Hi, I am Valeria.
(Vah-LAIR-ee-ah) (She, her)
I’m all about colorful, vibrant, and moody photos. If you would describe yourself as awkward in front of cameras, you just might be my people! I feel I can get natural photos out of anyone. Connecting with clients and having them feel comfortable with me is one of the most rewarding parts of this job. I’ve been told I’m a warm and calming energy on what can sometimes be a stressful day. And I think being pretty goofy myself helps too!
Every relationship and wedding has a different story. I'm not going down a checklist, but instead, I want to capture who you genuinely are and all that makes you and your wedding unique.
I am an LGBTQ+ wedding photographer happy to serve our community. <3
I am always excited to work with people of all genders, sexual orientations, abilities, nationalities, beliefs, and races.

As much as I love getting to photograph Colorado’s gorgeous outdoor scenery, I’m a homebody at heart. So, in my free time, I love hanging with my cat, tending to my houseplants, making art/random crafts, bullet-journaling, doing puzzles, or trying out coffee shops!
Some wedding day favorites:
- Pets incorporated in any way <3
- The unposed and in-between moments
- Creating and starting your own traditions
- Party photos (one of my favorite parts of the day to capture, despite being an introvert!)
- Bringing out the visual magic that already exists in the lighting and details of your day
I started taking photos in 2006 when I was 18 and I've been doing weddings since 2012! It took me several years of loving art and photography before I decided to turn it into a business. When I first began taking photos, I expressed myself through personal photos, concentrating on quiet moments, lights, and shadows.
