Hello, we are Matt & Krista Fornear of Fornear Photo!

As a young married couple ourselves we feel we can really connect with our clients on a personal level since we too are young, fun, and creative!

Though we are based out of Eagle River, Wisconsin do not let our small town roots from the Northwoods fool you, between the two of us we have lived in the metropolises of Phoenix AZ, Chicago IL, and Milwaukee WI so we can relate to many different clients, big city or rural alike.

Being a perfect fit is VERY important to us we always do a consultation before any contract is ever signed, whether it's in person, over the phone or Skype for our long distance clients. We also feel that every couple no matter the budget deserves to have pictures that make them look their very best selves on their wedding day so we try to be budget friendly. We also have our clients fill out a questionnaire to help us learn about their personality further and encourage our brides & grooms to go with our All Day Package to take advantage of our FREE engagement shoot to get comfortable in front of the camera. In addition a week before your wedding we review with you your expectations, shot list and wedding day itinerary.

Currently we are shooting weddings throughout Wisconsin, the Midwest and are available to shoot anywhere in the United States!

Wedding (and engagement) photography through Matt and Krista of Fornear Photo is an incredible value, and makes one part of the hectic process of wedding planning a breeze. Matt and Krista were with us for the entire day, well over 8 hours, with no complaints, and they provided hundreds of quality pictures to help us relive our wedding day. We can't thank them enough!

Matt and Krista are fantastic! They were very easy to work with and always made certain we were pleased with the products/ plan. We live in MKE in had our wedding in Northern WI. They traveled without hesitation to MKE for our engagement photos. As they lived all around WI and Chicago - they are very familiar with great locations for special shots, but will work with you for your personal needs. If I could give greater than 5 starts for their value...I would!

Matt and Krista were both excellent! Friendly, professional, easy going. And the pictures we received were gorgeous!

We don't live near Matt and Krista (we live in Northwest Indiana) but they still traveled down to meet with us and do an engagement shoot well before the wedding. That really helped my wife and me see how dedicated they can be to making their customers happy. Of all the vendors we worked with, they stood out as the most interested in our special day.

Their instructions for helping us help them in knowing what kind of photos to take were concise and clear and that really put us both at ease as the day approached. We never once worried that we wouldn't be getting exactly what we wanted. And even after the wedding, they've been so forthcoming with answering any questions we had about our prints.

We were very happy with Fornear Photo throughout the entire experience.

If you are looking for photographers that are fun, talented, professional, with absolutely reasonable prices, then look no further!

I spend a lot of energy looking for photographers, because I hate having my picture taken. So photography was a major point of anxiety for me. However, once I met Matt and Krista, I knew that I didn't have anything to worry about anymore. They were laid back, fun, and great at working with us. They were super flexible, traveling to the Chicago area twice (once for an initial meeting, and once again to do an engagement shoot) then to Madison, WI where our wedding was. I highly recommend doing the package with the engagement shoot because it gave us time to get to know one another which really put me at ease on my wedding day. They also got some really fabulous pictures, and I was surprised to find I had fun! I'd never had fun having my picture taken in my life before that day. Seriously. It was a torture to be endured for the sake of my mother, usually.

What I love about how Matt and Krista take pictures is that not only do they do a wonderful job at capturing how everything looked (not always an easy task for a wedding, I imagine) but they also captured how everything felt. When I look at our wedding pictures, I feel the same kind of joy as I felt when my husband and I got married. I also loved how they get plenty of great pictures of my groom and I, the wedding party, and our families, but they also caught sweet little moments of our guests enjoying themselves, and being with their spouses, children, and friends.

I can't recommend Fornear Photo enough. Finding them was one of the best things that happened during my wedding planning process, and I feel so lucky. I'm so pleased with and grateful for all the work they did for us.

Matt and Krista went above and beyond to make our special day memorable. They even set time aside to get to know us prior to our wedding day. They know exactly how to make their photos look natural, which I loved! I would definitely recommend their services to anyone! Thank you so much Fornear Photo for all your hard work and capturing memories for us that we can go back and see for years and years to come!
