You have style. You are visually sophisticated. You desire emotionally charged, poetic photographs. You deserve an exceptional photographic experience. Look no further than Ardent Photography.

I offer a sophisticated, modern photographic style which blends fresh ideas, romantic portraiture and spontaneous moments to create exquisite photographs of your most cherished memories. I love photographing weddings because of the endless joy and unanticipated moments the day brings. Each wedding day is unique and every couple inspires me with a vision to create amazing images.

My goal is to give you an enjoyable experience before, during and after your wedding day. From the initial consultation to the pre-wedding meeting I cover all the details and must have shots. Our relationship flourishes during your engagement session and allows for an easy response to the lens on the wedding day. On the wedding day I interact with you and guests as a friend, you are my only thought in the world that day. I'm there for you after the wedding day as I guide you through the ordering process and deliver high quality professional photographs.

Because I value a great relationship with all of my couples I limit the number of weddings I photograph. I only shoot up to 20 weddings per year - popular dates book quickly. Please visit www.ardentphoto.com and contact me to see if I am available on your date.








In addition to shooting weddings, I've created Unveiled Portraits a boutique boudoir photography endeavor. I celebrate the sensuous grace and beauty of every woman. I believe all women are beautiful and deserve to be photographed in a light that makes themselves feel beautiful. I accentuate your assets with creative posing and lighting - no need to tan, diet or work out. You are beautiful the way you are and you will see it in your photographs. Sessions are held at boutique modern hotels in various cities throughout Wisconsin. Private sessions are available upon request. Visit www.unveiledportraits.com for more information. Read less

Ardent Photography was the best choice we could have made for our wedding on August 17, 2013. Amy and her staff were very responsive and tailored to our needs. It's not easy planning a wedding from out of state, but Amy and Steph made it simple for us. They were flexible and understanding with us. We absolutely love our photos. They captured our day completely, from the main events down to little details. When we look through our album and photos, we are reminded of the little parts of our wedding that we had already forgotten about. We could not be happier with our photos!

Amy did a fantastic job! She treats her clients based on their individual needs. She takes the time to get to know them and really listens to. Each couple's ideas and concerns. Steph is excellent at answering questions and responding in quickly. Amy's work is incredible! The day of the wedding she was ready for anything and worked extremely hard to capture our big day. She also did our engagement pictures and I surprised my husband with a Boudir session. Amy made me feel comfortable during get session. When my husband saw my pictures, he was blown away!

Amy and her team were a dream to work with!!! I knew from our first phone call that it was going to be an amazing experience! My husband and I are both in the military and Amy was very accommodating to our fast paced, changing schedules. She had great ideas for pictures and every print looks natural! After reviewing our photos we are so happy with the final product! Amy and her team thought of things we never would have thought to capture! Great photographer! Great business! Highly recommend!

Amy did an excellent job as photographer at our wedding. We received so many beautiful shots its hard to pick which one is our favorite! Her and her assistant were very professional and helped guide us through our day. I never felt rushed or behind schedule which took so much stress off our shoulders. The album we purchase with our wedding images truly captured the story of our wedding. Having the assistant available to take pictures allowed even more moments to be captured!

We recently got married and Amy was our photographer, and boy were we lucky to have had her shooting our wedding (and we haven't even seen the proofs yet!). First, during the planning phases and initial meeting she was easy going, responsive, professional, funny, and picked up on our personalities right away. First impressions are key and Amy makes a great one! Leading up to the wedding day she is very detail oriented and organized, with a very comprehensive pre-wedding checklist so that no important or desired pictures are missed. She also communicates with the videographer (if you have one) before the wedding--no surprises for anyone. Amy shot our wedding with an assistant (also very friendly and professional) and was in total control the entire time, from pre-ceremony shots of the wedding party to post-ceremony shots of us and our families. We (or anyone else for that matter) never felt like she was intruding or in-the-way. We were totally comfortable with Amy being 'in our faces' from the beginning. After the ceremony we went to an outdoor park for pictures and it was a very sunny day (good for us, bad for photos!), and Amy was able to adjust and make changes on the fly so that the pictures were exactly what she wanted. This is huge. When faced with a potentially photo-unfriendly environment (i.e. bright sun), you want a photographer who doesn't blink an eye and can just make the necessary adjustments. That is exactly what Amy did.

One of the most amazing things that Amy did for our wedding was to show a slide-show of some of the ceremony and park photos during the reception. She did this in a informal and unintrusive, yet professional and high quality way. All the images were from earlier in the day and were put together in a professional slide-show format, and we have heard so many wonderful comments from guests as to how nice that was, and how amazing the photos were!

Highly, highly, highly recommended.

She is affordable and would highly recommend her to anyone needing pictures for anything, engagement, wedding and children. She has done two of the three for me and will soon be photographing my newborn as well.

Amy is an amazingly talented photographer. She truly captured the best of us in our engagement pictures and on our wedding day. We loved working with her. The only reason she is not a perfect 5/5 is that she is a bit pricier than some other photographers. However, you do get what you pay for. We budgeted accordingly because we knew we wanted beautiful pictures that we could treasure for years to come. Her work quality is impeccable and she is very quick to fix any errors or glitches along the way. Her photos can be more artistic than some (be aware that not every picture will be straight-on looking at the camera), but this brings about a natural look to the photos. She is able to capture little moments that aren't posed or expected, and those have become some of our favorite pictures.

Overall, we highly recommend Amy for your wedding or any other event you want to capture in a special way.

Amy and her assistant did a fabulous job at our wedding. They were attentive to the schedule that we had set up, and they got all the images and more that I had asked for! Amy did a great job of getting my large family rounded up and the little kiddos smiling for the pictures. Our guests loved the slideshow of our wedding day pictures that Amy set up at the reception. During our first engagement session, we had crazy rainy weather, preventing us from getting all the shots we wanted. However, Amy was gracious enough to reschedule another session for us to make up for it! We are SO thrilled with our photos, and have them displayed all over our house. We have received countless compliments from family and friends on Amy's professionalism and expertise as a photographer.

We were delighted with our images from both our engagement session, as well as the actual wedding. Not only were we pleased, we received equally rave reviews from friends and family. When it came time to select images for our album, it was an incredibly hard decision - there were so many great options! Amy and her staff were super easy to work with, and any questions or concerns I had were answered in a prompt and professional manner. Of all the things to stress over with a wedding, I was never once worried about the photography portion.
