“Val is a fantastic photographer who really cares about what she is doing! I highly recommend her for family, lifestyle and newborn photos. She took photos of my son as a newborn which I will always cherish.”


I started off my photography journey hiking to mountain tops and traveling with a point and shoot camera in tow. I would always notice the striking ways light hit people’s faces, buildings, or how it shone through the leaves of a tree. So I took photos of it all! Years later, my passion became a career, and I can safely say that no professional path other than being a photographer could bring me this much joy.

I follow couples and families through life, capturing their most important memories.
