My friend recommended I speak to Valent. I was never comfortable in front of the camera, so I was very apprehensive, certain that I wouldn't know what to do, how to smile, or what to wear. The first time I spoke to Valent he reassured me that I would be fine. He called me before the shoot and generously spent an hour talking with me on the phone in a discovery process - not only was he taking the trouble to understand what was important to me but he also helped me tap into my own essence and what makes me tick.
That gave me the confidence to trust that Valent would with be able to capture the 'real me'. Valent made me feel comfortable, relaxed and even confident from the minute I arrived at his studio. He guided me through the whole process with patience, encouragement and genuine interest in who I am.
My favourite part of the experience was the ease with which Valent offered simple easy to follow directions about how to stand and hold myself intermingled with a relaxed conversational discussion on genuinely meaningful topics. And of course seeing the finished product up on the big screen in his office!
Thank you Valent for doing what you did to give me the confidence to put my best face forward and for making the whole process easy for me to just be me in front of the camera.
Valent is not only a highly professional photographer, he is also a deep-thinking individual with a genuine interest in and care for the people who entrust him to capture their truest essence in a single moment, for perpetuity.
Valent, I'd say that it was an easy 5/5 for me! It was a pretty hectic day as one would expect and I'm thankful that you were able to manage through and give ideas for the shots at all the places around uni.
The experience was great fun, it was very smooth, the process was easy, the correspondence was good, the photos looked great! Thank you!
It was fantastic! It took some effort getting to the studio but it was well worth it. Valent is warm, friendly and professional. He made me feel at ease and gave direction when needed. This shoot was one of the most fun I've had and the photos were amazing! Valent is wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend him! :)
It took some effort getting to the studio after the birth as we had some complications and had to go back to the hospital a few days after initially coming home with our daughter. My wife almost didn't want to be in the photos because she was so tired. But we are so happy we made it in for the photoshoot!
When we look at our artwork on the walls, we remember how our daughter was at that age, and the amazing moments Valent was able to capture which we will cherish forever. I definitely recommend making that effort going in the first week after birth. It was so worth it!
Valent is an amazing photographer. We were so happy with the photos he took and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone looking for a portrait photographer. He provides a relaxing environment and really captures the essence of your personality in the photos.
We came here for family photos of our newborn and our first child. We didn't know what to expect as we hadn't done this before.
The experience had a really homely feel and very professional. We really felt comfortable in the environment. It brought out the personality of all the kids and ourselves. The end result was we were really happy with the photos and it really reflects our personalities and that of our family. I don't think we can ask for more.
It was a good overall experience.
We came for a baby shoot with our 4 month old. It was a really fun experience. We went from Valent first taking us around to the studio and showing us the place. It was very professional and we could see a lot of samples of the kind of photos we could get.
After that we came in to do an actual photo shoot session. On the day we arrived, Valent made us feel really comfortable. Valent had a lot of good ideas, the session actually went a lot faster than we initially thought!
When we came in for the photos, they were really awesome. I think they turned out beyond our expectations to be honest. And now looking at the final photos the print quality is really really good and we're really happy with them.
We had a very relaxed session. Valent was exceptional with Thomas. You could tell that he's a parent himself, the way he dealt with him, and got him to settle better than us.
The approach to the photography session was not just about taking a photo of him or us, it was more about kind of trying to capture our relationship and the connections we have with him. It was a really positive experience and hopefully something we come back to more and more.
