Opening a small business might seem like a big step for some people, but Ron Wimmer had seen enough in his life to take a risk. After traveling the world as a photojournalist for five years, Wimmer returned home and opened his first professional studio. He moved his family and studio to the Midwest in 1994, and he has since kept busy doing what he loves: capturing intimate moments from behind the camera. Today, Wimmer works both on location and in a Wauwatosa-based, 2500-square-foot studio, snapping photographs of individuals, groups, and families, among many other subjects.
The eponymous shuttersnapper at Laura Couture Photography captures candid moments of tykes and transforms them into snazzy portraits and prints. Like a sundial wristwatch, the dedicated photographer works with only 100% natural light, expertly nabbing the pure, unadulterated bliss of childhood with sunlit flair. Each on-location session lasts approximately 60 minutes, with an unlimited fount of precious images captured in each shoot. Within four weeks, customers receive an email containing a link, password, and secret knock allowing access to an online gallery of the results. Once they pick out their four favorite slices of life, doting parents receive a high-quality set of prints (within 3–4 weeks), along with a pair of digital images to show off to adoring robot nannies.
