Welcome to Robert Valdes Photography and Videography. I am a San Francisco wedding professional with over 25 years of shooting and post production experience. I specialize in Organic and Natural Imagery.

My work is often described as "Whimsical and Unexpected" as well as "Powerful and Emotional". The magic happens behind the camera, as I interpret your special and once in a lifetime moments with my unique, spontaneous style of photojournalistic photography.

I so look forward to hearing all about your special day. Let's set up a time to chat and hopefully meet! I offer Voice, Text, Skype, Facetime or in person consultations at a time that is convenient for you.

San Francisco Wedding Photography & Video

As I am based in Marin County, I often shoot in San Francisco and Marin. However, my typical service area has me shooting weddings in the Napa and Sonoma Wine Countries, as well as the South Bay and East Bay. I also shoot weddings in Sacramento and further North.

My website features stunning images based around Venue categories. This will give you a better understanding of my persistent style and enables you to see complete events from my perspective. I feel this better serves you, the potential client, rather than showing only a few selected images from each wedding based around the sequences of the day [pre wedding, details, ceremony, portraits, reception, etc], as is typical with most wedding photography sites.

My experience taking wedding photos and videos at many of the wedding venues and locations in Northern California makes me a great choice as your trusted Wedding Photographer of the San Francisco Bay Area. I have worked with, and know personally many of the wedding planners and banquet managers at some of the top San Francisco Bay Area wedding venues.

I offer services to encompass many lifetime, milestone events. Contact me if you are planning the following. Wedding, Engagement Session, Quinceanera, Anniversary, Cottilion, Sweet 16 Debutante Ball, Birthday Party and Celebration of Life.

I work primarily in San Francisco, Napa & Sonoma Wine Country, San Jose, Sacramento, Marin County and beyond. I also travel for destination weddings worldwide, as well as for more local destination weddings such as Sacramento, Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.
