Scott and Cathy are absolutely amazing and genuine people! They are always there for you during the whole process, whenever you need them, answering all your questions and helping you out. They are very professional and the best in the business in my opinion. They did our wedding and the amount of pictures they take, attention to detail, and quality of service was outstanding! Then when you receive your final product and there one of a kind books in your hand you will be amazed!! Don't get me wrong, it's a little pricey but you know the saying " you get what you pay for ", and your paying for the best and will receive the best! You will not be disappointed!Sent on 10/19/2015

I am not from Wisconsin and I was the most nervous about picking my photographer for my wedding out of all of my vendors. Ambiance Studios was the first photographers that I found and met with and I absolutely LOVE them and I immediately wanted to pick them, however I knew I needed to be smart and still look around and interview other photographers. Everyone else I met with were just blah, nothing exciting, nothing stood out about them, they didn't seem to love their work like Scott and Cathy. We decided that there is no one else like Scott and Cathy so we picked them and never looked back! I had such a blast with them at my wedding and they captured absolutely everything! I have so much to pick from and such a beautiful selection of pictures, it is actually going to be hard to choose my photos for my album because they did such a spectacular job! I have received so many compliments on how great and fun Scott and Cathy were at the wedding, my photos after they were edited and the pictures that were shown at the wedding that weren't edited were beautiful. I am still receiving compliments and guest are still bring up Scott and Cathy when they talk about my wedding. Out of all my vendors Scott and Cathy were by far my best choice! If you aren't sold yet, let me tell you, STOP looking else where, the people to capture your special day is Scott and Cathy!! They are definitely THE BEST!Sent on 12/06/2013

Scott and Cathy did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a great photographer for their wedding!! For me, the most important thing about our wedding was the photographer and the pictures. It’s what we are going to look at and remember for the rest of our lives – so I wanted a truly amazing photographer, and that’s definitely what I got. They both have such an eye for detail and passion for photography – you can see it in all the pictures they take. They truly love what they do and it shows! One of the best things about them is the amount of photos they took – I have so many to choose from! The one thing I wanted for my wedding was an amazing photographer and amazing pictures – and that’s exactly what I got. Thank you Scott and Cathy!Sent on 11/04/2013

I met Scott and Cathy at a bridal fair and fell in love with them instantly! Their work is incredible and their personalities are a bonus. My husband and I meshed well with them right from the beginning, which made it easy and comfortable. They did an amazing job with timing and making sure the flow of our day was on time. They have such a great eye for detail and always made sure when taking photos that everyone was in place. We are so anxious to get our wedding book, I have never seen anything like them with any other photographer. I would definitely recommend them!!Sent on 09/25/2013

Scott and Cathy were absolutely awesome! They did an unbelievable job of capturing the moments from our wedding day that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. They did a great job of photographing everything you could possibly ask for beginning with the pre-ceremony photo shoots to the ceremony and of course onto the reception. Their experience and knowledge of photographing weddings was a huge asset in our planning process. We couldn't be happier with them and would gladly recommend them to anyone.Sent on 10/02/2013

Amazing photographers, amazing people. Scott and Cathy shot our wedding in June 2013, and I wouldn't change my photographer for anything in the world. The photos are AMAZING, but one thing that surprised me was how natural Scott and Cathy were able to be a part of our wedding, capture every special moment, without really being noticed. We had so many of our guests, including my parents, comment about how wonderful it was to have a photographer move about a room, getting the shots they need without taking away from the day. It was like we had friends there shooting our wedding, with an amazing end product!Sent on 11/17/2013

Ambiance Studios exceeded our expectations. In our search for a wedding photographer we were anxious to find someone who would be able to capture the essence of a winter wedding no matter what weather we were given on that day. We were blessed with a light beautiful snowfall that day and our pictures turned out better than we could have imagined! Scott and Cathy shot every detail, big and little, so effortlessly. Our pictures taken outside are breathtaking! Friends and family say our pictures remind them of a fairytale! Scott and Cathy's vision and drive to capture each detail with perfection makes them a head above the rest! Their technology, lighting and professionalism are truly showcased in their final product! Scott and Cathy were great to work with and made the day flow with ease! They were personable and their passion for photography was evident from the moment we met them. Their professionalism showed throughout the day as time was never an issue because they knew how to make each picture happen quickly and successfully. We are and will continue to recommend Ambiance Studios to everyone! It was one of the best decisions we made =)Sent on 09/10/2013

