About Fornear Photo

Creative photography for weddings & engagements traveling the Midwest & beyond!


Hello- we are Matt & Krista Fornear of Fornear Photo and we are Northwoods wedding photographers! As a married couple ourselves (celebrating 10yrs married this year!) we feel we can really connect with all of our clients (especially the offbeat bride wedding ones) on a personal level since we too are outgoing, tattooed, pierced and creative. Our wedding photography style is fun, vibrant and colorful, just like you! 

Being Eagle River wedding photographers we have a passion for taking great wedding and engagement photos and love the Northwoods so when couples want to get married Up North and have a Northern Wisconsin wedding, they are especially close to our very own hearts! So if you are tying the knot or having your destination wedding where you have vacationed for many years looking for a Minocqua wedding photographer, St.Germain wedding photographer, Manitowish Waters wedding photographer, Rhinelander wedding photographer, Three Lakes wedding photographer or Land o' Lakes wedding photographer be sure to contact Fornear Photo today!

Some of our very favorite Northwoods wedding venues include weddings at Wild Eagle Lodge, Eagle Waters Resort, Black Bear Lodge, Whitetail Inn, The Waters of Minocqua, Norwood Pines, The Campanile Center For the Arts, Rosewood Barn, Holiday Acres Resort and Pinewood Country Club. Brides and grooms.... you can also have an incredibly beautiful lakeside cermony as your very own backyard wedding... it's all about the effort that you put into it and your wedding can be just as beautiful as any venue too!

Don't forget though, we LOVE to travel! Whether it's anywhere in Wisconsin or other great cities like Minneapolis or Chicago, we have photographed nuptials throughout all of the Midwest so we love Upper Michigan weddings, Illinois weddings, Minnesota weddings, Indiana weddings and even Las Vegas weddings too. Needless to say, we love to get out of the Northwoods from time to time so please don't be shy to ask for our pricing and availability for all over the Midwest and beyond! Also, do not let our small town roots fool you, between the two of us we have lived in the metropolises of Phoenix AZ, Chicago IL, and Milwaukee WI so we can relate to many different clients, big city or rural alike.

Generally, our Midwest wedding photography packages are based on the time we start not the time we end so you NEVER have to worry that we will miss anything from your important day. That said, we provide you with a custom quote based on your needs whether you are looking for a full day of coverage to elopement photography, we have you covered.

In addition, there are always two shooters (the both of us), edited high-res digital photos, password protected photo gallery on our website to share with family & friends and lastly a FREE engagement session (included on our All Day packages only). Other items we can provide for you are night photography, print packages, albums and our open air photo booth.

If you still aren't sure who to book for your wedding photography be sure to read the reviews our amazing past clients have left for us right here on WeddingWire, in fact, because of them we have even won the Couple's Choice Award 4yrs running.

We look forward to talking to you soon! ~ Matt & Krista

Fornear Photo was recommended to us by a friend of a friend. I went online and checked out their work and was immediately impressed! Matt and Krista were very quick to respond to any email I sent throughout the whole process of planning. Besides the amazing photos I saw online, I loved that they included an engagement photo shoot in their price to be able to get to known us as a couple before hand. Another huge reason on hiring Fornear Photo was not having a time limit on our wedding day. I remember them telling us "we will be there as early as you need and stay as late as you want and won't leave until you think we've taken enough photos of your day". They did just that!
Matt and Krista are AMAZING! We couldn't be more happy with our choice to have them as our wedding photographers! They are both extremely nice, personable and very professional. We have been having so many friends and family members commenting on our photos from Fornear and saying that some of them look like they should be in a magazine! They do amazing work! I highly recommend Fornear Photo to anyone and everyone!! Thanks again, Matt and Krista! You guys are THE BEST! -Brie and Corey

We LOVED working with Matt and Krista. I can't imagine a better team to capture our favorite day. They were awesome at communicating throughout our planning process, they took amazing engagement pictures for us, then made our wedding day everything we wanted and more. Our weekend didn't quite turn out as planned.... We were rained out of pretty much every plan we made and our whole schedule was pushed back due to an unforeseen event. Matt and Krista didn't skip a beat. They went with the flow all day, kept me calm (which was probably quite a task at times) and took beautiful, amazing pictures. We chose them because we wanted the look they created, the vibrant, beautiful colors they are able to capture. They fit our personalities more than any other photographer I can imagine. I hope to use them again and again in the future for family pictures and whatever other photographer needs we may have!! They are the best!

Professional Network & Endorsements

Fornear Photo was such an amazing company to work with. They were on top of their game always and you could tell the bride and groom absolutely loved them. As a DJ, we love the photographers that come up to us and introduce themselves, and want to work with us as a team. Matching our paperwork and to make sure we are on the same page for all events occurring throughout the evening. Fornear wanted to work together, and make sure they knew when the grand march, toasts, special dances and so on would be taking place. They are a great company and we look forward to working with them again in the future!

Most couples can't really do the Coke/Pepsi challenge, when it comes to picking the team for their perfect day. Luckily, we do weddings week in, week out and can confirm that Fornear bring a fantastic, professional ethic to make their couple's day spectacular. It was a pleasure working with them, and I can't wait to see the rest of the shots from the day, if the sneak peek was anything to go by! Highly recommended.

I had the chance to work with Fornear Photography at an event in St. Germain WI. On 8-23-2014 which is actually the date I am writing this, that is how great they are, I couldn't even wait to write this. They are an amazing team!! They made the bride and grooms day. They are great to work with. I would definitely recommend them to any bride and groom looking for a fun team to capture the special moments at their wedding!

Matt and Krista were really great to work with, and were great at being flexible and adopting to changing timelines due to circumstances outside of any vendor's control. They were easy to chat with, easy to work with to coordinate events throughout the day, and from what I hear from our bride and groom, the pictures have been fantastic! Fornear Photo made such an impression on me that they are even listed on my own website as a preferred vendor!
