Meet Imagination by: Jessica Vallia Photography

March 7, 2017

 An interview with Jessica Vallia

              You may or may not know, but Jessica Vallia is a wonderfully talented photographer that services Colorado Springs, CO and surrounding areas.  Last year we got together to trade sessions and I fell in love with her charm and style.  She is sweet and sassy;  She sees and captures the world and her subjects in such a beautiful and unique way.  We are joining forces to offer her brides an awesome boudoir package when they book their wedding with her.  So if you’re getting hitched and want a bridal boudoir session as a grooms gift look no farther.   But first, get to know the lady behind the camera.

Q. What is so special and important about capturing weddings?

         To me capturing weddings is about telling a story. A love story! I want to tell your story in images, which includes every detail, every tear, every burst of laughter in the day. Without these memories captured telling this story would be hard because overtime details fade, even your best memories. With the images to remind yourself how it felt, the memory stays fresh and allows others to share in a moment of your lives.

Q. What are your favorite moments to capture?

        The spontaneous moments! I always let my grooms know that I will focus my attention on them while the bride is walking down the aisle because they are the BEST! There are often tears, laughter, blushing! I want to capture it all. Don’t get me wrong, I get the bride as well, or I have a second shooter focusing their attention on the bride, but for me the groom watching the love of his life joining him at the alter is where it’s at.

Q. How would you describe your style and how did you find it?

         Finding my style took me a few years of shooting everything. After I realized that there were sessions I loved and sessions I really didn’t like I think that is when I found myself. I love shooting weddings and families and all things surrounding “love”. My style is largely capturing a feeling rather than capturing a posed image, even when I do pose my clients. I wait… until they are in the moment, I don’t stop shooting. I shoot everything velvety and warm but mostly I want it to FEEL like what it looks like. If your wedding is in the evening, I want to capture your candle light and the mood. If your wedding is in the morning with sunshine and bright vibrant colors, I want that to match the images I give you. I don’t reproduce the same image with every couple over and over, I want my couples to have a unique experience based on the time and energy they put into each detail of their wedding.

Q. What are your recommendations for brides on their big day?

              Hire a wedding planner! And then make sure that planner is working the day of your wedding! They are amazing people, and even if you want to, you can’t do it all. Second, set up a time line for your day! Don’t wing it, it just makes for a frazzled day by the time you get to your reception. And lastly, this is biased but true, leave 30-45 minutes at the very least for pictures of just the two of you. I say this because so many of my modeling calls for styled brides and grooms are of couples that didn’t dedicate time to pictures on their wedding day, and now they regret it. Even if you have to bump your package, or have fewer images of getting ready, plan your day to have some dedicated time to relax with your new spouse and have those memories for your walls.

Q. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

            Oh wow, in five years career wise I would love to have 3 or 4 associate photographers that can run around and be my eyes when I cannot. Even just this year I am utterly swamped and having a team rather than just myself to make more clients memories would really be my ultimate career goal. I would love to also start offering destination weddings, and be taking more personal vacations with my 4 wonderful children and husband! I have stopped the thinking of putting things off, and so far it is paying off in the best ways!

Miss G’s after dark session – Boudoir Colorado Springs, CO

March 1, 2017

How stunning is Miss G?!  She was one of the first women I photographed after we remodeled and moved studios and I was thrilled to have her back in the studio for another session.  She always brings beautiful outfits, and we have the most interesting and strange conversation haha.  Defiantly get used to seeing her face because she is one of my faves.

I am defiantly going to miss after dark sessions this spring and summer but it gives me something to look forward to for fall.

Mrs. G’s Boudoir – Colorado Springs, CO

March 1, 2017

I was so happy when Mrs. G booked another session with us!  She really is a stunner with such a unique and beautiful look.  You would never know with Mrs. G’s seductive looks but she is hilarious, I don’t think we stopped talking or laughing the whole session.

Amber did a beautiful job with Mrs. G’s styling.  Additionally, most people don’t know this but I don’t shoot clients butt naked lol.  For the shots in the sheets where clients look nude, I removed the underwear, normally a g-string or thong, out of the images in photoshop. ((fun fact))

Miss N’s Boudoir – Colorado Springs, CO

March 1, 2017

Another gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous session ❤  This was Miss. N’s first session with us and she was amazing to work with!  I adore her images.  I have serious fringe bang envy and her outfits and openness made this session one of my favorites to date.

Keara’s styling was perfection.  She gave Miss. N the perfect balance of dark and light.

Miss. M’s After Dark Session – Colorado Springs, CO

March 1, 2017

I love photographing this gorgeous mama of 3.  In the past we couldn’t always share due to her job but now that that has changed I am so happy to be able to share her beautiful images.  Both outfits looked amazing and her styling by Keara was on point.

Mrs. S’s After Dark Session- Boudoir Colorado Springs, CO

March 1, 2017

This was Mrs. S’s 2nd session with me, she is also a close friend of mine so it was a no brainier to have a wine/ shooting night to get these stunning images.  We kept it beautiful but stunning with black and white outfits and let her red lips be the pop of color for this session.  I loved doing Mrs. S’s make up for this session, and already have another shoot planned for warmer weather with. BTW be sure to pick out the shot I took during our midnight pizza break haha.

Mrs. S’s Boudoir Session – Colorado Springs, CO

March 1, 2017

Mrs. S’s was in the studio back in November 2016 and I still love her session so much.  It is such a common misconception that you need to be thin to do a session, and Mrs. S proves that sexy is absolutely not defined by a size.  She rocked her session with grace and seduction, and I loved watched her confidence grow as the session went on.

Amber did a beautiful job on her styling!  If you would like to book a session email Janelle@vitaboudoir.comhttp://www.Vitaboudoir.com
