We had decided to have a surprise wedding and the time we spent waiting for guests to arrive for the big reveal was nerve-wracking. Through it all Valerie was calm and patient. When the big reveal came she caught some of the most important photos of the whole day in the most beautiful way… I work in the wedding industry and have seen many weddings and many vendors that make or break your wedding. Too many people cut cost where it matters most. Take the time, and invest in your photographer and choose the best- which is Valerie Thompson Photography. She will invest in you and present you with honest, emotional, raw, beautiful and timeless photos. I have come out of this process with wonderful photos that I will treasure for a lifetime, our photographer for life, and a new friend. Cheers to Val for being amazing.Read More
Valerie was simply incredible. I searched all over online finding a photographer with the feel that I wanted for our engagement photos. She was eager to help and excited to hear about our story. She guided us on how to prepare for the session and she made us feel comfortable like we were just being ourselves. On the day of the session, we hit a lot of traffic getting to the photo site and she was completely understanding and even extended our session so we could capture the awesome sunset lighting. Her photos have turned out amazingly and we still get lots of compliments on them. We'll cherish these photos for years to come. Thanks, Valerie!Read More
Valerie is AMAZING!!! My fiancé and I moved to Dallas a few months ago and found Valerie on the knot! Being that we were new to the area, she gave great recommendations and made everything so easy and seamless. Our photos turned out perfect- we really feel like Valerie captured “us!” She also got our pictures back to us in three days!! and all were absolutely perfect! We highly recommend Valerie!Read More
One of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding is having Valerie be apart of it! From the engagement pictures, bridals and of course of our big day she did not skip a beat and nailed it to a tee! The great thing about Valerie, besides her insane talent, is she truly cares about her customers and making each part of the experience memorable. I have already recommended Valerie to a great friend and my friend couldn't thank me enough after seeing the pictures from her wedding. I really could go on and on and on about how much I adore her but really just look at her work it speaks for itself!
P.S.- One of our wedding pictures Valerie took got featured on Martha Stewart Wedding... She is the real deal people and you would be lucky to have her be apart of your big day!
Honestly, I only have great things to say about this woman. I was the last of my good girlfriends and sisters to get married. Every single one that had a wedding complained about their wedding photographers or they were wishing they had a professional instead of their uncle. For a bride, the day goes by in the blink of an eye. I reminded myself to be present during many moments, but it went by so quickly. However, through Valerie's beautiful photos of the night, I get to relive this night with loved ones as often as I want to. It is a lot of trust to put into someone, to forever capture a night you spent so much time and money and heart on. You can't go wrong with Valerie. Best decision I made for my wedding, hands down. She is organized, a wonderful communicator and a true friend throughout the entire process. Thank you, Valerie!Read More
If you want to have fun you HAVE to book Valerie! She was absolutely amazing and sweet. My fiance and I have never taken any sort of professional photos and we were very anxious about taking the pictures. We've taken our engagement pictures and already cant wait to work with her again for our wedding photos. If you want unique gorgeous photos with an amazing photographer Valerie Thompson Photography is the way to go!Read More
Valerie was the best! I found her through a mutual friend and fell in love with her style. She was quick to respond and so great to work with. My husband and I had a lot of last minute changes and she was so flexible with us. She made myself, my husband, and our families feel so comfortable around the camera. I couldn’t recommend her enough and brag on our wedding photos constantly!Read More
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Valerie! We planned our wedding in three weeks and after a recommendation from a friend, we 100% lucked out that Valerie was available to shoot on our day. We had a small, immediate family only gathering and Valerie was the perfect, unobtrusive and lovely addition to our day. We met after my husband and I said our I do’s for the first time, and she was just as pleasant in person as she was in the conversations we had leading up to the event. Her turn around time was quick and she went above and beyond to edit a picture of my Dad and I in time for a Father’s Day gift, just days after the wedding. We are in love with every shot and can’t figure out which to frame! A joy from beginning to end, we can’t say enough about Valerie.Read More
When I decided to get married on an island, in the middle of a lake, in the middle of the desert... I was sure we wouldn't be able to find a photographer. Luckily, Valerie as adventurous as she is talented. We have stunning photos of everything and everyone (before, during, and after the wedding). She was incredibly supportive, creative and just a wonderful person to spend time with. I recommend her whole heartedly.Read More
