The Outlet is a monthly event that is near to my heart. First off a good friend of mine, April Robertson, is behind the entire thing..and secondly not only do I get to enjoy and meet local artists, I am also supporting a different local charity every month. The first show was one of the biggest events the Creative Room had ever held and I am praying it keeps growing from there. Here are some photos I took from the first month. You can look forward to a short promo video coming from the next show…THIS SATURDAY! Creative Room: 8-11ish
Last Saturday morning I had such a great time combining my two favorite things, Coffee and Photography. I spent four hours walking around downtown Tulsa to different coffee shops and listening to the "behind the scenes" work that goes into each cup. I was able to visit Foolish Things Coffee, Chimera, Joebots Coffee Bar, Hodges Bend, Mods Coffee & Crepes, and Topeca in the Mayo Hotel. So much delicious coffee and so many cool people who are passionate about it!
Here is some recent work I shot for a company called Dine Design. I have had so much fun photographing local restaurants,events and people. Everyday I am reminded of how much I love Tulsa and all the places I have yet to see….and photograph!!
This couple was so enjoyable to shoot! Their love shines through each image..which made it easy on my end, Thanks Jacob and Diamond.

Huge thanks goes out to Anna Shroeder and William Staudt for helping me.
These are a few portraits of my classmates who are graduating with me this December. Our theme was Mad Men for our group portrait so I took advantage of everyone being dressed up and took a few portraits.
This is a few shots from my engagement shoot with Macrae and Justin. Such a beautiful and fun couple, had a great time photographing them. Canon 5D Mark II , 58mm Voigtlander.
I had the pleasure to photograph a friend of mine's bridals, engagement, and soon to come wedding photos. So excited for this beautiful couple!
I had the amazing opportunity to photograph my cousin's proposal yesterday. I am so excited for this beautiful couple. Shot with Canon 5D Mark II, equipped with a 17-40mm and 58mm lens.
These are a few fun photos on set of the "Open your eyes" shoot I recently did for a school project plus a couple of frame grabs from the video itself. Kelly Kerr (my professor at school) was the camera operator. I owe a huge thank you to him and all of those who helped me make this possible. All subjects were so willing and let me pour water all over them! Shot on a RED camera at the OSUIT studio in Okmulgee, OK. Video will be posted soon. www.vimeo.com/valeriegrant
Here are a few images from my fisheye film camera taken in California.
I get a kick out of seeing my confused face every time I shoot with my Go Pro Hero 3. However it is interesting to look through them all and see all of the interesting environments. (My accomplice in these images is Mariah Addis, a great friend of mine and an awesome helper that I am very grateful for)
I've spent my summer in California for a photography internship. On the weekends I traveled to several beaches and took portraits of surfers and their boards.
Laguna Beach, Point Dume in Malibu, Hungtington Beach and Santa Monica.
