What people are saying
I just wanted to give a BIG thanks to Valene for her AMAZING work.
Valene came in for an entire weekend retreat I was running to basically document the entire thing.
Her work was outstanding. Professional, VERY high quality, and most importantly, she was able to really tune into the overall energy of the group and beautifully capture the excitement, joy, and MAGIC experienced at the retreat. The way she would capture someone's genuine smile when their face lit up, or the way she would perfectly complement a group photo with the background of the colorful Sedona mountains, or the way she would help people (me!) loosen up so she could get some good shots was very impressive and demonstrated her mastery in this field.
Valene is one of those people that is doing exactly what she was put here to do and I am forever grateful that she was able to come share her gifts with me and everyone involved in the retreat.
Thanks again Valene!
Valene is a super talented photographer! Not only did she make us feel at home, but did such a great job at capturing the true soul of our relationship. We have never been photographed professionally before and didn't know what to expect. Valene made it so easy and so fun. It was like hanging out with a close friend who wanted to snap a few quick pics for prosperities sake.... except they were epic!!! With a few intuitive prompts and a keen eye for detail, Valene was able to position us physically and emotionally to capture the depths of the essence of our love. We both felt so incredibly comfortable which is quite a feat given the intimate nature of the session's goal. If you're ready to capture yourself with eyes beyond what you can imagine for yourself with ease and fun, then we both highly recommend working with Valene! Also, her personality is SO pleasant to be around thus adding to the comfort & fun level.

Valene is a beautiful soul and I felt very lucky to have the opportunity to work with her to create everything I desired for my photo shoot. She is from the heart through and through and puts the utmost best in her timely responses, suggestions and creative art. What made the experience even more meaningful was her intuitive guidance, and loving- kindness to fully understand my journey and the embodiment of the Divine Feminine I grew into. I felt comfortable in speaking and being my vulnerable self, sharing my Faith, journey, wisdom and path – and her creative gift of the Lens beautifully encompassed it all. I felt safe and loved in her presence. Thanks to her receptive energy, she actually made me Smile a lot more on camera, opened me up and allowed me to come into my personal freedom. I would definitely recommend working with her because I sure intend to continue seeking her special skills!

Valene adds to the magic of the event that you are seeking to capture. She has still framed the most special moments of my family’s life. Valene has a calm no-pressure presence which results in the most beautifully authentic pictures. Our Wanderlust leather bound photo books remain on our coffee table and have been a source of many wonderful conversations. I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants a true professional to create a customized & charming photography experience.
