{modern portraiture.} timeless images.

The way I see it, your entire wedding is a story... and I want to tell the whole thing. I want to capture Aunt Jane seeing your Dad for the first time in eight years. I want your brother bursting out into tears while giving a toast. I want the moment when your best friend did the sprinkler in the middle of the dance floor and your Mom danced with the Best Man during Baby Got Back.

Stories are full of moments and details... emotion and joy... laughter and tears.

As a wedding photographer, I do not ask people to "say cheese". I don't step into the middle of the dance floor and ask you to smile during your first dance. I don't stop the bride while she is putting on her dress to look at the camera. I believe that on one of the most important days of your life, your time should be spent celebrating, creating memories, and enjoying the company of your family and friends.... not plastering a fake smile on for an all-day series of rushed portrait sessions.

I want to shoot real moments with real smiles and give you the story of what happened on your wedding day.
I shoot love stories. When you book with Valerie Demo Photography, your wedding coverage automatically covers, the day-of service, full-editing, a flash drive of all proofed, fully edited high-resolution images, a second shooter, and a high-end flushmount 50-page 10x10 album. You just pick the amount of hours and add on any sessions, and we are set to go!

Based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia, we are available for travel anywhere there is LOVE. Read less

With Valerie, you do not have to worry about your photos looking like every trendy pose on Pinterest. She has an artistic eye, attention to detail and great vibe that allows her to read a couple well and take photos in a way that reflects THEIR style and the style of the wedding.

She had a plan for the day (but was flexible when it rained!), quickly shared a couple sneak peak images and soon after sent us an amazing package with all of our images on a handy thumb drive. So easy! In all of her work, Valerie seems to have her subjects/clients in mind.

I would especially recommend Valerie to anyone who has untraditional, contemporary, DIY, military, funky or style-forward elements in their wedding. She thrives in unique settings and with fun people!

My new husband and I have nothing but amazing reviews for Valerie! Not only did she fly to Florida for our wedding, she was very professional, organized, and punctual from day one. We trusted her from the start and that was one less aspect of the wedding to be concerned with! She made sure she captured every detail of the wedding that we wanted. Her photography style is not traditional and boring, instead her photos are fun & modern! Also very friendly and affordable. Highly recommend Valerie Demo Photography! Check out her website, the photos speak for themselves!

Valerie and her crew really did amazing! It is now years later and I still enjoy looking at the photo album she created for us and people ask me all the time for the pictures that were taken of them at our wedding, because Valerie really know how to capture the moment! I would recommend her company to ANYONE and EVERYONE, but make sure that you call ASAP because she could be booked up and you want her to be at your Rehearsal, your wedding, your family photo ops, your babys first picture, and anything else you can think of. This year my family lost 2 family members, but lucky for us one of the best pictures ever taken of my Grandma was at my wedding and now that picture of her smiling is so much more than just a photograph. Thank you Valerie for all your patience and kindness over the years.

Valerie provided the photography for our large wedding, as well as designed and printed our invitations, menus, and programs.
The photos turned out better than I could have imagined. Her pricing is very good.
It was nice being able to have custom made invitations to exactly what we wanted.
I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a vendor!
Thank you, Valerie Demo Photography!
