Thank you for your interest in my studio. My name is Val Franklin, and I've been a professional photographer since April, 2002.
For many years I owned a busy wedding photography studio. I had worked with over 700 brides and loved photographing weddings. But after 8+ years I needed a change. I realized that when the only two songs you hear in bed at night are the "Chicken Dance" and "YMCA" you know it's time to move on, so I sold my business in 2010 and took some time off from the photography business.
The one thing I truly missed, however, was the feeling that I made brides feel even more beautiful with the photos I captured for them. I LOVED my time alone with these women. Every woman is beautiful to me -- it doesn't matter their age, height, weight, etc. So when I decided to get back into photography, I realized that women should be my main focus.
