Words do not speak enough volumes to the incredible work Ideal Impressions (especially Ryan and Joel) provided my husband and I on the day of our wedding. The services we were provided was impeccable and top-notch. Ryan and Joel made our day special and personable and brought great energy and enthusiasm to our wedding party. They also captured those priceless "candids" that most brides and grooms miss. And finally, the final products were breath taking. We could never have imagined the perfection and detail they were able to capture in EVERY picture. Not to mention all of our photos were ready the next day!!! Our guests started commenting immediately and continue to do so to this day. As stated previously, words can not describe the happiness my husband and I have every time we look at our wedding photos. We are so happy and pleased we chose Ideal Impressions (especially Ryan and Joel)!

Perfection is the best word to describe Ideal Impressions! We had the privilege of having both Ryan and his wife Krista fly to Fort Myers Beach, FL to shoot our wedding photography and we couldn't be happier! From first communications through after the wedding, they were simply amazing. Communication, attention to detail, and professionalism were all outstanding! Ryan would take pictures for days if he could, which made us feel special on our big day!! The photos are indescribably perfect... from our first look to wedding party and family photos, to all our special moments throughout the day- they captured everything! They were even able to get great pictures while dealing with our loud, obnoxious (at times) and fun wedding party! We decided to pass on a videographer and have Ryan make us a photofusion video- BEST DECISION EVER! Every special moment of our day (photos and video clips) are put together perfectly in a seven minute video that we will watch for the rest of our lives! We wouldn't have changed a thing! If you are looking for amazing wedding photography, Ideal Impressions is the way to go!!!!!! Thanks again Ryan & Krista!!!

We worked with Brook Cervenka for our engagement session and her and two other photographers (their names are escaping me right now and I feel terrible about that because they were awesome!) for our wedding and I can't say enough wonderful things. Brook was so personable and wonderful to work with. She immediately put us totally at ease and got so many great shots because we were constantly laughing and smiling. She was so easy to email, call, text, whatever. She was honestly INCREDIBLE on the wedding day. She and the other photographers just did their own thing while we got ready and we barely noticed them. She caught every little detail (even me and a bridesmaid brushing our teeth very carefully after having our makeup done- whoops! It's one of my favorite photos though). They just took my dress and rings, accessories, etc outside and got so many cool shots while we were getting hair and makeup done. Looking back I was shocked they did so much without me even realizing! Brook even helped button up my dress when we were running late, which I was so grateful for. Every time I looked at her with nervousness about the time she just said "we're fine! it's all fine! we're going to be fine!" She really put me at ease. If I could make a recommendation I would say plan for way more time than you think you'll need because you will want as many of these fantastic photos as you can get! We wish we could have afforded to keep them there longer. It is expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for and you own the rights to the photos afterwards which is honestly priceless. My other recommendation would be to pay the extra money and get the photo fusion video. It's my favorite thing we did because it captures the best photos and video snipets of our precious day and we got to see it THAT NIGHT right after dinner! It totally gives you the whole feeling of the day and you get to set it to music of your choice. So awesome! Thanks Brook!

We talked to several photographers last year when planning our wedding and it did not take long for Ideal Impressions to stand out! We were immediately impressed by the flexibility and value of the packages they offered. We worked with Ryan and Joe and they proved to be a great team for both our engagement and wedding day photos. The customer service is outstanding-Ryan listened to what we wanted and delivered everything (and much more!) on our wish list . We could not have been happier with the quality of the pictures-their turnaround time was fantastic. They are a great value-not only did they capture our special day in pictures, but also within the photofusion that we received the next day. The day flew by so fast, and I am grateful that we have these memories to look back on. We just received our album and I am still blown away by how great everything turned out. I highly recommend Ideal Impressions to any Wisconsin bride who is still looking for a photographer!

Ideal impressions exceeded every expectation I had for wedding photography. We worked with Ryan and Josh, and they were absolutely amazing! While planning our wedding, we knew that photos were the most important vendor to us. After reading all the reviews on Ideal Impressions and speaking with some friends who had used them for their wedding, we decided to book them, too. Every positive review was so true. They were very professional, very fun, and made our wedding day extremely stress-free and easy. The photos turned out perfect, and the photo fusion video at our reception blew everyone away (I cry every time I watch that video). Another plus -- with Ideal Impressions, we didn't even have to book a videographer because they took care of filming all the important parts of the day. I would highly recommend Ideal Impressions to anyone looking to capture their wedding day in the best way possible! This team is outstanding.

