mendesphotography approaches photography with a fresh perspective, a distinctive style and we strive to create visually stunning images for evey single one of our clients. We are storytellers and problem solvers. When we are posing you, we work to make you comfortable enough to find the real emotions and expressions within you. And when we are documenting the day, we work to make you comfortable enough to forget we are there.
Valter Mendes -owner/photographer
I'm a husband, a father blessed with two beautiful boys and I love a good burger. I'm a traveler, a terrible singer, and always the last to leave the party. I will always hold to the firm belief that you should never grown up and that laughter is the best medicine.
I pursue everything I do with passion and photography is no exception. I'm self-taught and thank-ful for the many talent people who've inspired the unique way I capture life. I've won a few awards over the years, but I keep a small ego, reminding myself that success, has no shortcuts.
2016 was my 4th full wedding season. When I look back at all the moments my clients have trusted me to creatively capture, it's both exciting and humbling. Photography has been an avenue to preserve fleeting moments for future generations to enjoy, to build lasting friendships with my clients and their families, and for the adventurer in me to share the things I see and do as I explore this beatiful world of ours!
