SEEKING TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE WORLD

rooted in honesty, gratitude, adventure, and purpose

You can call me Val.

I'm a Bay Area portrait and wedding photographer.

If you're like me, you believe every person has a meaningful story to share, connections to make, trust to build, love to give, and inner light waiting to shine.

What excites me most about freezing time - with the intentional click of a shutter - is that you will see your vibrant light shine too. YOU will be the one they fondly remember. What are you waiting for? Relive your joyous memories over

and over again in true, natural color for years to come. Transform the memories we capture together into meaningful stories cherished by your growing family. Be the one who changes your family story.
