"Peter was absolutely amazing to work with both on engagement photos and for our wedding. Such a talented eye and cares enough to scout his locations to create a vision before we even began. He is one of those photographers that you barely notice at the reception/ceremony as he discreetly photographs everything and his work is simply amazing. His candid shots - both of us, our family and various guests were simply fantastic. He was opportunistic - ushering us out for a few sunset shots that are absolutely stunning. A very respectful individual with a very calm and "in control" demeanor who does not bark orders but listens to ideas and makes them better. Peter thank you so much for your incredible work!" - Stacy and Alex
"We are beyond happy that we selected Peter A. Wagner Photography to take the photos of my daughter's wedding. He was great to work with - friendly, professional, and seemed to be everywhere to catch every moment. The sneak previews started arriving just two days after the wedding and they truly exceed expectations. If you haven't already done it, book him before it's too late." - Brenda
"Mother of the Bride here and I just have to say that Peter did an AMAZING job capturing our daughter's wedding!!! The pictures caught every precious moment just beautifully and then went beyond to really get the feel & vibe of the entire day, which was joy and love filled to the max! We are also a happy, funny family and he got those moments too! Just an amazing blend of precious memories and I know our daughter & son in law couldn't be more happy with the results! You know how busy a wedding can get and how busy the bride & groom can be, but somehow this photographer worked around all that with grace & simplicity and produced memories for a lifetime. I cannot strongly recommend this gentleman enough."
- Andrea and Michael
"Peter was beyond amazing on our Wedding Day! We couldn't have been happier with how calm and creative he was to get amazing shots for us. We are very happy with our wedding photos and would highly recommend him for your big day!" - Shannon and Eder
"Peter captured our engagement photos as well as our wedding day photos and we have nothing but positive things to say about him and his artistry! Peter was so easy to work with and made us instantly feel comfortable. He was easy to contact with quick responses. Our photos and wedding video are absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend hiring Peter; you won't regret it!" - Jenna and Joe
"I can't say enough great things about Peter! Peter did our engagement photos and our wedding photos. Both turned out better than we could have ever imagined. We constantly get asked about who did our photos and people telling me they referred their friends or family to Peter after seeing our photos. He has an ability to take a single moment and turn it into a wow-factor photo. I will forever cherish the work he did because he captured the emotions of the day so well, it almost feels like I am there reliving it again when I look through them-which is a must when that day literally is over in what seems like a blink of an eye! He also put together a slide show of our day -it brought tears to my eyes. Words can't express how grateful we are to have found Peter and have had him there with us capturing all of our moments, big and small! I met with multiple photographers before finding Peter and his packages were the most reasonable for our budget. He also gives you your photos to keep and do what you wish with instead of forcing you to order every print through him, like most other photographers do. We very much look forward to working with Peter again in the future!"
- Jennifer and Dave
"Peter is amazing! He is wonderful to work with and perfectly captured every moment of our special day. His photo style is vibrant and stunning and he goes the extra mile to find fun and creative ways to get the perfect shot. He is very reasonably priced and the quality and service we received was top notch and beyond expectations. We get so many compliments on our wedding album and love reliving our day shot by shot. Thank you Peter!" - Jill and Dan
"Working with Peter was one of the best decisions I ever made during the wedding planning process. His skills, passion, and fun personality truly shine in every photograph that he shoots. My husband and I knew he would be the perfect photographer for our wedding the moment we met him. He ensured we felt comfortable in front of the camera and enjoyed the process of taking each photograph. There are so many beautiful pictures and he really captured the love and energy of our wedding. Peter did our engagement photos too. We are more than pleased with both. He made suggestions on how to pose and which angles/lighting were best for us. Couldn't be more happy that we invested in this great photographer!" - Vanessa and Adam
"I am almost beyond having words to describe how amazing Peter is! Peter captured every moment of our wedding with absolutely stunning pictures. Peter is very professional and is also super fun to have around! I went to photography school and was pretty demanding on my list of photographic preferences, and he met them 100% and without complaint. Peter is organized, punctual, very creative and extremely knowledgeable in his photography skills. Many photographers I looked at made me feel as if I would want to be checking what they were shooting throughout the night, but I had 100% faith that Peter would go way above and beyond my expectations. I am so so pleased with his work, I want to get married all over again! SERIOUSLY - check him out!" - Kiersten and Henry
