First off, my name is Valory Evalyn and I am a traveling wedding, elopement + couples photographer, based out of Redding, California! Just a few things that make me come alive are adventure, mountains, the ocean, chipotle, wildflowers, matcha tea, and memes! Oh, and I have definitely seen the show Friends like 5 time through, and I can never remember how to spell the word definitely.
And since you’re here on my photography website, you probably want to know about that. Well, I’ve been taking photos since I was about 5. I would carry around my little polaroid and disposable cameras EVERYWHERE taking pictures of EVERYTHING. They weren’t any good of course, haha!
When I was 16 I got my first dslr camera and immediately dove in, learning everything I could. And now, years later I am doing what a love full time. Capturing all the big feelings!
When you hire me as your photographer, you’re not just hiring me to show up and take some photos. I love getting all those classic wedding day shots, BUT I’m also a total ninja when it comes to getting all those candids! I’m constantly scanning for all those raw + hilarious moments that will tell the WHOLE story of your day. Nothing makes me happier than capturing all those big feelings. The ones that you will one day pull out and show your kids, grandkids, and even great grandkids! My dream is to partner with you and tell the story of your first big adventure together.
