Valentina did both our engagement and wedding photos and we’d hire her again in a heart beat! She does whatever it takes (even taking on 100+ degree summer heat from our wedding day) to get authentic and beautiful photos. Thank you, Valentina for capturing our wedding so beautifully!

about photographer


HEY, beautiful people! I’M VALENTINA:


A destination wedding photographer based in Dallas, Texas, reporting for duty worldwide!


 

Hopefully, this is where our love story begins...

 

But before I tell you about…

📸 My 10 years of experience photographing love-filled couples and families

⛰️ The literal mountains I’ve climbed to get THE shot

😍 And my process for guaranteeing pictures you’ll be proud to show off for the rest of your life…


Let’s bust a few myths likely freaking you out right now:


1.) Effortless, candid pictures just happen (or don’t)

2.) Only models can look natural (not to mention drop-dead gorgeous!) in photos


That is just sooooo not true! And I’ve got the portfolio to prove it.

Valentina cares about her craft and the couples she photographs. From the engagement pictures to the day of the wedding, she went above and beyond to ensure she captured moments that we will treasure forever. I wouldn't consider myself to be comfortable in front of a camera, but you wouldn't guess that looking through the pictures. She took the guess work out of posing and helped coach us into pictures that look great! Her services were certainly worth the investment and she was a joy to work with. I will definitely reach out to her for our photography needs in the future.

“We had A BLAST with her...


⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️


Valentina was the most amazing photographer I have ever worked with. Her professional, bubbly, and warm personality made our entire wedding experience (about 2 years due to covid) such a fun one! As a covid bride, the added stress level was through the roof, but I never had to worry about Valentina and her capabilities over the course of planning and replanning our wedding. When we first met for our engagement session she was the best coach to teach us posing for the most optimal photos. But really, she is such a natural artist, and perfectly understands lighting. She has the keen eye for detail every bride hopes her photographer will have for the most stunning photos. A year and a half later, and Valentina DID NOT DISAPPOINT. We and all of our family and guests had A BLAST with her and her assistant photographing us at our wedding. She has a great energy; low stress, easy going, and captures every important moment. Weeks after our wedding I had emailed her asking when our photos would be ready. She even rushed the turnaround time so that I could have photos printed for my mom’s birthday. She is absolutely amazing to work with and we cannot wait to work with her for our future family portraits!

Forget everything you think you know about having your picture taken

The stiff poses, forced smiles, and cookie-cutter photos you remember from school picture day don’t exist here

Here are just a few ways I’ll make sure your wedding day is truly unforgettable:

Guided, not posed


You’ve only got one shot to get wedding photos right, which adds pressure to an already emotion-filled day. Don’t worry—


I’ve developed a process for warming you up in front of the camera and guiding you through formal shots.


You’ll know how to position yourself to show off your best angles and feel confident with every shutter click.

01.


02.

An extra thousand miles


Many photographers say they go the extra mile. But few have driven 1,000 miles across the state to capture a love so beautiful it puts the South Bend sunset to shame.


Whatever your vision, I’ll go to the ends of the earth (literally) to make it a reality.


Plus, I come prepared with a shot-by-shot plan for the day that makes time for all of the details you want preserved forever in photo.


Quick to React


Tracking to-dos and verifying vendors is overwhelming enough already.


From the moment you reach out to me, you’ll get prompt answers, proactive proposals, and a helping hand to make your wedding day picture-perfect. Consider me you wedding photo fairy godmother (or godfather, no judgment)!


No dirty socks, bridesmaid bras, or off-wedding-brand details will sneak their way into your final shots.

03.


04.

Prepared for surprises 


Whether it’s rain, vendor delays, wardrobe malfunctions, or a bit of family drama, I’ve seen—and solved—it all.


I show up with backup plans and gear plus boundless energy to turn sudden surprises into beautiful blessings for your wedding photos.


Just ask me to show you the infamous “fog shoot” for proof.



Timeless, true-to-you keepsakes


Fads come and go. But some things are forever. Most notably: elegance, light, and love. All of which you’ll find infused in every photo I take.


That way—


When your children flip through your wedding album in twenty years, they’ll find photos of you looking just as extraordinary as you did on your big day.

Are we a match made in wedding photography heaven?

Even if you haven’t found your venue yet, now is the time to inquire about wedding dates you’re considering. I wish I could document every couple’s one-of-a-kind love. But I can only accept 20 weddings per year. And my calendar tends to be completely booked by March.


Good news: Making the first move is easy. Just ask me on a date! (Your wedding date, that is).
