About Valerie Sebestyen photography

Hey. I'm Valerie.
I am in love with the dynamic between intimacy and vulnerability in Humanity.


I "stole" my Father's old film cameras as a little girl, and filled my days with taking images of my pets, friends, family, and of course- selfies.

At 26, I can now say I've been passion about documenting Life, consistently for two decades.

I hold a formal education with Photography, alongside my non-formal and persistent education of exploring photography on my own. I combine various lighting techniques, conversation topics, and cuing, to create an environment for my clients that allows them to feel and acknowledge their worth, their Beauty, their Story...

When I'm not photographing the world through my lens, I teach Hot Yoga classes at Balance.Yoga.Barre. Midtown and Edmond.

When I'm not yoga-ing, I'm outside with my Rhodesian Ridgeback, Kenya, out at the stable with my horse, at Athlete Inc. working on Olympic Lifting, in Nature hiking climbing or exploring, or hula hooping and skating around. :)

I am in love with Flow.

Combining yoga experience, energy, and flow, I bring some different tools to the table when it comes to how I photograph and work with my clients.

I adore experiencing and capturing different cultures, age groups, traditions, and personalities of my clients.

I often hear people express anxiety or nerves before their session-you'll feel relaxed after 5 minutes of talking to me.
Especially upon realizing... that a photo shoot with me consists of good conversation, laughs, new friends and [conveniently] really beautiful and REAL pictures of you.

Concerned or curious?

Ask one of my clients all about their session with me, or guests at a wedding I have worked.

I interned with Shevaun William's and Simon Hurst, and learned a great deal about working with people, the equipment, and the editing process.

I interned in New York City during the summer of 2012 with NYC Wedding Photographer Ryan Brenizer at http://www.ryanbrenizer.com/. While there, he taught me a great deal about negotiating every possible situation that could pop up at a wedding with grace, and how to utilize my educated tools and personality, to create unique lighting, and timeless images.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Photography Arts and Public Relations with a minor in Advertising from University of Central Oklahoma (UCO)


I understand that to show a stranger who you are isn't easy.

I spend the beginning of my shoots just getting to know my client genuinely.

Let me get to know you.

Valerie is one of Oklahoma's hidden gems for a wedding photographer! Her prices are so reasonable which was a plus considering how incredible her photos turn out. Valerie did our engagement photos along with our wedding day. We even got our engagement photos back within a week!! Her sweet personality instantly made us feel at ease and we loved how she knew how to pose my husband and I. Each photo comes out beautiful, not cheesy! Valerie has a true gift and you won't be disappointed in choosing her as your photographer. :)

By far the most down to earth photographer I've had the pleasure of using. I used Valerie for 3 different sessions including my wedding. Superb quality, friendliness and comfort every time.
