Wedding & Elopement PHOTOGRAPHER

For the down to earth couples

with a wild side

If you’re looking for an out-going, fun, and hard working photographer, you found the right person! I put my whole heart into making sure my clients have the most amazing and smooth experience. I have seen weddings from all sides - I’ve been a bride, a bridesmaid, and the photographer. 

You’re in the right place.

always authentic + innovative

My name is Valen

I couldn’t have picked a better photographer for my wedding. We are SO happy with all the pictures we’ve gotten from Valen. With the pandemic, we had to relocate our wedding out of state, and she was super willing to fly to our new location so she could still shoot everything for us. She came half way across the country to a place she had never been before and still killed all of the pictures. I could go on and on, but I promise if you hire her, she will give you more bang for your buck and you will not be disappointed. Plus she’s super fun and easy to talk to also!!

Valen took our engagement photos and we were so lucky to have found her! She is very communicative, genuine and professional. She was very quick to get us our photos and even gave us previews the same day as our shoot! She is very talented and our new go-to photographer here in Seattle!

We booked Valen for our engagement pictures & were so happy with everything that we also asked her to do our elopement. We ended up having some troubles with scheduling because of military. Valen was SO flexible with rescheduling our date with such short notice AND during peak wedding season. After our elopement, my husband & I kept talking about how happy we were that Valen was there. She helped coordinate everything, made the evening run smooth & was SO genuine/personable…felt like we had hired a friend as our photographer! We also received almost 30 sneak peeks, not even 12 hours after our elopement! Such a quick turnaround. I could go on & on. BEST. PHOTOGRAPHER. EVER.

Valen! We are SHOOK TO OUR CORE AND TRULY BLOWN AWAY!!!!! I’m honestly speechless… you have me crying all over again. I seriously cannot express my gratitude enough… I was sooooo nervous the entire time getting ready and then I saw you and Hunter which immediately put me at ease because I knew everything would run smoothly with you two!! You made the entire day feel effortless and so much fun which is truly a gift that both of you have! My entire family and so many guests came up to me and said that they couldn’t be more impressed with you guys! I cannot believe how talented and professional you are at such a young age and how much of a boss you are… seriously killing it in your profession!! Thank god I just happened to find you on Instagram reels!!!
