JVP Seniors in Compass Magazine

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

Once again, I was asked to photograph some of my high school seniors for The West End Compass magazine. Various stores at The Shops at West End provided the clothing, hair styles and makeup, and I provided the photography. It was a really fun experience, and something I look forward to doing again next year.

Another award for Jesse Valley from Viewbug

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

This time a photo taken with my iPhone 4s  (“Spoon Bridge and Cherry”) was selected as one of the judge’s favorite photos. I have been very pleased with the quality of the photos my iPhone takes, and often use it for this type of photography. You can see the original link here.

Jesse Valley Photography in Compass magazine

In June, I photographed some of my high school age clients for The West End Compass magazine. Various stores at The Shops at West End provided the clothing, hair styles and makeup, and I provided the photography. It was a really fun experience, and something I look forward to doing again next year.

Sarah + Vic’s Wedding by Jesse Valley Photography

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Photographing Sarah and Vic’s wedding was a lot of fun. It was a hot and steamy day (so much so that my camera lens fogged up when we left the reception), but they were great sports as we trekked through downtown Minneapolis for some last pictures. I always love it when I get to do some special portraits with the bride and groom alone, and I know it is memorable for them too. The other fun thing from this wedding was doing my first PhotoBooth (which you can read about by clicking here).

Fine Art Photo: Dome-less Metrodome

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

It is so weird to see the Minneapolis skyline without the inflated dome of the Metrodome, which collapsed under heavy snow.
