Hi there! I’m Valerie, but you can call me Val.

My husband and I have been capturing the magic of adventure elopements and intimate weddings in the picturesque Pacific Northwest since 2020. I’m the girl behind the camera, and he’s the guy who officiates ceremonies and signs the papers. But that’s not all we do.

I assist couples with:

  • Figuring out the details of their adventure elopement or intimate wedding
  • Location scouting
  • Permit applications
  • Local vendors recommendations
  • Fun activities to include on their special day
  • Creating a timeline
  • Fostering a relaxing and friendly atmosphere during the Big day
  • Capturing their true candid moments

My rockstar husband Pasha is my right-hand man, scouting locations and coordinating photoshoots. With him by my side, I’m always geared up and full of energy, giving me the freedom to focus solely on capturing those perfect shots.

He is also the magic behind making unions official. Being ordained, he officiates elopements and intimate wedding ceremonies, taking care of all the paperwork with the County. We offer this service complimentary because making your special day stress-free is what we’re all about!


  1. Before diving into the world of elopement photography, I wandered through 45 countries as a professional travel photographer. From lavish resorts to budget-friendly hotels, Michelin star dinners to street food stalls, and free-spirited adventures to high-end activities—I’ve experienced it all. This journey taught me the art of creating unforgettable moments without breaking the bank. My mission is to craft a unique elopement experience, that is both memorable and captivating,
  1. I moved to Seattle during the pandemic, where the local nature became my sanctuary during travel restrictions. Now, I’m your go-to guide for the Pacific Northwest unveiling vibrant spring flower fields and breathtaking mountain reflections in serene lake waters.
  1. My pricing is transparent, with no hidden fees. Feel free to ask any questions during our free welcome call. I’ll also share some ideas for your future elopement. Once we sign a contract, I’ll stay in touch to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Check out my portfolio to see if it resonates with you. You can also visit my blog for a glimpse of inspiration for your perfect elopement or intimate wedding.

My fiancé and I hired Valerie and her husband Pasha to take our engagement photos and we couldn't be happier! Valerie helped us the whole way starting with picking out outfits and finding an amazing spot right next to the Columbia River.

When we arrived to the spot where we were shooting, she took a moment to get the two of us together and get us in a relaxed state where we were focused on nothing but each other the whole time. Pasha was so great assisting us as well and keeping the vibes high with some good music. It was really a treat to work and share such a special moment with an easy going and kind couple like Valerie and Pasha.

Now we've gotten the pictures back and are thrilled to have such a stunning set of photos that have captured our love in a way we can look back and cherish for a lifetime!

Thank you again Valerie and Pasha!

Valerie is the best photographer we’ve ever had a photoshoot with. We really wanted to have someone capture how we eloped. We are truly happy that one of our best friends recommended Valerie as an adventure elopement photographer.

She guided us through the whole process without being imposing, keeping us comfortable to be ourselves.

She asked what our ideal theme for a wedding is and based on that helped us find a dress and location.

During our photoshoot, we never felt that we must follow a set of predetermined poses. It was quite the opposite; we organically enjoyed each other's company while Valerie lead us through the evening. She gave us little tips on where to go and what memories we could share to aid the flow of conversation. Valerie seemed to be focused on escalating our emotions to the fullest; we went on a memory trip to remember how we met each other, and how our first kiss felt. We remembered how we first said I love you and many other precious moments. She was full of compliments for us and it felt that we were all enjoying the process. We shed tears of happiness and gratitude for this magic day.

After the wedding day, Valerie always kept us updated and sent us photos faster than we expected. The pictures turned out unbelievably stunning, they captured the day even better than we remembered it in real life. We can't express enough how good the photoshoot went - Valerie is amazing. We will definitely have many other photoshoots with her.

Me and my husband chose Valerie to be our microwedding photographer due to her candid true-to-life photography style. We didn’t want traditional posed pictures, we were looking for someone who can capture our emotions, feelings and vibes in the moment. Valerie was ready to help us with the timeline, participated in the organization of the event and was ready to go above and beyond to make our day special. We had fun having her as our engagement and wedding photographer. Pictures were released in a timely manner, Valerie was easy to reach and communicative. Will highly recommend her for your future celebration.

Working with Valerie was an absolute pleasure. She helped us remember how we started our relationship. Her unique method of conducting a photo session is similar to something the work of a family therapist.

This photo session was dedicated to the anniversary of our relationship. It was a wonderful and unforgettable gift to our family. Valerie is a high-class professional and photographer with a very kind and soulful heart.

We recommend Valerie to everyone as an excellent photographer and a very positive person.