Scott and Kathy, with Ambiance Studios, made our wedding day absolutely perfect! They are so kind, patient, organized, and caring. Not only did our wedding pictures turn out perfect, but our complimentary engagement photo session turned out beautiful and we absolutely loved them. The pictures from our wedding turned out so more beautiful than we ever could have imagined. They are so experienced with weddings that they have their picture taking system down to a tee. If you are looking for a photographer who will care about not only your pictures, but making sure your day genuinely flows smooth and you stay on time while still getting all of your shots, these are the winners! Their advanced equipment combined with all of their investment in training courses give them an incredible edge, along with incredibly creative pictures and shots. They do a wonderful job of capturing all of those special moments throughout your night without making themselves a major part of the event (even though they are ). With all of the planning we put into our wedding, the best thing we did for ourselves was picking incredible photographers to be able to provide to us most beautiful pictures and keepsakes from our most important day!! Thank you Scott and Kathy for everything you have done for us! We are excited to start putting together our gorgeous photo album book!Sent on 12/24/2012

We hired Ambiance Studios for my daughter’s wedding on June 9, 2012. It was such a pleasure to meet and work with Scott and Cathy Erickson of Ambiance Studios. They are exceptional people, photographers and artists! Scott and Cathy are professional and friendly and immediately put you at ease and make you feel like family. Their excellent technical skills and lighting knowledge produce amazing photographs that are admired by all that view them. The numerous amounts of stunning images (over 2000) made it difficult to choose. In fact the shots that they took were so amazing that some of the images were used in a local Wisconsin Wedding Magazine. This was just the icing on the cake for my daughter. To see the photographs in the magazine just added to the joyful magic that the wedding captured. I will never be able to fully express my gratitude for the beautiful work Ambiance Studios completed for my daughter’s wedding. The photographs were of the highest quality and all of the shots exceed our expectations. I highly recommend Ambiance Studios and Scott and Cathy Erickson if you are looking to have memories that you will treasure for a lifetime use Ambiance Studios for your wedding!Sent on 12/28/2012

We loved your work form the moment we saw it. Thank you for making our day so memorable. We appreciate all your help throughout the planning process. The quality and workmanship of the photos are so amazing we are having trouble picking photos for our book. Thank you. When rating Scott and Cathy, a 5 is too low.

My husband Dave and I loved everything about Scott and Cathy! They were so nice, and professional. We also loved that they were a husband and wife team, so it made the whole process feel more intimate. They had great ideas of places to take our pictures, and they were so creative with different poses we could do! Everything ran so smoothly on the big day, and as the bride I felt I was in great hands. As some one who is very particular about punctuality, as far as that goes they were amazing! We would absolutley reccommend them to friends, and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again for another special occasion. Thanks again for all your guys amazing work!!Sent on 03/07/2012

Ambiance Studios by Scott and Cathy Erickson's reply:Aww thank you Hailey and Dave! You both were amazing too! Scott and I had so much fun at your wedding. From the start to finish. Loved stating at your parent's house for pictures of you getting ready and your fashion shoot. Hailey you wedding gown was so beautiful and loved your shoes and jewelry. You looked so beautiful. Was sweet seeing the look on your Dad and Dave's face when they saw you in your dress for the first time. And your parents, wedding party and guest were awesome as well. Everyone made us feel like part of the family. At the end of the day we felt like we knew everyone and made so many new friends.

Our wedding was on a chilly Wisconsin winter day. Not only was it cold, it continually snowed the entire day. Scott and Cathy did such a great job capturing all the beautiful details the day had to offer even with the unique weather conditions. We never realized how great pictures could look in a snow storm. One of our favorite photos is of us outside of our venue at night with the snow still falling. The snow looks like crystals in the sky. The photos are truly amazing. Our friends had Scott and Cathy for their wedding and had only great things to say about them. After we saw their pictures we knew that we had to have them for our wedding. The moment we met them we knew they were special. They are so delightful and enjoyable. They made us feel like family. It was calming to know that on our wedding day we did not have to worry that they would miss any important people or details. All of our photos are wonderful. We couldn’t have wished for anything better. We highly recommend Scott and Cathy to anyone who truly wants not only beautiful pictures, but great people who care about you and your special day!Sent on 07/17/2012