"Neither myself nor my (now) husband are the biggest fan of taking pictures, so finding a photographer for our wedding already seemed like it was going to be a difficult task. Additionally, our wedding was a large, very non-traditional, outside wedding, mostly taking place at night, with a lot of various activities happening simultaneously and all with weird lighting situations. We had no idea who we were going to hire that would be able to work with us, being fussy as we are about pictures, and also be able to capture the spirit of our wedding (which was really a higher priority for us, honestly). Peter absolutely nailed it in every possible way. The pictures are all, of course, absolutely gorgeous, but more than that - they encapsulate everything that we worked so hard for our wedding to be. He was unbelievably easy to work with, especially on a day that can be so stressful, and is genuinely a very cool and lovely person with a massive talent for capturing detail. From the moment we met him, we knew he just "got" us and understood what we were trying to achieve, and we were so very lucky to find him. According to my husband, he "made getting married 'fun'" :-). We have recommended him highly to all of our friends getting married in the upcoming years, and after seeing our pictures - they are excited to work with him as well!" - Nicole and Tim
"We cannot say enough good things about Peter as our wedding photographer! He was very accommodating, patient, and creative. The photos turned out perfect -- they were so beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. Peter is also a great guy and clearly enjoyed shooting our wedding. We give him our highest recommendation -- you can't go wrong having Peter as your photographer." - Amanda and Kyle
"Peter is an amazing photographer. He was flexible and enjoyable to work with. His pictures are stunning. He took the right mix of posed and candid shots; exactly what we were looking for. And on top of his great work and affable nature, the price was right too!" - Maren and Ryan
"I was looking for a photographer with reasonable rates without sacrificing quality and stumbled upon Peter! Peter was professional, yet personable at the same time. Before the wedding, we were provided a thorough questionnaire that allowed us to specify exactly what we wanted for our big day. I was very impressed with all of the photographs from the wedding, as well as the preview albums and videos. If you're looking for beautiful pictures at a fair price, Peter is your guy!" - Cassandra and Austin
"Choosing Peter as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We are so pleased with our photos and he made the experience so comfortable and easy. He accommodated all of our goofy requests and was incredibly patient while we wrangled our families. He is very good at what he does." - Abby and Patrick
"Peter completely exceeded our expectations throughout not one, but two wedding ceremonies. He photographed our small private ceremony, which was basically our engagement session, along with our full blown church ceremony and reception months later. Both days are now documented in stunning dimension - his candid shots are every bit as wonderful as the planned ones, and he has an eye for creating beautiful shots on the fly. He was extremely friendly, professional, and seemed just as excited for the occasion as we were. A few weeks later, he delivered a huge assortment of photos online. Please take a look at his website and enjoy some of his past work, and rest assured he will document your day with the same care and quality." - Mary Kate and Daniel
"Whether you live in Wisconsin or in Iceland, Peter is the most flexible, accommodating, and professional photographer we've had the pleasure of working with. We live in Hawaii, and we were planning our Wisconsin wedding ourselves thousands of miles away. Peter was incredibly flexible. He was willing to work with us and meet our needs to the best of his abilities. He was very organized. His questionnaire not only helped him figure out what we wanted, but it also gave us ideas on how we wanted our wedding photographed. Peter takes so much pride in his craft and it shows in his work. On our wedding day, he came early and stayed until he knew he had captured our entire day the best it could possibly be captured. Because of Peter, we will have amazing pictures of our special day that we will have for the rest of our lives. We know our grandchildren and their grandchildren will see our pictures and know without a doubt that we love each other to the moon and back because his pictures portray it. We recommend Peter Wagner to anyone and everyone that wants their wedding professionally photographed." - Angie and Rhandy
"I was incredibly picky about finding the right photographer. We were engaged for a year before we had our engagement photos taken, and that was after I found Peter. He is an amazing photographer. He's beyond personable- he's inviting, he listens to what you want, helps you figure it out, and does everything he can to make sure he gives you exactly what you wanted and then some. We had him for 10 hours for our wedding and I love every single picture he gave us. He captured moments and people in those moments that I will cherish forever and was able to do it in a way that people saw the pictures and would say, "I didn't even realize he was right there! That picture is awesome!" Thank you, Peter, for being such a wonderful photographer." - Brianna and Dustin
"Peter photographed both our December (local) and April (destination to Mexico) weddings. He captured some great moments of both myself and my husband...but also of our guests! The candid photos were great! The night photos are my and my husband's favorite! Peter did an absolutely amazing job with the night shots with the lighting and capturing the stars!!
Peter was very professional and ensures he got all of the shots we requested. We asked him to use his professional judgement and I was glad we did because the pictures turned out better than I imagined. Peter has an eye for some truly beautiful shots with regards to background, lighting, and posing.
He was always on time and very responsive to my texts and emails. Since we were so busy planning 2 ceremonies...one local and one destination within 4 months...I asked him to remind me of the things he needed and he would which was super helpful!
