The past 15 years have taught me a thing or two about what you likely want in a photographer. And over that time I’ve learned that having a great connection with your photographer is precisely how you’ll forget about the camera and simply be yourselves. So, that’s how I like to begin.
We’ll spend some time getting to know one another, and I’ll discover who and what is important to you. This understanding will allow me to deliver images that not only look like you but feel like you too.
Then, I’ll approach your wedding as a journalist - photographing your biggest moments and joy-filled emotions while actively seeking out the little things that you won’t always get a chance to see. I’m equally confident giving you direction to make sure you’re relaxed, comfortable and look your best. And at the same time, I know when I need to take a back seat and let a moment naturally unfold.
And because I recognize that your wedding day isn’t a photo shoot, I’ll aim to capture your day perfectly as possible without monopolizing all your time. After all, you’ve intentionally invited your family and friends, and you deserve to have time to celebrate with them.
Backyard wedding at an incredible family cabin in Balsam Lake WI? Count. Us. In. Daniel & Elizabeth made their day uniquely theirs at Daniels' family cabin with flawless execution: beautiful florals (the venerable and amazing Wilderland Floral) and decor/planning (the wonderful Keyed Up Events), at a ceremony site that most venues would be envious of and partied the night away with craft cocktails under a clear tent(!) for unobstructed views of the cloudless fall sky. Was it a perfect day? Yes. Yes it was.
Sammi & Kyle perfectly executed a wedding vision that was one of the most delicious pallets we’ve seen in a long time. They ran hard and fast away from mundane color tones and embraced complete vibrancy for the ultimate win. From florals, bridesmaids dresses, decor and invites… it captured their personalities beautifully.

In the course of showing friends and family the photos from our wedding, someone remarked “I looked through the whole thousand photos and it brought me RIGHT back to that moment. I felt like I was there.” I don’t think you can have a more ringing endorsement for a wedding photographer! 10/10 would recommend Adam and Mary Beth again and again. These two are just so lovely to work with AND the product is incredible. The process to get AKP booked was easy and clear, they accommodated all our requests and out of the box ideas, and Adam’s excitement about his work brings an energy that made both engagement photos and our wedding day so fun. So many people remarked that they just enjoyed being around Adam and Mary Beth during our wedding day, and I think the organization and relaxed, joyful energy they brought really shows in our photos. Not to mention, they kept myself and my husband calm and giddy all day. And I cannot state enough that our photos are incredible. Someone told me they are the best wedding photos she has ever seen! We can’t recommend AKP highly enough!
