Valdes Photography

Photography may just be the biggest gift of all...

One that gives you the opportunity to relive special days, moments, connections and relationships again and again… and one that gives generations to come something to hold onto.

I would be honoured to be your photographer, whether it be for your special wedding day, a portrait session or any other occasion. I have a real passion for what I do. I enjoy capturing genuine emotion and those very real, natural and special moments…


What I am all about

I love fun and relaxed weddings!
NZIPP/Epson Iris Awards 2017, Silver & Bronze Awards.
Based in the heart of New Zealand (Waikato).
Married to a Taranaki girl and have an awesome little monkey (My son Ben).

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!