Wow, I can not say enough good things about Ideal Impressions. Scottie and Heather were our photographers and were absolutely amazing! We had met with Scottie prior to the wedding to discuss what kind of photos we wanted to capture. With both of us being Military, Scottie had suggested a shoot with an American flag. Not only did he bring his own flag from home (we were in from out of town), but the shots turned out absolutely incredible! As we were folding it up after the shot, they managed to snap a few without us looking and it ended up being my favorite photo of the day, so personnal and special. At one point he even jumped in the water to get a better angle of us on the pier:) Heather spent the early afternoon with the groomsmen, and being typical guys were not into getting their pictures taken. Heather made it so much fun for them, and they ended up having a blast! The link to all of the photographs was available to us the next morning, and we were blown away. Sooo many great shots, and friends and family said that they had never seen such amazing wedding photos. They were both great to work with, flexible with all of our ideas, and brought some great ones of their own as well. I didn't want the day to be over, but I'm so thankful that we have such an amazing album to look back at. Thank you for making our day such a positive and memorable one!! We can not thank you enough!!!!!

Ideal Impressions has been wonderful to work with from the beginning. They make it easy to pay via paypal in whateve increments you want until a week or so before the wedding. Heather took the photos for our wedding while Caleb took video. They were both so easyand fun to work with, especially for someone who doesn't especially like photos being taken of themself. Our engagement pictures turned out great and I am even further impressed with our wedding photos and photofusion. I had some photos to me the same day and even more the following day! Their turn around time is wonderful! I love how you can access your photos quickly! I highly recommend Ideal Impressions Photography and Heather and Caleb!!

Ryan and Joe did a wonderful job. We are so happy with the quality and creativity of the pictures. Ryan and Joe were so professional and accommodating the day of the wedding. They always made sure we were ahead of schedule the day of, which was reassuring because we have very large families and had many people to take photos with. Throughout the planning process, Ryan was so great to work with. He was quick to respond to emails and made me feel at ease with his experience and flexibility. At the reception, Ryan offered an iPad photo booth...the guests loved this. Also, he displayed a same day wedding slide show which was unbelievable ...we got so many compliments on those photos from our guests. If that is not enough to convince you of Ryan's talents...the marketing director of the vendor in which we got married just asked if they could use some wedding photos for a resort magazine...how amazing! Going with Ryan with ideal impressions was one of the best wedding decisions my husband and I made!

We could not say better things about Ideal Impressions and Scottie (our photographer) and Ryan. From the very beginning contacting them all the way until the the end of wedding night and beyond, they have been absolutely incredible and supportive and willing to go the extra mile for us! My biggest concern going in is that my husband and I wanted to keep it traditional and not see each other prior to the ceremony. Yet didn't have 3-4 hours in between the ceremony and reception for photos. So I was afraid that we wouldn't be able to fit it all in. But Scottie was game and ready and was even able to get us a quick change of location in between. He got us everything we wanted, needed and more! I remember him saying to my at the very beginning, "I am here for you and I am your official time keeper, to keep you on schedule and on time for whatever you want and need on wedding day." And he kept good on that promise! Even checking in with me two days before the wedding just to see how I was holding up and talking about how excited he was for the big day! It really made my husband and I feel so cared for and stress free on wedding day, knowing that Scottie had it all under control! Not to mention waking up the following morning with our jaws almost on the floor at how amazing the photos turned out! Thank you so much Scottie, for everything! :)

When planning a wedding, things can quickly start spinning out of control and all of the decisions that need to be made can be overwhelming. The best...BEST wedding planning decision that I made was selecting Ideal Impressions to capture my big day. It was the best investment by far and away. Scottie Peterson was a delight. He was professional, fun, patient, accommodating, honest, realistic...not to mention calming. The quality of service was unparalleled. Words do not express my satisfaction with Ideal Impressions and the amazing talent that you get when you hire them. Post wedding, I look back on the whole planning process and there are a million things that I would have done differently. Hiring Ideal Impressions is not one of them. If you want to enjoy your day of event and still be able to look back on all of the amazing moments that whirled by during that day, hire Ideal Impressions. You won't regret it.
