Where do I begin …. one of the things that made this wedding special (aside from the couple, of course) was that I had the pleasure to work with a lot of wedding professionals that I already knew (and some of them are good friends).

We started with the guys, as usual. Everybody looked so sharp …
A sign of the times …
And a picture with the “baby” …
We then moved to the girls place…
I love the girls expressions as Alison put on the dress … mesmerized …
Dad trying to prevent Alison from crying …
…. Unsuccessfully ….
A very emotional moment …
Mr. & Mrs. Richard Reynolds ….
We then went to Valley Forge National Park for some fun pictures … One with the Rolls Royce Limo
The reception was at The Waterford in the Radisson Hotel …
The beautiful wedding cake …
The First Dance …
Parents dance … it was very emotional
Rian and Brian from Eventions Productions did an awesome job at creating a beautiful ambiance and keeping everybody on the dance floor …
I normally end with a picture or two of the couple. This time I wanted to end on a different note. I am very fortunate to work with couples that appreciate photography and don’t view me as just another vendor.
From the time they secure my services to the time the wedding comes, we create a very strong relationship. This picture was prompted by Alison and I really love it (Bart who helped me throughout the day took this picture; thank you Bart).
Alison was going “I love you Valentin” … I was thinking “Your husband is right next to us; I don’t want my ass kicked” 🙂 … I love you right back Alison.
Thank you guys for allowing me to be part of your special day and for the great memories.
Karen Pecora - Val – Your pictures are beautiful and your comments are so “right on” Alison and Ricky are a GREAT couple who will treasure the memories for decades to come. By the looks of the few you have showed here I can predict we will all be sitting around drinking wine gushing in tears when we see the pictures and again when she has the finished album. Thanks so much to you and Bart. It was fun and wonderful all at the same time. You are so far from… Just another vendor! Thanks for taking such good care of my family!!
Valentin - Thank you Karen. It was truly a pleasure photographing Alison and Rick’s wedding.
Dawn Read - LOVE LOVE LOVE the pics – so far! Valentin, you have an absolute eye for the great shots….a true talent! Can’t wait to see more.
Favorite shots….coming out of the church, Dad fanning Bride’s tears, and of course, my cool guy in the shades!
Valentin - Thank you Dawn. He looked cool (and played the part really well).
Alison & Ricky - Valentin, we had a WONDERFUL time with you on our wedding day. We could not be happier with these teaser pics and can’t wait to see what is yet to come!!! Thank you for being so patient with me and braving the heat to get great shots. We love you! See you when we get back from Costa Rica! Karen~ Thank you for referring us to Valentin!!!
