ROBERTO VALENZUELA

As you read this, I don't yet know the series of events that brought you and your fiancé together. But that story is continuing as you move closer to your wedding day and I hope you will allow me the honor of recording that event in a way that speaks to the two of you and the life you've shared and will share together.

My own incredible love story that began the day I met my wife Kim. The early chapters of that tale include countless struggles and obstacles that we overcame in order to meet that amazing day at the altar. And from my own special experiences, I feel that I've come to have a unique perspective on matrimony and the day it all begins for both of you. I know there is something very powerful within you—something instinctive that brought the two of you together and made you committed to the idea of sharing a life together. You may not yet understand the significance of what you're undertaking but when I photograph your wedding, the visual experiences that I'll capture will become the foundation for the memories of this, the first day of the rest of your lives together.

I'll find the photographic beauty in every part of your wedding, from the early parts of the day as you get ready, to the pageantry of your ceremony, and into the energy and excitement of your reception. And in between these traditions, I'll capture the many emotions as you and your your family and friends come together. And throughout, I'll be capturing photographs that will help preserve your day and serve as vivid reminders of what you felt every step along the way.

For over a decade I have dedicated myself to the art of wedding photography and to becoming a master of my craft. And every year Kim and I joyfully revisit our wedding day through photographs Those photographs serve as a constant reminder of the importance of what I am creating for the you when I photograph your wedding.

I am based in Beverly Hills, California, but I'll travel anywhere in the world to photograph your wedding.

My Style

In brief, my style has been described in three words: timeless, romantic, and elegant. My goal is to give my couples the most beautiful and artistic photographs of their wedding, while keeping the experience fun, light, and not interrupting the flow of your wedding day. I limit myself to only 20 weddings a year in order to provide the quality, attention to detail, and individualized attention all of my clients demand and deserve.
