Hi there! Matt & Krista of Fornear Photo here ~ we are Northwoods wedding photographers based out of Eagle River, Wisconsin the very heart of the Northwoods! While nothing beats taking photos in our own picturesque backyard of the Northwoods of Wisconsin we also love to photograph destination weddings throughout Wisconsin, the Midwest and beyond just as much! We love working with a wide range of clients. So many of our amazing clients grew up vacationing at resorts in the Northwoods or visiting grandma and grandpa's Northern Wisconsin cabin on the lake in the summer. Now so many of our brides and grooms have lake cabin engagement shoots where they have so many special memories or their rustic resort wedding where they spent so many summers years ago. What is most important to Fornear Photo is not only providing you with creative, professional quality wedding photographs but to also walk away with having had a great experience of your time spent with us.


As a Northwoods wedding photographer we love working with all types of brides and grooms but where we really shine is with our creative Offbeat Bride weddings. Our images are colorful, fun and candid… just like you! No matter where you are getting married whether it’s an Eagle River Northwoods wedding or a Milwaukee, Minneapolis or Chicago one let Fornear Photo capture your special day.

We have snapped many unique weddings from different barn and rustic wedding settings to a Game of Thrones wedding, a Las Vegas wedding featuring a zombie bride and groom, a bowling wedding, an LGBTQ wedding and even a Halloween wedding. We are proud Offbeat Bride vendors and have even had our work featured there here and here. That said, if you think you are more of a tattooed bride or even a quirky or nerdy couple that would love a Star Wars ceremony or simply have craft beer flowing at your reception we love those things too and are happy to incorporate them and other interests you have into your special day. Photography by Fornear Photo has also been featured on Wisconsin Brides, WeddingWire and The Wall Street Journal. We love our clients and our clients love working with us too. Please take the time to check out what our past couples have had to say about us on WeddingWire, in addition, we have also won the WeddingWire Couple’s Choice Award for three straight years!

Have you ever considered a destination wedding? When you think of a destination wedding do all you think of is having a beautiful wedding on the coast of Florida or the beaches of Mexico or a Caribbean wedding? Fornear Photo is happy to be your destination photographer wherever you choose to get married! That said, did you know that having a Northwoods Wedding is a great place to have a destination wedding too?!

Maybe you have even considered having an Upper Michigan wedding, Fornear Photo is only located 20 minutes away! Maybe you have your heart set on a Great Lakes wedding with a wedding ceremony on the shore of Lake Superior or Lake Michigan. We love the big lakes so much we even had a Lake Superior wedding ourselves in Bayfield Wisconsin overlooking the Apostle Islands. Fornear Photo would love to be your destination wedding photographer, no distance is too near or far for us!
