I go the extra mile to make sure every detail of your day is covered and beautifully captured! I love to focus on candids and photos that really capture the way your day felt. The moments at the first look, the wind that catches your veil, and the laughter between the two of you and all of your family and friends that came to celebrate you. Whether that’s on a cliff in a place like Yosemite National Park or in your grandma’s backyard, I’m there for it.

Valory met me and my husband on probably the most hectic day of our lives. I am a very reserved person, and I’m frankly camera shy, so an entire day spent in front of people and cameras had me feeling like a deer in headlights. But Valory was so good at directing us and giving us little things to do to make us feel more comfortable and to get our minds off of being in front of the camera. She was so sweet, flexible, and understanding, and it shows through her work. Our photos are truly spectacular and we couldn’t be happier with them.

Valory is amazing and so much fun to work with!! She really spent time on the drive to the location getting to know us and listening to all our stories. I believe it’s important for your photographer to be familiar with you so that they can better capture the truest essence of who you and your partner are together. And that’s exactly what she did. We’ve worked with Valory twice now and both times she’s delivered incredible work! We felt comfortable during the whole experience and knew we could trust her to not only lead us into great shots - but also to catch all the in-between moments that are equally important! Our second shoot with her was actually a re-do if our wedding photos. And oh man! When I got the photos back I was over the moon! Every shot was gold. The photos were literally a dream come true. The lighting and editing was impeccable and she delivered them in a timely fashion.

Valory is beyond talented! My (now) husband and I found her and once we saw her photos we never looked back. We both feel so awkward having our picture taken so having someone like Valory who made us feel so comfortable was important. She really lightened the mood and created a fun environment for us for our engagement shoot. As soon as we received our photos, we were amazed and knew we made the right choice for our wedding photographer. She’s ridiculously talented, creative and kind. We’ve only received our sneak peek so far from our wedding and we were already blown away. If you’re thinking about booking her.. do it! You won’t regret it.
