Hi. Congratulations on getting married! I’m Valerie. Val. I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. I have a dog, a cat, a library, and a bucket list. I’m a Parisian fashionista, and a bare-feet island girl. A rooted sentimental and a free globe trotter. And although my home is in Port Vila, in beautiful Vanuatu, I will photograph anyone, anything, anytime, anywhere. Because I’m a passionate photographer. And I will photograph weddings, families and happy people times, and time again. Because I’m a hopeless romantic. Because above all and beyond, I value life and hearts and souls. And I really can't think of any greater luck and privilege then to be the witness of one's happiness. It’s indeed a privilege to me, to tell stories with colours and light, to paint life and emotions from a wide angle up close, to look at strangers like they are family, because through the lens I can see that deep down we are all the same, when we laugh, when we cry, when we feel, when we love: we are all ordinary, we are all extraordinary. It’s a privilege to watch such magic unfold. To seize a look, a smile, a kiss, that laughter, that moment, that eternity, that heartbeat forever pounding the rhythm of ordinary life, forever feeling extraordinary. And afterwards, when I share the images of moments captured, faces light up, smiles reach ear to ear and laughter bursts in the room. People feel. They see it, their story, their journey, their world, their people… and it rocks!! And it moves them so much! That fills me with pure joy. That's why I do what I do. I wish you all the best with your wedding planning, would be happy to help with local knowledge or talk photography, and hope you'll swing by to tell me about your special day. Kindest regards, Val.
