hey! I'm valerie. I spend most of my weekends as a creative virginia wedding photographer, but i also shoot a ton of documentary lifestyle portraits and spend the week days photographing small-business marketing content for clients throughout virginia and dc. i believe in honest portraiture... which basically means capturing you, your family, or your business in ways that legitimately feel real. i always want people to feel like they know you when they see an image. forget all the bullshit. forget the stereotypes of what it's supposed to be. let's just make real images with real smiles in real situations in real places that matter.

i've spent a lot of time pouring information into this website from the typical investment to general get to know me facts. feel free to read over anything and everything and reach out with any questions at all! my goal is for you to be as comfortable with me and this process as possible, so we can get the most genuine, real images of you. let's get this party started!

virginia is for lovers. AND IT'S WHERE I CALL HOME but
i'D actually SAY I'M MORE OF A MID-ATLANTIC PHOTOGRAPHER IF THAT WAS any sort of official TITLE.

WHILE i LIVE IN VIRGINIA BEACH (BEERS ON THE BEACH ALL SUMMER AND HARDLY ANY SNOW... YES PLEASE)... I ACTUALLY CONSIDER ALL OF VIRGINIA, RVA AND THE DC AREA MY HOME COVERAGE AREA. I LOVE TRAVELING AND I LOVE FINDING CLIENTS WHO LOVE WHAT I DO... So, TO MAKE THINGS EASY FOR EVERYONE, I DON'T charge ANY TRAVEL FEES FOR ANYWHERE WITHIN 250 MILES OF MY HOUSE.
i CONSIDER MYSELF A RICHMOND WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER AND A DC MARKETING PHOTOGRAPHER JUST AS MUCH AS A HAMPTON ROADS PHOTOGRAPHER.

 

GETTING MARRIED OUTSIDE OF MY HOME COVERAGE AREA?

i built this business on the idea of traveling for weddings. (shoot me an email and help me fill in my map!) i'VE MADE simple, ALL-INCLUSIVE PACKAGES for weddings outside of my home coverage area THAT INCLUDE FLAT-RATE TRAVEL FEES FOR ALL OF THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES.
