I try to be very flexible and adapt my style to fit what the couple wants. I love weddings. I love the fashion, the family and the dancing. I try not to just be there to document the event but support the couple and make sure they can relax and have fun on their day. I'm proudest of when I've been a bride's confidant or helped a best-man perfect his Windsor knot.

My prices for weddings starts at $1200. The basic package includes full ceremony coverage, 4 hours of reception, with a photo session for the couple with their family and friends. I do editing on 175 of the best photos and make some refinements to them: color correction, exposure correction, and re-cropping if needed. I do some final retouching with photoshop on 5 of the couple's favorite images. The higher end prices include more elaborate ceremony and reception coverage with a second photographer, as well as more post-production, retouching, prints, etc.

I also do engagement portraits in the photo studio or on location. Read less

We met with Magnolia Weddings' Erich Valo and instantly knew that he was the one. Erich knows what he's doing and will do everything he can to make sure you get the pictures you want. We started by meeting Erich at a park in San Francisco for our engagement photos, and boy was that a crazy day. My significant other and I both decided to wear outfits that weren't exactly agreeing with the San Francisco weather. After an hour or two of pictures, we felt that we might not be getting the photos we wanted. Erich had the idea to go closer to the water and take a photo with it in the background. We agreed, but we first had to get to our car which was parked rather far away, so Erich gave us a ride with his lovely family. When we reached our car, Erich and his wife realized where we had parked was such a picturesque scene that Erich had us pose for some pictures. Those pictures turned out to be the ones we chose to send out with our save the dates and we got a myriad of compliments from friends and family. This just goes to show that sometimes what you envision doesn't always work, but with a good photographer like Erich, he can help you from a new vision.
Our wedding was an equally crazy day, but my wife and I knew we didn't have to worry about the photos. Erich did an amazing job at looking like he was part of the family, and not just a man with a camera attached to his face. His transitions were amazing from looking like a guest at the reception to dancing in the hall while snapping amazing photos. He really knows how to capture the mood of an event, but also knows how to frame a shot and what f-stop to use. He even sent his assistant to get my wife's favorite drink during the wedding, a Starbucks mocha frappuccino!
Erich went above and beyond for our wedding and I know this won't be our last encounter with him. I highly recommend Magnolia Weddings for any event that requires a skilled photographer that takes amazing, high quality photos

We had a lot a rain at our wedding, which was a mostly outdoor affair, and Erich was able to work around it and get the extended family all together and take some great portraits that now set in frames on our walls. I am eternally thankful that he made that happen, because the day was such a whirlwind for my wife and I and we would have forgotten all about it. Highly recommended!
I don't know about price, as the photography was set up as a gift, so in that sense I got a lot of value for the money, but I just wanted to be clear I'm not reviewing price, just overall quality and effectiveness of what I wanted under unusual circumstances.
In retrospect, I think you can't plan for every contingency of a wedding, so it's nice to know you have someone willing to adapt to whatever happens.
