With up to 24 backdrops available, owners Ron and Gloria can whisk their portrait subjects to exotic locales and landscapes without annoying photo bombs by the Grand Canyon. The studio’s various props—including school desks, picnic baskets, and fire trucks—also allow the skilled picture takers to create vivid, unique scenes.

Since graduating at the top of her class from Milwaukee Area Technical College with an associate’s degree in photography, Amber Pheifer has harnessed her image-capturing know-how in countless in-studio and on-location sessions. Alongside her husband Ryan, who handles Pheifer Photography’s business end, Amy works from a handicapped-accessible in-home studio nestled on the pair’s five-acre property. Within one to two weeks after shoots, Amy reconnects with clients for a viewing session, when they determine which pictures deserve prominence as prints, high-quality digital images, or self-destructing holiday cards for secret agents. Pheifer Photography also immortalizes wedding days with a comprehensive package that begins with separate day-of shots of the bride and groom and continues through the Grand March.
