Valerie Durham has been playing with cameras since she was 10 but her interests grew stronger while being homeschooled. An only child with a passion to tell a story, to remind people of a special time in their lives and help bring everyone together and keep one another engaged with whats in front of them. She began attending College for Photography in 2007 and she's grateful for the friends and opportunities that have risen with that experience. She's described as a very personal and laid back photographer, you'll be made instantly comfortable.

Pai Photography has been operating since 2005 in Southern California. With over 100 weddings under my belt, I've become a wedding ninja and make sure I capture moments you might have missed while in the wedding daze.

Pai Photography is more than Weddings. While Weddings are my specialty nowadays, I also shoot Headshots, Engagements, Gender Reveals, Maternity, Birthdays, Family Sessions and used to exclusively shoot Concerts and Business Events.

When Booking a Wedding with Pai Photography
I always suggest to meet, if you're not in the San Diego - Los Angeles area then skype is recommended.
Getting along with your photographer is #1 in my book (If I can cheer you up and keep the stress down during your wedding then it shows in the photos)
Sometimes photographers moonlight as wedding planners as well since we have to keep track of time. Let's go over the timeline and see what works best for you and discuss your photography needs and questions.

Engagement Shoot Locations 
All shoots last roughly 1hr 30mins and there's no travel charge within San Diego County (there is a travel charge for gas expenses only otherwise)
