A boutique experience

Every person has unique tastes and photography goals. The boutique experience is about getting to know each client personally, offering custom services when needed, and earning your trust.

Starting with a consultation, I ask thought-provoking questions to help me understand what makes your story unique. You also get session planning guidance and wardrobe recommendations. I believe that if you look great, you feel great - and that always translates into great photos!

Come session time, get ready for a fun and outgoing experience. You will get guided posing instructions as well as prompts to create authentic candid moments! Sessions start at 45 minutes. Galleries are delivered in 2-3 weeks through a beautiful and shareable online gallery.

Printing services are available.

“I met Valerie through a posting on Facebook. She came to Hawaii....[a]nd what can I say, she absolutely went above and beyond!! She is very communicative, friendly, Positive, outgoing and just a blessing to be around. From the first meeting via video chat to the first meeting in person, till the actual session at the beach. Everything was so well planned. She puts so much effort in understanding what you want, communicating what...will look great and just mentoring you throughout the session.”


“Recommending Valerie to all my friends and family! She goes above and beyond to get the perfect shots! She did my maternity and family/newborn photos. The sessions were fun and stress free. Valerie takes the time to know you and share ideas before each session which was really helpful because I had no clue where to start! I can't thank her enough for all her help! I'm definitely using Valerie in the future!”

“I had a wonderful experience with Tilted Crown Photography. I had a photo shoot in old Sacramento. It was the best experience I have ever had. Valerie, the photographer was so patient, so creative, and so much fun. She took her time, we spent about 3hours and she never stopped taking photos of me. She directed my poses and even let me get creative. She is a gem! she was cheering me on and made me feel like a model. She listened and designed the perfect album i wanted. Thank you for the amazing experience.”

“100,000 stars!!! Valerie is by far the BEST photographer I have ever worked with. She shows up with a warm smile, and a contagiously positive personality. You immediately feel comfortable in front of the camera. She captures moments that other photographers do not; her perspective is so unique, and she truly focuses on what matters to you and your family. Her specialization in candids and action/movement shots made me actually show my real, big silly smile, and the photographs came out more than perfect.”

“Valerie, you captured our very special graduation moments & We CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH for your amazing work & our lovely pictures. We really LOVED every single photo and YOU ARE THE BEST! We wish you nothing but the very best in your career & future endeavors. We really hope that someday we do another photo session with you.
Thank you so much again for everything, working with you was so much fun and we really appreciate everything you did for us.”
