Telling a love story with creativity and elegance is the aim of Auckland-based photographer and videographer couple Rohan and Laura.
The duo, better known as Valo Photo & Video, have a relaxed but detail-oriented approach to shooting weddings, aiming to find beauty in the ordinary little moments while crafting stories that reflect the personalities of each couple and the ambience of their wedding day. Together, the experienced team put a lot of emphasis on beautiful framing and skilful timing of each shot to capture special moments artistically and romantically.
Allow us to introduce you to Rohan who manages the videography side of Valo. With a vibrant personality and a deep appreciation for people, Rohan’s work revolves around capturing beautiful storylines that truly reflect the essence of each couple’s special day.
Rohan believes in a simple and unobtrusive approach to filming. By keeping his equipment minimal, he ensures that nothing distracts him from capturing the true essence of the day—the genuine moments. This allows him to blend seamlessly into the crowd, immersing himself in the surroundings, absorbing every detail: the ambience, the sounds, and, most importantly, the emotions. The result is footage that is both beautiful and meaningful, capturing the true spirit of the celebration.
The other half of Valo is Laura, a talented and passionate wedding photographer with a deep-rooted passion for visual storytelling. Laura strives to capture the seemingly ordinary moments and transform them into something extraordinary by composing each image in a way that brings out the inherent beauty of that precise moment.
Creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for her subjects is paramount for Laura. She believes that the best photographs are captured when people are fully immersed in the moment, forgetting about being photographed. She ensures that her subjects feel at ease, enabling their true personalities and emotions to shine through in each photograph.
