What they are saying...


It’s hard to put into words how much Rodrigo meant to us as part of our special day in Nov 2017. His talent and creativity, his fun, easy and caring personality and having him guide us through the best day of our lives was more than we could have hoped for. We formed a great bond with Rodrigo straight away. He is genuine, has a great sense of humour and worked so well with a wide range of people including those who don’t like to have their pictures taken! Looking at our stunning photos is like reliving our day. The small things, the big things, the expressions, the gestures are all there, all our precious memories. The shots were so candid and natural which was really important for us. Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly and being amazing to work with.

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!
