hi there,…


Cleveland wedding, headshots and family photographer

As a bride, you want a professional wedding photographer who understands your vision so you can enjoy your big day. You are an easy going couple, who heart life and would like to be able to have fun & dance the night away. If this is you,..welcome, you are in the right place. 

I’m Valerie,  I view myself as a storyteller. My job is to tell your life story in vibrant images, full of color, emotions  and a lot of personality. My photography style is a mix of photojournalism and creative portraiture.  I love using lights either it’s indoor at your dance floor or outdoor for a gorgeous sunset picture, for a more creative and fine art look. 

In the end of the day, I want to capture YOU and capture YOUR STORY. So go ahead, at your wedding,… feel free to dance to the beat, hugs or be silly on your family photo. Let’s make the whole day to be unmistakably ‘you’. 

Happy Clients

Valerie was our engagement/wedding photographer. LOVED our engagement pics! We are currently in the waiting process for our wedding pics, but the sneak peeks were absolutely STUNNING & my husband & I got so many compliments regarding our photographer from wedding guests!! They all said that she was friendly, bubbly, & fun (which I would COMPLETELY agree, her enthusiasm & demeanor make you feel SO comfortable while she’s taking your photos even if you’re someone who usually feels super awkward getting photos taken). They also said that you could tell she is good at what she does by the way she takes her photographs & uses her equipment! She had an assistant, on our wedding day as well who was also just wonderful!) !!! Would 110% recommend I Heart Life Photography!!!

It’s Going to be Perfect!

Let’s Plan Your Big Day!
