Ann and Ben are the most lovely and fun couple. I first met them last fall coming back from a wedding in the Apostle Islands with Rebecca Eby of Studio Noveau. Rebecca and I captured their engagement session in northern Wisconsin in one the the University of Wisconsin research forests (Ben is going to school to be a forester!)   As you can see they are a super fun couple and I was pertty excited when Rebecca asked me to join her for their wedding at Glacier Canyon Lodge in Wisconsin Dells this year. It was a super bright sunny hot day, and these two were amazing.



About the Photographer:

Amanda is a highly sought midwest wedding photographer based in Bismarck, North Dakota.  Recent wedding travels have taken her to Alaska, New York, Jamaica, Minnesota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.  Amanda has an eye for capturing real moments as her documentary style of photography sets her apart from other wedding photographers.  Most important to Amanda is how her clients enjoy their day, thus Amanda is unobtrusive as possible and captures the day as it happens.  But when a little coaching is needed to make her clients feel comfortable, Amanda isn’t afraid to make them feel at ease with her dry humor and bad jokes.  Amanda does not work from a shot list, but instead reacts to the events as they unfold.  This form of photography helps create a visual story of the day that is organic in nature.  Throughout the event Amanda uses nature to help enhance the beautiful subjects.  Natural light, shadows, and reflections are especially used to make the images stand out.   Amanda is drawn to the magical light that happens near sunrise and sunset where she is able to let 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.

Amanda was playing with toy cameras before she could walk and quickly moved on to a fisher price 110 mm film camera before spending her teenage and college years – including a six week trek across iceland and europe – with a 35 mm film camera.  Amanda still enjoys shooting 35mm and medium format film for personal projects but now enjoys digital documentary photography for sessions.  Amanda loves to meet new people so call 608.576.7651 or email {} to connect.
