Let's get personal

I'm so glad you're here!

You know that feeling you get when that fresh cup of hot cocoa just warms your soul?

Yeah, I'm kinda like that

A Northern Indiana wedding photographer that makes you feel good! Your wedding is unique; it's magical, it's the day you've dreamt of your whole life. I get that. You are why I believe in what I do.

My goal is to be invisible when I need to be,
front and center when appropriate,
and to always over-deliver on my couple's expectations.

More about Val

I've danced to at least one song at every wedding I've photographed.

I've un-officially titled my go-to Starbucks drink the Val Blend.
Here's the recipe:
2 Pumps white chocolate mocha
2 Pumps brown sugar syrup

I love watching The Office. So much that my husband and I can speak exclusively in Office quotes.

I once slipped on a loose butter packet while photographing a reception. I still walk around with my camera up to my face... I just try to wear shoes that won't slip! 

My favorite way to unwind after a wedding is with a big bowl of Rocky Road ice cream. That or some chips and guac from Chipotle!

Dancing has always been a passion of mine. Growing up I did ballet, and even danced en pointe. As an adult I taught Ballroom & Latin dancing for 5 years!

We have 2 adorable shih-tzu pups that have us wrapped around their tiny paws. Juno, the grey one, is sweet and loves to snuggle on the couch. Holly is a wild child.

Let's make it awesome


a great time
