Valdes! Where does that name come from you ask?

Chile! Yes, I’m a Chilean, a very proud latino.
Don’t worry. Yes I can speak English, I’ve been in New Zealand for over 11 Years with my Kiwi wife; I won’t go and have a siesta under a tree on your wedding day, and I will arrive on time! 🙂

I’m for happy times, relaxed times, a bit of craziness, lots of fun, and providing kind, encouraging support.

I do wedding photography because I love it, love capturing the emotion and being around people having a great time!. I’ll be making sure to don’t forget we are all there to have a fun and enjoy all the hard work done towards one of the most important days in your life.

What they are saying...

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!!

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!

I really believe that you get the best photos when you can simply be yourself.
