Dan & Jayne’s Motorbike Engagement Session – New London, CT

by on Jan.07, 2016, under Wedding & Engagement

Hi guys,

Welcome back to the Valdorama Blogosphere. Wow, it’s been a while! Part of the thrill of owning and maintaining a blog is sometimes being surprised by automatic software updates and the resulting incompatibilities. When I originally started writing this post I noticed a bug that had to do with the way the images were being displayed. The blog looked broken, and let me tell you, I wasn’t happy. It forced me to go undercover, and not add new content for quite some time – until I finally found a solution. I am happy to announce that the blog is now fully functional, bug free and the images are all here in their original glory. As you can imagine, I did quite a few absolutely beautiful shoots over the past weeks and months, so I will be adding a lot of new posts in the coming days. Yaaaay, your pal Val is back!

Let’s now go back to what really matters:

Meet Dan & Jayne – the happiest couple I have photographed! These two are so much in love with each other, it is beyond belief!

When we first met, I already knew Dan, but I knew nothing about Jayne. As usual, I was curious to hear what would make her tick. She mentioned a couple of things, but what really stood out was her love for motorcycles, which Dan also shared…. No, excuse me, Dan is absolutely obsessed with bikes! So my natural response was “Allrighty then, I think I know how we are going to theme this shoot. We will do a motorbike shoot!”

Imagine their initial disbelief – the guys just wanted an engagement session! But that quickly turned into major excitement. What could have been any better for them!? We did throw in some “normal” pictures at the beginning – just to warm it up. But boy, I think we really hit it when we threw the bikes in the picture. Don’t know about you, but I am wildly excited. And I sincerely hope you enjoy looking at these images as much as I did working on them.


– Yours truly,

Mary & Tai’s Engagement Session – Harkness Park, Waterford, CT

by on Jun.23, 2015, under Wedding & Engagement

Hey guys,

It is such a pleasure to introduce to you Mary & Tai who are getting married later this summer. It will be an stunning traditional Vietnamese wedding like nothing you have seen – and, needless to say, I am so so excited for them!

Mary is the kind of bride who puts an incredible amount of thought and effort into every detail in her wedding – from the hand made accessories  – check out the umbrella and those Swarovski crystals on her veil and her bouquet (she did that herself!) – to the very last photo we took. A while ago we brainstormed about a location for the engagement session (yes, the title didn’t lie – this IS an engagement session). We were thinking about going to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden in New York City, and capturing the blooming cherry trees – but unfortunately the full bloom this year was way earlier than what we expected – and Mary’s dress was not ready at this point. Later on after rethinking the location we chose Harkness Park. And I am so glad we did – it offered all the photo ops we wanted – and then some. We lucked out and, along with those colorful azaleas and the amazing Japanese Maple, we found a cherry tree that was still blooming. Yay!

This shoot is not about the location though. It is about the love Mary and Tai share and how beautiful and happy they look together. The results? Well, you let me know what you think.

Last, but definitely not least, Mary happens to have her birthday today, so let’s all comment below and wish her a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May this one be the best birthday you’ve had Mary! Cheers!

Shereese & Jeremy’s Hartford CT Engagement Session

by on Jun.02, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Hey gang,

I am super excited to show you the engagement session of another happy couple I recently photographed – Shereese and Jeremy!

Their story started in Hartford, where they  have so many sweet memories from, so it was a natural choice to make when we were chatting about this session.

We started shooting around the State Capitol, and went on to Downtown Hartford to jazz it up when the sun went down. Hartford looks absolutely stunning at dusk from the bridge above the Connecticut River, and we really wanted to capture that vibe in our photos.

Regardless of the backdrop though, what looks much more beautiful than anything else, is Shereese and Jeremy’s love – they way they talk to each other, they way they walk together, the glow in their faces when they are together. And to be honest, with a couple like them, things just flow by themselves – it was so natural and easy to photograph them. I could do that every day and be excited and looking forward to each session every single time.

Take a look at what we got.

BIG hugs from me, I can’t wait to show you more!!!

Beth & Kevin’s Boston MA Engagement Session

by on May.29, 2014, under Wedding & Engagement

Hey there my friends,

I have the pleasure to introduce an incredibly cute and happy couple – Beth and Kevin!

Trying to dodge the rain in the forecast we met a day in advance of what we had originally planned and hit the lottery with the weather – we could not have wished for anything better. We spent an incredible day  in Downtown Boston taking pictures together, and I am so incredibly excited with the way everything came out! We took so many great images in and around the Boston Public Library, Copley Square, Trinity Church, Boston Common, Boston Opera House – it was really hard for me to pick my favs for the blog  (no worries though, all of them will very soon be available on Beth and Kev’s gallery for review by friends and relatives). Check them out.

Last, but by no means least, I know this post comes a few days late, but I still hope it can still be a great surprise present to our future bride :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETH! CHEERS  – and may you enjoy and treasure your relationship with Kev every single moment from now on. I am super excited for both of you!
