  • Welcome to Jean Valentin Photography

    Welcome to Jean Valentin Photography. We have been creating beautiful memories for brides and families in Philadelphia area for over 10 years. We hope you enjoy looking through our past images. We look forward to hearing from you to create your new memories and further family heirlooms.

While we mostly cover social events, we are frequently contacted by professionals for their corporate headshots. Linkedin did a survey with recruiters and found out that accounts that have a profile picture get more clicks compared to the ones that don’t have one. And it makes sense to have a professional image instead of some snapshot with bad lighting (or just picked from a vacation image).

Monica contacted us because she wanted a professional headshot that will be featured on her company’s website. We normally take several images, with different clean backgrounds and even different outfits. Our goal is to try to capture who you really are. Monica ended up selecting two images from the session. They happen to be my favorites as well since they really portray the warmth and kindness I felt when I met Monica.

I especially love this portrait of Sharon by the window. It encapsulates the elegance and distinction you see when you meet Sharon.

And Matthew was right on par with her.

Welcome back to the second installment of Dana and Brendan’s wedding at Springfield Country Club: the reception. As you can see, the place looked beautiful. I especially love the ice sculpture with their initials and the heart.

As you probably noticed from the previous post, they had a large bridal party … and a big entrance was only fitting.

As soon as I walked in Springfield Country Club and saw this wall, I knew I had to use it for a portrait of the beautiful couple.

And now, it’s Dana’s turn to open her gift from Brendan. I don’t know what he wrote, but you can see Dana trying to hold back the tears.

And the other (better?) half of the bridal party along with the beautiful bride.