The photos that these guys took were amazing. Made us look and feel like a million bucks. We have had so many positive comments on our pictures. Scott and Cathy took so many great pictures that it was hard to narrow them down for our book!
Karla · Married on 11/27/2010
Finding a good photographer was the one aspect of the wedding in which my fiance was truly invested, so we did some rather extensive research before selecting someone. We were initially drawn to the photojournalism style of Ambiance Studios and we were thrilled to find out they were available on our wedding day! We had read nothing but fantastic reviews and had fallen in love with the work on their website and blog, and after meeting with them at their home studio we knew they were the perfect fit for us.Sent on 01/30/2011
Scotty and Cathy Ann were very careful to make sure they were capturing our day as we had imagined, and after seeing our pictures we are certain they have done just that! Instead of just pretty snapshots of the day, these photos tell the story of our wedding, and we could not be happier. They are extremely professional and personable, and their assistant Alisha's work is equally as brilliant. We are very grateful to have found someone whose talent, style and passion gave us the opportunity to remember our wedding day just as it was-- and to be able to share those memories with our family and friends! I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of working with Scott and Cathy Ann, and I would highly recommend using ther studio for any photography needs! I also would highly reccomend adding Alisha, their assistant. She was wonderful and I am so glad that we decided to add her.

My husband and I looked at EVERY vendor for photography while planning our wedding. To me, the photographer was the most important part my wedding because they capture your whole day and provide a beautiful book that hold all your special wedding memories. My step dad is a photographer so naturally I asked him to help me pick out the best one (since I wanted him to enjoy the wedding and not have to shoot pictures). We went to all the wedding shows and found Ambiance Studios at the Washington County fair grounds wedding show. Immediately I fell in love. Their pictures were crystal clear and very unique. Their books were by the far the best I had seen in all my search. I fell in love with the fact they were from Italy and the covers of the books were sensational! The best part was meeting Scott and Cathy. They were definitely the sweetest couple I had met and I liked that it would be 2 of them shooting my wedding and not just 1. I was sold. I booked with them right away and have never regretted it since this day. I even signed up for a 3rd photographer (their associate alyssa) and that was even better because she was so friendly. To this day, I am still very good friends with Scott and Cathy. I even helped them at a couple wedding shows handing out brouchers and helping brides make the right decision by choosing Ambiance Studios. I even got to wear my wedding dress again at the shows! I'm so blessed to have had the pleasure of meeting these 2 wonderful photographers and hope other brides out there can too! Definitely recommend them to every bride!Sent on 03/31/2012

Scott and Cathy Erickson of Ambiance Studios was an absolute pleasure to work with. From our first meeting with them to the last picture they took of us, they were professional, helpful, and caring.Sent on 01/19/2011
Scott and Cathy Erickson were the perfect photographers for our wedding. We actually had 3 photographers total, Scott, Cathy, and their assistant photographer Alisha. Alisha was a great help during the day. Not only did she take a number of great shots that turned out fabulous, she helped with all the little things so the day went that much smoother. She helped organize who was going to be in what shot next, and helped position people for posed shots. When she wasn’t helping with that, she was right in the mix with Scott and Cathy capturing great pictures. It was really nice to have 3 photographers at our wedding. We have so many great shots from so many different angles. That is something you just can’t get with 1 or 2 photographers. Some of our favorite shots are of our first kiss. We have 3 amazing shots from 3 completely different angles, they look awesome. We would highly recommend adding Alisha to your package. The service she provides outweighs the price by far.
Back to Scott and Cathy. As I said, they were a true pleasure to work with. We got along with them so well. What first attracted us to them was their amazing ability to catch the “perfect” candid shots. Their photo-journalistic style really appealed to us. When we visited their studio to discuss our wedding we didn’t feel like we were taking up their time. We felt welcomed and we felt at home. We often got side tracked during our conversations and talked like friends. That proved to be very important to us. We became extremely comfortable with Scott and Cathy, it felt like we had known them for years. This allowed us to relax and be us on our wedding day. We didn’t stress about the photography at all. We knew we were in good hands. We had very high expectations of Scott and Cathy after we saw all the great work they have done in the past. In the end we were not disappointed. Everything turned out fabulous! Our engagement session was wonderful…… it was cold out side, but it turned out great!
The wedding pictures were and are amazing. We have gotten so many compliments on our pictures. We think they are a perfect representation of our day, and we love the pictures and will cherish them for a lifetime!
A few of our friends and relatives have made comments that these pictures turned out vastly better than other local photographers that charged the same prices.
During the wedding we hardly noticed any of the photographers. When we got the pictures my husband and I literally said “Wow, that is an awesome shot, I never even noticed one of the photographers was even there!”
If we had to do it all over again we would not change a thing.
Scott and Cathy Erickson and Alisha proved to be the perfect combination for the perfect results on our wedding day.
Ambiance Studios by Scott and Cathy Erickson's reply:Aww Thank You, Scott and I LOVED working with you both. From the first look to your first dance, the looks in your eyes was magical and it showed through your pictures and your whole day. Everyone made us feel like part of the family. Everything was amazing, from the venues, the decor, the food, the flowers, the music, everything was fabulists!!

