Valerie is an excellent photographer.! She was up to try any ideas that I imagined. She seems very eager to try anything. She is also very sweet and great to work with. I can't wait for her to work her magic on our wedding day!

Valerie was so friendly and she put us all at ease. She made the whole process feel very natural. We got married on her beautiful property and then we had our pictures there as well. It is a day we will never forget.

My fiance Max and I have booked Valerie as our photographer for our upcoming wedding on November 4th. Even though the big day hasn't quite arrived for us yet, I just wanted to say that this woman is absolutely brilliant and unstoppable with a camera. Her unique sense of style and friendly, yet professional approach makes her so incredibly easy to work with. If the images we received from our engagement session are any indication of quality of wedding pictures to come, we couldn't be more elated and blessed to have her as our wedding photographer. Although we are separated by a distance of over 75 miles, Valerie is just an email or phone call away and has always answered any questions I have had in a timely and respectful manner.

We used Valerie for our engagement photo shoot and wedding and she is Amazing! Valerie has style and a good eye for detail. Her pictures are very clear and crisp. She captures the most intimate photos. She is very nice and professional. She works real hard to address your needs. You can also tell she takes time when editing and putting your photo together. Valerie's photo's were so great, we booked her again for our maternity shoot and plan to use her for more future photo shoots.
