We would love to share your experience…

I am beyond grateful for every opportunity to work with such thoughtful and caring brides along my journey! Thank you for taking the time to leave a note!

Leaving this review is FAR overdue!, but having just received the photographs from our last session with Valerie I wanted to put this down. My wife and I, plus our family have been working with Valerie for going on 8 years now and she has been nothing short of AMAZING!! We first contacted Valerie about doing our Engagement photos back in 2012. Now I personally hate taking photos...it’s just never been my thing. Going into the day of our engagement photos I was dreading what was to follow and wanted to get the day over with as soon as possible, but come the end of the session I had a smile on my face that I couldn’t get rid of!! Valerie is the definition of professional but has an extraordinary way of making the atmosphere lighthearted and fun! My wife and I laughed our way thru the session and it has been that way each and every time we’ve met with her.

On our wedding day my wife and I were nervous wrecks, but Valerie and her team went above and beyond to make sure our day was nothing short of perfect. Our wedding planner essentially dropped the ball on multiple occasions that day, but Valerie herself stepped up and made sure that things were taken care of...even at one point noticing that my wife and I had not eaten, so she made us two plates and pulled us aside so we can eat! That might not sound like much but the thought and care that she put into that day is something my wife and I will never forget!!

In total, Valerie has done our Engagements, Bridals, Wedding, a Mothers Day shoot, Pregnancy, our Daughters 1st Birthday, and Easter Family photos we just did last month. We have and will always recommend VMA to anyone in need of the very best in photography!

Valerie, thank you so very much for all that you’ve done for Jaimie, Amelia, myself and our family. You have literally watched my family grow from behind the lens and I can’t thank you enough for that. We will forever have amazing photos from the most important days of our lives to look back on. You are truly an artist, and the best of the best at what you do!!

Valerie was absolutely the best! We asked her to travel to Arizona to shoot our engagement photos, and without hesitation she traveled to Phoenix! She was so professional and easy going, it made taking our photos a breeze! We even brought our beagle for some of our pictures and she did an amazing job working to make sure she got the perfect shot with our ever so ancy beagle

We spend thousands of $$ on flowers, rings, cakes, and venues. Plan for months to gather for this monumental day. Then in a matter minutes is here, then over and gone. Only our memories are left and most of the time a blurr. That’s why I’m so thankful we trusted Valerie @VMA Photography to capture this precious day for our daughter and son in law. For Valerie it’s not just her passion or her job. It’s her heart that she uses to capture the true romance of these tender moments! Why risk our valuable investment or the irreplaceable memories of the long awaited day to just any photographer ? You were Heaven sent girl! Thx!!

Valarie is so amazing! She shot my senior pictures years ago and I loved my pictures so much I was lucky enough to get her to shoot my engagements, bridals, and wedding! She pays attention to detail and is able to take any setting and make it beautiful! We enjoyed every session and on wedding day I couldn’t have done it without her! She was able to capture every moment and we are so pleased with our pictures! Thank you Val!

The first time I laid my eyes on Valerie’s work, I was instantly sold. I wanted someone who not only worked well with my personality and vision but someone who showed their dedication to my needs. From our very first meeting to my engagement shoot, Bridal session, and the actual wedding day, Valerie provided me with that forever ending love story through photos. Valerie’s passion and attention to detail made my experience one of the best experiences of my life. My husband and I are forever grateful and thankful for Valerie because she captured moments that we will always be able to remember. I wish I could give her a thousand stars because finding someone with excellent communication skills and professionalism is rare but Valerie is one of a kind. Thank you so much Valerie for all you hard work and time put in.

