About the name:
Valentia means courage and bravery in Italian. The name is inspired by my great-great grandma Josephine, who was brave enough to emigrate here from Italy. That was her story. My dream is to capture the stories of those courageous enough to share.
Thank you for taking time to learn more about me. It is so important to me that your photographer fits your personality and stylistic preferences. Take a look around, and if you decide that we are a good fit, contact me to set up a complimentary consultation!
I graduated from the University of Oregon in March 2017 where I honed my story-telling skills. (Check out my media planning website) After completing me degree in Advertising with a minor in Business, I moved to Vancouver WA with my hunk of a hubby. It is such a dream come true to stay living in the beautiful PNW! Scott proposed to me on November 6, 2016, and I am having a blast relating to my 2017 brides with all this wedding planning! I work full time as a digital marketing specialist, so between that and Valentia, I stay very busy, but when I have a sec I'm either out scouting gorgeous session locations, riding my horse, Livia, snuggling my pup, Bella, or watching sports with my boy.
What gets me excited about what I do is capturing the shot, the moment, the emotion that is 100% you. To get this magical shot, I have the privilege of getting to know you, which is absolutely my favorite part about being a photographer.
