"Helen exceeded our wildest dreams! She was totally on board with our crazy adventure photoshoot idea in Yosemite. She did an extraordinary amount of pre-shoot diligence, came up with lots of beautiful potential locations for us and helped us with everything from attire to poses. Helen’s sense of humor, relatable personality, and professionalism shines through, putting us at ease and making for a wonderful day. She let us see the photos almost immediately, and followed up with many more amazing photos shortly thereafter. We had a blast working with Helen and would absolutely recommend her. We can guarantee this won’t be our last photoshoot with her!"

"Helen did an incredible job. From keeping the atmosphere light and easy with her great sense of humor to helping pick the perfect location and poses for the occasion, she was incredibly professional and fun to work with the entire time. And best of all, the pictures turned out amazing. She graciously gave us a preview of pictures almost immediately after the shoot and followed up with many more great shots not long after. I highly recommend choosing Helen!"

"We are so happy with our engagement photos! Taking the photos was so much fun, you see Valera Wedding photos on Instagram where the couples are laughing in every shot and that’s how it felt during the shoot. None of the photos are staged and we could just be ourselves. Helen knows how to capture the moments where a couple is at ease and comfortable. At times you forget that someone is taking your photo. I don’t consider myself to be photogenic, but all of our engagement photos look amazing and it’s all thanks to Helen!"
Mariah & Matthew
"Helen is so wonderful! Her infectious smile puts you at ease when you’re taking photos. Especially if you don’t know what you’re doing like me. She is patient and gave me good advice but also took my ideas into consideration for what I wanted in my engagement photos. Can’t recommend her enough! You will leave your session with a smile on your face because of her personality and professional work!"
