Welcome to Andi Stempniak Photography serving Western Wisconsin and beyond, where we believe in stylish, timeless and authentic photos.
Andi has been a photographer for more than 15 years. She gained a foothold in the industry with her keen photojournalistic eye, and honed her personal style by shooting for a fashion and lifestyle blog. But her passion is people. Photographing weddings, and personal moments are her specialty. She does it in a way that puts her subjects at ease while creating photos that will withstand the test of time.
A note from premier photographer, Andi Stempniak:
My passion for photography is in the storytelling – making images of moments in time to be preserved for years. Whether it’s the look on his face when he first sees you in your wedding dress or the sparkle in her eyes when she says “I do,” I am honored to be witness to these moments. It’s my pleasure to create photos you will cherish for years to come.
"Andi laughed and joked with us, which brought out our natural laughs and smiles!"
I live and breathe photography now, but in high school I was just learning about the craft. My dad had an old Pentax camera lying around and it piqued my curiosity. I still remember the weight of the mostly metal camera body gripped tightly in the palm of my hand. I hate to date myself, but digital cameras for lay people were not yet available. This was my first real experience with creating an image. To me, it was art. I photographed whatever I could – many times I used a cemetery as my subject. It was peaceful and beautiful. I was able to explore images of everyday things in a new way, and it became my passion. )
Today I look back on that time as a birth of sorts. I no longer take pictures of headstones, but I haven’t lost that fire to turn each photo into something beautiful and extraordinary. Each year I shoot a number of weddings, and I haven’t lost that drive to make unique, timeless photos from each of those milestone events. This is my heart. This is my passion.
Unlike other vendors, you'll be working very closely with your wedding photographer for the majority of the day. Every couple should feel like their wedding photographer is a part of the family. Investing in a wedding photographer who can hurdle all wedding day obstacles is essential in creating timeless, authentic images.
