Hands down, Valdes Photography is the perfect wedding photographer to have! Prior to our wedding we discussed our ideas with Rodrigo with what we wanted captured at our wedding. We wanted him to document the day capturing “moments” we might miss and he did exactly that except better! The moments we missed on our wedding day are all in the photographs we now have; hugs between family and friends, laughing, family enjoying themselves, friends taking photos and many precious candid moments of us when we weren’t looking at the camera. He made it easy for us to feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera and had so much fun creating shots at the same time. I strongly recommend Valdes Photography to EVERYONE and promise you will be in awe with his work!

We made the right decision to have Rodrigo as our wedding photographer (2016). He really knew how to anticipate candid moments, and capture them beautifully. He edits tastefully to draw out rather than distract from the image, as can be seen in his portfolio. We are absolutely thrilled with the photos we have to remember our big day by. This combined with his friendliness and professionalism means we can confidently recommend Rodrigo to anyone!

Beautiful work, beautiful photography! The rush of a wedding can be quite strenuous, busy and time consuming, no doubt – there was a lot of patience, preparation and creativity behind Valdes Photography which made it such an enjoyable experience!! Cant imagine anyone being so focused & collectively calm, it was a relief to have someone with confidence in their work and was straight to the point with getting the job done. Everything we wanted in a photographer, the way we requested it to be is just the way it turned out! Valdes Photography caught the best moments of our special day and we are forever grateful for all that was done. So much style and talent was involved which definitely gave everyone something to talk about and the amount of compliments we received was touching, we owe it all to Valdes Photography. Thank you for being so consistent, for making us comfortable and for being great company in the process! We absolutely LOVED our pictures!
