We believe that great imagery begins with great planning and a great understanding of your story.
We will meet in a casual setting to chat about your vision and how we can document it perfectly. 
We are interested in working with inspiring people that will not shield their true emotions from us and our cameras. We love tears just as much as we love laughter and smiles.
We are also huge animal lovers, so if you have a furry friend, please do not forget to mention them!

We LOVE LOVE LOVE to travel and are available worldwide. Events located within the USA have a base travel fee. Travel rates vary for weddings located outside of USA.

 We are currently based in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin but we will happily pack our bags and meet you wherever you are! We love to travel. We love adventure. We will go wherever there is a story to tell... which is everywhere.

Q. Where are you based? 

 You will receive a collection of both color and black & white images. These images are presented in an online gallery that allows you to share with your family and friends. You can order professional prints which are shipped directly to your home. You will also receive a USB with of all finalized images for you to print and share as much as you like.

Q. What do we receive?

 We are Canon + Nikon people. We always shoot with multiple Canon or Nikon professional bodies and lenses. We love using natural light, so you probably will not see us use our flashes unless absolutely necessary.

Q. What gear do you use?

Ren: I will never ever say no to food within the Pacific rim. I am a huge sucker for sushi, seshwan covered anything, miso soup, rice noodles, and of course, a great fortune.
Caleb: Sandwiches.

Q. What is your favorite food?

 Fantastic question! We really love travelling and have been lucky enough to photograph some amazing weddings in some pretty incredible locations. Iceland, Mexico, Jamaica and more. To continue traveling we try and keep our travelling costs as economical as possible, but they usual entail helping cover flights and a few nights accommodation. However in saying that, if it is a great location, we have been known to be very generous.

Q. We are getting married 
Overseas/Outside of the Midwest. 
How much does it cost for you to travel?

Our advice, go with your gut! Take a good look through the portfolios of the photographers you like and see which one speaks to your emotions the most. Do you like our photos? Do our photos make you FEEL something? Did you read our ABOUT section? Did that seem to sit well with you? We will have several months before your wedding to build a strong relationship, and then will be with you all day on your wedding day, so trust me when we say, we want you to like us, even better, we want to be your FRIENDS.

Q. There are so many photographers; 
how do I choose? 

Once you have decided on a date and collection you will pay a retainer that will secure your wedding date booking. The remaining balance is due 60 days prior to wedding day.

Q. When and How do I book?  

Absolutely!! We will talk extensively about your wants, wishes, and plans in regards to photographing in the best lighting conditions and capturing all the events throughout your celebration. No matter the outline of your day, please know that we are more than happy to help create a workable schedule for you.

Q. Can you help us with 
our timeline? 

Ren: I still can not easily put into words why exactly I love photographing weddings. But here goes. . . It truly is a hybrid of things. I love photographing couples in love. I love learning and capturing the emotions that come with the journey prior to the actual wedding day. I love getting a look into other people’s lives. I love watching two people interact with each other. I love learning what people cherish most. I love witnessing and documenting the good times, the sad and stressful times equally; I just love all of the emotions that fuel each moment.

Q. Why are you wedding photographers?

Thank you!

For her talent, I expected a more prideful personality. I am so impressed with her friendly demeanor and how much she seems to truly care about her clients. Her approach to her business relationships is similar to how a friend would approach another friend, I think that speaks volumes. Being treated like a friend rather than a client has left a very positive lasting effect.

Any of my friends can attest 
that I don't usually like photos 
of myself, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the photos from our wedding.

Ren and Caleb of Studio 29 Photography are wedding photography rock stars. They are professional, creative, and just overall amazing people. 
I met Ren when she was photographing my best friend's wedding last fall and the minute I got engaged she was my first vendor call. Ren truly cares about her brides and goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are happy. The signature tag of her emails reads "Delivering Happiness" and that is truly what Studio 29 Photography does. Ren is a Milwaukee based photographer and I hired them to shoot my Chicago wedding 
because they are so fantastic. 
The aesthetic of their work is truly remarkable. Her turnaround time for photo previews is also incredibly fast, which was important to me. 
If you are looking for a personal experience with high quality photos, Studio 29 is a no brainer. Highly, highly recommend.

What can I say about Ren...other than that she is absolutely incredible--
as a photographer and a person.
I first found out about Ren when friends of ours had their engagement and wedding photos taken by her. After seeing their images I was hooked. She captured such special and intimate moments and I knew that was something that I wanted in my wedding photos.
As soon I got engaged, she was at the top of contact list. I reached out to her via email and soon after we met up to talk in person. That's when we realized how personable/kind/real she is. I immediately felt as if I had made a new friend. She was so easy to talk with and was really interested in learning our love story--that meant a lot. 
As the wedding was approaching, we wanted to get together again to talk details. She graciously took time out of her own crazy/hectic/stressful wedding week to meet up with us. I mean, seriously, how sweet is that!?
On the wedding day, she arrived early and I could feel that she shared the genuine excitement that I was feeling. :) We had so much fun doing our first look, and walking around town taking photos with her. She had us laughing/smiling/relaxed the whole time. She was also able to handle our giant wedding party (Thanks Ren!). 
As brides know, the wedding day FLIES by. I felt like the whole thing was a blur. As soon as I got the images in the mail, I was immediately brought back and able to relive and feel the emotions of the day. I had the biggest smile on my face as I obsessively clicked through the photos trying to find a favorite. I quickly realized that I couldn't choose JUST one. They were all so beautiful/fun/us. 
We got so many compliments for our photos and I just kept telling them all "Yeah, Ren killed it!"
THANK YOU SO MUCH REN for capturing our big day. We had so much fun and we love our photos so much. Expect a call/email/text for the next big moments in our lives so you can document those too! 
We love you! :)

Seriously, I still have people reaching out and asking about our engagement and our wedding pictures. Not only are Ren's pictures beautiful, breath-taking, and wonderful, her and her husband Caleb are just as outstanding. They are so personable, thoughtful, passionate, and hilarious. And can we mention their adorable dog that got to attend meetings? :) From the day we booked Studio 29, I knew it was the best decision we made to make our wedding dreams come true. Ren was there to guide me through the processes and answer all my questions, she not only was our wedding photographer, her and Caleb quickly became our friends. She always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, which can be a really scary thing! We would HIGHlY recommend Studio 29 to photograph your special day, I promise it will be the most incredible experience, with even more OUTSTANDING pictures.

As a designer myself, finding a photographer for our wedding was extremely important – and one of the few details I made sure I had a say! It was important for us to find someone with the right blend of tools (motivated, creative, talented, artistic, quirky, personable, professional and FUN) to be part of our special day.... and I tell ya what, Studio 29 NAILED IT! It was comforting to know we could relax and and soak up our wedding day with great friends and family – while they scooted all around Turner Hall, capturing all the memories in real time. Finding a photographer was more than a business transaction for us. My wife Lisa and I wanted all of our personalities to mesh, and studio 29 flawlessly fit the mold. Highly recommended, extremely reasonable
rates, and very talented!
