Thank you all again, for your understanding on my mother's passing and allowing me some time off. I miss my camera and I am ready to release myself into the beautiful world of photography again! <3 <3 Let's make some beautiful photos!
Thank you again to everyone who has been patient with me while I have had to take some time off work. I will be coming back on Monday. Anyone who would like to schedule a shoot, go ahead and PM me and then on Monday morning I will start responding to booking requests. Also, I will be catching up on any other requests on Monday as well. I will be dropping CDs off at the post office on Wed next week. Also, on Monday I will be posting new seasonal specials.
I have to remind again.. Please be considerate that my mother's funeral was today. Please allow me some time to gather myself before I look at scheduling, perform any retouching of photos, etc... I have to post this reminder again because despite the other reminders, I have continued to get emails and texts of people wanting these things done immediately. If you want a shoot this week then I will refer you to another photographer. If you want me to do your shoot then I will start scheduling new shoot dates on Monday. I just need a couple of days to recover emotionally. Thank you.
This is just a reminder that I am not working this week. Thank you.
I am planing on coming back to work next week some time. It is extremely difficult with my mother's passing, so thank you to all of my clients who have remained patient and understanding <3 My mother would want me to continue on with photography, as I have loved photography since I was a child.. So when I pick up the camera again, I will be continuing to photograph life through my mother's eyes <3 <3

~My German Shepherd puppy, Misha, is currently in service dog training and will be accompanying me on some shoots. During this training, her trainer has requested for the public to please be respectful and do not attempt to play with her because her attention needs to be on me during this time. <3 I have to bring this up again because while I had her out in public with me, people were randomly running up to us and literally picking her up without asking (While on her leash that was attached to my arm), and when asked to please refrain from doing that, the request was ignored. She is adorable <3 But please be respectful. (Also, please do not encourage your children to play with the puppy - she is in training) ~If you are allergic to dogs, please let me know <3 <3 Thank you <3 ~With Love, Valery and Misha; Valery Bredow Photography
I have been booking dates for Fall shoots in advance, so if you want to get a Fall date reserved then message me or call 402-714-1620 before I fill up for that season. ~Fall is the most popular time of the year for outdoor portraits~
~Please note: All Photo CDs will be mailed to the address you provide as I am no longer delivering CDs personally. If you do not feel comfortable providing your mailing address then the CD will be dropped off at the post office for you to pick up.
*Please be advised that more than likely I will have an assistant accompany me to shoots. Photography Assistants provide a smoother shoot, as well as a witness on behalf of the photographer. If this is not applicable then I will be happy to refer to other photographers :-)
~JUST A REMINDER: THE PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES AGREEMENT: Again, I need to remind people to please read the photography service agreements before you sign it - even when I verbally explain the agreement and also provide a copy of the agreement, I still get one or two people out of hundreds that I shoot for that has an issue with the agreement and then later come back and says "Well I did not understand..!" even though I had asked if the agreement was understood prior to signing it... So I need to stress to people to make sure you read the photography services agreement BEFORE you sign it - even if you have to read it a few times and ask questions to make sure you understand :-) I always welcome questions. Some important highlights in the agreement that needs to be understood.... ~As the photographer: I own all rights to all photos that I shoot. ~I do not do the shoot unless I have the signed agreement ~I do not do the shoot until paid in full ~Photo CDs with Print Release are not free unless you purchase that particular package as advertised. ~I am NOT an employee with the printing labs. ~Photography Services are non-refundable (You cant give me back my time for the shoot in exchange for your money back) ~Booking fees are non-refundable (This is typically for weddings and large event shoots and it holds your date. *However I am no longer booking weddings*) ~Please make sure you understand the Nebraska state slander/defamation Law and the Use of Force in Self Defense Law (I WILL protect myself if I am attacked and it is against the law to slander) ~I do not provide any RAW (Unedited) Photos - Those photos are thrown out. ***Please read your agreement before you sign. Photography is suppose to be an enjoyable event ~ Let's keep it that way <3 ***
~Remember that the sun don't set until later in the evening now, so you can always schedule your shoots as late as 6:30pm :-)
I am still taking reservations for Fall Portraits ~ Fall dates are very popular because of the beautiful Fall colors <3 So it is best to get those dates reserved in advance! ~ Fall Portrait pricing is different that the Summer package because of the popularity in Fall Portraits... However, I am willing to waive the reservation fee to hold your date for Fall Portraits! <3 *****Scroll down to see Fall Portrait pricing, or contact me for prices on Fall dates*******
*Remember that when you order prints through the link I send you, you can order any time you want - as many prints as you want! **Also, you have options to get gorgeous Canvas prints of many sizes and water color prints, along with a bunch of other cool stuff for your photos! ~ On a budget? That's ok because you can always order whatever you want and then log back in later to order more at any time! *Their is no time limit or order minimum! <3 ~ Also, you can copy the link and email it to any of your family members along with the password so they can log in and get any prints they want too on their own time :-) ***Hint: My favorite Print Finish is the Metallic Finish ~ It makes that print stand out so beautifully! <3 I always get the metallic for my own prints. Canvas is great too!
