Welcome to keepsake photography.
I’m Valerie. Val. I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. I have a dog, a cat, a library, a bucket list and an addiction to chocolate. I’m a Parisian fashionista, and a barefoot 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, lovers, families and happy people times, and again, and again. Because I’m a hopeless romantic. Because above all and beyond, I value life and hearts and souls. It’s what I do, it’s who I am. It’s a privilege.
It’s a privilege, indeed, to tell stories with colors and light, to paint life up close or from a wide angle, 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 sunrise, a kiss, 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 now, their story, their journey, their world, their people… and it moves them like they had no idea. That fills me with joy, and gives me goose bumps. That's why I do what I do.
To me no two weddings are the same. I look at them, I really look. And I photograph what I see. I photograph the way this couple makes me feel, the way this venue is lightened, the way these friends are celebrating. My style is emotionally driven, sensitive and instinctive.
