I am intrigued by the backstory -- the story behind the realization of an idea, the creative process of an artist, or the blossoming of a romance.

I am compelled to create films that tell these stories. In order to do so, I carefully select from a palette of visual and audio elements. The elements I draw from are video, Super 8 film, Super 35 film, printed text, stock footage, conversations, music, ambient sounds, which are then woven together in a seamless fashion.

It is my intention to give you a film that is engaging, emotionally stirring and inspiring to anyone who watches. Read less

Valerie was extremely creative and professional. Captured our wedding day from every angle without being invasive. Post-production with her was easy and fun (though my wife Carly handled it all, admittedly). End products (the trailer and full video) were like true art. She's a genius!

Valerie was wonderful. We loved the opportunity to work with her, and are thrilled with the final product.
While initially we did not prioritize having a videographer for our wedding, after seeing Valerie's work, we changed our minds and are so thankful that we did.
We now have a wonderful memory of the best moments of the day, that unfortunately flies by.
She was accommodating, professional and has a wonderful eye in capturing the moments of the day.
We could not give her more praise and highly recommend using her services.

As a professional and national award-winning events producer, it is part of my nature to sweat every detail and conduct an exorbitant amount of research before I hire anyone…especially to be part of such a special event as my own wedding day. I found Valerie to be the most creative and inspiring filmmaker I have ever worked with. Her ability to capture each and every meaningful moment of the day is amazing. She has an uncanny ability to know just what you want. (It should have been my first clue when on her website I found myself crying at other people’s wedding video excerpts she had as samples...and I didn’t even know these people nor am I typically a crier.) No matter what the occasion, Valerie should be the first hire on your list!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Valerie Barnes.
She has an amazing eye, is so creative, incredibly efficient and enjoyable to work with.
First important to note is that Valerie is a filmmaker! Her end product was a true movie of our wedding. It's something I'm proud to show to others. It evoked emotion in those who weren't even at our wedding!
I watched so many demo videos from that typical wedding video guy with the super cheesy music, staged scenes - ugh! - Valerie was a breath of fresh air and seeing her work was exactly what I was looking for.
Working with Valerie was a dream - She is prompt in all communication. She works very fast (I have my film before friends that were married months before me). On the day of - Valerie completely blends into the room. Most people did not even know that I had a filmmaker there!
I loved working with Valerie and I'm so proud and so in love with our film. I would 100% recommend Valerie Barnes Videography!

Valerie Barnes is an artist. Her work is for those who want their wedding video/film to truly be a beautiful and unique piece of art. Valerie's approach both during the filming/taping of the pre-wedding footage and on the day of was discreet and had a gentle, easy flow. The final piece quite simply took our breath away. And not only us; we held a screening at our home for close friends and family. In a small space overstuffed with many more people than it could comfortably hold, you could hear a pin drop while the piece played, followed by an eruption of applause at the end. Valerie Barnes will create a video/film for you well beyond your expectations, a true treasure of a keepsake.

Working with Valerie was an absolute pleasure from the start. She was professional, a great communicator, low maintenance, and an incredibly talented videographer/artist -- all important attributes when selecting a vendor for the big day. The day of our wedding, Valerie was awesome - she unobtrusively captured every special moment. Her work product was also impeccable. She delivered our uncut footage and a rough cut of the final product within six weeks of the wedding (this is impressive - talk to others - the biggest complaint about videographers is they don't deliver). Watching the edited video that Valerie produced, literally brought tears to my eyes. With no direction from myself or my husband on the focus of the footage, Valerie perfectly captured the beauty, emotion, love and pure joy of our wedding day - we did not ask to change a thing. Valerie also selected the soundtrack and it was truly the soundtrack that we imagined our wedding had, but could not put our fingers on ourselves. We highly recommend Valerie to those looking for a videographer AND for those who are unsure. If you have the budget to do it, this is your one chance to capture this day on film - go for it!

Valerie was incredibly professional and puts beautiful work together so you can revisit your special day. The best part is that my husband and I barely knew she was there- no obtrusiveness whatsoever, which we have experienced at some weddings over time. Our wedding guests agreed with us that she was stealth! We are so pleased with our video- including the music she chose to compliment our evening. Her attention to detail is great in that she truly wants to provide and preserve our moment in time. Thank you Valerie!

I would recommend Valerie to any bride. Her work perfectly captured the spirit and atmosphere of our day, and we were in particular delighted that it had the perfect balance of romance, elegance, and fun. Valerie and her team were a pleasure to have with us: unobtrustive, calm, and at all times armed with a smile and a fantastic sense of humour.
