Meet the Photographer
Hello Gorgeous !

I am so happy you made it here, because you are going to LOVE this!

So often we think of Boudoir photography as a thing we need to do for someone else. Like a spouse or significant other.

Here at Urban Couture we like to encourage you to do it for YOU first. We offer a fun, safe space for you to connect with and celebrate yourself!

Fill out the form below and let's have a chat and get you started! You are SO worth it!

Talk soon!

Portrait Artist

Here's What Clients are Saying

"What a great experience. Val made me feel comfortable, pretty, and made sure she got the shots I wanted. She is fun to work with and I laughed a lot. The pictures are beautiful."

-Danielle G.


"You brought out facets of me that I rarely share with others. You re-introduced me to the woman I am, not just the (mom, worker, friend, etc). I thought I’d gravitate toward the group shots with my daughter (and they are fully wonderful – our essence) but it’s the portraits of me that enchant me. They are soul food for something I didn’t know I needed to feed. Thank you deeply for this exquisite gift!"

-Andrea D.

"Kindness and genuine compassion for people is what helps Val capture such honest moments during the sessions. Because she is able to connect with her subjects on a deeper level, she is able to take photos that reflect the true personality of her clients."

-Kim H.

Kind Words

"I recently did a Boudoir photo shoot with Val. This is something I have been thinking about for a VERY long time. I kept thinking that a woman almost 67 years old has no business doing such a thing. And on top of that, I was not very confident about being "photogenic". After approaching Val about my interest and concerns, she was able to put me at ease which gave me the confidence to proceed. The day of my shoot, I walked in feeling fairly confident, and after makeup, I was ready! Long story short, everything went wonderfully, and the end result was nothing short of INCREDIBLE!! Thank-you Raina for making me look beautiful, and a HUGE Thank-you to Val for capturing the essence of who I really am...a BEAUTIFUL, VIBRANT WOMAN."

-Linda D.
