Rodrigo was such a pleasure to work with. We were so amazed with the photos he captured! From the very start of the engagement shoot he made us feel comfortable and at ease around him and the camera. So glad we chose to have an engagement shoot as we are both not very comfortable around the camera. The shoot gave us an opportunity to get to know Rodrigo and get comfortable being in front of a camera. We are so excited to meet up with him again for our wedding day and capture some more amazing pictures!

Rodrigo was such a delight to have as our photographer for our wedding. We couldn’t believe the photos he captured, that we were blown away. My husband and I were beyond pleased with every photo and most of all his attitude and support on the day, he is far more than just a photographer. He was open to any ideas and is worth every penny. I remember when I got the first preview of the photos and it felt like I was living the excitement of the day again he captured it so well. What more can i say, he’s absolutely amazing and my guests found him hilarious and fun 🙂 We would recommend him to everyone! Thank you Rodrigo, we wish you the best!

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!
