My goal is to give you all the info I can before you even inquire so that the process is as easy as possible and so that you both will feel more at peace about your decision!
Once you sign and pay, you're BOOKED! I'll then send over my welcome wedding guide to help with all your planning!!
We'll talk, you'll choose a package, and I'll send over the contract and invoice! Easy peasy!
First step is to fill out my form on my booking page
Once you do that I will respond ASAP during my business hours (Monday-Thursday 9-5)!
When you fill out the booking form here, the first email you get back will be my full packages pricing guide! But for now, photo starts at $2800 for weddings
You’ll get all of your wedding photos back within 2 months! And I ALWAYS send out a sneak peek within a week so you’re not left hanging :)
For weddings you will get at least 50 images per hour of coverage! So for 8 hours of coverage you would get at least 400 back. No maximum amount because we will give you alllll the good ones so it could be like 1,000 photos!
Nope, I don’t! Editing is half the process/ magic that goes into all of the images, and without that huge step the images are only halfway done. I wouldn’t want to send something to you that’s not done!
I will direct you and talk you through it the whole time. I have tons of prompts so that you’ll look like naturals! I photograph people who are camera shy allllllllll the time. Seriously, don't worry about this!! I got you!
I'm based on Oahu so no travel fees for anywhere on the island. Very very cheap flights of like $100 to get to other hawaiian islands! For destinations and mainland, i'll send you a quote when you inquire! I'm really good at finding the cheapest flights and keeping travel costs down!
Just go fill out my booking form here and I will get back to you asap (unless I’m traveling or somewhere without phone service), I’ll send package options and once you choose I’ll send over the contract and you’ll sign and pay a retainer of $800 and you’ll be booked! Easy peasy!
I absolutely love helping my couples help get their day planned! I want this to be a fun and stress-free process for you. I know it can feel overwhelming, but I’m here for you.
LET’S MAKE YOUR DAY IN HAWAII MAGICAL
I highly recommend only booking with local Hawaii photographers, because we know the locations, permitting procedures, all the local laws, and how to do things in a way that respects and honors the islands, and the people who live here.
Hawaii is very strict with permitting, so you’ll want to make sure you get those ASAP on their site here. I can definitely help if you’re having a hard time figuring that out!
Whether you need to find a spot to do a first look, choose your venue if you haven’t already, or you’re eloping and need to find a beach or hike for the ceremony, I have tons of suggestions!
No season is off limits because the weather in Hawaii is amazing all year round! The winter months have just a little more rain than the summer months (which means even more rainbows!), but still lots of sun. The average temperature is 70s-80s in the winter, and 80s-90s in the summer. So no matter when you want to get married, it will be beautiful!
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.
They couldn't be more perfect. She captured the joy of the day so beautifully and we had so much fun with her while she did! She was organized, on time, and professional, yet laid back and easy going! Posing for photos didn't feel like a chore with her, we really enjoyed ourselves! She also worked so well with our videographer which made everything go so smoothly.When looking through our album it seems like every photo is more magical than the last! We got every family and wedding party photo we wanted, every detail of all the decorations we'd spent so much time on, soooo many gorgeous couples shots, and a ton of photos of everyone dancing at the reception! Thank you for capturing this day for us, Valory!
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
We both felt so comfortable and happy taking pictures with you. I literally cried tears of joy when I saw them. We were SO thrilled with the photos, they were genuine and real. I love that they weren’t posed or forced, and that you created moments that captured US. I loved how easy and fun you were. Nothing felt insincere. I couldn’t have been happier with our session!
