Leigh & Josh | Waupaca Backyard Farm Wedding

Leigh and Josh are the most adorable couple, who I was so fortunate to meet in Richmond, Virginia this spring (check out their awesome engagement session HERE !)  I have been looking forward to their Waupaca, Wisconsin farm wedding all year.  Leigh and Josh chose to get married on Josh’s grandparents farm where they spent a lot of time getting to know each other and their families over the last 10 1/2 years.  The farm is as beautiful as their families are.  Both Leigh and Josh’s families were so kind and generous as they celebrated the big day in style.  From getting ready in the renovated farmhouse, to a fantastic first look, getting married in front of the barn followed by a unity branding ceremony inside the barn, no detail was overlooked.  Before dinner Leigh changed into her party dress, and check out Josh’s approval below!  The dinner was do delicious and flowed directly into a killer dance party (I was warned well in advance these two would have some dance moves, and did they ever!). So excited for Leigh to start a new adventure at UWSP teaching art history and look forward to watching these two grow old together!

Adventure. Photography. Love.

Amanda is a highly sought travel wedding photographer, where no destination is to remote.  Based in Palmer, Alaska with a satellite location in the beautiful Kickapoo Valley in Southwest Wisconsin.  Amanda is available to travel to your destination wedding, elopement, or engagement. Recent wedding and engagement travels to New York, Virginia, Jamaica, Mexico, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin showcase her adventurous spirit to capture love in remote and unique locations.  

Playing with toy cameras before she could walk, Amanda was soon using a fisher price 110 mm film camera.  She found herself spending her teenage and college years with her 35 mm film camera, rarely leaving her side, Amanda spent six weeks in Iceland and Europe capturing environmental justice with her film cameras before entering graduate school and the digital age.  While still enjoying 35mm and medium format film for personal projects, today Amanda uses digital technology for documenting her clients biggest day.  

 Photography the Feels Natural

Ensuring her clients enjoy their wedding day is the most important element for Amanda. Thus Amanda is unobtrusive, capturing the day as it happens. Amanda does not work from a shot list, but instead reacts to events as they unfold.  This form of photography creates a visual story organic in nature.  Amanda has an eye for capturing real moments.  Her style of photography sets her apart from other wedding photographers.  

Throughout the day Amanda uses nature to help enhance her beautiful subjects.  Using natural light, shadows, and reflections Amanda ensures the bride and groom stand out.  Amanda is drawn to the magical light occurring at sunrise and sunset where she lets her creativity run free.  While Amanda prefers to work at venues that accompany her free spirit including backyards, farms, ranches, barns, wineries and secluded getaway, her talents allow her to work in most any setting.