I wanted Valerie the minute I came across her photographs. She was my dream photographer for my wedding. I knew I would love her from the moment I spoke with her on the phone. Not only could I hear her passion for photography over the phone, but she was all about what I liked and wanted. She guided me through the wedding planning, asked questions, answered questions. She was also my rock on the wedding day. She took the reigns and guided me all evening! That alone made her such a pleasure to work with. and our PICTURES! Our engagements and wedding pictures are more than I could ever ask for. I hear so many people wishing their pictures were better and we will NEVER have that feeling. Thank you VMA Photography for capturing the best day of our lives. <3

From the first time I met with Valerie to discuss potentially shooting my wedding, I knew she would be a great fit. I had so many ideas and questions that she helped bring clarity to. She is so personable and extremely flexible when discussing your personal vision.

My husband and I are two large personalities that are surprisingly enough camera shy, so the idea of doing Engagement Photos made us both a bit anxious...but once the first few shots were out of the way, the giggles came rolling in. Valerie is professional, but also knows how to let looks and have fun when shooting.

Valerie made note of those moments and shots important to us and captured them beautifully. On our wedding, she blended in so well and captured great moments without making others feel uncomfortable.

I could not recommend a better photographer to entrust with your precious moments!!!!!!

Valerie is the best! She made me feel so comfortable and beautiful for my bridals! She took every aspect of the day and the things that i wanted and made sure it happened! Her love and passion for her brides is outstanding, she is definitely one of a kind!

Valerie is amazing! I could not have asked for a better engagement/bridal/wedding picture experience. I had a limited amount of time to take pictures since I’m currently in medical school, but she worked around it. I only had one day I could take my bridals (which it poured the entire day) and somehow she still managed to make my pictures come out beautiful! I can honestly say I never liked taking professional pictures until I booked her as my photographer. Even when we had a mishap at the wedding with my mother in law, she held her cool. I can’t say enough about her! I highly recommend her! You won’t be disappointed!

Amazing Photographer/Great to work with posted 7/14/2015
Working with VMA Photographer was great from the start. Val with VMA was super helpful, made awesome recommendations, was always prompt and on time, and truly didn’t miss anything. I cannot say enough great things about VMA Photography. I am so happy to have worked with them throughout the entire wedding process. They captured our engagements, my bridals, and our wedding. Such a great wedding photographer with a great history doing what she loves—weddings! Would highly recommend with no hesitation.

BEST Photographer of all time! posted 5/13/2014 (updated 5/14/2014)
Valerie and her assistant/second photographer Annie are INCREDIBLE! VMA photographed our engagement session, my bridals and our wedding. She was able to truly capture our personalities on film while making us look amazing at the same time. She allows you to feel very comfortable during the photo sessions and has wonderful ideas for lighting, positioning and location that translate beautifully to film. We received innumerable compliments on the quality of our photographs. During my bridal session, Annie was so attentive to the positioning of every hair and piece of lace which added so much to the finished product. These girls are a stellar team. Not only did she capture the most intimate and incredible candid moments of our ceremony and reception, but also managed to easily coordinate my very large family and transition smoothly between family group photos after the ceremony. My sister also used Valerie for her wedding ceremony a few months before ours and it feels as though you are reliving the entire night when looking at these pictures. The artistry, quality and timeliness of finished photos is unrivaled. I would HIGHLY recommend VMA photography to anyone! VMA’s work is second to none!

Valarie is very professional and up for anything. She flew states away for my wedding, and even in the cold weather she smiled thru it all. She makes sure your wedding is the best ever, and i have a thousand pictures to go back and remember every detail. Even the stuff you wouldn’t think to capture she does. She has an eye for it and I wouldn’t recommend anyone but her to photograph one of the most important days of your life.

I knew I wanted Valerie to shoot our wedding from the moment I saw her photographs. She was my dream photographer. Then I spoke with her on the phone and loved her even more. I could hear her passion for photography, and she asked questions, made suggestions, and picked my brain for what I like and don’t like. She worked with my husband’s work schedule and made things happen! She has been an absolute pleasure to work with for the entire year of planning. On the wedding day she took the reigns and a load off my shoulders and guided me the whole evening. Our engagement and wedding photos are more than we could have dreamed of. She captured our love, our personalities, and the greatest day of our lives. Thank you VMA Photographer <3
