Hello! We are Matt & Krista Fornear of Fornear Photo. As a young married couple ourselves we feel we can really connect with our offbeat clients on a personal level since we too are young, fun, tattooed, pierced and creative! Our home base is Eagle River, Wisconsin in the heart of the Northwoods but we have shot throughout all of Wisconsin as well as parts of Upper Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota. Needless to say we love to travel, so please don't be shy to ask for our pricing and availability for all over the Midwest and beyond! Also, do not 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.

Our style of photography mostly consists of the photojournalism/documentary variety with a few posed shots thrown in for mom and pop. All wedding packages are based on the time we start not the time we end so you NEVER have to worry that we will miss anything from your important day. In addition, there are always two shooters (the both of us), edited high-res photo DVD(s), select prints per package, password protected photo gallery on our website to share with family & friends and lastly a FREE engagement session again with an edited high-res photo DVD (included on our All Day packages only).

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

You’re Offbeat, we’re Offbeat… lets get started! Not only are we skilled photographers but in addition, Matt has a background in media arts and Krista is an experienced graphic and packaging designer that gives us an unique perspective that we love to share. Our creativity combined with your vision will help the nontraditional wedding client’s story shine in every possible way. So much care and thought goes into the planning of all weddings but the offbeat ones hold a special place in our artistic hearts! Going above and beyond is something we love, whether it is scouting out fun new locations ahead of time or making/preparing quirky props, this is something we enjoy to do as a couple and we feel it shows in our work. Walking away from shooting a wedding knowing our clients are now our friends and that they will share their experiences from working with us to their family and friends is one of our greatest compliments. When we are not shooting weddings, we are shooting events like beer fests, bike riding Santas to music events. You can also find us exploring the Great Lakes region, playing Xbox, drinking craft beer, snowshoeing, hunting for vintage records and watching/reading classics like Psycho or The Shining.

Fornear Photo will be offering a 10×20 Float Mounted Metal Print from your wedding when you mention this ad from Offbeat Bride!

Examples of my work

Stop by the Fornear Photo website or the Fornear Photo Facebook page to learn a bit more about us! Our slideshows and Wedding Favorites Gallery shows off just some of our adventures of shooting everything from a beer loving tattooed bride and groom, Japanese gardens with Samurai swords, World of Warcraft groom’s cake, a bowling alley reception and much more! We have been fortunate to have worked with many great clients ranging from the mildly offbeat to the full fledged creative. We believe our photos tell a story and speak for themselves!
