Your Wedding Photography Experience

what to expect


Becoming a VV's Bride & groom

Send Me A Note about your wedding and I will get back to you with my wedding investment guide with all the details for your big day. Ideally I’d love to meet with both of you over a cup of coffee to talk in more details about your wedding and hear your love story! During that time I will also share with you some helpful tips on how to prepare for your big day from a photography point of view and will draft your personalized wedding photography timeline. After you decided we are a great fit, I will get you booked and officially save your date on my calendar!



Your Engagement Session

The engagement session is the perfect way for you to escape the reality of everyday life, have fun and get breathtaking photos to share with your friends & family! I will guide you through all the session, so you don’t need to worry about your posing and by the end of it, you both will feel totally comfortable in front of my camera! 


Planning Your Dream Wedding

Wedding planning can be seriously overwhelming! There are so many things take place in one day. And that's where my personalized timeline will help bring it all together. I am here to help you with anything you need while preparing for the most amazing day in your life!


your wedding day

Your wedding day is finally here! Every wedding day is different because your relationship is unique and your story is different than everyone else. From all the pretty details, your first look as bride and groom, your ceremony, newlywed portraits, to celebration with friends and family - I will be there, capturing it all! So you can simply relax and enjoy this day together knowing I will get awesome images for you to cherish for lifetime!



Your Wedding Photos & Heirlooms

I always strive to share a sneak peek on social media within a next couple of weeks, so you can enjoy your best images. In about a month after your wedding, all the highlights of your wedding day will be up on my blog, so you can relive each moment of the day and share your love story with family and friends. Eight weeks after your wedding day, you will receive access to your full online wedding gallery, ready to view, share, download and print, directly through my gallery or anywhere else if you like. Make a date night of it and look through your images together as you laugh and cry together. And don't let your images just sit on your computer, print and display them in your home so you can relive your big day over and over everyday when you pass by and glance at it!

“Wedding Photos are the only purchase you make toward your wedding that increases in value with time....”


Caitlin + Reid

“Valentina was amazing from start to finish! We did our engagement shoot with her which was included in the package. We felt so comfortable by the day of the wedding with her and all of our photos turned out so perfectly! She’s so easy to work with and the photos are even more than I could’ve imagined! The day of the wedding she was thinking of every single detail and getting every shot we had asked for and then some! Her assistant photographer for the day of the wedding was also so helpful and professional.”

Where are you based?

I'm based in Dallas, Texas, but I love to travel around the country and internationally to photograph destination weddings.

What are your rates?

Each event is unique. Wedding day quotes are customized to fit your specific needs. Full day coverage begins at $5,000. For a complete, custom estimate please reach out to me.

What are your travel fees?

I specialize in destination weddings, and my travel fees vary according to the destination and lodging for your specific event. I'd be happy to schedule a consultation so we can discuss your plans in detail and come up with a custom proposal for you.

Do you take a shot list?

I believe that the best way to capture meaningful moments is by looking up and being present in the moment, rather than checking off a shot list. However, I do use a shot list on your wedding day for family group photos and a few specific shots you're dreaming of.

Do you edit all your pictures?

Yes, I edit all the pictures, crop, color correct, digitally process and enhance them. I also may choose, if needed, to do a more complicated creative retouching for a certain pictures, especially for the highlight gallery and albums.

Do you release printing rights?

A printing rights give you a permission to reproduce the images in different types of media. And yes, I release the printing rights for personal use, which means you can print, share and give away as many photos as you like to your family and friends for as long as you desire. All the images will be yours for the rest of your life and you’re free to print them anywhere you like.

What happens if you get sick?

If I am unable to attend the wedding in person, my second photographer automatically becomes prime photographer, and I will have another photographer lined up to assist the first one. This way you are covered in case of an emergency!

That said, it has never happened in 8 years of me shooting weddings.

How long is your turnaround?

I edit every image with the utmost care, polishing the tiniest details to perfection. For this reason, I tend to play it safe and give the expectation of a 8-10 week turnaround on your wedding images. You will receive sneak peeks within a few days of your event so you can start sharing earlier.