We loved having Scott and Cathy Ann as our photographers for our wedding. They did an amazing job and our pictures turned out better than I could have imagined. They were very professional and made sure we had all the pictures we wanted. Their photojournalism is a different approach and a great one!

Cathy and Scott were amazing to work with! I can't give them anything but a 5/5 in everything!! It has been over a year since our wedding, and we still have people ooing and aahhhing over our wedding picture on facebook! They are very creative and know exactly how to capture those special moments throughout your special day. Their portfolio pretty much sums up the excellent work they do, but I must say that they are truly amazing to work with! They have a lot of ideas, but they are always open to your ideas as well. They are great at learning your style and capturing images that will appeal to you.Sent on 11/03/2011
If they are available on your wedding date, just go ahead and book them, I promise you that your photos will be above and beyond your imagination!

Deanne · Married on 10/24/2009
Scott and Cathy Erickson were our photographers for our wedding last year and they did an amazing job. We were having a hard time finding the right photographer for us but were lucky enough to find them two months before our wedding. As part of the package we had a photo shoot with them before the wedding so that our guests could sign a photo of us at the wedding reception. There were numerous guests at the reception that complimented us on the photo that we chose from that shoot.Sent on 01/25/2011
On the day of the wedding they spent the morning with the bride taking photos of her getting ready prior to the wedding that truly captured the emotion of that day. The photos from the actual wedding were breathtaking and looking back we were truly blessed to have two photographers that day as they were able to capture so many moments from different perspectives. After the wedding they took additional photos of us, our family and the wedding party. They made the experience fun for us and while they did take the posed photos that we requested they were also very creative with their photography in order to capture the true emotional impact of that day. At the wedding reception we hardly knew that they were there but they were able to capture so many great moments and after seeing all the pictures they took online I knew our money was well spent.
Their service after the wedding was also very good. They were able to provide us with thank you cards in a timely manner using two photos from our wedding day. Deciding which photos to use in our wedding book was also a challenge because there were so many good ones but with their help and suggestions we were able to choose the right photos and Scott did a tremendous job developing the wedding book. When we actually saw our wedding book in person words could not describe how satisfied we were. We have now shown the book to a number of family members and they all have great things to say about it. I can’t wait to show our kid(s) some day. Highly recommended.
Ambiance Studios by Scott and Cathy Erickson's reply:Aww thank you Deanne and Craig. Scott and I are honored that you selected us to photograph and capture the story of your day. Everyone was wonderful to work with and made us feel like part of the family. Everything was truly amazing; the Venues, the Flowers, the Caterer, Entertainment, Formal wear and WOW your Wedding Gown was amazing! You looked stunning! I especially love the one Scott captured of your Mom blowing you a kiss when Dad was walking you down the aisle.

Cathy and Scott were so flexible and easy to work with. They fit as much as they possibly could into the short amount of time I gave them. They were always easy to get ahold of and were quick to respond with any questions I had. Cathy had a keen eye and was always positioning my dress for pics so I didn't have to. They were awesome and really made my day even more incredible. Thanks guys!Sent on 07/01/2015
