"Lena was such an amazing photographer! I was very nervous about choosing a photographer, but Lena exceeded all of my expectations. She captured EVERY special moment so perfectly! I would recommend her for ANY photography service you need! She's the best and a lovely person to work with!" — Abbi & David
“My husband and I knew that lena was our girl the second we walked out of Starbucks after our first meeting. Valentia Productions is one hundred percent the way to go when it comes to hiring a wedding photographer. Not only is she insanely talented with what she does.” — Claire & Elliott
“Lena is amazingly creative and funny! Shooting with her was not only fun, but also a total confidence booster.The entire time she made sure I was comfortable and happy. She's the whole package. The pictures she took of me amaze me and make me feel beautiful! I cannot thank her enough!” — Courtney
I'm obsessed with you and how you remember your big day. I'm your wedding day bestie and I want you to walk away just as excited as I am. I travel around Oregon and Washington, helping northwest couples all along the coast celebrate their love. I live in Vancouver, WA with my husband Scott, and our pup, Bo.
some of my favorite love stories
For someone like Ahmed who rock climbs and summits ridiculous mountains like Mt St. Helens, this was a pretty low-key adventure, BUT I have to say this was probably the best dressed he's ever been while exploring the PNW!
Puppies plus windblown hair equals I'm in love this Oregon Coast engagement session! This couple brought their 3 boys along and completely embraced the windy oregon coast weather we were having.
The sun was shining on Lauren and Colby for their first look tucked away in the soaring green trees at Summit Grove Lodge in Ridgefield, WA.
I want to celebrate how amazing it is that we all aren't going to look like a styled session. How amazing it is that we get to ROCK all different styles of wedding dresses.
A romantic snowy engagement session with Viktoria + Maksim!
We adventured to waterfalls, ran on beaches, floated in lakes, kissed in the desert, strolled by rivers, held hands on mountains, looked cool on rooftops, danced during sunsets and celebrated being together forever.
At first we were thinking a pretty garden-style location but then fell in love with the desert scenery that Central Oregon offers. Since their wedding will be in a location with tons of greenery, my suggestion is always to mix it up and go with a different look for the engagement session.
I love that I get to be friends with my clients. Learning all about their vision for the wedding day and the stories behind their love story (like the incredible story behind Lauren's ring later in this blog). It all helps me do my job better on the big day.
You should have seen my happy dance when Holly told me she wanted to bring her canoe, wear a red floor-length gown and eat smores for their engagement session.
