DArling, Get READY to

Be a Work of Art

Your happiness is beautiful. It deserves to be captured, shared, printed, framed, and adored.

Thank you for imagining the possibility of creatively collaborating together. 

After your date is set and you sign the contract, I'll send you a guide on how to prepare for your photos. Then, I'll scout the location, suggest resources for inspiration, and kindly share advice on upcoming details. Photo stories will be a mix of the location, traditional portraits, you in action, and small details. I know when to step up to give directions or prompts and when to step back to capture those candid, in between moments. All photography collections are flexible and can be adjusted to include travel, additional time, additional photographers, and other modifications.

“She made everything so easy and they all came out so beautifully and exactly as I'd hoped!”

Our experience with Valarie was wonderful from start to finish. She begins by consulting with you to immediately start envisioning what you hope for in photos and offers location suggestions.

“You can see the cinematic quality in some of her shots carrying through from her videography background.”

Val is dependable, organized, and easy to work with. She is particularly great with natural light photography. You can see the cinematic quality in some of her shots carrying through from her videography background. I highly recommend working with her!


“Had the pleasure of working with Valarie and truly enjoyed every minute of it!”

From the get go, she is very professional and responded to all my messages within a timely manner. She is very detail oriented and gave me a thorough plan prior to our family photo shoot. I really loved all of the pictures we received. What struck me most is her ability to capture the moment. It gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling when I see our pictures. I can't wait to print them to hang around the house. I definitely recommend Val 1000%!!!


“She captured our day so beautifully with close-ups, candids, details of our flowers and venue.”

Val was absolutely wonderful to work with. I swear I thought I would never forget anything about that day, and while all the feelings remain strong, I know some memories have begun to fade, which makes these photos even more special.


“She got us our pictures back less than two months after our wedding and put together gorgeous albums.”

We are so glad we hired Val to be our wedding photographer! She has a great eye and our pictures came out beautifully. We couldn't be happier with them! She is also extremely professional and reliable. We definitely recommend working with her.


“She had a whole timeline prepared for us and made sure all our preferences and concerns were heard.”

We chose Valarie for our city hall wedding photography and she did an absolutely fantastic job! From the get go - she was very quick to respond to our emails, she took the time to understand what we wanted, and created a clear proposal accordingly. She also sent us the sneak peeks and the pictures right on time as she promised. We cannot recommend her enough!


“I have to say that Valarie did wonders for my girlfriend and I during our photography session.”

She helped out on finding good positions to shoot in and was adjusting on the fly. I felt very comfortable from the beginning with my experience on the beach and all the photos came out professionally finished.
