Before you share your story....

Let me tell you mine

Hi, Friend!

Welcome to my world

of photography!

I specialize in

Portrait & Wedding Photography

I am a certified photographer. I am 35 years young ;) mother of an 8-year-old boy, and a wife to a soldier! My home base is El Paso, TX but I love to travel the world with my family. We're currently located in New Windsor, NY and we are moving to Mankato, MN in the summer!

If I'm not taking photos, you'd find me hanging out with my family playing board games, hiking, taking RANDOM mini vacations or snuggling on the couch watching movies! I have been doing photography for quite some time now, and I LOVE IT! I find great joy in the art of capturing the merging of two lives as they become one. I understand the importance of capturing the beauty, emotion, and intricacies of the day so that they can be remembered forever. It is an honor for me to work alongside you and your family and capture this monumental milestone. My sessions are filled with laughs, crazy stories, and adventures. I can't wait to meet you!

My family and I will be moving to Mankato, MN, in June of 2024. I am willing to travel.

Best of Zola 2024

"I booked with Valerie after reading great reviews online in the Orange County NY moms' group. She did a fantastic job for our engagement shoot. She was wonderful with suggesting scenic places outdoors and her communication and follow up were great. During the shoot she gave us lots of tips for poses and the photos came out AMAZING! Very fast turnaround for the photos. I would definitely book again with Valerie."
