known for her soulful portraits,‭ ‬she expanded her business by creating Veroluce Boudoir in‭ ‬2013.‭ ‬That same year,‭ ‬reality TV star Dina Manzo of‭ “‬Real Housewives of New Jersey‭” ‬posed for a boudoir session,‭ ‬establishing Veronica as an expert in photographing women and helping them feel empowered.
