  • Welcome to Jean Valentin Photography

    After serving families in the tri-state area for over 17 years, we decided to stop taking any new engagements.

    I personally am honored that you entrusted me capturing your intimate moments throughout the years. Be it when you started your family, or grow your family and any other moments in between. It was a pleasure meeting all of you and my life feels more enriched by it.

    I will keep this site up for an indefinite time and I will continue to update it with personal projects. This way you can still view and share your images and I get to share my personal photographic endeavors. I hope you’ll still stop by from time to time and say hello.

    From the bottom of my heart, a sincere THANK YOU!

This time of year, many of the previous year wedding albums arrive. I always look forward to receiving the final album. There is something about it that gives me goose bumps. This is a family heirloom that many generations to come will hold in their hands and look at a snapshot in time about their parents, grandparents, great grandparents…

The main album…

Thank you Marisa and Michael. It was an honor and a pleasure photographing your wedding.

After many complaints from my wife that I don’t take enough pictures of my sons, I decided to take advantage of the sunny day and went out to take some pictures of my little guy.

My son goes to the River of Life martial arts and wellness center. It’s a great place where kids (and adults) learn not only how to defend themselves, but to also show respect for others.

Showing the technique to the students:

Applying the technique (sort of; they should have pay attention earlier):

It’s not as bad as it looks:

Every year my son and I made a tradition to go and see the Philly Car Show (I like the cars, he likes the car simulators).

Some old models are still keeping their appeal:

That doesn’t mean that the new ones don’t look as good and sexy:
