Meet Annabel Valencia
Professional Oklahoma Wedding & Portrait Photographer
What I Believe
I believe it’s fun to walk in the down-pouring rain, so long as someone special is at your side.
I believe that new beginnings are open doors, even if another door shuts.
I believe that you are a new legacy.
I believe that when two families come together because two people fell in love, that is the best gumbo you could make.
I believe that bravery is not a lack of fear, but action in spite of it and there’s nothing like finding someone brave enough to give you their entire heart.
I believe classy will always be in style.
I believe you’ll never get back lost time, so enjoy the people you love as if it’s the last minute ever.
I believe that time spent together is always more valuable than money spent.
Let me get right to the point.
I'll be the only vendor you'll have whose job isn't finished after your wedding day and I think that's pretty cool.
That let's us build a relationship that you won't have with your other wedding pros.
We'll be spending a lot of time together. And that time together let's us make the most breath taking photos that you've ever seen of yourself.
That is my favorite part of it all.
After you watch this short video you'll know a little bit more about me and understand why that's so important to me.
First Generation Immigrant & Proud American
I was born in Cali, Colombia. My mom and I came to the United States by ourselves. I know what it's like to leave behind everything and every one and start over. But it's my mom that made the difficult sacrifices. She wanted to make a better life in this great country of America. And that's exactly what she did.
My mom divorced my dad when I was young. I don't remember him. But I had what seemed like piles of black and white photos he had taken of me. When I looked at those photos it was like looking through his eyes. And that's where my love of photography began.
I know what it's like to hold an old photo and be flooded with emotion.
Bachelor of Fine Arts
I studied fine art with a concentration in photography at Louisiana State University. Geaux Tigers!
A New Legacy
Now I'm starting my own legacy with my own family. And so are you.
And classic photos are an amazing part of that legacy.
You already know that you want beautiful wedding photos and you know it's a big decision. You want everything to be perfect. Choosing a professional wedding photographer can be intimidating for sure. It's not like you do this often.
I'll be there from the beginning of your wedding planning, to your engagement session, on your wedding day, and even after that when we get together to view your beautiful images.
I'll guide you through the whole process, give you tips on posing and expert advice along the way. YOU WON'T GET THAT WHEN YOU PUT AN AMATEUR IN CHARGE OF YOUR WEDDING IMAGES.
Woah, this is exciting! Let's get started!
Scheduling a meet and greet at my private home studio will help you decide if you want me to be part of your wedding team. You'll get a feel for my personality and style. You'll get a close up look at the products and wedding services that are best for you.
If you're really busy we can do this over the phone but I don't recommend it. You won't get all the benefits of meeting in person.