I felt my money was more than well spent with him being our photographer. I highly recommend him to anyone who is getting married as you will be more than pleased with him. He has so much passion, vision, and talent for this field. Any bride and groom will feel as though he captured the most special moments of their first day as one!! I know I did!" - Kelly and Dave
"Peter is one of the most talented photographers in WI without a doubt. He is extremely personable while remaining professional throughout the entire joyful expedition. My wife and I were so fortunate to find such a great photographer who was willing to do whatever it took to capture that perfect shot, at that perfect time. We can NOT say enough positive things about our experience with having Peter as our photographer on our most special day! Thank you just does not do the experience justice. Contact Peter if you want a wonderful person documenting the most wonderful day of your life!" - Andrea and Michael
"I wish I could give this man 10 Stars he is a true saint! When looking for our photographers I ran onto Peter’s beautiful website. I was stunned at how amazing his photos were and the price he was asking was such a great deal. I had also heard that he will be direct so you can make sure you get a great photo every time which was the most important thing in a photographer to me.
Peter was truly amazing to work with! He showed up early and stayed later then we had asked just to make sure that he got all the pictures we wanted . Peter has great attention to detail and was very creative in his work. Peter has an eye for beauty, and captured everything perfectly! Everything was happening so fast during the wedding that it was all a blur for us but thankfully Peter was there to capture so many great moments...Moments we didn't even know existed until we looked through all of our pictures. It's like we're reliving our wedding again!
I have already looked at our wedding photos dozens of times. I knew Peter did wonderful work, but he definitely exceeded our expectations!! So many of our family and friends have complimented on the quality, creativity and the quantity of the pictures.
Peter was such a pleasure to work he is such a nice guy and he really focused on what we wanted! I can't say enough great things about him! He is the best decision you will make for your wedding! This was a big investment for our wedding but it was worth every penny and more! And while you and your new husband or bride are socializing with your family and friends at the wedding, rest assure that Peter will capture every moment so you don't have to worry about anything and just enjoy your wedding! We will definitely keep in contact with Peter!" - Jennilyn and Nick
"Peter was a real joy to have as a photographer, he was prompt and kept everyone on schedule even without any assistant he was able to preform all that we asked for and more.
Also he was very flexible when my wife and I wanted different pictures taken that were not planned. Also his ability to sneak around to get in the moment shots was astounding!!! I would suggest him to anyone looking for a top notch photographer!" - Katie and Phil
"Peter was a delight to work with. He really listened to what we wanted and was very creative with his angles, lighting, and various scenes. I didn't realize how much he moved around until I looked at the pictures and thought "Man, he must have been RUNNING the entire time!" - Becky and Joe
"Amazingly friendly, personable and talented photographer will make your day special!
Peter has an amazing eye for photography and it's easy to see that it is his true passion. He is so easy to work with and a true professional. He made my wife and I feel so comfortable on our wedding day and I'm pretty sure he even had a little bit of fun :) I will always recommend Peter and his amazing photography skills to anyone in need as there is no way you could be disappointed with his services!"
What an amazing guy Peter is! We had so much fun with him! He made us feel like models! It seems effortless for him to get some pretty amazing stuff! He also does some pretty flexible things to get the shots he wants which was hilarious!! When he wasn't taking our portraits he was mingling among the guests but I don't see him in one single picture that our guests have posted! He is the invisible photo beast!!!
- Stacey and Mary Jo
"Peter photographed our courthouse elopement in Milwaukee. He was wonderful! From his communication beforehand, he got to know us and what we were looking for. On the day, he jumped right into action, arranging detail shots and posing us as we got ready in our hotel room. He was totally game to jump in a Lyft, find great-looking nooks and crannies in the courthouse, lie on the Milwaukee sidewalk in March to get a great shot, and go to a dive bar in the middle of the day (those are some of my favorite pictures). His laidback and fun personality made it easy to loosen up in front of the camera. The finished photos are beautiful and just what we wanted. We'll enjoy them for many years to come. I would 100% recommend Peter for your wedding photos." - Annika and David
"I think it took us a whole year to write a review because we have been so busy looking at all our amazing wedding photos all the time! Peter is amazing to work with! He is super responsive and professional and passionate about what he does. He was really detail oriented to all of our plans leading up to the wedding. On our wedding day, he was super fun to work with and made us feel really comfortable (and attractive). At the end of the day, he felt like another one of our friends. Above all, Peter does amazing work and we are obsessed with all of our photos. Look no further for a wedding photographer! Peter is a great choice!" - Caitlyn and Jake
