FAQs

You have questions? We have answers!

We like to keep things simple so we have outlined some of our most commonly asked questions below. Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are happy to chat!

WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER?

We aren't scared of rain, and you shouldn't be either. A lot of the time, stormy weather makes your photos all the better. Of course, if it is dangerous or a complete downpour, we can work around it or even reschedule, but no need to worry, we got you covered no matter the circumstances. 

WHAT ISLAND ARE YOU BASED ON?

We are based on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii and love our little island. However! We are totally open to traveling. Contact us if you have specific questions, and we would be happy to work something out with you.

HOW MUCH COVERAGE DO I NEED?

Wedding day coverage all depends on what your needs are. For standard weddings (first look, ceremony/temple, bridals, and reception) it is typically 8 hours. We can adjust our packages based on your needs, if you need more or less coverage, just let us know! We are flexible :)

CAN I GET THE UNEDITED PHOTOS/VIDEO FOOTAGE?

Typically, we do NOT give out our un-edited photos or video footage. Unedited footage is basically like a half-baked cake, it might taste all right, but it's not the best is can be. Of course, we may release the footage on a case by case basis if needed.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY PHOTOS/VIDEOS BACK?

For weddings, our turnaround time is typically 1-2 months for both photos and video. For any other photo/video project, we allow a 2 week turn around.

 

HOW DOES THE BOOKING PROCESS WORK?

Send us a message, we can walk you through from there. We want to keep things simple. Once you reach out to us, we will typically ask a few questions from you such as "what kind of coverage will you be needing?", "Did you have any specific ideas/vision about your day?", and "what is your budget". We totally under

HOW DO YOU DELIVER THE PHOTOS?

We send our photos via an online gallery. We will provide a passcode that will allow you to download the photos straight to your computer. After that, you are free to print, share, or do whatever you like with your photos. :)

Videos are delivered usually via google drive or Vimeo.

CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP US?

We typically do not make any adjustments to body shape or any extreme photoshop of the images. If there is a small blemish or pimple, we can easily correct that of course. There are some instances where we will photoshop images together for group shots so we get everyone looking at the camera. Otherwise, we prefer to preserve the image to be as real to life as possible. We will not take drastic measures to correct an image after the fact, but instead will pose and prompt you so you look your best while we are shooting. 

DO YOU SHOOT FAMILIES?

Right now, we are focusing strictly on couples and weddings. However, we can offer recommendations of family photographers on the island.

DO YOU OFFER PRINTS?

Through your online gallery, you are able to order custom prints, or you are more than welcome to print your own images. We do not offer prints directly through us.

"I cannot even explain my love for the work they did on my wedding day!! My husband and I flew to Hawaii just to get married so I just had to have faith everyone would go well! Emilio and Sarah went above and beyond my expectations! So easy to work with, great communications, and helped us capture our perfect day! Sarah has the ability to capture emotions in her photography and videography in a beautiful and real way. I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else! 

Emilio went beyond anything I imagined. Our video was absolutely amazing, everyone said it gave them goosebumps! That’s how much emotion he put into it. It was absolutely beautiful. He was a joy to work with and I would HIGHLY recommend if you need a video, he is your guy!!

What people are saying...

I don’t think I’m super photogenic, so having my pictures taken is something really nerve-wracking for me, but with Valenciano Visuals it was an absolute breeze! I liked being told which poses might look good and having music in the background (thanks Emilio) and I felt so confident with my sista Sarah rooting me on! I’m for sure going to have all of my pictures taken by them the next chance I get! I can’t wait to model with them again!