The most rewarding part of my job as a photographer is seeing my clients smile and hearing the excitement in their voices when they see their finished photos <3 <3 It makes my day!! :-)
...The best reward of being a photographer is seeing people so happy with their photos <3 I love to make people smile.. it totally lights up my day! Thank you so much you guys! :-)
~Getting ready for another busy weekend of Fall Portraits! <3
~I now have convenient online full res photo downloads for clients! :-) *Save the hassle of waiting for your CD and just download those photos*
~Waiting for 2016 Spring Portrait Season? Better reserve your 2016 Spring date soon because I book up well in advance for those! :-)
~The Holidays are just around the corner! A great Christmas gift would be an online gift card for Family Portraits ;-) How does it work? 1. Message me and let me know that you would like the Family Portraits Gift Card.. 2. I will chat with you (You can call me too! 402-714-1620) to gather information - Your Name Your Email Your Phone Number The Name of the Giftee ***I will need this info for your file and your invoice so you can pay for it*** 3. You will be emailed an Invoice for the cost of the Family Session, and you will pay for the Family Session 4. You will keep the receipt and info on the gift card to give to your giftee (Put it in a card or something) 5. Your Giftee will contact me to reserve a shoot date and they will tell me that they received the gift card from you. 6. I will ask the Giftee to scan and email me the receipt you gave to them (This is so no one tries to scam me and say they got a gift card - If they cant prove it, then no shoot.) 7. As soon as I receive that copy of the gift receipt from your Giftee, then they will chose a date and I will email that person the Photography Services Agreement that they will sign (It will state in the agreement that it was a gift card Family session) - That person will need to sign that and email it back to me *Gives me permission to photograph them* 8. I will lock that person into the schedule for their photo session on the date they have chosen. 9. The shoot date will take place 10. **Unlimited edited photos, unlimited shooting time, etc** After I edit their photos, they will get an email stating their photos are ready for viewing - they can see the edited photos, order any prints they may want, etc. 11. This will include a free Photo CD and Print Release. ~Your Giftee can schedule the shoot for Spring or Summer of 2016~ ********This only applies for Outdoor shooting locations and Families of 3 to 7 people in the group. This is good for ONE Shoot Date only******** Family Portrait Gift Card is $300
~Please remember that I have my prices as low as I can possibly keep them without going broke (Photography IS expensive to the photographer = Buying cameras, lenses, flash, editing software, all the other stuff that costs money.. We do not get all of this nice camera gear for free lol, but I WISH we did!) - Just like everyone else, I have to eat and pay bills as well ;-) Please do shop around and look at other prices, etc. With my prices, I am currently including: *Unlimited Edited Photos *Unlimited Shooting Time *Photo CD with Print Release (This will change to photo downloads in the Spring though!) *Beautiful Outdoor Locations *Pets always welcome! *Family Portraits will include Individual photos of the kids too! *Convenient Online Photo viewing and optional print ordering (Can share with your family this way too) **If you would like portraits, but you are on a budget for the Holidays this season, please remember that you can always reserve a 2016 Spring shoot in advance instead.. You will just pay the small Session Fee to reserve your date and then pay the balance by the shoot date. The thing with Spring shoots is that I book up super fast for those and if you wait until Spring to reserve your date then I can not promise that I will have any available dates at that time because everyone else will have already reserved that well in advance. So don't wait until the last minute to reserve your Spring shoot.. ;-) **
