We are two Milwaukee Area photographers, Simon McConico and Jake Rohde. We try and make something fresh every time we pick up a camera. Our style is a blend of documentary and relaxed portrature. Most of all, we love to tell a story… A wedding story to us is everything from the details you spent so much time on to the small moments that make up the day. Sometimes the best stuff happens between the main scheduled events. Details, getting ready, candid moments, portraits, ceremony and reception all make up the story.
Since every wedding is different, we have become very good at adaptation. While our style carries through everything we do, the images are unique to your day.
Valo Photography is located in Milwaukee, WI, but we do not like to put ourselves in a box. We travel quite a bit for a modest travel fee, so if you are getting married somewhere outside of Milwaukee or even on the other side of the World, drop us a line and we can work out a custom package for you.
What’s a Valo?
The word valo is actually Finnish for “light”. Light is by all means the base of any photograph. Photographs are made of light, and the art of photography is finding the light, or creating the light, to make images that breathe, talk, move, and capture emotion and life. Every time we press the shutter, we are trying to capture that light in one still frame.
Many times we are asked why we make photographs. That answer is simple for us. Photography is something we have to do, it is something born in us, it is a passion, it is our lives. Taking this passion and sharing it with others has been an extraordinary experience.
