Meet Val

Hey there, I’m Val!

And that little sausage I'm holding is named Eddie, he's our rescue pup! If you're a dog lover too, you can read about him here.

I’ve been a wedding and portrait photographer in Ottawa since 2011, and I can honestly say I have the best job in the world!!

If I’m not at home editing or forgetting where I left my coffee mug, I might be making dad jokes to the unsuspecting cashier at the grocery store. I'm obsessed with houseplants, and I LOVE a good cheesy pizza. I'm fluently bilingual in both English and French. Oui oui! :)

I'm an Algonquin College Photography program alumni and I’ve photographed 100+ weddings. I’m all about capturing genuine and candid moments. My photos are a reflection of how people felt in the moment.

My goal is to make the entire photography process as fun as possible because I sincerely believe that in making the experience amazing, the photos will be too!

What i'm probably sipping

  • Black coffee or peach tea

what I'm currently listening to

  • Billie Eilish
  • Queen
  • Coldplay

what i'm craving
