Moon Valley Creative is a collective of photography and jewelry making. My goal through Moon Valley Creative is to build deeper relationships with whomever it is that I am working with so that you will experience confidence and beauty through the photographs we create.

I believe life is meant to be lived in joy, in community with one another- outdoing each other in love and friendship. Life is supposed to be fun and lived with others. Take time to live, to rest, to enjoy it with those around you. And when you find yourself in a place in life that you want to look back on and remember one day, that’s when I come to document life for you. My approach is very easy going, low stress, very natural. I want to provide photographs that showcase your unique life, love and zest. Art is a collaborative process, so I want to really take the time to get to know you before the shoot, so by the time we are shooting together we are in our comfort zones. It takes time to create art and get to know one another, so the process won’t be rushed.


Tucson Arizona Portrait Photographer | Katie Corley

Katie Corley

Photographer + Jewelry Artist
I am the photographer behind Moon Valley Creative and the creator of the rings sold in the shop.
I have been working as a photographer for a decade now, traveling across the United States working with people and companies along the way. Currently, I am based in Tucson, Arizona. I’ve had a love for the desert and the west since my childhood days and have moved out here since becoming an adult. I spend my free-time hiking, reading, writing, or cycling. Two years ago I finally made the jump to get into jewelry making - diving headfirst into learning the techniques and science behind it all. The process takes a couple weeks, as I handcraft each copper ring and hand pick each stone. The gemstones I use are typically found in their raw form and come from places as far as Mermaid Beach, Australia to the Himalayan Mountains in Tibet.




Each package is a unique experience designed specifically with you in mind. During the planning period, I will send over a questionnaire to help with planning, as well getting input from you on what you expect from your session.

Don't worry about feeling awkward in front of the camera, most people I work with do not have a lot of experience in front of the camera. I shoot in all natural lighting outdoors and I try to bring a more natural feel to your portraits. My style includes me directing you through movements to capture a natural look as well as including poses to provide you with a variety of photographs.

phoenix couple session

Mini Session - $175

A 45 minute photo session in any location you choose. These mini sessions have proved to be great for families, headshots, bloggers, small businesses, and anyone who is just wanting to get a few fun updated photos. 


Portrait Session - $250

An hour and a half session of shooting. There is no limit on locations or outfits during your session, just keep in mind that the more you bring to wear or the more places we go, that is less time spent shooting. Typically in this time frame we will stick to one general location and take photos in various places there. I will be there to help guide you through looking your best in the photos and picking the best places for the photos.

How many photos do I get back?

Each session is unique to the person. I can't give you a set amount because I do not limit you to how many you get back. Lets say one person who books a regular portrait session has 3 outfits, whereas another person has 6 outfits. One person will have spent more time changing clothes than the other person and this can effect how much time was actually spent shooting, therefore effecting how many total photos are returned back. I don’t like to limit the photos you get back, so you will get back the majority of your photos!

What if it rains?

We will reschedule the shoot if it rains. If it is overcast, you have the option to reschedule to a sunnier day without losing your deposit. 

How much is the deposit to book a date?

The deposit to book the date is going to be 50% of the total price.
**Deposits are non-refundable & will hold your date - if a deposit is not paid, the date/time can not be held for you. 

Payment Methods: Venmo, Paypal, Credit Card



After the Shoot

How long until I get my photos back?

Portraits: 3-4 weeks
Weddings: 6-7 weeks

Can you put this in black and white but leave one part in color?


Will I have to buy prints? How will I get my photos back after the session?

Portrait sessions will be returned via digital file download.

You do not have to buy prints unless you would like to.