"Peter completely exceeded our expectations of what our wedding photos could be. We were hoping for some good documentation, and said as much to Peter, and that was kind of it. We didn’t want to spend hours walking around taking photos because the day was already chock full and we wanted to spend that time with family and friends. Peter not only respected our wishes but also somehow pulled off some of the best photographic moments, with us as the stars, completely effortlessly. He made us look like old Hollywood movie stars!!! (Which was kind of a little bit of the day's look in the long run). While he was taking them, I wasn’t thinking about what we were doing, he had great ideas and lead us through a few photo shoots that were well worth the small amount of time we spent away from friends and fam. Not to mention, he also photographed some great “in the moment” moments and basically documented the whole day extremely well, beautifully, and with a beautiful creative eye that matched what we were going for. On top of all of this, he was easy to communicate with before, during, and after the wedding date. Having him release some of the photos online on social media was fun and made things easy. That’s where people like to share them anyway so that was great. We loved working with Peter. Definitely highly recommend!" - Sadie and Patrick
"We hired Peter for both our engagement photos as well as our wedding day for the reasons that we really liked him as person, loved his bright and colorful style, and that he brings a lighting assistant. We are so pleased with everything and do not have anything negative to say at all. He captured all of our moments perfectly, he is so nice and easy to work with. Neither one of us are real fond of getting our picture taken but Peter always made it easy - found different poses where we were comfortable, made us laugh and would do whatever it took to get the right shot. Nothing was missed from getting our emotions during the ceremony to the awesome detail pictures of our rings and our venue decorations. He also offers the bonus of a combination of pictures and silent videos taken throughout the wedding day which he then sets to music. If you book with Peter, you will not be let down in the slightest." - Katie and Brian
"Peter did our wedding photos, and we couldn't be more pleased with them. We found Peter through The Knot and loved his work. After talking to him we knew he was a good fit for us. He always triple checked details, which made our day all the more memorable and less stressful. Even when our ideal photo location fell through, Peter quickly came up with a plan B that was just our style. Thank you so much Peter!!!!" - Dee and Adam
"A million stars/thumbs up/yessss' to Peter A. Wagner Photography. He does amazing, out of this world work. We met Peter through a family friend and instantly knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding. He is such a fun, nice, down to earth guy- he is outstanding! Even my husband, who is not a picture guy said how great Peter was. I highly recommend him to everyone I know." - Sarah and Nick
"We knew right away we wanted the best for our wedding photos, and Peter A. Wagner Photography didn’t disappoint. Peter isn’t just a photographer, he’s an artist. He showed up on time, expressed excitement and passion for his work, made the whole wedding party feel comfortable, and even moved his way about the dance floor without disrupting the party. In addition, his release of a sneak peek photo was loved by all, causing gasps of surprise at its great beauty and artistry. His efficiency was outstanding as well. As a type A bride, I was amazed how we were able to get all the shots we needed and more in the time we had. He worked with us well as we went about our day, all the while ahead of schedule. We would not have had the smooth and effortless wedding our family compliments us on if it weren’t for Peter. He will be our photographer for life." - Jessica and Eric
"Photographs are one of the best ways to capture a moment to relive. Years later, looking at a photo can allow one to feel all the emotions and connections. There is no more special a day than one's wedding day, so having a great wedding photographer is essential. There are a myriad of wedding photographers out there; each photographer is undoubtedly competent with knowledge of technical aspects of camera, framing, and lighting. What makes Peter stand out from all the rest is his professional, calm, and comfortable demeanor. He worked hard to slip seamlessly into our wedding day, getting great shots of us, and of our family and friends. It was very simple to schedule him for our wedding day, and he went above and beyond to get us the pictures encompassing the entire experience. I truly was surprised he was able to do so much by himself; the resulting pictures rivaled my friends' wedding photos that utilized multi person photography teams. A wedding day can be hectic on its own, and having a demanding photographer can add to that stress. Peter is able to get beautiful shots without adding to the stress. My wife and I are really happy with how all the photos turned out. The lighting, the positioning, the tilt of our faces were all top notch. We feel that it captured the feelings of our wedding day perfectly. We highly recommend Peter!" - Anne and Kevin
"I am not photogenic and I don't like being in front of a camera. Peter made me feel at ease with his casual demeanor and got excellent pictures while doing it. He guided us through everything and took any photos we wanted. Peter is genuinely a pleasure to be around and is very talented. I would (and have) recommended him to my friends and would gladly work with him again in the future. Thanks, Peter!" - Emma and Ben
"We were very impressed with Peter at every step of the process. He responded promptly to questions. He had researched our venue and had ideas of pictures he wanted to take. He had us fill out a detailed questionnaire that allowed us to tell him our preferences for types of pictures, etc for the day of the wedding. He was also very good at floating around and catching pictures of our guests and not being intrusive. He finished all of our pictures within 6 weeks or so and then hand delivered them to our house. He was a pleasure to work with and we are incredibly happy with our pictures." - Arianna and Steffan
