Valeria is our Chilean super spirited fun artist!!!
“Just enjoy the moment, love your partner and I’ll take care of the rest…”
This is what Valeria for sure will tell you when you ask what you must do in front of the camera.
Formerly, Val worked in Chile as a publicist as creation and the envisioning / promotion of art has always been an important part of her life. When she discovered photography, this prompted her to leave her former life as a publicist and move to Mexico to pursue a life behind the camera.
“I love being reminded that I make photos of people who later will revisit these moments and remember the smiles they shared together as they traveled the world to discover new places and have new adventures together. If you think about it, poetically, it is an exquisite mission” – Val
Val, as his friends call her, has been completely dedicated to photography for almost a decade. She sees life with a positive outlook in that she witnesses more smiles than long faces in her life and she loves to think from that point of view, her dream job is chasing love stories and capturing the decisive moments with that unique expression where everyone is having fun!
She loves music and could not live without it! Reading is another of her great loves, as well as the life outdoors and the Caribbean Sea…sometimes even playing the guitar! She has a huge sense of humor and energy to accompany her uplifting spirit. At any moment, she can be seen dancing in public like nobody’s watching.
From South America to del Sol, she is happy and excited about her new mission to “Find the Unicorn” which refers to not just using the best technique, but looking for that unmistakeable layer, that unique element that can’t be replicated. That is what it is all about, making unique images that make us think about the creative composition and not just the simple 2 dimensional frame.
Here are a few of Valeria’s favorite weddings:
