let's start at the very beginning...

It was a chilly September day in 2006. My mom had brought me along to visit her friend Laura. This was before smartphones (I didn't even have a cell phone yet!) so I asked my mom if I could play around with her little point and shoot camera. I ran around their huge backyard, taking pictures of trees and rocks and flowers and the sun. I didn't know what I was doing when Laura grabbed her Canon AE-1 from her closet and loaded it with a roll of film for me. I focused, clicked the shutter, and hoped for the best.

Something clicked that day all those years ago.

I knew I could never let this go.

hey there friend!

I'm Anna Gutermuth. (GOO-ter-MOO-th) Nobody knows how to say my last name, haha. I'm used to it. (Just please don't call me Gutter-mouth!) I am a Wisconsin-based photographer that specializes in wedding and lifestyle photography. I have a love affair with the little things in life. I basically live in graphic tees and my favorite leggings. Hanging out with my boyfriend, Justin, and our two cats, Whiskers and Mew, is my favorite place to be. I love a good cup of coffee, curling up on the couch under a blanket I knit myself, and 30-second dance parties. (They're the best form of stress relief.)

 

Chase the joy is my business and more or less my life motto. I believe in capturing the magic of everyday life, which is why lifestyle photography is my passion. I am endlessly inspired by golden sunlight and long shadows, belly laughs, and the sweetness of a forehead kiss. Whether it's your wedding day or your family session, I love capturing the big, show-stopping moments of your special day, but my heart really lies in the details. The candid moments. The quiet pockets of magic that you don't even realize are happening. Those are the moments I want you to be able to remember forever.
