Valerie was incredible! I contacted her super short notice after an unexpected health diagnosis and luckily, she was able to accommodate my engagement shoot! Engagement shoots can me awkward, but Valerie has such professionalism and grace that she makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera! I would definitely use her in the future and would recommend her without a doubt!"

I cannot say enough good things about Val and her team. She is incredibly talented and is so much more than just a wedding photographer. She was like a good comforting friend on our day. The photos we got back are absolutely stunning! She not only made my husband and I look great in our photos, but all of our family and friends too. She captured all of the special, little moments that I wouldn't have remember! She also is so funny and charming! EVERYONE at my wedding commented how amazing she and her staff were! She is passionate and really goes above and beyond for her couples. BOOK HER!!

We wouldn’t have had it any other way! Selecting a photographer and videographer was an incredibly intimidating piece of the planning process. We had several other consultations before meeting Val; the world was saving the best for last! As a same sex couple, it was of most importance that the team we assembled was inclusive and experienced with LGBTQ+ weddings. We first met Val at a wedding expo and that’s where we fell in love! Her energy and easy-going demeaner made you feel comfortable from the get-go. Her focus was not on selling you a big expansive package but instead listening to your vision and creating something custom for our special day. Val crafted a photo/video package that fit our needs and budget perfectly! Part of the package was an engagement session; this was an incredibly valuable opportunity to build our relationship and get to know her style. She made us feel so relaxed and at ease; it felt like we were shotting with an old friend! The shots were stunning and of exceptional quality, but most importantly, she captured US! On our wedding day, Val and her team arrived on time and with a plan! They worked flawlessly with each other and the other vendors, keeping the us right on schedule yet never feeling rushed. Our nerves were through the roof, but Val and team constantly found ways make us laugh and loosen up. They were there to do their job but seemed genuinely happy to be part of our celebration, we felt that 100%! I am so grateful to have selected Val and her team; they shot beautiful, posed portraits but also captured all the life in candid moments. Weddings go by oh so fast, but we are glad we get to relive every memory through Val’s artistry! We are forever grateful!

There are not enough words do describe how amazing Valerie is to work with! Her work is beautiful and her energy is amazing! Coming from someone who is so awkward taking photos, She made us feel comfortable and made us laugh which made the photos come out even better than I could imagine. She did my engagement photos, bridal shower and wedding and I’m so glad we chose her. I’ll keep choosing her for so many more special moments to come! One thousand times recommend her for your big day!!

I met Val in 2021. She was the photographer at my cousins wedding and my whole family LOVED working with her. So it was a no brainer when I was thinking about who should do my maternity shoot.
Val made me feel super comfortable — especially since this was my first time ever taking professional pictures. She was also so great and patient with my 3 year old step son. I enjoyed the whole session!
The pictures came out stunning. Totally the vibe I was going for! So much so that it was hard for me to narrow it down (and I usually don’t consider myself photogenic).
Thank you Val for capturing the most precious time in mine and my family’s life. You’re amazing!
She worked around my timing and needs especially being pregnant where it isn’t easy to rush to get to places but she was very patient with me. So far, I’ve had 2 shoots with her which were: maternity and first 48 hospital pics and I’m so happy and pleased, so much so that I don’t see myself using another photographer at all. I never felt photogenic in pictures but Valerie made sure she got all the right angles.

I cannot express how amazing Valerie is. We did a photo shoot for my 6 month daughter and she made the whole process such a breeze. She is so patient and doesn’t rush the shoot. She is great with babies and communicates with you every step of the way. I highly recommend her! You can’t go wrong. Thank you Valerie for the beautiful memories you captured ❤️

There are two reasons why I will always recommend Valerie to people. 1. Her photos are amazing but 2. There’s something about her energy. There’s people in the world that make you feel at peace just by being in their presence. Valerie is one of them. Which helps out when you’re a bride that’s stressed on her wedding day and nearing a breakdown. Valerie dove right in and kept reassuring me every step of the way. Not to mention, my venue was very pushy in trying to get us out the way. Valerie holds her ground to get her shots. Knowing you have someone in your corner is so important to me. I look at my wedding photos and feel beautiful, I feel the love and I see happiness and Valerie captured all of it. Valerie I don’t think you know how much I appreciate you and the talent that you have. I am eternally grateful for having met you that day at the wedding expo.

There are no real words to describe how amazing Valerie is. We got our engagement photos back last night and I was in tears at how beautiful they were how MANY we got back! Valerie is so kind, funny, and TALENTED! She took her time with us and actually got my fiancé to smile. She also did our friends’ wedding and when we saw their pictures and talked to them about their experience I knew she was our photographer. She is very attentive and responds quickly. Her and her entire team were amazing at our friends wedding. Please whatever you do, Book Valerie for your big days, you will not be disappointed!!

I cannot emphasize enough how incredibly wonderful it was to work with Val on our wedding day. She was professional, knowledgeable, organized, responsive, creative, easy-going, and funny! Our nerves of being on camera from our engagement photos and through our special day were calmed by her chill energy. Comfort with a photographer is a very underrated trait considering you might be spending like 8 hours together; those hours flew by at the hands of Val and her team. She really knows how to capture and create special moments to produce gorgeous photo memories. We highly recommend her for your photography needs.

I am just blown away with how our engagements pictures came out. I was able to contact Valerie about my wedding date and she was willing to move forward on her only weekend off that month, and that stood out the most with how accommodating she was. I expressed my ideas for the engagement shoot and she was able to see my vision and brought it to life beautifully. Her turn around time was precisely how she mentioned and her booking process was simple and straightforward. I can't wait to work together for our wedding day :)
Fast forward --it's been almost 3 months since I got married and if you guys need a push to book Valerie. Hopefully my picture will help that push :)

I don’t even know where to begin. Val did such an incredible job with our wedding photos. She captured every moment perfectly! I’ve been dreaming about what my wedding photos would look like for years and I have to say we couldn’t be more ecstatic about how the photos came out. We would hire her again and again. If you’re looking for a super talented photographer with great energy look no further! You can thank us later. :)
