Paul Valenzuela

I'm a natural light photographer located and based out of Glendale, Arizona.  Most know for my distinct laugh and ability to have fun anywhere; I've been behind the lens for the last 15 years progressing from the world of film into the digital age.  More than half of my life has been capturing the things that leave me in awe; a sunset, a touching family moment, my handsome son's smile or my beautiful wife.  It was seeing those moments that helped me to find my passion, my love, and with that comes my ability to share what I love with you.

Covering all of Arizona, my services encompass pretty much anything you can think of.  From Graduating Senior portraits, Event / Party coverage, Family group sessions, Maternity, Engagements, Weddings, Newborns and Business Professional portraits.  If you don't see a particular package or if you have something in mind, feel free to contact meI'd love to chat with you to get your needs met! 

As for my style, it's quite flexible and laid back.  By the end of the session you get a great creative mix of awesome posed shots while incorporating a candid element to get you all the great moments that define the ones you love.  

All sessions take place at a location of your choice.  Can't think of anywhere?  Don't stress, I've got you covered.  Want to add some color?  We can head up north to the mountains or a botanical garden.  Looking for a vintage touch?  Take your pick of the Valley's numerous Historic Ranches to match your theme.  We can also take advantage of the seasonal changes, which can make for perfect for Holiday cards!  With locations everywhere, your options are endless.


A little more about me:

Having previously worked in the corporate world for a third of my life, I needed to find excitement in what I do.  Grey cubicles and being a slave to meetings just wasn't for me anymore.  Then having my son reinvigorated my focus on photography.  To put it simply it reignited my passion for photography, something I love to do.  Since then, it's hard to find me without my camera.

Now, I've always been a talker so it's not surprising that I like people.  I enjoy meeting someone new and hearing their unique stories.  It's a great experience to go to the places they find interesting and share a moment that encompasses just them.


Thanks for taking the time to read about me, who I am and what I can do for you.
