Bella and Ryan


featured in

Bella and Ryan’s mountain wedding in Aspen was awash in vibrant fall colors, but with a distinctly modern vibe. Coming from different religious backgrounds, they wanted to include a little bit of both into the day. Together, they stomped on glass to honor Bella’s Jewish traditions, and included Celtic prayers for Ryan and his family.

"Valorie’s energy is like a beam of light. Wherever she is her positivity and genuine care for her clients shines through. Valorie’s talent for capturing pure emotion and ability to produce the entire wedding “story" through images sets her work apart and has catapulted her into a leader in the event industry. She is our “unicorn" of photographers; talented, kind and professional. We know if we have her on our team, our clients are ensured to have beautiful memories captured to last a lifetime"
