My husband and I loved working with Valerie. Shopping around for a wedding photographer (or any wedding vendor for that matter) was not something that sounded fun or appealing to me but I felt very at ease once I met Valerie. Not only are her photographs amazing, but her personality is what sells it for us. She really listens to what you want as a couple in terms of style and your personalities. She was incredibly encouraging during our 105 degree engagement shoot and kept it fun and upbeat so the heat wasn't bothersome. During our wedding she was personable with everyone and put up with the wedding party needing directions repeated multiple times as people got excited and distracted. We requested to have a decreased amount of time placed in staged photos and lots of candid ones at the reception, and they turned out great! We also did not do a first look, and wanted to capture my husband's expression when I walked in, as well as my entrance. We were amazed when we got photos back of the ceremony because she captured so many angles and spots in the chapel we had our wedding in, but we never even noticed her moving around during the ceremony. The bridal party loved her and she was so much fun to have at our wedding. Bottom line: photos are phenomenal, pricing is fantastic, and Valerie really takes the time to get to know you and deliver photos personalized to your taste.
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.
If you are looking for top quality photos with a fair price, look no further! Valerie is very nice and makes sure you know everything you need to know before signing with her. She breaks down the prices so you know exactly what you are paying for, and shows her work at the consultation. Valerie is absolutely brilliant and I can't wait for my wedding day so I can see the fierceness that will be her photos. So Excited! =)
I love Valerie! She has taken care of all of my photography needs (except one time when she was already fully booked) since 2010!
Valerie was awesome! She has such a laid back and easy going personality that it makes it really comfortable to shoot with her. My husband and I have always hated being in front of the camera but she made us relax and got some really great shots. She is great at taking any ideas you have and combining it with her own. I thought the price was very reasonable compared to a lot of other photographer packages I looked into. I would definitely use her again in the future.
Valerie photographed our wedding in June 2016 at Belmar Golf Club in Norman. She had worked a couple weddings out there already so she was very familiar with the course & the venue, which was super helpful in getting the best shots possible! She perfectly captured how fun the night was. There were a lot of candid shots that we absolutely loved, you can't get those kind of pictures while posing. Another great thing, Valerie is very fairly priced and makes obtaining great wedding pictures affordable. We are so happy with our wedding photos, Valerie did a great job!
Not only are Valerie's pictures beautiful, they truly captured our life and love for each other. She was so encouraging and made us feel so comfortable so that we could make each picture a great shot. She was incredibly professional and responsive to all of your questions and concerns. Her editing was beautiful and natural, and she got our pictures back to us so quickly! We could not be happier with her, and we will definitely be recommending her to friends and family and using her again in the future!
Valerie was so great to work with, and is the best value around Oklahoma City! She is such a dynamic person who can interact with anyone, and coming from a family of strong personalities, this was invaluable on our wedding day. Valerie did what needed to be done without having to be asked, and maneuvered the wedding like the pro that she is! We can't wait to see what gorgeousness she produced from that day, and we highly recommend her for any photography needs you have!
Valerie produced some really beautiful images, and unlike many brides I really didn't have any idea about what I wanted. She's also extremely affordable compared to other local photographers. I recommend her highly.
Valerie is a phenomenal wedding photographer! She knows exactly how to capture each moment to make it timeless and natural. She has a wonderful sense balance and color, and she does a fantastic job of making you feel at ease. Our images were absolutely exquisite and she made us both look beautiful. My husband had a cobalt blue suit that shifted colors with the lighting, and Valerie made it look just as dazzling in the photos as it was in person. She gave us a huge chunk of her time and energy, and is such a joy to be around as an individual! If you have the chance to hire Valerie, do not hesitate, because someone else will snap her up!
Valerie was wonderful and was descreet during the wedding. She was quick and her work is amazing. She is worth so much more than charges.
Valerie did our engagement photos, my bridal session and our wedding photos. She did an amazing job and you can tell she is really passionate about what she does. She made the whole experience so much fun and special!
Phenomenal photography- not just the beautiful pictures, but for her fun, calming spirit on the day as well. I love her, my husband loved her, our parents loved her, our grandparents loved her... should I go on? Full photo rights, photos mailed right to me 4 weeks after the wedding on a huge flashdrive. I am swimming in the most beautiful memories. Thank you so much, Valerie!
First off- Valerie's pricing makes every other photographer look like they're price-gouging. She was the least expensive photographer we looked at with the most impressive portfolio. As for the actual service? Phenomenal photography- not just the beautiful pictures, but for her fun, calming spirit on the day as well. I love her, my husband loved her, our parents loved her, our grandparents loved her... should I go on? Full photo rights, photos mailed right to me 4 weeks after the wedding on a huge flashdrive. I am swimming in the most beautiful memories. Thank you so much, Valerie!
I've known Valerie since high school and she was talented early on, so I knew exactly who I wanted for our wedding photographer. I couldn't reocmmend her enough to anyone who is thinking of hiring her. She is a fantastic soul and is one of the best. She did our engagement, wedding and my wifes brial shoot. We didn't worry about asking her to do anything specific as she was a step ahead of us or had a better idea. Her pricing is fantastic and she'll do everything she can to make sure you get the best from her.
Valerie was very responsive, and took very good photos. She was adaptable, such as when we wanted to take outdoor pictures all over downtown in what ended up being sub-freezing temperatures. She took engagement pictures on short notice, and didn't have a problem with all the guests grabbing her for pictures, or taking their own pictures of photos she was taking.
Valerie was magnificent! She responds well to every type of person. She has an amazing gift for capturing love and moments. I would suggest Valerie to anyone who needed a photographer!
Valerie was very attentive and willing to do whatever it took for our day to be perfectly captured! I would not have had anyone else as my photographer on our special day! Her work is fabulous. She edits beautifully and does not over do it.
Valerie is truly amazing to work with. She takes beautiful photos and provides wonderful direction on how to get the perfect pose. She is very professional while still being social and open. I would recommend her to anyone needing a photographer and I plan to continue to hire her in the future for my special events.
I loved having Valerie shoot my wedding! She was super personable and acted as though she had known the whole wedding party when she had just met them that day. She even lended my hair stylist a hand when she needed it!
Valerie was amazing! Such a joy to work with and is a gifted photographer.
Valerie's photography is absolutely AMAZING! She did a wonderful job capturing all of the magical moments of our special day. Valerie is always extremely professional, pays attention to the tiniest details (such as making sure one bridesmaid takes the ponytail holder off of her wrist before bridal party photos), is so easy to work with, and knows how to make everyone feel comfortable for beautifully natural-looking photos. I would recommend her to anyone!
Amazing photographer! Amazing person! AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!!!!
Valerie was a dream to work with. You will not beat her prices with the level of photography she provides. She arrived on time and literally spent the entire day with us, getting photos of everything, all the way from hair at 9 AM to the 1970 Pink VW Bug getaway at 11:30 PM. My mother is a photographer, so we were very picky when it came to choosing one for my wedding. We were not disappointed. I have had so many compliments regarding the photos and still haven't been able to narrow it down on which to print because there are so many wonderful ones to choose from! We are now thinking of doing a whole printed book because there are just so many.
Also, she will provide you with many more images compared to other photographers. I believe my portfolio consisted of around 900 pictures, versus other photographers said they usually get around 400-500.
You will not be disappointed with Valerie's service. Book her!
