"Heidi and her husband were amazing!! They were so easy to work with. Heidi was very organized. She was very professional but still made it feel like she was a life long friend. The quality of her pictures were amazing. It was very beneficial to have two photographers. We definitely recommend her to everyone!" - Cecily
Avant-Garde Wedding & Portrait Photography
The definition for a·vant-garde: new and unusual or experimental ideas, especially in the arts, or the people introducing them.
Being a professional photographer not only are you always learning new things within your trade, but you must be open to it. While with years and years of experience in your field and mastering your craft, you are always finding new and beautiful ways to utilize your skills. Photography for us is a way of journaling with light and images, painting masterpieces that tell a powerful story.
We are a husband and wife team, specializing in weddings, portraits, and boudoir photography, and we believe in helping you tell your story.
Heidi is an artist, a storyteller, a wine enthusiast, and a hopeless romantic. Being a part of the art community has always been important to her. She enjoys traveling, personal photography projects, watching movies, and of course spending time with her husband.
Chad is also an artist, coffee lover, drummer, and musical mastermind. Chad has had several records produced both independently and with his band. He spends a great deal of time working on his latest project, a 91 Chevy Beauville, which he and his wife plan on converting to a camper van for their many travels.
We are not only photographers of the Midwest, but love to travel to locations all over the world for various projects. We pride ourselves on building long lasting relationships with our clients and delivering quality service with great attention to detail.
We are always inspired by the human interactions and connections going on around us. We take pictures of beautiful moments so that they are always available for us to revisit. Behind every photograph, there is a story, and photography is truly the greatest way we know how to portray these wonderful tales.
You are creating the memories, we are creating the photographs.
