We all want to be your friend and extra bridesmaid to ensure an enjoyable stress-free day for YOU - because you only get to live this day once!
A hometown girl that loves celebrating both your big life moments and precious little memories with you! I've been the "girl with a camera in her hand" since middle school but didn't pursue photography professionally until 5 years ago! Since 2016, we've had the pleasure of capturing countless breathtaking weddings and celebrations, beautiful families, gorgeous seniors and incredible brands!
I'm one of those people who make my way to the back of every store to the clearance rack to find the best deals, always talking about my Peloton workouts, dress up my dog in ridiculously adorable) outfits, and always ready to adventure to a new spot for your photos!
Born and raised in the beautifully historic Iron Mountain, MI. In 2009, I took a detour to study in the dairy loving and football fanatic town of Green Bay, WI - just to later return to my small hometown 5 years later. Nothing beats little traffic and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan views.
I’m the newest member of the team and so excited to start this photography journey! I’ve known the Bianchi family since I can remember. Vicki’s done my hair for many years and I graduated high school with Betsy’s husband/Ciera’s brother. Our lives have been intertwined forever so it will be a family affair!
I’m a teacher by day and circus leader at night with three very active little children under the age of 5! Needless to say, I’ve chased around my kids with a camera bribing them with fruit snacks and M&Ms for years! When I’m not following around my 2 boys and little girl, you can find me justifying to my husband the amount of Amazon packages that just arrived at our front door, riding my Peloton or running with my friend, Jamie! As a family, we love adventure! In the summer, we enjoy traveling to all of the Great Lakes beaches with the cleanest water and gorgeous scenery and hiking the breathtaking waterfalls of the Upper Peninsula and Northern Wisconsin. On the rare occasion my husband and I have a childfree day, we love to golf, eat pesto fries from Spiro’s and stop by for a Batti Millie at 51st State Brewery!
I’m a hometown girl growing up in Iron Mountain and settling in Norway with my family. As a winter bride married to my husband for 7 years and standing by family and friends on their wedding day, I’m looking forward to being behind the camera and capture all those special moments that I know first hand are treasured for years to come!
Hi! Ciera's sister-in-law here, Betsy! I'm honored to be a part of this team and to work along side my family doing what we love. In my 9-5 life, I work in marketing at an international company in Green Bay, Wisconsin. When not taking photos for weddings with Ciera or for my own photography business, Betsy Bianchi Photography, or at work, I truly enjoy the simple things in life. I love to spend time in the kitchen cooking up meals for my husband and me, reading, or just obsessing over our four-pound bundle of joy and pup Ruby. Oh, and my husband tells me I spend too much time (and money...) at Target.
I grew up on the coast of beautiful Lake Michigan in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, ventured down to the windy city of Chicago for college, and then found my way to the frozen tundra of Green Bay. That's where I met Ciera's brother, Chad, and where we were married in June 2017 and welcomed our sweet little boy in May. I feel a great privilege being able to capture a couple's special day. I can't wait to meet you and help tell your love story to the world!
My greatest accomplishment has been watching my two children, Chad and Ciera, along with my new daughter-in-law, Betsy, grow into happy and healthy adults. My husband, Mike, and I have been married for 40 years come this June so I know firsthand how important your special commitment to each other will be for you now and in the years to come!
For 30+ years, I've owned and operated my own hair salon specializing in bridal styles. I will be on hair duty at all times during the day to ensure your bangs are swept out of your face and add in an extra bobby pin or two to keep your style in place for all of your wedding portraits!
Over the years, I've specialized in event planning for numerous occasions and fundraisers for numerous local charities. I'm an avid exercise fanatic teaching aerobics in the local community for over 20 years.
My real passion is helping others especially children - which is why I love assisting during not only weddings but family sessions too!
We strive to be SO much more than just your photographers. See us hard at work behind the scenes!
