I have so many wonderful things that I could say about Valerie! Everything from the first meeting and showing me all of her work and different pictures she has taken in the past, you could see the sheer joy that she has when she gets to work with you. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable during our engagement session and allowed us to have fun and enjoy it together! She is so quick at responding anytime I had a question, even not related to photography but wedding in general she would do whatever she could to help. The wedding day went so smoothly thanks to her planning and organizing to ensure that all the pictures we wanted were taken care of. She also stepped in wherever she could help and was just so encouraging and supportive! Her pictures are beautiful and we love every single one of them! I would definitely highly recommend Val to anyone and everyone! She is absolutely wonderful!!

I can’t say enough great things about Valerie. From our first meeting, we knew she was the one! She was flexible with our unusual wedding day timeline when other photographers were not. She kept in touch over the course of our engagement. I used tons of her tips throughout the process and on our wedding day. Our wedding day was perfect. She showed up early and stayed late. She was firm in giving directions to my rowdy family, but also respectful and adaptable. And most importantly, she produced a STUNNING sneak peek of photos. I would highly recommend Valerie Michele Photography for any bride across the country.

There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Val is and her eye for the perfect picture! From our engagement session to our wedding day, Val made sure we were comfortable and having FUN with her bubbly and outgoing personality. Our wedding day ran smoothly because Val was so organized and made sure it was all about us! Valerie went above and beyond of a "normal" photographer by helping us create a wedding day timeline, worked with our date change, calls and texts to check in, and working through crazy weather on our wedding day. We are so thankful to have Val's friendship as well as her capturing our special day. Val is truly a blessing and I recommend her to EVERY bride!

Val's work speaks for itself - we could not have asked for better photos from our wedding! They will always be a keepsake for us as we fondly look back on our special day. We greatly appreciated her guidance for poses as well. Thanks Val!

Val has been absolutely amazing since day one. She is not just a photographer.. she truly becomes a wonderful friend. My photos have turned out to be more than I could have ever imagined, and she gets them to me immediately. 11/10 recommend Val for your wedding needs.

100% I would recommend Val as your photographer for any special occasion. Val just did my wedding and she was so professional and personable. From the very beginning she was very understanding and really desired to help us create the day that my wife and I wanted. What I also appreciated was how very detail oriented she was and her plethora of valuable resources and information to help in times when you as the client are unsure. Not to mention, her talent to take photos that capture a lot of life and love. You cannot go wrong choosing her as your photographer.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Valerie! From the very beginning she was super easy to connect with and made the process fun and seamless for us both. Our first meeting was relaxed and genuine. She was so thoughtful and walked us through the entire process and what we could expect. On the wedding day, Val was super organized and guided us throughout our journey. She made the whole day about us and we can’t thank her enough for her friendship and support. Her work is absolutely stunning. Getting to work with Valerie has been a blessing. I highly recommend her to any bride!

Val did a really amazing job. Choosing a photographer made me nervous, because I cared a lot how my wedding photos would turn out! There were hundreds that we absolutely loved. She is a good communicator, has a clear plan, is enthusiastic, and cares about what makes each wedding personal and special. She did a great job with photographing my husband, who has very dark skin, alongside me, who has very light skin. If you're looking for a photographer who understands how to photograph an interracial couple even in bright sunlight, she will do a great job.
