Valerie is an AMAZING photographer and I'd not hesitate to ever recommend her to anyone! Although preparations on the day of our wedding were crazy and stressful, Valerie brought a sense of calm, fun, and excitement in and really helped create a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. She was so in tune with what I wanted and was also very encouraging which, as someone who generally doesn't like to be photographed, is reassuring and makes the whole experience waaaay easier! She's extremely talented (her photos speak for themselves!), and knows how to work with all sorts of situations and all sorts of people. My sister, for instance, is mentally handicapped, and this seemed like no problem for Valerie - she worked with my sister and managed to capture some great shots - which was amazing, since my family and I have never been successful at getting any shots of her! What was also great for me was the fact that I didn't need to worry about what Valerie was doing or if she was taking photographs I'd want - she just got stuck into it, was behind the scenes when she needed to be, mingled when she had to, etc. She's not only professional, but she brings a spark and a sense of fun that is really needed on one of the biggest days of your life!
Obviously your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you hope to capture as many moments of it as possible. The last thing you need is a photographer who has no clue what he/she is doing and ends up taking pictures that look like something your technically challenged grandmother took! Valerie, and her team, ensure that you walk away with beautiful, lasting memories. THANKS GUYS!!!!
