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.

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 uniqueness and personality. 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.



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 the Tucson and Phoenix areas in 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 exploring, reading, writing, or cycling. I currently am a student pilot, working towards my private pilot certificate. 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.


Office Hours

These are surefire times to reach me via phone or email. If you contact me outside of my office hours, there is a chance
you will not be able to get ahold of me. During my time off on weekends, I will either be shooting weddings,
or out flying, hiking, or surfing. No phone service!



riverside, california

Where are you located?

Phoenix and Tucson areas of Arizona.
(Back and forth a lot between both locations during the week)

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. Let’s 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:
Cash ;) ;) , Venmo, Paypal, Credit Card (fees may apply for CC payments)



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.

Weddings are delivered on a USB drive.

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