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.

Studio 29 was the first vendor I booked; the first step I took in wedding planning. Photos were something that were very important to us. We wanted a photographer that wouldn't be in our face the whole day and would capture real moments. I came across Studio 29 Photography on Married in Milwaukee and immediately fell in love. I set up a time to meet with Ren and left the appointment thinking.. man I want to be her friend, she's awesome. After booking Ren I asked for her advice on EVERYTHING. She became my go-to for all things wedding. She suggested a make-up artist, created perfectly designed chalk boards for us, and I even asked her opinion on our first dance song. The day of the wedding we were so at ease with Ren and Caleb. We never felt uncomfortable or unnatural which was super important to us. We could joke around and have fun with them. It felt like they were part of the wedding party. I've never really been a fan of looking at photos of myself but when we got our wedding photos back I cried. They were so beautiful, unique, and intimate. The little moments of the day were so perfectly captured. I cannot thank Ren and Caleb enough. They are so unbelievably talented and so very humble. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and I will definitely be a return costumer in the future.

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.

What can I say about Ms. Ren Davis and Studio 29 aside from the obvious? Upon meeting her for the very first time, one can’t help but notice the sweet disposition and incredibly warm composure she exudes. One also can’t help but fall madly in love with her old soul and undeniable passion for life and what she does best – photography. It’s that demeanor that makes everyone want to be around her, and it’s that passion that gets her booked time and time again and featured over and over again. I wish I knew more about photography to adequately articulate just how beautiful, vibrant, precise, unique, and diverse Ren’s work is, but if you’ve seen it, you know that sometimes words can’t even describe. “A picture is worth a thousand words,” as they say. Ren’s work is the reason I have both laughed and cried all with one glimpse. Ren is the sole reason why people are standing around my computer screen ooohing and aaahing. I cannot wait to see what this world has to offer Ms. Ren Davis.

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!

Before I was even engaged I knew who I wanted to take my wedding pictures. Studio 29 was a staple to my Facebook and pintrest page and there wasn't (and still isn't) a time that one of Ren's photos would pop up that I couldn't help but like or re-pin it. Once my husband and I had a date on the calendar, I had a contract with Ren. Ren was extremely easy to work with. She was very flexible when scheduling engagement sessions, and quick to answer any questions I had when planning out the wedding. There are times when I can be an over planner, however when it came to wedding pictures I felt extremely laid back. I contribute this 100% to Ren; I knew that with her eye and ability to see every detail around her that not one shot or part of the wedding would be missed. Not to mention she does this in such a way that guests and even myself don't even notice that she is there. This ability to blend in with the church, party, and environment generates the most candid, beautiful shots. Sometimes I think she may have had a magic invisibility cloak. Speaking of magic, as I look back at pictures now 2 months later, I am still seeing details that I missed on the big day. From catching the few minutes of beautiful blue sky we had(wondrously out the same time as group pictures), to capturing reflections in puddles I never even noticed were there. It is almost as if she herself magically placed them there just for the picture. After the wedding her magic showed again.. within two days we had a sneak peak posted to her blog & 150+ photos edited in a preview album. This was amazing because I was able to share these with friends, family, and co-workers that weren't able to come to the wedding while it was still so fresh and new. One co-worker even went out of her way to say "Megan, your wedding photos are some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing, your pictures are just incredible!". Also Before we even hit our one month anniversary Ren had edited all 1300+ of our pictures and we had the cds of all of them in hand. If that's not magic, then she must not sleep and edit through the night! Aside from my choice of husband, Studio 29 & Ren was the best choice I made for my wedding day. I could not be more grateful in having her there so I can have such a beautiful reminder of such a special day. I will forever cherish all the pictures Ren has taken for me. Forever in the future, she will be the only person I will trust in immortalizing all of my special moments and the one person I will recommend to family and friends. If there are any brides out there looking for a photographer I suggest hiring the only one I suspect has magical powers, Ren Davis, Studio 29!

It's hard to describe my thanks and gratitude for the wedding photos. Ren + Caleb were able to capture the day perfectly. They are professionals that deliver the highest quality product. I will cherish their work the rest of my life! I strongly recommend Studio 29. They are the most compassionate, talented, efficient, hard working people and I am LUCKY to have had the honor to use them for my wedding!

My first thought is why are there only 5 stars to give? Ren & Caleb definitely deserve about 100 stars! I can't even begin to explain my happiness with my wedding photography. I was OBSESSING over Studio 29 Photography since before I was engaged. The moment I began planning: CONTACT REN! I was determined to not set a wedding date until I knew if she was available. The first time I met Ren it was over coffee at Colectivo coffee and at that moment I knew I wanted her to be the one to document the most precious day of my life, the conversation with her was so natural and I could see her passion for photography in the way she talked. Booking with Studio 29 Photography with the best decision I made in my wedding planning (Besides of course saying YES to the proposal :)) I booked with them before I even had a venue picked out!! When we had our engagement shoot Ren made my fiance and I so comfortable around the camera, we laughed A LOT! (So did Ren-- even more reason why she's amazing!!). Our engagement pictures turned out so beautiful! I was so impressed by the next day I already had seen a few "sneak peek" photos! I was AMAZED by how beautiful they were, and received so many compliments on them. Throughout the wedding planning process I spoke with Ren often and asked her opinion on many things, she was always so easy to get in contact with. Two weeks before the wedding I had asked Ren to make some calligraphy boards before the wedding and she happily agreed and they were stunning! She is a woman of many talents! The day of the wedding Ren and Caleb arrived on time with smiles on their faces!! Our wedding day photos are stunning already and we haven't even seen all of them (we are so impressed with the amount of photos we have to view already and the wedding was only two weeks ago) They are THE DREAM TEAM! If you are looking for a team that's punctual, energetic, flexible, outgoing, relatable, AND fun to be around you should STOP YOUR SEARCH NOW because they are the DYNAMIC DUO!
