"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving; 

What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things,

long after you have forgotten everything."

I'm a traveler. I've been close to 20 countries and can't wait for my next adventure!

I'm a storyteller. I majored in journalism and love that I get to tell people's stories through imagery.

I'm a cheerleader. (In college - Go Ducks & in life!) I will dance with you, laugh with you, and cry with you. I get overly excited by a simple glance or moment that can't be explained, only seen and felt.

I'm a best friend. I've been in more than my share of weddings (it was always my dream to be a flower girl and yet it never happened. 27 Dresses, however, did.) so I know the drill on all levels - My "Oh-Sh*t Kit" stays with me at all times! 🙂

I take a lifestyle, journalist approach and having been an actress, dancer and model I know what it's like to be in front of the camera. I can direct, pose and joke with you to create a fun, laid-back atmosphere to bring out the true YOU.

I LOVE love! My favorite thing in the world to capture is people in love. There's this incredible energy that surrounds a couple in love that can't be contained and I can't get enough of! It gives me butterflies and a "7-Up nose" (you know that feeling you get when you feel like you're going to cry...) I want to be your art director, faux maid of honor, your cheerleader and you better believe I will probably share a couple dances with you.

Valorie Darling Photography I've always loved taking pictures and even more, capturing a genuine emotion and real moment. It's truly incredible to be a part of and document those moments. I can't express how amazing it feels to...be the first to photograph a newborn, knowing my image will be the one that announces the new addition to the family. To capture the pure joy of months of training and hard work paying off as an athlete achieves their goal. To hear that the headshot I took got them the audition that booked their first major role. Nothing is more exciting to me than being a part of these special moments.
