About PNW Love Stories

PNW Love Stories


Hi! My name is Valerie! I am a hopeless romantic who wants to be behind the lens of your love story. I fell in love with photography in my high school darkroom. I went on to major in media and communication at University of Washington with a focus on visual arts. I have always been a story teller, a big feeler and obsessed with all things love, so photographing weddings is quite literally living my dream. I have photographed over 130 weddings and have the same passion for them as when I first started. I cannot see myself doing anything else.

I am fully prepared to help you plan your timeline, refer reliable vendors and answer any questions you may have. I am a pro at preparing you for your big day and at calming your nerves when it arrives. You can count on me to get on the floor and bustle your dress and to fix your make up if you shed a few tears. I will show up not just as a professional but as a friend. I will laugh with you and I certainly cry with you all while striving to give you the most incredible images possible. I have truly found my bliss capturing love stories and I cannot wait to tell yours!

    I am thrilled to share my positive experience with Valerie as our wedding photographer for our civic ceremony. Valerie's easy-going nature, responsiveness, and meticulous preparation made the entire process seamless. She took the time to scout the venue and guided us to picturesque spots at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, resulting in stunning photos filled with vibrant fall colors. Despite a minor issue, Valerie was quick to address and resolve it, demonstrating her commitment to client satisfaction. We now cherish our photos even more, thanks to Valerie's skill and dedication. I highly recommend Valerie for anyone seeking a talented and reliable wedding photographer.

    Valerie is one of my absolute FAVORITE people to work with! As a wedding planner and coordinator, we are very selective as to who we recommend to our clients! I recommend her to every possible client I can! She is so professional and her work is incredible! Not to mention she makes you feel so at ease and comfortable while taking photos throughout the day! If you are thinking about hiring her you are making a solid investment! I can't WAIT for our next wedding together! -Sydney

    Valerie did our wedding July 2023, and we could not say enough nice things about her. She was so amazing to work with! Her and her support Erin made our day go so smooth and were so helpful. Our guests loved the experience and have told us only great things about their interactions with them. Our photos went so smoothly and so many amazing candid shots were captured. As someone who is slightly on the introverted side as is my husband, she made us feel so comfortable being the center of attention. We are in love with our photos and have shown everyone we know. She also did our engagement session which we would highly recommend as it helped us build that relationship even before the wedding day. Hire PNW love stories! You will not regret it!

    Valerie was amazing through the entire process. We did a small elopement in an area she happened to be very familiar with which led to amazing photos! It started raining immediately and she rolled with it and still got all of the perfect shots. Her communication was wonderful and we got photos back very timely. 10/10 would recommend!
