During their visit to their cabin along Lake Superior Annette and her family wanted some update family portraits. Their gorgeous log cabin with view of the icy water provided the perfect setting. The session was a blast from start to finish, especially during the epic snowball fight and them sledding down the driveway. We truly adore being able to capture all the fun! Enjoy!

We are nerds for photography. We love systemizing our workflow, we get jazzed at strategizing our marketing, and we do a happy dance each time we successfully finish another wonderful year in photography. Like I said….nerds. Maybe it’s because we are passionate about growing our business more and more successful or maybe it’s just the fact that we really like what we do for a living. It is job–but it’s the best one in the world!

We found one of our biggest passions lately has been educating and guiding photographers into success as well! That is why we are now making our coaching available to anyone that is needing direction. The 1-on-1 coaching is personalized to help individuals with any of the following; editing tutorials, branding, photos critiques, pricing, shooting techniques, business growth, in person sales, marketing, social media, off camera flash….or anything else that pertains to photography. The three hour coaching also includes lunch, headshots, and a downloaded pdf that is packed with content. Prior to the 1-on-1 coaching session you’ll receive an online questionnaire to fill out your biggest concerns and problem areas. This questionnaire will allow us to truly tailor the coaching session to your needs.

Below are some of the common questions or concerns that we receive from photographers. If there are any additional questions we can answer for you please email us: info@wrenphotography.com

” I live too far away for this!” That is why we are also making this available via a Skype as well. The Skype coaching won’t include lunch or headshots, but a discount will be given to account for that. We are accommodating to photogs in different timezones and will work our best to find a time that works for everyone.

“I’m not a professional photographer, I just need help figuring out how to work my camera!” We can help you out as well! If it pertains to photography in any way shape or form we are here to assist you.

“How much does this cost?” Your investment in the 1-on-1 coaching can be found by emailing us at info@wrenphotography.com

“I’m EXCITED! How soon can we schedule this?!” We are excited as well! We need a two week notice for scheduling. Please note that we are wedding photographers, so Saturdays are unavailable for the 1-on-1 coaching. We are flexible with our schedules otherwise.

We look forward to provided many of you with education that will further your photography. There is no better time than now to take charge and move forward.

When Mark and Elise planned their winter wedding we are sure they envisioned snow covered trees and a cozy reception, little did they know that the most amazing snowstorm is what their wedding day would hold. Snow was heavily falling, making the roads slippery and slow. The bride was getting ready at the Depot in Negaunee, while the groom prepared at the Ramada in Marquette. After a very slow drive to the church (only getting stuck three times) the ceremony began. The Christmas lights and poinsettia filled the church with color as Mark & Elise said “I DO”! The bridal party then made their way to Marquette for some of the most beautiful wedding pictures. The snow clung to the trees and was nearly a foot deep by that point.  Thankfully it wasn’t actually that cold out and the trees created a barrier from the big fluffy snow. After that is was onto the wedding reception. The reception was filled with uplights in red and the rustic decorations looked incredible. We adored that they even had a Christmas Tree that guest could put their presents under. One of our favorite moments was the surprise dance that Mark & Elise did for their first dance (that will be posted soon). It was truly a stunning winter wedding that Mr. & Mrs. Elegeert planned, snow and all.

Their story is incredible and surreal. They were modeling for us during a winter styled shoot and the first thing Katelyn said to George was, “Hi! I’m your bride!” They playfully posed in the freezing cold, holding each other close for warmth. A few days later Katelyn said they were talking more and more after the shoot. It was long before they were dating and truly had one of the best “how we met” story. Then, as many of you may remember, George planned the most adorable surprise proposal! They originally planned a summer wedding, but an intimate winter wedding suited them better. Their family and friends gathered close outside as George & Katelyn said “I DO!” Being that their wedding was right after Christmas their home was decorated full of lights and pine. We could not be happier for Mr. & Mrs. Meister! It’s been an adventure watching their love blossom the past two years.
