Hi, I'm ANDA (Rhymes with panda).

"above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference."-RObert frank

It's pretty simple ... I love what I do and I work really hard at it.

Although the Midwest is home, I somehow fall in love with every city, everywhere. I could sit for hours (days, really) beside the Pacific Ocean waves ... and NYC rooftops have my heart.

I enjoy meals shared with friends, nights at the lake, reading, contemporary art, South America, bonfires, singing along to Sharon Van Etten, Shovels & Rope, Radiohead, and Gregory Alan Isakov (to name a few ;)), yoga and The Packers, bourbon and hammocks.


I believe wedding photography should be real, interesting, engaging, and tell a complete story. I'm bored by artificial and overly staged photography ... and I never want to make cheesy imagery. I still take family photos & such, but my focus is on the real moments.

If you're a bit nontraditional and value real, candid photography ... and if what you see on my site resonates with you ... I hope we can talk!
