It is late, and I was just too excited to post these images until morning… So what can I say? Gwynne and Eric are awesome, and they have an even awesomer little girl. I met Gwynne back in design school and when she was telling me about her wedding I knew it would be fantastic. When she asked me if I would photograph the wedding, I was ecstatic! Being friends on Facebook, I got to see all the details come together as we got closer to the wedding day… each little detail done (most done by the hands of Gwynne herself) I got more excited for the wedding day. The ceremony took place at the fabulous Villa Terrace and the reception at the cool MOCT down in the Third Ward. They also had a pretty awesome Crazy Booth at MOCT… check that out over here… clickity click
The day was wonderful, and here are a few of my favs:

Before we head off to WPPI (a large photography conference and trade-show) to learn a bunch of new things, and check out some new products, here is another wedding from last year.
Courtny and Stephen had a small wedding and reception at the Villa Terrace in Milwaukee, WI. These two are perfect for each other. They both have such a wonderful sense of humor. Just seeing them laugh together is infectious, and makes your day just a little better.

Kelly and Dave got married last year up in Oshkosh at the EAA museum… and I am catching up on weddings that I didn’t have a chance to blog about. So without much further, here are some of my favorites from their wedding:

I have been friends with Sarah for quite a while. We met through mutual friends, I believe at a campfire? All I know is it was many years ago. When Sarah first contacted me, it was just to let me know that she was engaged. Later she contacted me again to inquire on hiring Valo to shoot her wedding. I was very stoked to hear Sarah and Tyler wanted to hire me to shoot their wedding. If there is one thing I like more than photographing a wedding, it is photographing a friends wedding.
The engagement session you are about to look at (hopefully, that is if you are still reading this… I usually skip ahead to the photos and then come back to read stuff) was a TON of fun. The locations were very cool, thanks to the scouting of Tyler. I got a lot of emails from them leading up to their engagement session of other e-sessions they had found around the Internet, photos from a scouting mission Tyler went on, and a lot of thoughts on location. This was great, because it let me see a little of what they were thinking of, and it made smile every time I got one of their emails, because I could tell how excited they were. When a couple is very excited about shooting, it makes my level of excitement rise as well. And so it kept amplifying, until we met up at Alterra and started shooting… Here is what I created on a perfect day, with a great couple…

My man, and partner in crime (well… partner in photography) got married! I have been looking forward to this wedding for a long time, and I have to say I was honored to be able to shoot this wedding. Thank you Simon and Nicole for having me photograph your wedding, it was truly a magical day. Since this is just a preview, I will write more later on a full post… so for now check out Simon and Nic… rockin’ it like only the McConico’s can…
