We are Matt & Krista Fornear, the Northwoods wedding photographers behind Fornear Photo!
Taking awesome wedding photos is our passion and being fortunate enough to work with many cool and creative people we have come across is just the icing on the cake. While Eagle River weddings do take place in our hometown here in the very heart of the Northwoods we photograph throughout all of Wisconsin, Northern Wisconsin as well as parts of Upper Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri. Needless to say, we love to photograph destination weddings, so please don't be shy to ask for our pricing and availability for travel all over the Midwest and beyond! Also, please don’t let our small town roots 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.
From the weddings along the coast of the Great Lakes of Michigan and Superior in Green Bay, Milwaukee, Chicago, Superior and Duluth to the Twin Cities, Central Illinois, and Las Vegas, we have photographed nuptials for a wide range of clients in just about any setting you can imagine. Church weddings to barn weddings, craft brewery weddings to rustic lodges, there isn't a situation we aren't prepared to document for your special day.
We specialize in creative Northwoods and Offbeat Bride wedding photography and engagement shoots but are also available for family photos and event photography too all while traveling throughout Wisconsin & beyond. Our style of photography mostly consists of the photojournalism/documentary variety with some posed shots and even formals thrown in for mom and pop. Your photos will be vibrant and colorful, just like you! In addition, we are also honored to have been featured on sites like Wisconsin Brides, WeddingWire, Offbeat Bride here and here in addition to being an approved vendor for Offbeat Bride & WeddingWire. Lastly, we are also a proud member of WPPI & the Eagle River, WI Chamber of Commerce!
GET TO KNOW US
Matt: Hi I’m the owner and lead photographer for Fornear Photo! I have my BA from the Art Institute, so what was once a hobby turned into my passion and now a profession that I love! Creating awesome photos is what I love to do, especially weddings, as it is a great chance to share my passion for photography with great couples and their loved ones on the happiest day of their lives. When I am not photographing a wedding, engagement or events I always have my camera with me snapping whatever unique view that comes my way whether it's a landscape photography or a photo of my favorite record or craft beer.
Krista: Hi, I’m the second shoot for Fornear Photo! I love getting the chance to look around and snap the fun candid shots at weddings that make each one unique! By day I am a craft beer sales rep, graphic designer and have my BA in Visual Communications from Collins College in Tempe, Arizona.
Together: We have been married since 2008 and shooting weddings together ever since. When we aren’t having a blast working with awesome couples we love traveling (we even own a vintage Airstream Argosy we are remodeling, follow our adventures on A Riveting Life's Instagram page) but we also enjoy spending time with family, our kitties trying new restaurants, craft beer, hunting for and listening to records, going on adventures, exploring the Great Lakes region and of course taking lots of photos together!
